Why do we expect so much out of ourselves and the people around us?
Is there such a thing as impossible limits?

I'm not so sure, because we have an Advocate and a Couselor and have been given the tools to do our best, so why is it wrong to expect the best results?

Most of all, why do we feel like such a failure when we don't achieve the results we had intented?

Not sure I really have the answers to those questions, but those are the questions I have this morning. I really try to do the best that I can do, but still find that I come up short on many occasions. When my children act out, I feel like a failure as a mother. When things get hectic and impossible at work, I feel like a failure as an employee. When things don't happen with my book, I feel like a failure as a writer. When I see those dreams slip away one by one, I feel like a failure to God.

Thank goodness my faith isn't based on feeling or else I'd be in a lot of trouble.

Till next time,
