 Some days living up to the whole good-Christian image seems   impossible. You do the right things (well, most of the time), but   you just don’t feel changed by your faith. Deep down, you’re still   dealing with the ordinary struggles—control, insecurity,   comparison, fear, anger, and unforgiveness. The good news? You   don’t have to “fix” yourself. You have access to the power of   Christ.
