Giving it to God

My testimony today is that I know God lives. Jesus Christ is His Son, and they both love me. Jesus is very loving and kind to me. He cares about me, and about every detail of my life. He is my Savior. He suffered for my sin, and I love him. Jesus is my dear Friend. If it weren’t for my addiction, I wouldn’t have ever known Him like I know Him now. For the past 3 weeks, I have given my life and will to the loving care of my Savior. For that whole time, one day at a time, He has blessed me with sobriety from viewing pornography and masturbation. I love the Lord! He is my Rock. I love all of you, too. May God bless you and keep you all day today. Let us all reach out and help another.


"Thank you for this."

"I love that line...

so much of this addiction stuff is viewed as 1 person who must go to meetings.
1 person who must confess his sins and find a therapist


I want to see FAMILIES WIN... and building a healthy family structure built on the foundation of jesus christ is truly safest place on earth (well maybe a family inside a temple, but you get the idea)

anyways... I have so many hopes and dreams for our church to lead the way (by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,that ye show love one to another)

Satan may have HAD the power to bruise our heels for the past 10 years... but we ARE a mighty force for good... and I truly believe that as we reach out an help each other.. satan loses power just that much.. and it spreads little by little.

man I'm so fired up right now... I just love what we are all up to.. in our individuals lives... like a rock cut out of a mountain... we ARE rolling, (slowly at times, but definitely surely)"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
