Struggling with sexual sin

This post meant a lot to me for multiple reasons. One being that women are becoming addicted to porn and masturbation at an alarming rate and it breaks my heart.

Eniola is a voice shouting at the monster and saying there is freedom.

The second reason this meant so much to me was that a dear friend mentioned the whole box scenario to me just the other day and to then read it here was a confirmation to me. My lid to that box is closed and put away not to be opened again. Here is what Eniola had to say about the box…

I have opened the box before but I have also forced the lid shut, so I acknowledge that it’s going to be harder for me to keep it shut after opening it before. So I don’t take chances.

Have you ever wondered why God gave us all these raging hormones and intense feelings, yet he asks us not to express them until we’re married. It’s like giving a child a box of tantalizing chocolates and asking him not to open them until a day or time that may never come.

I feel like that a lot of times. I think there’s just something about being young that makes us burn with passion. Even the Apostle Paul recognises this. The world that we live in does not make things easier. Everywhere you go, something about sex is thrown into your face. Sex has been idolised and made the newest trend. It’s like a train every young person wants to catch.

At one point or the other, we’ll be sorely tempted to give in to the demands of our flesh and if you’re like me, I have given in a…

A Glimpse Into My Life Outside The Blogging World

I figured I would do something a little different...well a lot different for me. A glimpse into my life outside of the blogging world. Yesterday my daughter, Erin and I went out for Sushi at our favorite Thai restaurant. It always been a taste test as we always get four rolls. Something new each time… Continue reading A Glimpse Into My Life Outside The Blogging World

Life; The Fight!

I am sharing this because there are way too many nuggets in here to not share.

What a wonderful story Warren gives us. One of how life can knock us down and bring us to our knees.

A testimony, if you will, of how life sucker punched him, kicked him and knocked him until finally he came face to face with the cross. Life didn’t change after that encounter…Warren did.

As I said there are so many nuggets in here but this one spoke the most to me and it just happens to be true…To know that life is best fought, with a surrendered heart!

God bless you brother!

iWrite... my love story!

Life, can sometimes come at you hard; that you think you’re in a fight, a fight for your life. I learned at an early age, how to bob and weave pretty good. Float like a butterfly, no; I wasn’t the greatest, but I knew how to hold my own… heart. Life just wouldn’t allow me to catch my breath, so I just held it all in; breathing seemed to be optional. But life still decided to hit me with a sucker punch; it knocked me to One knee. I was absolutely stunned; life should have known, I wasn’t about to stay down. So I gathered up my pride, stuck it back in my heart and said; life, is that all you have… to offer?

So I got off my knee, got back in the fight; only to continue with the same bobbing and weaving routine. I wasn’t a sucker. Yeah…

WITHOUT A DOUBT

Guys, go check out this wonderful post on something we all suffer from at times…doubt. Then go and do this…

Share your testimony with someone who doubts in the LORD. Show them HIS hands on your life and tell it in an authentic way, because our testimonies are our biggest examples of the TRUTH.

The power behind a testimony is amazing!

HEAVENSREEF

If you are like me, there are times where doubt creeps into your life.  We as humans tend to be doubters.  We doubt that our money will not go far enough, that a needed check will never arrive on time and that a deadline will not be met.  We doubt and yes, we worry.  How often do we doubt GOD too?

We read HIS words and we sing HIS praises, but still we doubt.  We doubt HE will answer in spite of all HIS promises given to us in the bible.  We doubt ourselves, we doubt others and we doubt the ONE who promised HE would never leave us.

DEUTERONOMY 31: 6 “……..FOR IT IS THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO GOES WITH YOU, HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.”

PSALM 94: 14 ” FOR THE LORD WILL NOT FORSAKE HIS PEOPLE; HE WILL NOT ABANDON HIS HERITAGE.”

We…
