It’s been a couple months since I’ve talked about our journey with lust/pornography, so I wanted to do a quick update. We still have wounds to be healed and trust to continue to rebuild, but we are doing well and trusting God with all this. We feel like we have all preventive measures up to help as much as possible, but since it all comes down to a heart issue, that is where our focus is.
Our focus has been to grow in our relationships with Jesus, individually and as a couple. Growing in our relationship with Him looks a little diffenrent between the both of us, but we know we are both heading in that direction.
Our prayer life has also really improved, especially as a couple. I think we are communicating better all around, because we are praying together.
Brian has done amazing with leading us as a family. He has stepped up in so many ways and I know it’s because of his relationship with Jesus.
It’s amazing how much love overflows into so many areas of our lives, when we are close to Him and seeking His presence.
So many times I forget that we are in battles that are not of this world, so fighting them with worldly weapons isn’t enough. Sure there are tools we can use that can help, but to defeat anything, we need Jesus on our side.
We need the armor of God. The belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit, and the shoes of readiness given by the gospel of peace. We need to be praying at all times!
