Daily Reminder on Sexual Purity: #7 out of 21

I, ____________________, commit to be sexually pure. By my words and my actions, I will encourage others to do the same.

“Remaining sexually pure helps you to be confident and truly happy and improves your ability to make good decisions now and in the future.” – For the Strength of Youth

“Virtue is a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards. It encompasses chastity and moral purity. Virtue includes modesty—in thought, language, dress, and demeanor. Virtue provides an anchor on the path leading to our Heavenly Father’s presence. The paths of virtue lead to happiness in this life and in the life to come. The paths of virtue lead to strong families. The paths of virtue contain the foundation stones for the blessings of eternity. They lead to the temple. No wonder Joseph Smith said, “If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things” (Articles of Faith 1:13).

“In another revelation the Lord promises each of us that if we “let virtue garnish [our] thoughts unceasingly,” we will have confidence. He promises that our “confidence [will] wax strong” and “the Holy Ghost will be [our] constant companion” (D&C 121:45–46). Living the standards helps each of us stay on the paths of virtue. Whenever we are worthy of the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, we can always be assured that the daily decisions we each make will be correct even when they are difficult.” – Cherish Virtue by Elaine S. Dalton, emphasis added.

Have I prayed to my Father in Heaven for help resisting temptation and overcoming inappropriate thoughts and feelings?
