Thank You that grace is for failures,
that if flows downhill to the failures who know they are failures, so they have a healthy-indifference to their failures and successes, because Jesus is everything to them, and everything else is nothing — including any interest in critiquing/judging others.
Thank You for dragging me down this pathway of healing, and that I’m not-yet healed, because Jesus is not-yet everything to me, and everything else is not-yet nothing to me. But thank You that You don’t have me where I was five years ago, living in so-much denial of my failures, unable to look inside and see how emotionally dysfunctional I’ve always been, unable to accept/enjoy myself as being so dysfunctional, unable to enjoy others just as they are, especially jerks and enemies. Thank You for the momentary peace that is vastly superior to that experienced by an independent/confident-he-knows-what’s-best.
