God is never asking you to pretend something isn’t tough when it is. Denial is not a fruit of the Holy Spirit, ever.
Sex is not dirty. Your sexual desires are not evil. Whoever told you that lied to you. Sex is a good thing, a beautiful thing, and that is why God made it. It is meant to approached in a specific way with good boundaries, but it is not dirty.
“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10
A life that matters does not mean a life that is universally beloved by religious people. There are a certain number of church people who will not think you’re amazing, no matter how you serve the folks around you. Remember that they treated Jesus the same way. God, and only God, gets the final say on whether or not your life matters.
Serving other people is about getting outside yourself- your own troubles and headaches. You deal with that stuff all the time. Helping someone else is a chance to forget about all that for a little while.
A Brand New Worship Song For Folks Who Need To Remember Who They Are And Whose They Are Today:
Some very dear friends helped me play and sing this simple new worship song that gets to the heart of why so many of us are wandering around feeling aimless: we’ve forgotten where real life comes from. We find the most purpose, the most meaning and the most life when we are following Jesus. He made us, He bought us, we are His. He is our true source of life.

You have to take some time to be self-focused (not selfish) before you can be others-focused or God-focused. Figuring out what makes you tick, what brings you to life, I guarantee you there is a way the Lord wants to use whatever that is to serve other people.
If you need a little bit of worship and a good word for the middle of your week, you can get it all here:

Your spiritual life will have highs and lows. That is just the way it is. The two most important things to remember in those lows: 1) My feelings don’t change the fact that God loves me and my sins are forgiven. 2) it’s not always going to be this way.
Is there scientific proof that following Jesus makes you more beautiful? Exhibit A: The ladies of our Women’s Ministry. All beautiful, and all love Jesus. So…in your face science!
