Please, please don’t judge me and please help me figure out what to do because I already feel ashamed and embarrassed and guilty and horrible about this.

It’s okay. The same thing happened to me. I saw it on accident and was curious and things just went further from there. That’s how the porn industry is designed and it’s disgusting. But you have no reason to feel embarrassed or disgusted with yourself. The important thing is that you have turned away from it, and that’s a really hard thing to do. You can forgive yourself because God has forgiven you. Always remember that, he loves you so much and can forgive you of anything.

Oh hun, boy do I know how you feel. I’ve not been in that situation exactly, but I have definitely been in a position where I sinned terribly, even knowing it was wrong, and then I did not feel worthy of forgiveness afterwards. The truth is that none of us are worthy of forgiveness, that’s the power of God’s grace and the passion of His love. “God proved His own love for us in that WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS Christ died for us” Romans 5:8 (Emphasis added) His grace does not depend on who we are, or what we have done, but in that He is greater than all of our sin. Do you remember the story of the adulteress in John 8? The penalty for adultery was stoning, and so the people found her, and dragged her before Jesus, saying (and I’m paraphrasing all of this) “Teacher, the law demands that adulterers be stoned to death. What do you say of this woman who was caught in adultery?” and Jesus quietly ignores them, writing in the dust, but they continue their questioning, and so he stands, “Let the one among you who has committed no sin be the first to throw a rock at her.” all it would take was ONE blameless person, and all the others would have permission to participate in her stoning, the only thing she deserved as her penalty. But at these words, each person began to look back, and remember their own sin. They dropped their stones and left, knowing not a one of them was blameless in the lord’s sight. Then Jesus looked at the woman. Jesus. The one and ONLY blameless person on the entire earth. The one person who could throw that first stone and condemn her for her sin, “Did no one condemn you?” He asks her. Humbled, and probably trembling in fear, after all, she surely knows that this man, her Lord, is blameless, “No one, Lord,” and looking on His child with pure and passionate love, Jesus says to her, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and sin no more.” You see, God is always ready to forgive us. His love is so great, and the only thing separating us from Him is our sin. He forgives our sins, and He tells us to go froward, and sin no more. This is repentance, that we come to realize our wrongdoings, and repent. Even the people who sought to condemn the adulteress turned away. They realized their sin, and they turned away, knowing a sinner cannot condemn a sinner. Dear girl, I can say with ABSOLUTE confidence that you are forgiven. You, on your own, are not worthy of redemption, but God, is His great mercy has MADE you worthy, because HE calls you worthy. Never doubt the power of God’s grace, it will NEVER fail.
