One thought on “5 Lessons Purity Teaches Us

  1. Hi Jessica!

    As an almost 37 year old virgin, I have just begun to realize the real true meaning of the word “purity.” I am now into my second FULL month of NO masturbation! & I am SO PROUD of myself! You said it best, when you said “by the grace of God alone.”

    I used to wonder if virgins actually felt like virgins & wondered what it actually felt like, to “feel like a virgin.” I never “felt” like a virgin, because I was so caught up in masturbation. Now that I am actually pure (free from sexual sin), for the FIRST time ever, I actually feel like a virgin. It feels so awesome! I can now talk the talk & walk the walk, all by the grace of God! NEVER underestimate the power of prayer! I pray all the time, for the Lord to take away these urges & to control my body that He created. He has been doing just that & so much more! How awesome is He!!!!!!!!

    We live in a sex sick world & sex is EVERYWHERE! We Christians, single & not, are supposed to guard our hearts & minds. That’s not an easy thing to do, when my eyes see it everywhere. In the end, it’s MY choice & I am choosing the Lord. I have a brand new much stronger & deeper relationship with Him. I am stronger now, than I have ever been. I am so totally in love with Him & I cry when I speak of Him. I even cry everytime I get on that intimate level with Him. He is my choice!
