Nothing Good, but in God

“...if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place." 2nd Chronicles 7

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.

Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Romans 7

Hi! I stumbled across your blog through the list of home blessings on 'biblical womanhood'. I'm a SAHM of 3 young ones born on 3 continents. I'm from Bellevue (now on furlough in OR) and we work with WBT in E.Africa. I'd love to chat sometime if you like. Blessings on your process! Kim
