Help! I’m Buried Under An Avalanche of Lust!

by X3 on March 4th, 2014 in Students

[Editor’s note: Today’s post is taken from the book “Questions You Can’t Ask Your Mama About Sex” by Craig Gross and Mike Foster]

Question: There are a lot of attractive girls out there, and sometimes my mind wanders and I have unwanted fantasies about them. What can I do to curb the sexual thoughts I have about these girls?

Answer: The Bible says to take captive every thought. Even the Apostle Paul said he had to bring every thought into submission of God’s perspective–which may be of some comfort to us as we wrestle through this maze of social development.

As you recognize that the beauty of the opposite sex is a gift from God, refrain from fantasy. The enemy wants to keep the battle a mental one. Usually we are weak on the mental battlefield because it’s easy to slip by keeping our thoughts to ourselves.

We would suggest prayer and Bible reading, and maybe adding some of your favorite Christian music to the mix. Music can transform your environment as well as your emotions. Also, as you can imagine, it’s difficult to fantasize while singing about the love of Jesus. If this doesn’t help, ask a guy you trust to keep you accountable, really accountable.
