My faith is not a marketing tool for my business.
I am fallible, I falter. It is not what I believe that makes me a good person.
It is because of my faith that I know that I am not.
Good actions will not save me, good deeds will not make me a better person.
I believe in one who loves me and sacrificed for me, not because I am good, but because I am not.
It was said to me the other day, “It is not what you believe that makes you a good person it is what you do that does”… another lie.
I know depression, I know pain, I have tried to dig myself out of the pits of despair of self-loathing of self-hate.
Becoming self-aware is not learning just your strengths but saying I am weak and need help.
Falling into the traps of self-doubt have slowed me on my journey…
falling into the traps of self-ridicule have taken me out of the game.
If he is Man enough to love me at my worst, who am I to say He is wrong.
His arms will lift me, his legs will carry me on.
I trust in God what can Man or even myself do to me?
It is for this reason that I know my actions do not make me good.
What the world calls good changes, but HE is constant.
He never changes.
What HE has done is good.
What does this produce out of me?
Servant attitude and mindset.
Let me serve,
let me help,
not because I need to show that I am good but to show that the one I serve is.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
