The Journey

There are days when I’m tempted to think:
“Look how far I’ve come!”
But then I stop myself because I realize, man, I’m more of a mess now than I was two years ago – I need Jesus now more than I ever did!
And not because I’m ‘sinning’ more (though I very well might be… I don’t exactly have a measuring stick for this). No, we’ve been conditioned to think that change is simply the act of crossing off sins. I don’t do this or that anymore, so I’m good… NOT.
We’ve come to believe that God’s primary focus is to get us to stop sinning.
