Home True Love Waits A Letter to Teen Girls

A Letter to Teen Girls

Hey girls.... I just found an important thing to share with you in my old notes.

It's about TLW.  TLW means True Love Waits, and it means that God's plan and desire is that all of us would wait until marriage to have sex for the first time.

So this is a part of the commentary of 1 Corinthians 6:13, which says, "You say, 'food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food.' This is true though someday God will do away with both of them. But our bodies were not made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies."

That was the scripture itself.  Here is the commentary from my Life Application bible:

"Sexual immorality is a temptation that is always before us.  In movies and on television, sex outside marriage is treated as a normal, even desirable, part of life, while marriage is often shown as confining and joyless.  We can even be looked down on by others if we are suspected of being pure.  But God does not forbid sexual sin just to be difficult.  He knows its power to destroy us physically and spiritually.  No one shold underestimate the power of sexual immorality.  It has devastated countless lives and destroyed families, churches, communities, and even nation.  god wants to protect us from damaging ourselves and others, and so He offers to fill us -- our loneliness, our desires -- with Himself."

Please think about this - this is my EARNEST PRAYER AND DESIRE for any girl that might be reading this. That you would always hold on to staying pure until marriage... Save yourself for your one and only husband, and for most wonderful, fateful day when you marry. Honor God and protect yourself, and you won't ever have to deal with the consequences of the sin of having sex outside of marriage.

Love you and praying for you all...
