But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
James 1 KJV
http://bible.com/1/jas.1.14.KJV

Is it worth it? Is it worth taking the chance? Is it worth letting it change you? Is it worth a little piece of you dying inside? Is it worth chiseling away at your character? 

Because if you go down that road, you will have to surrender who you are to become someone else. You will become calloused to the behavior until it didn’t bother you anymore.

How far are you willing to go? How deep do you think you can go before you drown. Will you ever recover?

How often have you heard the story good girl gone bad. You have to think to yourself how long did it take for her to realize she had crossed over. How long did it take her to look in the mirror and realize she didn’t recognize herself anymore. How long before it was too late to turn back to the innocent one she used to be. 

Your inner desires sit dormant until they can be used against you. The only way to keep them under control is to deal with the very thing you want to ignore. We all have temptations, things we secretly struggle with. Things we hope no one will find out about. Don’t let the enemy use them against you. Fight for freedom before you fall victim to the battle of your mind.

Fear Has Been My Drug!

I love this quote!

#lifelesson1. It’s ok to be afraid but don’t let fear cripple you from accomplishing your goals. Stop thinking about what others think and live to please an audience of one! Jesus!

#lifelesson2. Complacency is not contentment. We have to strive to be better and greater. We should be our biggest competition. 

#lifelesson3. Growing is a part of life. Just try it in faith even when you have no idea of what you are doing. Trust God to guide you through the process. 

#lifelesson4. Envision yourself accomplishing your goals! See yourself in the future and truly believe you can have better because you deserve better.

#lifelesson5. Struggle is a part of the process. You can have more because you worked harder for it. You may struggle, but it will be worth it. 

#lifelesson6. It’s all in your mind. We sike ourselves out of our blessing when we assume it’s to hard to reach. My biggest enemy is the inner me!

#lifelesson7. Don’t let the devil make you think it is harder than it really is. You have gifts and talents. You are important. You have a contribution! You are more than you give yourself credit for.

#lifelesson8. Don’t let the spirit of laziness and procrastination rule your life. Seize every opportunity and take advantage of resources you have available to you. 

#lifelesson9. Keep going! Most of all, don’t let resistance and failure weigh you down. If things are not coming together try the alternative. Figure out a way to accomplish what you set out to do. 

#lifelesson10. “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.” ‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I am really talking to myself, I just thought I would share this with you. I am in recovery. Fear has been my drug of choice, what’s yours??
