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.
