I am a Christian, not a Saint.

I am a Christian, not a Saint.

I have a prayer life, I try and seek God… I try and search his words before I make any move, but there are times when my flesh takes over and I do things my way… often to my own destruction.

I love my children , I would do anything for them, anything to protect them… but I do raise my voice at them, I do grow frustrated and I do yell…  I am more patient today than I have ever been, but I still lack.

I love my husband, I cherish him and respect him like no one else… but he does get on my nerves at times.

I love when my house is clean and fresh smelling… but with a husband, four children, and a full time job, more times than not… that isn’t what it looks and smells like.

I have courage, as a daughter of the one true King I like to be able to say I know my worth… but there are times when the enemy will use people to get to me, to break my confidence, to wear me down.

I try my best to love everyone with a Christ-like love, but there are times when people push just a little too hard and it makes it very difficult.

I know that my body is my temple… but it’s still flesh and bone, I do not exercise as often as I would like, and I do indulge in Caffeine and junk food.

I still get jealous, not as much as I used to, but I still do just the same.

I am human. I am a woman of God. I am not without fault. I am not perfect. I am a work in progress.

 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6

What a lovely post. For me it is about continual growth, not perfection, which is unattainable anyhow. As long as I am growing I am on the right course. It is good to take time to evaluate where we are in that, as you have done here. Happy New Year!
