Good morning people of God My name is lordson and I don't know what ease to do. I'm maturbating daily.... and tis pull me far away from God. On sunday service I've guilt in me that I cant pray or even woship God from my inner mind. Tis started 18 years ago. I'm tired and weak of tis. I want to be bold to talk to God directly. Each day i decide not to do tis, I feel something is missing and later I find myself masturbating. Immediately after masturbating I feel like WHY? NOT AGAIN. I've prayed. I've talk to a close pastor abt tis but after advise I go back to it. What shld I do? Shld I quit my job? Shld I remain in the church for a while? All tis keeps cming to me. What shld I do?

I dont think its completly bad to masturbate but anything that become too much is a sin.. just try and take off ur mind from it.. its really hard tho but focus ur mind on something meaningful .. stuff like dat always occur when u re idea or you have nothin occuping ur time.. simply set up a target nd make sure i works towards it. .. also read ur bible always.. Stay bless

If you are on the right age and have a stable work that can support a family, better to get married. But first have a complete knowledge of faith. Please visit my website and click the picture on it. Request books to deepen your faith, the complete and true. www.remission.weebly.com

brother i can relate towhat you are going through. This is actually the reason why i downloaded this app and just found out that there is a forum where we can share our stories. I too, feel very guilty when i do so. Brother i highly suggest that you divert your energy to something else. like working out, watch movies, hang out with your friends etc. and always pray and thank God for giving you another day to turn away from correct your mistakes. God understands.

Masturbation is wrong as you are a Christian. I believe you can stop if you ask the holy spirit to direct you to stop since our body is the temple of our lord. you must also turn your mind off madturbation and tell yourself I Have Stop Masturbating to Glorify Jesus, everyday say to yourself you are a new creature born of God and you have overcome any power of masturbation. Beloved in Christ you are delivered from this addiction in the name of Jesus. If only you believe.

Don't be so hard to yourself as it is the age when hormones make you do all this. But anything too much takes you away from God. So have faith in Him and ask Him to help you out. And as someone said before, don't get married for this reason. Marriage is not just for sexual desire. It's for longlasting companionship. Marry someone who will help you grow spiritually.

Brother.. Were in thesame situation but all i know is to turn back in that addiction... Do cheerfully worship our God and erase that thing in your mind.. Read the Bible everyday.. Be busy in Gods wants not in nature doing... Dont let the enemy ruin and broke your relationshio with God.. Bcoz the end is nearer.. Brother be serious in worshiping our God.. Dont make shame in him.. So that He will never make shame on you at the End..

I have been down this road as well I still remember the first time I did it, and I know that was the day that spirit entered. I know the guilt feeling as well. I would make excuses why it was ok even tho I knew it was wrong. So I would repent, but like you and then do it again. It got to the point where it became so common I couldn't fight the urge. Then the spirit of God spoke to me Romans 6:1. I realized I was abusing Gods grace. How I stop was by asking God for help, making up my mind to not do it anymore. Every time my flesh began to rise (because that's all it is) I would pray or read Gods word at that moment I was tempted to do it and the urge would go away. Soon resistance came natural and now I don't get that urge anymore. I am a witness that like the bible says "If you resist the devil he will flee from you." Keep in mind the devil may can minipulate your flesh and make suggestions to your mind, but he cannot make you sin that is a choice. Choose not to listen, choose to be stronger than your flesh. I pray this has helped you.

When I think of addiction, I think of substance abuse. I started being prescribed pain killers over 10 years ago. One day my doctor just cut me off cold turkey with no taper down. I got very sick. My body and mind were both screaming in agony. I thought I was going to die. I started going to a clinic to get help. They prescribed me methadone. I've been taking that for about a year now, leaglly, but I feel as if God is tugging at my heart to just stop. I'm very afraid. I've tried that in the past and had no luck. I pray all the time. I once had a very close relationship with God but this medication seems to be blocking my blessings. Either it's the medicine or something else I'm doing. I have a family that I haven't been able to provide for in a while. It tears my heart out to seem them go without. As far as the masturbating goes, I pray that you find resolve. If anyone knows where I am coming from and has any advice for someone in my situation, I'm all ears. Thank you and God bless.

i faced the same problem i cried out and sincerely prayed with all my heart time and time again, but messed up each and everytime. i knew it was a sin, i was sinning against God and defilling Gods temple and drawing myself away from God. i realised that i was in direct violation of the word of God by being disobedient n not having faith n trusting God. i decided to fully trust and have faith in God after several failed attemps because i was so used to it it was a habit i found difficult to break. i lifted everything to God n confessed that i wasnt weak but being lazy. n now whenever the feeling wants to creep up i rebuke the spirit of lust n the spirit that wants to drag me away God (thats wat the devil wants) n put my faith n trust in God n declare that i wont fall. i am single by the way, so that is no excuse itz just an excuse the devil tries to give us by pointing that out and telling us wat of tomorrow, dont ever believe that itz all lies just put your trust n faith in God. believe me i have faced everything you are facing n maybe more n worse with God you can do it.
