Lately a few people have echoed my feelings that they are just feeling so weighed down, unworthy etc. It has been a rough time for me, as I feel I have lived better and done far more of the things I should than I have for the last 25 years (since my mission). I have spent the last couple of years really trying to get on track with the Lord's program for me, and yet although there have been days where the light has shown thru and been wonderful, I often feel more and more that I am failing, that I am not doing enough, unprofitable servant, etc. And I have seen several others post similar sentiments.
This morning I came across this by C.S. Lewis that made a lot of sense. Hope it helps others as it helped me.
Remember that, as I said, the right direction leads not only to peace but to knowledge. When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad man knows he is not very good; a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either. -C.S. Lewis
