Spiritual Guidance:          Never Let A Problem Overwhelm Your Life

Guidance

Many times in life, people struggle with problems or weaknesses that disrupt or overwhelm their life. These problems can rob them of peace, joy and happiness; make their life troubled, miserable and painful, and regrettably, in many cases, cause them to lose valued friends, assets, resources and their self-esteem, as well as to diminish their ability to achieve desired goals.

In many cases, their actions can cause discomfort, anxiety, and suffering for other people around them or people they interact with, and sadly, sometimes they hurt the people who love them the most.

Very commonly, when person is struggling with a difficult problem, one that is negatively affecting their life, they cannot help themselves, they cannot solve the problem on their own. They may be in denial or just too confused to know what to do. As a result they will need help. Some type of counseling, guidance, support or spiritual prayer.

Depending on the type and severity of the problem, it may need to be someone who is professionally trained to provide counseling in specific areas of psychology or they may need spiritual guidance. In many cases, an afflicted person will reach out for help but may not know how to find it, or will feel they cannot afford it.

Celestial Grace Temple offers free spiritual guidance to assist with these problems.

Let’s take a look that the five top causes that can negatively affect or corrupt a person’s life:
  • Lust:

  • Lust is an emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body or mind. The lust can take any form such as the lust for money, the lust for sex or the lust for power. It can take such mundane forms as the lust for food as distinct from the need for food. Lust is a powerful psychological force producing intense wanting for an object, activity or circumstance fulfilling a emotion or desire.

    Lust can corrupt, defile or destroy a person's life faster than any other human temptation or weakness. While God gave humans the ability to control lustful temptations or desires, some people have no will within themselves to do it. Their spiritual energy life force is out of alignment and they are weak in spiritual wisdom and faith, because of this, they unknowingly invite anti-spiritual energy forces to enter into their mind, which will control their thoughts and create overwhelming desires for lustful activities.

  • Greed:

  • Greed is a selfish and excessive desire for more of something than is needed, usually money, power or material possessions, but it can manifest itself into almost anything.

    Greed, like lust, can corrupt and defile a person's life. It turns a person’s focus and heart to the collection of material wealth or carnal activities and they lose their perspective of value on the truly important things in life.

    In many cases greed will lure a person into mischief, insidious, nefarious or criminal behavior and even if they are successful in collecting their wealth, their heart will be waxed cold. Their spiritual energy life force is out of alignment and they are weak in spiritual wisdom and faith. They place little to no value in the disposition of their character or soul and allow anti-spiritual energy forces to enter into their mind and create intense, irresistible greedy desires.

  • Dependency or Addiction:

  • Dependency is a masked or false desire and is the continued repetition of a behavior despite adverse consequences. Dependencies can include, but are not limited to, drug and alcohol abuse, sex, pornography or gambling addictions, food addictions that can lead to obesity and ill health. Some people become addicted to their work or to a hobby resulting in a loss of focus on other important areas of their life.

    Noticeable behavior of dependency or addiction include impaired control over substances or behavior, preoccupation with a substance or behavior and continued use despite harmful consequences and denial.

    Dependency can degrade or destroy a person’s life rapidly. Like lust, dependency is a powerful psychological force producing an intense need to satisfy a false desire.

    While God gave humans the ability to resist dependencies, some people do not have the mental or spiritual strength to do it. Their spiritual energy life force is out of alignment and they are weak in spiritual wisdom and faith; and they become vulnerable to anti-spiritual energy forces that penetrate into their mind and weaken their resistance.

  • Depression:

  • Depression is a mental or emontional weakness characterized by a pervasive and persistent subdued mood that is accompanied by low self-esteem and by a loss of interest to engage in normal human behavior or a loss of desire to engage in pleasant or enjoyable activities.

    Depression can alter a person’s view of reality, cause severe loss of hope and in some cases lead to self-destruction or suicidal tendencies. While God gave humans the ability to resist these type of emotional weaknesses, some people do not have the spiritual strength to do it.

    Their spiritual energy life force is out of alignment and they are weak in spiritual wisdom and faith, and they become susceptible to anti-spiritual energy forces that penetrate into their mind and distorts their perception of reality.

  • Anger:

  • Anger is a responsive emotional state usually related to one's psychological interpretation of having been threatened or a spontaneous result to excessive irritation.

Guidance

Anger is a very powerful and dangerous emotional force. It can disrupt or destroy a person’s life in a matter of seconds. Anger can quickly manifest into an uncontrollable rage resulting in damaging and regrettable actions. Statistically, anger is the number one cause for assaults and murders.

Additionally, anger can cause a person to develop bitterness, resentment and vengeance, and eat away at a person’s mind and soul like a cancer, all which will corrupt a person’s life.

God gave humans the ability to control anger and rage. Some people however, cannot control their emotions because their spiritual energy life force is out of alignment and they are weak in spiritual wisdom and faith. They become susceptible to anti-spiritual energy forces that penetrate into their body and weaken their ability to control emotional reactions.

In addition to these 5 weaknesses, there are 10 others that can be as equally disruptive, dangerous and can defile or destroy a person’s life.


All are the result of a person's spiritual energy life force being out of alignment and being weak in spiritual wisdom and faith:

  • Sloth or Indolence
  • Gluttony or Drunkenness
  • Wrath or Hatred
  • Envy or Jealousy
  • Pride or Vanity
  • Selfishness or Egocentrism
  • Lying or Mendaciousness
  • Immorality or Child Abuse
  • Lasciviousness or Rape
  • Godlessness or Satanism


Sadly, thousands of people throughout the world suffer from one or more of the conditions.

May the grace of God be upon you always --- Amen.
