Darkness & Light.
Foolishness & Wisdom.
Lies & Truth.
Hell & Heaven.
Yes, all are OPPOSITES. I could hardly bring myself to put the two words together in the title!
We are doing a series with our youth on sexual purity and Biblical dating. It is something we should be addressing on a regular basis. I volunteered to take the girls when we separate them for teaching. Our first one took place last night and was entitled "What You Take In". I was asked to get hold of a Cosmo magazine and teen magazines to look into the content...for greater understanding of the battle.
When I was looking at the cover of the magazine, my heart was so grieved, I felt nauseated. I decided I could not spend $5 on a magazine with such disturbing headlines on the cover. As always God honors our commitment to stay true to Him. I mentioned my dilemma to my Bible study girls, and it so happened that one of them had received a copy in the mail for no apparent reason, so she gave it to me. Yay God!
Ladies, the magazine's mission can only be for making money! Why else would they encourage women to become pieces of meat? THEY LITERALLY DO! They hold nothing back in making girls out to be "prey" and men to be animals! It was actually stated in an article in the March '09 issue entitled, "The New Attitude That Drives Men Wild". It was a half page article that ended in encouraging girls not to hold back too long or the guy would leave. ARGHHHH! I thought, "Who is this author and what does she think she is doing?" Does she know that one day she will have to give an account to God for what she has written! Lord, have mercy on her!!
Molly Fahner, if you read this, please know that God will forgive you for this if you repent! You are being used to bring girls into sin and deep places of pain and grief! Stop! Turn around and go the other way!! Before it is too late! I pray you will come to know the dignity that God designed for you and it is never too late to be restored. If you are living a lifestyle like what you are encouraging with your writing, no doubt your heart is hurting~you are deeply wounded. Jesus can heal it! He can and He will. Just ask Him and His other girls! Open arms await the repentant heart...
The battle for the souls of young girls and boys is increasing strength with the availability of picture texts and internet access on their phones. Believe it or not, middle school girls are involved in taking inappropriate photos of themselves to send through their phones. Boys caught looking @ p*rn. Mama's!! Be alert! Watch what is going on! Even if you are a homeschool mom, please be aware of the needs of the peers of your children~the cultural perversion. The behavior of their peers affects their future. We must be in prayer for our country & our youth.
God created girls with a deep desire to be cherished and beautiful. He means for them to be fulfilled within the boundaries He has given us in His word. The allurements of the culture only bring us into deeper despair. What our culture encourages is outside the safety of the laws of God who created us! The results being depression, cutting, suicide, anxiety, alcoholism, anger, violence, drug use and abuse, etc.
Oh that people would know the Love of God, the goodness of God, who gave His Word for our well~being. To find refuge, fulfillment and love in His arms!
Where is the fulfillment we long for? Jesus.
Where is the Joy, Peace, Love? Jesus.
Our fulfillment is in His love, and care, and the very life He gave for us to be restored to Him.
One man + One woman = One beautiful plan! Follow the instructions in The Book, and you will find fulfillment The Creator's way!!
