God sure has a sense of humour.
I’m amazed how God often uses things which seem insignificant, to protect us and for His glory.
I wear a purity ring. Don’t make a mistake. I LOVE this ring. I look after it better than my cell phone or the way I make my bed. It gets treasured with a lot of care. 😀
This past weekend, I was in town with my mother, and on the way, we stopped at a petrol station for a quick visit to the restroom. It was rugby day, everyone was wearing the green and gold shirts and spirits were high. As I parked the car, I noticed three young men right in front of me. The one in particular was really looking at me.
Now, I can tell real quick by the way a guy looks at you what his intentions are. And the looks I got here were of those that you can dump on the ground and trample on, not worth a cent.
My immediate response: ignorance. As I got out of the car, my ring was in perfect view of his sight, and his attitude totally changed.
I can just imagine what went through his mind… “Oh no, she’s married”.
I felt like kissing my ring.
Not only does my ring help to protect me when situations like these pop up, but it’s a testimony to others. Many people have noticed it and asked me about it. God has given me opportunities to defend my faith and speak up for my beliefs.
When I was in the States, a certain person asked me if I’m engaged (after seeing my ring). I told him, “No, but I am already taken. I just don’t know by who!”
Use your imagination and God will do the humour. We serve a God so amazing, we simply can’t keep silent. If words can’t be used, then we resort to other means.
If you don’t yet have a purity ring, and you’ve made a commitment to keep yourself pure, then do yourself a favour and get one. If you don’t know where, I’ll be more than willing to help. 🙂
