    I used to carry hate, spite, jealousy, and contempt towards others, in one hand. In the other, depression, self destruction, and thoughts of suicide.

    I cared little for others and even less for myself. I was selfish and thoughtless. I carried heavy loads of harmful bio-hazard. At the time, I had no idea of the poison that ran through my veins.
    I was sinking in quick sand full of my own negativity.

    Thank God, for the wake up call. I don't know when I changed, I just know I have. I choose to be a light to others. I want others to see Christ in my life!
    When this body is no more, my soul lives on, as I continue to praise God in all his glory!
    This is my Life Song.

    15: I don't understand myself at all, for i want to do what is right, but i can't. I do what i want to -- what i hate. 16: I know perfectly well that what i'm doing is wrong, and my conscience proves that i agree with the laws i am breaking. 17: but i c an't help myself, because i'm no l onger doing it. It is the sin inside me that is stronger than i am that makes me do these evil things. 18: I know i am rotten through and through so far as my old sinful nature is concerned. No matter which way i turn, I can't make myself do right. I want to but i can't. 19: When i want to do good, i don't; and when i try not to do wrong, i do it anyway. 20: Now if i'm doing what i don't want to, it's plain where the trouble is: sin still has it's evil grasp on me. 21: It seems to be a fact of life that when i want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. 22: I love to do God's will so far as my new nature is concerned; 23: There is something else deep inside me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fightwhich makes me a slave to the sin that is still inside me. In my mind I want to be God's willing servant but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. 24: So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. 25: Oh, what a Terrible Predicament I'm in ! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature ? Thank God ! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free.
