Overcome Porn with Joy; Gratitude Is an Empowering Emotion

As I read through all the Psalms and Proverbs of the day that I scheduled, gratitude empowered me to resist pornography.

An interesting note, when I had a strong urge to view pornography, I would read out of the Psalms or Proverbs or one of the Gospels to resist it.  The cravings left me.

To this day, I know that the scriptures enveloped me with a shield reflecting total submission to porn. I had hope.   God corrected me for my misdeeds; however, he guided me to freedom. I shouted for joy!

Gratitude(Beattie, 2015)

Psalm 98: 1 – 9

Marvelous new song

His Right Arm brings salvation

To God, shout for joy

The harp and new music sings

Trumpet and ram’s horn blast joy

Thanks,

Dale Criswell
