How long will I struggle with the wickedness of my own heart? How many times will I lay awake at night disgusted with the cravings of my own heart? At what point will I be able to make the scripture true in my life when it says, “resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
I would like to believe that my heart is becoming more like that of my savior because my actions are less reprehensible than they used to be, but that same savior also said the He looks at a man’s heart instead of his outward appearance. I want to quench this despicable fire at it’s source. I want to know that He is the root of all that I want and hope for.
Lord make my desires your desires, entreat my heart to love you only, and deliver me from all unrighteousness!

  1. You have no idea how much I have been thinking and feeling the same thing lately. I always think of Paul and how he talks of the things he wants to do he doesn't and the things he doesn't want to do he does. I don't think we'll ever know the answer til He calls us home. Hopefully at that point we can join with Paul and say we fought the good fight.

    Prayin for ya bro!
