Journey Out Of Captivity
As a pornography addict, i had to embrace Danger in order to take the journey out of captivity. The Danger was being brutally honest with my wife about what i had been doing the first nine years of our marriage. The healing of my heart required me to walk a Dangerous road and there was no guarantee that things would all work out along the way.
i struggled to be fully honest. It was physically painful to tell her my sordid past. But secrets need to be exposed.
As Proverbs says:
He who conceals his sins does not proper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. (28:13)
Through the years i had done some confession, although what i shared in so-called accountability groups was never the whole story. But i had never renounced anything.
i was being forced to renounce my previous life. In the process i was learning just how much of a hold pornography had had on me.
i realized i was subservient to it.
