I laughed when I read this. I mean I was tickled. I read the last two posts n then I started from the top. @Gabe.G you kill me lol. A lot of times we say,or rather I’ve heard it said,that when you pray you’re supposed to talk to God like you talk to a friend. So as I read your post Gabe,I just smiled,cuz you did just that:spoke to God like a friend (although I can’t say I’ve cursed while talking to Him,I understand the realness).
@Josh you’re not the first to realize that in addition to your main addiction, you’re also addicted to porn/masturbation. I won’t call any names but there are some of us struggling with multiple things. If you’d like though I could tag you in some forums that could be helpful,cuz that’s up my alley.
@Rosey loved what you said about getting to know God for yourself and especially the part about realizing He’s more amazing than you realized growing up. I’ve often found myself being jealous of people who didn’t grow up in church. I say that because some of the experiences I’ve heard of how powerful He is and how He changed them is so awesome to me,and I want an awesome story too lol. But real talk. He’s working on me,and my experience can help someone else. And you don’t have to worry about church (don’t get me wrong,I love my church family). Start off just talking to Him @Josh or anyone else,and as you get to know Him better He’ll lead you to where He wants you to be. The interesting thing about the book you’re reading is that although it’s not the Bible, it’s mimicking many biblical themes/thoughts from what I’ve noticed so far;that tickled me to because our world is full of so many people bashing the Bible,yet many books teach biblical messages that help us live better lives.
