I fail so much when it comes to my faith, and I continually find myself grateful that I have a God who redeems such failings, and yet in me is a pride that I struggle to let go: the pride of not forgiving myself.
I am so prone to this, and even in my actions of prayerfully confessing all of my sins to the God I claim to love know forgives if only I ask, I struggle so profoundly and deeply with this issue. I have assurance, and yet, I fail to see it. I have security and yet I choose not to feel it or experience it. It’s a foolish sin, I know. A foolish thing to claim freedom in faith, and in the same breath struggle to claim it at all. Yet, it’s so human.
So I ask for prayer for this, from whoever is willing to take a moment and do so on my behalf. Thank you.

I sent my fiancé a message this morning. A message that was extremely heartfelt, and I cannot contain my joy and my overwhelming realization on how close the wedding day is. It read: “Good morning my love. I prayed for … Continue reading →
“What would you recommend as a woman’s Bible Study activity?” “Bring in a guy who can teach us how to do our own oil changes.” “I’m asking seriously.” “I’m telling you seriously.” She was in complete disbelief. So I kept … Continue reading →
“In other words, real confession admits more than that we have done something wrong (like I have stolen or I have lied or I have cheated). Real confession, true confession, admits that I have done something to someone else…God waits … Continue reading →
