    THIS is life-changing for me. As soon as I read through, one root sin stuck out to me. I KNEW. And now I am getting set to confess it to God, and take those helpful steps described to repent and be free. Thank you so much.

    The Pen, can you please expound on what you mean by “Be Hard On Your Body?”

  5. The Pen

    To WMAMP3 when your body rules like hunger, hot/cold, desires for comfort, sex, let it not rule you but like the saints of old rule it…do not give in to all its desires for it has a mind of its own, habits of its own and wants to lead you as in Scripture” re “the world, the FLESH & the devil away from God…harness your body was a n old saying!
