Anonymous asked: I know this is a repeatedly asked question. Im addicted to pornography and masturbation and every time i do this i feel so remorseful and guilty so i ask god for his forgiveness and mercy but the problem is i keep on repeating this sin over and over even though i tell myself i shouldnt do it again. HELP : desperate 15 year old guy.
You know friend, The hardest part is admitting your sin.
Masturbation is lust based. And lust is a very heavy spirit that is attacking many people across the earth. But the good news is that it’s not something that can’t be overcome with God’s help.
Jesus said that if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. For it’s better to enter eternal life with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell. (Matthew 18:9) Now I know that sounds pretty violent but what He point He was trying to get across is that if you’re dealing with something that is keeping you from God (masturbation) and because it’s building a spiritual distance between you and God, you need to get up and DEAL WITH IT VIOLENTLY. You need to tell the enemy, “I don’t care what you say or what you’re tempting me to do but I’m not going to do it! I REFUSE TO FALL INTO THIS SIN AGAIN AND I WON’T FALL INTO THIS SIN AGAIN ‘CAUSE JESUS IS WITH ME AND WHILE I MAY BE WEAK, HE IS STRONG. AND GOD WILL PROVE STRONG IN MY WEAKNESS. CASE AND POINT.”
And begin reading your Bible more. God’s word is your sword against all demons and all temptations and all evil things (Psalms & Proverbs). And above all things. Ask God to help you. I have no doubt that what you’re going through has already been overcome, but you need to just believe it and start working hard for it. Ask God to guide you and to help you get closer to Him at a full surrender. And when you do that, you’ll see you got a stronger side over any type of lust.
God knows your heart. We’ll be keeping you in prayer for strength, kid.
I feel like we get caught up, so caught up in what’s happened or so focused on what’s gonna happen that we can miss the very moment that we’re in.
And my prayer today is that none of miss this moment ‘cause I believe that God is here and I believe that He wants to do something in your life today.
hhaha. You know. There’s so much to say about God. but you know, the thing that I love most, is that our God is the one who holds the universe.
He holds every single one of us and yet, He’s so intricately interested in every single one of our lives. He doesn’t look down and see a crowd on the earth. A million or a billion, He doesn’t see a crowd.. He sees you.
And He knows you and He cares about you.
He knows your burdens, He knows your fears, He knows your troubles, He knows your dreams, He knows your desires.. He knows you and He loves you.
And I think about the fact that the reason we can have this moment. The reason we can come so freely into His presence and this moment is all because of a moment that took place two thousand odd years ago.
When God, the God of the universe. Seeing us, knowing us. Knowing that we would fail Him time and time again. Knowing that we would make a mess of things, still loved us enough in advanced to give what was dearest to Him, His Son Jesus, to step down into this broken world of ours and to live a perfect life. To live a perfect life and to die as a perfect sacrifice to perfect some very imperfect people.
And the bible says, the bible says that in that moment, He did everything that He needed to be done for everyone.
And that is good news today for me and that is good news for you.
We think, maybe God feels distant or you don’t feel good enough for God, but I want you to hear this.
None of us are good enough. That’s why we all need Jesus.
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, It doesn’t mater what you’ve been through, It doesn’t matter what’s happened to you… He loves you. When He died upon that cross, it was as much for you as it was for anybody.
But I pray that you don’t miss what God wants to do in your life. God forgives you, but I feel like you need to forgive yourself. And that might be the hardest part yet, but I whole heartedly believe that with God, you can find strength to do that.
Honestly, I don’t think that leaving and moving in with influential “friends” is a very good idea. I think in the long run, you’ll only end up on a harder path facing harder trials other than the ones you’re facing now.
Truth is, God loves you. He’s your Dad and King. And His promise to us is that He’ll be with us and to that till the very end of the age. But like any good parent, He wants to help His children walk in the right direction. But it’s because we’re so stubborn most of the times that God let’s us walk till we fall into a deep pit so that we can be completely broken and realize that we need Him.
Friend, we’re not religious people and God isn’t for religion, He actually hates it.
But we’ve come to understand that believing in something means giving it your all. Jesus came to perfect the imperfect in us so that God might be able to have a relationship with us.
But in order for that to happen, you have to open up your heart and ask God to give you the strength to forgive yourself. And then ask God to help you stand strong for Him. Invite Him to invade your heart and to guide your paths and thoughts. Start reading His word and get to know God intimately in the spirit. But don’t just focus on one verse, read His word all the way through. I highly recommend 1 Year Daily Audio Bible.
It’s a pretty stellar podcast that goes through the entire bible, and I believe that it’ll change your life forever.
Nobody is perfect. But I know that God will prove strong in each of our lives if we just so let Him. And you’re never alone. Although you might not be able to see Him, God is with you and He’s watching over you because He loves you dearly.
And within time, God will bring the right people into your life. But you just need to stay patient and rest in Him.
