Slay the Dragon

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. Romans 7:18
You would think after all the junk and damage my behavior has caused that I would have figured it out by now? I suppose with the pain total and lives broken from my sin that by now I’d say enough is enough? 
Speaking for myself, now that challenges and sin patterns that are getting eradicated by God’s Grace alone are not the heroin, cocaine, daily marijuana use, or abuse of people, but it’s the sobriety sins, the wasting of time, the poor word choice, the ignoring of a need. For I have the desire to do what is right but not the ability to carry it out. 
Enter dependence. Enter Surrender. Enter Grace, conviction, redemption, & restoration. For yes, my flesh has chosen things that were deadly, my choices have been poor … but today I am living in His flesh! Today you have His body! Now we hold His Spirit and have the mind of Christ! It is a new day! It is time to drop the old shame and guilt and pick up a sword and fight our flesh desires. Slay the damn sin and change.
