What scriptures have made you comfortable with yourself? I'm curious ^.^ specifically geared towards sexuality, as I'm sure you've deducted. X
1 Samuel 16:7 - But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
1 Timothy 4:4 - For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
Ephesians 2:10 - For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Genesis 1:27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
These are just a couple that help me :)
There aren’t very many that are geared specifically towards sexuality. Sadly the only verses that really touch on sexuality in the Bible talk about it in a different light than it is actually played out in modern times today.
Reblog if you want your followers to ANONYMOUSLY ask you anything they’re curious about.
If I come off anon, would you mind giving me advice? I'm a teenager and I think I'm Pansexual or maybe just flat out Lesbian. I want to get closer with God but I read the passages that speak of homosexuality and now I feel really, really discouraged.
Yes I would love to give you advice to the best of my ability :)
This is absolutely adorable! Kudos to you :)
I get that each person has the right to voice their opinion, but there comes a point where freedom of speech becomes oppression of others. I am not saying that you don’t have the right to speak your mind, I am just saying there is a fine line between speaking your mind, and forcing your opinion onto others expecting them to change.
This Day and Age.
In this day and age people focus so much on dating, and finding someone to share their life with that they lose focus of who they are as an individual. Ladies and Gentleman you do not need another person to define who you are! If it takes you being in a relationship for you to feel like you are truly yourself, then something is missing in your life that no relationship will ever fix entirely. Dating life is not meant to be a distraction from the problems that lie deeper in one’s heart, but rather it is meant to expand a person in love and companionship. A person should not seek a relationship, until they fully know who they are as a person and where they stand by themselves. A relationship that is dependent upon the right motives is a relationship that will work, but one that is had just as a means of distraction will never truly satisfy either party. My advice is as fallow don’t date until you are ready to, and don’t feel like you have to date based on the pressures of society. Be who you want to be, and love how you desire too. Just don’t let a relationship or another person define you. I am a single woman, attending college, and I am happy. If I so happen to stumble across a girl to my likings, I will in fact attempt to swoon her, but until then I am perfectly happy waiting until I meet her :) Society tells me as a woman I am powerless without a man by my side, well they are wrong, because one I will never have a man on my hip. and two the power of a women can go a long way.
