The girl got on the machine next to me
There were lots of similar machines…she chose this one
In one glance I knew there was potential trouble
She wasn’t wearing much. What she was wearing fit rather nicely…tight if you catch my drift
She was very attractive
I had to use discipline to bounce my eyes
By the way, that kind of discipline starts early
It doesn’t begin in the moment
But, it took discipline
I knew she was there the entire time. I just chose not to look
In fact, instead, I chose to write this blog post
Reminds me though…Satan is not above tempting a pastor
(And, yes, pastors are human)
Satan has great abilities but, thankfully, he has limited powers over the believer
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)
“the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
I won the battle. That day. Actually God’s Spirit won. This time.
There will be other battles. Even before this day ends probably.
I must be prepared.
