does this

24 Oct
ever happen to you?
I had one of the best times with the Lord on Friday morning.
And then, by Friday afternoon I felt like the biggest heathen ever.
Giving in to temptation,
snapping at the kids,
being lazy,
whining,
the list goes on and on!
I find myself exclaiming with the Apostle Paul.
“Wretched person that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?”
 (Romans 7:24)
How can I be walking in the presence of the Lord one moment
and then totally not walking in it the next?
The answer:
my choices.
In 10 minutes
I can make enough wrong choices
 to take me from
life
to
death.
But…
here is my comfort.
He picks me up,
brushes me off,
lifts my face,
and speaks tenderly to my heart.
 
“I love you.
Let me help you up
and together we can continue on.”
  
O, what a wonderful Savior!
