Thank you for sending in your dilemma. Firstly, I would like to make it clear that if you have not done so already, please go to your nearest clinic to have a sexual health checkup. Spirituality aside this is important when you encounter any changes. This is in relation to the spots you previously mentioned on your vaginal area.
Moving forward, another concern is how this affected you emotionally. I do feel as though you may need to pause and reflect, because if we do not know where we are coming from how do we know where we are going?
Ask yourself these three questions:
1. What do I want from my future spouse?
2. Have I healed from these men and my experiences with them?
3. Are my ways pleasing God?
I think most importantly, in my opinion, you may have misunderstood what the woli said at ishona. We should be very careful not to add or assume conclusions on what God did not say.
The word of God makes it clear in the book of Colossians 3:5 “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.”
God does not want you to be engaging in sex outside of marriage. A prophet sent by God will see the things that will lead us to temptation of such and will tell us to refrain or avoid such activity. Hence why I said a moment of reflection is needed – Are my ways pleasing God?
Overthinking will not solve any of your issues, repenting of your sins and getting closer to God in prayer would definitely help. There are times where we do not require the guidance of a woli but we require the hand of God. If you want a different output you need to change the input. I suggest doing something differently and that is building a stronger relationship with Christ. Seeking God directly for answers my sister and the outcome may just amaze you.
