"Everything is permissible for me" - 
but not everything is beneficial. 
"Everything is permissible for me" - 
but I will not be mastered by anything.
I Corinthians 6:12

Is there something in your life that is allowed by God, but is not benefitting you right now? In fact, it's down-right destructive because it seems to control you...your thoughts, your actions, your attitudes? What is it in your life (not your husband's or friend's)?

Let's repent (turn away) from whatever it is and ask God for help over this area in our life. Then let's ask for the filling of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22 tells us a fruit of the Spirit is self-control. I love how God doesn't just leave us hanging with our own "gumption" to do better. He equips us. 

So, whenever we're confronted with this "permissible" thing but know it's not good for us, let's talk to God about it every single time and get his strength and power to just say no to it.
