v16 : Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
All my life I have never felt like I measured up. I’m not exactly sure why that is. Until a few years back when I realized that I will not ever measure up and that’s okay. At least not on my own!
I stopped looking to others for my worth. I stopped measuring myself by the yard stick I measured others by. Truthfully, if everyone was honest, my measurement of them was most likely greater than their measurement of themselves.
I will never arrive but I continue to move forward to Christ. He measures me great and worthy. He measures me with overflowing love and grace. He measures me with hope in eternity.
I will mess up again and again but He will forgive again and again.
He gives me all I need and makes me all I am.
Lord, I thank you for loving me. I thank you for helping me see truth. I thank you for forgiving me when I stumble. I ask you to help me be brave. I want to speak your truth to those who waver. I pray that you will protect those I love and walk with them closely. Amen!
