67957.) before I came to university, I lived quite a sheltered life. I didn't drink, most of my friends of were christian, even if I wasn't. And then suddenly I learn so many have lost their virginity, and suddenly I'm anxious to lose mine as well. I just want to lose it to someone who's really worth it. Being a virgin doesn't feel good any more, it feels like a burden, dragging me down.
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”—Romans 12:1 (The Message)
