When I am 13 I get a purity ring for my birthday but what is purity? Is it just saving your first kiss or is there more? Here are some things Purity means to me...
First of all saving your heart for the man God brings to you.(this is something I am doing please do not get offended it is totally your and your family's choice on what you do) One thing you can do to save your heart that I am doing is not dating. I think dating is giving away bits and pieces of your heart to men who you may only have fun with for a few months. I have seen some teenagers who date and seem very in love but then they brake up. I don't want this. Since me and my sisters were little not dating has been something Mama and Daddy have told us that we are not doing. I do not mind this choice of there's because I want to stay pure.
Also God will send the man you are to marry. Since God is in control of that I think we should try to save our thoughts. We won't to just wait on who God brings us and not think romantic thoughts about any one. In our home we try not to watch too many Romancy movies because you can see this perfect romance and start wanting to be able to date and have some romance in our lives.
Something that we try to do is dress modestly. I think it is important we don't dress in tight close that show off our body's. We don't want men to fall in love with our looks but our hearts. I wear either a skirt or pants (not tight) and a not tight, not too low cut (white shirts are awesome), shirt.
Also we won't to give God our hearts to take care of. To keep while you are still single. God always takes care of what is HIS. Yes HE does let things happen but do you think God lets things happen because HE wants to Hurt us or Help us? I think if HE brought something into our lives that are challenging that HE would not bring it to Hurt is but to Help us in our faith.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29: 10~12
That pretty much sums it up dosn't it?
I hope y'all are doing well in your walk with the Lord and hope this post has not offended y'all. As I said before it is up to you and your family to decide about this stuff but this is just what I am doing.
PS. I am sure there is more to purity but I am still just learning.
