No pressure... Yeah, right.
I am a Christian. Everyone knows that. And that's the problem.
Okay, let me backtrack here. It is not a problem; it is a responsibility. A responsibility that sometimes (okay, make that most of the time - no, all the time) feels like too much for me to carry.
Why? Because I feel this pressure to be on all the time.
To say the appropriate thing, to do the appropriate thing, to reflect Jesus in every and all ways.
And, it is a lot.
Sometimes it's like, "Lord, I am just a young adult going through life and the many suck-y changes that have to do with adulthood."
But I try to remember (with a lot of help from the Holy Spirit - seriously, like a lot of it) that it is my heart, rather than my actions, that endear me to the Lord.
Abraham and David were flawed humans who made mistakes. What made them beloveds of the Lord was that they were flawed humans who loved the Lord.
Loves the Lord trumps made mistakes every day, any day.
And I’m cool with that. For the more I love the Lord, the less easy it becomes to make mistakes, and the more effortless it becomes to be on.
