What scripture characters and stories speak to your souls about the struggle against sexual addiction?

Here are some that I find to be very poignant every time I read them:

1) King David -- his entire life story.
2) The penitent tax collector (Luke 18:13)
3) Peter walking on the water (Matt. 14:28-31)
4) The woman taken in adultery (John 8:3-11)
5) Nephi building a ship (1 Nep. 17:50-51)
6) Moroni and the title of liberty (Alma 46:12)
7) Peter denying the savior thrice (Matt. 26:75)
8) Paul and his thorn in the flesh (2 Cor. 12:7-10)

The struggle of Enos    
"He spoke of the "great wrestle" that he had in asking the Lord for a remission of his sins. He prayed all day and well into the night before he received his answer."

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
