For one thing you want to protect yourself emotionally, because unless married there is unfortunately always a lingering possibility of the relationship ending.
By giving up such a gift, you risk intense pain if the guy decides he’s done.
There comes a time when you need to have a serious conversation, with yourself and your significant other.
It can bring you closer when you both come to an understanding on boundaries; and if you disagree, it probably wasn’t meant to be! Get ready for a special time of mother/daughter fellowship, as Inspired 31 hosts Dannah Gresh on February 3, 2013 in Camarillo, CA.
Enjoy a elegant tea party, worship, and deep teachings by Dannah from her upcoming book “Get Lost”.
And long after you ahev both been married, such testing and growth will put you in a good position to weather the other tsts and temptations that will come your way.
Regarding your concern that you will extinguish your sexual emotions - the first thing to say is that we can trust God’s good design for our lives.
He has said that sex is to be reserved for marriage, so you can be confident that you will not harm yourselves by keeping that command.
Why not look on this next two years as an opportunity to work hard on communication, and enjoying one another’s company in completely non-sexual ways?
Before we were saved we were sexually active together but have since been working very hard at stopping this because we know it is not pleasing to God and will make that gift He reserves for marriage less special once we are married.
We have been pure in that sense for about 4 months now, but we constantly struggle with fooling around.
Almost as important as purity itself, is the reason why. Now, applying the Bible’s truth is great, and reason enough for anything, but you need to find out why you want to stay pure.
There are the practical reasons like, avoiding STD’s and unplanned pregnancy, but I believe it is much more than that.
This event is geared toward teenage girls and their mothers. If you are interested in any other events, you may inquire with Simone at [email protected] our upcoming Pure Freedom and Secret Keeper Girl Tours in California during Fall 2013.
