You want to change, you know it’s the right thing to do and you struggle to do your best yet you mess up.  Can you identify with this statement?  Sure, if you are honest you will admit this is something we all deal with.  Deep down you want to do your best and do what is right; yet when you mess up you become even more frustrated and pretty soon you want to throw in the towel.

Notice the words of John, “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive  ourselves, and the truth is not in  us.  If we confess our sins, He faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  (First John 1:7-9)
Walking in the light doesn’t mean you are perfect; it means you are giving it your best to serve God and do His will.  When you put forth your best effort and fail – don’t give up !  God isn’t going to give up on you;  the blood is His Son will cleanse you from all sin.  When we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  
Be patient with yourself;  God isn’t finished with you.  Don’t give up on yourself, hang in there and continue to walk in the light.    
I remain your brother, friend and fellow servant,
Bobby L. South
