Failure · Faithfulness

failed… again…

Ugh…!
I said I would pray… and I didn’t…!
Signed up… on the clock… to fill a space with prayer…
and slept right through…
didn’t even think about it before hitting the pillow…

The realization makes me sick…

I failed…
failed myself…
failed others…
failed Him…

In the midst of praying forgiveness…
pouring out prayers for those I was supposed to…
asking Him whose outside time and space… to retroactively pray during the time I failed…

A verse comes to mind…

…if we are faithless, he remains faithful —
he cannot deny himself.
2 Timothy 2:13 ESV

In this moment of faithlessness… failure…
I trust His forgiveness…
I trust His ability to fill the gap…
I trust His faithfulness to those who are His…
for He knew… before… that I would… fail…

You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
Psalm 139:3-4 ESV
O Father God… You knew… You know…
yet still You are faithful…
Thank You…
