Believers of Christ, we have to be conscious that not everything we think we are hiding from the world is actually hiding!
For this reason, we shouldn’t judge other people and try to measure how well we think they are behaving as a Christian. We cannot bring people to the light of Christ acting like we don’t have some of the same problems that non-believers struggle with….this life is not easy and trouble does hit Christians in the same way it hits nonbelievers….sin hits us all…which is the reason Christ died for us and now we have Him to forgive the believers and guide our ways; keeping us, growing, grooming, maturing us so that we can change from the habits of sin and be free in Him. Sin has no boundary….in the same way, God has no boundary…When we are willing to submit to His Will, our Will becomes subjected to His DIVINE authority in our lives!
Truth be told, Christians battle with being “addicts,” too! We are constantly in a battle to overcome the fleshly desires and take on the attributes of a sin-LESS Father & Savior.
If you really want to carry out the will of God and spread the Gospel, we have to show that we are not exempt from weakness and things that cause us to stumble. The difference is that as a Christian, we have the ability to go to Christ, in sincerity, confess our sins and He is faithful to forgive. When we do this action, God sees our hearts and our motives are directed towards the light and not the darkness. We got to be 1-hunid! We need God everyday in this life! We have the testimony that we have overcome some sin, but NOT ALL SIN, we have to be mindful that in order to help folk, we have to show them who Helps Us! We have to show that in our weakness, He has and will be our strength! We have to show that we are tempted and do still struggle with taking off fleshly desires!
My halo is half-tilted! I got some struggles that God has to deliver me from, Him and only Him. He has a time for everything, if I keep in His Word, He shows me where I fall or where I could easily fall! He also shows a way out! Don’t lie to yourself! You in the same boat. Don’t fool yourself!
God, I thank you for Your Forgiveness! At the same time, thank You for Your Grace & Mercy! Thank you for not letting me die in my sin! Thank You for Jesus Christ! Where I am weak, You are STRONG! You know my heart! My heart desires You! Help my mind to be the same! In Jesus Name, Amen.

Psalm 51:1 NLT “Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.”
Romans 12:2 WEB “Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.”
Ephesians 4:21-25 NIV “When you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”
