Waiting for Marriage for Sex
Sex is GREAT! Yes, who does not like having sex....well they are some people who do not like it. I am not one of them. ;-)
However, as I continue to grow my relationship with Christ. I officially decided August 1, 2012, to not engage in such activity anymore until after marriage. WHOA Mommy, that's going to be VERY HARD! It is! I love having sex...I do BUT...
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18 NIV
I was having a conversation with someone at an event recently and she said...it's hard to go without sex. I was like yes it is...very hard.You see that Men....I said SHE! We women love having sex just as much as you guys...we just don't express it like you guys do. We are a bit more discreet! ;-)
Before when I tried, to go without having sex. Guys would be like...you are not going to find a guy who will be willing to wait, until after marriage to have sex. Guys, want to know what they are getting before they take that step. I mean personally, I would like to know too but I realize that sex isn't everything. It's not what keeps a marriage together or a relationship together. It doesn't solve all of your problems. In fact, even if the sex is great in a relationship - if you have problems...you probably won't even want to have sex. The relationship, will probably still fail despite the good sex. So, SEX isn't everything folks. It's HUGE and very important in a marriage but it is not everything.
I do believe that waiting until marriage will make it more special. This is something that is hard for everyone...no matter what your beliefs.
So, I joined this group in late July called "Pinky Promise" to help encourage me to not engage into any sexual activity...while I wait on my King AND I super duper INCREASED my FAITH in this department...that my KING will be willing to wait! Reading the word and reading what Heather posts has helped a lot. Plus, I try not to put myself in environments or situations now...that will increase my chances of slipping!
Check out the group! God bless you in your walk! We can do it!!! :-)
What is Pinky Promise:
Pinky Promise is...
A promise to honor God with your body and your life. To refuse to give your body to anyone that hasn't paid the price for you called marriage. It's a promise to stay pure before God in EVERY single way. It's a promise that says, I won't test the boundaries in my relationship to see how far I can push it sexually--but instead--I want God to have my heart.
It's a promise to God that you will honor your marriage covenant. It's saying that I promise not to step outside of my marriage, cheat on my spouse and that I'll work through every issue.
