I sometimes hear members refer to their daily lust temptations as ‘Grateful Reminders’... that they are grateful for these reminders... I couldn't understand why I should be grateful for my daily lust struggles!
Then I asked one such member after a meeting. He explained: “If I did not get these daily reminders that I have an incurable disease, I would forget that I have to take the daily medicine of the programme. Eventually, inevitably, I would act out - tomorrow, next week or next month. As long as I get these Grateful Reminders I continue taking my daily medicine and have another day free of acting out.”
