Battling against our own evil desires.

Fight the flesh. Fight the evil desires, and bad habits. Fight the temptation to act like everyone else and give in to the immoral things of this world. Limit the time spent on the things in this world that do not matter. Fight the good fight and remember the joy of the Lord is our strength. Without faith it is impossible to please God so we should practice using our Faith. If someone can not share their faith then they may have more fear than their faith. It takes faith to share what we believe, because the enemy will not make it easy for those that share their faith. The struggle is real, we are not fighting against each other but powers principalities and the rulers of the darkness. We cannot face these powers and come out victorious without faith. We can not have a victorious life without facing these enemies. The first battle starts in the mind that is what the enemy comes after which is what makes it so important.

It is not possible, to be able, to constantly resist bad habits, without having a spiritual life. Habits are designed to keep the user distracted, so that their spiritual life is inhibited. If the enemy can keep someone focused on using, or their next fix, or habit rather than living a spiritual, positive life, the battle is already over. There is hope I am here to let everyone know that all bad habits can be broken. I will not condemn anyone for bad habits. I do ask that everyone remain positive and to respond with love. I started this because I have had many bad habits, and I know there are not to many people that actually talk about this. This is not a popular subject, people don’t want to admit they have bad habits. When I smoked cigarettes I refused to admit it was a bad habit. I would make excuse after excuse to continue the habit until I woke up. Bad habits are anything that keep us from our potential, or anything that comes between someone and their higher power. It all starts in the thoughts and I do believe that if we can grasp the importance of the mind and our thoughts, we can control the whole outcome of the battle. The most important thing to realize is that this is a Battle, and if we are only focused on pleasure when we have free time, we are already giving up.

Someone can not possibly be positive, and not remember, there are unfortunate people in the world. To give is positive, and if we are not giving at least our prayers, for the less fortunate, then we are not being positive. Pray for those that cannot pray for themselves, and do not be selfish and think of only gratification, but be a light so others may find the way. Be a fighter for the good cause. There are many people of the world that think they are rebels because they break the rules, but the truth is most of the world lives without morals. The true rebels are the people that are true diciples of the gospel. People that stick to their morals when the whole world around them tells them that they are the enemy. Jesus told his diciples to drop everything and follow Him. Can you do that? Would you be willing to drop everything in this crazy life to follow Him? When I think about this I pray that I have that kind of faith. I challenge everyone here to take one thing that usually gives you pleasure, and instead of getting pleasure today, spend that time in prayer for all the slaves. Pray that they may be supernaturally set free. Drop that one habit and follow Him if it’s just for 5 minutes.

Father I pray for everyone that reads this page that they may find this challenge and accept it. I pray that we are all able to deny our flesh more so that You may change our lives and help us fight the good fight against the enemy. I pray for strongholds to be removed because no weapon formed against us will prosper. I pray for freedom for all the slaves in the world.i pray that they are supernaturally set free and that the true believers wake up and realize the war being waged against us. I come against any attack of the enemy against anyone that has a chance to be saved, or anyone that is teaching the truth. I pleed the Blood Of Jesus over everyone of us. I ask this in Jesus name.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
