In Romans 7:15, the Apostle Paul says, "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate, I do". This is the story of my life, but most recently, my weekend. I was resolved. I'm not going to do it. I have no intention of doing it. I don't want to do it. I'm not even considering doing it.....You get the point. Why then, did I do it? Why couldn't I stop myself? Why did I have a momentary lapse of my senses and convictions? This is a constant battle that wages war within our souls and why, this time, could I not stand my ground and hold true to what I knew was right?
You ask, what is this thing that got a hold of me? What could have been such a temptation? If you feel brave enough to stomach what you are about to see, click here for the answer.
