Trying To Do What's Right

I have a confession - I am frustrated with trying to do what's right.

I'll keep this brief, but I recently screwed up in a big way, and am having to pay the consequences of my sins. In doing so, I have asked the parties involved to please work with me, to see that I am trying to do the right thing, and give me a chance to make things right. They just won't. All I get is their rudeness, which, in their unregenerate minds, they have a right to spew on me.

I just want to make things better, atone for my mistakes, for once, do the right thing. But I am frustrated, because I can't do all that they want me to. I literally, physically, just can't. And that's not good enough for them.

I am trying. I am trying hard. But I keep getting shot down. Why, Lord, are you allowing that to happen? What am I supposed to learn from this? From this lesson in good intentions and frustration. Where are you working in this situation?

Please show me. Please let me know

I'm only 13 hours ahead now. Do you want to talk on your Monday night? I can call as early in the evening as you wish I can talk into your early morning hours. Let me know if you'll be at hope and I'll try you then!
