If you are saving yourself for marriage, ask yourself why you are doing it? Is it because your mom told you to, your teachers or your pastor?
To love another is a choice. It’s a choice you make every day to decide to continue loving, to deal with all their little quirks and flaws, in the same way you would want yours to be overlooked.
I think the greatest way to start is to begin analyzing who you are looking up to yourself. Who is the model you currently compare your life to? Who inspires you?
You are on your own beautiful, amazing path. It is up to you to shape it however you see fit. You have the choice every morning to wake up and keep going, keep pushing yourself to become someone you aspire to be.
I am a mere human being, incapable of doing what is good and right perfectly or completely, no matter how much I try.
Sometimes we are disappointed, not because what we get is bad, but because our expectations are in the wrong place.
Too often we want to fix things in our lives ourselves, or we think we have a better way of doing it, but the truth is, only the one who created you can bring you true inner peace.
You have the power to control how circumstances will change you and grow you. You can choose to let yourself sink with the negativity or instead rise up with courage and optimism.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and fall in love with Him first. He is the only one who can fully and completely love you, after all.
Oh the beauty of our generation! The glorious swiping apps that make finding “love” as easy as choosing to match with someone on a collection of four of five pictures they filtered and selected to use on their profile.
