Hello, I am new on this board and I have recently started to get involved on prophecy and stuff and I am pretty amazed on how soon I feel the Lord is coming.<br>
<br>
I am son of a Pastor from Argentina, for years I have lived on my own (I am 27 soon 28). I have been involved on a particular local church but the past years I have been not making good choices and walked away from Jesus.<br>
<br>
I am right now willing to come back but I am being confronted over and over again with many sins I have done for a long time and I feel very hard for me to detach from them.<br>
<br>
I pray and cry for God to help me overcome this moment and to give me strength to accept his forgiveness and live my life walking with him but I end falling again and blaming myself for the failure =/.<br>
<br>
The bible says to confess my sins to my brothers thus I want you guys to know that I am having problems with my sexuality, specifically *********** and also with lies about me I have spread to a lot of people.<br>
<br>
I know I have to come out with the truth and I know God has the power to help me through this moments when I sincerely want to go back with him, but I also feel that I need the help of brothers and sisters who can "battle" with me.<br>
<br>
I'll be here from now on, I have been reading a lot and I feel already attached to many of you without you knowing. I hope and have faith that Jesus will help me and we all will find ourselves blessed in the end, nevertheless I request your help in prayer.<br>
<br>
Also if anyone wants to specifically help me, or has lived a situation like this, I work and have MSN / ICQ online almost all the time so I would appreciate any help, just ask me.<br>
<br>
Thanks for everything<br>
<br>

Welcome Joel! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> I will pray for you too! <br>
You know, over the years I noticed something rather strange. The things that used to CONSUME me - sinful things - just...they do not come to mind much anymore. <br>
<br>
I will tell you something that God has shown me and that has helped me: we have His word that He will help us - we do not have to go it alone. Look at Jesus - keep your eyes on HIM. Confess your sins, yes, but don't sit and stare at them all day - look at JESUS. I have learned that, despite what society at large tries to tell us, we can control what we think about.<br>
It takes a bit of practice (meaning the first few days are a bit challenging because I might be USED to constantly thinking of something), but if I refuse to sit around and obsess on something, if I refuse to even spend a MINUTE dwelling on that tempting sin, it has a hard time keeping a hold of me!<br>
A rabbi once said "Our thoughts are like birds - we cannot always stop them flying into our heads, but we CAN decide whether or not to build them a nest".<br>
<br>
While studying prophecy I have learned SO much about God, and as you have probably noticed, the more you learn about God (through talking with God AND reading His Word), the more you WANT to know! God is truly so fascinating that we could ponder Him all day and be nothing but refreshed and looking forward to speaking with Him again when we wake up the next morning!<br>
<br>
Perhaps you could ask God, in the name of Jesus, and BELIEVING (God doesn't lie and He said He would help us!), to help you brush those thoughts away. <br>
Know what I say when a sin comes into my head - something I would formerly have sat down and really thought and daydreamed about? I say NO! GET LOST! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :boxer --><img src=http://www.smileys.ws/sm/sport/00000052.gif ALT=":boxer"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
And then I move on, and pray to God about something else - we just chat. I don't sit and ask Him repeatedly during that chat to help me overcome - I know He will, and praying constantly about this one thing would be a form of LIVING in that sin in my thoughts, so I ask for God's help knowing He will give it, and then we talk about other stuff <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
<br>
Good to see you here, Joel! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :whoohoo --><img src=http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_1_20.gif ALT=":whoohoo"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p203.ezboard.com/bherbsdiscussionboard.showUserPublicProfile?gid=monkeyweather@herbsdiscussionboard>monkeyweather</A> at: 7/4/05 10:57 pm<br></i>

Thank you all guys ... Yesterday while I was walking back home from work and thinking suddenly something came to my mind. For years I've been struggling to defeat or push aways this things but this came to my mind: "Not by power, not by might, but by MY Spirit says the Lord".<br>
<br>
It was a song, and I realized I have been doing the wrong fight, when the fight is his. <p></p><i></i>

Habitual sin...who has not/does not struggle with something...many things?<br>
<br>
Please do not think I am condoning or looking away, I am not; however, in the end, in the begining, and in the middle...it is all about the Perfect Blood.<br>
<br>
The Lover of our souls knew everything we would do and not do for his glory when he gave us his life on the cross.<br>
<br>
Please do not take this as a license to sin, instead I hope these words will help further convice you that God's love is eternal, his Sacrifice is infinite, and all things were made by his hand.<br>
<br>
What then can snatch you from him? What can separate you from the Lover of your soul?<br>
<br>
There is only one thing that can do this...his name is Jesus, and to believe that is his will is utter madness.<br>
<br>
He loved us first. He suffered for all of your sins before he knitted you together in the womb.<br>
<br>
Do not despair! Rejoice! This is the day the Lord has made! Who can prevail against our Master? Who can stand against our Savior? He is, was, and always will be! He is the great I AM!<br>
<br>
The flesh is weak. His disciples slept away the hours before his arrest...after he had asked them to stay awake and pray.<br>
<br>
One day, my friend...and I think it will be within the next decade...we will be freed from the flesh as we soar across the sky with our Master to the paradise he has prepared for us.<br>
<br>
I know that it is difficult for us, being trapped in this mortal world, to see beyond our temporary cage.<br>
<br>
Every star in the sky will one day burn out, but we will live on with no end in our Lord's presence.<br>
<br>
When you sin, confess it to Jesus. Share it with a saved friend if it helps you.<br>
<br>
The very next thing you need to do is wave the Reciept over your head for the enemy to see! Your sin was forgiven before you commited it! Your penalty was paid before you broke the law!<br>
<br>
DO NOT LET THE ENEMY BIND YOU IN CHAINS THAT ARE MEANT FOR PRISONERS, FOR YOU ARE FREE BY OUR LORD'S DECREE! <p></p><i></i>

You have my prayers! I admire your determination to do whatever it takes to return to the Lord. PRAISE G-d! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :whoohoo --><img src=http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_1_20.gif ALT=":whoohoo"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
<br>
I know just the person to share some encouragement with you and to give you some practical and solid advice. He will be emailing you in the next day or two. <br>
<br>
G-d does heal us. Unfortunately, we do have to suffer the consequences of our choices. But He gives us all the grace that we need and holds our hand all the way. <br>
<br>
Hold on tight to Jesus no matter where you are at. Even in your sin, invite Him in. Hang on, He is answering your prayers!<br>
<br>
Servant of Christ,<br>

Once we come to understand that the Gospel is about what Jesus accomplished and promised, and not about us, the peace that surpasses understanding embraces us.<br>
<br>
Our God is an awesome God!<br>
