{I fail. DAILY.}

Trust me. I am human. I know that I am not perfect. I know that I fail daily. In various areas of my life...including posting a Blog post everyday this month. I know that because of my in-formalities, lack of commitment to places, situations and plans I probably disappoint people on a daily basis. Truth is. I love my family and friends but life is life and it happens not on my time or when I want it but when God has it planned. And, the biggest truth is that like most everyone else on the face of this earth. I am not perfect. ::INSERT SHOCKED FACE HERE::

John 8:7-9

New International Version (NIV)
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.

I think people tend to forget this. Trust me. I forget it all the time. Judgment is harsh. I know my shortcomings, faults and sins. I don't need a constant reminder or loss of friendship to remind me of them. Like I said. I fail daily.  I know this. The drama remains and builds and I try to evade it but again. I am not perfect. And, even tough I know that words are harsher than

Ephesians 4:29

New International Version (NIV)
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Posting this is hard for me. I admit. I am not perfect. My words don't always build up and yes, I will probably disappoint many. I regret the hurt, the distance and the pain but I remain in Jesus and I repent. And, I pray that I am forgiven. 

People can say or think what they may about me as a person, as a Momma, as a friend, and as a sinner. But, I have peace because I know when I am wrong and I am not afraid to admit it. I fail daily. I am not perfect. And, my name is Connie.

Today, I pray for peace in my heart and those hearts of people who know their shortcomings, faults and sins and can admit it not only to themselves but to God that they{we} are wrong and that we repent and want to move forward. I pray that we are forgiven and that we can find peace in who we are and how we were created.

I know I fail daily but I am willing and trying to change it.
