In this tough life we live we have to be able to find refuge and solace in God and his plans for us. Though at times we may feel like we can do it all by ourselves, the simple truth is, we cant. There is only one way to get through our lives and being able to reach our full potential requires that we trust in God when times are good and when times are bad.
Many in society have placed such a stigma on being as Christ-like as possible, that many try to do so, and when they arent able to live perfectly, they turn away because they feel too unholy to further establish a continual relationship with God. Instead of worrying about the things in life that you do wrong, and trying to live life without sin or mistakes, realize that you must live your life through the strength of God and his strength alone. Know that no one is or ever will be perfect except for Jesus, and that the only way to achieve eternal salvation isnt by what you do on your own, but instead by what you do through God.
