If you are a young woman reading this blog, I pray you can find understanding in why men are given to vitriolic rants about women and the lies they're living.
Young women have been lied to just as much as young men. Feminism is a bitter poison that has infiltrated our society, our churches and our homes.
If you are a young woman who has bought the lie. If you have given your virginity to a man who isn't your husband. If you have believed that sexual promiscuity is an expression of strength and independence, I urge you to repent of your sins. Ask for forgiveness from your Savior, Jesus Christ. Turn away from those lies. Move on in obedience to God's word.
I know you. I lived it.
I am a living, breathing, very blessed, victory story of what can become of the lost and the broken. I indulged in sexual sin to the extent that I should have been unworthy of any blessing in life. I know what self loathing is. I know what it is to give sex in exchange for attention. I know what it is to give sex in exchange for anything that would validate my self worth and would wake up to disgust, worthlessness, and rejection. I know what it is to live in rebellion and denial of its consequences.
You are not alone.
But you are responsible.
However, here's the deal. You can, right now, change. You can repent. You can be forgiven. You can go and sin no more. You can heal. And, you can enter into a relationship with your Savior.
All that you have been seeking can be found in your relationship with God who loves you.
You have come to know that the validation you feel of a guy's arms around you is only temporary. It's temporary and it can not sustain your need. Your emptiness is not because of your lack of a man, who isn't your husband. Your emptiness comes from the lie. Your emptiness is because of your rebellion. What is empty within you can only be filled with the grace you will know when you've gone to the Lord, asked for forgiveness and repented of your sins.
I pray for you, that you go from Broken Into Beautiful:
She’s smiling on the outside
But she’s hurting on the inside
It’s getting hard just living anymore
And the shadows she has clung to
Painful things that she has been through
Have left her feeling worthless, Lord… but
You change worthless into precious
Guilty to forgiven
Hungry into satisfied
Empty into full
All the lies are shattered
And we believe we matter
When You change broken into beautiful
We live with accusations
Sometimes heavy expectations
That tell us we can never measure up
And yet You repeat with mercy
That in your eyes we are worthy
At last we see how much we’re loved cause
Though we can’t see how we can stand before you Lord
And feel valued, priceless and adored
