Im so broken. i need christ.i need love
Heidy ho, neighbor!
You know, lust is not an easy thing to avoid being tempted from. Especially if you were before or are still finding yourself captive to pornography.
But there’s good news for you tonight, and that good news is that the fight that you are in has already been won because Jesus has already overcome it all.
And all you need to do is chase hard after God’s heart and ask for His help.
If God tells you to put your relationship on hold for a few months because He wants to work in your life, then do it.
It doesn’t matter what you’re girlfriend says, listen and do what God tells you to do and all will go right. And if she breaks it off with you because she can’t “wait” for you, then she’s not the one that God has for you. And if she is the one that God has for you but still breaks it off, then God will bring her back into your life within His perfect timing.
And last, trust in God with all your heart kid, it’s with the cool kids do.
the rest will all just fall into place.
Anonymous asked: Hi, it's the first time I'm posting a request on tumblr but I don't know what to do anymore. I'm a 20 yr old girl, and i have been masturbating for as long as I can remember, maybe 10 years. I've been trying so hard to break free, but I keep falling back in. I need someone to pray for me, and I don't think I'll ever have the guts to tell a leader or anyone at all, so if I may ask, could you pray for me, please? I'm so devastated right now, and I'm desperate for a breakthrough. Thank you so much
The reason why you can’t break free is because you’re trying to do it alone. What you need to do is pray and ask God for help. Only He can set you free. What you have is a bondage. Masturbation is a Bondage.
When you pray, pray with the authority that Christ has given you. (Luke 9:1, 2). Pray in Jesus in name, He has already set you free all sin. Declare in His name that you are free His blood has set you free..
Prayer is a very powerful weapon. One of the main reasons as to why you keep falling into this sin is because you feel tied to it . I tell you right now that you are not. Declare in Jesus name, sin you have no power over me. I pray you may be filled with His holy spirit.
Jesus, I pray you give her Boldness and faith. Lord, I pray you destroy all the chains in her life. Give her the self control only you CAN give her.
Anon, when you feel tempted to fall into this sin, pray. When you start feeling thoughts that you know are not of yours (that lead you to masturbate) pray, ask God for strength to fight. He will give you the strength you need. He will help you fight this battle. You are not alone, God is with you.. and He wants you to be free. Fight off sin with the word. Read your bible and when you feel tempted quote scripture.
Read through our tags on temptation and masturbation.
God Bless you anon.
Anonymous asked: What is wrong with spending time alone? As long as you aren't going to have sex... things like cuddling and kissing are okay, right? They are normal and God put the desire for companionship in us. Sex is meant for marriage but up to kissing seems innocent... right? I mean I doubt I'm as well versed as you as I've not been a Christian for long but there is a big difference between sex and kissing/cuddling.
The reason why we tell you guys and gals to not be alone together is because we’re trying to help you avoid situations where temptation can arise and lead you to fall into sin.
As a Christian when you’re dating you really need to know your limits and set boundaries. Holding hands, kisses, and cuddling are all alright in my book provided that they do not accelerate into a situation of temptation or lust.
Anonymous asked: "All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name." (Acts 10:43) So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:12-13) -for the person dealing with lust.
Anonymous asked: guys tell me a verse that would help me in the process???.... by the way thanks for reading,
YAHWEH. Our God. Our Saviour. Our Dad and King. seeing us. knowing us. knowing that we would fail Him time and time again. knowing that we would make a complete mess of things, still loved us enough in advanced to give what was most dearest to Him; His Son Jesus, to step down into this broken world of ours and to live a perfect life.. to live a perfect life and to die as a perfect sacrifice— to perfect some very imperfect people (you and me). and the bible says that in that moment, He did everything that He needed to be done, for everyone. and that is good news tonight for me and that is good news for you.
I want you to know that you are forgiven because you have asked to be forgiven.
You see, God’s grace knows no end and above all, God knows your heart and He loves you dearly.
God knows that pornography isn’t an easy thing to overcome. And I strongly believe that God has already begun to work in you. He sees your heart and He sees your desire to change. And because of that, I tell you the truth tonight, God is very pleased with you and He loves you very much.
Pornography is a demonic spirit that builds its chains around a person— to forcefully pervert the perspective of God’s naturality. These chains act weeds and only live to suck the life out of you.
Chains can only be broken by God. but the good news is that God can and wants to break those chains off of you for forever.
So how can this be done?
The best thing you can do, is simply pray righteously and declare freedom persistently.
God gave you a voice that can speak life or death. (Proverbs 18:21) And God gave you authority over demons (Matthew 4:10). You need to rebuke, tie, bind and reprimand the enemy away from your life and strongly command it to depart from your life and from your home. It’s important that you put on your full spiritual armor day in and day out (Ephesians 6:10-18) and cover yourself with the blood of Christ Jesus. Also, declare yourself as free from anything that is adultery or lust or pornographic.
The enemy came only to steal. kill. and destroy. (John 10:10). He desperately wants us to fall away from God’s plan, and so he’ll do anything possible to get us to fall. Recognize the who’s and how’s and when’s for how the enemy tempts you into sinning.
You gotta be on your game and read God’s word and know His word. When Satan tempted Jesus in desert, Jesus used scripture to overcome Satan’s temptations. (Matthew 4:1-11) This shows us that scripture knowledge is needed to be able to overcome temptation. It also tells us that when we know and study the word, it stays in our thoughts (pure thinking) righteous living.
