I can hear him say it now….
Circumstances don’t create who you are….they REVEAL who you are.
And I must admit it. He’s right. And to be painfully honest…I don’t like what my circumstances are revealing. This dying to self is ugly business. I want to be so much more than I am. I mean well…but I fail.daily.
So each day I try again and each day I fail again but I don’t lose hope. God is faithful to remind me….even broken vessels are useful to Him.
Psalm 51:17….a broken and contrite heart oh Lord, you will not despise.
