Truth in the eyes of hypocrisy

I always tell people to not worry
I always say God will provide
I always preach the importance of communication
I ask others why they allow themselves to be used
I tell people to lift their eyes to the heavens, from there they will find help
I tell people to just trust, even when it seems too hard
I always say God will make a way

How easy it is for me to say these things to others....but time and time again, I fall short in all of these areas. I am a hypocrite. I am only a shadow of who I want to be.

Oh, Lord, that I would learn to heed my own advice. To walk in the way You desire. To love with no abandon. To stand up for myself and for You. To trust.
