Its official! The Wilsons are married!
This celebrity couple is probably most notably known for their decision to wait until marriage to have sex. As sexually driven as our society is, its practically IMPOSSIBLE to believe that this is even possible. Even Wendy Williams says that she doesn't believe they haven't had sex. Well, Wendy and other naysayers, I DO! I do because I'm living that life RIGHT NOW! My boyfriend and I are decidedly celibate until marriage. So I KNOW it's possible!
That said, the question is: As a Christian, how is that going for you? Do you go into relationships with good intentions to stay "pure" only to have a series of "slip ups"? Maybe sexual celibacy is good .....until that old familiar guy or gal calls. Maybe your urges overtake you and you engage in risque activity for momentary pleasure.
Whatever your story .... this blog is not about quilting or shaming you into compliance.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. - Romans 8:1
I'm bringing all this up not to condemn you but invite you to join our conversation.
If you were struggling with overeating, I'd invite you to join me at the gym. If you were struggling with your hair, I'd advise you about some of the great hair stylists I know. But since you're struggling with sex, I invite you to a conversation with and about others who had the same struggle.
