‘I have something better for you’

Twenty-year-old Jaye, of Massachusetts, is one of 12 young adults touring the nation as part of The Silver Ring Thing. Their event will be held in Omaha Sunday, Nov. 5 at the Scott Conference Center, with Air Force Airman Jarell Roach opening the show in comedy at 5:45 p.m. Click here for ticket information.

What follows is a snippet of Jaye’s story she will share at the event…

When I was 16, I made a commitment to wait until marriage to have sex. I figured it would be worth the wait. But then I was challenged by God — He asked me if I were to stay single the rest of my life … if He would still be enough, and if I would still honor Him with my body sexually.  

I hated that question, because I knew it was a no. I was only waiting to only get something in return. But after realizing where my heart was, I now know that this commitment is not only to get something out of it at the end, but to honor God because He asked me to. I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing this for Him.

The Lord constantly reminds me that He has a promise for me that has nothing to do with men. So whenever a guy comes up to me or an attraction stirs, God always lets me know, “I have something better for you, Don’t’ settle.”

There are a lot of good guys out there, but none of them can satisfy what my soul’s actually craves — love, confidence and security. Only Christ can fully satisfy that.

Sometimes He’ll whisper to me, “If I give this man to you, will you find your security and confidence in Me still?”

There’s nothing on this earth that can satisfy you – even friendships or, even my mom, or my sister still fall short. God is that source. My passion is to let kids know that the Lord that created them and He’s the One you need to run to, not man.

Silver Ring Thing team members eagerly await their Sunday, Nov. 5 performance in Omaha’s Scott Conference Center, 6450 Pine St., starting at 5:45 p.m. Front row, from left: Sidney, Lauren, Gabe, Ali, Jaye, and Jordan. Back row: Zach, Jay, Luke, Kaycee, Jimmy and Alex.
