How has "pride month" affected you guys?
It's difficult to find fellowship. There are few of us, as was with Elijah thinking he was the only one.
The only thing I would know is to tell you my story. It is Jesus that sets us free, however our flesh DOES fight.
Someone must have been praying one of those "whatever it takes" prayers for me. The beginning of my coming to the Lord was a motor vehicle accident that happened in 2011, myself and the driver were nearly killed. I should be dead and in hell but God had mercy. I wound up with a crushed pelvis among other injuries.
I was a drunken, medicated, sodomite, among other things. The accident "put me out of commission" one might say. It's amazing what paxil, zyprexa, depacote, and other medications will make one not care about. I was put on them in the late 90's, that was the beginning of the end. I had thrown away a wife and a son at that point.
I've been off medications and booze since 2014, To God be the Glory.
Temptations will come Chelsea 777, the Lord is able to bring us out. In the beginning of this walk satan sent a cross dressing, ex prison, sodomite to my home. By that time and in that time it wasn't a problem for me, praise the Lord.
I would have answered sooner but I've been out of town. There was no computer there.
Lean on Jesus and may he perfect his strength in your weakness. Staying in prayer, reading the scriptures, singing and learning the old hymns, helped me a great deal. I've been told that blind and deaf people NEED hellevision, I'm greatful Miss Fanny Crosby had none. Feel free to message me if you'd like.
Make sure of salvation first. Be very sure. Brother Bryan does excellent sermons concerning this. I have "What is True Biblical Salvation" playing now.
