I’m Not Perfect Or Holier Than Thou

Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living
has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence. 2 Cor 5:17

I am not perfect.  I am not holier than thou.  I am not better than you.  I don’t claim to be any of these things. 

I am saved by God’s grace alone.

I am a sinner.

Though I try hard not to sin.  I still do because I am a human being.  I still hurt.  I can still hurt others.  I may say the wrong things.  I don’t always make the right choices.

I am just like you.

I go to church because I want to.  I go because I enjoy it.  I go to worship my Lord.  I don’t go so I can appear to be a good person.  I don’t attend so others will be offended.  I don’t go to place myself upon a pedestal for others to see.

I write this blog to share my story with others.  Not so that you can think I am a good person.  I write because I love it.  I write because it helps me heal.  I write because I feel that is what I have been called to do right now.  I write because there is redemption and hope in my life story.  I write because I might be able to help just one person and that is what this blog is all about.

It’s about showing others that God can do anything.  In any situation.  Because He truly loves us.  Because he loves even me, even though I don’t deserve it. 

This is my life.  This is my story.

“For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not
by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance
for us to do ” (Eph. 2:8,9).

  1. It is often in the reasoning and the writing that revelation of God’s working in our hearts comes to us. May it be so that there will be a continuous revealing of revelation in your heart and you always have ‘food to share with the hungry’.
