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!
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
