A desire for the physical pleasures of this world can be so corrosive. It has hurt me deeply at times in my life. It has been so damaging that I have noticed it and my response to it. This is the first step. I ask for forgiveness. I seek the strength in Jesus to stay away from these inner temptations. I must surrender to Jesus and His saving Grace. I will fail. I will seek forgiveness. I will learn from my failures and seek to review my commitment to life and hope and joy!
