At Mass



One line from the second reading at Mass this week struck me deeply:

"...for when I am weak, then I am strong."

Where and what am I?  Do I have what it takes to be a good, moral, strong person?  Do I have what it takes to quit pipe tobacco?  Do I have what it takes to be kind, gentle, and forgiving?  Do I have what it takes to help others?  Do I have any worth, any value?

Sh*t!  I feel like such a failure in all aspects of life.  I feel sometimes that I am worthless and wretched.  It is enough to make me..... I don't know..... it just makes me frustrated and makes me lose hope.  I see how I should be and what I should do.... and then I see how I am and what I do.... and I am so disappointed.
