4 Tips for Battling Temptation

Temptation is something that all of us face. James 1:13-15 gives us some insight as to where temptation comes from:

Let no man say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God can’t be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, produces death.

This passages shows us that temptation comes from lust (NKJV says desires), and lust then turns into sin. Death comes from following those temptations & being enticed by our lusts. We might then wonder, where does lust come from? I believe that it comes from the enemy. Lust is part of our sinful nature; when we become Christ’s and die to our sinful nature, the enemy still tries to creep in with sinful thoughts.

Jesus said in John 10:10: “The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” What I’m getting at is that our enemy, the devil, wants to steal, kill, and destroy us. He will oftentimes do so through our thoughts, and temptation.

Again, temptation is something we all face. Lustful and sinful thoughts, it happens to us all, including ME. We aren’t perfect, because the enemy often will try to plant these thoughts in our head. If we aren’t careful, and end up following our temptation, this will lead to death. I don’t say this to scare you, but to make you more aware & to help you fight the fight of faith.

Because temptation is real & comes from thoughts from the enemy, today I want to share a few tips to help you battle temptation.

Seek God FIRST & Arm Yourself with His Truth

Seeking God first is so vitally important in our relationship with Him and battling temptation. When we daily set aside time to get in the Word and in prayer & worship, our mind becomes focused on what truly matters.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to pray without ceasing. It’s super important to have a designated time to pray & read the Word every day, as well as to pray/worship/meditate on God’s Word throughout the day. This will help us keep our minds on things above (Colossians 3:2), and cast our cares on Him.

We need to daily be arming ourselves with truth and the WHOLE armor of God (found in Ephesians 6:10-20),by getting in His presence daily. I hope and pray you will designate a time of day to spend time with the Lord, as well as strive to set your mind on Him throughout the day.
Seeking Him first & setting your mind on Him is the first step in having victory over temptation.

John 8:31-32 // Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, andthe truth shall make you free.”

Check out my quiet time routine on Youtube for inspiration for your time with God!

Establish Boundaries

Without boundaries, we will more likely do things we know are wrong. Think about this example: if a girl hangs out with guys in God-honoring group settings and makes a point not to be in one-on-one/tempting situations with guys, she will be protecting herself from giving into temptation as well as protecting her purity and that of her guy friends.

Boundaries can apply to various temptations you might face – temptations to be on your phone all day, to eat junk food, to be lazy, etc. Strive to set boundaries from what you will and won’t do, and stick to them by God’s strength. Obviously, we will still mess up; but we can always come to God and repent and turn from sin and start again.

Setting boundaries means nothing unless we daily look to Him for strength. He is the strength in your weakness; surrender all to Him, look to the Lord for the power to resist temptation. Don’t live in guilt when you mess up; genuinely repent and start again.

2 Corinthians 12:9 // And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 

1 Corinthians 16:13 // Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be courageous! Be strong! 

Be Alert – Fight the Enemy & Claim Victory

We have an enemy and he wants to knock us down; he wants to steal, kill, and destroy our souls (see John 10:10). I’m not saying this to scare you, friends, but to remind you to be on guard.

1 Peter 5:8 says: “Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Just because someone is a Christian and sets Godly boundaries, doesn’t mean they won’t still face temptation. I have, and still do, face tempting thoughts at times and things that I know are from the enemy. It happens to everyone, which is why we must fight and claim victory in Jesus’ Name.

We have the power through Jesus to rebuke and reject the enemy and tell him to leave our minds and our lives. Lately I’ve been doing this daily as I face any thoughts that aren’t of God, and it has helped me greatly. I encourage you to vocally command the enemy to leave you alone in the Name of Jesus and to claim victory, as well as pray throughout the day – praising God, giving Him your struggles and sinful thoughts, etc.

Romans 8:11 // But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Politely Decline Others When You Need To

When others are telling and tempting you to do something you KNOW is wrong, you need to flee. Sometimes, the only thing you can do is leave. Politely decline others when you need to. Just say NO. Even if it means looking weird in the eyes of others, it is worth it to protect yourself from sin.

We should befriend and love on and show Jesus to unbelievers, but make sure they aren’t your best friends who influence you. 2 Corinthians 6:14 says: “Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”

Know that it’s okay to distance yourself from friends who aren’t saved who are dragging you away from righteousness. In some occasions, if you have friends who consistently try to drag you away from righteousness, you may need to break up with those friends. Prayerfully evaluate your friendships and learn to say no when you need to.

