#IAmWaiting – Lindsey

Lindsey BurkeHey SRT,

In the past, I emailed you guys about how my boyfriend and I were staying pure and everything. Well, we broke up about a month ago and everything went wrong. We ended up having sex because he told me we were going to get married and all these amazing things, shortly after he started drifting apart from me and I found out he was cheating on me and seeing how many girls he could sleep with before the year ended. I was number 14. I feel like my whole world fell apart at that moment.

After we had sex, taking off my purity ring was the hardest thing in the world for me. When I took it off I felt as if I had let everyone including God and myself down. After we broke up I fell into severe depression and turned to drugs and even thought about suicide because I could not believe what was happening. One minute everything is amazing, and the next he tells me we just aren’t at the same experience level in life.

I am now in college and starting my life over again. The thing that kept me going was knowing that even if my family judges me and resents me for what I have done, God doesn’t. I have just recently put my ring back on (I got it at your show in Texas last year) and I am no longer doing drugs and am trying to keep my head up and stay positive. You guys helped me to understand how important it is to stay pure. No matter how strong you are, if that person doesn’t have the same values you do, and you love them with everything you have, you will do anything to make them stay. Thank you guys so much for what you do, hope you come back to Texas soon.

    Very proud of your decision to do the right thing. It takes courage to start again. But praise God that we serve a God that gives 2nd chances. God bless you. And when discouraged look up to the one that holds you up.
