Thoughts

As You Wait…

Trust in the Lord and do good,

Dwell in His presence and enjoy His word,

Take delight in the Lord,

He will fulfill you,

Commit your ways, emotions, and desires to the Lord,

Trust in Him and He will do this:

He will make your reward shine like the dawn,

Your knight in shining armor like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord,

Wait patiently for Him;

Don’t fret when everyone else gets married before you,

Using manipulation and wicked schemes…

Not by works! But by His strength

After I became a Christian, I stumbled A LOT. I would masturbate at night and wake up feeling real guilty about it. I’d scrub myself with hot water in an attempt to clean up the guilt or wash away the sin… But I couldn’t.

I kept listening to the devil, condemning me, torturing me, making fun of me… I thought, maybe if I work so hard in the church I might find forgiveness. Or if I be good for an amount of time, God will overlook my sin…

But all that was a cat and mouse game. They were lies that Satan kept putting in my head to distract me, so I may not see the greater picture, a loving father waiting patiently for me, to embrace me, to satisfy me.

Then I read Ephesians 2:8-9,

For by Grace you have been saved through Faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the Gift of God, NOT OF WORKS lest anyone should boast.

And I cried. I cried because of all the lies I had bought. I cried for all the hurt I put myself through, trying to buy my own salvation, which I never could.

And then I was filled with Joy. Because I have a gift, given to me by my heavenly father, which is salvation through Christ. I never deserved it, but by His Grace, it was made available to me, so that I receive it by faith.

Now I am free to run into God’s presence, with boldness, asking for forgiveness and receiving it fully.

Amen.

Don’t let the devil weigh you down anymore, talk to God, don’t hide because He is always there with you, waiting.

Made in the Image of God

Satan uses lies to distort our perception of self, God, and others. He is at work disconnecting mankind (the creation) from God (the creator) there by destroying the honor given to man having been made in God’s inage and subsequently, the purpose of mankind.

Sher Pai

For years, I have struggled with finding my identity. I tried hanging around the cool kids at school, doing drugs and alcohol, having sex, relationships, but nothing seemed to work out.

I kept hearing people talk about being self-made, or the usual ‘you need a good dose of self-esteem’ crap. I had tried all that, but why did I still feel empty?

Because I bought into the lies of Satan. Just like Eve, Satan made me believe that God was with holding something from me. Something I could only find outside of Him. But that wasn’t true! You see we all are made in the image of God! We all can have a relationship with God. We all have a purpose and a mission on Earth!

Then I got saved. But I kept listening to Satan’s lies, that I am worthless. I am a failure. Everybody and everything around me tried to shape my identity, I had a vision of who I wanted to be, what I wanted to do, but all this was so short of what God wanted for me, What He wanted me to become.

God has given us authority. He gave us the breath of life. He made us in His image. He loves us. He wants us. He says we are worth it. He sent His son to come die for us, to free us from the bondage and lies of Satan. He wants a relationship with us.

Let’s stop listening to what Satan, society, our parents, our friends have to say about us, let’s listen to God. Who He says we are.

Remember You are made in God’s image.

Genesis 1 and 2.

WHEN THE EARTHLY MIRROR OF YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS BROKEN…

I don’t have enough words to express how deeply this relates to me.

I WAS WRETCHED

Biblically speaking, our earthly fathers have been given the incredible responsibility to reflect our heavenly father. They are designed to love us, lead us, protect us, nurture us, provide for us, be there for us, discipline us, love, honor, nourish and cherish our mothers, the list goes on and on…

Above all, they are supposed to bring us up in the ways of the Lord and show us a true picture of God by imitating Him. Sadly, that’s not the case for most people. Often they are the ones that lead us astray or hurt us deeply.

So, when the earthly mirror of your heavenly father is broken and the reflection of your earthly father shows you the exact opposite of what your heavenly father looks like, when he hurts you deeply or disappoints you constantly, never let that make you doubt the goodness of your heavenly father by reminding…

Welcome!

So, I finally wrote! I have been dreading to post something here for a couple weeks now.

As I was starting this blog, I kept asking the Lord to guide me on what to write. I have been tempted (a lot!) Over the past weeks, and sometimes I have jumped into sin and other times the Lord just swooped in.

I wanted to first thank you for being here and for choosing to walk in sexual purity. It is NOT EASY. It is not in our sinful nature as humans to please God, but Christ’s work in us.

I am NOT pure. I have not lived a life of purity. I have created this blog more for me as it is for you. I know I am prone to my fleshly pleasures because that was my authority before, and I know I need accountability.

I would like to have you on my journey in sexual purity and what God says about sex, marriage, relationships…. Everything.

I am human. I get things wrong and yes, sometimes I hurt people. Please if anything I post is NOT in line with God’s word, feel free to mention in the comments.

Once again, welcome to my blog and stay tuned for my next blog piece… 😉
