Love Dare - Day 24

Love vs. Lust

 

The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.  – 1 John 2:17

 

Adam and Eve were supplied with everything they needed in the Garden of Eden.  They had fellowship with God and intimacy with one another.  But after Eve was deceived by the serpent, she saw the forbidden fruit and set her heart on it.  Before long, Adam joined in her wishes, and against God’s command both of them ate.

 

That’s the progression.  From eyes to heart to action.  And then follows shame and regret.

 

We, too, have been supplied with everything we need for a full, productive, enriching life.  “We have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either” (1 Timothy 6:7).  But the Bible goes on to say that, having basics of food and clothing, we should be “content.”  And Jesus promised these two things would always be provided to God’s children (Matthew 6:25-33).

 

God’s blessings, however, go so far beyond these fundamental needs, we could rightly say that we want for nothing.  Yet like Adam and Eve, we still want more.  So we set our eyes and hearts on seeking worldly pleasure.  We try to meet legitimate needs in illegitimate ways.  For many it’s seeking sexual fulfillment in another person or in pornographic images designed to feel like a real person.  We look, stare, and fantasize.  We try to be discreet but barely turn our eyes away.  And once our eyes are capture by curiosity, our hearts become entangled. Then we act on our lust.

 

We can also lust after possessions or power or prideful ambition.  We see what others have and we want it.  Our hearts are deceived into saying, “I could be happy if I only had this.”  Then we make the decision to go after it.

 

“But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction” (1 Timothy 6:9).

 

Lust is in opposition to love.  It means to set your heart and passions on something forbidden.  And for a believer it’s the first step out of fellowship with the Lord and with others.  That’s because every object of your lust – whether it’s a young coworker or a film actress, or coveting after a half-million dollar house or a sports car – represents the beginnings of a lie.  This person or thing that seems to promise sheer satisfaction is more like a bottomless pit of unmet longings.

 

Lust always breeds more lust.  “What is the source of the wars and the fights among you?  Don’t they come from the cravings that are at war within you?  (James 4:1 HCSB).  Lust will make you dissatisfied with your husband or wife.  It breeds anger, numbs hearts, and destroys marriages.  Rather than fullness, it leads to emptiness.

 

It’s time to expose lust for what it really is – a misguided thirst for satisfaction that only God can fulfill.  Lust is like a warning light on the dashboard of your heart, alerting you to the fact that you are not allowing God’s love to fill you.  When your eyes and heart are on Him, your actions will lead you to lasting joy, not to endless cycles of regret and condemnation.

 

“His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.  For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust” (2 Peter 1:3-4).

 

Are you tired of being lied to by lust?  Are you fed up with believing that forbidden pleasures are able to keep you happy and content?  Then begin setting your eyes on the Word of God.  Let His promises of peace and freedom work their way into your heart.  Daily receive the unconditional love He has already proven to your through the cross. Focus on being grateful for everything God has already given you rather than choosing discontentment.

 

You’ll find yourself so full on what He provides, you won’t be hungry anymore for the junk food of lust.

 

And while you’re at it, set your eyes and heart on your spouse again.  “Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth … Be exhilarated always with her love.  For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress and embrace the bosom of a foreigner?  For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He watches all his paths” (Proverbs 5:18-21).

 

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John 2:15).  Lust is the best this world has to offer, but love offers you the best life in the world.

 

 

Today’s Dare

 

End it now.  Identify every object of lust in your life and remove it.  Single out every lie you’ve swallowed in pursuing forbidden pleasure and reject it.  Lust cannot be allowed to live in a back bedroom.  It must be killed and destroyed – today – and replaced with the sure promises of God and a heart filled with His perfect love.

 

Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil.  (1 Peter 2:16)

I read back over the entries from yesterday. So many of us are dealing with spousal rejection and infidelity.  The one that said that God was one step ahead is true for me too.  I had no idea what kind of a bombshell was coming because I found out about the infidelity right after the dare to fight fair.  How can you fight fair when the wind is knocked out of you. But God is more powerful than I am. I had to dig deep and realize what I had done to the relationship.  I had to ask forgiveness for that and then to work to accept the request for forgiveness from my spouse.  Last night we sat our teen kids down and apologized to them for the stress we had introduced in to the house.  They seem puzzled til I said that we were not getting a divorce.  The looks on their faces were worth it.  Today's devotional in the Upper Room was Forgiveness brings peace.  For those still struggling, me included, talk with God.  Ask him where in your life he can help you be back on track with him. Whether your marriage lasts or not, your first priority is God.  he really can work it out.  Keep prayering, keep crying to God

My computer is messing up: Forgive me if this goes on twice......

