There's a dark place within me that can think the most hateful thoughts.
When someone crosses me it rises up in anger and spits out a response that makes it past my lips more often than I would like.
One of my favorite verses is Romans 7:19. "For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not that I do." It reminds me that the battle against a sin nature is an age old problem.
The good news is we don't have to fight this battle alone. Christ has gone ahead of us and paid the price for the sins we haven't even committed yet.
So, today I'm thankful for God's grace. A grace that has given me a second chance many times over. A grace that is greater than anything that I have done, or am capable of doing. A grace that is greater than all my sin!!
