Christian dating physical touch
I’d gone too far physically, and I’d begun struggling with an eating disorder. My mistakes in that relationship are exactly what God has chosen to use in my life! He allows me to write books and speak around the country about eating disorder recovery and how to have healthy, God-honoring relationships. Wait for someone who loves God enough that he’ll put God’s way above his own desires. Because let me tell you: Everything is going to sound good in that moment!
Give yourself space to slowly build up to your boundaries as your relationship grows. This is the one thing I would go back and change if I could.
So today I want to share them with you in the hope that they can help you as well. I thought that was good enough, but when my willpower started slipping and I gradually decided I wanted to go farther, he was okay with that—as long as I was okay with that (which, eventually, I was). He wanted us to live rightly before God just as much (if not more) than I wanted to.
We could encourage each other and stand strong together. When you’re in the moment—when you’re watching a movie in a dark room and everyone else has gone to bed—is the time to talk about your boundaries.
The Bible advises, “Do not awaken love until it so desires” (Song of Solomon 8:4).
Wait as long as possible before awakening those physical passions. The Bible says to flee temptation—to literally run from it!
