Is it really about you?

Is confessing our sins not another way to glorify God? It takes courage and humility to confess, and does that come from you or God? Then the process of correcting/changing our behaviour, is that us or God?

Is it really failure?

Sometimes when we feel God doesn’t answer our prayers, He does. Sometimes we need to keep praying so we can get clarity on what we really desire. Sometimes we wait a little longer than we would like so that when we are answered, we glorify Him even more.

God is always listening.

There have been times when I feel like God isn’t listening to me.  Like there is too much noise in this world for Him to hear me. I pray and pray but to, what feels like, no avail. I get frustrated, angry, despondent, and lose focus.  I start grabbing at straws. Then I get more …
