Colossians 3:9 NASB "Do not lie to one another, since you stripped off the old self with its evil practices,"I'm sure we have all heard that old saying "Houston, we have a problem!". Today's Word speaks about Truth verses lies and how once we have taken off our old ways, we shouldn't go back to them! Having the courage to admit we have a problem takes courage! Admitting that we need help shouldn't be as hard as facing the problem. Only when we admit that we need help, can help begin to come. Years ago, I tried to do things all by myself. I had this attitude that I didn't need anyone, that is until I ran into problems where I did need someone else's help. I realized that admitting my failures would actually help me in the long term and asking for help took more courage than trying to go it alone. Of course the best place to get help is to admit we need Christ, the Holy Spirit and God the Father in our lives. With that kind of help, we won't slip back into our old ways! peace, tom
