Getting Real

I've made attempts to pretend I don't have a problem. I am getting Real today. I lust, I give into temptation, I sin. I am an addict and I have an addiciton that existed before the substances I gave up in my twenties. Last night after waking up from the couch and climbin into bed late I found a site and began "exploring" I could barely close the site after indulging. I know chemicals were released, unhealthy thoughts were planted. I am powerless over this addiction and only Jesus Christ can offer me a pathway out. I am begininng a new path with a new addiction. I have belief that this will help.

What I have been given so far for strength- A prayer last night with humility and godly sorrow and guilt. I asked him for the power to overcome this. I was inspired this morning to listen to the October 2011 conference again from the very first talk I recieved tools I can use imediately.

1) Learn the scriptures
2) read the scriptures
3) memorize and ponder the scriptures
4) The scriptures memorized and understood are friends that we can call upon in both triumphant sharing and light we can utilize in darkness tempting.

Thank you to the creator of LDSAR.org... Here we go again!

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
