Prayer is appreciated. I hope I am not the only girl going through this. Would be really glad to have a sister or brother be there to talk to.
I am struggling with lust and having thoughts. I am a 16-year-old high school junior. Ever since 4th grade, I had this addiction to hump on pillows and have an orgasm. I feel so embarrassed and ashamed. I don't give out my identity because I'm scared people will make fun of me. I never told anyone this because of how embarrassing it is.Right now, I'm struggling with thoughts from a guy who is 8 years older than me... I have a crush on him but I know I shouldn't let anyone know because of our age difference.
maybe something on www.settingcaptivesfree.com would help you.. there are some good courses.. I should say, check them out!
Give everything to Jesus. You can't overcome through your strength. Only through His power and the Precious Blood that He shed. Surrender everything to Him and ask for His strength to resist the temptations.
Will definitely pray for you, sis. Things like lust are hard to deal with, but if you pray to Jesus about it, I'm sure you will feel the comfort of his hands. Try this: Everytime you have a thought like that or an urge, react with a prayer to the Lord to help you out. He truly understands what you are going through and you can open up to Him completely. God Bless you for being honest and looking for an answer and a change to your life! ^^ It won't be easy, but I believe that if you are determined to change, then things will be better for you. :)
I commend you for trusting us enough to share that; I know it's not easy to open up and share our dark secrets. I don't honestly think I can add anything to what the others have said. Definitely ask God to help you and lean on Him for strength. You can't do it alone.I would say that whenever you have any lustful thoughts or any impure desires, take it to God, and saturate yourself in His word.As for the guy, honestly you are too young for him at this point, but an eight-year gap doesn't have to be a bad thing--I'm dating a man six years my senior, but the difference is that I am an adult (nineteen). Whatever you do, LEAN ON GOD!!! He can guide you through anything, if you will allow Him.
Hey, I know I'm a guy and your post was aimed at girls, but I just wanted you to know that I'm praying for you! I have struggled with staying pure as well so I know how you feel, I think Sarah said it best. if you ever want to talk, you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
@Gabriella I checked out that site a little. I'm still struggling... A few minutes ago I did it on the pillow again. I'm recording the date of when I do it. It's been like this for years... It turns on and off. I don't want this to be a bad addiction because I want to save all this sexual thoughts and pleasures for my husband.@Kingskid, Ericka, Sarah I will definitely pray more and keep on coming near to God so that He will deliver me from this. I'm just so worried that something bad may happen with my body. I didn't tell any of he female youth leaders about this at my church since I don't want anyone to know I hump on pillows. It would be so humiliating.@Matt I'm glad to have you comment on my forum. Of course this is the kind of thing to talk about to members of the same gender but I'm glad to have a brother in Christ pray for me. Would you please share to me how God helped you when you had to deal with lust?
@masked girl, I haven't done a course on it personally, but my friends did. one was a boy and one a girl. I must say, it really helped her. for her the addiction was to look in magazines and read all things about sex and lust and things like that. as far as I know it helped her. check it out again and make sure you'll be helped with it or not!;)
@masked girl Honestly I still struggle with it, but I've gotten a lot better at fighting it. When I get tempted some of the things I do, I pray, I try to think of other things, I get into God's Word each and every day which is crucial I think because when you don't get into the word daily, it's easier to get tempted. And don't put yourself in a position where you know you'll get tempted. Still praying for you sister!!!
