Hey everybody!  It is so encouraging seeing this community on LJ.  When I talk to my friends about giving God full control of your love life, most of them (even my Christian friends) have an argument against it.  I have been hurt many times in the past by boys, and it's definitely worth it to make God the center of every relationship.  
   Thanks so much for the encouragement and support that you didn't even realize you were giving me!!  I'm definitely going to post entries on my page about enjoying my single life.  There IS hope for love <3

Not in Love [Dec. 27th, 2009|10:08 pm]
I Kissed Dating Goodbye

It's a crossroads
One is in love and one is not
Who will let it go
You're leaving now for all you never saw

It's the ugliest day
When you can't be what you need
So you let go, get off the phone
And leave me be

With silence and songs
Playing in the background of my room
When I am thinking completely
About all I do to you

And I'm lost in confusion
As to how easily you let it go
A friendship that's been forever
Just because I'm not in love and you know

And I know what I lost
When you said you give up and goodbye
The end of an era
That meant so much in my life

A walk on the beach [Dec. 24th, 2009|11:34 pm]
I Kissed Dating Goodbye

As I got on the the plane to go to California, I just knew that this was
going to be worth taking a vacation for.

I looked out the window at the clouds and realized what a big world that
we lived in.

The attendant came on the intercom saying that we were almost to our
destination and to buckle up.

I smiled, being afraid of heights I stayed buckled the whole flight.

As we touched down, my stomach lept up.

I grabbed my bags and went inside the airport.

I did not have any other luggage, preferring to pack lightly.

I had what I needed, a couple of pairs of clothes and a bikini.

I went to the rental cars and saw a Mustang. I nearly jumped for joy.
Mustangs were my dream car. I went to the cashier, glad that I had money
saved up for this vacation and asked for the Mustang.

I filled out the paperwork and paid for it and she handed me the keys.
She told me that I made a good choice.

I smiled as I got in the car and started it.

The rumble of the engine was music to my ears.

I pulled out of the airport and went to a hotel nearby and signed in,
getting a room with a king sized bed.

I slept for the night and when I woke up I asked the front desk how to
get to the local beach.

They told me how and I got in the Mustang and made my way there after
changing into a bikini.

As soon as I got to the beach, the aroma of salt and the ocean permeated
the air.

I made my way to the water barefoot. The feel of the sand running through
my toes soothed my mood.

I put my feet into the water feeling that it was cool, I got out and went
to sit down and watch the ocean.

Wave after wave came, disappearing into white foam as it came to the
shore and went back out.

A shadow appeared over me and I turned, seeing the woman from the car
rental place in a bikini over me.

Her breasts filled her top. She had to be at least a C cup.

I said hi. She looked down at me and asked me if she could join me.

I told her of course, and she sat down next to me.

I asked her, "Do you mind if I ask you a personal question?"

She said go ahead.

"Do you like women," I asked, surprising myself with my bluntness.

Yes came the response.

"My name is Ava, by the way," she told me.

I leaned into her kissing her lips. Her lips were so soft and full, I
could swear that I could kiss her all day but I wanted more.

I opened my mouth and so did she and our tongues met, sending an electric
shock through my body.

I reached up and massaged her tits with my hands. I looked around and saw
that we were alone on the beach for the moment.

I reached behind her and untied her top around her neck, unleashing her
top from her breasts revealing firm tits with hard nipples.

I resumed massaging them and leaned forward and nibbled on her earlobe.

"Oh God, please," she moaned.

I pulled her bottoms off of her, kneeling in front of her.

She automatically spread her legs.

She was shaved and I saw that she was soaking wet.

I nibbled her thigh, making her squeal in delight.

I then started to lick around her pussy lips, tasting her.

Her hips moved up, but I pushed them back down.

I held her hips as I continued licking her lips, purposely avoiding her
clit.

"Please lick me, suck me, what but I need you on my clit," she begged me.

I quickly licked her clit, making her moan.

I loved feeling her hard clit under my tongue and what I could do to her
by licking it.

I brought it into my mouth and started to suck it as I moved my tongue
over it.

She moaned and said, "I'm so close."

I nibbled on her clit softly and that was enough to send her over the
edge.

She screamed my name and came so hard.

I licked her juices up like a child licking ice cream that was melting.

I could not get it all, but I wanted more.

She finally stopped and I realized that a few people were on their way
down to the beach. I told her and she quickly put on her bottoms and I
helped her tie her top in place.

She looked at me and said, "I wish that I could return the favor."

I gave her my cell phone number and told her that I would be here for the
weekend.

She smiled and kissed me softly and said, "I will definitely call."

