Jesus

On The Failure

oh….Dear……..Father. My emotions are so raw right now. My thoughts are harried. My heart beats in a confused rhythm. The wounds still fresh. 
Sometimes I just don’t know what to do with myself. My failures stack one on top of another, again and again, as if attempting to mimic the tower of Babel. Dumb idea, I know. But my sinful nature seems to definitely has a mind of its own–and a very powerful one at that. 
WHY, GOD, WHY do I keep doing the things I hate–the evil I see within me? Why do I cling so tightly to the Law of Sin and Death?
How is it possible to know the good I need to do, and even to WANT to do that good, but to fail to do it. 
Over.
and. 
Over.
again. 
But alas, I know the truth of the matter. I am sinful. I fail. I will keep failing. But I am not a FAILURE. My identity is found in You alone. 
What a wretched woman I am!! Who will rescue me from this body of death?! THANKS BE TO GOD! for it is through the grace given me by Jesus Christ our Lord.
