Finding freedom in Jesus Christ from sexual and relational sin

Helpful Recovery Tips from Sexual Addiction
Tip #2: Keep a journal

Sexual sin grows in a secret compartmentalized place that we protect from reality. Dismantling this idol will involve exposing it to the reality of God’s Truth, confronting lies and assessing the cost of sexual sin. This healing process will involve the practice of writing it out, praying it out and talking it out. The it part of that statement is God’s Truth, confronting the lies and assessing the costs. Lets look at the process of writing it out. Keep a safe, confidential, paper, hand written journal. There is a different processing in your brain when you hand write as opposed to punching buttons on a key board. As God reveals His Truth to you each day, take it personal and write it down. When God gives you a victory in dealing with a temptation, write it down. When God exposes a lie you believed that supported your sexual sin, write it down and assault it with His Truth. You will be inventorying the cost of your sexual sin (we will be covering this later) and you guessed it, write it down.
Writing things down takes it out of your head and makes them stationary. You can look back as you continue in your healing and see how you have progressed from a previous stage.
