When We Come Face to Face with Ourselves

It is difficult to see clearly through the fog

On those days when we are face to face with our own failures – when we feel weak and defeated – we can take heart and reflect on these words from Friday’s reading is from 1 Corinthians 15:

“By the grace of God I am what I am; God’s grace to me has not been ineffective.”

These are the words of a man, the apostle Paul, who saw his failing and who had to reconcile with his intolerant and murderous past. These are the words of a man who saw God working through his weaknesses.  So we, like him, need to be patient; it is not always clear to us what God is about.

May each of us also be able to look beyond our failures and near-misses, and see God at work.
