Being Honest...

This morning was tough I woke up this morning and had the urges to do something I have been working on not wanting to feel. I have been working on a contract for a company and it ended a July 22nd. I was able to go to Scout Camp with my son..It was his very first time..and what a great experience. Upon returning, the company I work for said they dont have anything going on right now and would let me know.

The contract I was working was at a hospital and they are working on getting budget to have me start in Jan. full time. My wife and I both feel strong that is going to happen. So in the mean time I am helping around the house...and Satan is working in overtime hours on me.

I woke up this morning and began to check emails, and answer a few..and I heard a voice that made shake a little..It is a feeling of.."come on, everyone is asleep still.." There are times when you think it is just easier to give in..However for me I have done that to much, and I am tired of giving Satan that gratification...I want my Heavenly Father to be happy I stood up to the adversary one more day... I knew right there that I needed to come on here and type what I was feeling to get those thoughts out of my head. I know this is going to be a process and I hope what I am writing can help others as well.

There are a lot of things that Satan uses against us...losing jobs..the burdens of finances..and lack of communication with our loved ones. However I know that Heavenly Father does not give us challenges that we can not handle if we know where to look and ask for help.

I am here to share my struggles and hopefully my encouragements..I am grateful for this site. So that I can come on here and blog my feelings and struggles with others that understand.


"What a fantastic post!"

"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."
