A few months ago I made a thread about repenting from found footage horror films, and I'm happy to say that I've kept my promise and I will not go back to horror films. For the past few years however, I've been drowning myself in materialism. Not drowning in a way a hoarder does, but the lust of my eyes. I have no problem throwing things away if it does not please me, because a hoarder has a problem keeping things. Lust, gluttony and greed are my sins here, and I am guilty. I've already made a decision, and I have thought hard about this.
On 1/1/14, I have decided not to buy anything (aside from food and survival things), I will not buy one material thing for one year. After the one year is done, I will turn to God when making decisions from now on and not buy out of lust, gluttony and greed. I always choose New years day to repent of these most difficult sins. To be honest, I am tired. My drug of choice is DVD's and clothing, and I have worn myself thin. I have given to the church however in purchasing many Bible films, but it is still so. Please forgive me Lord, and show me the way back to your heart. I wish not to have the heart of Solomon but rather Paul. I also need support and forgiveness from forum and fellow believers. Does anybody else have this sin lurking around them? Give me the strength and wisdom to understand these passages Lord and please show mercy on me. . Please show me your ways Lord Jesus.
Matt 6:25 Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
1 John 2:16 - For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
