The burlesque of life will always "pop" up out the middle of nowhere it seems. I have family members and in-laws some close cousins others at a distance who give in to the burlesque completely without marriage. I'm now at the age of getting closer to 30 and I still see girls fall for the burlesque lifestyle rather than finding strength in God's word. I'm married and have three children. When I attended college I was friends with girls who attended hollywood runways and party life. I studied mathematics while being surrounded in an entire classroom with guys so my father never encouraged me to be a wall-flower.
do you balance this faith in scripture (of any language) and not getting
to the point where a person becomes religious and scornful??
point that I like to emphasize is that the psalms and proverbs are
still useful for today. Psalm 119 is designed to help a person cope
with the pressures of life and joyfully choose the blessings of God and
study his word rather than the fleshly ways of temptation. Psalm 119 is
an acrostic (complete) poem for the love of God's law. Successful and
influential people in history have memorized Psalm 119 (slavery
abolished in Europe without weapons of war thanks to a man who
memorized). In Jesus' day, the first portion of scripture children were
taught to memorize was Psalm 119!. Reading 5 psalms, 1 proverb each
day according to day of month can challenge psychological and social
We live in a day where the church gives in-to
the burlesque too easily and rely's on it for strength. This is a
deception. It is ONLY for within the walls of marriage and thats it.
Anything else leads to slavery of the body and destruction of the next
Keep in mind I have also met a homeschool mother who
denied the "need" for the burlesque and ended up divorced and very
religious yet with many children. I spoke with her for a while but then
she called police officers and started yelling as if mentally ill so I
had to leave her presence as I wasn't "clean" enough to be around her
As a side note I grew up in a Norwegian American
household and as such Norwegian Scandinavian Christians went through
persecution in the early days. Norwegian's don't necessarily support or
emphasize the need for the American constitution or laws even today yet
at times they still do. I'd like my kids to have knowledge of
Norwegian stories as well as the biblical ones. Some neighbor norwegian
relative guys attended public school but still come back "dumb" and
unable to read. Their intelligence is in farming and thats it.
So my question as a whole like I said before......how does a woman balance faith and the burlesque??
