 I feel horrible.

Over the past week or two, I've felt horrible. It feels like my brothers and sisters in Christ don't really care anymore.
It feels like I have failed God so badly. I've just failed.
I have fell into this sin (porn) over 30 times in the past 2 months. 30+! This is ridiculous. I want out! I want it gone. I even had the AUDACITY to ask God for forgiveness every time I did it (sometimes multiple times a day) I've been without it for a few days now, but I still feel lonely, cold and unwanted.

Loneliness has always been something I've struggled with, but this is horrible.

Before this happened I had (what felt like) a wilderness experience, then for about a week I felt so joyous. Now, for the past couple weeks I have felt horrible. Absolutely horrible, and rightfully so.

Is there any hope left for me? I feel BAD. Over these past couple weeks I have ran to worldly pleasures (video games and videos) and humor because of how horrible I feel.

Can anybody give me any help; encouragement?

Godbless you all; this has been tough.

 Re: I feel horrible.

Key,
This is what was dropped into my Spirit for you.

James4:6-10,

¶ But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

7 ¶ SUBMIT yourselves unto God ..(The mighty Spirit Word). 'RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.

8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

(And l.I might add: CRY OUT TO GOD,!... ..He desires to help us ...He will help..)

kindness / offering,

------------------🙏

Praying for you, Key.

If you fall down, just fall down again at the mercy and grace found at the feet of the Lord.

Remember: He knows you better than you know yourself. He knows your strengths, weaknesses and struggles.

He is here -- always waiting to fellowship with you.

 Re: I feel horrible.

1) Prayer begins with intimacy, we come to Him not just in times of trial but just because we want to be with Him. Same thing with reading the Bible. This is what it means to call on the name of the Lord. This results in being...

2) Conformed to his character. We don't just say the name of Jesus like it's a magic phrase, praying in the name of Jesus means praying according to His character and will. John 14:13-15 - that the Father might be glorified. 1Jn 3:2 - fully conformed.

Now the great lie of the enemy will be that if you aren't fully conformed to His image you should just stay away. The Bible is exactly the opposite, we are to come into His presence with brokenness and thanksgiving. If you choose to trust God even though you are going through great temptations, God will save.

Don't let Satan lie to you that you must first get it right before you come to God. Don't elevate your faults over the cross. Don't make a bunch of promises that you'll do better but trust in His promises, appropriate them. This leads to...

3) The fear of the Lord. This is to be afraid of hurting Him not being afraid of Him hurting us. We don't have to come to Him with a bunch of promises that we'll do better. Exodus 34:5-7

The Lord rebuke you.. God is our defender. Brokenness is good, godly repentance is good, but let it bring you to Him and to rejoice in His embrace, there will be strength over temptation. Temptations will always be there but victory is in Him. Don't let the enemy make you think that you should be over this temptation.

In Christ,

 Re:


Make no allowance for the flesh. Meaning restrict the internet at least for a time. Find counselling as I suggested like illbehonest.com and find local accountability with a minister or some godly person.

May God bless you in turning you from your sins. Acts 3:26

 Re:

Pastors at a church I used to attend had pictures of Jesus attached to the computer screens or messages such as “I will not go there.”

If you are using your phone it is not as easy to do this but as Greg suggested you are going to have to “cut off your hand” or “gouge out your eye”- — not literally but you may have to make it impossible to indulge in this sin until you can break the habit.

 Re: For Key

Hey Key,

My heart goes out to you because I know you sincerely want to break free from your addiction but you find it hard since it is on "autopilot" due to repeated giving in to craving triggers. Your brain has laid down neuronal "tracks" that get deeper as you continue in the addictive cycles. I don't have easy or painless answers for you. But today I want to share with you that there is something underneath your habit that causes you to act out this way for relief. I would say that all addictions are a coping mechanism to deal with difficult emotions from being wounded or rejected earlier in life. You need to have compassion on yourself for having this problem and stop beating yourself up. I am not saying to give up and give in. I am saying take responsibility and deal with your core issue of inner woundedness and rejection. Pray that Jesus would reveal to you where the wound comes from and pray for healing of that wound. It will take time. Also know that your way of handling the situation is sin, specifically the sin of IDOLATRY. You probably acted out of ignorance or deception but still, it is pure poison to you having a good relationship with God. Peter says it wages war on our souls. Humble yourself and repent in a long, hard, slow and deliberate manner before God admitting that you chose to worship and obey a false god instead of the one and true Living God. Don't try and gin-up emotions over this; if they come naturally, fine and good. God is more interested in your sincerity than emotions.

Watch this short video. It talks about the roots of addiction:

This book might also help. It is by a Christian author:

https://www.amazon.com/Exposing-Rejection-Mindset-Relationship-Struggles/dp/1499511086/

I will be praying for you my brother,

-Daniel
