For His Glory

I never would have thought in a million years that a ring would mean so much to me…or that I would even be wearing this ring. It’s not so much about the ring, but the reminder behind it – that no matter what I’ve done or what’s been done to me, because of the blood Jesus that shed, I was given a 2nd chance. I was made clean and new, and my past is erased. This ring is a reminder of the redemption and restoration I was offered way before I even knew how much I desperately needed it.

In a hook-up, break-up, one night stand kind of culture, purity seems impossible and stupid and tbh I had that perspective for most of my teenage years. I believed so many lies culture fed me that I had to give myself away in order to find love/happiness and trying to find my worth in how many guys wanted me led me down a path of feeling worthless, guilty, used, and like all I had to offer someone was my body.

But watching God remold and reshape my view of sex and love has been the most amazing thing ever. I don’t see it as something shameful and casual, but something beautiful and sacred. When in the covenant of marriage, it brings God glory and honor.

But I’m not just doing this for my future husband or even for myself but because this is God’s will, to honor Him with EVERY aspect of my life. The one thing I absolutely struggled with the most in my life, God is using for His glory. And now I get to travel the country watching God use my scars and mistakes to bring hope and redemption to this generation. That’s what you call grace, my friends. No matter what you’ve done or what’s been done to you, it’s NEVER too late to start over. You’re NEVER too far gone from God’s unfailing grace and love. In a culture filled with lies, hold on to the truth.

“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your body in a way that is holy and honorable.” -1 Thessalonians 4:3
