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

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.

Fear God in deep wonderment.

Loathe God and His Graciousness;

If I Love Porn, I hate God.

Pornography: The Prayer of a Porn Addict; Revealing Secrets

After you read this short post, you will feel God’s decency.

First and foremost, we set our sights on God’s goodwill and decency, and our self-rule rewards us with goodness that gives freedom from pornography addiction.

A prayer of a porn addict:

If I accept His statutes and store them in my heart, and if I listen for wisdom and apply my intelligence to understand, and if I hunger for insight on how to stop porn cravings and pray aloud for comprehension, and if I look for answers as for  hidden treasure gold and silver, I then am aware of a deeply felt reverence for God and His kingdom.  Awareness guides me to healing.

God’s goodness, freedom

How to stop pornography

Reverence for God

—D. R. Criswell

Meditation

Proverbs 2: 1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. (King James Version, public domain)

Thanks,

Dale
