...as a single guy I've asked GOD to take away my sex drive so that I wouldn't be driven to porn and sexual immorality - because HE gave me the drive that HE gives all men - but I was convinced and convicted that unless I asked GOD for the gift of celibacy/reduced sex drive, it would be a struggle. And guess what? HE gave me what I asked. Granted, at times I think it's weird that I don't even think about the subject - and there are those voices telling me that I'm missing out on that aspect of my life. Plus living the L.A. area - and you're CONSTANTLY bombarded with things related to lusts of the eyes - that's one of the reasons that I was driven to ask for such an "extreme" request - and I said "extreme" because it would seem an odd request to some. I am not saying that thoughts don't come up in my head, because they do. But I realize what they are, I ask the LORD to help get those thoughts out of my head, and I start focusing on things that are spiritually/Biblicaly based. You start thinking of Scripture and I guarantee you'll quit thinking in a sensual fashion.
