That desire often leads me down the path of good works – attempting to do all I can to insure that I am loved and accepted.

In recent days I have fallen far short of my own expectations – not doing the things I should do and doing those things I shouldn’t. It makes me feel so discouraged and so distant from the Lord. My own unworthiness looms larger than life, and I am left feeling so empty.
