What I do, I do not understand. For I do not do what I want, but I do what I hate." - Romans 7:15
Most twelve-step recovery programs have a concept of personal powerlessness. "I am powerless," is an often-quoted statement meant as a reminder that we are not in control. In fact, our emotional response to a given situation may be so overwhelming, we feel out of control. Instead of trying to manage what we cannot, it is better to admit our lack of understanding. Paul had a similar take on himself: some times, he just could not figure himself out. We would be better off in following Paul, by recognizing our own limitations.

may you have a 'figured out' Tuesday.

Ecclesiastes 1New King James Version (NKJV)
The Vanity of Life
1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 “Vanitya]">[a] of vanities,” says the Preacher;
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”

3 What profit has a man from all his labor
In which he toils under the sun?
4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes;
But the earth abides forever.
5 The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,
And hastens to the place where it arose.
6 The wind goes toward the south,
And turns around to the north;
The wind whirls about continually,
And comes again on its circuit.
7 All the rivers run into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full;
To the place from which the rivers come,
There they return again.
8 All things are full of labor;
Man cannot express it.
The eye is not satisfied with seeing,
Nor the ear filled with hearing.

9 That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things,
Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
By those who will come after.
