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! :)"

"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."
