5. WORD! I found it really helpful to read through the New Testament when I was struggling. And not just reading for reading's sake, but asking the Holy Spirit to allow the words to come alive in my heart and mind as I read them.

Again, it becomes very difficult to choose poor behaviors when you have chapter after chapter, verse after verse challenging you, giving you step-by-step encouragement and promptings on how to live well, abundantly.

6. DITCH THE GUILT. I don't believe that shame and guilt are good motivators toward effective change. I believe instead that they lead to condemnation.
But when we fix our eyes on Jesus, turn them toward Him, just like the old hymn says, the things of this world grow strangely dim in the light of His Glory and Grace! Glory and Grace--not condemnation and disapproval.

In the 2012 film, Father of Lights directed by Darren Wilson, there is a brief interview with Banning Liebscher of Jesus Culture where he says:

"....there's a generation that is experiencing more options than any generation in all of history.
So the tendency to materialism or distraction, is so available....ability, instant access to entertainment and social networks and internet and travel. There are so many options and choices in this generation. What excites me is that choices are powerful in the midst of options, not in the midst of no options.
And I think we're going to see the most powerful generation the world has ever seen come out of an environment that gives them options, and a generation is going to rise that their 'Yes' in their spirit will be so loud, it will drown out everything else."

His words immediately resonated in my spirit; they told my story.

For me, Liebscher's words were more than a prophetic declaration; they were a testimony of what was and is already taking place, for this is exactly what had happened to me during my journey. The 'YES' to God in my spirit became louder than any 'NO' I would ever have to speak to the world.

That had been my revelation. That "YES" had been my key.

Let me finish by saying, there is hope. There is freedom. There is a light that shines bright in the darkest of places.

There is love, one who is Love itself, waiting to enrapture you and lead you in grace.

He who is Love is able to transform you by the renewing of you mind.

Did you catch that? He is not just able but willing to clear away the garbage in your mind, erasing the memory of all destructive and tempting images, and renew it to its created design! Ponder that!

May this be your testimony, because what He has done for one, He will surely do for another.
