Dennis,

Thank you for taking time to read my post and for the encouraging feedback that you shared. I can identify with "knowing what is right, and desiring to do what is good and pure and acceptable" yet finding "I do not have the power to carry it out".  Every time we fall, we must cling even more so to the cross, knowing that "perseverance produces character and character hope."

Remember, Jesus said "those who are well have no need of a physician." May you continue to hold fast to the hope you have in Christ, and "lean not upon your own understanding." I have no doubt that he will "make our paths straight" not because we ourselves do what is right and avoid what is wrong, but rather because of what Christ has already done.

God knows the condition of our heart and if it is one of great repentance and faith in His Son, He will slowly but surely, help us to not get "entangled in civilian pursuits" or fall away because of "the cares of this world" but will "lift us up on wings like eagles" and give us "victory over our enemies."

Blessings in Christ my beloved brother,


Anthony Polenski
