Text here, if relevant. Otherwise hide.

If we live our lives focused on the Spirit instead of the flesh, all would be well, wouldn’t it?

The tricky thing is - we are enfleshed bodies, working on feeling and channeling the Spirit of God.

Some say that this is easy - but I think it’s awfully hard.

I know God is present within me and loves me and I know the best choices to make, and yet, that fleshy part of me takes over and causes me to fall.

Luckily, we know that the God who comes to us in Spirit is constantly with us, loving us, forgiving us, and creating new life in us even as we mess up.
