Hi, I'm 12 years old and I masterbate. I hate the sin and I love God and until now I thought was enough to conquer this. But it's not. I told a trusted friend about it and he sends me encouraging and challenging texts which I think helps me a lot. Satan tries to tempt me everyday and most days I give in. I hate it. I just need some encouraging words to help me get through this and any advice would be helpful as well. God gives me signs everyday and he helps me to get through temptation. Just not 5 minutes ago, I have sky on my tv and I was on the tv guide and it just went straight to this Christian channel, I mean how much does God love us to do things like that! I think if He loves us so much and I let him down all the time, I feel like a bad friend. I want to make it up to God and myself.
