    I had been away from God. I've been having major health problems for years. I tried to bargain with God , " if you heal me I will serve you " ( I was just being plain dumb )
    God doesn't need me,
    I need him , it's not on my terms. I know he wants me though and I want to do great things for the kingdom of God..

    I fell into major sexual sin /lust , major gambling addiction and many other different things.
    I got tired of running from God and being sick.
    I said enough is enough and came back to God. I said at least if I'm sick I'm going to have God in my corner .

    I felt so much guilt for the evil things I think and have done.
    I just cry and cry about how terrible I've been. Nothing but guilt . I know God forgives me but I need to forgive myself and its hard.
    For a bit i was like I don't feel anything why isn't God talking to me.
    This morning while I was in the word of God I felt him speak to me.like he put something on my mind that I need to do. That made me really happy but I struggled with unpure thoughts shortly after.

    So for prayer. My major health problems . My walk with God and my problem with lust.This morning I was out getting a few things for my kids for Christmas and this cashier I looked at lustfully . I looked at her once and I said please God help me under my breath and after that forced myself not to look at her until she told me the total and I had to pay.

    I'm praying and praying for God to help me with my lustful ways. I didn't suppress it for so long that its really hard to stop. I'll think of nasty things in my mind and I just ask God to help me to control my thoughts . I yearn to be right with the lord.

    If you are very healthy, a once a week 24 hour water fast could maybe work wonders for you. Too much fasting is stressful for the adrenals, so it is not wise to go beyond that.

    I pray you will be given freedom and healing for life.

    Your struggle is not unusual. Paul had a different sin problem but it was the same root cause. You will find no help in yourself. Paul's dilemma is in Romans 7. The answer is Romans 8. The answer is always found "in Christ".

    Remember that being tempted is not sin. Also, your mind belongs to you. Treat those thoughts and imaginations like trespassers to be evicted. Replace those thoughts with good things. You can't think two thoughts at the same time. Forgiving yourself is vital. God does not hold you to account, so why should you? It can be hard, I know. When you realise the power of the blood of Christ, it's easier. Your sin has been erased - all you need do is confess.

    LG,.
    The thing that stood out to me in your post, was how quick you were to realize you'd slipped. You immediately turned to God, then controlled your gaze. I know from my own struggles with fear years ago that you are on your way to success.

    As far as God not engaging very much, I would say it's part of his strategy to make you take those extra steps on your own without him. He loves you enough to do that. He sees you beating yourself up inside, and a loving Father wants his son to learn to like himself. That's easier if the son fights a few battles and wins.

    Jesus indicates that the problem is not external (though that can be a problem) but internal — within our own hearts. This is also where the issue of lust must be resolved.

    An old proverb still rings true today: Sow a thought, reap an act; sow an act, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.


    Lord Jesus Christ, I stand with LG as he comes boldly to You. He knows You are the Creator of every part of him, and he only wants to belong to You.

    I pray LG is made whole in his heart and mind. Your Word says we are to present our bodies to you as living sacrifices and the parts of our bodies as instruments of righteousness. Let LG's eyes be instruments of your righteousness. Let his thoughts and heart be a lot like the Lord's.

    Give my brother wisdom, understanding, and knowledge in all things concerning his life and his responsibilities. Give LG a talent that is useful and gratifying and please send trustworthy godly men into his life as friends. Father, heal LG's broken heart. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

    Heavenly Father, please help deliver this one from lustful thoughts, from the temptations that come at him, and help him to forgive himself from the sins of the past and present. I ask that You will heal his physical, emotional and spiritual body and restore him unto You, In Jesus Name, Amen

    This will definitely help - When that first thought comes across - like at the cashier, immediately switch to God's Word.. Stay with it. Advice based on "We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One." TPT (II Cor 10:5).

    Also, understand how awful it is when we realize how much we"ve messed up. Those thoughts bring us to repentance. "For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; ..." (II Cor 7;10).

    Then - we proceed Scripture such as "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (I John 1:9). We believe and have faith in Him, instead of our sins describing us, God defines our Christian identity as righteous - not ashamed (Psa 34:5), not disgraced (Isa 50:7), nor shameful (Isa 50:7, Eph 4:15, I Joh 1:9). So the same advice as above, when our - you've really messed up thoughts, declare a Scripture such as I John 1:9 - since I've confessed,, God is faithful and just. I'm forgiven and clean because of Jesus.
