Once Upon a Time

Posted 12-12-2008 at 06:53 PM by ArmyPoohFan317


Once upon a time, a girl was set up to meet a guy. The two met and hit it off right away. The romance was fast, and she was swept off her feet. 6 months later, she was engaged to her knight in bullet proof, camo armor.

But, times were not always easy for our young couple. They faced many hurdles. PTSD, deployments, seminary life, crazy advice from friends, and the usual entanglements of a 21st century romance.

But, with constant prayer and lots of communication, the relationship weathered the storms. The 2 knew that their relationship would only work if it was centered around Christ.

Neither of them entered the relationship as innocents, mistakes had been made in previous relationships, things had happened that scarred both people. But even those were overcome.

But what does our young heroine do when confronted with a new situation, with a question that most people would scoff at?

Sex in our culture is nothing all that special anymore. It is used to buy and sell everything! It is all over the television, ads, radio, movies, songs, etc. So in this day and age, when a 20 something woman is trying to finally do the right thing and WAIT, people look at her like she is prude.

In church they say "If he loves you, he will wait." Not necessarily true. What do you do, when marriage is the only way for one person, and the other person doesn't see it as necessary. "We are going to get married anyway. And it isn't like either of us are virgins."

Why do our past mistakes always follow us? Yeah, the heroine screwed up, but that doesn't mean she has to screw up again and again. She can chose to change. The past choices can't be un-chosen, but they can be lessons.

So, in the end, the young woman that still loved her GI JOE had to realize that this area was one of no compromise. God comes first, His law that is upon her heart comes first, and if GI JOE isn't willing to wait and hold himself in check, than the grand romance is over.

The moral of this story is that we have to always follow Christ, that HE works on our hearts and that HE will be obeyed. God is not a kill joy. The next chapter in her life may be better, most likely will be. The end of one chapter is generally the beginning of the next, till the story ends, and so far her story is continuing.

The next chapter is to come in time.
