Today has felt like a roller coaster. I'm finding that my mind has a funny way to run around in circles. I feel as though I can be in one state of mind for a second and then a thought or song or phrase will come to my mind that causes me to sink back into a mindset of defeat. I find myself in a constant place of realizing my need to find a sense of satisfaction in something outside of myself. This year has been a year of lots of different emotions and states of mind. The one thing that has remained constant in the midst of my mess is the fact that God is good. I have questioned that on several different accounts throughout the year, but I find myself coming back to the one thing I know to be true: I am worthless outside of the cross. This statement is funny because my life doesn't reflect that truth in my thoughts and actions. So many times I look to different functional saviors and I always find myself coming back to a place of dissatisfaction and loss. As I'm writing this, the Spirit has been impressing this verse on my heart:

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" 2 Corinthians 12:9

I don't have life put together, and I never need to because Christ put it together for me at the cross.
