Listen, if you fear failure, and you struggle with, “why bother” and you get excited and you start things and then fall off the wagon, know this:
I am you.
And I understand and I get where you’re coming from. I fall, I fail, I figure it all out just to lose it. I’m tired a lot, too. But you know what? You are breathing, which means that you have time to change (and when I say “change” I don’t mean become another person with a totally different, magically new personality that no longer struggles, k?). What I’m saying is that we can keep going…keep trying. You have a choice whether or not you will give up. You can choose to dust yourself off and take another step. Everyday is a choice, and life is hard and we manage. But we don’t manage alone.
We have someone who stands in the gap for us, helping us to change from the inside out. We are already perfect for eternity in Jesus, so now every bit of this life is a process of being made new. He knit us together, He makes us new, and He never gives up when we the seams come loose.
You will fail, and you will come undone at times. It’s okay. Keep going.
