Fire drill – take your glasses off

I was reminded yesterday in church of a fire drill I use from time to time. It involves controlling my eyes in church. There is no question that church is the most difficult place that I struggle with objectifying women.

The tip is this. If you wear glasses than take them off. In my case the loss if clear vision is enough to get me back on track. There are some blessings to getting older!

If you use reading glasses than putting them on can help.

If neither of these will work for you then move to a different seat or switch seats with someone else.

    I have to be reminded that the girls in church are not the problem, it’s my heart, my learned behaviors, and the things I am triggered by.

    Many guys go to church and are not thinking about the girls around. We with sexual struggles have sexualized our relationships and build long-standing patterns of objectifying women. It doesn’t matter what public place we’re in, we are working on our struggle or giving in to it.

    I like the suggestion of taking the glasses off.

    We also should pray before we get into church and maybe sit near the front where there is less distraction in front of us.

    Good stuff! Thanks VIP.

      Ahhhh…Both good. I have forgotten that I typically sit in a place that minimizes the potential for triggers. The praying…what a concept!
