Choosing the right

This post will be more on the vague and philosophical side. It never ceases to amaze me how the harder I try to choose the right, the more intently the adversary comes to tempt me with things he knows I have difficulty resisting! I keep thinking, "once I make this big step, all of this will be easier," but am then met with another immense stumbling block. It is so difficult to put off the natural man.

It would be so much easier if sin didn't provide short and instantaneous satisfaction (though fleeting).

My Sister Sarah once told me that Satan is working hard to keep me from the temple because he knows that I will be an incredible ambassador for good. It's hard to see one's own potential, but I try to remember that and soldier on. I appreciate any words of encouragement.
