70 days clean today. Glory be to God. Still striving to ensure all aspects of my life are in balance. I still believe that staying morally clean is managing our impulses before they get out of control.


Thoughts on impulses and compulsions.    
"Its pretty much the same thing. But I see an impulse as the inclination to do something. By definition, a compulsion is the next stage where after entertaining the inclination it becomes irresistible force to do something about it. I consider this the danger zone. If I can manage the impulses, I can stay clear of compulsions to do or when it can become even difficult to resist."

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"
