What Do You Believe About the Meaning of Life?

What if you were a plant, what would you be?

Why not flowers?  They are so beautiful.

As you sink deeper and deeper into the meaning of the following poem, you may discover purpose; an escape from porn addiction.


Death. Life.

Few days; much trouble

Flowers withering away

Like fleeting shadows

At least, trees have hope; cut down

Stump dies; scent of water; buds

 Jot down the poem on scrap paper and look at it throughout the day.

Ponder the words of hope.


Job 14:1 – 14

Thank you,

Peace Offers a Host of High Energy Emotions.

What does pornography offer you?

Long-term emotions, what Low Energy Emotions Does  pornography deluge you?

Proverbs 14:30  New International Version (NIV)

30 A heart at peace gives life to the body,
    but envy rots the bones.

Peace comes to those who find recovery from addiction.

Sexual cravings

Porn addict’s appetite

Pleasure draws him to

Hunger drives him on

His appetite works for him

Satisfaction rules

 Unsatisfied need

His desire longs for pleasure

Pain fills his being

He yearns after peace

God satisfies his longing

He finds liberty


Proverbs 16:26

26 He that laboureth,

laboureth for himself;

for his mouth craveth it of him.



Porn Addict: Finding the Present Moment

Experiencing God is like sleep;

Feeding Pornography: STOP and Ask Yourself The Following Question…?

Why am I feeling so frustrated?

I wrote goals.

I plotted a strategy.

I implement an action plan.

However, what was missing? … life purpose.

Not having meaning, frustration fed my pornography addiction.

I asked God to shape the direction of my heart.

” A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps”            (Proverbs, 16:9, KJV).
