From the tip of my toes, to the top of my head they’re gonna know I love You! From the tip of my toes, to the top of my head they’re gonna see I’m Yours!
Tip Of My Toes/I Have Found My Joy (Steffany Frizzell Gretzinger)
Reminder: I need Jesus just as much as someone who hasn’t met him.
If you’re not a happy single person, you won’t be a happy married person. Another human being can’t fulfill your happiness. Only God can do that. Stop looking to boyfriends or girlfriends to make you happy. It starts with a relationship between you and God first.
Jesus, I need to give myself up. I am not strong enough to love You and walk with You on my own. I can’t do it, and I need You. I need You deeply and desperately. I believe You are worth it, that You are better than anything else I could have in this life or the next. I want You. And when I don’t, I want to want You. Take all of me. Have Your way with me.
I think God sometimes allows us to be ignored by people we care about so we’ll realize that He is the only One Who is here for us at ALL times.
Reminder: You have been remade.
Sometimes we let our thoughts get caught up in the past and we obsess over our old struggles and sins. When this happens, we start to feel guilty and beat ourselves up for what we used to do wrong. When you find yourself stuck in that rut, stop for a moment and…
There is a joy available that the deepest grief cannot put out. No circumstance or person can take away the joy God gives.
How would you ever learn unconditional love if you were married to someone who met all the conditions? How would you ever learn mercy, patience, longsuffering, heartfelt compassion if you were married to someone who never failed you, who was never difficult with you, who never sinned against you, who was never slow to acknowledge their sin or ask for forgiveness? How would you ever learn grace to pour out your favor on someone who did not deserve it if you were married to someone who was always deserving of all good things? The main purpose of marriage is that, through your marriage, you become conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. Marriage, I believe, is the greatest instrument of sanctification.
Why is waiting until marriage to have sex so important? What if you do wait and the future wife (or even you) is awful? Sex is important in a relationship and if y'all aren't good that can ruin relationships...
1. The Bible talks about being pure before marriage. 2. I want to one day be able to say I waited for my future wife all my life when I had chances to have sex with other girls. Would you want someone to be like yeah I had sex with like 15 other people before you but baby I love you so much. Would it not lose it meaning? It’s meant to be shared with someone really special. While I do agree in someway it’s healthy for a marriage to have an enjoying sex life, I disagree 110% that it makes or break a relationship with someone. You’re going to not be with someone you love because the sex isn’t up to your stand yet? That’s mind blowing and crazy talk. Be real you don’t think they’ll get better hahaha? I mean lets be real practice makes perfect you know….. *wink wink* Bottom line: I have no shame in saying I’m waiting for marriage for sex. If you think sex with make or break your relationship with someone you love then you love them for the wrong reason. God bless.
And I pray that you no longer seek happiness from the past, but rather you set your sails forward, to a land that is pure and wonderful. I pray that you no longer stare into the shallows of empty promises, but that you dive into the depth of an ocean of guarantees. May you feel the winds of hope, and smell the scent of joy, may your heart be alive again as it was meant to be. For you are with a better captain, you are with a true sailor, a true leader; You are sailing with Christ, and He is always sure to lead us home.
