Boyfriends do not get husband privileges. I repeat, boyfriends do not get husband privileges!
In 1 Corinthians 6, it says that our bodies are a temple. We honor God with our bodies because it’s not ours to begin with. Coming from someone who had a lot of lustful desires, it’s not worth giving into temptation. If you’re with someone who is not pushing you towards Christ, it may be time to snip snip!
If you are courting, it is important to set boundaries. I’d love to know your story! I am such a sap for love strories. 😀
Although I am single, I have already set boundaries because during my single season, I am learning more about myself and more of who God is daily. I already know what causes a spark for me because of past relationships and I definitely know what God says about fornication. I know it’s not easy, but if you avoid things that will tempt you, then you won’t have to worry about slipping!
It’s also important to discuss boundaries with your partner. That way you will not only respect each other’s decisions, but you will respect God. Guard your hearts, keep it pure, and stay out of that bed if you’re not married! I know this weather is the “cozy” weather. Get cozy with that bible and pray that God helps you kill off fleshly desires.
Fun fact, I have always wanted to get married before having sex. To me, I didn’t care about sex at all. I wanted true love more than anything. I am such a romantic, so I vowed to remain pure and a virgin until marriage.
To those who were in my past, I looked crazy. I was the only one left who was a virgin, especially at that age! If you’ve read my book, “A Sense of Hope”, then you found out what happened to me and how this promise broke off. The devil is such a hater, yall!
One of the amazing things about God is that He is gracious. I have a second chance to do it right as I gave my heart to Him wholeheartedly. I prayed fervently about removing these desires and to have a heart like God for years.
The closer I got to Him, the more I grew disgusted with pleasing my flesh. Now, sex does not cross my mind. If you knew me before, you would be shocked. Anything is possible with Christ. 🙂
Have a wonderful day everyone!
