There’s a gap—no matter how small—between yearning and sin, desire and giving in. Such desires should trigger a prayer in you, to draw you closer to God in fellowship.
For a single lady, who is matured for marriage, there are times when you feel like having ‘this special person’ in your life to pamper you and make you feel like a ‘woman’. Like it or not, think healthily about it or not, pray against it or not—this desire for intimacy happens even to the most pure-minded. What do you do when it pays its impromptu visit?
- Look for a ‘so-called harmless’ chat partner on social media?
- Indulge in thought only?
- Deny it’s there?
- Hate yourself?
- Eat chocolate?
I am not of the opinion that these desires should be denied, they should be ordered rightly. There’s a gap—no matter how small—between yearning and sin, desire and giving in. It is in that moment that we get to choose what our actions would be. We can choose to follow our urges head-long or look for a ‘way of escape’. Such desires should trigger a prayer in you, to draw you closer to God in fellowship. You can also read the Word of God or talk to your Pastor or a friend you respect about it.
This is not a formula, as it may not work for everyone at all times but we should always flee temptation by whatever means work best for us.
Sometimes people pressure you to get married, this is one of the pressures that comes with being single. Don’t get angry, it is only a phase. Work, plan, pray, towards the next phase of life .
Have you ever wondered why you were born a woman? The woman is the essence of creation because before she was made. Finding purpose is a universal heart cry.
