Failure is Normal

Being delivered from a sin doesn’t mean you’re never tempted again, it means you have mastered the tools God has given you to overcome the temptation. Like anything though, I’ve found that if I don’t practice using those tools (Prayer, Studying the Word, Fellowship with the Body of Christ) I get rusty at using them and have to restrain myself. Don’t give up when you give in to temptation, just get back to training with your tools!
I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 1 Corintians 15:31 NASB

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
