My Confession

I'm Robin. I'm utterly discontent.
How I got there, why I left there, why I went back, is the story of my life.
But it's not the whole story.

I'm Robin. I'm a failure.
How I got there, why I left there, why I went back, is also the story of my life.
But it's not the whole story.

I'm Robin.
I was discontent in life, but I am no longer discontent.
I was a failure in love, but I am no longer a failure.

How I got to those places, why I left those places, is the story of my life, too.
But it's not the whole story.

I'm Robin. I'm a sinner, saved by grace.
That is the larger and more important story.
