Honestly, what is a sin you struggle with as a Christian that is hard to shake?

Just curious. I have been struggling lately and wondered if anyone else was struggling with anything in particular in their walk with God? Just looking for some encouragement I guess.

Update:

Not baiting, promise, but that would have been a good idea. I am being totally honest in my curiosity. At least I know I am not the only believer that struggles. I feel really guilty sometimes.

    I'm not good in religion, but we are on the same side. and I believe that every christian struggle the same way. Honestly, it's hard to answer your question if I don't know what your are struggling with. Even a clergy or a priest struggles with their daily walk with God. To battle evil, you must used the right weapon. and the best weapon is knowledge. And the best knowledge and encouragement that I can give to you is read the bible.

    As long as we live on this earth, many attempt will come. The attempt will become a fight. And a fight for struggle is not easy. if you don't have the right knowledge, you will loss your combat for struggle. Start flipping those pages, and I believe, you will find the answer to your question and start winning.

    I must admit, the frustration I feel when someone is presented with real facts and they are so blind that they refuse to see it. Its almost as though they think they are playing some kind of game.

    I guess maybe I should pay more attention to the passage:

    "Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you go out from there, shake the dust off the soles of your feet for a testimony against them."

    Mark 6:11 (NASB)

    Its hard to walk away from those you know are hell bound.

    About 2 1/2 years ago, I started doing meth... I got pregnant 2 years ago, and quit the day I found out I was pregnant. Even though I quit, I still struggle with the temptation every day... God, my son, and my family are the only things keeping me sober right now... Without them, I don't know where I would be today!!!

    I feel lust and the temptation to commit adultery pretty much on a daily basis. I deal with it by thinking of the love I have for the subject of my lust and temptation. Basically, the strength of my love for God and my love and caring for the other person involved pretty much always exceeds the strength of the lust and temptation.

    Basically, it is a spirtitual battle that I am determined to win, especially when it comes to adultery because it always involves someone else who I should be witnessing to.

    Part of gaining victory over what controls of life (sin) is to first identify what you are battling. Only then can you truly confront and defeat that sin, but not in your power alone. But the biggest sin I struggle with is the ability to love myself as God loves me. As Jesus said, "Love your neighbor has you love yourself." That's hard to do when you don't really like yourself.

    Yes, my short fuse and not thinking that my talents will be good enough, I know in my heart what I give is pleasing but it's my insecurities.I play guitar at church and still get stage fright, even thogh God is with me. It is a human fault, and I thank Him for his forgiveness as we all fall short of His glory. Happy New Year and God bless

    Doubt, I become burdened thinking of my inability to serve my Father. That is when I have to stop what I am doing and pray for the Holy Spirit to come back to me, sometimes I have to read a bit of Scripture also.

    I know exactly how you feel. Lust and temptation get to me everyday. Keep trying hard and resist the sins and talk to the Lord about it.

    The fact that I understand that god made the rules and expects of us what he himself doesn't do.

    I know to much, and therefore I must be killed.

    God makes the rules. Satan broke the rules. God punished him. I'd have to side with satan on this one

  • I would have to say not trusting God to rule in all of my life..Of course if I have allowed Him to rule over every bit of my life I would never have to wonder this question,,would I..My New Year's resolution will be to allow God to work more in my life !!!!
