I'm faulty.

I'm bossy.
I open my big mouth when I shouldn't.
I'm overly-sensitive.
I assume the worst.

I get anxiety.
I stress.
I suck at delegating.

I don't like to be told what to do.
I judge.
I quietly criticize.

Some of these are sins, and some are just things I'd like to change.

It seems that lately these things keep being brought to my attention
either by God or by people in my life.
And it stings.  
I don't want others to notice.

I can easily listen to Satan speak lies to me...
let him tell me I will never change...
keep me dwelling on the imperfections...
and get down on myself.

Or.

I can embrace the grace of Jesus.
without which I am nothing.

Kerrie Williams's Playlist 2 by Kerrie Williams on Grooveshark

Jesus, "Sweep me away, sweep me away in Your love,
Where nothing else matters.
Sweep me away, sweep me away in Your love,
Where nothing else matters.

You're grace, it covers me.
Your love, it covers me.
Oh God, you cover me!"

I need the grace of Jesus to cover me, to cover my faults.
Satan's right. I'll never measure up.
I.will.never.measure.up.
On my own.
But thanks to God I don't have to.
I'm so grateful to Jesus for measuring up for me.
His grace has the power to change.
