Who Does God Want Us to Become

The struggle is real! We wear so many hats these days and try so hard to accomplish more that anyone could. We place impossible expectations on ourselves and consistently feel as if we have failed. We cannot imagine that God could ever be pleased with us. It is a struggle. We want to rest in the truth of His word, but this negative self-talk swirls and swirls inside of our head.