Ask God to transform your heart and ask Him to help you forgive and love your family in the same way that He forgives and loves you.
The best is yet to come.
Be safe and stay blessed, kid.
“But forget all that— ‘cause it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43.18-19
Anonymous asked: Let’s say you have a friend who continuously makes bad decisions. You talk to them about it all the time and try to give them advice, and you let them know that only God can change them, but they keep doing the same things, knowing that it’s wrong. All the while, you’re getting a burden for this person but they keep making these wrong choices over and over, and you’re getting no where with them. At what point do you step back? Because it’s hurting you but they’re not taking your advice…
You’ve done exactly what God wants you to do. If you see someone that’s wanting to make the wrong the choice/bad decision what God would want you to do is correct them (Judge with righteous judgment - John 7:24).
But something I want you to know is that even if you tell people that what they’re doing is wrong not all the time are they going to listen to you. BUT Don’t let that get you down though. God knows your heart and He knows you tried to get through to that person to get them to have a change of heart but they’re the ones who chose to not want to.
Now, if that person does not want to stop then it’s time to let it go and just give it all to God. Keep that person in your prayers and just sit back, relax and watch God begin working in their lives.
Anonymous asked: help me please!! some guy is telling me that I should I lose my virginity bc there's nothing wrong with it and I'm missing out on pleasure. when I tell him I don't want to bc of religion he starts saying that God will forgive me and I should just live a little. also that I wouldn't regret it if I did it with someone special. I need help defending myself, ideas?!?!
That kid doesn’t know what he’s talking about. From the little that you’ve told me about him, I see that:
- He really doesn’t care about God or his relationship with Jesus. He also lets himself be used by the enemy.
- He doesn’t care about you or other people.
- And finally, He definitely does not care about himself nor does He truly value his life/salvation.
“Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” John 14:21
“Stay on the path that the LORD your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.” Deuteronomy 5:33
“And to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:27
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8
“Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” Matthew 16:33
You are the church. The church isn’t building, it’s you. And God is coming back to look for a church that stands in purity. You need to put your armor on, cover yourself with the blood of Christ Jesus and pray for a liberation for those who are used by the enemy.
In the end, this guy that’s talking to you.. he can’t save you. Only Jesus can.
So, who are you going to listen to?
Anonymous asked: I have a question, but it might sound silly! How do you pray?! Like, before you go to sleep? I mean do you just say a couple of the prayers we've been taught? (Our Father, Hail Mary,etc.) Or do you just have a conversation with God?
I believe that originality is always thee best way to do eet. I’m not saying it’s wrong to recite a prayer, I just feel prayer means more when it comes from your heart in your own words.
Before I go to sleep I just have a stellar conversation with the Big Guy Upstairs. I usually begin with thanking Him for giving me another day to live and thanking Him for watching over me. I pray for my family, my friends, my school mates, you guys on the webs, and for Gods will to be done. I usually end my prayer by telling God I love Him and asking God to watch over me whilst I sleep.
:] :O :]
But my best advice for night time prayers is this:
“When you pray to God just let your heart do the talking.”
Anonymous asked: Thank you, I was the one who asked about the smut thingy. Please pray for us. You see I serve God in my local church by playing guitar, and every time Im insecure because I kept sinning about these smuts. I feel like Im not worthy to serve Him. And please pray for my friends too. 90% of their blogs consists of nothing but gay porn. I tried explaining it but they wont listen. I will try my best to stop reading smuts for God I wont just try, I will. Please pray for me and my friends. God bless!
Want advice? read psalm 53.
and find out what real repentance is.
once you find out, your life will never be the same. God will not only manifest but give you blessings beyond belief!
Trust in God, Give Him your ALL!
and you’ll see that you will be the light and difference from others in the world!
God bless you and we will keep this in prayer!!!
Anonymous asked: I found out my dad watches porn. I was flipping through his ipod touch once and saw it, and have seen it several times since. I doubt my mom knows, but I don't know what to do about it. I put up a network-wide filter which should hopefully stop it at home, but I don't know if I can do anything else besides pray. Any suggestions?
Prayer is definitely key in this situation. Pray for your dad and ask God to touch your dads heart and to open up his eyes to what he is really doing, which is harming his relationship with his wife (I’m more then sure that your dad doesn’t want to do this). Something you might want to do is talk to your dad about it, if you feel uncomfortable doing this, then just sit down and talk to your mom about it, tell her your feelings about the situation and let her handle it or ask your mom if you can confront your dad about it with her.
Whatever it is you do, just make sure you pray before you confront your dad and just keep your dad in prayer and trust God.

Anonymous asked: Do you have any tips on remembering to read your Bible everyday? Thanks, God bless BHFJ, love your blog! :)
I’ll give you 3 of my rockin’ never failing “remembering to read you’re bible” tips.
Tip numero uno. “The Eye Catching Note”
Here’s what you got to do. Leave a note that you know for sure will catch your attention. Make your note green, blue, yellow any eye
pooping popping color.
