God's strength

I just re-read the post i wrote on this board about a year ago and tears streamed down my face as i realised how much God has done since then. I was so desperate to stop my addiction to masturbation and so caught in the trap of darkness. But GOD HAS CHANGED ME. I now know that masturbation no longer needs to have a hold over my life. I hate it. I know that God has so much better for me. Whenever i am tempted I remember that God is so much better than any pleasure i could get from masturbation. He is SO MUCH BETTER. I would recommend anyone who struggles with this sin to read Joshua Harris' book 'Not even a hint' which is about fighting lust and masturbation. I would encourage everyone to confide in someone about their temptations. FLEE EVIL. Satan is a prowling Lion and he is desperate for anyway to make us feel far from God. Remember God's grace is always sufficient and we are totally free from all addiction and bondage with the blood of Christ. He is mighty to save and we can all defeat the darkness that surrounds us. There is no way that our flesh is greater than God. He is the creator of the universe, the almighty saviour the One who was and is and is to come!

Why can't i hurt enough to justify myself?

lord, when will i hurt myself enough to justify my own existence? why do i have to find meaning in screwing myself up further? if only i had the courage to not remain sick. if only i can tell myself i don't need to punish myself anymore, and that what i've already been through is enough for me not to have to inflict any more damage on myself? i've had enough of feeling like this, at least i think i have. until something comes along to bring me face to face with myself and all the hurt, and then i blow it by destroying myself and those around me....

Dear God, I am so dissapointed. Because after praying to you, for so many years for d, he is still using heroin. Alcohol and pills. I have been there for him for 15 years, and now we are barely speaking, he has turned away from me and it appears you, maybe Im wrong cos you see his heart. Pain from his estranged children, guilt I dunno. lots of pain in his heart, probably making him scared to open up to you. Lord please I pray, please breakthrough. never let the enemy or heroin take his life. In jesus name, i know you can break the addictions, I ve seenit in many lives who turned fully to you. Please show him your not as the musty church portrays from his childhood, but your a live andpowerful and can set him free if he would only com eto you and request that gently lord please wipe his tears, heal his wounds and bring him to wholeness and our friendship lord. I find the gear so hard to handle, ands his moods too, paul also lord touch him, remove the bad people from d's life, give d a thrist for you, break through the numbness of gear, break through lord i dont know what to pray i just feel great dissapointment. and I know you can transform,. you did me. t

guidance on recovery

please lord help me to be able to find the right sort of ministry at the moment. let me know if i should be having any more Christian deliverance ministry right now, or whether you want me to ride out the storm until i am ready for it. i feel fragile at the moment, but desperate and hope that i will be able to hear your clearly again on these things. i have so much confusion in my head over these things, i would dearly love to know what to do to shed this despair which will not shift, even when i try my hardest (altho' i'm losing the will to try much at the moment).

God I don't really know what to say, it's been so long since we last spoke. I'm so sorry that I've abandoned you to a life of drinking and unholiness, I don't know what's happened t me. I used to be your faithful child, and now I am left empty and worthless ot the extent that I attempted suicide. Lord I want a life with you again, I am ready to start anew. Jesus please take the wheel of my life once more, becuase I can't go on by myself, I thought I coudl and how wrong I was father! Please forgive me for the countless sins I have comitted over the last few months, especially for nearly takign my own life, please help me to get better, I feel so ill and pathetic. Help me to be strong and cut down drinking, especially as being 14 i am breaking the laws of your earth, please help to to be strong in you once more, for I have become to weak. I know teh only way I can get back on track is through you, and I am so sorry for thinking I can do without you! Please forgive me Jesus, I want to be your daughter once more. Please forgive me Lord

keep lashing out at self/others

lord i'm here again 'cos i'm hurting those closest to me. you know i hurt so much still 'cos of being hurt emotionally, verbally, and threatened physically by a parent, as a child, and then later i was sexually assaulted by two men in my twenties, 'cos i was too full of panic and self-disgust to fight them off. i keep telling myself that the abuse wasn't severe enough to cause me the severe mental/emotional disorders i suffer from, (major Borderline Personality Disorder with Depression and self-harming tendancies) and i need to grow up. i still feel like i missed out on my childhood, and need others around me to be patient. i crave affirmation from others, which makes me self-centered and demanding. i know i need to pull myself together, im 25 now, but i am scared of my dad, even tho' i forgive him, but i despise myself for still behaving the way i do. its like i'm not allowed to feel my pain, 'cos my dad was a christian and never meant to be violent or abusive. i love him, i only wish i could get well, so he could forgive himself. i cannot accept that what happened was trivial tho' 'cos i missed out on so much stability when i was growing up, i don't know how to not sabotage the blessings i have been given.
