The Endless Cycle of Constant Failure

I keep failing
Yet you forgive me
Over and over again

I keep straying
Yet you look after me
Everyday

I forget about you
Yet you never forget me
Never

I try to do it on my own
Yet you still look after me
No matter what I do

I try to hide my shame
Yet you show me it
And you forgive me right away

I constantly apologize
Yet you always welcome me back
With open arms

I say: “It won’t happen again.”
Yet you know it will
And you’ve already forgiven me

I’m tired of this constant failure
Yet you never tire
Of loving me

I want to leave
Yet you tell me to stay
With you

I want to give up
Yet you still believe in me
Enough to make me try again and again

I try to earn my way
Yet I’m learning
You don’t work that way

I fail many times
Yet you’re always there to catch me
And forgive and love me

I think I’ve failed too many times
Yet you reassure me that I haven’t failed enough
And that I never will

But, why?
Why are you so good to me?


Here’s the answer I’ve found to that question (it’s also what inspired this post):

Thanks for reading!
I hope this post sparks you to think about the bigger picture.
I promise adventure posts are coming! I’m just in a thinking frame of mind lately before I start my next adventure!

  1. We’re not completely fixed yet. But one day God will complete the work & there will be no more failures.
