Spiritual Warfare Against Impure Desire
by Ma. Venus
I am single and on the stage of finding the man for me to become my husband. And then, I met a guy who has the qualities of being a good husband for me. That means, I can be myself when I am around with him, I can share my thoughts and desires freely, and he has passed my requirements of a good husband. He has this strong Catholic faith. The only problem, he is already married and has a son. And I have this battle within me of not desiring and loving him. I like him, and I am afraid that this like will soon be develop into love. So, I have really to control my self and to set my mind that it is a mortal sin and I will be scourging and hurting Jesus again if I allow this desire to overcome me.
Please include me in your prayer intentions. That Jesus, Mary, and St. Joseph will shield my heart against the sin of impurities - the impure desires. And I will have the strength to control my feelings for him. Love is a decision, not a feeling. Thank you and God bless you all!
With Love of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
