Sometimes we let our sins get the best of us. We strive and strive and still fall short. There are many reasons for this but at the end of the day we are burdened. Heavily burdened with the weight of our sins. What? Is there no hope or relief?  There is. Look to what Charles Spurgeon had to say on this and look to the verse he cites, Psalm 46:1.

Art thou burdened with this day's sins? Here is a fountain filled with blood: use it, saint, use it. Has a sense of guilt returned upon thee? The pardoning grace of Jesus may be proved again and again. Come to Him at once for cleansing. Dost thou deplore thy weakness? He is thy strength: why not lean upon Him? Dost thou feel naked? Come hither, soul; put on the robe of Jesus' righteousness. Stand not looking at it, but wear it. Strip off thine own righteousness, and thine own fears too: put on the fair white linen, for it was meant to wear.

    God is our refuge and strength,
        a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46:1 ESV)
