Encouragement
Way to go Tami! You have been steadfast in your desire to remain pure in order to glorify God and that is certainly commendable! Press on, fight the good fight of faith! God is enough at 42 or 102:)
"fairy tale ending..."
John, I couldn't agree more in that we must not tell our young people that if you play by the rules and keep yourself pure for marriage that "God will bring along the prince charming..." Thankfully I don't ever remember being told that as a young person. If I had been told that I might not be the nearly 42-year-old women I am today who has saved herself and is still praying for God to bring that husband into my life that I so desire. I might have been tempted years ago to say "Forget the rules. It doesn't work like they told me it would so I am just going to go for it." Believe me the temptations have been there and they still are too close to home, but because of my love for my God over my love for myself and most importantly by the grace of God I remain pure to this day. Thank you, Jesus.
