Break Pornography’s Hold; Weep before God….

So now you have to choose between an emotional hell or miraculous freedoms.

Drift yourself back through time to when you were free from pornography.

How was your life?

What was your focus?

Did you have dreams of something more?

“You are my refuge.”

Weep unto the Lord

Porn has snared a person’s soul

Break down before God

Lift up the voice to mercy

Crying, “You are my refuge.”

O God, My Strength and Hope

Do Not Be Fooled; Pornography Persecutes the Soul.

Meditation

Psalm 142

Pornography: The Top Three Lessons from the Loss of Porn Addiction

Grief may be joy misunderstood;

Only the Good discerns the good.

–Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Have you noticed yet that giving up your porn addiction you felt a loss?

I remembered a time when I deleted all porn sites from my favorites’ list.

The feelings were similar to grieving for a dead friend, especially, one that comforted me whenever I needed it.  From time to time I shed tears.

The only problem was that when I buried my friend, he was still alive.  I didn’t even lock him in a coffin and vault. He resurrected back into my life.

I went through 40 years of mixed feelings for pornography; dying and living.

In 2014, I was able to stay sober the entire year with only two minor slips (measured in seconds).

Now, I have a new friend, freedom.

From time to time, I shed tears for this feeling.

Three Lessons of Losing an Addiction (a Haiku Poem)

Grieve the loss of porn;

Resurrecting it once more;

Grief joy understood.

Psalm 20:1, 2

The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; (King James Version, public domain)
