It boasted that it was the TV series to watch. I was so pleased to stumble upon it on Netflix last week. It had everything I look for in entertainment. Romance, historical events, and even time travel! This was the show I was going to settle in and become a part of. You know those books or movies that stay with you. Well this was it for me! Until….the first romance scene was over the top! I closed my eyes tight and hit the home button on my remote. First thought, “So much for that” Second thought, “Maybe that’s only scene with that much nudity” I pushed play and continued to watch the show for the next several nights.
Man oh man…on it went. Wonderful storyline. Left you thinking during your day about the damsel and will she ever get back to her time. But the love scenes were almost X-rated. I mean nothing was left to imagination. I’d fast forward through all the while peaking through my fingers as my hand covered my face.
Ever heard that song be careful little eyes what you see? What goes in the mind, if it settles there, will then find its place in the heart. It’s been proven over the ages with mankind. And when something finds it’s way to the heart, it is very hard to remove. That is why taking each thought captive is crucial. And in this case taking what is sent to you through your eyes captive is important as well.
Do you find yourself in a position of teetering in the line. A defined line; your toes are on it and you heels are still back where they should be. That’s not a place God wants for us. That area of the line is an area of confusion and uncertainty. If you find yourself there today, step back and ask your Father to forgive you.
I gave up the show. The woman will be forever lost in the 1700’s in my mind. But that’s ok because the non-fiction relationship I have with my God and pleasing Him has to take front seat than any fictional story ever could.
