How do you do it? How are you still a virgin? How do you convince your boyfriend and now fiancé not to have sex? You have to want to give up?
2015 is here! Jesus!
New Years 2015 was very special to me. I am a New Years baby and Jan 1st was my 29th birthday. This New Years is the last one before the big 30, but more importantly it’s my LAST birthday as a single woman, oh and yes, it is my last year as the VAUNTED VIRGIN.
I am a little under 6 months away from being MARRIED! The road to this present time hasn’t been easy but it has been so worth it!
My forever response to years of questions? JESUS!
I remembered the promises God made to me. The promise that I would be married some day. The promise that I would walk in my destiny and be a role model to many. The promise that I would impact the world.
God never gave up on me even when I wanted to give up on Him! Even when I didn’t see the finish line and I would cry myself to sleep night after night, wanting to give in He was always there, pursuing me.
God would always, either give me a word through scripture or send someone right at the moment I needed them with words of advice. Jesus!
I am here to dispute all the statements that say it can’t be done and living for Christ is not exciting. My life has been a movie and after 29 years of production, I am ready to show it. The belief that it’s too hard to follow Jesus is not so. It is not easy but, I am a living witness that God will give you all the strength you need to be successful.
People ask me if I thought this was possible and honestly, I didn’t. Jesus!
I will tell my testimony for the rest of my life to encourage all who strive to live for Christ! I would not change a time or a heartache. I embrace the seasons of loneliness and the nights of tears. It was all worth it and still is. Everything has made me stronger.
If you are at a point in your life and you are questioning God and what He wants you to do, just trust Him. If you become anxious pray this simple one word prayer; JESUS!
This will be the first of many pieces and the start to a new ministry focus for me: Strength in Purity. By God’s grace I will write my first book before the end of this year and launch my first conference. Stay tuned!
