The challenge of being a Christian is the temptations we face every day. Resisting temptation is a very important part of every Christian’s life. Christian temptation is different from any other kind, but we CAN be tested and we WILL resist temptation. It’s never easy, but Christians have the inner strength to do so if we turn to God.

I face struggle daily… Men, Money, Drugs, Lying, Manipulation, Theft… the list goes on and on… After all… I am a reformed “Bad Girl”. It was so bad I may have learned a thing or two from Delilah… and perhaps passed something on! Part of knowing this about myself once made going on to do the right thing very hard considering my past was a part of bondage from me I couldn’t escape… I once thought.. yeah… I am Never going to get this right… so why try?.. Um WRONG! the key word is REFORMED!!!! I am reborn… saved and sanctified, a child of God and an heir to the kingdom of heaven! and as long as I remember that and seek His face.. I know all things are possible, even a successful transition to a victorious Christian Life!

Even though something sinful in your life might sound good, take some time to reflect on this statement: if today was the last day of your life, what would you want to do? Would you fill your day with sinful experiences, or would you be close to the ones you love? Would you share your love and your compassion? I think we all know the answer to this. So every day, just remember what is TRULY important to you and to God.
