"But, isn't our failure the perfect place to start?
It leaves us empty, even despairing.
It leaves us hanging on by a thread for Easter, for resurrection, for renewal -
for someone to save us from this mess we've made.
It leaves us needing Him, more than ever."
I am feeling like a bit of a failure this Good Friday.
A failure in my spiritual life. My life as a believer.
So many good intentions...not nearly achieved.
Too many excuses for not doing the right thing.
Not enough time....for Him. For praise and worship.
For fellowship. For prayer.
I visited a blog the other and read the quote at the top of this post.
It ministered to me, it blessed me. It encouraged me so much.
What am I waiting for?
What better day than today to say to myself..."remember, you are redeemed in Christ"!
Not only has He paid for my past failures (something I seem to remember),
He's already paid for the failures going on right now too.
Edie's right....our failures are the perfect place to start. Our emptiness doesn't have to last.
As a believer, I have hope, I have the Resurrection, I am Renewed.
I am Redeemed.
