You are Doing Better Then You Think You Are

I think out of all of the characters in the bible, I relate to Peter the most. As much as I hate to admit it, I can be impulsive, obnoxious, and prideful at times lacking any ounce of humility. I find myself trying really hard to follow God, and then I let myself and God down because I mess up and sin.

I Think to myself, “man I have a lot to work on.” and I beat myself up for yet another failure on my part but it is in those moments that I hear my faithful God whisper, “yes you do have a lot of work to do but look at how you were last year.” That thought makes me smile to myself because I realize that I may not be doing so bad after all.

Next year I will probably find myself going through the same scenario and God will have to remind me of how far I have come yet again but that’s okay. This life will be full of growth. In this imperfect world I will constantly mess up because I am human and I am full of sin but that doesn’t mean I won’t stop trying.

Every moment I have on earth is an opportunity to grow, learn, and praise the Lord who made me new. Each day I get a little better and I believe that  I will continue to grow until the Lord takes me home. Maybe, like me, you feel inadequate.

I want you to know that God is looking at you smiling right now in this very moment. Contrary to what you might believe, you my friend are doing better than you think you are.

    Thank you for this. St. Peter is definitely the apostle that I relate most closely to. And I often feel like my progress is one step forward two steps back. But I also know that discouragement is the goal of the devil, so thank you for shifting the perspective back to God.
