Purity Forsaken, part 2
Continuation of thoughts from previous post:
….It is a battle no one but God knows you’re fighting. And possibly no other human will ever value, because they view you as foolish….You’re the butt of nearly every joke!
Yet it’s one battle more intimately tied to your walk w/God than perhaps any other, because our “sexuality” is a proclamation of the very nature of God himself….
So you keep turning away from TV, billboards, conversations, checkout lanes, commercials, books, movies, even friends….maybe even family. Without any “praise,” but the Proverbs 31 woman (as an example to me) does GOOD to her husband and not harm, ALL the days of her life. Even before she has met him.
And if she never meets him? She has honored God with her body; and tended the garden of her heart and mind….
I remind myself it is not a Lonely thing if the garden is the Lord’s.
