Hey guys. I'm struggling with masturbation again. Starting to make me depressed. I was clean for 5 months and then I started breaking in December. Now it's becoming a habit. Super disappointed in myself. I feel like I hear God telling me not to do it but then I do it anyway.

Please, please, please pray that I gain the strength to resist temptation. I'm trying to obey 1 Cor 10:13 but I just keep failing.

Sometimes it takes a sermon or a word of prophecy or a verse
to hit home that when we sin we are putting Jesus to shame
and trashing his sacrifice for us.

Sin never goes away. Temptations entice.
But ya gotta love Jesus and want to do what's right by him.
If you keep on doing a sin and not overcoming then you do not value
who Jesus is and what he did for you and for me.

Remember he took the lash 39 times on his back, and they drove nails
through his hands and feet.
He did that for you and me.

Do you listen to gospel music?
Do you read your Bible?
Do you watch Christian movies and other stories?
Do you get encouraged to walk the walk?
Do you pray in the Spirit?

The flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit fights against
the flesh.
Feed the Spirit, strengthen the inner man.

Hey bros just wanna say that I'm super blessed you responded. It means a lot to me when someone notices one of my posts. It's just a weird time in my life. I want to get married but I don't live a stable life. I know I'm supposed to wait for a girl to marry but I'm just so lonely.

I'm getting help from a Christian website that helps people with this problem. I will pray to God for a better relationship with him. Just super depressed, have been for a long time. What you say means a lot! Thank you for seeing and replying to my post. Lord bless you!

I am saying a prayer for God to allow you to focus on Him instead of trying to constantly pushing thoughts of temptation out of your mind. I have also said a prayer for God to end your loneliness. Don't feel too bad, this type of addiction is quite common and one day you will be delivered from it. I understand about depression full well and want you to know that you're not alone with this. May the Lord bless you as well.

Terry Crews has some videos on YouTube about his porn addiction and what he did to overcome it.

I actually remember him speaking about this very thing on an interview I was watching awhile back. I'll look more into this. Appreciate it Tommy!
