i went to a quiet spot this morning and read this:
"with focused attention and great care, you have to 'work out' what God 'works in' you - not work to accomplish or earn "your own salvation," but work it out so you will exhibit the evidence of a life based with determined, unshakable faith on the complete and perfect redemption of the Lord. as you do this, you do not bring an opposing will up against God's will - God's will is your will. your natural choices will be in accordance with God's will, and living this life will be as natural as breathing."
