Freedom from obsessive sexual thoughts

Originally appeared on

For the past few years, I’ve spent a lot of time soul-searching and praying about how to be a better healer. And an honest willingness to purify my own thought helped me uncover and correct something that had been affecting me for decades.

One morning, as I prayed, I really felt ready to open my heart to God. I felt like nothing would get in the way of this deep desire to purify myself and my view of man so that I could follow in Jesus’ footsteps and heal as he did. And something amazing happened. I guess it was finally time to think about an issue I’d pushed to the back of my mind.

It was something that I wasn’t proud of, and it was hard to muster the courage or initiative to pray about it. Besides, it had become a habit and was tempting to just indulge.
