You Are Far Above Rubies by Project Inspired Fan, Paris!

From Nicole: This is an important message from Project Inspired fan, Paris, to remind yourself how incredibly precious you are and why you should wait until marriage to have sex!
I know that there are many girls that are so desperate for a man, they resort to things that severely damage their heart, mind, soul and the beautiful body that God gave them. They are so desperate for a boyfriend, they will do ANYTHING for one, even if they end up emotionally, verbally and physically abused.
Many times they resort to having sex even if they don’t want to, just to keep their man happy. They are in relationship after relationship (or what they think is a relationship), which many times is no more than a ‘hookup.’ Many girls have sex with many men so they feel good inside, to cover up the pain and insecurity of their real feelings. However, the devastating part is this good feeling is fleeting and doesn’t last long. At the end of the day, after they have sex with these boys, they feel worthless and the pain always comes back. They put themselves through this because Satan is telling them that they can’t survive without a boy and that a man is the only one who will ever love them and make them happy.
As daughters of The King, we are his Princesses and he wants the absolute best for us, which means remaining pure and holy and waiting for the right man to have sex with only once we are married and bonded to him. I know that a lot of us feel the need to have sex with lots of men to keep away the pain and feel loved. Jesus wants you to know this: If you ask for forgiveness (and you mean it), he WILL forgive you. But remember — asking for forgiveness and then doing it again (because you know he will forgive you) is taking advantage of Him and his grace and mercy.
“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 8:12)
We don’t need to have sex with lots of men to take away the pain and make us happy and loved. He will ALWAYS love you more than any man ever could. He is the ONLY ONE who can ease your pain. When you feel the way I describe in this post, remember this: Jesus will send you a wonderful man when He is finished preparing you, so be patient.
He will not send you one if you are not prepared. The man that He will send you is the one He prepared for you. You will know when He has sent you a wonderful man. This man will be an absolutely amazing man of God, and will love you so very much! He will be wonderful because God says we are wonderful.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvelous [are] thy works; and my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalm 139:14)
ALL OF THESE MEN WHO HAVE SEX WITH YOU DO NOT LOVE YOU! THEY ONLY WANTED ONE THING. Don’t destroy your heart, mind, soul, self-esteem and the beautiful body that God gave you by having sex with lots of men because you are worth so much more than this! You are precious, sacred and drop dead gorgeous in God’s eyes. You are far above rubies! Just know, while you are reading this, your one true love, the perfect man is out there right now that God has held for you- so don’t give your body around to strangers, who ultimately won’t appreciate it! I promise it will be one of the best decisions to hold out for.

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10

Please stand out from the other girls and don’t have sex with just anyone until you’re married (like they expect you to!!). I’m praying for all of you. God Bless! 🙂 -Nicole
