As I sit here in front of the computer, I’m wondering what I should write? I know what I should, but it is always difficult to confess our weakness/s. I took a moment to read yesterday’s entry and knew I was to follow it up with what I write today. The past several weeks and months I’ve been tested like I’ve never been for many years. Some days I couldn’t surrender it fast enough in order for the same temptation to hit again. I’d find myself just wanting to run, cover my ears to stop the voices, etc. Yet, God is faithfully present and all of this has lessened a great deal. This morning as I journaled about this, God reminded me of what I wrote yesterday regarding a sponsor. Then James 5:16 comes to mind: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
God is reminding me that swallowing my pride and admitting all of this weakness in my flesh is the right thing to do. I know this so well, yet I struggle to practice it on my own. I suppose we all have this to some degree. A new creation works to lessen the amount of time between struggle and confession. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m still of the flesh!
