Pray and ask God to take hold of your romantic desires and lead you where He wants you to go.
Next, we encourage you to study what the Bible has to say about relationships, marriage, marital roles and intimacy to understand what godly love looks like.
We have had our share of painful relationship experiences in the past where Christ was not at the center and we were led by selfish desires.
It took time, patience and surrender, but God showed us the hole in our hearts could only be filled by Him alone.
What boundaries did you bring into your relationship to help keep it focused on Christ?
From the beginning, we were both committed to saving all sexual activities for marriage.
After my revelation, I searched high and low for other couples that had made the same decision looking for inspiration on my journey.
Why did you decide that a Christ-centered courtship was your best option?They allowed God to write their love story and aim to share their love as an inspiration to other women on this journey with me. We met while studying at Cornell University, but it was a very rushed first introduction.I sat down with them to talk about how it all began and how far they’ve come together. Over the next two years, we crossed paths, but exchanged very few words.Among them, were newly engaged vloggers Sheretta Noel and Brandon Taylor.Their You Tube series “Worth the Wait” taught me how to better shape my idea of Christian courtship and what it looks like when it’s a success.Also, we learned how to vocalize our emotions rather than physically expressing them.As our spiritual lives grow the intimacy in our relationship heightens.They are rooted in purpose, spiritual growth and a desire to be with whom God has chosen for you.The couple is not “trying each other out” but rather courting their brother/sister in Christ to lead to a godly marriage.“Purge” is a verb, meaning it is an action that David is requesting God to actually do to him.The NIV translates Psalm 51:7 as, “Cleanse me with the hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Now what the heck is this “hyssop” all about Psalm 51:7?
