It all seems so easy being that person who’s always giving others advice, particularly women when it comes to relationships. Yes, I’ve had my fair share of dating mishaps and mistakes but there are some things that I haven’t experienced. There comes a time when someone you may know becomes involved in a situation they know they shouldn’t be in. You convince yourself that this could never be me. But what happens when it does become you? I’ve always been the person that said, “Girl that could never be me in a relationship like that.” But after examining some things going on in my life I had to tell myself, “Hey, that kinda is you!” So then what’s next? How do you stop yourself from going down a path you clearly know you have no business going down? What do you pray? Who do you talk to? How do you even convince yourself to stop? These are real questions that I’m asking because I personally need to know. I’m not perfect, I know temptation usually comes when I least expect it or when I’m moving in a new direction in my life. But it’s about discipline. (Easier said than done.) No one likes to be disciplined and we certainly don’t want to discipline ourselves but as I sit here in my room typing this on my phone I can’t help but to tell those of you going through similar situations that it will get better. The Lord your God will make a way.
“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
1 Corinthians 10:13
Which brings me to the title of this post. You can’t negotiate with God no matter how much you want something. If it’s meant to be yours then it will be. And if it isn’t then have the confidence to know that God will bring you something better. Hold on to that and let that be your comfort. It may hurt, it may burn and leave you heartbroken and feeling as if you’re missing out on something great. But God makes no mistakes. Hold on to His word and know your worth.
