Looking in the mirror, I see a person who wants everything to be perfect. Who wants to be right. Who knows that suffering brings perseverance, but desires to live comfortably.

I trust in the Lord but have a tendency to let the waves of life toss me around as if I had no solid foundation.

I write about going by faith in marriage, and two days later hit challenges that leave me questioning that faith.

Some people in my life deserve an apology — there are situations the Lord has opened my eyes to. But I haven’t made a move. I’ve lingered. Wavered.

The things I want to do, I don’t do. Instead — and often without realizing — I do the things I hate.

So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.
— Romans 7:21-25
