Galatians 3:1

You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? (NIV)

Yet all reasons for not drinking were easily pushed aside in favor of the foolish idea that he could take whiskey if only he mixed it with milk! (Alcoholics Anonymous 36-37)

Knowing better,
having experienced the glory
of doing it well,
of living recovery,
of achieving alignment
of my life with His...
Despite years of study,
repeated recommittals,
leadership roles,
extensive service...
Cognizant it's counterintuitive,
embarrassed to fall short,
to miss the mark,
to have settled for less...
God, I know I'm foolish,
that I'm a failure.
No, not a failure.
I'm yours, you made me,
and you don't make failures.
But I know better.
Help me to choose better.

God, I know I'm foolish.
Let me turn loose,
and be the success you choose
to make me.
