Baruch Ata Hashem...SheHechiyanu V'Kiyimanu V'Higiyanu Lazman Hazeh! 04 Mar 2009 02:21 #3520

  • Mevakesh Hashem
I am proud to share with you that today, is my 1 year anniversary of rediscovering Hashem. I havent watched porn in a year. I havent masturbated in a year. I havent willingly gazed at women in a year. I havent listened to secular radio or TV in a year. I havent watched a secular movie in a year. I havent listened to non Jewish music in a year etc. etc.

I have spoken to Hashem more in the past year than in my entire life previously. I havent missed Tefilah B'Tzibur in a year! I havent missed a day of learning Torah in a year! etc. etc.

I dont write this to gloat or to be haughty Chas V'Shalom, rather to prove to all of you that IT CAN BE DONE!!

If i did it, and came back from the lowest depths of sin, ANYONE can do it! Trust me, I was not deserving of a second chance, but our Father in heaven, Melech Malchei Hamelochim gives EVERYONE the opportunity to do Teshuva, NO MATTER how in despair the situation may seem!

I thank Hashem from the bottom of my heart for giving me the strength to remain clean for an  entire year. May Hashem give me, and all of you, the Koach to remain steadfast in our resolve to live correctly.

We all make mistakes and we all have Nisyonos. The key is to get up,admit your weakness, and keep going! It's not being right that matters, it's living right!

My dear brothers and sisters, I love you all and I admire you all. YOU all have a huge part in this milestone, no question about it.

I doubt I would be here today celebrating this huge victory over the Yetzer Hara if not for the constant inspiration of Guard, Elya, Jack, and the rest of you!

Yidden! Purim is around the corner, but we may all start drinking L'Chaim NOW!

Chazak V'Ematz to all of us!!!

Dear Mevakesh, this just shows again how some of us here are truly soul-mates.
Is it a "coincidence" that the last day of Jack's half a year fell out on the day my son was born? and that I made the Bracha of Hatov Ve'hameitiv on that day?
Is it a "coincidence" that I merited to make a Bris for my son today, on the very anniversary of your Teshuvah?
Is it a "coincidence" that I merited to make the Bracha "SheHechiyanu V'Kiyimanu V'Higiyanu Lazman Hazeh!" with such joy today?

Mazal Tov to you!! Mazal Tov to me!! Mazal Tov to Klal Yisrael!!

Mevakesh, I absolutely can't just go away from a post like that without replying. But I'm at a total loss for words. The Gemoroh in Megilah says, that if a word is worth a "selah" then silence is worth two. To you I stand in deafening silence and total awe!

Today, in addition to being the day of "the" bris and the day after your completing a year, is also a very crucial day for my son (as I posted elsewhere) please daven for him on this special day, please cry for his desperate neshomoh -bisoch shaar hadesperate neshomos biyisroel. Your Tefilah can make the difference! Thank you so very much!

Massive mazel tov for managing to come so far. You are a true example for the rest of us, who are still battling it out with the y"h. It feels great knowing we have a true warrior at our side- your presence alone is a massive boost to our morale!

Mevakesh:

  You should be zocheh to be clean of sin your entire life, just like a 1 year old.

Yosefyakov,

first of all, welcome to the forum! May Hashem be with ou always.

As far as me, as long as Hashem gives me the Koach, I will be a part of this "Bais HaMikdash" and will try my best to help as many of our brothers and sisters as I can.

We must stick together, and be there for one another if we want Mashiach to finally come!

Chazak V'Ematz!
