I just listened to a song "Grace is Sufficient" by Shane and Shane. My gut reaction is: Is God's Grace Sufficient for me. Sure, Yes, should be my immediate answer. Often not, it isn't. I was reading yesterday in Journey magazine on a topic of perfection. While I sought perfection, I let all the good stuff go, trying to attain something I couldn't. Do I feel shame? Sure. Every time I screw up, it just reinforces my need for the Perfector and Finisher of my Faith.
When a friend told me I was "killing it at life"; I had to smile, for it's not what I feel. It's beyond flattering and motivating. But then I think, God, You must be doing something right.
God Bless you all.