I hope these tips encourage you in your battle over temptation & the devil. In Jesus you have victory. ❤

The book releases on April 1st, and I’m so excited! I read the first book in the series, Porch Swing Girl (read my review here) and I know this book will be amazing as well. Go check it out! I recommend this series to all teen girls & young women out there; it is all pure and Bible based (there is some romance and a couple kisses on the cheek, but that’s the only thing I found that some people might be concerned by), and the story is so fun and inspiring. The characters are so sweet and relatable! 🙂

Why I’ve Never Been on a Date

Hi, I’m Caitlyn, I’m in my upper teen years, and I’ve never been on a date. I’ve never even been asked on one!

Many people will think you’re crazy if you’ve never been on a date by your late teen years, & young adult years. For the world, it’s normal for teens/young adults to have multiple significant others throughout the years. But, is it healthy? Does dating around honor God?

I have never been on a date, and there are multiple reasons for that:

I have never been on a date for a few reasons:

  • I am not yet ready for marriage
  • I haven’t been asked on a date
  • I haven’t met any guys who I feel God would call me to spend the rest of my life with starting now
  • My parents taught me not to date around like the world does

I’m a firm believer in purposeful dating. I don’t believe that we should merely “date around” for the purpose of dating someone. When we enter a dating relationship, it should be with the purpose of marriage in mind. We should be dating someone asking the question, “Would I marry this person?” A good & God-honoring dating relationship doesn’t start just because you think someone is attractive and good-looking. It starts when you both realize that God wants you to enter a relationship with each other, and your motives are to honor Him, not gratify your selfish desires.

Before I go on, I want to let you know that wherever you are, whatever you’ve done, God forgives and you can start walking with Him. If you’ve messed up in any way, even in terms of love & romance, you can start over, friend. Come to Him & He will make you new & help you to see dating & romance in a brand-new, Biblical, wonderful way. You can move on. He can forgive you. You can walk in His Truth & it is a beautiful thing! You’re never too far gone.

Dating is a controversial topic, and all relationships look different. Because of what I’ve learned from God’s Word and good books on love & romance, I only want to date when I am ready for marriage, the other person is ready for marriage, our parents have “okayed” the relationship, and we both feel that God is calling us to date one another.

Read these awesome passages:

Colossians 3:17 // Whatever you do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father, through him.

Proverbs 11:14 // Where there is no wise guidance, the nation falls, but in the multitude of counselors there is victory.

When entering into a dating relationship, I want to make sure my parents have met the guy & are ok with the relationship. I hope to know the guy fairly well & trust that he is serving God wholeheartedly and we have similar worldviews according to God’s Word. Above all, I want the relationship to be wholly built on God & honoring to Him.

A dating relationship should be entered into with the purpose of honoring God. When you enter into a relationship with selfish motives, things will go downhill. When a guy & girl hope to have their needs met & their reputations made better by a relationship with each other, they have the wrong motives. I hope to one day, if/when the Lord brings the right man into my life, be able to enter a relationship to serve each other & find out if we should marry one another. 

I encourage you, if you are single like me, keep praying & trusting in God. Spend this season learning to be fully content in God ALONE. Some of us may be called to singleness not just for a season, but for our whole lives, or for an extended time. Ask yourself, would I be content if I was single my whole life? 

Seeking and serving God is the point of this life, not having a spouse. Although marriage is a wonderful & beautiful gift God has given us, it’s not what we live for. God is the One who fulfills our hearts’ desires and needs, and only He satisfies. No guy can ever fill the hole in your heart that God was made to fill.

I’ve never been on a date. Why? Because God hasn’t called me to date yet, and I’m not ready for it yet. I am waiting for the right time & the right person, & I know God will provide. Love is a wonderful, beautiful, and AMAZING thing that I look forward to! But I’m striving to focus on being content in God alone, and I pray you will too, in every season of life. ❤

4 Tips For When You Have a Crush

Ah, crushes. They affect us whether we are 13 and just noticing boys, as well as when we get older. When we reach the teenage years or so, we begin to notice guys in a new light – we see certain qualities about them that we admire, and crushes can easily develop.

