I’m a Mess

 

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.
