The Art of Forgiving Yourself 

we never purposely make mistakes, we just do what we think is best at the time. at least, that is how it is for me – i’ve always just done the best I knew how – yet sometimes only to look back and marvel at what a complete fool i was. 

but we pick ourselves up. & we learn and we move on.

Humility // He is God, I am not. 

Who are we, as mere man, to determine right from wrong? Our standards and our self perception are foolishness in the sight of God. And it is when we think we know better and elevate ourselves above the wisdom of God that pride has entered into our hearts. The foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom. His ways are higher than what we can fathom. It is utter ignorance and foolishness to declare that we know a better way than what God has provided for us through Christ Jesus. His word is final & all will be brought before His burning eyes one day. Far be it from me to scorn His ways and follow my own waywardness – only to regret it on that day when I stand before His throne.

At the end of the day, He is God and I am not. He is Creator and I am the dust formed by His hands. And it all boils down to whether we understand this one simple thing or, in pride, choose to rebel against it. 

As for me I will yield to my God in humility & worship Him in the reverence He is due.
