You Are Not the Only One in This

I was never vocal about waiting until marriage. No one knew, not even my closest friends. They knew I refrain, but they didn't know I was intentionally waiting until marriage. I don't remember how the conversations came up, but eventually they did. This is not a topic one wants to tell the world, and it… Continue reading You Are Not the Only One in This

She Needs Jesus

This one is for everyone; men, women, and myself. Last week I wrote about how Jesus is the most important quality in a man, and this week I tell you that it is also the most important quality in a woman. Men, look for a woman who has Jesus, and women, we need to seek… Continue reading She Needs Jesus

He Needs Jesus

Ladies, this one is for you. If you want to wait until marriage, you need to be with someone who also wants to wait until marriage. Not only that, but he needs to be intentional about waiting; boundaries, dates, and alone time all need to be taken into serious consideration. And the most important thing… Continue reading He Needs Jesus

Create in Me a Clean Heart

Psalm 51. David's prayer for forgiveness after committing adultery with Bathsheba. David's no-no with Bathsheba is my favorite example to use for waiting until marriage, because this proves that sex isn't just sex. I cannot summarize and talk about the entire psalm because I'd be here all night, so I encourage you to go read… Continue reading Create in Me a Clean Heart

Pray About It

Like every other post I’ve written for Songs of Waiting, I realized that there is so much information and I’ll have to write more posts on specific pieces of each topic. This will be a general post about prayer, but I pray it encourages you. Prayer is so important. We know that. We’re told over… Continue reading Pray About It

The Power of Worship

There came a point in my life when I needed Jesus so much more I'd intentionally seek Him anywhere I could. One of those areas was music, so I began to listen to only Christian music. I thought it would only be for a few weeks while I was walking through the valley, but I'm… Continue reading The Power of Worship

Until the Time is Right

**Please remember that topics like the following post are expected due to the nature of the message coming from Songs of Waiting.** Song of Solomon is a beautiful book of the Bible. It is a raw expression of love between a bride and groom; sometimes graphic and awkward, but always real and telling. The book… Continue reading Until the Time is Right
