#1 – A blood stained cross and an empty tomb screams that you ARE worth the pursuit. (See 2 Corinthians 5:21)
#2 – For those who feel like you once were valuable…but because of sexual sin you have somehow disqualified yourself from having something amazing for a future relationship…remember, Jesus wants the rose!!!
#3 – Singleness is NOT a sickness but rather a gift…and according to Ecclesiastes 3:11 the Lord really does make everything beautiful IN HIS TIME.
#4 – Jesus has asked His followers to do lots of things…but compromise is NOT one of them.
#5 – Remember that success in relationships comes through surrender to Christ.
#6 – Guys will not “hook up” with a woman that they admire, respect and value…if he’s “hooking up” with you it’s not because he’s pursuing you but rather because he is objectifying you. RUN!
(Remember that a Godly man will work for purity in the relationship…which means he will lead you AWAY from tempting situations…not towards them!)
#7 – If you are having sex with someone you are not married to then you are not in a position where you can clearly hear from Jesus…the best thing to do is NOT just to stop having sex, you should end the relationship. (I Thessalonians 4:3-8)
#8 – “I’m lonely” is NEVER a good reason for continuing to date a guy you know you should not be with.
#9 – When a man sees that you are not an object to be conquered but rather a daughter of the King who is a gift then he will treat you with respect, kindness and will do his best to honor you both publicly and privately.
#10 – “I’m getting older” is NEVER a good reason to settle for “the next thing that comes along.”
#11 – If there are “issues” in your life before you are married then they will be magnified after you are married, the BEST thing you can do for yourself and your future husband is to confess sin that you are dealing with, deal with past abuse that has held you in prison and forgive people who have hurt you.
