It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by the long list of your weaknesses, things you don’t do well and failures. That’s why it’s tempting to pretend they don’t exist, try to overcompensate or work to ‘spin’ them into respectability so you won’t have to admit ‘reality’ to yourself, others or God. No wonder you’re exhausted, depleted and sometimes depressed! But what you despise, God sees as a wonderful opportunity to remind you just how much you need God, enable you to perceive God doing things you otherwise might not have the opportunity to see and help you to understand that it’s not about how good, accomplished or how impressive you are – it’s about how much you trust God. So do something completely counter-intuitive today: embrace your humanity as the divine gift of imperfection that miraculously opens you to the gift of God’s grace.
