We may have some harmful habits. We may have some unwanted character traits.
We may feel like our tendencies, automatic responses, emotions, wants and desires are pulling us away from the person we wish to become. We may feel like a failure, having repeatedly tried to change ourselves, with nothing to show for it. But we were not intended to live life this way. We were not created to face our battles on our own. God is ready and waiting to give us His power to overcome all harmful influences that want to control our lives. He wants to heal and restore us.
