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.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
