This is me walking in the flesh each and every day:
~ The Apostle Paul
Romans 7:14-19 "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do-this I keep on doing. "
vs. 24-25 "What a wretched woman I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God-through Jesus Christ our Lord!..."
This is me asking God with my whole heart for forgiveness:
~ King David
Psalm 51:1-3 "Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; blot out My transgressions. Wash away my ALL My iniquity and cleanse me from My Sin. For I know My transgressions and My Sin is always before me."
~ As long as I walk in this flesh of mine, I will sin. There are no if, ands or buts...but with you Lord, there is grace, mercy and forgiveness. And for that Father, I thank you.
