"Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. " {Matthew 7:6}.

 You say you love him and want to keep him by all means... I got this amazing story from a friend on facebook. This story is an eye opener to those who think they can keep a person by any means even at the detriment of their relationship with God.

 This is a true story... "My name is Grace and this is my testimony to warn others. At first I thought I was dreaming. I cried, i begged God to help me wake up but the more I prayed, the more reality smiled at me. My ex boyfriend started abusing me physically and emotionally. All i wanted was to hear him saying "Baby I Am Sorry". Henry was my first Love, the man I used to see in my sleep always. At times I would sit imagining how lovely our home would be with our two kids running around. I met him at a Crusade where i was to minister in songs with my singing group, and that was my First year second semester in university. After ministering i went to the back of the hall where the guest rooms was so that i could refresh. As I sat on the chair, I heard a knock on my door, I wasn't expecting anyone i thought aloud and walked straight to the door As I i opened the door, I was dumb founded because in front of me stood a Very Handsome young guy. I didn't realize i had stood for a few seconds admiring a total stranger. "Hello" he said trying to bring my attention. Oh! Am sorry I quickly said, feeling embarrassed. "Can I help you" I quickly put in, trying to get control of my self. And he worsen the situation with his reply. " I only came to say you where amazing back on the stage and I loved your performance" then he walked away. After the Program, Henry came again and we exchanged mobile numbers. You know what they say about constant and effective communication between persons. He gradually found his way into my Heart, he was far yet so close, he told me the kind of things i wanted to hear, he showed me so much love, care and concern. I couldn't control my feelings for him again. I loved Henry without reservations, but i had this fear that crippled me at interval. One day when Henry came to visit me in my Hotel, I held his hands and asked him "Do you Love Me" he said with his entire body and soul. So I decided to share my fear with him even though I was not sure he will be willing to bear it with me. Henry I am a virgin! He looked at me with love in his eyes and asked "why are you telling me baby?" Because its My Pride and I want to keep it till after my wedding vows. Henry held me close to his chest and kissed my forehead. Grace, I love your vision, your ministry, i love your God and i love you too. I promise to protect your Pride with my Love because its mine too. I held him tighter and kept saying Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! I love u too.

That evening I kept singing praises to God, appreciating him for bring Henry my way. He was my dream man. As the years goes by my relationship with Henry became sweeter and I also noticed that i was getting cold towards my ministry and it was affecting my relationship with God and my studies too. Henry was all i think, read, eat and even preached. Because i didn't want to listen to my pastor and some church members talk to me about him, I started avoiding them and the church activities too. I was in love and I didn't want anyone telling me i was loving the wrong man but one morning the sound of my music changed. I was on my bed and my phone rang. It was an unknown contact and I picked. Hello! Look, I have heard so much about you and i don't want you to be a victim. Henry is not what or whom you think he is. I got up and screamed, Rubbish!! Lies!!! I love him and nobody can spoil that. Alex my room mate asked me what the caller said, i told her and she sat down saying nothing but she had this sorry look on her face. Alex what is it, is there something you are not telling me? Alex! I shouted. Look Grace, I know am not supposed to say anything because I know you love Henry dearly, but am afraid that caller is correct. What do you mean Alex? Please tell me. For the first time a great fear gripped me, i can't tell what i was feeling, but i knew it was not a good feeling. Alex started tearing my heart into pieces. She told me how Henry had tried to Rape her twice and how she had caught him having sex with Rita my next door neighbour. God! How could he. I loved him, he promised to be faithful. I could feel my heart struggling to break out of its cave. I cried, i wailed and wept, i couldn't believe it was happening to me. My world was crumbling, my cloud was getting dark. I tried calling Henry, I wanted him to tell me it was all a lie but my Henry wasn't taking my calls. It became heavier on me. I decided to go over to his house, but that was my greatest mistake. At his gate my feet began to shake with so much rigor, my heart panted faster. I began losing strength. I gather courage and opened the door. I met Henry sitting on the dining chair. He hugged me but one thing shocked me, he didn't deny all the accusations levied against him but rather blamed me. He said my refusal to make love with him was making him loose it and that he couldn't control it anymore. Tears dropping down his chin Henry asked me to prove my love to him by making love to him. I loved him and I didn't want to loose him. I forgot my God, my vows, my covenant, my belief. All i wanted at that moment was to keep My Henry. So i asked him " do you promise to stay with me all your life"? Sexually aroused and controlled, he quickly replied Yes! Yes!! Yes baby!! Without further thought i gave out my Pride without fear or regard. Little did i know that it was going to be my Pain, I was giving out my Pride for a Relationship that i will never keep.

After the shameful act, I began bleeding profusely, Henry threw my clothes and my under wears at me, he asked me to dress up and go back to my hostel, I begged him to allow me regain myself for I was in pain but he screamed at me. Leave!!! Then it became clear that i had given what I couldnt get back. God have mercy i cried. Henry dressed up and left me but warned me that he wouldn't want to see me on his return. I managed to dress up to leave the room. I had lost my Glory, there was no covering on me any more. It wasn't just spiritual but it reflected physically too. I was shamed of my self, i was ugly and dirty. As i stood crying because I was in pain both physically and emotionally. A man walked to me and said "Hope you are satisfied now"? It made me cry more and harder. Days, weeks and months past and Henry didn't contact me and refused to pick up my calls or see me. Then i realized i had lost all except one (God) I played repeatedly the song from the Preachers Kids(Daddy Can I Please Come Back Home) it took me 6 months to find my place back at Christ's feet. I Ran to his Mercy Seat and He took me back not minding my mistakes. I know there are Henry's out there and that's why am sharing my story.

 Any Relationship that tears and separate you from God or kill your desire to work for him is a trap from the devil. It will only hurt you, kill you, disgrace and take away Gods glory from you. I am glad God accepted me but I am living with the consequences of losing my virginity. God forgives but some scars remain there. God bless you and hope you have been inspired to put God first and never compromise your purity."- Tinashe Samuel .

 Friend, no matter how desperate you need a relationship never compromise your stand or else You will build a wrong relationship . The person you are trying to keep today after you have offered him/her what they want from you, they will kick you out like a dog. I love what William Gurnall, Author Christian in Complete Armour said "God would not rub so hard if it were not to fetch out the dirt that is ingrained in our natures. God loves purity so well He had rather see a hole than a spot in His child’s garments.”

You are God's Prince/Princess so don't allow anyone treat you like a dog. At the right time God will lead you to the person He has destined for you and both of you will build a healthy relationship in the fear of God, for His Glory because He is at the Centre of your Relationship. Remember your body is not yours it is God's so don't use His body to fulfill your sexual gratification. 1Cor 6:20.

A man who fears God will not lead you or pressure you to sin against God in your relationship. Even if he is tempted to, he will repent and not continue in such acts.

A person who fears God will love you passionately because there is an outburst of love in him, for God has poured his love in his heart by the Holy Spirit {Romans 5:5}.

I know you want to be loved, everyone wants to including me, but are we going to do this at the detriment of our lives and envious destiny. God's ways are best for us, let's us follow his ways. His ways are not for our destruction but for our construction to becoming like Jesus Christ and living a glorious life on earth.

The number one way to experience love is you coming into Christ, if you know that God loves you and have experience His love. It will be very easy to detect the person whose saying "I  love you" is not original or from the heart.

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ who loves you more than anyone on earth and will lead you to a man who will value you by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
