Dear 90’s Baby-#2

Dear 90’s Baby,

All of us have pride. We do not like to confess that we are wrong or that we have failed, but we have all failed at some point.
We do not always have it together; we know what to do, but do not always do it. 😩  Most of the time, we have not even lived up to our own standards *clears throat* or is this just me?


The first step to happiness, peace and contentment is to acknowledge where we are weak, how we are flawed and when we do fail. Talking about standards, we fall short of God’s standards and He never gets tired of forgiving us. His mercy is so lavishly abundant that we do not have any excuse (*or reason*) to not have mercy on ourselves or compassion on other people.

The next step is to open our hearts to receive forgiveness, to accept that somebody,  somewhere loves you and that it is true. God never gets tired of forgiving us. The problem is that we often get tired too soon.
God knows that you are only just learning to walk and that comes with a lot of ‘fallings’ but here you are scared, worried, upset and embarrassed because you think God would only be impressed if you were running already. Listen, He knows you, loves you and He’s patient with your growth process. He will not get tired of forgiving; you, just don’t get tired of going back to Him.

One more thing! When we do fail, it is not enough to silently affirm that something wasn’t right, be strong enough to say ‘I’m sorry, I made a mistake’ to anyone affected; be wise enough to learn from your mistake so that history doesn’t repeat itself; be humble enough to share with others that you are not perfect and how that you are learning and growing.
Whatever happens, remember we all make mistakes and you are not alone in your imperfections.
