Abide in Me?

Every year that I go to camp, God is like "Hey! Here's what you did good, and here's where I can grow you" and I'm like ::sigh:: yea....I me...

and He always does, which is why I love Him so much...doesn't matter how much I fall, He always catches me

"Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."

Abide in me? Abide in me. Abide in ME...Abide in God so that God can abide in me. How can I abide in God if so much of me is not righteous. God calls us to be holy as He is holy. This seems hard. Like....real hard. How can I be holy as God is holy? Well, it's nothing I can do, it's what God can do. This whole change can really hurt sometimes, to be honest.

Hey God, help me abide in you so you can abide in me. I'm a mess, but you're in the business of mending and fixing. Make your word evident in my life...

On a side note, my mom made her AMAZING oatmeal raisin cookies. I'm in baked good heaven..and I've broken out the "I'm eating something good" dance
