Paul said, “I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.”
Guilty! Why do refuse the hand of Christ when we’re in the midst of darkness? Our hearts cry out for Jesus but our minds tell us no.
We know right from wrong. We know truth from lies. Yet we choose darkness.
Because we’re in a battle.
I don’t know about you, but I struggle with receiving forgiveness from God. I tend to think I have to punish myself before I can truly be forgiven.
I allow shame and guilt and condemnation to spend way too much time in my life before I truly accept His forgiveness.
I was sitting on the porch yesterday thinking, dealing with some anxiety, and wanting to turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms. I decided to write this song instead.
