Impossible goals

Oh, that my actions would consistently
reflect your decrees!
 Then I will not be ashamed
when I compare my life with your commands.  Ps. 119:5-6

“Oh that” are the operative words here. “Consistently” is all we can shoot for because “always” is not going to happen no matter how hard we try. Consistently is a stretch. Good thing we have grace.

Lord, I can’t do it, consistently or otherwise; only You can cover my shame and failure.
