Wait for Me-Rebecca St. James

This is a song which I would like to dedicate to all young women out there.

It is SO important to remain firm in your beliefs about being chaste. When you lose your purity, you lose many things. You lose a man's respect because you have become a sex object (have you heard how men have talked about girls who have had sex - they laugh about you and put you down and call you names). You lose the high standards you used to have for yourself and your behaviors. You hurt your relationship with God. Your parents and your family suffer. You lose friencships because people lose respect for you - you are not the person you used to be. Your chances of getting an STD increase dramatically. If you've lived with a guy before getting married, your marriage has a 75% chance of ending up in a divorce.

Have you ever thought of how you want to raise your own little girl? Don't you want her to remain pure and chaste, or do you want her to suffer from low self-esteem and insecurities (does he love me for me or for what my body can give to him)? Do you really want her to have to worry about STD's or getting pregnant or having a bad reputation? Don't you want her to wait for just one man who will treasure her for who she is and will wait for her until that ring is placed on her finger? Don't you want her to respect you and her daddy for waiting for each other?

So many of the clients I see regret losing their virginity before marriage. They suffer with feelings of low self-esteem, they hate how they were taken advantage of, they hate how they were manipulated into having sex - they thought if they didn't do it then they'd lose the guy. They live with the guilt of their actions for the rest of their lives. To get rid of the guilt, they develop eating disorders, drinking problems, or get into drugs. They never feel "clean". Until. . . they make it right with the Lord again and get back on the right road. They can reclaim their purity once again by deciding to not allow themselves to be used in such a manner ever again. As the song says, there IS forgiveness and a second chance. . .

The lyrics of this song says it all:

Darling did you know that I dream about you
Waiting for the look in your eyes
When we meet for the first time
Darling did you knwo that I pray about you
Praying that you will hold on
And keep your loving eyes only for me

Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you

Darling wait
Darling wait

Darling did you know I dream about life together
Knowing it will be FOREVER
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
And darling when I say
Till death do us part
I'll mean it with all of my heart
Now and always faithful to you

Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Cause, I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Darling wait
Darling wait

Now I know you may have made mistakes
But there's forgiveness and a second chance
So wait for me
Darling wait for me
Wait for me
Wait for me

Cause I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Cause I am waiting for
Praying for you darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
Darling wait
Darling wait
Wait for me
Darling wait
Cause I'm waiting for you
Cause I'm waiting for you
So wait for me
Darling wait
WAIT FOR ME

Thanks for posting this! Yes, purity is so important! If people had respect for themselves and for the person who will one day be their spouse, things would be a lot better! It's so tragic that so many youth these days don't get taught chastity. Without chastity, things end up such a mess!
