Purity Speaks Boldly Preparing Your Tongue for Dates

10-4It pays to do things the hard way, which is the case more often than not when you seek the Lord's will. My relationship with Bob Gresh is more unique and special than it ever has been. There are not any "I love yous," there are no physical displays how than when those things were present. It's not easy. There are days I don't share with him and yet I'm so thankful that the Lord has given us the wisdom to patiently wait for His timing.

11-13I argued with Bob tonight. No, we didn't fight, but we enthusiastically debated our views. I never even knew I had it in me. Debate is somehow stimulating. In fact, if we hadn't been disagreeing, I'd have been laughing.

I laid down my journal, having read the slow progression of several months of a relationship I was treasuring. Our hearts, which for a few weeks were so easily read and unguarded in our passion, had relinquished to an unspoken determination by our heads to progress slowlypainfully slowly.

However, there was a sense of an upcoming reward to the pain of waiting. I wasn't afraid in this relationship because I was not entirely vulnerable. I felt no risk of becoming overly physical because that was in no way a part of our relationship. And best of all, there were still some incredible moments ahead of us. I did not realize it, but I was about to experience one of them.

I glanced at the clock and realized it was time to meet Bob at my dorm lobby. He met me, escorted me to his car, and got in. As we drove away, the conversation picked up where we'd left off the last time we'd been together. We had a pace of our conversation. It was aggressive and determined. We had no awkward pauses as we wondered what to say next. We were on a mission to chisel into each other's minds and were using words as our primary tool.

Suddenly, he stopped the car. I noticed the soft January snowflakes for the first time and felt the hush of a fresh snowfall embrace our car. It was as if time had suddenly stopped.

He reached over and tenderly kissed the tip of my nose, barely brushing my lips as he pulled away.

"This is a far as I want any physical contact to go between us," he whispered and then drove on. We were silent for the first time in months. I pondered the unspoken words he had not used to charge me with a great task. I heard him. He was asking me to keep talking. I did.

The tongue is a powerful tool. James compares it to the rudder of a great ship. With just this little instrument, you can set your course for a direction toward something great or toward the perils of an iceberg.

Though somewhat of an introvert, I found that keeping my lips loose kept my relationship headed toward greatness. I've seen a trend as I counsel young women in their relationships. Author Robert Wolgemuth spoke of it in his book, She Calls Me Daddy. He said that young women who have learned the art of conversation are less likely to e caught in compromising physical situations. Why? "First, assuming that boys will nearly always be the aggressors, {you'll} know how to openly express {your} commitments to purity andfears of the consequences of premarital intimate contact. Second, young lovebirds usually choose between talk and the back seat. They don't do both simultaneously." If you truly desire to live a lifestyle of purity, you'll learn the secret of speaking boldly.
