Inadequate. I am a sinner. Every moment is a battle of anxiety and fear of failure. Who am I to be anything? To teach or to to succeed in this life? Who am I to be wise or lovely in light of all of my sins; but that He is good and perfection through me. I cannot be better on my own, no matter how hard I struggle and try, but when I am weak, Christ is strong. This past weekend, someone told me something beautiful: “Jesus didn’t die for you to be better. He died for you to be His.” Praise the Lord that even through this anxiety and fear, I am His. No matter how I fail or fall, I belong to Christ Jesus, and in those words is life and hope.

“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
– Erin Hanson
