If I can give you some advice brother;
Experiment and test everything,
Trying changing your perspective,
Ask different questions.

It’s great you are being fully honest and acknowledging your need for grace, keep working at that pragmatism,
Put your emotions on the shelf.
Keep testing, in a humble way, don’t let pride take over.
And narrow in, disregarding everything else,
on the thing that starts a small spark.
That little voice. Find silence, away from labels and ideas, be still, calm your soul.

Don’t get too contempt, but stand firm,
Narrow your eyes, furrow your eyebrows.
Start blessing every good little thing you notice.
Start loving people dearly, and love/forgive yourself :pray:

Be still my soul the Lord is on thy side,
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain,
Leave to thy God to order and provide,
In every change He faithful will remain,
Be still my soul thy best, thy heavenly friend,
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

I am a Christian, new to this site and would love to fellowship with other Christians so we could help each other in this struggle… Also btw, how do you PM someone on this thing?

Thanks

You can click on someone’s user name, and see their profile which will give you the option to send them a message, but I’m sure you’ve figured that out already :smile::+1:
If not, it could be a feature for the more active users.

If you’re up for a challenge, why not come join Daily Check-in Challenge?
it’s aim is to ‘simply’ check-in everyday.

Peace be with you :+1:

Hey man. Remembering the hard times really works for me. Im on day 91 now. You have to think the hard times in your life, and ask yourself, “Do I really want that kind of life”? If your answer is No then you must change now. If I can do it, you can do it too.

For all those who dont understand why God let us fall into this adiction, he always has his plans and guides us with his grace : "Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”. 2 Corinthians 7-9. Let’s fight together in the Lord’s faith. Sharing code: 1b5335

I’ve always wanted to be free of this. But I’ve not always been a believer. When I was 8 I learnt what masturbation was when I used a bathroom hand faucet and I didn’t even know what it was called. I explored like any child would. And I got into a lot of weird stuff really early and it’s hovered over me like a dark cloud. I loathed myself for not being able to say no to myself, and to men. I tried to stop multiple times till I embraced it thinking that it was who I was etc. I got deeper still, all the while ignoring the loathing and numbing the pain with more sex and more distraction and other habits and addictive patterns.
Last year I met Jesus. I learnt that with Christ all things are possible. I was sceptical but I prayed about depression and the meds I was taking. I said “Jesus, if you want me to have a fulfilling life, it starts here. I don’t want to be depressed and medicating so I’m gonna stop and you need to take care of me.” That day (14 Feb '18) I stopped taking the tablets and I never had to again. When I realised that things were happening I prayed about other stuff. And many mountains moved. And I was like woh man I’ve been trying to sort this stuff out for ages. So I made an excel sheet to map the praying. Finally, November last year, I thought I should tackle the porn masturbation thing. And it was mad difficult. C’mon, 17 years is no joke. But I kept trusting the truth that I am free and I talked to Jesus a lot. And here I am.

So it is faith based but it’s not rules based.

I’m a Christian, a young preacher actually. Struggled with this long before I got saved about 2 uears ago.


#394

Is it weird that when I hear that it is difficult for other people too, it makes me feel less like a failure and gives me hope?


#395

No, it’s pretty natural. I’m glad that you see you’re not alone!
