I find myself constantly “trying”

July 12, 2019 by Jennie Sottovia

I find myself constantly “trying” to be better, more Christ-like, more righteous. Trying to fix my behaviors and fight my nature. And the thing that always humbles me about the bible is how the more I spend time in the word, the less I find myself needing to fight my nature and the more God simply transforms it through his Spirit. I so often slip into feeling like I have to do everything on my own strength or persevere on my own, and God simply sends me his word to remind me that I’m never alone.
