You must think something nice about yourself right? What good will it do to turn against yourself. Already I see great potential in you, but it doesn't matter if I said that a million times.

You have to see that in yourself.
if any thing is good about me

its of the holy spirit

but i have seen works in me
and it makes me sooo happy to know

that Jesus can love even someone like me

Oh you're here, nice.

So nothing is good in you but by Jesus? How does that work.

lol

i saw the fruits of myself most my life

i was a picture of an evil violent selfish lustful liar

who puffed his chest out and had no problems taking from those with less than me to feed my ego and spoke nothing but vile words


i see the fruits of the holy spirit
who softened my heart

and makes me turn from the path i was on

showed me my desires were sin

and made my desires righteousness

i take 0 credit for anything i do that is good

but 100% credit for evil

Jesus leads to righteousness

not sin

I was pretty sick today, feel better though. Spent some time with an struggling addict, did some shopping, then did some writing. Some other stuff.
You spent time with a struggling addict?
§That's great.
What do you write?

We all struggle with something or other.
But drugs are pretty bad, right?

I guess that's your path, and your hope. Well if it's making you a better person for what you see then I see why you write like that. To me it sounds a bit hard to accept I'm nothing of myself, without something. I just think I'm made from the same miraculous stuff the universe is and for all my failings, there minor compared to how grand I am made on the inside.

It's said "we are as heavy as a million suns on the inside"

Very bad, very very bad.
I am writing a theory about emotional reactions.
Sounds interesting.
Care to share?
I'll be back later on in the day to read it if you do.
I have a granddaughter with autism.
I know something about emotional reactions!

Yes I see, tricky subject, I am not knowledge enough even with what I've discovered of our nature to say it couldn't be different.

Have you been a Christian for long?

nope
ive read the whole bible

compared translations

engaged in studies with the original languages

and still read the bible daily...


feel like a baby still

hahaha
like i just started

dont let me be any kind of authority

judge what people say by the word
not the word by what people say


i wasnt tryin to say youre wrong
or call you out in anyway

just disagree im capable of good without help from the holy spirit

id sayyy

about 4 years ago i found out God is real
and stopped being agnostic or atheistic


and about 2 years ago i got deeper into study

and less than a year ago is when i took repentance serious and started letting myself (the wickedness in me) die daily

No, did you think I was telling you to see good in yourself. I don't think there's good in anything, but we can be nice people.
