This post along with several of the ones I have been sharing lately were written within the first year of me being a blogger. I’m still unsure which is the best way to share an older post like this without losing the “stats” that go with it.
Sadly, I must say that the masturbation still occurs periodically and with the same effect…guilt.
I have found it quite amazing here lately that people ask me how I can talk so openly about my porn addiction and my feelings I had in reference to sex and my body. But what bothers me the most is when they ask me how I can talk to or hang out with a certain type of person. They are judging them based on choices that the person has made in their life and not the fact that the person I am talking, counseling or hanging with is a sinner that needs God’s grace just like I did. And just like the person who asked me that stupid question. I really just want to look them in the eye and say well I am talking to you to right now, what’s the difference?
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

Catie gives us a powerful and honest look into the world of women who struggle with pornography and masturbation.
So much in this post spoke to me, but this ““Girls don’t struggle with that stuff.” And that’s a big fat freaking lie. It’s lies like these that prevent confession, cheating women of the freedom they could experience in overcoming this sin. Because when we experience the freedom to confess even the darkest of our darkness, we can fight together. We don’t want to struggle well, we want to QUIT THE STRUGGLE, putting the sin to death and chasing after the redemption story Jesus writes for us daily. And God has designed us to do that TOGETHER” is the truth! And as long as people, especially the church, think women do not struggle then true freedom can not be had.
IT’S NOT JUST A MANS STRUGGLE!
I wonder if I’m a girl you’d think struggles with sex.
Isn’t that what we all wonder? Maybe it’s not sex, pornography, or even masturbation, but you struggle secretly with a dark sin and wonder if others would ever guess. For me though?
It’s sex. Or at least it has been for several years. Sometimes I feel like I’ve finally overcome it, but then I fall short again and my heart sinks and the insecurities come crashing in just to remind me of how disgusting I am.
The first time I watched pornography, I was in 4th grade. I was 9 years old. And it wasn’t even on purpose, it was a total accident that I couldn’t turn away from. I hadn’t even had a period yet, or even knew what the heck it was. And there I was, learning all about what I needed to look like to…

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 This verse is… Continue reading God Is Faithful To Give Us A Way Out
In the book of Matthew, chapters 5 through 7, are often referred to collectively as the "Sermon on the Mount". As I read this sermon in its entirety, I am struck by how Jesus set a higher standard for righteousness than the mere letter of the Law of Moses. To Jesus, it wasn't enough to… Continue reading What Is Purity Of Heart Worth To You?
