Since becoming a teenager, romance has completely and fully enthralled me. It has been a fascinating, mysterious dream that always seems to lurk ahead of me…an indistinct idea that thrills me. But I keep getting older. And my thoughts change. They become more pronounced…more urgent and clear…more controlling. They become…well…desires. Desires to have a man notice me, desires to love and be loved, desires to get a closer feel for what I’ve always admired. I want to experience true love…want to know what its like to be in a man’s arms…

But, my stronger desire as a Christian teenager is to be pure—saved completely and fully for my husband. I want to know as I enter my marriage that I have saved myself just for him. “Create in me a clean heart, O God…” (Psalms 51:10) I want my thoughts to be pure; I want to be clean in my heart and in my life.

To all you teenage girls out there who may be reading this, my prayer is that you would come to have the desire to stay pure…

What a precious gift you could give to God and your husband—purity.

Get the word around!
