No Sex = Yay!!

Well, I am HAPPY to say. I reached my Anniversary of NO SEXUAL INTERCOURSE!! Whoop Whoop!!! :-) This is only exciting because I am not married! Had I been married and we hadn't had sex in a year!?! We got some serious problems on our hands! Lol...but for real! 

Anyhow, as I reached my anniversary. The lil enemy reminded me: Well, Coasta you have made it to a year mark let's see you make it to two years. Oh, the enemy won't let you REJOICE in your moment. He is quick on making you feel like you can't do something.

However, in the past I can't tell you how many times he won and had me right in his lil corner. I said I wasn't going to have sex before marriage and some intentionally and some not so intentionally I went a long period without having any type of sex. In 2011, after my divorce, I said I was going to seriously do it this time and not engage. Sadly in 2012 I missed it, life got hard and I wanted my drug and I relapsed. Though, I have never in my life did any type of drugs. Sex was my drug. It made me feel good when I was feeling lousy. Sooo sadly I turned to my comforter.

In January 2013, I made the commitment to not let anyone talk me into it nor let my flesh talk me into it. That flesh is a smooth talker. I said I was going to seriously do it this time! And through Christ I did it. Yay! I haven't even kissed a guy either. So, this is very good behavior! :-) Pats self on the back! Though, over the summer I will admit I did struggle with the idea. I wasn't seeing anyone but the flesh had desires...and I asked my Heavenly Father to help me and He gave me this word: If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left. - Hebrews 10:26

When I read that. I thought well that was pretty harsh. Like ouch! BUT it stuck with me and I have not forgotten that word. So, that killed that feeling for the moment. Months flesh was speaking to me. Coasta... Ha...but I didn't give into it. So, this year January 2014 I was like YES I made it to my year mark. Whoo hoo!! Now, I want to make sure I remain FAITHFUL in this area. So, what am I going to do to ensure I don't fall into no ones bobby trap!? Hmm.

Then, I received this when filling out paperwork for my church:

Yeah, do you see it says: You must refrain from such things as ---> SEXUAL IMMORALITY! Shock face! Lol. No really, when I read that I was like oooo Pastor is not playing!!! This is my extra security to help me stay on track. God was looking out for me. Ha. That's the only thing on the list that I have had issues with in my past. Thank goodness, I actually read documents before signing and I only sign if I will stay true to the commitment.

Then after this...just out of the blue. I had some strong desires for sex. Seriously. I was like oh Lord! What is going on!? Well, I am normal. That's for sure. I was like what cause this because I was doing good. Then it hit me I watched that "Being Mary Jane" show for the first time the other night online and all that sexual stuff - must had hit a button. Yep. So, no more watching that show for me! Thank goodness, I don't have cable.

Then at church recently closing out our Fast. Pastor invited all the Singles up to re-commit their Singleness to Christ..meaning we would remain PURE, HOLY and COMMITTED to Christ. 

So, yeah all of these things were my additional help to keep my little butt straight until my wedding night. :-) People are watching & God is watching. So, I will be on my best behavior. I made a commitment and it will be kept! Take that Satan! As, we will still need to be reminded at times...why are we doing something to keep us motivated. I wrote scriptures and my reasons for being celibate on an index card, that I can pull out and remind myself in my moments. 

As Christians, we are ambassadors for Christ so we must represent Him well. When we know the TRUTH, we need to be walking in Truth and living the Truth of God's word.

If you are not living the Truth and you know the Truth. I encourage you to get on board and BE RIGHTEOUS before God so that YOU can have eternal life.

"All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous." Romans 2:12-13
