I really need prayers for my twin sister.
I’m not planning on discussing details…. I just ask that you please lift her up in prayer.
Late Night Thoughts: Why Swearing off Boys is kind of Genius.
So…. I have had my fair share of boys in life. Some whom I’ve even claimed to date (I’ve only been with one to be honest with you all). Everyone always says, “Boys will be boys.” Indeed that is true. Boys will be boys, so stop expecting them to be men or even gentlemen.
As you get older, you start to realize that boys/guys are really immature as compared to their older counterparts. A boy at 18 is not the same at 25. The level of responsibility is drastically different, and the older version of himself feels entitled to a lot more than the younger version (duh).
…. which is why swearing of Boys (and only boys) isn’t such a bad idea. In fact, it’s kind of recommended. God urges us to wait on Him and his awesome plans for us. Check out: Psalm 27:14, Isaiah 40:13, 2 Peter 3:9, and many more .
Boys are ephemeral. They like you until they don’t or until their hormones cool down or until another girl walks by. I will generalize and say that all boys are the same because those who do not act like boys are men, and men are not all the same.
Stop chasing boys. They are like rabbits, forever hopping from place to place and once you catch them you realize they don’t want to stick around. (Lol, did I just compare boys to rabbits?) Instead I urge you to wait for men, especially gentlemen. These creatures do exist and trust me when I say they want to know you not because of your body, face, or any other superficial reason, but because they’re ready to see God work in their lives.
Just love people without trying to point at them and identify their sin. Leave that for God, you don’t need to be Holy Spirit Jr.
Do not face the day until you have faced God in prayer.
When your number one priority is your relationship with God, every other relationship falls into place.
If God could run out of grace, He would’ve for me by now. And yet every morning I wake up, He says, “There is more, there is still more.”
We have the best deal in the universe: trade in your sin for Eternal Glory and Endless Joy and the Creator of the Universe. Trade in your sorrow for rejoicing. Trade in your hurts for healing. Trade in a spirit of rebellion for a Spirit of fruitfulness. Trade in death for life. Trade in idols for Jesus. That’s a pretty good deal, you know.
