Everyday I fail, I am human, I am a sinner, I am not perfect… especially in my role as a mother and wife … every single day my sinfulness and human nature will cause me to fail…
It seems so futile that my study verse the last few weeks has been ‘I seek You with all my heart do not let me stray from your hand.’ Psalm 119:10. I had this verse in front of my eyes day in and day out and yet I still failed to truly seek God daily. Not the way I could have or should have.
How is it so easy to know in my mind something, but not be able to apply my knowledge through to my thoughts, words and actions?
Because separate from God I am weak!
When I am not truly seeking God with all my heart then I am not strong in the Lord. In these moments I am debilitated and powerless. The enemy knows when I am weak and he takes full advantage and he attacks, pulling me even farther from Christ and consumed in my sinfulness.
Here are some of my needed reminders for this week…
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
“I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will perish.” Luke 13:5
“Repent, then, and turn to God so that your suns may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3:19
“I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Luke 5:32
“My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.” Psalm 119:28
“Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” Psalm 62:6
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
I will not be defeated by my mistakes or shortcomings.
I will turn to God with a repentant heart and accept His forgiveness and grace.
I will not beat myself up and dwell on all the ways I have failed this day or this week.
I am so thankful for God’s love and presence in my life.
I will truly seek God with all my heart and find my strength for each moment of each day in Him!
