"Manning up is not just managing your sexual temptation It's not just managing your sin, that's not what it means to be a man, because you can try harder and you can do better and you can hang on longer, that's not manning up. Manning up is our ability to lay down all of our effort and all of our trying, and all of our strength,and say I trust in Jesus, I trust in His perfection, I trust in His power, I trust in His resurrection, because He's the only one that can get me through this, and He's the only one that can make me free"

Getting Help

One of the hardest things for me to learn in recovery was to get help. The adversary will tell you that reaching out for help is the LAST thing you want to do, but it is where healing begins. Being a man of courage is not isolating yourself (see left), but reaching out for help.
