I use to beat myself up for not acting the way I felt was acceptable to glorify God, and would help others recognize the Good News of Salvation. Little by little it has sunk in I will never be a perfect example of what a Christ-follower should be. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and a perfect example of God’s love and provision of salvation and grace.
Sometimes I Fail
Sometimes I fail and fall short of what I should be.
And many flaws in my character I see.
My shortcomings are so clear,
If I dwell on them I begin to fear
I know at times my light shines dim.
And I need it seems to start all over again.
But when I begin to feel low,
Lord Your love again begins to flow.
You show me my value in Your eyes.
And remind me of Your sacrifice.
When You administer Your sweet touch,
It heals the brokenness and fills me up.
When I am weakest, You are my strength.
When my soul thirsts, You give me drink.
When I am overburdened You carry my part.
When lonely You remind me, You are in my heart.
When I fall You still do not cast me aside.
In my dark failures You see my heart’s cry.
In my circumstances, and the flaws that disgrace;
You see perfection, filtered through grace.
Help me Lord to not be discouraged, but to strive to overcome.
So I am a glory to Jesus when my life is done
I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah
