-What-I-would-not- by outwardlyupward -What-I-would-not- by outwardlyupward
For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

Romans 7:15-24

When I saw this I had to :+fav: it. It is a deep visual for the truth of a changed (changing) life. Very apt to all people honestly, but well suited to the *christians where I first saw it. Certainly feels close to home for me. It is quite a struggle at times.

:) Thanks for this.

I love how the broken pencil and the tear drops add to the affect. Very very nicely done

Very nice work, and very strong message. For that's what life is, struggling between the old and new, the good and bad,
to find the right.
Great work, mate :)
