seven year anniversary

today i celebrate seven years of abstinence. it includes, but is not limited to masturbation, sexual images, chocolate and added sugar. it also has a spiritual element in every night before bed i read the 'next' portion of the bible. i don't know that i've ever not done, and done anything for seven years straight before.

one day at a time linked together can truly make a difference. so just for today i am choosing to continue a constant contact with god, refrain from self stimulation and not withdraw into the world of craziness chocolate and added sugar brings to my life. just for today.

looking back at who i was seven years ago today i can hardly recognize myself. it seems like another life time ago.

You continue to be an inspiration to me....that linking a string of days together can bring not only relief but life, real life, to a person.

Congratulations on your seven year anniversary!! You give me hope.

Today i struggle on... battling to remain pure. I daren't even look back to see how long it's been... i haven't the strength right now to look back and be ok, all i can do right now is keep looking straight in front of me and by the grace of God, one day at a time continue to "throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles" and to "run with perseverance the race marked out for us" and to keep fixing my "eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith." Heb 12:1-2

Thank you for the encouragement "one day at a time linked together can truly make a difference."
