I Am Flawed

I am flawed. I struggle with the weakness of my flesh. As I recently shared in my blog post, “Nobody, Somebody,” I can be stubborn and impatient. I have been on occasion reckless. I have been married four times and have children with three different men to whom I was never married. So why am I sharing this with all of you when I know that I will be looked upon negatively and judged harshly? Because…

1.) My flaws and errors are an occasion to help others by my giving testimony. When I share my weaknesses openly my sin then becomes an example to display God’s perfect patience with me. I am encouraged by his forgiveness in me and I want to share that with you so that you too might know the gift of his grace. 1 Timothy 1:16 “I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.”

2.) I was designed for and have lived for this very purpose. Romans 9:15-18 “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

I am flawed. I struggle with the weakness of my flesh. Why do I struggle? Because…

I am flawed.

Until next time, Live Authentic. Live Intentional. Pursue your dream. Live with purpose.
