The Condition Of My Heart
My mind comprehends, but my heart is slow to follow. I am saved by grace, and grace alone. I know that, but I don’t live like I know that. I still struggle with trying to impress God with my actions. I want to live with the freedom that can only be found in Christ and in His grace. I fail so often, and I condemn myself way too much. I want to live for Jesus. Lately I have been too concerned with others' opinions of me. I have been too focused on my past and my prior successes that I have been afraid of trying new things for fear of failure. I am too concerned with the way of my outward appearance, instead of cleaning up my heart. I need Jesus, desperately. I am a big sinner in need of a big savior – I want to stop trying to impress the world, for my worth does not come from it. I have never been loved more than I am right now by God. Lord, help my heart to accept that.
