Sex.... A gift from God!

What did or have your parents told you about sex? Maybe they just sat you down and told you everything, maybe they gave you a book, maybe they didn't make it awkward but they still discussed it, or it might have never been mentioned at all. No matter which one it is how has their way of presenting the idea affected you? How do you think of sex? Is it dirty, a sin, something good for movies but not for you, a duty, something only guys like, or a gift from God, something pleasurable, a wonderful bonding that only God could have created? Think about it for a minute.... Our life is consumed by advertisement, movies, commercials, pop up adds, and so much more that diminishes the meaning of sex. Even our churches see it as a hush hush subject. Today I want to share with you God's plan for sex and how He views it! Do you care to follow me and see what the Bible has to say about sex? I challenge you to dig deep into this.... Find out the truth!

1 Corinthians 7:3-7
The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife.  Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. I say this as a concession, not as a command.  I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.

I'm not going to copy on here Song of Solomon, but it is the same there. It shows how God created sex to be viewed. Sex was created by God.... It is not dirty, wrong, or shameful as long as it is done in the area of marriage. The statistic is that 1 out of every 4 girls have been sexually abused. That is beyond sad.... You may be one of those girls, but here is the thing that is NOT what God made sex for... He made it to be enjoyable, pleasing, freeing, and exciting! If you are noticing that you may not be viewing sex in the way God intended pray about it.... Many women enter marriage believing that sex is just some type of "duty" that comes along with being married. It is nothing like that! Below is a list of things sex is.... If you have a problem believing any of these I challenge you to get into God's word and begin asking Him to form His view of sex into your view of Sex!

Sex is....
~ Beautiful
~Created by God
~A gift from God
~Made to be pleasurable
~Made to be enjoyable
~Made to not be a joke
~Made to bond two people together
~A creative way God had to create children
~Something you should not withhold from your husband
~Something you should not be scared of

Girls, I'm about to share with you a piece of information and you might not like, but it is the truth. Guys do not like girls being all over them. Do you disagree? I work with youth and I've began noticing how pushy and smothering girls can be in the name of "flirting". I was talking to one guy the other day who is rather cute and as we were talking a girl came up and just hugged him (A mighty close hug I might add.) and didn't seem to even notice or care that he was in the middle of a conversation. He kinda sighed, but I didn't say anything. In a minute his phone kept going off. When he checked it it was another girl who knew he was at church, but still wanted to talk. That's when he asked, "Do they not know if i like them I will let them know?" I laughed, but had to agree with him. I soon noticed a girl waving at him rather dramatically. By this time I'm really beginning to feel sorry for the guy! I'm sure it is not always this dramatic, but the more I started to watch the more I realized how all over guys some girls can be. Sweet friends, this is not the way God made it to be.... Yes, some girls who are flirts get all the guys, but the thing is the guys she attracts are not the ones you want. Believe it or not some guys actually want a decent girl who hasn't, "been around" The world tells you that you have to throw yourself on a guy and then he will just not be able to resist! God's view of love is different though.... He made the man to be the aggressor. Have you ever heard of playing hard to get?? This may be hard to wrap your mind around, but guys actually like this... simply bc it is mysterious and intriguing. It is not like some girl laying everything out on the table. They want to work for it.... Of course, every guy is different, but by large most guys who are looking to God would rather go after the girl than the girl go after them!

So, I beg you... please think next time before you throw yourself on a guy! How much better is it to have the guy txt you first than you always txting him first? Yes, txt him first sometimes and if he shows interest in your let him know that you are interested in him. Please do not lower yourself though thinking that you are making yourself look better.

Being real,

Questions to ponder....

I want you to think about these questions…. You may want to turn some worship music on, get a journal or Bible, do whatever! Be real with yourself though…. I do not expect any comments on this post. You can comment if you would like to. There might be one question that sticks out to you. Just think over these questions…. See what God wants to work on in and through you. Love you and praying for you!

1. Do I confidentially pass on to others what has been said to me in confidence?

2. Can I be trusted?

3. Am I a slave to dress, friends, work, or habits?

4. Am I self-conscious, selfpitying, or self justifying?

5. Did the Bible live in me today?

6. Do I give the Bible time to speak to me everyday?

7. Am I enjoying prayer?

8. When did I last speak to someone about my faith?

9. Do I pray about the money I spend?

12. Do I insist on doing something in which my conscience is uneasy about?

13. Am I defeated in any part of my life?

14. Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, touchy, or distrustful?

15. How do I spend my spare time?

16. Am I proud?

17. Is there anyone I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold resentment towards, or disregard? If so, what am I doing about it?

18. Do I grumble or complain constantly?

19. Is Christ real to me?

20. Do I honor God in the words that I say and the thoughts that i think?

Are you determined? I am! I'm determined to wait until God brings not just the "right" guy, but the "perfect" guy! We talk alot about purity and waiting, but are you saving your heart? When you fall for every guy that seems close to the right one or if he is just cute you are wearing your heart out. This is my goal.... When i say this I'm not saying it should be your goal or anything like that. I'm simply sharing my heart with you. I refuse to go day to day wondering if each guy i look at is the "one". I refuse to be involved in pointless relationships just to feel loved, when in all reality I am not being truly loved. I refuse to give away meaningless "I love you" just to feel wanted. I refuse to dress in the morning with the thought in mind, "Would guys look at me if I wear this?". All in all I refuse to fall away from God in the slightest just to enjoy a male companionship. I.REFUSE.TO.SETTLE....

Do you refuse to settle?

Revelation 3:16 So because you are lukewarm and neither hot or cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

I choose to be hot... what about you?

Girl Law!

Have you ever heard of the, "Girl Law"? There may be more girls laws, but this is my girl law!

Girl Law: If another girl is dating, talking to, or even just likes a guy he is off limits! KEEP AWAY!

There have been many examples lately of how this rule has not been followed and people were greatly hurt. The girl law kinda goes along with the golden rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!). Would you want some girl coming after your man?! Of course not! What if they aren't officially dating? If he has something, "going on" with another woman or even if you know another girl likes him, keep your hands off! Here's the thing... If he is meant to be the one for you he will wait! Nothing is worse than to go to a church and all the women who use to be best friends are now worst enemies and they are fighting over some guy. Their friendship is ruined all because of some guy. How sad is that? Is this the way we are suppose to be? NO! Girls, we often choose a fleeting moment of pleasure over a life long friend or a chance to be a Godly example. Is it truly worth it?

While we are on this subject.... married men are the same way. It seems like a total different ball game when we talk about marriage, yet is it? I do not think so. If we did not practice cheating when we were just dating it wouldn't seem ok or even possible once we were married.

Do you get this?! I challenge you to follow the girl law.... I can promise you it will make your life way less dramatic and way more Christlike!

Praying for you as you seek God!
