I’m Only Human Born to Make Mistakes

We all have struggles, we all have worries, we all make mistakes. Yet our attitude defines our gratitude. How we react will vary from one person to the next. It reminds me of a song, “I’m only human, of flesh and blood I’m made.”

I can forgive myself for the mistakes I’ve made because I know deep in my heart that the creator of this universe has forgiven me too. Yes, I make mistakes. I feel regrets. But I know it’s a part of my character. I’m a work in progress. I may not have all the answers and I can be happy with that. I might not get my way but I can be confident that it will all work out in the end.

I’ve made it a regular habit to be grateful in spite of whatever is happening in my life. It does not come easy and often times, I forget how very blessed I am. When I’m caught up in the moment, when I get frustrated over things I cannot control, I forget.

footprints in the sandLife is a string of moments. A passing of seasons carry me from one chapter of my life to the next. As I walk through this valley and as I climbed these difficult mountains, I know my God is with me. When I feel inadequate, I look for the footprints in the sand. I know when I see just one set, then I know He was carrying me.

Yes, I’m only human. I will never be anything more but I have the quiet confidence in my heart that says everything is right where it’s supposed to be. I am right where I’m supposed to be. It is all part of the bigger plan. My life is made with a purpose.

My struggles are not unlike yours. My choices may even be similar to yours. We walk the same journey. We ride the same tides. We are human; wonderfully and completely molded by the Heavenly Maker.

Whom shall we fear? Why should we give up? We don’t have to. All we need is enough faith to get through each day. Why not praise God for this moment, for our human possibilities and for His remarkable grace.
