If I have to write all night, I will!
I refuse to give into these thoughts!
I don’t know why I ever entertained them before.
It’s obvious how I was always bought.
When Satan sold me those lies,
I believed every one.
“You won’t be hurting anyone.
You’re just having fun.”
But those were such lies.
I was hurting me and my lover.
Sex cannot keep you from hell.
God will serve no other!
Exodus tells us how abominable we are
to commit such sin.
There is no getting away with it
when God brings our end!
Protect me, Lord, and know my thoughts.
I will not be sold again.
For by Christ’s blood I have been bought.

Unfortunately this was a part of my testimony, and for the ones who read it and tell me it helps them to know they are not alone, and not give up, I post this… even though it is extremely hard to share. I have bought into the lie that my testimony is “inappropriate” for too long. My testimony is what God allowed. This poem is me fighting during very difficult times that I now have such shame for because the love of God saved me. The Holy Spirit changed my way of thinking. Even if His encouraging me to testify helps just one… praise His Holy and Cleansing name! I was blessed to glean from the testimonies of others who found it just as hard to share something they were so ashamed of. Shame is good in its spiritual place! There is a righteous shame!
