I was once looking for an after-dark adventure and thought to myself why not try hooking up with someone around?
I had no idea of how I would go about the situation until I decided to go online.
Solution: Come up with a list of ways of how you can both express love and affection to each other in nonphysical ways. Verbalize the Mistakes Don’t be afraid to call a “timeout.” What I mean by “timeout” is that once a boundary has been crossed, you must verbalize it right away to one another and call it what it was: wrong and dishonoring.
If you don’t have this “timeout” and “pep talk” moment, your flesh will set up a new boundary marker in that new territory.
Talk about a freedom and holy intimacy that brought to our relationship.
It’s really possible and it is definitely worth it!
That would be like if you had a dog and they broke through the neighbors fence and ate their flowers, yet you never told them or replaced the board.
I’ve learned that it’s actually not a purity focus that you and your boyfriend/girlfriend need the most to “hold your horses.” It’s not, “Lord, help me be pure,” but instead, “Lord, help me worship and honor you with my body”.
But purity doesn’t always need to have the most of our focus and energy. Get a New Perspective on Love If you are a physical touch person, and have the motto: “The more they touch, the more they love me,” then you need to get a new perspective on love.
If Jesus is truly front and center in the relationship, and both parties live each day to worship Him, the purity issue will often become an non-issue. The lie of the world is that you have to be physically intimate to express your love to your partner.
Maybe you have managed to withhold from going “all the way,” but that “not so bad” stuff has become commonplace in your relationship?
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Is sexual purity even possible? ” In today’s sex-crazed, , and “purity is lame” culture, I’m sure many of us have found ourselves in one of the scenarios described above. it is really hard for two young, hormone-filled people who are intensely attracted to each other to keep their hands off each other. In the five years we dated before getting married, pursuing purity in our relationship was definitely a real struggle and constant battle.
