I'm so flawed and so fallible. So prone to do wrong even when I try to do right. When I do manage to advance The Good, I often then immediately find myself defeated by pride. I have been so hesitant in my life to speak "as a Christian" for fear of giving the faith a bad name. I've lived to see so many others do that.
But maybe I was looking at things the wrong way?
I had an experience three years ago that was a born again type experience. The Spirit came upon me after a period where I was searching. When the Spirit called my name, I uncontrollably fell to the floor weeping because I had caught a glimpse of my soul. It made me feel exactly like a worm. I said the words out loud, "I am such a worm!". At that moment, the Spirit comforted me and put this idea in my head... if I am to be a worm, I should be a glow worm! To let my light shine and not be afraid. After all, what does a worm have to lose?
