Succeeding At Failure

I think the Apostle Paul could have written this blog.

If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. ~2 Corinthians 11:30

Of course, as I think about it, Paul would be writing a more successful version, which would cause the brain to hurt, because he'd be successful at not being awesome. He would write out of his weaknesses, which he did with great strength, since he allowed God to shine clearly through him.

This is opposed to me writing in my failed attempts to get over myself, as I continue to try painting myself in the least embarrassing light possible. So while I fail at failure, Paul succeeds at failure. Is your head spinning yet?

Suffice it to say that I will continue to write, though imperfectly, as I continue to journey on towards insignificance, while Paul revealed to all of us the secret of finding it.
