Staying Strong, and awareness that is scarey

I have noticed that my eyes and thoughts wonder a lot more than I was aware. This is shocking, and that I know I am accountable for thoughts and deeds then I will need to really ask for help to get a handle on it.

Lust, the silent sin that I have held onto comfortably. I am praying to give it up.

Only with the Savior...


Good job!    
"I know it's scary coming to realize and become aware of another layer of our addictions.. but this is actually good news. God has given you another layer to turn over to Him. And when you do He will take it and you will be free of it. And then He'll probably show you another layer. This provides the opportunity to constantly turn your will over to Him. It allows you to practice humility and surrender... and the added bonus is you get better too! :-)"

Hey, Been there, done that. :)    
"Lucky for me, I have corrective lenses. I can take them out when I desperately need to. Others I have spoken to in SA have done this also. If you have glasses/contacts, maybe this could help?

I'm praying for you, Sobermind. Hang in there. :)"

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
