Hang it up! There's not a chance...

A spirit of defeatism can be expected if everything depends on us. If it’s up to our actions to save ourselves, then, yeah, it’s too late—way too late. A spirit of defeatism comes because we don’t accurately take into account how the Father will respond when we come home.—AHA Student Edition electronic edition

Amen to that! This is not a self-help book! This is a "obey the Lord and he will live it through you" book. It is all about the presence of the Holy Spirit convicting (the AHA moment), enlightening (the brutally honest moment), and empowering (the obedience step). If you carry through with the second and third steps, God will transform you...and watch the subject of those sentences: it's always God.
