Skip the tomboy

Tomboyishness versus femininity can only be ascertained through conversation. Yes, you can see signs of both from afar in some women, but looks can be deceptive. ANR desire is more about who a person is on the inside than external attributes. The spirit is more important than the shell. So men, I’d exhort you to…

A huge mighty God who chooses the least likely, such as nursing, and the Cross

“A huge, mighty God who chooses the least likely.” — Shai Linne, Election God prefers to use the unlikeliest, even the taboo, to glorify himself, for example, using a woman nursing her husband to bring unrivaled stability to marriages. Or his Son becoming a curse to rescue sinful men from the curse of sin, which…

Adult nursing hospitals

Honestly, some relics of the past need to be brought back to life. I was just thinking of how an adult breastfeeding hospital, even in 2021, could be a viable option for those suffering from chronic illnesses treatable with breast milk. Consider this previously quoted line: “Historically, women have breastfed adults who were sickly to…

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

If you struggle with intrusive mental images of ANRs, then “think often that Christ suffered agony for your purity. Fight image with image. Christ crying in agony.” Titus 2:14: Christ gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for…

Ancient Breastfeeding

Even pagans realized the divine value of breastfeeding. Take another look at the relief. Notice how the person she’s breastfeeding isn’t a baby. Now I know pagans engaged in all kinds of strange and sinful customs, but there were cross-cultural similarities between different ancient people groups, irrespective of the worship of YHWH. Commentaries such as…

Pray and fast

If you fall into sexual sin, devote at least one day to fast and pray. It’ll reorient your walk. And God will restore you. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. — 1 John 1:9 Repentance

Daughter, let the King be enthralled by your beauty

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.[b] A wedding song. 1 My heart is stirred by a noble theme    as I recite my verses for the king;    my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. 2 You are the most excellent of men    and your lips have been anointed with grace,    since…

Stop thinking of ANR

My ANR desire has led me into faulty thinking which has in turn led to straying thoughts lately, so now I don’t think of it as much. I choose to focus on other important things, and so should you. There’s more to life than ANR. Obsession

2 Corinthians 4

The Light of the Gospel 1 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is…
