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 @"

"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"

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
