I Need Advent Because I am a Sinner

Confession

On the outside, sometimes it can look like I have it all together. The truth is that my life would fall apart if it wasn’t for Jesus. Even if all the external and material things were the same, I would be missing part of the only part of my life that really gives me peace.

It’s easy to fool ourselves that if we pull ourselves together and work hard enough, we could fix all of own problems. After all, we are the ones that create our own mess, so it can make sense on the surface. I know I’ve fallen for this many times and let my pride hold me back in receiving help because I refused to look past myself.
