3. Don’t allow your relationship status to become an idol.
I would describe an unhealthy consummation as:
Someone who’s allowed their relationship status to define them
Someone who’s overwhelmed by thoughts of finding a spouse
Someone who has stopped living and has literally become a lady in waiting; or
Someone who can’t think about anything but their wedding day each time they meet a guy
If this is you, I must issue a fair warning. You have made marriage an idol because you are focused on it more than you are focused on God.
It’s not like He doesn’t understand what you’re going through. He can relate to the desires that you have for a husband because He longs to have the same connection with you.
The moment that you repent and refocus on Him is the moment that you can start to live again with the joy and peace that you were meant to have.
