Day 22: Perfect


The hard TRUTH is that

I will fail you.

Now that is hard to say coming from a recovered PERFECTIONIST.

I have failed my husband.

I have failed my children.

I have failed my friends.

So does that make me a failure?

Oh you would think,

because aren't I supposed to be PERFECT

because I follow a PERFECT JESUS?

Oh because I fail is why I follow a PERFECT JESUS.

Does that mean that I have permission to fail others?

Oh no.

But as long as I am in this body

my flesh only knows how to fail

because

"Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall..."*

And that is why we have to HOPE~

"...but those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.
