I’m Only Human

I’ve been soaking in a hot tub for several hours. Just hoping to drown out the pain that runs deep throughout my body. Recent days have been very productive and fulfilling. It’s also been painfully obvious just how human I’ve become. I say that as if I wasn’t human before. However, reaching this point has forced my humanity in my face.

I guess deep inside I long to be perfect. To never hurt, fear, struggle or disappoint. Adversity keeps introducing me to myself. No matter how hard I try. No matter how far I come. My humanity keeps showing itself greatly this side of heaven.

I’m having to embrace God’s grace. I’m having to get over my pride. I’m having to accept that life is full of ups and downs. I’m having to confess my humanity often because my limits are many. Jesus is the only real superhero. I’m simply clay in the potter’s hands. Daily I’m just asking God to take this human mess and help me live a life that is blessed.

“For we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well.” (James 3:2)

“But Peter pulled him up and said, “Stand up! I’m a human being just like you!”  (Acts 10:26)
