After the trial of your faith

I'm at about day 72, which, for me, is a big deal. I was doing great when I hit a rough patch over the last week or two. Basically I had lost the desire to be clean and was getting perilously close to acting out again. though I prayed and did what I could to overcome the temptation, it wasn't going away. Finally It got so bad all I could do was turn it over to the Lord again.

I feel amazing again. I know that we will be continually tested and tried no matter how diligent we are, but I also know the Lord is there with is. He fights our battles for us and is always willing to help. Though the trials and temptations will come, stick through them and the Lord will bless you tremendously. I know he's here with us. And I know he is helping every single one of us.

Thanks everyone for the support and the opportunity to vent. God bless whoever came up with this website.

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life.
