We are all human and are tempted each day. We can be tempted by our cravings for those certain foods we really should not eat, shopping too much or sometimes easily drawn into gossiping when we know we should not and then there are the more serious issues of temptations which can all certainly lead us down the wrong path. When you are faced with something that temps you, how do you resist it or escape it? Thank you for answering.

Wow, dashingscorpio, you have provided great insight here as to the human condition! I do allow myself one treat day on my diet for that very reason. So true as to anything we place high value on for sure! Great quote, and perfect for this question
Hi Suzzette, oh, me too, on the chocolate. Prayer is truly the only thing that helps me with those serious temptations and crying out to the Lord! Hahaha on the cold shower ... that is actually a great solution LOL I appreciate your great answers.
Haha ... Yes, why resist ... in the area of sweet desserts! Chocolate is my number one hard to resist too, and so I don't resist that craving. Life is too short to miss out on chocolate. You have your plan down that works. Thank you for sharing!
Hello tlmcgaa70, yes, He will certainly always provide an escape as He tells us in His word. Our temptations may be ever so strong, but we can overcome all things through Christ who strengthens us no doubt. Thank you for answering!
Hello Ven, thank you so much for answering. Sweets are so hard to resist no doubt, for me too. I understand about the wife, being I am one!
Always ... dear Frank, I do understand believe me. Yes, there is a song, well, many songs on temptation... "Temptation Eyes" The flesh is a powerful thing when it gets out of control. I appreciate the honest answer : )
Hello thomasczech, Yes, it certainly is all around us ... Jesus helps me too when I look up to Him. He will ALWAYS provide an escape! Great answer.
Hi erorantes, You are very wise as to think about the consequences of your actions, for once that instant gratification for whatever is gone then .... no good at all will come of it in the future most likely. Thank you for your insight!
Thanks Kevin. For most if a temptation is a strong one, it is not that easy, but I am glad it is easy for you to do so. Blessings
I always wanted to go my own way instead of "follow the leader", like joining groups or gangs. I never played games like follow the leader.
Wow, Kevin, thank you for sharing that, as peer pressure or whatever pressure such as you describe is a great temptation as relates to the desire to be accepted. I am so happy you remained true to your conviction to remain true to yourself!
You are welcome Faith. Have a nice day! :)
You're welcome, Kevin. Going your own way is the best way to go indeed! God bless. Hugs
Hello bibliopola, Yes, mine is chocolate ... anything chocolate. Sweets (sugar) are almost like an addiction, but food can truly become an addiction real quick. One must have that mindset of a lifestyle change.
