Setting boundaries is important in sexual purity


mental muscle1What I have learned from my iStopped journey is you have to build BOUNDARIES from this. And not gray area boundaries, defined boundaries that you can be held accountable to. Titus 2:11-12 is a word that has helped me a lot to create the boundaries and by God’s grace be able to keep the boundaries.

This is what is says, 11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age”

I pray that is you are reading this God will help you identify triggers to why you fall to sexual sin and create healthy boundaries for the glory of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Here is an article I found online to help you through this.

WHAT IS A TRIGGER?
A trigger is something that gets your attention, pushes a button, and causes you to want to sinfully act out.

WHAT TRIGGERS YOU?
Q:  What things excite you and cause you to want to act out?
Q:  What things have enticed you right before you have acted out?
Q:  Any fetishes or objects that turn you on?
Q:  Certain images or porn that you have acted out regularly with?
Q:  TV or Movies cause you more problems?
Q:  Types of clothing or ways people dress are triggery for you?
Q:  Types of conversations are triggery for you?

 

A HISTORY BEHIND YOUR TRIGGERS
Triggers are historical.

Triggers will happen regardless.

But you’re going to have to be serious about retraining your reaction to these triggers.  You have to start running away, clinging to Christ, praying, talking to someone else…something.  You have to build a habit of responding in a healthy way to triggers.

I trust this will help you develop your boundaries.

    Something important to remember is that sex addiction has nothing to do with sex. It is a much deeper emotional and spiritual issue. It is important to understand our sexual triggers, but even more important is to understand our emotional triggers. Emotional triggers such as abandonment, isolation, rejection are strong factors in our wanting to act out sexually (or with any other acting out issue, drugs, alcohol, etc…). Watching a divorced husband with his kids is emotionally triggering, listening to a wife who was abandoned is emotionally triggering, watching a TV show where one party commits adultery is emotionally triggering. Once a person is in recovery long enough, they can dig deeper into the more powerful triggers that lie beneath the sex addiction surface….

      I totally agree Jorge, this is the 1st defense line of fighting with the eyes before fighting in the mind and heart (for things that are valuable). I appreciate your comment. 😀
