Psalm 78:38-39 are very special verses to me. As a recovering perfectionist, I usually can beat myself up 150% times better than my own worst enemy when I fail.
Sometimes I wonder why God doesn’t turn me into His own personal punching bag, too. I’ve definitely given Him enough reasons to do it.
What is the difference between a wimp and a warrior? It’s not their circumstances. It’s not their education. It’s not their financial status.
It’s simple, really. One has the courage to remain faithful, no matter the cost . . . and the other does not.
