Where I fail...

Yesterday, our lesson in Kids Stuff was about how Faithful God is. I had to explain to the girls in my group what that meant was that God never let's us down and is always dependable. I fail to believe this very often. And am in a season of struggling to hang on to that truth. It is a simple truth, but one so desperately hard to stay the course in knowing.

This morning, I decided I needed to start looking at God to show me what He says about me, so I won't fall into places where I cannot see myself as God does. Also a very easy place to fail. I found these words that really are more for me, but maybe you need to read them too.

Thank You, Jesus for always having a positive answer for all of my failing & faltering thoughts. I'm thankful for this. 
And grace.
