    It's easy to sing the song "I know I've been changed"
    Proclaming trud deliverance from a life estranged
    Vowing NEVER to backslide into past sins,... obsurd
    Not realizing that NEVER is a strong, strong word
    The word NEVER brings out all temptations,... then & now
    For the very purpose of challenging my bow
    Mounting an attack from the person inside
    With a barrage of whispers, discouragement, and pride
    Very easy it is to fall into self, and on my own strength call
    Not realizing that its my own strength that makes me fall -
    Back into the things I said I'd never do again
    And because of pride and self pity, I'm back that that same sin
    So what went wrong,... didn't God hear my prayer
    Problem was, I put more on myself than I could bear
    Trying to live my WHOLE life sinless at the moment of deliverance was my crime
    Instead of taking my deliverance one day at a time

    Thank you both. We all indeed have to take our deliverance,... one day at a time.

    Life changing events can happen in one day, enough to deal with at a time I'd say. Thanks for pulling this out of the archives asimplepoet, great write garlicsalt.
