When I desire sin..

Why do I constantly return to my sin?
As soon as I fall into it
I say to myself
“I am never going back!”
But here I am again
In the same pit

It tastes so good at the time
So bad a few minutes after
I resolve
But is my resolve good enough?
Is my will power strong enough?

Truly, I can bring nothing good
Out of my own self.
So Heavenely Father,
I come to you who is good
Who causes us to will and to do
According to your good pleasure

Cause me to hate the bad
To love the good.
I heard
“You cannot have a new relationship with God
Without a new relationship with sin”
But my relationship with sin hasn’t changed

Mould me to desire You
All of You
All Your commands
All Your promises
All Your desires
All of You

    • I believe we will always struggle with sin until we are regenerated by Christ. But until then, Christ is molding us to be more like Him. But one thing we need to remember is that “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make a way for escape, that you may be able to bear it. I Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
      I can’t manage to phrase a simple answer yes/no. Christ died so that sin will never be an issue. But we still have a sinful nature that needs to be kept under subjection, by the grace of God.
      Praise God that sin has lost its power.
