Now days, many people say they’ve kissed and gone further because they felt the person they were with was…“the one”. They act as if they have no regrets and may sometimes encourage others to do the same. They rationalize that, “It’s okay if you feel you both love each other.”, and that if they’re the one for you, “Go ahead.” Well, how many times has “the one” come into your life? How many times have you given your valuable body, soul, and spirit to “the one”? How many times have you looked up and “the one” was gone? Almost everyone says it’s okay …but, is it?
Fast forward 20 years. You and “the one” have a family- but not which each other. You’ve probably forgotten about each other, or tag the memory of them as “someone” you thought was “the one”. Actually, it’s sad. Why? Because the Real One won’t have the delight in discovering their treasure untouched; someone got to it, and took it. Furthermore, you and “the one” never see each other again. They’re pretty much a memory, a stranger; a stranger you gave something very valuable and priceless to.
This is something you can never undo. You may think I’m crazy, but it’s true. And, in this sense, I can give myself away if I choose to. However, I want to be able to tell my future husband that I waited for him 110% percent. No one kissed my lips. No one touched my body. No one touched my soul. No one touched my spirit. His treasure is untouched and unshared. Everything is here, and everything is his. It may not seem like it now (especially in the culture we live in today) but in the end, it’ll be worth the wait.
“Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call of the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22
‘Whoever commits adultery with a woman (or, in our case, a guy) lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul.” Proverbs 6:32
