This morning I was prompted to fast. I didn't know why. It was a good thing I did though because it has been a morning full of temptation. With the help of God, I've been able to resist the temptations. I pray that will continue.


"It's awesome you are at a place where you are close enough to the Spirit to feel those promptings! You WILL be able to resist in His loving arms. :)"

I have learned the really celebrate your successes. It's my way of staying positive and moving forward. Again, congratulations on your triumph! :)"

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