This dare, at first, I thought was another one I didn't need. Another one I wished my husband was reading. Then I realized that there are things in my life that I have put above God. I have always loved God but I have worked for other things and not worked hard on my relationship wiwth God. I have even put my marriage before my relationship with God. I love my husband so much and want to renew our marriage. It is hard when you are being rejected by the man you are in love with to focus on anything else. I have hope that we will find our way back together. My greater hope right now is me finding my way back to God and my husband finding his way to God, through Christ. I know if I can do that, everything will fall into place. I just have to keep praying that my husband will finally find the peace of knowing God, truly knowing God and then I know he will be able to love himself and fall in love with me agian. Please pray for us, all my siblings in Christ. God Bless you all!

We all know that Adam and Eve was blessed with all the things needed from fellowship with God to great intimacy with each other.Even we are blesed with everything but our EYES and Heart urge for more.We can see lust and love all around.In lust we get satisfactory things but in love we get great life.So,to get great life we should surrender ourselves to God.

My husband and I have a wonderful story of hope.  We separated June of 2008....I surrendered my life to Jesus July 0f 2008 and through our divorce we became friends again and through our son our love was renewed.....In June of 2009 he proposed marriage....we took the 40 day dare....watched Fireproof your marriage and he then gave his life to Jesus....we were remarried on September 12th.  We are so blessed....we both have suffered through addictions in our past and we married for the wrong reasons however through the love and Mercy of Jesus Christ our marriage was restored and we are stronger and closer now then we have ever been.  We love God and we do all we can to share our story to give others hope.

My prayer is that while those of you doing this dare take it seriously because it can and will change your life forever.

I have very low self-esteem/self-image and I struggle with it on a daily basis.  My husband compliments me, but my internal dialogue tells me that he's just saying it because he has to.  So instead of taking his word for it, I look to other men's compliments to make me feel better about me. I have never been physically unfaithful to my husband, but I realize that just wanting another man to find me attractive is just as bad.  I recognize this and have been praying on it because I know that the only person I need to turn to is God...and He already loves me for who I am.  It's going to take work on my part, but I'm willing to do it.  I want to strengthen my relationship with God and I want my self-esteem/self-image to come from three people...God, my husband and myself.

I'm right in the middle of this one today...Wow.  God has been trying to get me to learn this lesson for a while.  I'm married, but my eyes are on another man.  The other man is married too.  Luckily, I don't think he even knows I'm alive.  We are just acquaintances. I plan on keeping it that way!  I will not advance this and I will forget it.  Thank you for this dare!  Thank God He knows where I am and what I need.

I did not think until this moment I had a problem with lust. In reading over the Love Dare I realize lust is a huge problem for me. I wanted to be rich and it has led to my ruin. I wanted a more attractive attentive spouse and almost lost mine. I am almost relieved to have identified this problem so I can pray specifically that God will kill the lust in my life so I can have a real life loving Him fully.

My baby was born 1-27-10, Zoe Lee Corbin. even though my wife and I have been working on putting our marriage back together, her mom now won't let me on the property, Shira (my wife) wants me there and her mom knows it but doesn't care. Shira has no internet and only her moms phone and is too weak and frazeled to do anything. I can't do this. Her mom is trying to force things into the courts so it is that much harder for us to reconcile. And the worst thing is, even though shira knows what her mom is doing, she won't do anything about it. I have nothing I can do. This is fully in God's hands, it is our first child, I want to be with my daughter, this was the greatest thing in my life, now I am past the end. I know God can do anything, I just don't know anything anymore. Help, Please. if I have to go to dourt, her parents are rich, I work, I don't have money for lawyers. I am helpless. My faith is barely enough this time. though its all thats keeping me alive. I don't hurt anymore really. everything has just gone distant. I am floating through a hallow sphere, the only thing that could change things is a miracle, I serve the God of Miracles, yet I don't see his hand, things only get better enough to make the next fall harder. I give up. God has to act, I can only figure that everything I have done  is wrong, and all I have done is try and show love. I am at the end. I can't be whatever it is i am supposed too. I can't even see,

