Reluctantly Porn (Unplanned Part II): The ‘How’ of My Freedom

I find myself writing once again on the topic of pornography, and once again writing with reluctance, fueled this time by different motivators.
I had a few people express frustration with the original article I wrote, due to the fact I didn’t expand on the ‘how’ of gaining my freedom, a frustration I can empathise with.
I am more than happy to share how God intervened, as the glory belongs solely to Him.
My reluctance however, centers around individuals who are struggling with porn addiction and looking at my ‘how ‘ and trying to emulate it to become their ‘how ‘, without checking with God to discover His perfect plan for individual freedom.

Reluctantly….Porn

Reluctantly….Porn

Lust. Sex. Porn.
If those words made you squirm, you may not want to read ahead. Likewise, if you’re of the prudish variety, because here I openly, albeit reluctantly, share with you my experience of, and thoughts on, pornography.

Reluctant, because people can be jerks. Some people refuse to see the transformational work of Jesus in the lives of others, and sadly these are often the same people who preach it.
Reluctant because I have children who need not be shamed or shunned on my behalf.
And reluctant, well, because I’m a woman, and women don’t struggle with porn….right?

Where The Bonds Children Lay

I haven’t released a corporate prophetic word in a while. And while this one is technically corporate, it’s certainly not generic and won’t be for all of you, in fact I think it will only be for a few, that’s not to say it’s some ‘exclusive’ word, simply that we are all called to the same path, we just have different companions on the way and our pit stops differ.
So if this strikes a chord within your spirit, a recognition of calling, then I encourage you to sit with it and ask God what the carrying out of this will look like for you- as you should with all prophetic words. Question it, weigh it, test it, we are not meant to be mindless robots.
