Insight into sexual drive

Image
Next time when you have strong sexual drive, know that there is something in it to praise God. The desire is a God-given gift. It is absolutely good and acceptable to God. It is meant to give glory to the creator. It is meant for the loving union between husband and wife. It is meant to point us to our eternal union with God.  Then where is the problem?  The problem is:   The world has deceived us into thinking that when we have a sexual drive it has to be gratified somehow. Unlike hunger, unattended sexual desire does not have any dire consequence. World has manipulated our minds to associate sexual drives with the vices of pornography, masturbation, casual hookups, prostitution and other dangerous and soul crushing evils. It has gotten us to associate our sexual desires with specific body types, acts and fantasies.  World has fooled us into thinking that these vices are a neccessity to meet the natural needs of the human body and it is absolutely OK to indulge in them. They have bapt

Broken to give life!

When I love; I gain. When I'm broken I'm made strong. In my weakness you triumph. Despite this knowledge I fail. Help me Lord find my real essence, the true me. If i'm made like you, what is in me that is causing my inability to forgive. Where does these emotions come from? where does ego come from? Why do I feel betrayed, unaccepted and unloved. Why do I even want to be loved and accepted? You cried out from the cross "Father forgive, for they know not what they do". Did you not have emotions, ego and pain? How did you handle it? Was it your mission or your love unconditional or both that gave you strength? What is my mission, purpose and nature? It is to love unconditionally and be broken to nourish others like you did. I realize then how much more I must do this for the women of my life whom you gave me. I fight with You over the gift I have received from You. You could not have made a mistake. It is a perfect gift!. It is my imperfections that question t

Generous laughter and a life without agenda

It has always been an experience being with little children. Their innocence, simplicity, honesty, generous laughter and a life without an agenda. It is a perfect image of a child of God. As an adult, how do we loose these qualities. Is it our up bringing or the choices we make or both?  I'm a father now. It is up to me today to to walk by my children and help them choose what is worth so they preserve their innocence and simplicity and never let them loose it. 

Statues and Images

God took the form of a human person. He had a form, shape and a face. Then why should I venerate him in vacuum.

Fathers' perfect will for me

Father, Your love for me is constant. My love for You is not. It totally depends on my mood and feelings. I feel differently at different times. I get hurt and I switch modes. I have negative feelings when things go against my will and expectations. Is the culprit then my will and my expectations or is it my emotions? For I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  God's will is good, pleasing and perfect.  God, I know you have a perfect will for me. Do I need to have my own will then? If I join my will to Your will, do I need to expect at all? Cause you bring to fruition all things beyond my expectation. Emotions they respond to my deposition like a mirror. If I smile, she will smile back and if I frown she will do the same. To have my own will is a gift God has given me out of his great love and respect. Father may your will be done in my life and nothing more nothing less.
