Proverbs chapter 3 . 11 son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 13 Happy is the man thatfindeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.note 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. 19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.note 20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. 21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: 22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. 23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. 24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. 25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. 26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. 27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. note 28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come

This is something I'm struggling with but I'm trying to overcome it. It's a process but Jesus will help you and me.
I've heard it multiple times, even before I got saved, "Lust is natural." "It's horomonal." "It's normal for teenage boys to lust after girls." or anything of the sort.
Jesus says in Matthew 5:28,
"But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." I need to explain something first.
For those of you who don't understand how being saved works, let me try to explain it to you. When you get saved, you are bought with a price by Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwells in you. Now, after that, you have the Spirit and you have your flesh. Your flesh has been with you since you've been born and it's your skin and everything within the shell of your skin. Skin, blood, muscles, vessels, cells, hormones.
Galatians 5:16-21 explains this next point.
"16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."
Galatians 5:16-21 KJV. (Lust in verses 16-17 means something the flesh wants, not a sexual lust.) Notice how some of these sins are listed in a pattern. For example "...wrath, strife...". In order to go against someone, there needs to be some sort of wrath targeted toward them.
Now, look at "...Adultery...". What comes right after that? "fornication"! In order to fornicate, most people start out by lusting or as Jesus says, committing adultery!

Wow. Such is life right? The past few days have left my heart feeling slightly off kilter....But this evening brings peace and I am grateful.
There are so many beautiful and good people in my life. So many whom have no idea how much I truly appreciate them. I try to tell the ones I love and appreciate how much they mean to me. I always wonder if it’s enough. And do I forget to tell those closest to me? Do they forget to tell me?
I am only human. We are only human. Not super. We all have so much going on in our lives. So many things that can take our brains in 30 different directions at once. This is when I hope and pray the ones I love can give me grace and patience. I take great pride in striving everyday to give grace to those around me...to those who have hurt me and to those who have blessed me. And I pray that the ones I love can just know that I am here and that I love the best I can... despite any hurt, confusion, pain, stress, joy, or celebration I may have occupying my life at the moment.
Life is good when you find the good. Find what brings you peace. I have my little mantras. I have the little things that help create my zen place. They are small, but they bring me closer to what brings peace in my life. I hope others can find the same.

We like our comfort zones – even if it holds us back from achieving our dreams or Goals? We call that Fear! What if you could step over to the other side of fear, what would you do?
Fear holds you back, from achieving success in relationships, work, health , God etc it keeps you stuck, and for some it’s a lifetime. It is really amazing the hold that fear can have over your life – but you CAN break through to the other side! Truly.
What is on the other side of fear? .
It could be spiritual Growth, success, happiness, self-confidence, empowerment, money, opportunities, healthy relationships, and religious freedom ! How does that sound! Did you say fabulous!
Much of fear is in our mindset and the control others had or have over our minds. Even from childhood. Guilt is also closely related with this fear. Remember, you control your mind, not the other way around. And let go of the guilt!
However I don’t think you can eliminate fear altogether, that being so, we need to learn how to live with it and put it in its place. It’s okay to be afraid every now and then; just work through it. 🎉
You’ll find every time you do, it gets easier!
I suggest you do more research on this subject depending on your specific needs and goals. .

From Tony Robbins’ ‘Unleash the Power Within’ where he speaks about habits changing and forming. Regardless what you may think of the man and his, what some may say, over-the-top personality, he hits the nail on the head with this topic.
To put it simply, many of us severely limit ourselves, purely because we believe we are something, when in reality we are just the sum of all of our habits. If we are able to change our habits, we can change ourselves!
The problem is that many of us are so attached to our habits, we let them form our identity without ever really stopping to think…. Is this the person I want to be?
Is this how I want to feel?
Does this habit serve a purpose to me?
Am I acting with intention or out of habit?
A good measure of this is to distinguish your identity.
I know, you’re probably like what is this ‘whoo-whoo’ crap you’re talking about! Buttttt I’m serious and this actually has helped sooo many people I’ve worked with. I mean think about it, have you ever actually sat down and written out on paper who you want to be?! The first time I did this about 3 years ago, I was baffled because who I realized I was in that moment was not who I wanted to be. But taking the first step to becoming aware of that is the most important step you can take. From there it’s all math… just reverse engineering! You see where you want to be, and then you look at each habit it takes to get there.
In my mind it would go something like this…
I SAY: “I WANT TO BE THE BEST COACH POSSIBLE, ALWAYS ENERGETIC AND CONFIDENT”
I ASK: “SO WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?” I ANSWER: “IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE WHO MOVES QUICKLY, WALKS UPRIGHT, SMILES AT EVERYONE, AND IS INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE.” . .
