Do you think a person can live without sex or masturbation?
Many people have lived very fulfilling lives without sex, including Jesus. Chastity does not mean mutilation, innocence does not mean ignorance and desires are not needs.
"I take great care of myself by carefully shutting myself away."
What felt to be permanent
Washed over me.
Cut people off like
I will trust in God alone,
If anything left over,
I will trust that the sun
Will burn for the Son
And that the morning bird song
Is always his praise.
Every fleeting love,
Be made as a carpet,
For the love that walked
Upon this earth, my soil.
As long as your heart is still beating, it’s never too late. God is a Savior. He will always rescue. No matter how far you’ve gone, He’s ready to start bringing you back.
"He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on the solid ground and steadied me as I walked along" (Psalm 40:2, NLT)
Do you feel like you are in a pit today? That pit can be frustration or disappointment or a feeling of discouragement, despair, or hopelessness. And maybe you can’t see a way out, but you’ve got to know that God is still with you, and He will make a way where there seems to be no way.
Remember, God will never waste anything you go through in life. If you’ll keep the right attitude, He’ll turn that situation around for your good. It doesn’t matter how you got there, whether it was by your own poor choices or maybe someone else treated you unfairly, God wants to use that situation to do a work in you. He’ll take that evil and turn it around for your good. You may be uncomfortable at times, but you’ve got to know you are growing, and God is building your character.
Today, make the decision to shake off any negative, self-defeating mindsets. Choose to cooperate with God. Trust that He is preparing you for promotion. As you keep an attitude of faith, expectancy, and thanksgiving, He will lift you up and set you on the solid path of victory He has in store for you!
