I am struggling lately with a lot of thoughts that are very sexual, particularly regarding my fiance (who is not local, so it's not like this is a huge issue right now). Thinking a lot about past experiences together where we have already talked about it and decided that it isn't a good place forus to go, and decided that we will not allow this to happen again before we're married. But it's like once I have gone there and opened the floodgates to those powerful emotions, I am having a hard time closing them down again. When I have these thoughts, I do feel a great temptation. Currently I'm trying not to think about it and trying to come up with alternative strategies to help me to banish the thoughts from my mind. Do any of you have suggestions of things that have been helpful for you? I'm thinking that scripture memorization, which has always been a struggle for me, might be really helpful here. Any scriptures that you would recommend? I'm thinking Ps. 51, the prayer for God to cleanse my heart, would be helpful, so that's my plan.
I'm open to ideas.
