Endurance is its Own Freedom

I have been struggling with temptations and impulses to act out recently. I kept wishing and praying that the temptations would go away. As I did, they only seemed to get louder, more demanding, and more powerful.

Then I changed course, and I began to pray that I would have the strength to endure the temptations and withstand the desire to act out.

Slowly, the temptations began to recede. Or at least they felt less appealing, as I believe my prayers for endurance were answered. I continue to offer them today and ask for yours as well, if you’re the praying sort. I’ll keep you in mine.
