A Better Confession

Well as going thru the setting captives free it said I should bring light to what has happened and I am going to do so. I’m going to be very honest and blunt and I suggest if your younger you do not read on. I’m going to write it in a decent way but some stuff might not be acceptable to younger people.

The last year I have dealt with alot of sexual impurity. I have dealt with pornography, self gratification and have put some friendships in awkward positions but those have been fixed. Out of all this my talk and my life with God hasn’t been good at all. I haven’t been with God like I should be. I was only seeking him when I was crying out for help or an intervention. I was hiding in darkness and sin like a fungus grows and gets strength in that darkness. From keeping my sin hidden all I was letting it do was grow and it became worse.

But what I am doing now is bringing light to that and am confessing that the image I have put on to alot of people wasn’t 100% true. I didn’t want to bring light to anything cause I was afraid of what might happen or what people would think. But all those thoughts were cause of the strength of the sin in my life telling my lies.

But I’m telling you all now. That I have stopped my habitual sin. I am on day 3 of 60 of my setting captives free course for getting thru pornography and sexual impurity. In these 3 days I have made more progress than I have ever made in the past. I feel so much better about myself.

I had forgotten the power of bringing sin to light until I was reminded by it, And the common lie of the devil is that it will make us feel worse or more guilty, But that isn’t true. When bringing sin to light we sap the strength and power it has on us. Sin is like a fungus in all ways. Fungus can’t live in light it has to remain in dark.

Now it’s not common to announce sin so publicly. Normally you just tell a few people and your accountability partners. But cause I am in a place of leadership and people are reading my blog and getting answers from what God has shown me. I felt it was appropriate to bring it to public light.

I hope that thru my confession others will do the same and I also want you to know if you struggle with this you are not alone. Everyone does and I suggest you go thru the setting captives free course.

Much love ~ Jeremy

  1. Good Job Jeremy, I’m impressed and proud of your willingness to share so openly, I hope that what you are doing will help other young men in our group to do the same.

  2. It’s great you have hit this problem head on.It shows you are really serious about beating this so it doesn’t stand between you and God. Also by putting it out in the open you now have a lot more people that can help you and hold you accountable and pray for you. You may still get little jabs thrown at you here and there by the enemy or he may try to make you feel ashamed or guilty. Stand strong with God and ignore anything negative that comes your way and you will be successful in winning this battle for purity.
