Spiritual Warfare Against Impure Desire

by Ma. Venus
(Philippines)

Ave Maria!

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,

Ma. Venus

You are correct in resisting this temptation because it is indeed a mortal sin for you to desire someone else's husband. The Lord will strengthen you and set you free from this temptation. He loves you. Continue to pray that He will bring into your life a man who will be true and who is free and available for you to love. Cast your cares on the Lord and believe that He has a better plan for your life that does not include falling into sin and temptation.

My prayers are with you.

Dear Ma. Venus,
i agree with jane in saying that satan has many ways of deceiving you..and what you feel for that man is one of those.please think of your future with him.he could not marry you.is that what you want?there is only one dream that all women in the world share..and that is to see themselves in their wedding gown on their wedding day with the man they love.and even if he gets an annulment,you still wouldn't be happy because the catholic church doesn't recognize annulment..you would commit adultery.i know it is easy for me to say this because i'm not in your situation.but,you have to forget him.He is not the only man who has the qualities you mentioned.i am pretty sure that the right one for you is just somewhere.just pray for it.pray the Rosary.God will never forsake you.you will find that prayers will make you wiser.i will also pray for you.God bless you!

I am praying that you will be strong to resist
the temptations for this man..The devil comes
to steal, rob and destroy marriages. I know,
I fell in love with a married man and it broke
my marriage and my family. It was over 30 years
ago and I have cried many tears and suffered over my failure to recognize this evil. I now look back with profound regret over my sins and the hurt I caused others. Please listen & be guided by the holy spirit. Please don't fall for this man.
Satan has many ways of deceiving us and tries to
weaken us and convince us that it is ok and will better the 2nd time. But remember he is a liar and great deceiver. Put your faith in Jesus and
Mary and pray to the holy spirit for guidance.
Say the rosary every day, and go to adoration and
confession. The devil hates the rosary, confession and adoration. Please don't be fooled, or fall for this man. Stay away and
put your trust in God and his mercy. God Bless
You, He will help you. I will pray for you.....Jean...
