I am weak

Sliding backwards

I am so weak! I often fall back into my old ways, or let a good habit die out. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever be able to make the good things I’m learning and the good habits I’m creating so much a part of me that they are me – so they are what I turn to first when something upsetting happens or something changes in my life.

But then I remember that we live in a mortal world. Everything worth doing is hard and takes work and is an uphill climb. Good habits are always hard to keep and easy to fall out of. It is so easy to start a bad habit and so hard to stop a bad habit. It is just part of this mortal world. But, then how can we ever change and grow?

How can we let go of our weaknesses and learn to be happy and find joy? I am so thankful for the enabling power of the atonement of Jesus Christ! He can take a weak and broken person like me and make me stronger than I can be on my own. He can help me change and grow and find joy and happiness. I am so weak on my own, but with Jesus Christ I can do all things.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (New Testament Philippians 4:13)
