Temptations...


What is our choice going to be?... 

We are confronted daily with many situations calling for us to make a choice. 


What roads to take to get to our destination, what to eat, what to wear, how to respond to questions, and so on. Most of the time we know the choice to make based on our experience and knowledge, so it does not require much thought or extra effort on our part. 


But what about those times when we must make a choice between what’s in our head verses what’s in our heart? You know, those times when temptation of the moment attempts to entice you into going against what you know to be right. 


In my case, the temptation to gorge myself on food I should not be eating caused me to make some major life changes almost 3 years ago. 


These are the choices that require changes in thinking, actions to make the needed changes, willingness to see it through, and help from the Holy Spirit living within us. 


How are you dealing with those times?.. Remember, isolation only fuels the temptation


Check your experience… 


“If tempted, we recoil from it as from a hot flame.” Big Book pg 84 

Lord, let us look temptation square in the eye and know that You will show us the way around it and away from it, AMEN. 

"The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure." 1 Corinthians 10:13 

Have a blessed day y’all
