God expects more failure from us than we do from ourselves because God knows who we are. We are not the righteous person who occasionally sins, we are the sinful person who occasionally- by God’s grace- gets it right. When we start from this perspective we are released from the bondage of perfectionism and are able to forgive ourselves once and for all. We are to take our cue from him. We may be disappointed with ourselves but God is not. We may feel like condemning ourselves, but God does not.
James Bryan Smith

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look at the stars.