Then she got up and left.

lj is my outlet for unspeakable truth [Jul. 17th, 2008|02:01 am]
I Kissed Dating Goodbye
dazed_starlight
So I go to a very good, Bible-believing, expository preaching church whose views on dating (along with everything theology related) are very similar to those of Josh Harris, Rick Holland, etc...

I recently started dating a boy from my church, to discover that dating is a very grey, murky area. I have been learning my lessons as I trudge through the murk, and I have my doubts, my regrets, my...uncertainties.

I started this livejournal as a means to express completely honestly what's on my mind and have people read and give me advice/feedback while remaining completely anonymous.

Please add me if you're interested, read my entries (I only have about one right now, but will be adding more as emotions pile up), and comment.

Thanks

Christian podcast [Jun. 10th, 2008|11:17 am]
I Kissed Dating Goodbye

 Hi there! I've been a member of this community for a while and I just wanted to share something with you all that I thought might interest you.

I am a part of a ministry called GodlyGals (you can also find us at godly_gals) that focuses on equipping believers, providing a place for fellowship, and encouraging one another in our walks with Christ. It has been a phenomenal five years and God had blessed the ministry so much. Our growth lately has been such an encouragement and I look forward to the future as we move forward to where the Lord would have us go.

We have recently ventured into podcasting and it's been so great. We get to communicate with members of our community live, as well as people who just happen to drop in. We've met so many great people that way. It's really been amazing. In our podcast we talk about a variety of topics regarding the Christian faith. I really just wanted to let this community know about it so that you could stop by for one of our live shows or listen to it later (at www.godlygals.com/blog) if you can't make it to the live show. The wider our audience, the better the show.

Feel free to share this with your friends!
Our next podcast will be:

Date: Wed, June 11, 2008
Time: 09:00 PM EDT

  I'm here because I agree with Josh's view on dating. Back in my teens, I quickly realized that dating resulted in people constantly and thoughtlessly going through each other; this leads to temptation and harms the value of individuals. It is far better if people court with clear intentions.

I think I am just about done with IKDGB. It was revolutionary when I was a teenager. It was cute when I was in college and I'm deep into my twenties now I find it fundamentally flawed. Thanks for letting me be a little cynical poster these past few years. But I think its time for me to leave the community. God Bless ya'll.

This is a scholarship essay I wrote last year about a book that changed my life...

In a book titled “I Kissed Dating Goodbye”, Joshua Harris challenges young Christians to re-examine their views on relationships.  Judging from the title, many people get the wrong idea of this book.  No, he does not believe that dating is sinful.  He compares dating to fast food restaurants.  It’s not wrong to eat there, but why would you want to when something far better is available?

 

I grew up believing (as most people do) that dating is an essential part of being a teenager when in reality, dating in the traditional sense is one of the greatest obstacles that young women and men growing in Christ face.  Joshua Harris’ book taught me that there is one simple solution: smart love.  Smart love begins with the desire for God’s best, and by default, requires knowledge of and willingness to obey God’s rules.  Smart love is a sincere God-focused love that is concerned for others.  Since I was 16 years old, I’d been the “victim of dumb love”.  It distracted me from my primary responsibilities and caused discontentment with God’s amazing gift of singleness.

 

Joshua Harris uses an analogy of a swerving cart (one that insists on going its own direction rather than being steered) to describe dating and after reading this book, I completely agree.  I’ve concluded that for dating is a “swerver” for me and causes me to go in a direction different from the one God has mapped out for me.

 

            This book has affected me so deeply that I’ve given up the ridiculous notion of defective dating.  I’ve made it a point to include patience, purity, and grace in all of my relationships.  As my youth minister once told me, “You don’t need to shop for what you can’t afford.”  When the possibility of romance does enter my life, what a blessing it would be to have developed a life of purity!  This book has taught me that patience is tough and purity is a struggle, but God’s grace is always available.

 

One of my favorite quotes from “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” is: “The Bible tells us the path of sin, particularly in regard to the wrong use of our sexuality, is like a highway to the grave.  We shouldn’t get on it then try to stop before we arrive at the destination-God tells us to stay off that highway completely.”  I’ve definitely started applying this to my life by taking advantage of my season of singleness.  Finding the right person is a matter of working to become the right person, as well as trusting God to cover the “who” and “when” issues.  God calls us to remain pure, take proper advantage of singleness, and build wholesome relationships that cause you to look at younger women and men as sisters and brothers in Christ.

 

To say Joshua Harris’ “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” changed my life would be an understatement.  This book started a revolution in my heart!
