Paint By Numbers

I can will it, but I can’t DO it. (Romans 7:18b TM)

What do we do when we find ourselves in situations we know makes God angry or sad?

We have all been there—either the “child” suffering from fears or compulsions that we cannot control, OR the “adult” just shouting “STOP IT!” At least inside our heads.

Have you ever felt like that? In your adult life, do you struggle with:

  • Wanting to do something but can’t seem to make yourself
  • Finding yourself in a situation where you are out of control
  • Wishing you were “someone else?

Well, you are in good company.
