“What’s between my legs is mine and it’s not up for negotiation.
Although, you’re fine but between these legs is where I draw the line.”
Ladies, I know what you are thinking. You are probably saying, I gave up my purity a long time
ago or my purity was taken without my consent and the word “purity” no longer defines who I
am. Guess what? It’s time for you to take your power back and reclaim your purity. There is
freedom in knowing that God has given us a second chance.
Purity simply means, freedom from guilt or evil; chastity, clean, virgin and free from dirt or spotless.
As you can see this definition has multiple meanings and it all depends on your perception of how you view purity. Ladies, it’s never too late to live a life free from guilt and shame. Many of us regret the day we gave ourselves to someone only to receive nothing in return but brokenness, heartache and pain. Forgive yourself! You were not created to live in condemnation. That’s why I love Jesus because He is a mender of broken hearts. There is no pain that God can’t heal. Yes, freedom awaits you today!
Therefore, living a lifestyle of purity starts in your heart before it starts with what’s between your legs. When you make a decision in your heart that sexual purity is what you really want, pray for strength, and deal with those unresolved issues of your past before they deal with you. Whatever you plant in your heart will manifest in your thoughts and grow in your actions. That’s why we should guard our heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. Yes, freedom awaits you today!
Now, this is not to say, that you won’t ever become horny. Every natural and healthy human being gets horny. It’s a natural feeling and it’s not so much of the feeling but the action. As a 34 year of virgin, I am often asked, Lakeisha, do you get horny? The answer is plain and simple….YES! We all get horny. It’s in this moment when I begin to speak to God bluntly. I ask Him to keep me and save me from playing on a temporary thought that can in one decision cause me long term pain and frustration. God created sex to be a pleasurable experience with our husbands. Sex was never created to keep us entangled and stuck. Just be honest with yourself and believe that God cares about every area of your life. Yes, freedom awaits you today!
By now you are probably screaming…Yes! Lakeisha, I want to take my power back and live a lifestyle of purity. In order for this to happen you must first present your plan to God. Ask, Him for strength as you begin to amazing journey. Then you must believe that you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. I would suggest that you find a few accountability partners that can hold you accountable to your plan. Faith, without works is dead. You must engage others in what you are doing. Lastly, you must set boundaries. You know your pressure points. You know what you can handle and what you cannot. Be clear and bold in the beginning about your expectations and whatever you do don’t compromise on your non-negotiables. You are a masterpiece created by the Master of Peace. You are more valuable than you think. Yes, freedom awaits you today!
