“Dignity” /ˈdignitē/ noun-

1. The moment you realize that the person you cared for has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you, but a headache.

2. The moment you realize God had greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or sad Pinterest quotes.

3. The moment you stop comparing yourself to others because it undermines your worth, education and your parent’s wisdom.

4. The moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter.

5. The moment you realize that no one is your enemy, except yourself.

6. The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.

7. The moment you realize the ghost of your ancestors stood between you and the person you loved. They really don’t want you mucking up the family line with someone that acts anything less than honorable.

8. The moment you realize that happiness was never about getting a person. They are only a helpmate towards achieving your life mission.

9. The moment you believe that love is not about losing or winning. It is just a few moments in time, followed by an eternity of situations to grow from.

10. The moment you realize that you were always the right person. Only ignorant people walk away from greatness.” – Shannon L. Alder

To Be Stronger, Set Your Mind To Be Weak

To Be Stronger, Set Your Mind To Be Weaker
(Guest Blog from Dr. Mark Laaser and Dr. Tim Clinton)

In the battle with sexual longings and fantasies, and even with pornographic visions and vain imaginations, in the struggle over lust, we need the truth about overcoming. Here’s the truth: Keeping the law won’t work. Even if you could do it, it would count for nothing, for Jesus said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

If you try to use a law to overcome sin, you will discover that your sin will grow as if it’s on steroids! In fact, the power of sin comes from the law. If you use a law to try to defeat sin, just the opposite will happen. The Apostle Paul says in Romans 7:13 that it will make your sin “utterly sinful”, immeasurable! In the attempts to get free from sexual sin, the law only makes sin more powerful.

We need to ask ourselves, “If following the law could work, then why would God have put Christ’s life in us?” The law was never designed to deliver us from sin in the first place. The purpose of the law is to merely expose to me that my sin is killing me, that I need a Savior to deliver me. Therefore, the new strategy is not, “Be stronger!” That is a thorough misconception of the Christian life. Our new strategy from Christ and the Apostle Paul is, “Be weaker.” If you are strong, then what is Christ supposed to do? If you are strong and working on getting stronger, then what do you need Christ for?

If you are frustrated and disappointed in yourself, then, sadly, that means that you’re trusting in yourself. You were trusting in your strength to get up and be good for Jesus’ sake! That may be religion, but it is not Christianity. And it doesn’t work.

We can fulfill the commands of the Father, but we do it now by the power of His life, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, do not try to follow a law to be more pure for God in your own strength, as a good Christian man. Doing that is a setup for failure!

Do you want to be stronger? Then set your mind to be weaker.
Weakness is the strategy of grace.

Jesus Christ does not have a struggle with sexual sin. Of course not. Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, knew no sin (see 2 Corinthians 5:21). He is sexually pure.
Where does He live now?

He now lives in you, if you have received Him and believed in Him as Savior. Present your body to Him as a living sacrifice (see Romans 12:2). Present yourself to Him, the sexually pure One. Submit yourself to Him (see James 4:7). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (see Philippians 4:13).
Tell Him you are in a battle, and that you trust Him to live His life in you. Yield to His life in you, and let His life be reflected as your life. That’s growing by grace.
Grace has good news for you: No matter what you have done, the Lord Jesus Christ is still living in you. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, how far you’ve fallen, how bad it’s gotten. With grace, it’s about who He is and what He’s done, and the power of His life that is working within you. He works in the pain and the beauty, for He is after your heart, not perfect behavior. Give Him the gift He wants. Give Him your heart. Come to the end of yourself, and say yes to the grace of God.