It can be hard to tame the longings and desires of our hearts. So…what do we do when we have a crush on a guy? Here are a few tips…

Surrender yourself & the guy to God in prayer

When I find myself thinking about guys or randomly having thoughts of liking them in my head, I strive to surrender them to God and to His plan for him and for me.

When you find yourself developing a crush on a guy, STOP and pray. Surrender him to God and ask God to help you see him as a brother in Christ and a friend, nothing more. Ask God to guide you both and help you have a God-honoring relationship, and pray for this guy to grow in his relationship with the Lord and for his spiritual well-being. If the Lord ever wants you two to go into more than a friendship, you can trust that you and the guy will know, since you surrendered it to God.

Set your thoughts on something else

One time I was randomly thinking about a guy, so I stopped and thought about something else. And you know what, it works!

When your thoughts go to thinking about how great a guy is, or imagining your future with him, stop yourself before it goes further. Colossians 3:2 says: “Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth.” (emphasis added) When thoughts invade about some guy, set them on God instead.

We can easily elevate guys in our minds by thinking about them often. The same happens with God. If you choose to think about Him instead of this guy, it’ll cause you to love God more and put this guy in the right perspective. Only God deserves all of our affection. Focus on His Word, or on praising Him and thanking Him for all the ways He blesses you. (Not just for this awesome guy, lol.)

Pray for your future husband

Making a list of important and Biblical qualities that are important in a future husband and praying over this list regularly can help you keep your mindset right concerning guys. When you remember God has someone out there for you and pray for him regularly, it can help you remember to keep waiting for him.

Proverbs 31:12 says: “She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” This is referring to the woman and her husband.  By praying for our future husband now and walking on the path of purity, we will be honoring God. We’ll also be walking on the right path for our future husband, and doing him good, even if we don’t know him yet. Even when we mess up, God will give us grace when we come to Him and help us get back up and keep walking in purity.

If you have made past mistakes concerning purity, crushes, and guys in general, know that you’re not too far gone. Come to God with your mistakes and confess all you’ve done and ask for His forgiveness. Jesus bore ALL your sins on the cross and the Lord wants to forgive and redeem you. He wants to help you get back up and walk on the path of purity. 1 John 1:9 says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

2 Peter 3:9 says: The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some count slowness; but is patient with us, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (emphasis added)

Jesus bore ALL your sins on the cross and the Lord wants to help you live righteously..png

Come to God in prayer and turn from your sin, and He’ll give you the power to live for Him and walk the path of purity! It’s not about being perfect by any means, but about striving to be better, by His strength and for His glory, each day, one step at a time. 🙂

Strive to see guys as BROTHERS

I have a brother, and if I saw all my guy friends as my brother…well, that would certainly change things!

1 Timothy 5:1-2 gives us some helpful encouragement in how to view others. It says: Don’t rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father; the younger men as brothers; the elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, in all purity.

Oftentimes we glorify guys in our minds, but if we saw them as brothers, we’d love them but not in “that” way. We’d realize they have their faults and wouldn’t elevate them so much in our thoughts. Let’s look at guys as our BROTHERS in Christ, not as potential boyfriends and future husbands. This allows us to have a relationship with less pressure and be able to get to know them in a Godly way. When we ask God, He will help us grow in having this perspective in guys.

Let's look at guys as our BROTHERS in Christ, not as potential boyfriends and future husbands..png

I hope & pray that this post encourages you to handle crushes in a Godly manner. It’s not easy, but it’s so worth it. Chasing after guys in our hearts and minds isn’t worth it, but setting all our affections on the Lord and striving to honor Him in all our relationships always is. 🙂

Why I’m Not Celebrating Halloween

Many think that Halloween is an innocent holiday, and that it doesn’t matter if you’re a Christian and celebrate it. However, Halloween isn’t all that it seems. In this post I want to explain why my family has never celebrated it, and why it is wrong to celebrate Halloween according to God’s Word. I pray that you will keep an open mind as you read this post, and study God’s Word for yourself to get His take on this! 🙂

What you might not know is just how Halloween started. It’s origins come from about 2,000 years ago when the Celtics celebrated a pagan festival that has now become what we call “Halloween.” They called this day “Samhain.” During this festival, they believed that the dead came alive and that the living could visit with the dead. (For more info, see this article)

Furthermore, Halloween is the first day in a three day celebration called Allhallowtide, a time to remember the dead, including saints, martyrs, and the “faithfully departed.”

