Here’s another confession. I’m bi-polar when it comes to my spiritual life.
On the one hand I can be very self-condemning: I’m a rotten worthless sinner who can’t do anything right. I wrote a song once called Failure the lyrics to which expressed how I often feel:
I confess that I’m a failure
This sober truth, it haunts my life
Decisions made that were unwise
I’ve messed up my own, and others’ lives
Too many times...
Yes, I beat myself up a lot. And, yes, I know Jesus loves me, but I have often asked, “But does He like me?”
