Gospel musician Lady Prempeh has disclosed her regrets for engaging in premarital sex before she got married. In an interview on ‘This is Gospel’ on Hitz FM, she said premarital sex is “so disgraceful” although it is considered normal these days. “That’s something, to me, I felt I shouldn’t have done it. I should have waited till I get married,” she stated.
Lady Prempeh added, “premarital sex looks normal now but if you know whom you’re serving, that’s a no go area for Him.”
She advised fans to follow the teachings of Christ especially in so-called contemporary times when premarital sex and other worldly life is considered the norm.
“If you have to follow this path you must be on it. Don’t try to sway or go your path and believe God to come with you. No, you have to go his way,” she advised
1. Avoid Tempting Situations
Winning early means staying away from traps. The last thing you want to do is find yourself alone with the object of your unhealthy desires, whether it is images or actual people.
2. Consider The Consequences
While pondering the object of your desire, also ponder the consequences of action. Is it going to help or hurt your marriage? Think about where your actions can lead you when Jesus comes.
3. Avoid Pornography
Besides the obvious reasons that avoiding porn will help guard against lust, there are psychological reasons as well. Porn creates unrealistic expectations and desensitizes our minds towards our partners or friends.
4. Use Social Media with Caution
There are many benefits of social media, but there are just as many pitfalls. We are reunited with people from our past and introduced to those who are new. Old sparks can be renewed or new ones can be lit. So you can stag on a Christian Blog like this, to help spend meaningful time online.
5. Question Your Intent
Most times, when our minds wander sexually, we aren’t really seeking pure sex. We are seeking to replace something missing in our lives and our relationships. It could also be that we are trying to distract ourselves from dealing with something difficult. For each man, these things will be specific to his experiences. Figure out the root issue and work to correct it.
6. Consistent Prayer
Prayer is the act of communicating your thoughts, worries, hopes and dreams to God. Lift up the desires you are feeling and ask for help. God made you and knows you and can deliver you time and time again.
7. Choose Your Friends Wisely
When battling sexual temptation, there are plenty of people we can find that will encourage and enable it. You can still be their friend, but by all means, avoid joining them in their poor relational choices.
8. Keep High Standards
To be a gentleman is a choice. A very good choice, and this world today needs many more. Despite the vast amount of temptations that life throws our way, we should hold ourselves to the highest of moral standards. Self-discipline in all areas of our life leads to positive results.
9. Redirect Your Passion
Rather than being controlled by untamed lust, direct that passion in positive directions. Use that energy to brainstorm about ways you can bless your wife. Perhaps focus on things that will make the world better like volunteering at a homeless shelter. Coach a youth sports team. Mentor troubled individuals.
