I went for a friend’s wedding in 2020 and on our way back with a lady I’d just met, i got a call from a guy [friend] who based in same city we went for the wedding. He asked if we could see and probably have ice-cream before i leave town.
Nice idea I thought to myself but I asked if I could get back to him shortly. I placed a call to my husband [sorry🌚, boyfriend then] and related everything with him. The lady i was with wore this shock and couldn’t wait to understand what was happening.
She felt what i did was unnecessary and couldn’t believe a 21st century chick could do that. I was equally shock that a Christian can think being transparent in a relationship is new/surprising.
Imagine going out on a date with someone who isn’t your partner without your partner’s knowledge and he/she gets to find out from someone else. The emotional damage you’ll cause them, the stress of explaining your innocency and the fence of trust broken would have been saved by the ‘insignificant’ 1minuetes call of ‘hey Babe, so so person asked if we could see and I think it’s not a bad idea since we’ve not met in a while. What do you think?
A lot of little things we ignore in our relationship/marriages are what birth the big issues. The Holy Spirit is still in the business of whispering wise counsel and seemingly easy instructions to us but because we think they’re ‘unnecessary’ we tend to ignore.
There are times He tells you to say sorry even when you’re wrong but how can a fine girl like you say sorry first? Or why should i let her know about my movement/ intentions as the man of the house?
I will love to talk about privacy in Godly relationship but let’s do that some other time.
The Lord is still speaking wisdom.
As minor as the instruction, it has the power to save your marriage/relationship.
Cheers to a better relationship and marriage powered by divinity ❤️
