30 Days of Change: 5, 6, 7 (warning: day 7 is not for sensitive people)

Big catch up. I have had a lot going on and was sick all day today. I am sorry for the late posts.
edit: Day 7 talks about sex. It is a fact, I chose to put this on my blog. Either read it or don't but know I warned you.

Day 5:

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord...  Acts 3:19

Today was of sin. How do we view our sins. I used to view mine as something that could never be forgiven. I used to think I was too stained for God to love me. If you go through the bible though, many amazing women have sinned and were later used for God's greater glory later in their life. Such as Sarai, Rohab, and Mary Magdalene. I have accepted God has forgiven me and I will strive to honor that amazing blessing.

Day 6:

Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by the Spirit of our God.  1 Corinthians 6:9-11 

As for morals of the world and morals of the Lord and which I participate in more. I am at an awkward transition stage. Things that I used to think were okay are turning out not to be so I am still learning what is okay to participate in and what is not. So the answer is, more world morals right now but striving to act upon God morals.

Day 7:

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you have been bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.  1 Corinthians 6:18-19

I am going off track with this day because I have something to say about this one. I used to be so pissed off about this passage. Honestly it was one I used most while I was not a Christian and needed to argue against it. I would always yell about how no one had any right to my body but myself and I could damn well what I please with it. (excuse the language please). And then...I realized that honoring my body and honoring God by honoring my body was not a horrible thing. Would you break or abuse a Christmas gift given to you? Would you wear it out and then not be able to share the joy of the gift with someone you care about? I freely admit I was sexually active before I married my husband. And in all honesty I do regret it. My regret stems from the fact that we did not learn to love with each other. Let us also look at this from a different perspective. I was a child with a mother who was only sure about one father of the four children she had. I grew up without a father and the men that followed did terrible things to me. If you do sleep around then please make sure you are with someone you can imagine having a child with. Really think about it. Put yourself on the best birth control out there and always have protection. Double team with it on protection such as condoms and inserts and birth control. Just please be careful. And if you ever want to talk to someone on how to find protection or how to abstain come talk to me. I will listen and if you are not religious I will not judge. I have been there, I have dealt with every sexual problem there is. I will help.