hi shel. your marriage reminds me so much of mine. are you still married or seperated from your husband? i'm struggling with letting go of my husband; i still love him very much. we are currently seperated, but he does not want to open his heart to our Savior, Jesus Christ. i still call beg him to give our marriage of 13 years a chance, but he continues being hurtful and ridicules me. it seems that his heart is set on "over"; and my heart still longs for him. i found GOD and have centered him in everything i do; he is of utmost value and love to me. the Lord has given me healing, but i'm still not fixed. I have survived the many times i felt suicidal because GOD lifted me from the darkness and showed me the way. I love our Lord more than i love my husband and my children, but im struggling letting go. i hope to hear some feedback from the many beautiful people on here. pray for me my dear brothers and sisters. and for all broken marriages.

I am struggling with this love Dare.  I ain't gonna lie.  I have been struggling with the last weeks.  My husband has done something that has hurt me so bad, I find it hard to even look at him.  I told him I am not going anywhere no matter what he does, and I am trying to mean it.  i don't understand how to get him to see what he is doing..  TO give up all my lusts when he refuses to do the same...I don't think I am that strong

After my first marriage ended 5 years ago because of lust on both our parts, I gave my life to God and after a few years of healing, began searching for a life partner who is grounded in God as well. Recently, a man that I was engaged to be married to almost 20 years ago came back in to my life. I was on cloud nine! The years of wondering about the 'what if's?' was finally over. At about the same time, another man I dated about 5 years ago also came back in to my life. Both are wonderful men, and it seemed like agony to have to choose between the one I wanted all my life - not a christian, and this other wonderful person - who is strongly grounded in God. More and more, God spoke to me and I knew the answer was simple. Going through the motions was not so easy though because there was going to be hurt for someone. Today's dare helped me understand very clearly what God has been telling me all along. I lusted for a relationship with the one I was once to marry. I thought if only I could have that, I would be happy. Then everything would fall into place, I would have the love of my life. But God had a different plan because all along, what I needed and wanted was right in front of me. It just had to happen in God's time. He brought this second man into my life who, through the last few years, has had an impact on my life where my relationship with God is concerned. He drew me closer to God by his own faith and actions, was present when I was baptized in 2006 and has been a shoulder to lean on for words of strength in times of need. This time, I decided to lead my heart with my head (also one of the Love Dares!). I chose the man who has been there for me and wants to build a life with me in Christ. We aren't married yet (not even engaged or living together), but we are doing the love dare together because it's important enough to us to start loving each other as best we can TODAY - and not just after we say 'I do'. We take each day as it comes and are so grateful for this second chance with each other. No touch is unappreciated and no expression of love is unspoken. His sons and my daughter adore each other and can't wait for us to get married. How truly blessed we are. I hope our story brings someone hope that God does have a plan for you, even if it means a lot of storms before you get there. Believe and take action in Him, and He will bring you to where you are supposed to be. God bless.

To In Deep Sorrow,
My husband and I are still married but the affair only just begun in November. I found out on Thanksgiving. He seems to be set in "over", we too have been married 13 yrs. I am very much in love with him and  me to, it was hard because I have always been the care giver type and in our marriage, I always did everything, even working. I took care of him and therefore never let him be a man. I don't know what it going to happen. Part of me wants to beieve God will restore and repair because we are married after all. Part of me is afraid it is too late and my husbands will will not succumb to the Lord. I had a few good days but for the last 2 days, they have been awful. I cry all the time and my stomach is in knots. I never knew I was this in love with my husband. I never knew I needed him. I also never knew I needed God so much. Stay strong, and continue to pray, I see a lot of happy stories on here! Bless you, my prayers now include you!

