I am broken and flawed. I am far for being the ideal sister, daughter, friend, or wife that I continuously long to be. Daily, I struggle with finding kind words to say over nagging, hurtful remarks. To show acts of love over sighs of discontent. To live as Jesus did, rather than living for my own self control.
Finding myself so far from Jesus, and seeing the hardness of my heart is my first step towards creating the better version of me.
Stepping towards the version that loves unconditionally, and lives through grace. Who does not get frustrated over the trash that was not taken out or the dishes left on the table. Who has the patience to lend a needed helping hand or a listening ear. Who is no longer critical of herself, and finds inner peace and acceptance.
I want to live fully by way of Jesus. For in this, I will be the best person I can and shine a light on the world around me. Let the journey begin…
And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. – Romans 8:2 NLT
