Today, I will be sharing with us the importance of having the Holy Spirit, and ensuring that our partner does the same.
They were certain things I used to do in a relationship which I never saw a big deal in until the Holy Spirit began to chastise me.
Some of these things meant normal to me, but God made me realise I needed to work on them.
One of them is, If I'm in a relationship with someone. I don't know how to keep up communication with my partner's (would-be) family. Naturally, If I don't connect with you. We can't talk for long ( except for business or counsels) to avoid me saying things out of context. I can't fake it. If you are smart enough, you will know. So, I try to be myself.
I told myself I wasn't going to do "eye service" and act what I can't maintain in marriage during courtship. But, God made me understand it's something I needed to work on. It's not about doing eye service but, it's essential to know how to relate with them better.
In life, the best way to grow and be better is to be TEACHABLE and this is something the Holy Spirit is great at.
There are many things God has chastised me about which I didn't pay attention when people talked about them. Then, it occurred to me that marrying someone the Holy Spirit can't communicate with is like signing for a disaster.
We are humans. We can't always be right. Sometimes, we may not even listen to our partner except God comes in.
Today, I beseech us to be deliberate in choosing a partner. Please, don't let love and material gains be the only reason you want to marry someone. Be sure they have a personal relationship with God. This will save you from many issues in marriage.
I pray for more of God in and through us. Amen.
To your relationship success.
