What Happens When We Fall?

I know it's been a while since I posted...not much is going on in my world so I haven't been terribly inspired lately.  In some ways that is a good thing, the quiet has been nice for a change.  It's funny how you can get used to chaos and almost not know what to do with yourself when your world isn't full of it. 

I consider the quiet a serious indication that deliverance is mine.  I don't quite look at sex the same way and don't think about it much any more.  The longer I go without it the easier it gets.... until of course hormones kick in... but even then....... I don't focus on the need to satisfy the desire as much as I do now manage it via exercise and other things to occupy my thoughts.  That is the reason I suggested that you not ask God to take away the desire, but show you how to "MANAGE" it. 

The key to your deliverance is the REVELATION.   This happens at different times for everyone.  You can hear the same scripture over and over again and not get the true revelation of how it applies to your life and how much it can change your life.  The scripture for example  "your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.  Heard it it often.. but I didn't really GET (live it) it until about 2 years ago.

What happens when we FALL.?  When we fall into sin...... it causes a separation between us and God.  The Holy Spirit dwells within us and so when we commit such a sin as sex... it vexes the Holy Spirit and causes Him to leave our presence.  God is Holy and will not be in the midst of sin, and since the HOLY SPIRIT is the Spirit of God... it stands to reason... he's gonna be out of there while your doing your thing.  Thing is He kinda stays away for a while until He thinks it's safe to come back.  I know it sounds funny the way I'm describing it.... but this is an analogy that I think is super simple to understand.

It's not until you sense, feel & understand the separation from God that we are prompted to repent.  

Why must it take us so long though?

What I do know is that when we fall God is waiting for us to recover with open arms.  He desires healing wholeness and holiness.

When we fall down, we get back up again.. dust it off and keep on moving.  You can do this family.  If I can do it I know you can

Just Keepin It Real

If I'm keepin it real, it hasn't been an easy journey.... not even a desired one for me accept that I desire to please God more then I desire to please my flesh.  Eventually I hope to be married and have sex as much as possible  LOL....  I am proud of myself to small degree for my ability to abstain, since I could have sex at any given time if i so desire.... but thank God for self control. 

I have been tempted on many occasions, I'm even tempted now, and have tempted someone else....   but eventually I come to my senses.  ****whew!  thank God!

Again it is not for any other reason but to respect the spirit of God that dwells within and to keep the commands of God.  Much easier said then done.. but i'm fighting the good fight. 

The schmeckle is calling often and I have to remind myself that the current momentary satisfaction will never lead to the desired end if i give in to the temptation.

So are you tempted right now?
