Learning from failures

Genesis 14:11-1211 Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way. 12 They also took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. (NKJV) Living in an exceedingly wicked place cost Lot everything but his life. You would think if you lost everything you […]

No strings attached love

Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. (NKJV) We receive a repeated message from a telemarketer that informs us that they are waiting to deliver our free “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” monitor. The guy on the message sounds like your best buddy and genuinely concerned for our […]

Let Jesus be your husband

Let Jesus be your husband: 1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NKJV) For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; Let me state the obvious. I have never been a female and my wife reminds me if I was I would make a very poor one. I’m never sure if that’s […]

Breaking the Cycle

I had to face the harsh reality that even though I always felt bad about my sin, I still enjoyed it and I “protected” my sin. The fact is, I was unable to stop my sex sin cycle and I was unable to change. Only GOD was able to change me. But in order for that to happen, I had to get out of His way.

Through the Lying Eyes of Pornography/Part one:

I struggled through many relationships in my early adulthood. Rejection after rejection made my escape to pornography a habit. I didn’t have to wonder what those women thought. Their eyes were always approving. Never rejecting. I feared rejection so much I often, very painfully, broke off relationships so I could say I wasn’t the one to get dumped.

The Wise Men’s Example

The wise men still sought Jesus even after all the angels and shepherds had gone home. They could have discarded and put away their enthusiasm regarding this journey. They did not and they continued until they found Him. Let’s follow the wise men’s example and seek, follow, and worship Him year round through our daily normal activities.

Slavery- Part 2- Finding True Freedom

The blessing for me is my restoration is not built on some “spiritual high” that will fade. God’s grace is sufficient for everything that any of us are struggling with and whatever wasteland we have created he will give us a stream that provides life. What we do with that life is our choice. Gods grace is sufficient, but it’s his truth that will set us free. One of my favorite worship songs says it this way “My chains are gone, I’ve been set free. My savior, God, has ransomed me. And like a flood, his mercy rains. Unending love, Amazing Grace”. Today, I choose a true freedom.

Slavery-part 1

Freedom. A word that Americans feel such a deep connection with, but seem to have such little comprehension of. Sexual addiction had its grips on my life for 20 years. For a 30-year-old man that number is haunting and large. Society and opportunity both gave me “freedom” to make the choices to lead a life full of sexual sin. However, the truth of the matter was my addiction was slavery.
