I Can Glorify God in My Failures

I

Today, I failed. I had a job to do, and I completely forgot about it and let someone down. Last week, I failed. I had goals to meet, and I missed them. Last semester, I failed.

But that’s just it, isn’t it...

Most of these areas will sound familiar to you. I don’t claim to be unique in my apathy. Procrastinating. Overeating. Pornography. YouTube videos. TV shows. Books. My thought life. Recognize any of these? Well, for the...