Leave this note somewhere you always go like on your computer desk or laptop, your bedroom door, the bathroom mirror have fun and write it HUGELY in expo marker, or the refrigerator (i like to eat a lot so that’s where I put my note). saying ”Hey, punk remember to read you’re bible!” just something that’ll make you laugh. I tend to remember things that make me laugh. (=
Tip numero dos. “The Holy Pillow”
Take out that comfy pillow from out of your pillow case and replace it with the bible. When you lay down to get some sleep you’ll hit you’re head on not the comfiest of pillows and that’s when you’ll remember to read. Consider yourself holyfied.
Tip numero tres. “The Christian Biffle Caller”
What are best friends for? To help you remember to read your bible! Tell one of your responsible friends to call you at 7:00pm or whenever just to tell you to read your bible. It works! It’s awesome! And you should try it! =)
YOU JUST GOT ADVISED!
Anonymous asked: hey guys! I need help! ASAPI am a youth leader at church, and absolutely live to honor Him and worship Him! Lately, as I have become more and more involved in His word and His path(opened my youth group) I've been having a lot of doubts about God and feel like He doesn't hear me :( I'm even not doing so good at school and wonder why because I always pray to him and take James 1:5 for my tests and all..I don't know what is happening! The I HATE this thoughts!! please pray for me? and help? :(
God doesn’t just hear you, He listens to you.
Satan is pretty sneaky and he tries really hard to make us believe God doesn’t care about us and therefor He doesn’t care to listen to us. But this is all a lie from satan.
Don’t let him deceive you.
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” - Ephesians 6:12
Everyday make sure you put on the armor of God so you can stand firm and fight against him(satan).

enteringfreedom asked: Hi I wanted to ask for prayer but wanted to give some background info and it was just too long to fit in the ask box. Could you go to my page and read my story please? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks <3
I want to start off by apologizing for the Christians of todays generation. It’s not right of them to judge you or anyone so rapidly. That’s not what it’s about. People like to twist the truth. And that’s not right. I think most-times, as Christians, we have good intensions to do and say the right thing.. but we word ourselves wrong.
Nobody is perfect. That’s why we all need Jesus. Amen?
Outrageousspectaculous! Haha. You know, I’m really stoked to hear you accepted Jesus into your life just a few years back! *virtual high five* to you! Haha. That is literally the BEST decision you or anyone could ever make.
Accepting Jesus into your life —> #mostsuperduperdecision..ever
My advice to you would be to keep those people in prayer.
Pray for the people who have have hurt you and wounded your heart.
John 8:32 tell us: “know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
The truth is, you need to forgive everyone who has hurt you. And even the ones who continue to do so.
Matthew 6 tells us that we need to forgive. It’s important to do so because if we don’t.. God, our Father in heaven, won’t forgive us.
- When we don’t forgive people, we fall into a spiritual prison cell captivity.
- When people don’t forgive us, they put us into a spiritual prison cell captivity.
Either way, not forgiving puts a person at spiritual pause.
I encourage you today to forgive those people. It’s not easy, I know.. but open up your heart.
Remember, Jesus was hated first. “and if the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” Matthew 15
You were made in His image. [Genesis 1] You are very lovely. You matter and you are worth so much more than you could ever know or think!
God tells us in His word that we need to edify ourselves and our actions. We need to grow spiritually daily. We want to give our very best! I do recommend you read your bible as much as you can! Sleep is very important, but if you get the chance to stay up at least even twice a week for 5 min.. that’s good start. People stay up reading secular books, watching movies, chatting on the internet, doing school work.. why can’t you stay up reading what is going strengthen your life and help you grow spiritually!?
Haha The Bible is like the battery juice to your light saber! It’s the sword of the spirit, and if you know your word, you will conquer always. Also, it’s very important to put on God’s armor [Ephesians] day in and day out. Especially before going to bed. That’s when the enemy attacks us most.
it’s the WAR AGAINST SATAN. Our armor gets worn down (we’re in a spiritual warfare). Put it on.
Friend… our prayer for you is that you would renew your relationship with God so that He could renew your heart. And above all, so that you would come to know Jesus for who He really is.
And doing this is a simple and powerful as saying a prayer…
Dear Lord Jesus,
I come to You today and confess that I need You… Please come into my heart again..Jesus.. Be my Lord and Saviour… Wash me… Cleanse me.. And forgive me of all my sins. Today, I choose to forgive those who have wronged me and hurt me. Those who have offended me and judged me. And in the same way, I ask for forgiveness to those I have wronged, judged or offended.
Thank You for giving me a brand new start… Today I open my life to you.. I am now a child of the King!
And I put my whole trust in You. Edify, mold and transform my heart and my life daily.
Thank You Jesus. I love You Lord!
stay safe friend. And God bless you! I hope to hear from you soon to see how God is working in YOUR life. Believe the best for your future. He’s got HUGE plans for you! :D
