The One who made this world didn’t have to make it beautiful. Strictly speaking, beauty isn’t necessary. We could communicate without music. We could be nourished by things that aren’t delicious. We could reproduce without the pleasure of sex. Why do we have all these miracles of sense experience? Why is there beauty and pleasure at all? If we live in a world of unnecessary beauty, it must mean that the heart that beats behind this world is a happy heart. It must mean the One who made us is exceedingly joyful and wants to share His joy with us.
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.
