TIME TO LET GO

Image
The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world

Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr

To engage in sex or intimacy without the benefit of marriage is sacrilegious. It is a sin against self, a sin against your GOD.

What becomes confusing is the conflict with your heart, your beliefs, and even your body. If you think back to the first time you got those butterflies you were probably a child, maybe a teenager. It was overwhelming. You couldn’t articulate your feelings. For me personally, I remember being so into my first boyfriend that I didn’t know how to let go of it later in life. I did have an incident where I had this strange banter with a friend/business associate. To be perfectly honest, I was sure he hated m…
