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

Intimacy with Jesus

When God created man, He looked at him and saw that he was good. When Jesus prayed for all believers, He prayed we'd be together with Him and the Father. Jesus went to the cross and died for us, and one day He's coming back to take us with Him. Even with our sins. Even… Continue reading Intimacy with Jesus

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

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

I am 24 years old and I've never had a boyfriend, and I'm waiting until marriage. Purity is very special to me, and I want to encourage others… Continue reading Not Dating and Waiting

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

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

What Does Purity Even Mean?

I think purity can seem self-explanatory, but having a better understanding of what purity is and how to walk in the path of purity, we are better equipped to live the lifestyle. As I was studying for this post, I was completely bombarded with scripture and revelation. I had a deer in head lights look… Continue reading What Does Purity Even Mean?

Encountering God

My "check yourself" line for SOW (Songs of Waiting) is that I can only write about waiting because that is all I know. Everything you read here is from my waiting experience; things I've gone through and things God has done in this journey.  Every time they had an altar call at youth night I'd… Continue reading Encountering God
