Epic failure!

I woke up this morning feeling like a huge failure.

The chain of my thoughts went from the pain in my shoulder to having to go to the doctor to not wanting an MRI (claustrophobic, even in the open ones)  to an article I read about the inventor of the MRI.

I started to think about this man who invented the MRI.  What a wonderful contribution to society he has made.  And then to top it off this same man is contributing generously to one of my favorite ministries, Answers in Genesis and their Ark Encounter.  Valuable contribution after valuable contribution!

Then I started to think about what I have contributed to society and I got nothin’.

Or do I?

Be patient, I’m linking thoughts here.

The other day I read a post on Christians having feet of clay.   A few days after that I read an article that stated Christians don’t have just feet of clay, they are ALL clay.  That brings to mind the verse of the Holy Scriptures that says we have this treasure in jars of clay.

I have a treasure?

I offer the world the only thing of real value I have,  “Jesus lived, Jesus died, Jesus rose again….for you.”

Even if I am a failure, I have  the treasure of Jesus, and He says in Deuteronomy and 5 other scriptures,  “…the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.”

Epic failure or treasured possession?  The Bible says, “Everything apart from faith is sin.”  I think with God’s help I will live by faith today.

Jesus, I know my struggle is not against flesh and blood.  The enemy is hitting me with his fiery darts this morning.  Give me strength to take up my armor, especially the shield of faith.  I love you Lord, you are my Treasure.  Amen

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
