Your Body is Gift of God

Dear Daughter,

God has given you a beautiful gift, a wonderful woman’s body. A body full of mystery and a lifetime of discovery.  Sometimes you feel your body betrays you- with pimples and cramps- but never forget that your body is a precious gift from God.  As precious as your body is always remember that your heart and mind are far greater.

1 Corinthians 6:19 NASB
[19] Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

I urge you always to cover your body with modesty not because you are ashamed of it or it is not beautiful. You are truly beautiful my child, with a beauty from within that cannot be matched.  I urge you to dress discreetly because you love your body and it is so very special.  I urge you to encourage boys to chase after your mind and your heart because you have a heart for God.  I pray God helps me to teach you that your self worth comes from your heart and mind and not from lust.  I pray you believe your body is worth covering; because your a strong independent woman who knows she is worth more than body parts.

1st Timothy 2:9-10 NASB
[9] Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, [10] but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.

As you grow and learn about your hormones and first love I want to share some of God’s wisdom, that’s rejected by the world.  Sex is a wonderful gift from God.  The human body is designed to enjoy sexual intimacy with someone from the opposite sex.  God designed us to have sex with only one person.  When you have sex you are giving a piece of yourself away.   During sex you are bring another into your body and become one with them.  If you chase you every whim, having sex with every guy you believe you are in love with, then sex doesn’t stay special.  I urge you to wait to share you body because you are worth waiting for.  I encourage you to tell guys no, until you’re married because you are special enough to wait for, and it will be worth the wait.

I understand hormones are strong and even a strong will can falter.  It is possible you will believe you are in love and can’t wait.  I will still love you, there is no shame.  My sweet daughter, no matter what you are loved and will be forgiven but I pray you treat your body as the special gift it is.

Please know that if an unexpected child is created during your decision to have sex, there are options.  You can either keep it and I will help you the best I can or give it up for adoption.  But my sweet girl know that for the 10months that child is growing in you, your body is not your own but an incubator. This is not a punishment but a consequence of your actions.

And dear child, I won’t encourage premiscuios sex. I don’t believe sex outside of marriage is God’s will.  If you engage in premarital sex and contract a STD, I will hold your hand during treatment and cry with you as you deal with the consequences.  You will never be alone or unloved.

1 Corinthians 6:17-20 NASB
[17] But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. [18] Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. [19] Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? [20] For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Never forget that you are a gift from God. Your body is only part of you, not who you are, it is your mind and heart that are most important.  All together you are a remarkable girl who deserves respect and passion and love.

Lastly, any sexual activity you have is a your choice, no one should ever force or pressure you into anything.  There are those that will force themselves on you but that is never your fault.  Know that you can come to me if your ever pressured or forced to do anything I will support you.  Listen carefully and know, if you feel forced it is not your fault: it doesn’t matter what you wore or where you were or what you might have said before; the moment you say no it is rape.

Deuteronomy 22:25-26 NASB
[25] “But if in the field the man finds the girl, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man who lies with her shall die. [26] But you shall do nothing to the girl; there is no sin in the girl.

My daughter, it is a sinful and painful world but I want you to find the joy.  What the Bible say is good, the world says is bad.  It is good to respect your body and treat it as the most precious gift you’ve seen.  It is good to dress modestly because you know you have more to be proud of than just your body!  People will tell you otherwise but I hope I can give you enough self worth to know what your truly worth.

I love you my daughter no matter what and you are God’s child no matter what.

Sincerly with,

Humility, Grace & Mercy
