But do I love them well?

I am thinking not.

Some I neglect
Some I abuse

Many I misunderstand

I am more faithless than faithful.

I talk too much and I pray too little.

Thanks be to Jesus, our Lord.
He is our only hope.

And He is enough to make all of it right. Someday. In the meantime all we can do is our best, even though it is never good enough and thank Him for His mercy and faithfulness. Thank Him for His perfect ways and that He was good enough to teach us about forgiveness.

Thank you, Lord. Purify us, strengthen us, make us more like You. For the glory of Your Name.

"In the meantime all we can do is our best, even though it is never good enough and thank Him for His mercy and faithfulness." AMEN!! I have been really beating myself up about some things, thinking I am not good enough, and I know I am NOT..but I am COVERED through HIM...so it is HIS goodness in me that makes me "good enough"...and He so often speaks to me through music, and right now, the chorus keeps going through my head: "hope, it is rising, it's a sunrise for the end, hope, it is rising, and it's breathing for me again." I LOVE THAT!! THANK YOU LORD!!

Thank you, Samantha.

Andresa, yes, I think satan will be very disappointed the day we decide to quit beating ourselves up, huh?

Kristi, I will send you an email soon!
