Been trying to tell people this when they tell me the risks I take have a high chance of heartbreak. I say I'll enjoy this innocent love and if it falls to pieces I'll cry but a good while later I'll learn.
I’m sure I’m not the only one reading these Scriptures today whose good intentions become muddled in the presence of daily stresses, desires and demands. The determination to exhibit self-control can deteriorate quickly in the reality of the day, leading us down a path of guilt and discouragement, fear and shame. But does biblical self-control simply mean the ability to do what I’m determined to do, and avoid what I’m determined not to do? Is it just about trying harder? #srt
