You’ll never know dear, how much I love you🤗
Please don’t take my sunshine away🥰”-Johnny Cash
Hey there! Welcome back! Welcome back, welcome back!🥰
Dear Christian Brothers and Sisters,
I write this to you, to let you know the importance of submitting your relationship life to God.
Never think that because a guy/girl is good to you, that they are good for you. I’ve come to realize the importance of knowing this .
I know and understand you want to be loved and so , when your dream guy/girl arrives, it doesn’t mean you just jump on the bus of relationship and say,” I like you, you like me, let’s get into a relationship “.
My darling reader, relationship is an investment, and whoever you go into it with, determines the amount of yields you get in return.
Are you an asset in the first place? Or do you just want to have an asset and remain a liability .
Let me share a story with you of a young, industrious lady, who loved the lord with all her heart. Always wanting to please God, she finally met the man she had always prayed to God for after so many years of being single. God,” answered” her prayers. Did He?
P.S: THIS IS FOR BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS
” My name is Anthonia Blessing and this is my story .
Once upon a time 🐒, there was a fine young man with all the physical qualities every girl would dream of, his eyes were everything perfect, his height? Girl, don’t even go there. He had to be,” the one”.
For so long, I waited, I prayed, I fasted , I knew my worth and I wasn’t going to let just any man have me. I was laughed at, I mean, at the age of 24, I had never had a boyfriend.
One day, one day, I met my prince charming, about to sweep me off my feet. He was,” gorgeous”.
Our first conversation was a dream come true, I never saw myself speaking to such a fine guy.
Surprisingly, I managed to keep a straight face on 😐.
Not only was he fine, he was a gentle man. An answer to my everyday prayers .
Few months after, we got talking, and guys 😝, he tells me he likes me. 😅”I must have gotten a big Fish”, I said to myself. Guys hardly ever approached me, so for a fine young man to, gosh, I felt like a Queen, CINDERELLA!
But you know na, as a babe, you gats maintain balance 🤦♀️..
Meanwhile, in my head 👰🤵, we were on the alter already 😅.
Finally, I tell him I like him as well… I opened up to him though, and told him, I wasn’t ready for a relationship.
I was scared, I mean, he was going to be my first boyfriend. I had to make sure He was God sent and that He loved me truly as much as I was starting to love Him. As a gentle man he was, he said it’s fine, He would wait for me🤗
We prayed together, went to church together, did Bible study together. We even went on evangelism together. To mention, His voice when singing, was like the angels of heaven dwelt within him.
We continued with our,” situationship”
It was a dream, waking up every morning to hear his voice and going to bed everyday, knowing I’ve someone who adores me🤗.
We spoke about,”everything “. Even the not so fairy tale things to speak on. He told me about His past and the mistakes he made before meeting Christ, he opened up to me and I did to.
Something about his imperfections made me more attracted to him as we continued speaking.
Months past, getting to the 6 month, I was finally ready to say,” yes “. He had proven without any shadow of doubt, he was God sent, capable of leading me for the rest of our lives.
I went to God to thank Him for this gift and as I was praying, God told me to stop ⛔. “What? Why do you tell me to stop? , ” I asked. He said,” I never blessed this. “
I started praying again, this time, against every evil voice trying to stop my progress in this relationship.
How can God say such awful words ? I heard again, ” I’ve always told you not to go on with this “. In confusion, I started sweating profusely. He then reminded me of how on so many instances, He sent people to share their stories with me on failed relationships and why, How he spoke to me through dreams and visions. How He even spoke to the guy, but both of us were head over heels In love, we forgot about God being the centre of our relationship.
Yes, we prayed, we fasted, evangelized etc, but we never asked God if the relationship was His will.
To cut the long story short, I had to end things with the guy, I had to obey God, I knew it was His voice I heard.My relationship with God mattered more to me. But it was hard, this guy was my first love, he was the guy I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, I wanted him to be the father of my children. He was my crown, the reason for my joy. We had come so far together, I felt like his rib.. For 8 months, although we stopped speaking, I would replay all the voice notes he sent to me, look through our gallery together etc.
Then, after months dealing with depression and not being able to forget him..
I realized I learnt 7 things. 7 things I wish I knew before I told him how I felt.
(To be continued in next blog post )
For now, please, don’t make any hasty decision to enter into a relationship or sleep with that guy/girl ! Please, no matter how long you’ve known each other, if you’ve not gotten a confirmation message from God by yourself. Wait! Keep praying and please, seek counsel. “
