I find myself stumbling more and more every day when I walk apart from Him. It is as though I have become quite unable to handle the stress of life on my own, and my dependancy on Him has grown greatly in these last few weeks. Apart from Him, I see the ugliness of my flesh come out of me and it makes me sick.
   I have become much more compassionate as I have seen the weakness that lives in me, and I begin to understand paul’s cry at the end of Romans 7: “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
   I will continue to depend on Him through and through… He is my only hope indeed! “As the branch cannot bear fruit unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you inless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I n him, he bears much fruit, fo apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
   Yes, Jesus, apart from You I can do nothing. But with You, nothing is impossible, and I believe in You!
