Some youths enter into relationships indiscriminately. They keep hopping around without a sense of direction. They go in, have an accident with the car they’ve decided to drive by themselves without a navigation map. They are broken in pain and need a repair. They end up with endless number of scars. Hello, who sent you on that road in the first place? God or you?
There is this saying that ‘a broken relationship is better than a broken marriage’. But you can have an unbroken relationship too. Which is better? The latter, I must say. Allow God choose for you and it’ll happen. You don’t have to be shattered and battered before you get to your final destination. Some people get so affected by the routes they take that by the time they get to their bus-stop, they begin to act out of character due to the hurt and disappointment they have experienced. They become bitter and loaded with all sought of negative mentalities. In the end, they might even be the reason their marriage wouldn’t be peaceful.
Wait upon the Lord for the right person. God still leads His children. Let Him lead you by the still waters. Seize from jumping into the turbulent seas without knowing that’s what it is. Follow the One who knows the end from the beginning. Why would you choose to take a cutlass to create a path in the jungle all by yourself when the One who knows all routes can take you by the hand through an express road? Follow the One who knows the end from the beginning. Stop toying with your emotions. Stick with God!
