Questioning Life.

Do you ever find yourself asking: Why have I made so many mistakes in my life? Why must I seem to always learn the hard way? Why has my life not turned out the way I envisioned? Why have I experienced so much disappointment and pain? Why do I sometimes feel so different from everyone else? It just doesn’t seem like other Christians struggle with the things that I do. Why have I become so cynical regarding life? What has happened to the joy that I once experienced as a Christian? I think sometimes that I really don’t matter to God very much. I will affirm that He loves the world and that He is a loving God. However, Iam convinced that I am somehow disqualified to fully receive His love. I may say that He loves the world but I think that I may have messed up too much for God forgives. Sure God forgives, but I feel like such a failure as a parent. I can believe the way my son turned out. Sure God forgives, but I know that I have disappointed God. Do I believe God really will give me a fresh start? I know the Biblical writers often remind us that they too had received fresh starts (Read again Eph. 2:1-9 and I Cor. 6:9-11).I know that His care for me is greater than my failure. I also know that Jesus work on the cross and His resurrection has given me hope for a new start. (Rom. 5:6-8) It is not too late to have a fresh start. No matter what! Thanks Lisa over at BlackWomenBlowTheTrumpet. for helping me see this.
