Rebecca St James -- Wait For Me




Why wait?

In a culture of instant gratification, particularly regarding sex, this is a rare music video that goes against the tide. There is something that you miss out on, often, when you dive in and refuse to wait. Whether it's taking a sneak peek at Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, eating the cake before the celebration or reading the spoiler before the film, we often do this to ourselves and miss out as consequence. Is it worth the wait? What's your thoughts?

hmmm, interesting you raise this. A colleague of mine was telling me that she lost her virginity at age 14, and she regrets it, and wishes somebody was looking out for her not to make that decision. Her recommendation was to wait for somebody really special. This clearly lines up with the bible's teaching and this song too, to wait for your husband/wife. A friend of mine believes that this is because sex brings 2 people incredibly close, kind of like a promise, and that the hurt of a relationship breaking up is worse if you have had a sexual relationship... so, it's God's way of protecting us