God’s Word actually tells us to not do as pagans do. Sure, this holiday has changed since then, but it still has pagan origins.

Deuteronomy 12:29-32 // When Yahweh your God cuts off the nations from before you, where you go in to dispossess them, and you dispossess them, and dwell in their land; be careful that you are not ensnared to follow them, after that they are destroyed from before you; and that you not inquire after their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? I will do likewise.” You shall not do so to Yahweh your God; for every abomination to Yahweh, which he hates, have they done to their gods; for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. Whatever thing I command you, that you shall observe to do. You shall not add to it, nor take away from it.

This holiday also celebrates darkness and things that are not of God. God calls His children to be children of the light, so why should we take part in a holiday that celebrates darkness? Darkness and light CANNOT coexist. Even if you celebrate the “happy” or seemingly “good” parts of Halloween, you are still taking part in a day of darkness.

Darkness.png

 

Ephesians 5:11-14 says: Have no fellowship with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather even reprove them. For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of. But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that reveals is light. Therefore he says, “Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

1 John 1:5-7 has a similar theme to the passage from Ephesians. It says: This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don’t tell the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

We are called to walk in the light as God is in the light, not walking in darkness. We aren’t even supposed to have any fellowship with the deeds of darkness, for it is shameful to even speak of those things. We lie if we say we have fellowship with God and then walk in the darkness.

We lie if we say we have fellowship with God and then walk in the darkness..png

Halloween is not something that is right when we look at God’s Word. He tells us to be holy as He is holy (1 Peter 1:16) He tells us to walk in the light as He is in the light (1 John 1:5-7). He calls us to honor Him in all we do (1 Samuel 2:30, 1 Corinthians 10:31). He calls us to be different than this world (Romans 12:1-2). We can’t do this and celebrate Halloween at the same time.

Even if we say we aren’t celebrating like others do and have the right heart or mindset, we are still taking part in a dark holiday. Our hearts are sinful, so we shouldn’t listen to them. We should listen to God’s Word. He calls us to be holy and set-apart, and I believe that because of what He says in His Word, we, as Christians, should take no part in Halloween.

// Should We Celebrate Halloween as Christians? //

The Key to True Faith in God

Faith is something that is talked about a lot amongst Christians. We tend to say things like,

“Have faith.”

“Hold onto your faith.”

What does it really mean to have faith, and how can we practically hold onto our faith in all seasons?

Recently I’ve been reading through Romans and studying a few verses a day. A topic that is very present in this book so far is our salvation by faith and not by the law or any works we could do.

In chapter four, Paul talks about the faith of Abraham, and it is very inspiring. Abraham was a man who lived in the Old Testament days. (You can read his story in Genesis!) When he was about 100 years old, he and his wife Sarah had not borne any children. One day, God told them they would have a child and that they would have many descendants after them.

Genesis 15:5-7 says: Yahweh brought him outside, and said, “Look now toward the sky, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” He said to Abram, “So will your offspring be.” He believed in Yahweh, who credited it to him for righteousness. He said to Abram, “I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.”

This seems like a crazy promise, and one that we could easily laugh at and say “Really, God?” However, Abraham had a different reaction.

Romans 4:17-22 says: As it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations.” This is in the presence of him whom he believed: God, who gives life to the dead, and calls the things that are not, as though they were. Besides hope, Abraham in hope believed, to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So will your offspring be.” Without being weakened in faith, he didn’t consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform. Therefore it also was “credited to him for righteousness.” (emphasis added)

Abraham didn’t look at what was seen, his old body and the deadness of his wife’s womb. Rather, this passage says that he looked to the promise of God and BELIEVED. He grew strong in his faith and glorified God. He was fully convinced that what God had promised He was also able to carry out.

WOW. That is what you call true faith. While Abraham could have focused on doubt and all the reasons why it was likely that he and his wife couldn’t have children, he chose to look at God’s promises and believe.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 says: For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; while we don’t look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

This verse reminds us, specifically for affliction, but this can apply to other areas, to look to what is unseen, for that is eternal. I believe that this is what Abraham did. He focused on God’s promises and His ability to do what He said He would.

How often do we take God at His Word and believe He is who He says He is?

