Key Points From Article #8

  • God isn’t trying to stifle our sexuality. He’s determined to help us grow as healthy adults. So He asks us to trust Him with our desires. Developing self-control in relation to our sexuality helps us live satisfying lives as single women.

    • In what areas of your life do you find it easy to have self-control?
    • In what areas is it a struggle?
  • In the area of sexuality, a woman is often tempted to give away — too soon and too much of — her body, heart and mind.

    • Why do you think this is true? Are you more tempted to give away your heart, body or mind? What does that “giving away” look like for you?
  • God sees your body as His incredible and unique creation. Take a moment and read Psalm 139:1-16 together.

    • How do these verses make you feel about God? About yourself?
    • In what ways could believing these truths help you not give too much of yourself away too soon?

Next Steps — Read through these together.

  • Talk to God about which boundaries you are struggling with in your sexuality. Honesty is the beginning of change.
  • Ask Him for help and strength in this area of your life. Remember, God is for you and wants you to succeed.
  • Mark a date on your calendar to discuss another article from the Desire series.
