feeling weak
3/10/2012 7:45:04 AM
usually i'm the one making positive comments to everyone on here. but not lately. i feel so weak. i feel like every moment alone is a struggle. if it's not my strongest weakness then it's food.
it's absolutely true what it says in the addiction recovery book, about how addictions mute out the spirit. i don't know if i have felt the spirit in over a week or more.
just so tired of fighting.


Then stop fighting    
"And start surrendering to the Lord. Fighting can be exhausting. It can wear us down. And the truth is we aren't strong enough. But the Lord is. That is the beauty of life. We don't have to be David and we don't have to fight Goliath. We just have to be in the right army. We can't surrender to Goliath. But we can join the Israelite army and let the Lord be David. He will win our battles. The SA White Book is an amazing guide for surrendering to the Lord. I encourage you to read it. I'm pretty sure you can find a free PDF version online."

When ae your moments of weakness?    
"It seems that each person is different. I've found that for me, it was when I was bored and alone. I currently have nothing going on in my life so I feel like there is no reason not too. But I think I've changed since the last time I looked at porn.

Again, when are you weak?"

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