How often do we look to God’s promises and are fully assured that they are true?

Abraham models what true faith is. It’s holding fast to God’s promises and having assurance that He is who He says He is and will do what He said He will do. THIS is faith.

When you go through trials and times that are tough, even in the littlest ways, it can be easy to forget about or doubt God’s promises. In those times, and in every single day, I encourage you to remember God’s promises and believe. Remember what He has done for you in the past, for people you  know, and the amazing works He performed in the Bible!

Our God is greater, our God is stronger and higher than all things in this world. His promises are true, it’s up to us if we will choose to have faith in His promises.

The key to faith is believing God’s promises and that He is who He says He is. Don’t just take my word for it though! Read these passages on faith:

Hebrews 11:1 // Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:6 // Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him [God], for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. (things in brackets added by me)

2 Corinthians 5:7 // Therefore we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; for we walk by faith, not by sight.

Faith is all about believing in our unseen God. It’s being assured that He is real, that He’s there, and that His promises are true. That is the key to faith. Belief and trust is all it takes. No, it’s not easy to have faith. There will be times when it feels unbearably tough and like your faith is being tested.

That is why, in all times, we look to God. We persevere. We hold onto His promises, for He who has promised is faithful. //

 

Why I Stopped Watching “Anne with an E”

I LOVE Anne of Green Gables, thanks to a friend of mine who told me about the movies a year or so ago. 😉 I fell in love with the movies and am currently reading book 4 in the series.

Last year, Netflix started a show called “Anne with an E.” It’s a very modernized version of Anne of Green Gables, and they made numerous alterations to the books and original story.

Despite these changes, I really enjoyed the first season – the actors were all spectacular, the was setting GORGEOUS, and the filming was amazing. And can I just say, GILBERT! If you know anything about AoGG, enough said. 😉 There were a couple questionable things in 2 of the episodes that made me uncomfortable, but I decided that I would try out the second season, and if these kind of things continued, I would stop watching the show.

I was disappointed after watching most of the second season. Let me just say, I don’t mind how the show strays from the story-line, it doesn’t particularly bother me. However, when they do things that are against God’s Word, along with some things that were not-so-great in the first season, I simply cannot keep watching/supporting the show. In season 2, they did something that I do not support in any way.

One of the characters is homosexual. Well, he has desires to be, and likes guys, and they support him. Anne believes that love looks different for everyone and whatever kind of love you have, whether you are straight or gay, that should be supported. She even talks about this in one episode.

You might be thinking, okay, it’s just one character, and you can fast forward through any scenes that aren’t good. However, I don’t think I’m going to continue watching this show unless things improve.

Ephesians 5:3-4 says: But sexual immorality, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be mentioned among you, as becomes saints; nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not appropriate; but rather giving of thanks. (emphasis added)

I thought about continuing to watch the show, but I honestly didn’t even really enjoy the second season much anyways. Plus, God’s Word says to not even mention sexual immorality among you. This means that we shouldn’t watch it, speak of it, think about it, or do it. “Anne with an E” obviously supports gay people and homosexuality, and God’s Word doesn’t.

Let me make this clear: I love gay and homosexual people, and I believe God does too. He sent Jesus to save ALL people, not just the straight people. John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

I don’t, however, support their sin. It’s wrong according to God’s Word. (For more on God’s design for romantic relationships, check out this post) I can’t watch Anne with an E the same way knowing that there’s a character on there who is homosexual. It’s against God’s Word, and even if there’s just a hint of it in this show, I know it’s something I shouldn’t watch.

I encourage you to be careful what you are watching and allowing into your mind. I know that there are some really great shows and movies out there that have homosexuality in them, and I want to encourage you to chose to refrain from watching those shows. God calls His people to be holy and pure, and not participating in, agreeing with, or thinking about sin. Even if you go through those scenes of sexual immorality, whether it be with a man and a woman or with people of the same sex, is it worth it? You shouldn’t have to compromise your morals for entertainment.

You are called to be set-apart and holy, so I encourage you to think before you watch.

1 Peter 1:13-16 // Therefore prepare your minds for action, be sober, and set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ— as children of obedience, not conforming yourselves according to your former lusts as in your ignorance, but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy; for I am holy.”

Romans 12:1-2 // Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Philippians 4:8 // Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things.

Matthew 7:13-14 // “Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.
