For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust”. Psalm 103: 14 (AMPC)
At times in life, we may think that we have failed, fallen short of what others expected of us, or what we expected of ourselves. It is a terrible feeling to think we are a disappointment to some or have let others down. Yet here is our loving God letting us know, right from the start, that we can never disappoint Him! He knows what we are like, inside and out. He knows our struggles and our strengths; our weaknesses and our worries; and He loves us still.
He understands that we are doing the best we can, and that we cannot do any good thing without Him—He has no expectation at all that we will! Rather He says, “Come to Me…let Me help you with that. You won’t be able to do it on your own, but I am right here. Together, we can do something great.”
Oh, beloved one, never worry about letting Him down, it is simply not possible. Rather He is the One Who has come to pick you up and carry you on the wings of love into the glorious future He has planned!
Trust and try Him for it is all so very true! You are not a disappointment to God. He only has grace, love, and acceptance, in His heart for you.
I thank You dearest Lord that You know me so well. You know my strengths and my weaknesses. The times I have tried and the times that I have failed, and You love me still.
Even when I don’t love myself, Your redeeming love never fails.
Help me to see myself today as You see me. Help me to see all of the situations and circumstances in my life the way that You see them, so in seeing, I can agree—for all You have planned and desire Lord, let it be!
In Christ’s Holy Name, I pray.