I am a long time fan of KLOVE....
Some days it is the only thing I can cling to and hear my Lords voice.  I am very blessed....sometimes I am too blessed.  We have 6 boys between the ages of 18 and 5, all at home.  I know that boys will be boys...but sometimes I wonder "where is the love".  We have good kids, some a little more hard headed than others.  For the last year or so it seems to be getting harder for them to get along.  We have a big house in the country, on a beautiful spread with a lake and plenty to do.  So I know it isn't because they are all crammed together.  There are days when I walk in after a long day and it sounds like they are trying to kill each other!  Sometimes they are just plain mean...they constantly pick, push, and antagonize the heck out of each other.  Even when I say 'Stop' they just keep jabbing.  It is to the point where I feel like the devil himself is about to come out of me!!  There are times when it is all I can do to keep from flying around the corner and pouncing on them myself....what kind of example is that?  I am just to a point where I am struggling with my own self and the self I know God wants me to be....I know it is the devil twisting and turning things inside out.....
What I want to know is this....is it possible to do or have my boys to do the Love Dare.  I know it isn't an easy things for adults to do but I want them to see theirselves and how hurtful they are becoming, to each other and to me.  Is it something I can modify for them to do?  If not and you have a better suggestion.......please send it my way.  I know God would not have blessed me with all these boys unless He had a BIG plan for this BIG family.....

So, I went and rented the movie last week and bought the book. I had told my husband about the love dare thing they were doing on k-love and that I was interested in seeing what it was. I had no idea what the movie was about and I figured it would not do much good. Unlike a lot of the couples, we bottomed out a few years ago and have been improving since, so it's not necesarily an emergencey for us, more like a fun thing to give us a boost- that's what I told him, too. I was shocked to see that the movie was so well acted, so well written, so funny and so serious at the same time. And that almost every agument this couple had to say to one another was something one of us had said to the other at one time or another. Of course, I was bawling at the end of the movie, but the part that really surprised me was how much my husband loved the movie. We immediately watched it again. We get it! Only problem is, the book is much more slow moving and less fun sounding than this 40 day thing, since it is a whole year's worth. Not to say it isn't worth buying, but I'd rather do the 40 day thing instead. But I can't fugure out how to get to the days I didn't look at yet. Can anyone help?

Wow did this one hit home! My husband and I have had a stormy relationship. We struggled with addictions and I was unfaithful. I didn't have Christ in my life and looked to other men to try and fill the void and to make me feel better about myself. My life was filled with discontent. I judged my husband and focused only on his flaws and imperfections not looking at my own. I had an image of the perfect husband in my head and he did not meet that image so I was seeking it out in other men. I was seeking out someone who could never live up to my expectations to fill the void that only Jesus Christ could fill. The very sad part of this is that my husband tried his hardest to be everything I needed. If I complained I needed more intimacy,attention, affection he did his best to meet those needs and was always faithful to me throughout it all. But it was never enough for me because I was seeking fulfillment in the things of the world and not those of Christ. My husband (the one that I found so many flaws in) forgave me of all my transgressions because of his unconditional love for me!! Like Christ, he saw all of my imperfections and flaws and sins and chose to love and forgive me anyway! I have committed my life to Christ Jesus and found that all of the things I was searching for, I found in Jesus Christ! Only though Him was that void filled. I am grateful today for the things Christ has blessed me with! I still struggle, but I choose to love my husband just as Jesus loves me!

Dear in deep sorrow,

I read your comment and it really touched my heart because my wife and I have been struggling through similar issues for several years now.  As a man, it is very difficult for us to let go of things sometimes and we have a very difficult time expressing love and intimacy.  We have to remember that we cannot change others or ourselves and can only allow God to enter our hearts and work within us.  Love the Lord with all your heart and soul and He will always provide you with all you need.  I had to learn to depend on God first and know everything else will fall into place after that.  I will pray for you and all those struggling in marriage and always remember that your life is the most precious gift from God.  God Bless you and your family...

In Deep Sorrow, I have been where you are now. My husband and I are currently separated but I truly believe God is in the process of turning things around. However, this is our second separation and during our first separtion I reacted the same as you. I begged and pleaded...he rejected and ridiculed. I discovered how to handle my separation through a book by the title of "Love Must Be Tough". It is written by Dr. James Dobson and can be purchased on the Focus on the Family website. It teaches you how to let go but not necessarily give up on your marriage. It helped me so much. Please consider purchasing it. The best thing is to continue to draw near to God. I will pray for you and I ask that you will pray for my husband and I to be reconciled.

I am trying to do this love dare in the aftermath of infidelity on my fiance's part. This is hard and I can't get rid of the pain that continues no matter how hard I try these dares. I am good for a couple days and then I break. The same behaviors continue on his part and he doesn't know I am doing this love dare. I have found moments when I let God love me but they are few and far between. I want to badly for my mate to have that aha moment when he really sees me and wants to love me.

