Let me clear the air real quick. This message was originally sent to and directed towards teenage girls; however, this message needs to be told to and heard by any female that is single, dating, or engaged.
Let’s talk… about boys/guys/men/relationships/YOU.
If you haven't already, find a place where you can sit alone and think about something… Think about the kind of guy you want to date, what kind of man you want to marry. I'm not talking about looks, or materialistic things. I'm talking about the character, Christian living, respectful (of you, your body and your image), their lifestyle… all of those kinds of things. Write those thoughts down and keep them close.
Let’s talk about you first.
Do you date the next guy that walks in and shows interest in you, or are you careful to see what their relationship with Jesus is like first? Do you know your self-worth and value? If you don't, let me just tell you. You are worth SO much. Your heart, body and body image is worth so much. Your walk with Christ is worth so much... Don't compromise that or walk away from Jesus because of a guy/relationship. There is NO perfect guy out there, just like you aren't perfect. But there is someone out there that is perfect for you. Save your heart emotional damage and don't date just any guy. Jesus looks at you as a prized possession whose heart should be kept safe and protected. Don't allow any guy to destroy that or you!
Let’s take this conversation deeper.
Any guy that is more interested in what is going on underneath your clothes is not worthy of you. Any guys that is more interested in you in any sexual way, is not worthy of you. Any guy that talks disrespectfully to you or of other females is no guy worthy of you. Any guy that is more consumed with his self is no guy worthy of you. Any guy that makes you do things that you know are not right, is no guy worthy of you. Any guy that makes you feel uncomfortable, is NO guy worthy of you.
Any guy that loves Jesus and follows Him, is worthy of you. Any guy that realizes you're cute and attractive but knows self-control, is worthy of you. Any guy that respects you as a girl/lady and puts you before himself, is worthy of you. Any guy that knows the sexual desire is real and there, yet knows you're BOTH worth waiting for until marriage, is worthy of you. Any guy that pursues Jesus and worships him more than he worships you, is worthy of you. Any guy that seeks God for his life is worthy to have you in his.
Guard your heart. Protect your body. Don't post pictures of yourself on social media that would lure a guy in - you are degrading yourself. Don't send guys inappropriate pictures of yourself - you are degrading yourself. It feels great to know someone finds you attractive, but don't for a second give your image to a "boy" who wants your body first and not your heart. They aren't attracted to you they are attracted to sin. God has called you to stand up for yourself and live your life to honor him in all that you do. God has SO much for your life; don't allow Satan to use your emotions/feelings to destroy you and your heart.
Be bold. Be brave. Be pure. Be different. Be the kind of girl your future husband is praying for.
Stop living and looking for the next guy that walks in, and let God bring the perfect guy he created for you, to you! You are a prized possession that should always be cherished.
