Yet, God has been so gracious to me. He shows me how much He loves me by convicting me of my sins, even while I am committing them. He will not allow me to go through and continue offending Him. I SO appreciate His love toward me!
I am so glad that He lets me realize that I cannot live righteously without the strength of the Righteous One. I tried living as a Christian in my own strength, and I backslid. I am grateful that He let me learn the lesson so needed: through Him I live, not through me do I live.
"Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord/To the cross where Thou hast died/Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord/To Thy precious, bleeding side./"
