So that one thing is clear- I am not clumsy, I am only giving the floor a hug because people are always stepping on him.
Ok, so I lied. I am extremely clumsy, but hey a lot of people are- just in case you dexterous people do not know what I am talking about- Being clumsy is: lacking dexterity, nimbleness, or grace.
All of us have been in a situation where we have tripped on some uneven pavement, knocked over a glass of water while reaching for another object, and even running into a really clean door here and there. (You know who you are.) I have moments all the time. This past evening I was having fun with my family listening to music and dancing. I made an unwise decision, got down on my belly and started flipping around like a worm. Yes, I did the 1980′s “funk period” dance move and it did not end well. Today I am paying for my lack of common sense with a lump on my head and a headache. In case you cannot put two and two together this worm hit her head on the hardwood floor. Sometimes I doubt I will ever make it thru this life in one piece.
Being clumsy is nothing to be ashamed of, it happens to everyone. Some studies say that being clumsy affects social abilities, phyisical wellness and many other factors. I tend to disagree. Being clumsy is a characteristic of someones personality. This trait may one day help somebody they meet in the future. How so you may ask. Bumps and scares and bruises leave people wondering, wondering leads to questions and quetions lead to conversations. There is a reason you have a bruise on your knee, a cut on your finger and a lump on your head. The reason? Psh! Like I know, but what I think is, God has a plan for me to maybe one day accidently run into someone- in a clumsy fashion- and help them. It may even be that someone will run into this post and really need to hear about my being clumsy. Honestly, I have no idea. I am 100% sure though that God always has a plan or reason for all my mishaps.
And on my own, I’m so clumsy But on Your shoulders I can see I’m free to be me and You’re free to be You. -Francesca Battistelli
If you are someone who is clumsy, whether it be physicaly, or you are having a hard time in life. Always remember ‘though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.’ (Pslam 37:23-25 NIV)
You are likely to leave this world with a bunch of physical and emtional scares, but they paint a picture of who you were. Go out into this world and stumble down your path in God.

I do not have a new physical workout that will get you into shape for the beach this summer, but I do have a great new way to train yourself in- Purity.
1. Learn what purity is
2. Talk to an adult
3. Get into God’s word
What do we do today in a sex-aimped society? This weekend I attented a wonderful conference called Culture Rock. Culture Rock focuses on the main points of how teenagers should treat purity in a sex-aimped society. Now, I KNOW this is an extremely uncomfortable topic- remember though the welcome did mention some “embarassing moments”- but it is extrememly important. If you have never heard God’s word on sexual purity then please keep reading.
When I walked into Culture Rock Saturday I was not expecting anything that I heard. In most situations people are to shy to sit down and explain what purity is and why it is so important. One of my favorite things said was by an author and abstinence speaker, Greg Speck. His words of humorous wisdom were “Sex, oh my gosh sex. It is great! BUT teenagers, it is a gift and idea of God! Do not abuse it!” Yet, we do just that. We abuse sex. It was meant to be an emotional and physical bond between two happy people in a marriage. Not stupid kids running around thinking it is the coolest thing. Of these teens 8,000 will get a disease every 24 hours and 2,700 girls will get pregnant. One-third of these pregnancies will end in abortion. Only 5% is intented and the other 95% are a mistake. Think about it. Do you want to be just another statistic?
That boy who sits there and tells you he will love you if you “fill his needs” is only going to leave your side. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10) The bible is telling us that you are getting a very special thing taken from you.
I want to be clear, I am not judging anyone who is not a virgin anymore- it is not my goal. What you should know is that there is still an abundant amount of grace waiting at your door step if you choose to except it. For the next six weeks I ask you to join me and my reading of a book called Sex: It’s Worth Waiting For by Greg Speck. I will not be talking about purity in my posts for the next 6 weeks but I will be adding summaries of my reading and I ask you to either pick up the book yourself or just read my sum-ups. I cannot answer all your questions- afterall I am still so young myself- the best I can do is give you some personal perspective.
Wait until your married and I guarantee you will not regret it. Give it a shot, anything can happen.
