Don’t be tempted

dont be temptated

One more episode, just a bit of chocolate, just a drink, another coffee, another pillow won’t hurt, just in case, that box of cereal, sleep in a bit more, just another card, one more purchase, just one night, just a coffee break, just one visit, there are so many temptations in life, so many things that can ruin a relationship, so many things that can break people apart, so many temptations in life and it can and will be hard to get through life without these temptations in the way. We have so many temptations in our life and we have to fight against these things everyday, sometimes we are able to ignore them and other days we fall into it and life can be hard. We feel annoyed with ourselves when things do not go right and that may be due to our circumstances but it could also be that we are tempted by the things that are not good for us.

Some people find it easy to be tempted away from the things that are good for them, they find it easy to cheat, they find it easy to destroy, they find it easy to do things that are not good for them and it can be and will be hard. Being tempted is not something good in life and it will not be an easy thing to do and to fight against. There will be times when temptation is bigger than other times especially when you have had an argument with the person you love, another person will show love to you and you will be tempted, when you are craving something you will want to buy something that is not good for you, you are being tempted, when your children are being frustrated you will be tempted to get annoyed with them. However, each and everyday you will need to work through it and you will need to make sure that you fight against temptation.

Not only is temptation rife in your life everyday but it can also be rife in your marriage too, there will be times when a richer person comes along, there will be a time when a prettier woman comes along and you will be tempted to leave your wife, there will be a time when you have an argument and you will be tempted to leave, there will be times when you want to spend money but you need to save it, there will be times when you will be tempted to give up but you don’t and you shouldn’t. There are so many temptations in life but you will be able to work through them and you will be able to keep on going. Temptations promises everything, it promises more time, more money, pretty ladies, handsome men, good things, more cash, more everything but it does not deliver anything. Instead it delivers disgust, heartache and stress.

Everyday there are temptations in life and that is just the same for marriage too, there will be times when you struggle but don’t give up, there will be times when you want to quit but don’t give up, there will be times when you want to argue but don’t give up. Don’t let the temptations get in the way of an amazing marriage and an amazing time you can have with the one you love. Just because you are married does not mean that everything is perfect, it does not mean that all will be well, it does not mean that marriage will be a disaster but it will mean that you will have to work hard on keeping your marriage going. There will be more temptations as life goes on but as always you need to work on it and know that things will get better if you are able to trust both your partner and God.

You will try and work on your temptations but as we all know we are not perfect and things will happen that we are not proud of. However, through God we are able to get through life and we are able to make sure that we can rely on God and He will help us to avoid temptations and be a better person. There will be times in our life that we will still get tempted by things and people around us but through God in our lives we are able to be strong against them and to work to be better. If you trust and fully believe that God has made you for a reason and God loves you then through Him you will then be able to work against temptation.
