It’s our incoming 5th year now. The best thing about this blog is that I’m able to just use my talents and write to glorify our Lord and Savior. It’s an amazing way to be able to serve God and thoroughly enjoy it! You have been such an awesome part of my journey in writing for the Lord! Here are some of your most read entries:
I’m not about to burst your bubble. I’m not about to say that you won’t get married. I’m not about to declare your life to be one of divine single-hood (singleness?). But here’s one thing I want to tell you: There’s a myth that’s circulating around Single Christians today. And it’s termed as “God’s Best”.
First off, let me tell you how this all came together. The bits and pieces can be found in these entries as I wrote them in my principles before entering into a relationship, how courtship should be, dealing with heartbreak, letting go, closing doors, struggling with rebound, preparing myself to be the best man, trying again and finally letting God write my love story.
So many break-ups and divorces are happening today. Some years ago, people would be ashamed to admit a break-up, much more a divorce. However, nowadays there are people who, without a second thought, would tell you that they’ve had 3 divorces or 5 previous break-ups. The sad part about it is that it’s becoming the norm and society has accepted this openly. What are the reasons behind it?
Broken hearts, empty promises, nostalgic feelings, and the longing to love and be loved again. These are some of the now common phases of life that we go through. It seems normal to go through courtship, to have an ‘In a Relationship’ or ‘It’s Complicated’ status in Facebook. Sadly, it also seems normal to have your heart broken and charge it to experience. Don’t get trapped in the rat race of love, courtship and relationships.
There are tons of people like me. You may not know it but your son or daughter, your brother or your sister, your neighbor, your cousin – we are all somehow in the same boat, rowing on the same strange ocean, against the same tide. I was once a computer game addict. This is my confession.
Being in a relationship is fun. It has been for me and Sean for going 3 years now. It has been for many of my friends who say they are still in love with their partners and had been together for more than 5 years. Having a so-called partner, for me pushes me to grow faster (mentally, spiritually and emotionally speaking). It urges me to serve, to be more patient, forgiving and to be kind. To have someone to share things with, whether it be simple meals, deep hurts or corny jokes you heard during the day. But my question is, if being in a relationship is so good, then why are there so many brokenhearted wives and fed up husbands? Why can’t we see our parents in love as much as they were before?
In more than one occasion, I have verbally informed Sean how I felt that I was second priority to his work. By God’s grace, Sean is the man I would soon marry. The best man God ordained in my life to be my lifetime partner. And because of His faithfulness, He blessed Sean with a wonderful business as an SEO specialist. He started this business and continues to be a steward of it only because of God’s almighty hand and goodness.
Like it or not, there are certain things that women look for in a man. Don’t worry, you’re not born with them. Every guy has to develop these things into their character. That’s you and that’s me. It’s not a sure-fire way of getting the girl of your dreams but I’m pretty darn sure it will help you take care of her heart.
Our emotions are powerful decision makers. It is more often used to make a purchase and justify why we need it. It move us as a person. It is a powerful force that can even drive our actions. The Bible often pertains to our emotions as our ‘heart’. The Bible also tells us to guard it. How do we do it?
One day he said to her, “If you give me all your candy, I’ll give you all of my marbles.” She gave it much thought, and agreed to the trade. He took all her candy and went back to his room to get his marbles. But the more he admired them the more reluctant he became to give them all up.
2013 was an awesome God-given year for me. I’m very hopeful for 2014. It’s the year I’m going to get married! You’ll be seeing more of conflict resolution and marriage blogs from here-on out!
May God richly bless you!
