One familiar trap I find myself in is the belief that I must try harder to please God. After my worst moments, a vision of God flashes through my head. He is standing, arms crossed, face stern, and head shaking when He finds out the bad choices I made. And I believe the lie that I am stuck in the mess of my sin. Alone. Without hope. Forever marked with the burden of failure. So, I throw my pity party, pick myself off the floor, and pile out of bed the next day determined to try harder. I declare, “I will get it right today.”
Only I don’t. Again and again and again I fail. This try-harder life is exhausting.
