Woe …. sniff sniff :( is me!

Surely this is an honest admission.  What Christian has not sincerely grieved over her own spiritual shortcomings:  over ‘doing those things I ought not to have done and leaving undone those things I ought to have done’ 
(to paraphrase the Book of Common Prayer).

No follower of  Christ was ever more acutely conscious of this very trait and tendency than the apostle Paul.  We might take comfort from this thought.  But to allow ourselves to be trapped in Satan’s snare, wallowing in despair, is to deny the liberating grace of God.
Let us then not linger in this valley of spiritual desolation. 

Romans: 7 v 24
What a wretched person I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
The reply, ringing with triumphant deliverance and assurance, echoes to our very ears.  

V25: Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So…..  remember this:

Romans: 8 v 1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

  1. Something I have found is when I examine and deal with my shortcomings first, everyone else's seem to have a lesser effect on me…
