Revolutionaries, what are you fighting for??
A revolution has bugun. All over the world. Most of us see it and all of us experience it, though we don't realize what is going on. I am sure that most people if not everyone has personal battles. I know I have had and am having my fair share. We are revolutionaries of a new time, revolutionaries of a new age. Sure there are the old kind of revolutionaries who fight wars for their freedom, instigate coups and overthrow tyrranical governments, and speak out against all sorts of inhumane injustices that we all know are taking place in the world. Our revolution is different. Our revolution is, for lack of a better term, eternal. Our leader is the ultimate revolutionary. Our enemy, the ultimate tyrant. We are all waging this war for our souls. Whether we are battling an addiction to pornography, drugs, booze, pain, or self doubt, it is the same enemy we fight against. If you haven't figured it out by now I will tell you who the players are. Our leader; the ultimate revolutionary, is He who is the same from the beginning, the ultimate defender of our eternal freedom, our Rock, Jesus Christ. Our enemy is the father of lies who would have us believe that we can do no better than our current state. And that he has the power to make us happy. Honestly he is very good at this. I know from my own experience that when you are in the throes of your addiction it does feel very good. However when all is said and done you are left with a feeling of self-contempt, lowliness of heart and disbelief at what you have become. This is a great tool that he uses in this cyclical process. The act we perform makes us feel good, the aftermath is unpleasant to say the least, so we seek to perform the act once more as a way to release ourselves from our unpleasant feelings. It is the most vicious and disheartening experience I can imagine. The point of my blog is to unite all who are revolutionaries. All who are battling something. All who feel that there is no way out of the vicious cycle they have fallen into. And to stand up, stand firm, and declare with all of our energies, NO!!!! We will not go quietly. We will not go easily. We will fight tooth and nail. You will have to give your all for every inch you get. As it has been said before, "It will not be easy, But it will be worth it."
