I’m writing this article to my Christian sisters that are waiting until they get married to have sex. If you are a Christian guy then you might get something out of it too. If you are not a Christian then this article will probably sound like nonsense to you so that’s my disclaimer… don’t read it.
For those of you still with me…I wrote this to help you think about why and how you are waiting.
If you were waiting or living a celibate life and made a mistake or gave up I want to encourage you to set your course back in the direction in which you began. You have the power despite what you did or what was done to you to turn around and do things God’s way. I have a lot of respect for people that once had sex and then committed their lives to the Lord and brought their sex lives under His authority. It shows that they wisely recognized the need to do things God’s way. I recognize that the lifestyle can be difficult at times but I want to remind you that it’s worth it.
When I was young I decided that I was going to be a virgin when I got married. Some people told me this was a terrible idea. I was given weak arguments as to why I should have sex and was constantly questioned about it. I had to explain my decision. However, I never felt alone in my decision because I was supported by the churches I grew up in, my parents and a lot of my friends that came from different religious backgrounds. Many of them had made similar decisions that they were sticking to.
As a Christian girl it was foundational that you would wait until you got married to have sex. We received promises that one day our virgin prince would find us and we’d raise a wonderful family together. Sex was meant to be the icing on the cake of an already strong relationship. Having sex before hand would rob us of the blessings that God had prepared for us.
