God loves you. He craves a close walk with you. If peradventure you are struggling with any of the things mentioned above ( and the list is by no means exhaustive), I beseech you in the name of Jesus Christ, and Lord, SWEEP IT AWAY. Clean up. Get ready to move up to higher ground. Apostle Paul says:
”Don’t you know that those doing such things have no share in the kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who live immoral lives, who are idol worshippers, adulterers or homosexuals – will have no share in his kingdom. Neither will thieves or greedy people , drunkards, slanderers or robbers: There was a time when some of you were just like that but now your sins are washed away and you are set apart for God, and he has accepted you because of what the Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit of our God have done for you” (1 Cor. 6:9 – 11 TLB)
