A Verse in my Head


Prayers and Promises

I woke up this morning and Holy Spirit gave me some breakfast.

“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Guess He knew I would need that today. Especially after:

Whatever reasons you have for this – be it a conservative upbringing, incorrect church doctrine, gossip among friends that led you feel ashamed and embarrassed – we usually don’t talk about God and sex as a single topic. And even as I am typing this, I know that I am walking into a mine field – because I am new to this way of thinking, because I have so much to learn, so much growth to still happen, and I feel like I am so far from the ideal.
