We are our own harshest critic. The tirade of age has come to me as well, with similar and different accusations. Some might be true, but many are lies and accusations not designed to help us, but to kill our spirit and drag us down. Will we ever succeed? I have no idea. Our definition of success and the Lord's definition can be two completely different things.
I hit the thirty mile mark more than a decade ago. Heh, that was when I joined the National Guard, something I enjoyed for a season, I don't believe that it was my calling. That has passed, with the seasons. My current job might be a passing season, I don't know. Time goes on, all we can do is just the best we can...
(If this doesn't seem to make much sense, I only woke 30 minutes ago! =^^; )