I am away from home right now and My wife and I are doing the Love Dare online long distance. I wanted her to know how much I love her and appreciate her, so I wrote this poem to her, my best friend. There's no place I'd rather be...
than at home with you spending time with me.
Being gone so long makes me yearn for your kiss,
There's so much about you; There's things that I miss. The sparkle in your eyes. The smile on your face. The warmth of your hug as we passionately embrace. For the days will be short and the nights not so long, as a heart full of love stays true and stands strong. So I'll count down the time when again you'll be mine. You're the love of my life; You're my love...You're my wife!

My story is so much like yours.  My husband has been a wonderful example of Christ's love and forgiveness.  He has had patience and love and understanding when I didn't deserve it.  I honestly don't know what I would have done if the roles had been reversed, but I know that the Lord has given me a wonderful gift in my husband!  
I continue to pray for all the hearts that continue on this journey.  God Bless!

I am 25 years old. My husband and I got married in Nov. 2002. We have two boys 7 & 6, and two girls 4 & 2. We allowed a lot of junk into our marriage & eventually the sin we learned to live with destroyed our marriage. my husband moved out in Jan of 2009- my parents (who can not stand him) lost their business and home in Feb 2009 so they moved in with me and my 4 children. we have been separated a year now and we can get a divorce, however, I have been searching all through my Bible for guidance and I feel like God has said, "Try the Love Dare" plain as day, I heard Him. I can't afford to stay in this house anymore so my great grandma has told us we can all move in her house (which is empty) My husband and I have decided to give it one more shot & BOTH OF US put Christ first this time. So now I am dealing with my parents who are very upset that I am choosing to stay. they have no faith in Jason, and I'm beginning to think they are loosing their faith in God as well. There is way too much drama to put it all on here, but the bottom line is I am not moving with them- they are mad... I am taking a huge leap of faith & starting over with my husband- and I am scared to death... I am trusting God with every step I take because I have finally realized, He really isn't going anywhere... I am the one who walked away every time, I am the one who got selfish and all of a sudden God's word took up too much time out of my hectic day, and I am the one who quit caring... I am so thankful for  God's grace, I dont deserve it and I am so blessed to be graciously given it. I can not wait to see what God is going to do in our marriage... I am so hopeful- and I want ALL OF YOU to know that I will pray for you everyday!!! That God's will would be done, and even if His will is not what you wanted, that He will give you understanding and peace and joy. Our plans are nothing more than human ingenuity... They may be good ideas but good ideas can get in the way of God's ideas in a heart beat. So keep the faith yall- even when you think killing yourself would be better (and believe me, i have been there) just remember that God's love can heal ANY broken heart! He created you just the way you are and when He looks at you He is happy with who He made. If there is one thing I have learned over the past year, it is that God is faithful.He will never let go- EVER! It's up to you. Will you hold on? Will you have faith through your times of trouble? Will you say, "Lord, I don't know why you are allowing this to happen to me, but I will praise you in this storm and I will trust you with all that I have." OR- will you give up? I encourage you to read your bible every single day, if you dont already. and take time to BE STILL- and know that He is God.

Susan, thank you for responding to "in deep sorrow" somwhow we always think we are the only ones in the world dealing with infidelity.  i've been dealing with this for the past 2 years and going into my third year. i've given my husband 3 chances and this three chances he has been unfaithful with the same person. He states he loves me, but the lust is stronger then that. That i need to be patient and that the Lord will help him deal with this. Honestly i'm past patient. I started this love there and let it go as my husband is not in the home to follow it. check on it every so often and i feel the Lord is speaking to my heart not to give up. It's hard to give the man you've spent the last 22 years of your life. I read your comments on "no greater love and the other one about "tough love". i want him to know that i cannot be and don't want to be part of this love triangle, but i also want him to know that if he just re-dedicates his life back to the Lord i will be right there....Don't want him to think that i'm willing to put up with everything he is doing right now and then when he is "done" with whatever he is dealing with selfishly "oh well she still here" kinda deal. i guess this is when unconditional love would come into play.  please pray for me to make the right decisions according to God's will and let Him handle all the details. In Him...TC
