The thorn in the flesh

The thorn in the flesh Paul speaks of I believe was left unnamed because, for everyone it is different. The thorn in the flesh is the constant reminder that we are constantly fighting against the evil desires of the flesh. Bad habits are a thorn in the flesh because, bad habits cause sin, if they aren’t sin already. This is the design of the enemy to destroy each of us, in any way possible. I feel like The Father equipped each person to truly know in their hearts, the difference between right and wrong. I really wish the world would stop picking at each other and start examining our own hearts. There’s so much hate and division, this is what the rulers in high places have been pushing for.


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.
