Letter to myself:

As you begin this journey you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. This sin has dogged you for 44 years of looking at porn and 35 years of masturbation. I know you are afraid that you will not be able to win. You have tried unsuccessfully for so many years. However, you are getting help AND the Holy Spirit is powerful enough to help you overcome. Also, YOU ARE DEAD TO SIN! I know that you have said these things before and you know they are true, but you are afraid that you will go right back the first chance you get. Your spiritual health, your family, your ministry and God’s reputation are at stake. You CAN win by the power of the Holy Spirit and with the accountability that comes from groups like these. It’s time to win.

Letter from my sex addict:

I know I can overcome by the power of the Spirit, but my flesh truly enjoys the sin. It seems every time I am alone I revert back. However, the Lord is going to see me through. It ends NOW.
