14 years ago I was a teeny bopper who signed on my TRUE LOVE WAITS commitment card to be sexually abstinent until I get married. I even wrote a love letter for my future mate, intended only for him to read after we got married and a love letter for our future baby too!
By God’s grace I kept my word and the love letter was for Rocky’s eyes only on our first night together as married couple. He was deeply moved and we’re both teary eyed as we read it.
If you ask me how the road to purity was when I was still single? It was not smooth sailing and…
Was it easy? NO.
Was it worth it? YES!
Understanding the word purity never dawned on me until I grew older. I have always equated purity with virginity but the difference between the two is quite big. One can be a virgin and stay committed to being sexually abstinent but purity in itself is something we need to fight for everyday, be it in the words that we speak, our actions or even in our thoughts.
Purity is not a thing of the past, it is here in the now where struggles and temptations are real but we have a choice and we must choose to protect it no matter what it takes. It is a gift from God. To pursue purity means we need to trust God and admit that we are in need of a loving Savior. Purity is all about what Jesus has already done at the cross.
Have a surrendered heart to God, renewed mind and begin to reflect on the purity of the Father.
Trust THE ONE to give you the one! Your worth is in Jesus Christ!❤️❤️❤️
