True Love Speaks

A couple years ago I did a video entitled, “True Love Waits.” In the video, I spoke about the God’s design and purpose for sex, and why it’s important to wait. Due to social norms, if you decide to save yourself for marriage, you’re made to feel like something’s wrong with you or you’re the only one pursuing that path. That is why I wanted to share my testimony, so others could be encouraged and know they’re not alone.

To be completely honest, I desired for my story to reach people, but I never imagined that I would be speaking to a youth group in California as a result. The youth director at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Ontario, CA saw my TLW video on YouTube, and requested to show it to the church’s teenagers. After the youth group watched the video, I was conferenced in via Skype to speak further on purity and do a Q&A. It was an awesome experience because God was able to use me (I’m always in awe when He does). It was also awesome because the kids were sweethearts. I’ve never done anything like that before, so their sweet spirits made it easy for this first-timer/amateur.

I pray that this is only the beginning. I want to always position myself to be used by God, and boldly speak what I believe. 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NLT) says, “But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, ‘I believed in God, so I spoke.’” This is my confession. **G.I.G.**
