Surfing for God is about the hidden struggles men are facing almost on a daily basis. Men feel the need to hide and suppress their deepest needs and desires. Many men have a hard time displaying intimacy and showing non-sexual affection to a woman. Out of feeling alone, worthless, and insecure we turn to lusting after a woman and watching porn. Regularly as men we turn to masturbation to comfort us and to relief ourselves with an orgasm. But it only makes us feel better for a little while, and then we want more. This book explored the core beliefs men believe about themselves. These beliefs are “I’m A Bad Person”, “Nobody Would Love me as I Am”, “I Can’t Get My Needs Met By Depending on Others”, “Sex is My Most Important Need”. The beliefs were formed early and the big issue is that we have believed them to be true. When we get done viewing porn, we still feel empty and ashamed that we have committed this act.
Michael John Cusisk knows firsthand the effects of viewing porn and lusting after woman. At only twenty four years old, he was going to adult bookstores, visiting strip clubs, drinking alcohol to numb his shame, and paying prostitutes money for sex. Eventually he revealed his secret life to his wife and she was devastated and heartbroken. He also shared a personal story about never going on a date until he was twenty-three years old. He had to face the truth of his brokenness in order to gain healing. Throughout this book he will guide readers into breaking free from the strongholds placed on their life regarding porn.
I would recommend this astonishing book about dealing with the triggers that makes men lust towards women and view porn to ALL men! Satan is bombarding us with many more sexual images than ever before. I’m twenty-two and never been on a date so I connected with Michael’s story. This book has shown me the truth about my own struggle with viewing porn and masturbation. I will admit that I turned to porn when I was feeling lonely and broken from my past. Really I was looking for affirmation that I was a real man, acceptance, and affection. This book helped me to know that I wasn’t alone in my struggle. It was comforting to know that other men were going through the same type of things I was dealing with.
I also realized that I believed the deadly lies from the enemy. I believed in my core that no one would love me for who I truly was. I especially enjoyed the hope that Michael shared in overcoming the temptations of lusting and porn. This book assisted me in believing that I was pure and clean in the eyes of Christ. When I received Christ as my personal Savior, he took my sins and forgave me for all my sins. This book has helped me to identify the triggers that caused me to look at porn and masturbate. I truly believe that this book would benefit men if they will take to heart the concepts and deal with their feelings and brokenness. Being vulnerable is something that most men hate, me included, but it leads to our healing no matter how painful it might be. If you’re struggling with viewing porn, then this book is written just for you!
