Transformed by Grace has turned one last August, and as you remember last year we had our first Blog Series named Project:Standard. I was actually reluctant this year, because I can’t think of any good series to follow up, until last night.
I was reading up on 1 Corinthians 11, about head coverings. It was contoversial actually, for if you read it as is and took it literally, would result to legalism. I asked God for help, to understand the scripture – until He revelaed to me something about submission – specifically wives’ submitting to their husbands (would be one of our topic for this blog series). And since I have read so much about marriage and love over the course of my devotion, I thought why not collate all of them on a notebook and perhaps really learn more about it – and then #RelationshipGoals was created.
I am not creating this solely for myself, actually I wanted to collate all this for my future kids – and now, I think God is telling me to share the journey with you.
It won’t all be all about romantic love – no, it to be all about love in general: a father’s love, a mother’s love, sibling’s love, friendship – relationships we have here on earth. Are you excited? Cause I surely am! I mean who wouldn’t? We’ll be learning love not only from the Author of Love, but Love Himself.
Join me in this journey, as we uncover #RelationshipGoals in light of God’s Truth. I pray we open our hearts to whatever God will reveal to us – whether be it have renewed and wise heart and mind towards relationships, or even a completely new outlook about love.
I saw this post to make a “reaction paper” about your past relationship(s). Believe it or not, it is actually a wise advice. The truth is, I actually did that (long long long time ago). Yup, I wrote something that reflected who I am during the relationships. I scrutinized myself (I am harsh to me). I looked upon my own mistakes, reflected upon it and most importantly prayed to God. I contemplated on what should be changed, what should be learned and what should be enhanced.
Believe me or not, my desperation led me Google-ing this phrase a lot of times during “The Dark Ages of 2016” (lol, our official title just like The Choking Hazard of 2015). Sadly, the answers I got are not that useful (well in my opinion), asI was expecting a straightforward answer that tells you what to do from the first day until the nth day in order to survive. I was looking for answers to mend the broken heart, unfortunately what I got just made me feel more broken and lonely.
Honestly, there are moments I feel impatient, and today is one of those moments. Impatient for you to come and find me. It is a struggle that, without God’s help, will make me insane — as each day without you goes by. At times I’m good by myself — I enjoy my own company; laugh at my own jokes, carry on with my own life. But there are moments when I pray and hope I could talk to you — you know, have deep and grown up conversations about life. But then I remembered something I read — might be a passage in a book or a social media post— about while you are preparing/building yourself, it is best to maintain a non-romantic relationship and let you grow and mature until you are ready. Seeing that we are not yet together, maybe you are still preparing yourself. I could only wish you were here. I could only wish I could talk to you. I could only wish I know you. That is why, my love, for your own good, and mine as well, I will let you focus on building yourself up than to pray on hastening your preparation. Until then, for your own good, I’ll wait. For your own good, I’ll prepare and position myself. Know that even now, I love you and I will try my best, with God’s grace, to protect you of my selfish desires.
Just went to a Single’s event last night — and I can say, I really enjoyed it. It was my first time to attend alone — and being the introvert that I am, I was alluding awkward eye contacts, “hello”s and “my name is…” (which I think I will really have to work on soon) up until the program started.
Hola! I’ve been away for long. I know I missed writing too — and you too guys! (I hope you missed me too) I have been on a vacation (lol not really, more of a company outing which I got stranded or extended for another day because of the typhoon), then my birthday came along (happy 25th to me! Cheers to living for 25 years!) and love and of course life.
