    I'm far from perfect.

    I've done drug, had sex out wedlock and doubted the bible. This is stuff I am willing to admit to. Yet God loves me anyway, he always has my back. He protects me day in and day out. He accepts my flaws and forgives me always, even when I don't deserve it. I am anything but a...

    Forgive me Lord, I'm not perfect.

    .... This afternoon, my preacher texted me (which I don't understand why he just didn't call), he asked if I ordered the shirts for the children's home. I replied, yes. He asked when will I be delivering them to the church... That's where I felt guilty. I wanted to say, "I'll...

    I had a good cry earlier today.

    I'm a huge mess. It seems like as I grow older, the harder it gets for me to keep my faith firm. I always utter these words when I'm having trouble deciding- "Lord if it's not your will, then let it slip out of my fingers. I trust in you." I've been facing a certain kind of...

    Being a Christian doesn't mean you're perfect.

    If you thought that then you're wrong. A Christian is like any other human. I'm Christian myself and let me tell you, I'm not even close to being perfect. I'm a mess. When I was eight years old, I was baptized and a few months later, I found out that I liked girls and found...

    I didn't know until recently

    that I could be real with God. I don't need to pretend to be miss perfect because God ready knows that I'm not. I can tell him when I'm sad, angry, confused, lonely, happy, etc. Its the greatest feeling.

    I struggle everyday with being a "real"

    Christian. I feel guilty and berate myself. I am disgusted with the lust of my flesh. I feel I am selfish and often times what I want is incongruous with the Will if the Father. I am weak and I am sorry.

    I don't know any Christians

    who are anything like 'perfect', nor any who would claim to be, it's a bit of an odd phrase altogether. I know some Christians who could be described as 'holy' or 'godly' or 'good' or 'spiritual' perhaps.
