Today’s confession

This morning my wife and I had a time of prayer, for our situation and the ministry. Right after the prayer, I told my wife that I was again having struggles with porn, lustful masturbation and the like. I asked her for prayer and was also at the same time praying that she wouldn’t be hurt.

She smiled and comforted me. She said she had some thoughts too recently, then she prayed for me. I really thank God for my wife, she’s such an amazing person, full of grace and mercy, strong and eager to serve Him. I really can’t imagine anyone else bearing with me and my sinful habits.

Furthermore, we are going to make a conscious effort towards improving the intimacy between us and all that jazz

Praise the Lord for today ! 2018 will truly be a year unlike any other !

  1. Brother,
    Your honesty and vulnerability show your heart and earnest desire to be free. In Christ, we are free! (John 8:36). I encourage you to keep seeking truth and believing God. The people who read this blog are being released from satans lie of “I’m the only one who struggles like this.” Amongst other things. To God be the glory!

    I’ve battled similar things before. Jesus said IT IS FINISHED when He died on the cross. The reality is forgiveness and freedom. The lie is shame and chains. Keep going to Jesus, no matter what. His grace is sufficient. His death is our life. Praying for you and your wife. Keep fighting the good fight!

    Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
    Hebrews 12:1‭-‬4 ESV

    Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
    1 Corinthians 10:12‭-‬14 ESV

    There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
    Romans 8:1‭-‬4 ESV

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
    Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23 ESV

    Thank you Jesus! Our salvation depends on what you did, not on our works! Thank you for your steadfast love and faithfulness. Bless this man and his wife. Fill them with the knowledge of your will. Holy Spirit, flood their hearts. Help them resist the devil and give them daily the strength to follow you and love you with all their heart, mind, strength, and soul.

    But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
    James 4:6‭-‬8 ESV
