Back in February of this year I said I was taking a month off of blogging. It is now September and I don’t think I am anywhere close to coming back.

I learned shortly before announcing my sabbatical that my wife had an online affair with a guy thousands of miles away. Since then I have tried to work things out with her but unfortunately she just wants to end things all together. I cannot go into further detail than that right now. I covet your prayers. Especially for her salvation and repentance and the well-being of our two young children.

I must confess that though I still believe everything I have written on here, the extreme difficulties of the past few months have led me to return to my addiction to pornography. As of now I have completely disabled anything on my phone, iPad, and computer that could possibly give me access to lustful images. I am also seeking counsel from many many wise people around me. I hope to someday pick up where I left off with the blog series, but I think God has much to teach me before then.

Grace and Peace,
Peter Daniel James

    I could quote bible verses for you: 1John 1:9, Ps 51:10-12 and a whole lot of other verses. I could tell you everything you’ve mentioned in your blog.
    Ultimately, it is only God that can save us from sin. I would however, pray that God sustains and uphold you and yours during this “time”. I pray that He makes His dwelling place in your hearts, your home and your house. I pray that the stronghold of lust be utterly dismantled and its grip upon you be loosened in Jesus name and you be set free.
    If the Lord does not build the house, they build in vain that build it….
    Only the Eternal God can turn impossible situations around and do the impossible. It is when we are at our wit’s end that He comes in and makes a miracle of our life. Your marriage is definitely not difficult for Him. He will build your broken home back for you again.
    Keep your focus on Him. Always find your way back to Him. Always. God bless you and keep you and your house.

    Wow Peter I didn’t know this was going on. I remember being in group with you and looking up to you as a great example of someone trying so hard to follow Christ. I am confident you are even stronger in Christ now than you were before. God bless and keep running the race.
