Somebody once described it as walking closer and closer to the edge of a cliff – why see how close you can get before falling off rather than staying far away? Every night we toed the edge we would leave each other on a bad note – unhappy, frustrated with ourselves, and intense remorse knowing that we aren’t staying true to what God wants for us. And in one of our darkest valleys where we couldn’t see God at work in our lives, we actually talked about having sex. We’d known for a long time, beyond a doubt, that we were going to get married and we’d already been engaged 7 months. We’d been waiting for enough money to come to support ourselves, were working our butts off, and fighting this purity battle, all to no avail.
However, after venting about this and talking about just doing it, we both felt terrified and guilty, and realized that neither of us really wanted to cross that line after coming so far.
God had totally convicted our hearts, and I am so thankful for that.
Neither of us wanted any trace of guilt on our first night together, and the thought of blowing it after fighting temptation so long, really scared both of us. Not only will your relationship with each other become more deep and meaningful, but so will your walk with Christ.
You are cracking open the door that could lead to so much more, and the more you toe the edge, the more difficult it is to fight, the more routine those slip-ups become.
The love I have for my daughter opened my eyes to a whole new level of love that is impossible to compare. When the child is with somebody that you’ve decided not to be with it’s complicated and full of hard situations and conversations. Those can be lethal for both the carrier and their future children.
She’s brought me more happiness than I could have ever imagined. And there’s the tendency to try too hard to make it work and give far too many chances.
There’s also unplanned pregnancy, which is something I’ve experienced.
Children are a blessing, and their lives are precious and irreplaceable.
