Facing Our Challenges Head-On!

December 22, 2015

Dear Julie: Over the past 15 months, I’ve lost 85 pounds and I look good. The problem is guys that never even noticed me when I was heavy are coming on to me. I’m uncomfortable about this. If I wasn’t good enough for them before, why am I now? I’m still the same person with the same conviction about no sex before marriage. How do I weed through these guys to find one who has the same values I do?–Suddenly Sexy


Dear Suddenly Sexy: As you said, you’re still the same person with the same convictions. I don’t think it will be too difficult to weed through the guys once they understand you’re not interested in intimacy before marriage. Meet them individually in a public place, tell them where you’re coming from, and see how quickly the ones who are only interested in your new body make tracks. Those who care about you as a person with a mind and feelings, will be more difficult to shake.


Remember, friends, as challenges come our way,
we can face them head-on
through Christ who strengthens us!
