Bam, Wham!, do you ever find that you are your own worst enemy? Well, if you're anything like me you've done this numerous times.

You beat yourself up for decisions that you've made, or thoughts that you have had all the while thinking you are the worst person ever!

Well, taking a correct self inventory is not necessarily a bad thing but as with all things, we can take it to an extreme. We have to learn to find that middle ground for that sweet spot where we are not condemning our self, but instead correcting our self.

The Holy Spirit is our still small voice that reminds us. He tells us when there's areas of our lives that need adjusting and helps us find a way to adjust them. Satan, on the other hand, is the great condemnor. He wants nothing more than for you to feel horrific about the decisions that you have made or the actions that you have taken.

There is this beautiful thing call to repentance. What this means is that if we had done something or said something wrong, we ask God for forgiveness and we make a rational decision to stop doing or saying that the tick killer thing.

Now no one ever said it was going to be easy. Being able to sacrifice our wants and desires to please God can be difficult at times. But saying no to ourselves is sometimes the best decision we will ever make.

So the next time you decide to beat yourself up for something that you have done, look back at the situation and try to find the rational solution. Be willing to change for God and be willing to except your own weaknesses.

There will be times where you will feel like you are repenting and repenting and repenting, but that is normal. That is why Jesus came for us. He took it upon the cross. He took Carson wants for all times.

Many people feel that because Jesus took our sins that they can live a lackadaisical life, but quite the opposite is true. When we have a true appreciation for what Jesus did for us, we will want to spend our time thinking and trying to be a better person. Remember that faith without works is dead and useless.
