God put Jesus in control. My status is up to Jesus.
My status is, however, not based on how much I try. It is entirely up to God.
Of course I miss God’s goal for my life (i.e. sin) but is that how Jesus sees me. Surely not based on the gift he has given me.
I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.” ~~Nelson Mandela
