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."

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "
