I waited. I didn’t die.

I waited. I didn’t die.

The other day, I went to a restaurant to pick my favorite bread. In my opinion, that very restaurant makes the only edible bread in the entire state. 

It was meant to be brief – pick bread and dash home, but as I reached for the bread on the showglass, a corner of my eyes sighted a section of chilled drinks in the transparent fridge in front of me and I suddenly became thirsty. 

Suddenly , there was a growing seemingly uncontrollable temptation to order for a chilled drink. I was fasting from carbonated drinks so the option available was bottled water. 

Bottled water in that restaurant was three times the price in regular stores. Aside that I had an entire pack of bottle water in my room. Buying one cos of “longerthroat” will only amount to mere waste of resources.

For some weird reasons, my throat just kept itching for water, itching to buy chilled drinks that I knew I didn’t need. All I needed at that point was a little bit of patience and self-control until I got home. 

Eventually, I overcame. I waited until I got home few minutes later, and guess what? 

I didn’t die. 

Temptations to engage in sexual immorality has been found to increase even more amongst those who are in a relationship and looking to get married soon. 

Chances are that the “drink” suddenly looks too chilled and irresistible. The thirst and longing to “taste” become strangely unbearable as the relationship progresses. 

You have been patiently obeying God all these days, “But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

‭‭James‬ ‭1:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

If you fall for the desires and longings of flesh now, the price is too costly. If you wait to get “home” (get married before God and godly witnesses), you will drink as much as you want (literarily). 

Beloved lovers in relationships, wait to get home. You will not die. Honour God in your bodies.

Say No to Premarital Sex.
