I am so thankful for this fact. Though saved by grace, I still have my daily struggles, and every now and then something comes along that is really, really hard to resist. And instead of girding my loins, tapping into the strength of the One who created the universe, and resisting I begin to weaken and consider giving in this time. Last year was a rough one for me, I almost choice my own path instead of the Lord's concerning a deep desire of my heart. But thankfully (praise the Lord!) I took the U-turn and I'm back on the Lord's path. The feeling of peace is so reassuring. I am so thankful for His goodness.
"...the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance.." Romans 2:4
