Because it’s Valentine season, the pressure is on.
You don’t have to be a love guru to notice. Just check the twitter feeds of people and you’ll understand what I mean.
If you’re not on twitter, just go to family reunions this month and listen to what the titos and titas ask. Besides “how are you” I’m sure you’ll get “o, hijo/hija, may boyfriend/girlfriend ka na ba?” (do you already have a boyfriend/girlfriend?)
I’m sure they’re well meaning and desire to start conversations with their nephews and nieces. But it truly becomes a pressure.
SEASONS OF LOVE
God works with seasons and timing.
People end up frustrated or forced if they don’t understand the seasons God’s allowed them to enjoy at the moment.
If you’re season is to focus on what God has put on your plate at the moment (school, career, spending time with family, starting a business), then have a blast! Be secure in the season God’s put you in and you’ll notice a change in perspective.
Being both single and married are gifts from God. And each gift comes with its own set of wonderful blessings.
In the meantime, continue to build godly friendships.
As what my friend Christian Flores says,
“Christ-centered friendship is the best foundation of a meaningful relationship.”
MR. RIGHT vs. MR. RIGHT NOW
The right thing at the wrong time becomes the wrong thing.
Because of the pressure, emotions can become overwhelming. When this happens, we tend to make decisions on a whim without thinking of the consequences.
“Mr. Right” becomes a mere “Mr. Right Now.”
“Ms. Right” is replaced by “Ms. Right Now.”
Because you don’t have a significant other at the moment doesn’t make you incomplete.
If you have given your life to Christ and He is Master and Savior, then know that He alone is truly able to bring fulfillment and significance.
Remember, the 3 most important decisions you’ll make in your life:
- Who you will serve? (Master)
- How you will serve? (mission)
- With whom will you serve? (mate)
If you are looking for fulfillment and security in a romantic relationship, I can tell you now that you might end up disappointed.
Only One can fill all your needs – physical, spiritual and emotional… JESUS!