I hate to say it, but the enemy is going to tempt you and attack you like crazy. He knows that you want to live a life that pleases God, and that simply angers him. The trials are going to be hard for a few weeks (James 4:7) but if you stay focused on God, read His word daily, rid yourself from anything and anyone that is going to be a road block, throw away anything that provokes sexual thoughts, listen to deep worship music and awesome praise and above all, ask God for strength, for guidance and for wisdom. Have faith, trust in the Big Guy Upstairs and believe that you are free. By your faith, it will come to be.
Stay strong. and take heart in J E S U S. because H E has overcome it all. (John 16:33)
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
- Romans 8:31

Anonymous asked: help me please!! some guy is telling me that I should I lose my virginity bc there's nothing wrong with it and I'm missing out on pleasure. when I tell him I don't want to bc of religion he starts saying that God will forgive me and I should just live a little. also that I wouldn't regret it if I did it with someone special. I need help defending myself, ideas?!?!
That kid doesn’t know what he’s talking about. From the little that you’ve told me about him, I see that:
- He really doesn’t care about God or his relationship with Jesus. He also lets himself be used by the enemy.
- He doesn’t care about you or other people.
- And finally, He definitely does not care about himself nor does He truly value his life/salvation.
“Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” John 14:21
“Stay on the path that the LORD your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.” Deuteronomy 5:33
“And to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:27
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8
“Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” Matthew 16:33
You are the church. The church isn’t building, it’s you. And God is coming back to look for a church that stands in purity. You need to put your armor on, cover yourself with the blood of Christ Jesus and pray for a liberation for those who are used by the enemy.
In the end, this guy that’s talking to you.. he can’t save you. Only Jesus can.
So, who are you going to listen to?
Anonymous asked: I'm so happy I'm following your blog c: Fighting some really brutal temptations right now btw. ILY!! xoxo and ofc God bless you guys! c:
YOU’RE RAD! TOO RAD!!! RADTASTIC!!!!
NO scratch that…. BOMBTASTIC!
Thanks so much for the follow, we will always and forever throw up all glory to the BIG Guy upstairs, He keeps everything in order for us hah and we’d be nothing without Him. :D
Temptation can be pretty hard to get through sometimes, but the more you ask Jesus for help, stay in the spirit, and keep eating that stellar spiritual fruit the easier it gets to resist temptation. UH. Kind of think of it like pac-man!! LMBO YOU GOTTA HEAR ME OUT ON THIS!!
You know when pac-man eats the really huge dots and then he can eat all the ghosts up. YUP. That’s exactly how it is when you stay in the spirit! When you do get those powerups (reading the bible, meditating on the Word, praising and worshiping God, sharing the epic(good) news, and so on) you’ll be able to punch demons in the face! But remember that just one power up in the pac-man game…. it doesn’t last forever so you have to keep going to get that power up. BUT unlike pac-man we have more then 4 power ups in our life we have an abundance of power ups!! SO GO ON AND POWER ON! \m/
Man, I really want to go play pac-man now.. LMBO!
alium asked: My boyfriend and I are both Christians, and we're both abstinent; we're waiting until marriage. We're thinking about moving in an apartment together, but I've heard someone say that it's "sinful" for unmarried couples to live together even if they're not doing anything sexual. What's your opinion?
Wholly poop! That’s so rad that you and you’re boyfriend are waiting until marriage! What an awesome choice! I for one would never recommend or give the green flag for someone to live with their boyfriend or girlfriend alone in a house, apartment, or any living establishment. Now hear me out. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone not because it’s sinful, but because it could lead you to fall into sin, or someone else to fall into sin. Saying you’re going to stay abstinent and actually staying abstinent are two different things.
Why open the doors to temptation? God tells us to run from temptation. (1 Corinthians 6:18)
Also, there are some people that know you as a christian girl and you’re boyfriend as a christian guy. Some people without you knowing it might even look up to you as a christian role model, you know. When you’re a christian there’s always going to be non-christians waiting for you to mess up so they can call you out on it, so they can judge you.
Let’s say maybe you do move into an apartment with you’re boyfriend, and you both do in fact stay abstinent. Sure, you guys and God will know you didn’t fall into sin, but the secular view of an unmarried couple living together always relates to sexual things. Even though you might not like it and as I said before there are always eyes on you, people who look up to you as a christian (these people might not even talk to you, but still look up to you) and if they find out you’re living with you’re boyfriend they’re going to assume things. They might even think “well this Christian girl I know lives with her boyfriend.. why can’t I?” and this person might not even stay abstinent.
“Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.” - 1 Corinthians 8:13
Well that’s all I have to say. =)
I really hope you really think about this and pray about it.
Anonymous asked: Sometimes i think bad thoughts about God that arent my own and the more i try not to think them the more they come. It drives me crazy because i know they arent my own but i feel like im commiting a sin against the holy spirit that is unforgiveable. How do i get rid of them?
It’s all about self control!
Here a list of verses which will help you with that!
In comparison, self-control:
“Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.” Proverbs25:28 (NIV)
“Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.” Proverbs 16:32
Our responsibility to be self-controlled:
“Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:13
“So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.” 1 Thessalonians 5:6
“But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8
“But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:5
“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.” Colossians 3:5-8
“that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable,” 1 Thessalonians 4:4
Self-control is evidence of faith and the Holy Spirit in our lives:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
“Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters! Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger. 20 For human anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness… 26 If someone thinks he is religious yet does not bridle his tongue, and so deceives his heart, his religion is futile. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” James 1:19-20, 26-27
This verses show the importance of self control! Pray for grace and growth in this area!
And bring every thought at the feet of Jesus (2 Cor 10:5)
