Wide awake Boy falling
Did you ever felt you were unable to live a life that pleases God. You always wanted to have a good prayer life or wanted to have an intimate relationship with God. But world factors, busy schedules and sins will always let you not do it. Actually it is devil who always try to alter your agenda. It reminds me of a scripture which apostle Paul speaks in one of his epistles in Romans 7:15 He says "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do". So even paul who was an apostle by the will of Father God too had this problem, so we are not an exception. 

Then how do we have to come out of this struggle. I felt it is God himself who makes us walk in righteousness through faith. Hebrews 12: 2 says "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." So only thing we need to do is fix our eyes on Jesus who is the only way through which you can reach Father. For practical understanding I have uploaded an video from the movie wide awake where a boy tries to win a race for his grandfather but looses it by falling down. I will not explain but just see the video for yourself.

So as the grandfather interrupted the sister, Jesus also does interrupt the Father before he announces the winners. He will make you win the race and hold you in your arms. So whenever you fell in sin dont stay there and go far from God but in faith see Jesus who has spread his arms wide open for you to run towards Him. The closing verses of Jude Chapter goes like this "To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen." - Jude 1:24-25. Jesus is whom you should trust and rely upon, so  come close to Jesus he will come close to you and sin will run as far as east is separated from west. I have collected some of the scriptures which encourages us to run a straight run read them and write them in your hearts.

For God's will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time. -Hebrews 10:10

Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.- Hebrews 7:27

He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.- Hebrews 9:12 

Apostle Paul also says "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. - 2 Timothy 4:7". So we can also finish the race but in order to finish well we need to keep faith in Jesus.
