The story of Mindy

Another struggle that was shared during the retreat was the subject of lust, and how he did not want to look at or think of his sisters in Christ that way.  The frustration and shame were so tangible, and I think it resonated with a lot of the people, especially guys, there.  I thought he was very brave for standing in front of not just one church, but multiple churches in the area, speaking out about his struggles, and Praise the Lord that he felt he had to confess that to everyone, because getting it out and admitting it is the first step to healing.

So when I stumbled upon this article yesterday, it reminded me of this struggle that many people have to deal with, and it shows just how easy it is to manipulate a young girl to think that she would like to be part of that kind of lifestyle.  This is what can happen when our lives are not God-centered – we covet things and want to try things to fill a void within us.  It’s in our nature.  And I’m not judging here – I myself have seen how much I can fall without God as my center.  But anyway, I hope this article can also serve as a reminder that the people in these videos are real people, who are really affected by what they’re doing in their lives outside of the industry.  And the struggles follow them for the rest of their lives.  So instead of consuming what the industry provides, let’s pray for all of those involved, that they would come to know Christ as the only nurturer of our souls and the only thing we need.
