If people understood the true purpose of chastity, they would see that it has nothing to do with fear or prudishness. Nor is it a repression of sexual desires. Rather, chastity is an exercise of the will, to choose what is good, the greatest of all that is good. It is a refusal to allow the desire for pleasure to displace the call to love. Pleasure is not a bad thing, but when a person pursues enjoyment at the expense of another, love is abandoned.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.

In my deepest wound I saw Your glory, and it astounded me.

So I met this girl, and we have gone out 2 or 3 times! And she is cool and nice and cute, but yet somehow I don’t feel attracted to her, or any connection what so ever! I really do want to give it a try! But something in me just doesn’t feel it! And she is nice and everything! I just don’t see anything more than a friendship! And I feel kind of bad, cause I think she likes me! And I really don’t want to lead her on, but I also want to give it a try!

I don’t know it just feels weird! And I think now I understand some of my female friends that complain about friend-zoning guys, not because they don’t think they are cute or cool or whatever, but because they don’t feel and attraction/connection!

Just promise me you’ll always be a friend.

Cause you are the only one.

Arrest my heart
From its reckless path
Release the chains in me
Awake my soul
To the hope You hold
Your grace is all I need
