I Am Very Weak and Frail To Temptation
Published on April 2, 2010 By KFC Kickin For Christ In Blogging

They say confession is good for the soul.  I'm feeling really guilty so I must confess. 

All kinds of things come to mind now.  The thought that it really isn't that bad comes and goes along with the thought that I can't believe I sabtotaged myself like that.  I've been doing so well and this happened.  Why can't I just be good?  Why do I do what I don't want to do and do what I shouldn't do? 

I am flawed.  That's the only human explanation.  The spirit is willing but the flesh is so weak.  I can see doing this in my 20's but not in my 40's!  I could afford it then, but not now.  Every little thing I do makes a bigger difference now.  More is at stake. 

My muscles ache for all the work I've done in the last couple of weeks.  I wake up feeling achy and I have to admit it really feels good.  I've been running alot.  I've been doing quite a bit of gardening.  I've been walking to get the mail instead of driving the golf cart.  I've been lifting weights at night while watching TV.   Heck I've even been doing the sit-ups that I used to love doing but now hate. 

I've been so good!  I'm feeling the success of my hard work.  I'm getting second looks when I walk down the street.  I had someone say to me the other day that I was looking good!  Yeah baby! 

So what did I do?  Why do I have to confess? 

I ate two klondike bars yesterday in quick succession!  Like in 10 minutes.  Gah!  They were good and it's hot!  Cooled me right down, but I can't believe I did that especially in lieu of my goals to lose inches and weight. 

So just like that it was a done deal!  Can't turn back now.  Ate the evidence!   Interestingly in trying to avoid our excesses sometimes we go extremely the other way and I did just that by going out today and buying a half flat (six pints) of gorgeous, plump, juicy red strawberries.  But really how bad can that be?  Not in my book. 

Of course I ate almost a whole pint; couldn't help myself. Hopefully that will keep me far away, from the other Klondike bars lurking only one freezer away, from having to make another confession!

Why do they put six in a package?  It's only a matter of time.

You naughty girl. 2 klondike bars? Shame on you.

I'm sure God forgives you. 

If I was to confess I'm not sure hell would be punishment enough for me. I have not confessed for over 10 years and while I have not killed anyone I have not been the best role model for the 10 commandments.

I just recently started going to the local Catholic Church and to be honest it feels good.

Say 4 Hail Mary's and 2 Our Fathers.

I know, I know.  Just pile it on.  I need to hear it so I won't repreat it.    But it tasted so yummy.

Sin is sin.  One little sin separates us from God.  So it doesn't have to be murder to make this happen.  

It's not hard to confess your sins.  Contrary to some beliefs you don't have to go to any special place to do this.  Close your door, talk to God alone and confess to Him.  That's it.  He will forgive.  "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."  1 John 1:9

and yes that goes for eating two Klondike bars as well.

No, but as you said, confession is good for the soul.  So I was just trying to help you out.

Besides, the Hail Mary's are for resisting temptation (you only ate 2) and the our Fathers are for not resisting the other 2. (you have to have logic in these things ya know).

ahhhhh instead of eating the whole box?  So while the first and second were tempting me the fact I stopped at two is commendable?  Ok.  I like that.
