After beginning my talk with Jesus pleading to help me not focus on the fact that I allowed myself to rest, I started with my "Grace for the Moment" book by Max Lucado. (This is usually where I start if I need a small dose of hope before delving into the depths of my soul, the problems of the world, the wonder of Christ, the promises of scripture etc.)
Today, I was encouraged... I hope you will be to:
At times Paul's heart was heavy, he drug his pen across the page. "What a miserable man I am! Who will save me from this body that brings me death?" (Romans 7: 24).
Only heaven knows how long he stared at the question before he found the courage to defy logic and write, "I thank God for saving me through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:25)
I've been reading the Enneagram and was talking with a good friend about it yesterday (yet another shameless plug for the book).
We were discussing our types and she said, "I know what I am, I just need to know how to change it now"...
Its easy to get stuck in Paul's first question... but oh how much I am thankful for the answer.
