The speaker was pointing out how sometimes Christian find it hard to wait on the Lord. We pray for something and then we give up because we might find it hopeless and after while we stop waiting, praying and trusting in the Lord. Today was an encouragement because I wanted to give up praying for my family salvation, that the Lord would saved, I wanted to give up praying for the internal struggles that I was dealing with and stop praying about everything else. Sometimes I find myself stop praying that God would give me a gentle and quiet spirit and so much more. Stop praying for my desires of being that biblical woman and glorify God in every way. But today has reminded me to not give up, to wait, pray and trust in the Lord.

as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:14-16
As a young Christian woman I want and should show other women what modesty is all about. I want to show others that virginity is a way of thinking, living and sate of being. I don’t need to show all of my skin to get attention and waiting for my husband is not a waste, when I am with him on that special day I don’t want to bring any baggage on that day.
The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold. Psalm 45:13

A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. Proverbs 15:1-2.
Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. James 3:5-6.
I realize that I need to watch out for the things that come out of my mouth. There are times I have hurt people with my words and after I said the things I said I do not feel any better. I pray that the Lord will forgive for the mean things I have said and those I have hurt with my words to forgive me. I pray that there will be a guard over my lips. I want my talk to be to the glory of God and will edify those around me.

“15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin”.
“ 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death”.
Because I am in this flesh there will be times I will fall short, but I just need to come back to God and repent and ask the Lord to help me. I no longer want the things of this world even though sin is still present, it’s just that I see them differently and sin no longer controls me.
