Blog

truth is.

It's December second and I'm not sad about it. Truth is, I'm elated to be hauling out the Christmas decorations and shopping for presents.

I don't have much self control. Truth is, I ate at least ten Oreos in one sitting.

Truth is, I spend way too much time in front of the computer. But I'm working on it.

I don't look presentable everyday. Truth is, I sometimes stay in sweats and a tshirt, hair in a messy bun, and not a touch of makeup on my face all day. 

I don't get everything done that I need to. Truth is, I have a problem with forgetting things and procrastination. 

So many people have told me I'm beautiful. Truth is, I have a hard time believing it.

I get so many emails and comments from readers saying how much they love my blog and how they look up to me. Truth is, I can't believe where I am in the blogging world. It's so hard for me to believe that I'm eight followers shy of six hundred.

Truth is, I wish I knew more about HTML. I mean, I know the basics for a blog design like mine, but that's it.

I'm not always that great of a student in school. Truth is, I beginning to doubt if I'll ever understand biology and geometry.

Being a pastor's daughter isn't easy. Truth is, it's difficult. We're dealing with some major problems at our church right now and, being immediately related to the pastor, it's hard to be stuck in the middle. 

I'm not that perfect girl that everyone says I am. Truth is, I fight with my family. I'm rude to people. I don't always want to help out at church. I'm selfish. I get jealous. I'm riddled with holes caused by sin.

Truth is, I'm a worthless wretch. I'm a human being filled with sin and can't do anything good by myself. But I have a Savior. A Savior who loves me so much that He died to save me from my miserable shortcomings so that I might be His own and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness. Thanks be to God.
