Every one of us is a mess, and if we don't keep our eyes on the Lord and our mind on His Word, we're doomed to defeat, doubt, disillusionment and final failure! When Peter walked on the water, as soon as he started looking at himself, he started to sink! (Mat.14:28-31) It was no use! You have to keep your eyes on Jesus! He's the only One that can keep you from falling! Hold onto His hand and don't look at the waves!
God knows you're anything but perfect, and can't be perfect and never will be perfect, and usually you're pretty much of a mess, like the rest of us. So the only question, the only standard is: Do you depend on the Lord totally, trust Him and His grace and His Love and His mercy, and give Him all the glory and all the credit? If there's anything good you ever do, do you give Him the glory? Do you say, "Thank Jesus, don't thank me! Thank the Lord, it's all the Lord!"?
Help us to keep our eyes on You, Jesus. Help us to keep our minds and our hearts and our faith stayed on You, in Jesus' name we ask for Thy glory. You're the One Who really does it all and we're nothing, we just have to depend on You, Jesus.--And we do, Lord, we do.
