Standing when you have fallen

Standing when you have fallen.
In Romans 7 Paul says that ..

19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing... and 'For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do'

This is me, this is every christian person. We commit our lives to God, we promise ourselves that we are going to live the way God wants us to. Then we do the very thing we told others not to do, what we never thought we will do. Guilt. Heavy guilt.

How now can I be a christian with this sin I have done? If I do christian things I will be a hypocrite.

This is my conclusion, maybe it sounds like having a split personality. But even if I condemn my self, I know my sin, even if everyone - me including thinks I am a hypocrite to 'try and be' a chritian. With my mind, my MIND I am going to do what I can (pray, seek, sing, reading, beg for mercy)

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[d] a slave to the law of sin

and trust in God's mercy so see me through.

I am going to stand even if I have fallen
