    Hi everyone
    I'm a 19 year old girl and new here. I'm a little bit shy to even be writing this. (actually really embarrassed.) I have no one else to turn to at the moment about this issue. Recently I've been getting constant ( i mean every minute) thoughts about being with another girl. So much so that I even started calling myself a lesbian ( or bi sometimes.) I even looked for girls online and chatted with other lesbians which only made the situation worse. I want this attraction to other women to just go away!

    Well I've been a baptist all my life and I KNOW the truth and what's right. I know that homosexuality is a sin! I'm trying to stop these feelings but i really need prayer to help me. So please could you pray so that the devil stops putting these thoughts and urges on my mind?

    You have no idea how much it means to me! thank you.

    Mina,
    You are in my prayers regarding this issue.

    BB friends, remember, this is the place to be in prayer for Mina. This is not the place to debate the issue.

    I have prayed for you. I have prayed that God will show you the "way of escape" and that you will heed it. I've prayed that the chains of temptation that bind you will be broken. You said that you have been a Baptist all of your life. Have you been saved?

    Let me give you a scripture to meditate on.

    That means that these desires that you are having that you know are wrong are desires that countless others have felt. You aren't by yourself.

    God will not allow the devil to tempt you without God, Himself, providing you a way of escape.

    Pray, every morning, for the way of escape to be made clear to you. And pray for the spiritual backbone to take that perfect escape that God has just for you.

    Lastly, let me give you a verse of a hymn to meditate on.

    "Jesus calls over the tumult
    of our life's wild and restless sea.
    Everyday His sweet voice sounds out -
    Saying, "Christian!! Follow Me!"

    The temptations in our lives can be like wild seas crashing in on us. But Jesus' voice is louder the call of the devil. And he is calling you and I everyday - to follow Him.

    I'm 30 years older than you. I've made mistakes untold.

    Trust me when I tell you this. While what you are going through is serious and a little scarey - do NOT be afraid. God and the devil are not opposite forces fighting over you.

    God wins. He's already won. If you are saved, then "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world."

    Psalm 119:9-11 How can those who are young keep their way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

    :praying:

    May I also suggest maybe speaking with your pastor's wife or another woman in the church you trust? When others we know are aware of our struggles it really helps! Praying God helps you overcome your struggle. Remember, He is not surprised by this, and there is a reason and purpose for this that does not include giving into the temptation.

    Hopefully you are in a church that will help you deal with this. In the meantime, I don't think there's really any "special" way to deal with this...it's an obsessive thought, and there's a zillion different types of those...about girls, about guys, about food, about career goals, about money. Any of it can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with if your mind keeps dwelling on it.

    For yourself, handle it like any other sexual temptation (or any other obsessive thought there is that you don't want) for the moment. Make a replacement thought for when your mind turns to it. For example, pick a verse, any verse, from the Bible, and train your mind to turn to that verse and quote it and then immediately say a quick prayer for help. It will take practice, because that overwhelming thought will be trying to take over in your mind, but do it every single time and pretty soon you'll find that you're repeating it easily and it's not so difficult to change the direction your brain is trying to take you in.

    Figure out what your triggers are...whether it's visuals, being lonely, or whatever it is that turns your mind to thoughts that are bothering you. Make a plan for what to do to distract yourself. I wouldn't suggest looking at photos of pretty girls. :smilewinkgrin: Think of things like a favorite hobby, writing in your journal, reading a book, doing some charity work, or cleaning. I find when I'm angry at myself or anyone for any reason, a scrub-brush and whipping around the house doing work is a WONDERFUL way to replace the time I'd spend sitting there steaming and thinking wrong thoughts.

    I hope this helps and that you find a good support system. Above all, it's easy for girls your age to get these thoughts (in the USA we're basically surrounded by such ideas all the time) and then get so scared that they start thinking about it all the time, then they only go further into it and then it solidifies their fears. Stop being afraid...just make the right choices and trust that you're strong enough to deal with this, and humble enough to let go of your fear and trust the Holy Spirit to fill you up inside and replace anything that is not of our Father.

    Praying For You Mina

    Mina I can't say I understand what you feel but I can say I understand probably just like everyone else when you say that you know that the devil is attacking you.
    Believe me he is loving every minute of this when you keep these thoughts because then your thoughts are away from God. I'm not judging you in any way so if it sounds like I am I'm very sorry for the intention.

