Only Him

To walk in the world
unattached to the world
to know enough to know that I know nothing
how much strength does it take
to allow weakness
how deep the need
to die afresh each day
each hour
each moment
for the flesh kicks, screams
marches into battle
and resolve crumbles
again and again

For I resolved to know nothing (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified.  1 Corinthians 2:2 Amplified

Joining with Peter Pollock and others - talking about resolution

Our resolved to be nothing without HIM, and to allow Jesus to be everything to us, then we can boldly say, the Lord is my helper and I will not fear. Our righteousness is as filthy rags, but praise God, He clothes us in His Righteousness and we are now looking good! someone elses armor will not fit, only the clothing that He puts on us will work. Once we have on His armor, then we are ready - - resolved to live each day for Him. To do battle if it need be with our enemy, knowing that with Jesus we will be victorious

The flesh that kicks, screams.

Yeah, I resemble that.

Nice work, Karin.
