Struggling today...

Hi everyone, I am struggling today... I spoke to my Bishop a couple nights ago, I thought I was getting back onthe right path, but today I feel discouraged. I am looking for a job with not much luck as of yet, and I am staying with friends which can be stressful as I really want my own place again. I did a few things wrong today. I masterbated, looked at porn (briefly), and I smoked a cigarette and I said a lie. I don't know what is going wrong with me today. I want to live by the gospel and have my heart fully changed to Christ and his church. I feel so dirty and useless to Heavenly Father. I don't like this, any words of encouragement would be appreciated.. DaveC38

Don't let Satan win    
"The feelings you have of uselessness and discouragement--the feelings that you will never get it right--are not from Heavenly Father. PRAY to him. Describe your specific feelings. Tell him that you feel like doing bad things. Then, ask him to be with you and to tell you what HE thinks of you. Then, open your scriptures and look for his response."

I SEE a man    
"Who want's to be better. That's great. I see that, and that is an amazing quality for a person. If you simply want to talk to somebody, my email is moronidenovo @ yahoo.com"

Thanks...    
"I woke up this morning feeling as if Heavenly Father wants me to pray to him. And I will... I wantto do better, but I tend to beat up on myself, thank you for the words of encouragement, I do appreciate them all. And Moronidenovo, expect an e mail from me sometime soon. It would be good to meet you. Be blessed today, and thank you again, DaveC38"

"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."
