In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared with me. This episode is, “I am addicted to self pity!”
Addiction is an awful state to be in (no matter whether it is caused by choices, brain chemistry, traumatic events, or any other catalyst). The perception of being unable to control yourself is frightening and destructive. Whether it is food, finance, romance, substances, or any other issue it is a scary place to be to struggle for control of yourself. Some advise you to ceed control to others (people and/ or entities), others advise you to take control (“get yourself together!”). We explore questions and share perspectives and potential solutions on this show so I encourage you to do so for yourself. What is the best way for someone to handle an addiction to their own thoughts of self-pity?
pit·y - “a strong feeling of sadness or sympathy for someone or something” (Merriam-Webster)
self–pity - “a feeling of pity for yourself because you believe you have suffered more than is fair or reasonable” (Merriam-Webster)
What is fair or reasonable for a person to suffer? Why should you not be burdened by pain? Why should you visit your pain on other people (which now causes more pain for them)? Let’s delve into this murky mess of self-pity addicts.
In walking through the 7 Steps to Freedom From Oppression, self pity is something that the Devil will constantly try to draw you into. So many times we have seen it sabotage the most courageous and persistent. What is self pity? How do you recognize the 'symptoms'. Is it demonic? What are the effects of it on you? Today we want to expose this danger for what it really is.
To access the study notes on self-pity used in today's program go to:
We've all felt sorry for ourselves from time to time. Many people in the Bible did also, so this is not some abnormal experience. The most successful of people have times of self pity. Why is feeling sorry for yourself so dangerous spiritually? Have you checked up on yourself to see how often you do this? Self pity makes the soul sick. And may lead to suicide. People oppressed with depression for years get this habit and don't even realize it. Working on the book, "7 Steps to Freedom" with Pat Buckley, he emphasizes over and over the danger of self pity. I felt the need to address this spiritual problem directly. If you don't ever feel sorry for yourself, listen and learn to help someone else.
Have you ever felt sorry for yourself? I am sure you have at one time or another. This is a show to help you overcome that old self-pity trick of the inner woman/ man. We will diiscuss God's ways to help you get out of long term self - pity. We will look at the people in the Old Testament and New Testament to determine ways that God help them to get out of their sicknesses of self - pity and to anaylize some of God's strategies to help us get out of self-pity in relation to people of the bible. Moreover, we will see how they reached their potential development to be just what God wanted them to be. Finally, we will see God's strategy to help you reach your dreams and your goals in order for you to be joyful and happy.

Welcome to “Lets Talk Call-in Bible Study” for today’s issues. Does the bible have answers for what ails us? If the bible is our answer, then why do we look elsewhere to solve our problems? Why do we profess faith, yet wallow in doubt and self pity?
Our topic for this session: Intercession: Our Will vs. God’s Will
We will be looking at Genesis 19: 15- 29, the story of Lot and his family being pulled out of Sodom and Gomorrah.
We look forward to your participation, input, and fellowship.
Frank and Blondie Clayton
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
And the angels who kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Genesis 6:4, Jude 1:6
GOD HAD REPEATEDLY COMMANDED DIFFERENT LEADERS OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL, GODLY MEN, MIGHTY MEN OF GREAT FAITH AND VALOR, TO UTTERLY DESTROY CERTAIN NATIONS AND WIPE THEM OUT ENTIRELY.
NOT SPARING, HAVING PITY, OR SHOWING MERCY. WOMAN, CHILD, CATTLE, ASSESS AND OXEN.
THE WHOLE HUMAN GENO AND ANIMAL RACE WAS POLLUTED AND CORRUPTED.
FLESHLY, WORLDLY LUSTS OF THE EYES AND FLESH. THE NEPHILIM, WATCHERS, FALLEN ANGELS OR DEMONS WERE SEDUCING HUMANS INTO REBELLION, IMMORALITY, MAGIC, ARTS, WEAPONTRY, MASSONRY, IDOLATRY AND SPIRITUAL DECEPTION.
DEPRAVED WEAK HUMAN HEARTS WERE ALSO LUSTING AFTER STRANGE FLESH. THE EARTH HAD GOTTEN SO CORRUPT AND FULL OF VIOLENCE IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, THAT GOD WAS GRIEVED THAT HE EVER MADE MAN, AND SET OUT TO DESTROY THE ENTIRE POPULATION.
BEASTIALITY AND HOMOSEUALITY;
"YOU SHALL NOT LIE WITH A MALE AS ONE LIES WITH A FEMALE. IT IS AN ABOMINATION.
ALSO YOU SHALL NOT HAVE INTERCOURCE WITH ANY ANIMAL TO BE DEFILED WITH IT. NOR SHALL ANY WOMAN STAND BEFORE AN ANIMAL TO MATE WITH IT.
IT IS PERVERSION. DO NOT DEFILE YOURSELVES BY ANY OF THESE THINGS.
FOR BY ALL THESE THE NATIONS WHICH I AM CASTING OUT BEFORE YOU HAVE BECOME DEFILED."

Every day Frank meets his challenges, and is fueled with a passion to help others with his engaging, creative manner which is awe inspiring to everyone he meets.
