The Struggle

I struggle daily.

I’m not perfect.

Honestly, I’m glad I’m not.

My struggles make me depend on God.

I struggle with food (big surprise there…I’ve talked in detail about that before).  I struggle making good choices, I struggle with being lazy, and I struggle with taking care of this body I’ve been gifted.

I struggle with selfish thoughts.

I struggle with loving others (especially a few others that get on my nerves).

I struggle with thinking too highly of myself.

I struggle daily.

I say all of this to say, I know that I have a great life.  I know that I showcase that here in my corner of the Internet.  But I want you to know one thing about me: I’m the biggest of sinners.  I’m the worst offender.  I’m NOTHING without the love and grace of Christ.

I also want you to know that if you feel the same way, that you’re too far gone, you’re hopeless, you’re a terrible human being…you’re not.  There is hope in God.

He can forgive and redeem and make new.

I still struggle, but I know who to turn to when I struggle and I know the most important thing: I’m a God girl who is created to be more than a conqueror.  With His help, I can find victory and freedom.  All I want in life is what God wants for me.  I’m hoping I can align myself with Him and walk in that way.

I may struggle, but I have God there carrying me through it. And for that, I’m SO glad.

I’m also glad you’re here following along on my sometimes crazy, sometimes boring, sometimes fashionable, sometimes kooky little life. 🙂



  1. Kooky attracts kooky girlfran, so you’re stuck with me for the long haul. 😉

    And, me and Jesus love ya just the way you are! You’re a pretty perfect friend. <3

  2. I felt like I was reading my own post when I read this. I struggle, too, girl–especially with food! It’s so crazy how something like that can become an Idol in my life. I’m so thankful that the Lord gives us grace, and that he gave us His word to turn to for encouragement and hope int hose times where we feel like we’re just completely failing at this life. I’m so thankful for you 🙂
