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.

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
