The Author

My Dear, Sweet, Confusing, Beautiful, Lost, Christian Girl,

I don’t have the answers, but I kind of like you.  I’m not perfect, not even good, but I want to see where this could go.  Would you hear me out and give it a chance?  Who knows, it might even work out.

Sincerely yours,

A Christian Guy

  1. To a Christian Guy,
    I watch my kids do the opposite of what they are instructed to do and it brings me great pain. Great pain to watch them struggle. I believe we cause God great pain as well when He sees us ignoring Him and doing it our way. Yet, He is not surprised by anything. I know, my children must do it their way because, they, like me have free will. Until they decide that pleasing Jesus is the most important thing to THEM, they will make decisions contrary to God’s guidelines for their lives.
    I am a mom of three teenagers who have all gone about dating their own way. Despite what I have taught them and have counseled them about dating, each has been given the freedom to make mistakes and wound others and themselves by it. I did the same and had the same done to me. There are not only consequences, but scars. You were correct about baggage when you enter marriage. Regret. God truly is looking out for everyone’s interest when he gives us His guidance on what we should do to live a happy and fulfilled life. We, like my children, like myself, all go our own way.
    I did dating my way from 14 to 21. Then I was born again, a new creature in Christ. I messed up with a boy once after that. (My boundaries, which included no more than kissing) I made a decision that I simply would not date if I could not control myself. Did not date for a while.. I stayed pure through my future dating relationships through the grace of God, determination, hatred for the sin that sent Jesus to the cross and ruined many relationships and had sex for the first time again 10 years later on my wedding night. It was a joyous relief filled with laughter and joy. Scars from the past? You bet. So happy that God gave me the grace to wait for my wedding night. You gotta want His help though.
    To be disappointed in yourself is to have believed in yourself. Turn your eyes upon Jesus and His strength and take every measure to guard yourself from sinning. Rules? No. Guardrail and heeding red flag warnings? Yes. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.
    Flee from idolatry.(putting someone or sex before God) Flee from sexual immorality. Do not put on the whole armor of God and try to resist it.
    Stand up and FLEE.

  2. I think it’s easier not done of your own will, but when God shows you that [sexual] desire can lead to spiritual death.
