If Only I Was A Better Christian…

In this brief post, I attempt to begin to address what I perceive as my shortcomings as a Christian.

As a Christian I feel like a failure: I don’t have ‘enough faith’; I ‘don’t do enough for God’ ; I ‘don’t spend enough time with Him’ ; I ‘don’t sacrifice enough’… the list goes on.

Where do these feelings come from? And from God’s perspective, are they valid observations?

I know in my heart, thanks to the influence of the Holy Spirit, that the Lord God exists. I know that He loves me. I know that His Son, Jesus, died for me.

And yet I constantly don’t think that God is pleased with me.

Where do these feelings of inadequacy come from? And why do I not live up to the image that I have of what a Christian should be like?

I am conflicted and I don’t know why.

I wish that I knew the truth.

And I wonder if I’m alone.

Please help me. Leave your comments below and tell me what you think.


Thank you.
