so today at TERC... they were discussing Relationships yet again... and something occured to me. People kept saying "confirmation"... so I called my boyfriend and I asked him.
did you start praying before we started dating?
and did you get confirmation from God before we started dating?
I asked this question because I didnt pray about anything before this relationship. All I knew was that there was always this whisper in my heart that he would be my husband. I dont know when it started... I dont even know how it started.. I just know that it was there... even when I was dating other people.. I didnt pray and I didnt get any confirmation so now I have to wonder..
My boyfriend shared a couple of stories with me... How one guy stated that God revealed to him in a dream who his wife was and he didnt even like the girl... and he would try to run away from her... but it seemed they kept getting thrown together in different settings... until finally he accepted... and found peace. Another story was relayed to me about a guy who wore his shirt inside out and told God that any lady who tells him that his shirt is inside out is the one... now Im not sure if this is what God told him or if this was the guys way of testing God out. Yet a third story relayed about a guy who prayed about a confirmation and said if it is to be so, then let it rain before 11pm and it did
Very very interesting. How many people out there dating someone... actually prayed about it? And if you did pray, what was your confirmation? Did you even ask for some kind of confirmation? and how did it manifest itself?
Now I have to wonder... am I really dating the right person? maybe not... maybe so...
I think as christians we like to preach the word, but I wonder how many people really follow it to the letter... We cannot escape the fact that we are humans and have fleshy tendencies. What about other religions. I remember a conversation I had when I conducted a talk-show in England recently... The question was one Ive asked on my blog before... "Is love enough in a relationship". During our discussion there was this one guy who kept giving us the definition of Love in the bible and stated that it is enough. In a relationship... I dont necessarily know that that particular definition is enough. What about other religions who may not necessarily subscribe to the christian point of view... I think everyone has a different definition of what love is.. and it's not necessarily all that is quoted in the holy book... or should it... and if it is, should that definition be enough to carry you through your relationship?
so God, relationships and confirmation... very interesting. I have another topic I want to discuss because I need some clarity on that. But this confirmation thing... should I now start over... break it off and try to start praying again then start over... I wonder how many who got confirmation are still together... what is the confirmation???? I guess it's different for everyone. Maybe even though I wasnt actively praying, that whisper in my heart... that was it????
anyways yall have a wonderful weekend... Im off to work for a couple of hours... isnt today the naija song day for pop idols?... if you're one of the few who hasnt heard... hop over to http://www.blogvillepopidols.blogspot.com/ and get updated!!!
