So what's a girl to do about guys? How dare they be themselves-the nerve! Lol!
No, but seriously, guys are a definite pitfall for many girls. Satan likes to use situations and relationships that should be edifying and enriching in our lives and turn it into a stumbling block. Here's a secret I'm going to share-guys aren't the problem! Sure, they can contribute to our out of control minds and feelings, but most of the time we have no one to blame but ourselves.
What are we supposed to do with feelings when they arise? How do we keep emotionally pure? One really helpful thing I've learned (I got this idea from reading the Duggar girls' book actually-Growing Up Duggar) is to immediately pray about something, someone or just ask God for help. The Duggar girls pointed out that Satan wants us further away from God, not closer. So if every time he tries to make you fall, you pray instead-you've taken his tool! His entry has been blocked and you're no longer allowing him to use this situation in your life for evil.
Is it wrong to "like" a guy? Not in and of itself, it's what you do with those feelings that matter. Don't let the thoughts continue, stop them immediately! The longer you allow them to stay in your mind, the harder it is to control your thoughts.
