This is me.

In reference to yesterday's post and to Mary's comment that says: "And we have the knowledge so why can't we put it into practice? It's right up there with working out and eating right. Why can't we just do what is GOOD for us?! "

"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. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it." Romans 7:18-20

"Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ , and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 13:14

"The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature he will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life." Galatians 6:8

More encouraging verses coming! But not right now because I have WORK to do!!
