The Wait

I waited.
18 years for my first kiss.
I held it because I wanted it to be special.
Then I met a guy that I thought was nice.
I liked him, he liked me, we were both christians.
We got to know each other during the months I worked at his church.
My last day serving there he kissed me.
I thought we were going to date.

I met his sister. She told me he had lied to me about a lot of things from his life. I cried.

I waited.
19 years till my first boyfriend.
I held it because I wanted it to be special.
Then I met a guy that I thought was nice.
I liked him, he liked me, we were both christians.
We got to know each other during the year I studied at his school.
3 months later we started dating.
He pushed over and over for intimacy and I gave in. We did lots of sexual things, but sex.
I thought he was going to propose to me.

I talked to my friend. She told me he had lied to me about being faithful. I cried.

I waited.
23 years for my first time.
I held it because I wanted it to be special.
Then I met a guy that I thought was nice.
I liked him, he liked me, we were both christians.
We got to know each other during the years we were friends.
The last month before moving abroad he pushed me to have sex with him. I fell in.
I thought we were going to marry.

I met his real self. I knew I wasn't more than a night for him, just a girl that passed through his life. I cried.

I waited.
25 years for my Real Prince.
I held it because I wanted it to be special.
Then I met a Man that I was really nice.
We got to know each other during the past decades.
He loved me so I could love him.
He gave me His life so I would be his.
My life since then has been amazing.
I know we are going to be together forever.

I met his Father. He told me I'm special for Him. That I am His Daughter too. That I am loved, cherished and pure. He said I can trust His Son. His Son did all he needed to do so I could be saved. He touched me. I smiled.

A.U.M. asked me to tell my story. I've been sending a couple of posts to help man and woman to trust God. If it wasn't for Jesus Christ who saved me and made me whole again, it would end up being just one more story.
I want to encourage y'all, man and woman, to wait on God.

The problem is not to kiss, to date or to have sex. The problem is to put yourself and your desires above Him. To decide YOU CAN CHOOSE your life. That YOU CAN RESIST devil without Him. That YOU DON'T NEED TO RUN. But that is not the truth from the Bible.

The Bible says SEEK FIRST the kingdom of God. (Matthew 6:33)
The Bible says we can DO NOTHING without Jesus. (John 15:5)
The Bible says RUN from temptation. (I Corinthians 6.18)
The Bible says "every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us." (II Timothy 3:16 - The Message).

So seek first the kingdom of God; lean on Jesus to obey His teachings; run whenever you face temptation and STUDY THE BIBLE consistently to know the truth, to face your sin, to correct your mistake and be trained to live God's way.

This way, you will be put together and shaped up for the tasks He has for you.

Your Sister.
