I remember reading that when we, as Christians, are encouraged to not only pray for each other, but to ask each other for prayers when troubled or just in need of prayer. I've been exploring the Orthodox faith, and have actually recently become a catechumen, but have been finding difficulty with some sins I often indulge(d) in. I'm finding myself lacking in motivation to go to church, when just not too long ago I was excited to do so! I find it silly when I do make it to church, when I enter the nave I guess I'm reminded of why I'm choosing Orthodoxy. It's just so peaceful and, well, 'still' so to speak.
I'm kind of hesitant to include this, but I'm also struggling with something kind of embarrassing. I've been struggling with lust lately, and I've not been wanting to become involved with anyone for fear of doing it for the wrong reason (lust). I've been finding myself interested in a coworker, and while she is physically attractive, I don't want to build a relationship on that. I do like her for other reasons, but I can't help but wonder if those would be enough to catch my attention if she were physically unattractive. I'm just not sure what to do, since relationships are new ground for me. I'd just like some clarity, is all.
(yeesh, kind of sad that I talk more about the least important issue the most).
