Take time to know Him/Her


I was watching Me Before You, it is a romantic movie about a young woman and a young who fall in love over a period of time and sadly the man decides to take his life because he cannot remain living as a paraplegic. Sad for that man but however that is not my focus about this.

The way I spend so much time with God these days I hear him speak to me in everything that there is out there, I hope that he blesses you with this gift, I don't know what to call it. Surely you have to spend time in his presence to hear his voice among the loudness.

As Christians we know that we are not to be engage in sex or anything regarding that subject until marriage. Besides it being a command from God it really does protect us from a lot of things that you do not have to believe to see that. 
So as I was watching this movie I noticed how these two people were spending time together getting to know each other, without any physical contact. It showed me how much attention to detail was paid to one another. Most of us have not gotten the chance to get to know this because our focus was/is on sexual contact , which in a way limits other ways of communication that could be explored between two people. If the majority of youth(that I know of) could try this, I honestly believe they would stop crying about being broke hearted after every relationship.

this was my favourite scene, it shows he was listening to her.
Even her own bf did not know.
I want to use this man's tragic situation to bring glory to this situation. I wish most of us could be paralyzed to our physical desires as we pursue our future spouses, wouldn't that be honouring God? I have been praying for that, it has been playing in my head that we should paralyze our flesh's desire and get to spend time with the person, listening and interacting, watching their reactions!
The time alone also produced those emotions, it produced loving actions towards each other. The man and the woman did not have love at first site, love came along the way with friendship.
1 Timothy 5:1-2 NIV:Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 

These are just my 2 cents worth of opinions. Let me know what you think! and where did God's voice suddenly appear to you? Let us know
