The Lord has recently brought me back to him, and I have been trying to live a more God-pleasing life ever since. I have been relatively successful, with one major exception. I struggle with masturbation as well as the viewing of pornographic material. I have told the lord several times that I am trying to stop and I need his help, but I have been weak and failed every time. I have been doing this for years and can't find the strength to stop. I am disgusted with myself, I hate the fact that I am weak and cannot fight temptation. I have tried about everything I can do, and I am tired of feeling ashamed of myself before the Lord. I fear the Holy Spirit will leave me if I continue down this path. I desperately need help in fight this temptation, and hope someone here can give me advice, or at the very least, their heart-felt prayers.
