The Flesh is Weak

Satan attempts to cut us off from the Heavenly Father by the same temptations, lust, greed, envy, being rude and a multitude of sins we get caught up in. We know our flesh is weak.

Satan works like an eskimo killing a wolf: An eskimo will put blood on a knife and freeze it, they repeat this process, until the knife has layers of frozen blood.
The wolf comes upon the knife and licks it, and is overtaken by his hungerous desires that he doesn't realize his tongue is being sliced, until his tongue is actually cut off:fact.

How many can relate to how our sinful nature, desires so of the world, we swirl and twirl, not realizing how far we have fallen into sin until it's too late..

There is hope through Our Risen Savior Jesus Christ.

Don't be cut off.......

Inspired by a sermon I heard once.

    For all of us fall short of the Glory of God! For we all face temptations every day but it is for us to chose to make the right choice due to the consequences we have to face eventually! For if we continually keep the precepts of HIS word in our hearts and mind it will be easier to make the right choices. Simmplissity

    If there is deep caring, lust is never sinful.

    I don't think real sex is ever casual....unless it has no meaning. Your thoughts are intriguing. I appreciate you, too. Remember that while I am frequently lustful, it can be fulfilled only by real devotion. Without that, I do agree, it is meaningless. I like when you present challenges to thinking. Then it is that you need not repent.

    Perhaps as a wife pleasing her husband it is not but I have a different view on casual sex and such. Most men believe as you do, I just got out of somewhat a relations, and once I said that I didn't want those relations/ sex any longer because I spent much more time in repentance than we were together. I tend to try to not be free with my body. It was the way I was raised up in the hills. take good care, and know that I appreciate YOU.

    "he doesn't realize his tongue is being sliced"... is this is a true fact? Clever! Big hugs, Jack xox

    Yes Jack. The Eskimo kill wolves like this. Cindy (sorry for my delayed response. I'm not here much. Too many oars in the water so to speak, much thanks for your continued support of my poetry :)
