I like to think that I at least put on a good facade. I like to think that at least people see me like that. Alas, my family and friends know me for who am I am. They know me for my weaknesses and failings. Fortunately, they love me no matter what and help me to better myself. They are helping me to be the man I want to be. Hopefully, I help them be the person they strive to be.
I'm not trying to throw on some sorts of "pity party" or anything like like that. I'm just well aware of my feelings and know what my failings as well as my successes are. Instead, I would like to talk about how lucky I am. You see, no matter how many times I stumble and fall, I have hope. No matter how much of a wreck of a man I am, I can see success. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that I can always pick myself up and climb out of the rubble because I have Jesus helping me. I know that with the grace of God anything is possible.
I know that I have a long road ahead of me. I know I will get back on it only to trip and fall and go off the path several times. Fortunately, God is full of mercy and wants me to get to him.
Does anyone else ever feel like this?
