Pinky Promise + Honouring God With Your Body

by - Friday, January 16, 2015

Hello Beauties. Today as the Lord leads, I want to discuss the importance of honouring God with ourselves wholeheartedly. I believe a big topic is the whole boyfriend-girlfriend paradigm that has evolved into a breeding ground for sin. This type of relationship is actually not biblical. I am referring to the ways of the world and how I used to be. Having a boyfriend or girlfriend is temporary, the Bible teaches us to either get married or stay alone [1 Corinthians 7:2]. Thus, if I meet a man, he needs to be talking about marriage and asking questions leading towards that, not inviting me to his house or manipulating me to have sex with him.

I was once the type of girl that just wanted the “perfect” relationship. I just wanted a man that I could rely on and felt like I could do this without consulting God. It was only when I was disappointed by many that is when I truly learnt - EVERYONE will disappoint at one point, I will even let myself down. I can rely ONLY on God. Often, I would expect God to verbally tell me NO, but He was showing me all the signs, I just chose to go ahead foolishly. But praise God because I finally saw the light. I was the type that was excited about the idea of marriage, but did not know the true meaning and worth. At the time I did not take the time to get to know myself, I was more concerned with trying to ‘fit in’ to the world’s standards and the worldly man’s idea of beauty i.e. tight clothes revealing what God told me to preserve for my husband.

God did not create the body for sexual immorality, but rather the body is a temple of the Lord that should remain pure. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord and the Lord for the body [1 Corinthians 6:13].

I just felt like every time I tried to be single and dedicate my life to the Lord, the devil would bring one of his sons that would try to take me off track. Yes the weapon was formed against me but it did not prosper, because I now know the truth. I came across the Pinky Promise Movement in 2013 and at first I felt like I just could not do it. I heard the Lord pulling and tugging me away from particular relationships, but I just felt too weak to leave at the time. You know when you are just deluded and fool yourself into thinking that God may suddenly turn your impure relationship to marriage? Yea, that was once me.

A promise to honor God with your body and your life. To refuse to give your body to anyone that hasn't paid the price for you called marriage. It's a promise to stay pure before God in EVERY single way. It's a promise that says, I won't test the boundaries in my relationship to see how far I can push it sexually--but instead--I want God to have my heart.

It's a promise to God that you will honor your marriage covenant. It's saying that I promise not to step outside of my marriage, cheat on my spouse and that I'll work through every issue.
Thanks for joining Pinky Promise. Find a group or start a group in your area, and lets encourage each other and build a bond between sisters in Christ.

I first came across Heather Lindsey early last year. I was glad to see that there was a Pinky Promise community in London, as it is was founded in the US (see website for more info). Going forward I am now single and celibate. I have come to the conclusion that I would rather be single for the rest of my life to have another meaningless relationship. It is really not worth it. Sometimes you have to cut all ties in order to hear God's voice clearer and grow. Even if it means you have NO FRIENDS for a season. Better that than to miss out on Jesus. I encourage you today to take control over your body as a woman and live like the Queen that He called you to be. He is so worth it. When you get closer to Him you begin to hate the sin you once found comfort in. What a fool I was! But praise God because I am saved.

The Pinky Promise Movement has been a constant reminder that I am not alone and that there are people out there who understand. But there is nothing like getting quiet before the Lord and having faith, it is important to have a personal relationship with Him. It just gets to a point where you no longer care about what people think. It is God I have to answer to and besides everyone is facing their own battle. But if I am going to be a Christian, I must do it with my whole heart. That means dying to self and changing my mentality. It gets lonely sometimes, you feel like you are the only one that understands the love of Jesus. You may need that season to just be alone and spend time on your face with the Lord. Singing songs of worship and getting deep into His word. Once you know the truth nothing else matters. Its ok if people think you are crazy or a loner, let them think what they like. My mission is to serve God and that is at the top of my list.

For me, if I need to refocus I just need to spend time alone in God’s word. That is how I regain my strength. So ladies, if you think your man will change you are mistaken. A man does not like being told what to do but rather created to be a leader. I have so been there with previous relationships, “Are you going to Church?”, “Lets pray together?”, “At what age do you see yourself married?”. Nah, I cannot be the leader, but rather I need to be led. God is the head of man and man the head of woman. Don’t let this new age way of behaving deceive you [1 Corinthians 11:3].

I just opened an Instagram account for East London - @PinkyPromiseEastLondon as the Lord leads. Lets see what will come out of this!!
