Hello! How are you doing? How is life going? I really really hope everything is going great with y’all and if not, don’t stop trusting in God. For me, I have just been alright(nothing much). Also, I have really been trying to maintain my healthy lifestyle because the temptation has been A LOT! I also finished re-reading one of my favorite books, which is “Americanah” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and I just cannot wait to write a blogpost about it:) Anyway, let’s get on to the matter at hand.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know what today’s blogpost is about. I talked about it briefly in the caption of my latest insta post. So, rape is the matter at hand. I have been thinking about rape a lot in the past few days, trying to make sense of it and understand why it even happens. In all my thoughts, man I have been so angry and exhausted because I just do not understand how some people do not see and understand that it is extremely wrong to force someone to have sex with you.
Like just thinking about the little kids especially, who get raped almost on a daily basis. These kids are just kids, they are JUST KIDS. It is so freaking inhumane to do this to them and literally anybody else. What do these kids even know and due to a person’s stupidity, they have to go through freaking trauma from a really young age. Honestly, I am so angry that I do not even know how to put it into words. I just pray that God takes charge over this issue because it is really really infuriating and heartbreaking.
What is the other explanation for rape, if not an insane addiction to sex that you would do anything to get it and also lack of self-control. There’s so much more to life than sex. Sex is not everything! Like just imagine, you are trying to pleasure yourself at the expense of someone else’s health/life. It is very very wicked and painful. It is literally five minutes of pleasure for you and a lifetime of pain for the victim. Raping someone is intentionally hurting them, can’t you see it? Just put yourself in that person’s shoes, do you see it now? Or imagine the same was done to your girlfriend/boyfriend or child, just freaking imagine!!
It is just really really sad because people don’t even feel safe going out anymore. People have to buy different weapons for self defense and protection. That has become the new normal and it is not supposed to be like that! Humans are supposed to protect each other, to help each other but it is the exact opposite. It is just like people do not care about other people’s feelings and emotions anymore. People don’t really care about being humane anymore and it is heartbreaking.
Also, do we all know what God says about sex?? Let me brief y’all real quick. 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 vs 3-5 says, “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God..” According to this Bible verse, we all should know how to control our bodies..this greatly speaks to people who force other people to have sex with them.. Learn how to control yourself in holiness, do not go after lust like people who do not know God. God doesn’t want any kind of sexual immorality; while sex is good according to God, God doesn’t want it to be impure. Sexual immorality is sin and sin is filth-this is against God!
This is why it is also really important to give your life to God. Become born again, surrender your life to Christ, ask for the Holy Spirit and start to live a Christ-like life. If not, you would be doing things that you are not supposed to do. Things that are against the Bible and things that are just plainly WRONG! With God in your life and also with the Holy spirit, you receive guidance. You receive knowledge and you gain understanding. You are able to flee/abstain from every sexual immorality with the help of God. I pray that God guides our hearts, opens our eyes, and help us to understand what is right and what is wrong in Jesus name. Amen!
This is from God to y’all, by the way! Have a great rest of the week. Bye people!
