Soooo Lord? I echo the Apostle Paul today.
‘I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate, I do. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do – this I keep on doing!’ Romans 7:15,19 Ugh!
Oh God, You are so holy. As a sinner, I am so not. I need Your forgiveness, often.
Praise You for sending Jesus to die and rise again. In exchange for believing this, You deposit Your righteousness into my life and reconcile me so I can stand holy and blameless before You. Colossians 1:22 What grace!
I love how even though I feel like a (hot) mess yet again, You don’t see me that way. Help me learn to be the best version of myself, despite my flaws.
‘Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me … Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?
Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!’ Romans 7: 21,24-25
I rest in Your cleansing power.
