This is how I try to live my life. Trying to live as a new Christian in a secular world is a lot of work. It is really easy to fall back into my old ways of doing things, as in 'I don't need anyone's help, I can do it on my own'!
Ummm, actually, I can't. My independent nature tries to override the Holy Spirit, and most of the time I either fail miserably, or get frustrated and give up on whatever it is I am trying to accomplish. And then these words echo in my head..."So, how'd that work out for you?" Ouch!
Back to the drawing board, only this time with Him at my side. And I take it day by day.
