v. 15 "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."
v. 18 & 19 "And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can't. I want to do what is good, but I don't. I don't want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway."
v. 25 "Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God's law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin."
8:2 "And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death."
How perfect is that? Also, the Chronicles part of my reading had me claiming:
"He is good! His faithful love endures forever!" 2 Chron. 7:3b
God just met me where I needed to be met to do what I need to do! Here are some pictures from yesterday. The girls are beautiful and "The Mill" is the dining hall where Nick LIVES.
