In Lust, We Trust

September 1, 2011 Comments Off on In Lust, We Trust

For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. 1 John 2:16

I think the major problem facing this generation and the next upcoming is the desire to want to feel pleasure rather than pain. To feel love rather than rejection.

Guys are unwilling to pursue girls because they are afraid of being rejected. So, they wait for the girls to feel the pressure of pursing them- taking the easy, pain free way out.

A girl pursing a guy means you’re not trusting God enough to provide the right one for you. If any guy ever makes you pursue him, he is not the one for you because he does not respect you enough to come after you. There’s a difference between falling for a guy and falling into a guy.

We like to trust our bodies over our hearts. We like to trust the laws of physical attraction over spiritual attraction. In lust we trust.

But here is the important thing to understand: When you’re trusting in lust you are setting up your relationship to last for a season and not a lifetime. Because you’re going to reach the physical point that you’ve been so vigorously chasing and get there and realize just how shallow your feelings are for that person.

Ladies…

Find a guy that is willing to pursue you, willing to put his reputation out there to go after you. So what if he’s not looking at you, don’t give in- a man must pursue a woman. The more skin you show isn’t going to make him want to pursue you for any good reasons. At the end of the day, the woman you outwardly reflect is going to be the man that you attract. If you want a God-fearing, committed relationship than exemplify that in your own life first.

Guys…

Stop being a bunch of self-centered wimps and chase after the girl you know you deserve. So what if she rejects you, at least you are enough of a man to put yourself out there. A woman is looking for a man that is willing to make sacrifices for her and the relationship, so you pursing her until she says stop is a major sign of maturity on your part.

There is no relationship that you do not deserve. It does not matter how much you have messed up in your past. Why? He takes away your burden. He repairs and heals you, nobody is set apart from the power that God has to heal you. There is no standard or qualification. Apart from God we are all undeserving of even our lives, but with Him we are called to a greater, grace filled life!
