Loving someone is way different then lusting after them. A lot of relationships starting by lust and it’s why many of them has either failed or the individuals involved are miserable together. Lusting after one another will not help form a lasting bond. Lust does nothing but keep you from seeing the things you need to see (the things that are important). It breaks up relationships and diminishes character. It interferes with reality, because all you see is what makes you feel good or turn you on.
Through lust you’re completely looking through the windows of your heart. It’s like tunnel vision. Your mind is occupied with how that person makes you feel versus you seeing the entire big picture. Lust confuses and camouflages the truth. It’s what happens when people accept any and everything to be with someone. They think they’re in love, but they aren’t driven by love, but by that of lust.
People who lust after those they are trying to get with do so because of what they see. It can be something material or it can be after the physical body. If getting with someone has nothing to do with actual love, the lust will wear thin and eventually out. Then one or both individuals will sooner or later move on to the next best thing. This is when someone gets hurt, because it is often lust for one, but something more for the other person involved. However, sometimes it’s lust for both involved and completely about the physical attraction and sex.
Lusting after a person has caused many their lives. I didn’t want to post about teenagers/young adults, but in the true scheme of things this topic also involves them and their beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They go by what they see, hear, and think (whether good and/or bad). Unfortunately this post does relate to teenagers/young adults (those who are not yet adults). It also relates to adults. We’ve heard over and over how teenagers are meeting people on line and end up running away to be with them. They sometimes end up as sex slaves, pregnant, or dead. We’ve also heard of teenagers/young adults who fall in what they think is love with another person and sometimes go to the extreme to be with them. Some of them become belligerent and out of control, they’re fueled by their thoughts of what they think is love, but it’s not, it’s lust. Most adults don’t know what love is, so what do you think teenagers/young adults think when it comes to love? It’s why as adults involved in the life of children (whether our own or someone else’s), we must set good examples and provide good guidance.
Lust has destroyed many lives. It has literally destroyed lives on both personal and professional levels. How many times have we heard of politicians, teachers, preachers, and many more who end up losing their statuses or relationships over lust? There are too many to count. The behaviors these people get caught displaying has nothing to do with love. It’s all about self gratification and seeking relief of their loins. That’s it! Every last bit of it boils down to what’s really inside of each of us. It will come out sooner or later; one way or another. For those lusting after someone, they’ll continue to go after what they desire. It makes them feel good so they’ll continue to do what they’re doing until they’re caught up in some way or the relationship ends.
Countless amounts of people get into relationships stemming from lust. Not only do they start relationships many have gone on to marry knowing they aren’t in love. Eyes has the tendency to open once things have gotten bad or completely out of control. What I mean is this; it’s like a light bulb finally comes on and people realize the mess they’re in. They’re no longer in denial, some never were, it’s the person they’re with who’s in denial. They feel stuck and regretful. All of it could be avoided by not doing it in the first place. Being in love and loving your significant other can last, but lust never does. Passion can last if you continue to work at it, but lust dies! Serious relationships leading to marriage should have passion, but lust is a total different thing.
People can control lust, but it has to be a personal choice. Instead of even trying, most people fall into temptation of lust knowing it could cost them everything; to include their lives. They always think IT CAN’T HAPPEN TO ME! Well, that’s where you’re wrong! It can happen to you if it’s the lifestyle you’re living. If you continue to play around with things in your head, you will eventually act on them in some way or another.
People can look attractive on the surface, but underneath they can be volcanos about to erupt. Looks doesn’t define who a person is. A person can be good looking on the surface, but what dwells within can be something you didn’t bargain for. We’re living in 2014 and people still don’t get it. They’re still being led by their loins (feelings). This can lead to destruction. We’ve seen it over and over again. Still it happens! There are many truths of individuals with diseases purposely spreading it to others (most by society’s view are considered attractive). They lead people into their webs of deception and lust, because individual’s fall for them due to their looks. These individuals have agenda’s but those involved with them are being lead by lust.
There are many bad situations people find themselves in due to their lustful natures. Those lead by Lustful hearts lives oftentimes ends with destruction and/or some type of devastation. When will people learn??????????
