I get them now. The nightmares of my coworker leaving and there just being nothing I can do about it. I look back on it and I think What did I do? Why did I ignore the Spirit for so long? Why did I follow my own flesh? Why could I have not just kept my distance?
The feelings are so strong. I can’t see clearly. Satan uses it to crush me and forget my purpose. It destroys me. I feel my flesh is eating away at my soul and slowly breaking me down into ash. It’s disappointing and discouraging. I feel I can’t overcome it and then I remembered 1 Corinthians 10:13.
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide a way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
