We can all feel like failures from time to time when we think of our mistakes.  We may be harsh on ourselves.  However, if we have in our heart a true sincere desire to please God, even that desire itself pleases God.  Never forget that you are Abba’s treasured child and are encompassed with his love.  The cross is the eternal testimony of God’s love for sinners.  The cross is how much God loves you.  Rest in that love.