    I don't know if there's anywhere on the board that I posted a poem I wrote when I felt like the devil was attacking me like never before..but it comes to my mind every time when he wants to play and would like to extend to you the poem..

    Devil Needed Nowhere

    This was the last poem I have done in quite awhile.
    This poem I wrote feeling like I was being attacked by Satan himself.
    This poem I say when I'm feeling at my lowest point and that I feel like it will never stop.


    Devil be gone
    you'll never be needed
    You'll never be welcomed
    and you'll never be greeted

    You try owning soul after soul
    by making a fancy deal
    But this true Christian knows
    Your deals aren't real

    For I'll always have news for you
    For the Lord my God
    will be tops in my life
    forever it's true

    You can't take away any sin
    So no door is open
    I'm not letting you in

    Jesus has the power
    to do so much more
    So to him I open my door

    For he makes promises
    That I know he will keep
    He guides and leads me
    Even during my sleep

    So devil be gone
    You'll never be needed
    You'll never be welcomed
    You'll never be greeted
    copyright 2008 Anna M.


    I do :praying: in the Lord's name that these thoughts will leave you and that God will take you and put you on the right path once and for all. May he be with you always.:praying:

    Repent. Seek Him. Run to God. Pick up the Bible. Go to Him. Pray. Submit. He is pure and Holy. No person can ever be more important than Christ. Seek with all your heart to please God. be Holy in Him. read the Bible when you see it coming. will be praying...

    By Any Chance?

    By any chance because my username has rainbow in it and because I said I know how Mina feels (please be honest so I know) is it assumed that I'm also lesbian oriented?

    If it is please be reassured I'm definitely not and that my username has been used since 2007 in many forums. It is in fact that 4ever4Jesus and I were once a couple but remain the best of friends.

    My username come from Genesis 9:16 and something I always thought about and looked for after it rained wondering if it was finally time.

    When I said I knew I she felt it was because it was my brother is homosexual and I knew by what I go through with him what may be going through her mind.

    RJ brought it to my attention that maybe it was being assumed I was lesbian and hiding my true stance as a Christian believer.

    For any misunderstandings accept my apologies. But I am definitely a follower of Jesus Christ now and always.:jesus::flower:

    In Her Defense

    Hi All this is RJ here. What God’s Rainbowgal says is absolutely true. Anna and I a man were together for a few years now we are best friends. In no one way whatsoever does the Rainbow in her user name has anything to do with that Rainbow Gay Religion stuff.

    Her name Rainbow is inspired by the promise after Noah left the Ark. That God showed His signs in the Clouds. This being a perpetual covenant to all generations that God would never again destroy all Life on Earth with a Great Flood.

    Anna has in fact posted about the Gay Rainbow Church at another forum we post at. She posted this article in’ False Religions and Cults’.

    We are very sorry that the Gay community has adopted the Gay Rainbow name. They have perverted the name of the Rainbow. But surely God is watching.

    Now let us focus on the true Rainbow. God made it. Not intended in the least for Homosexual practice. Anything that says God approves of this is not telling the truth.

    Listen to what Lot had to say. When Lot was in Sodom and Gomorrah the 2 Angels were inside His house. The men in that area were banging on the door. Let us in. Let us know those men. To know in Bible language is intercourse.

    Lot walked out and said. “Do not do This’ Evil’ Thing. For I have 2 daughters whom has not known a man. Take them and do what you want. Other words it would have been far better these men have sex with his daughters than to do the evil homosexual they wanted to do. Not one scripture neither in the Old Testament nor in the New Testament supports the practice of this abomination. When Jesus teaches about marriage it is always between a man and a woman. Never the same sex partners. Those who have said God said this is fine have not read their Bibles close enough. God never supported this practice and He never will.
    God’s Rainbowgal is straight. God’s Rainbowgal was married to a man named Mark for about 12 years.

    If you don’t know about this Gay Rainbow religion look it up online. They have put Dark clouds in the sky. It is the Law of The Spirit. God is Spirit His Laws is triumphant and Universal.

    Do not assume I hate anyone who is gay. I am only addressing what the Bible tells us is the truth. I have Gay friends online. I’m not to judge God is. But we are to inform others the truth about this practice when the time is right.

    Thanks for clarifying the rainbow thing, but here forward, take it to another forum. This is for prayers and praises.

    Thanks.
