4. Be accountable to someone.
I don’t know how you can go through singleness without being accountable to someone.
Walk with a godly couple who have been there and overcome.
Who won’t sooth your sinning nature and who won’t compromise.
Who will tell you straight up that a certain path you are walking on isn’t right.
They will keep you on your toes, and keep your character in check.
If you are a man, get a godly man to walk with you.
Miss, have another woman to keep you balanced and who is real with you.
Have people to are accountable with. At least one person or couple that you can be real with.
5. Prayer and the word.
I cannot stress more on the importance of prayer.
The Bible says this :
How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to Your precepts].
The word of the Lord is the only speed governor to our sexuality.
Only the Lord can guide you and give you the grace to wait.
Spend time doing devotion.
I do mine in the car. Get audio books and audio devotions.
Instead of a series the whole night, switch to Family TV listen to at least one preacher a day.
Soon, the word will be so sweet that there won’t be any room for other stuff.
Trust me on this.
Aren’t the above ways practical…?
Sure they are…
