Being real ain't always saying what's on your mind. Being real is being able to hold out for God blessings and stop trying to make things happen on your own. Being real is crying out to God about how horny you are because you've been holding out for your husband that ain't yet come. Being real is having a praise in spite of your circumstances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the age of 20 I said that I was going to become celibate and I did until my 21st birthday. The turn up was real. I repented and got myself together. I stayed strong until I was 25 and feel for a guy that wasn't even worth my time. Emotional caught up when I should have been focused on other things. He was my distraction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That one slip up cost me a year of pain. You see when you have sex, you connect with someone spiritually. It's what you may call a soul tie. And when that person isn't your spouse you are dealing with all the stuff they are dealing with spiritually as well. That was a burden I should have never had. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And from 25 until I was 32, I held out. I held out for my husband, who was well worth it!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Celibacy is hard but it gets easy. Even when you do mess up, dust yourself off, repent and move on. He coming baby girl. Just wait a little bit longer....IT'S WORTH IT!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How real are you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to read more about how to be satisfied in your singleness while waiting on God, then check out my book The S Factor: Guide to being single, satisfied and saved.
