Yes, you hit the nail on the head. How many times have I had the curious thoughts of- "Why not? He did it, he partook of forbidden fruit for all that time...he satisfied cravings- why can't I?" and "I could use a little excitment in MY life too"...so many thoughts pop into your head to 'even the score'. And yet...afterwards, its frightening that those thoughts even enter, considering the PAIN it would cause. I don't believe I have ever had the whisperings of Satan so clearly heard right inside of my head than following discovery- even now, after 2 1/2 years. Any time we argue, they come. Any time the flooding of pain and the imaginings return, they come. I AM vulnerable. And in a strange sense, it also gives me a teeny sense of understanding of how on earth he did this. He didn't have the "benefit" of realizing the consequences and the pain of giving into the temptation. I do. Thank you for sharing this encouragement.

Exactly!

It's crazy how recognizing our own weakness really does empower us to choose life! You expressed it so well. Thank you!
