    I struggling I’ve been on NoFap for almost yr and half although I was still going out and clubbing drinking and smoking weed Ive recently gave all that up 2 months ago and in all that time.I’ve been praying to Jesus to help me and I have been seeking a Church and this one is of Church of Christ denomination and they are persistent about being baptized and a part of me is still reluctant to do it and to join their congregation also on top of that. I’m still having wet dreams even though I haven’t watched porn or masturbated and hope to have female companionship. I still live at home with my parents at 29 and still don’t have a career I like and it’s weighing on me I just need advice I know Jesus should be sufficient enough but turning away from sin hasn’t made me that much happier and feel lonely because my parents and friends aren’t really trying to live the Christian lifestyle

    So, props for giving up drinking, weed, for praying more and seeking out a church!! Wow you are making some really positive lifestyle changes!

    Having wet dreams is normal - actually, they are a really good sign! It means your body is resetting to natural reward systems, and they are something to celebrate! Hooray wet dreams! Way to go!

    And it's good to have a place to live. It can be very easy to be down on yourself for not moving out or not having a career or whathaveyou. I was. 27, on welfare and moving back in with my parents - oh joy! But I could not have predicted what God was going to do in my life. I didn't know he was laying the groundwork for where I am now, three years later. I didn't know I needed that four months to grieve moving, heal from my painful roommates, and start a small success. I didn't know he was drawing me to Trois-Pistoles so that, with his help, I could freaking crush it at French. I could not have predicted that a two-month contract would have led to a family who took me in, on the far side of the country where I knew no one and that his kindness through them would enable me to finish my bachelor's, and that he would then care for me as I went back for more (!) and finished a teaching degree. I could not have know the love that he would pour out on me when I was living with my parents.

    So you better f*cking brace yourself - grace is coming for you.

    "Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
