We are not the lies we were taught. We are not the mistakes we’ve made. We are not the sexual dysfunction we experience. We are children of the Living God.
There is something they never tell you
About the nature of love
Perhaps it is divine
Or sent from above
Most embrace the mystery
Laughing joyfully as they go
But some resist temptation
And fight to keep control
Not all understand this
But those who do will know
The more you deny the feeling
The stronger it will grow
An inferno rages within
Of heaven, madness, and sin
And everything that has ever been
On top of this volcano you’ll see
Everything I’ve ever professed to be
And that my freedom is not reality
Smoldering ashes grace the sky
Rage and anger keep me alive
By blood and ink I will survive
Your sweet attempts to pull me back
Will prompt the monster to attack
Due to the words that I lack
I won’t speak because I know
The truth that boils just below
To keep you from it I will go
My husband asked me to talk about how to ask a girl out without seeming creepy. Here is my advice!
“Secular culture tells us that, before we enter into marriage, we need to ‘try’ each other out sexually. This culture has a large focus on love in connection with sex and attraction. On the flip-side, legalistic purity culture often dictates that marriage is more about obligation, and some facets even claim that love is only a choice as opposed to a feeling.
In this episode, Rebecca seeks to unite what each culture gets right about sex and love while dispelling the incorrect and faulty assumptions found on both sides.”
