RELATIONSHIP (Guest post By Josephine)

RELATION-SHIP

As simple as the word implies, – a simple ship that carries on board the people we relate to. In this ship, we, you and I are the Captains. And so must we be cautious who we let on board because there is no doubt somewhere along the journey they could be a raging storm.

Flashback and this was me!

Everyone was a friend. I couldn’t differentiate who to share a dream with and who to simply smile at, who to reveal vulnerability to and who to simply say a good morning.

Making friends out of people is a good thing but I have always weighed the word ” Friend” in a lot of cases.

I’ve met acquaintances who often complain how bad my relationship seems to be with them because I couldn’t seem to feed them with ” exclusive attention” and honestly that is how I have loved to let certain encounters be.

There have been friendships I have worked heaven and earth to belong to, an exact spot, without thinking if there was a seat for me. I had taught maybe the “me” possibly could revolve around the “them”. How pathetic it feels not to know where to get attention from and not.

Sometimes we handle co-workers like they are personal friends and no doubt we open ourselves up for the possibilities of offenses and betrayal. Just because you share an office doesn’t mean you should share secrets.

Even at church, and I know a lot of you out there will not agree with me. No doubt the church should have been the safest people with the safest people but a church folk is not necessarily a God friend, making us to think if we can tell God, then we can tell them too- after all we are Children of God we perceive.

Our disappointments come from the lack of delineation between which ship best fits which person.I realize we mostly get personal with people we should have kept at a respectful and cordial distance.

I have often had my own resentment with this simple phrase ” can you tell me about yourself. I will like to know you more”

I feel is one dumb statement. You don’t need simple words to know deeply about a person. Because if you have lived longed around people you will realise it’s virtually impossible to really know all about someone, to see into their hearts and know what’s going on below the surface.

My point is this simple. As we journey in life we must know at one point who we need in our Relation-Ship because sometimes crowd can sink a boat in the most turbulent times.

Take no offense when people show you where you belong, somehow truthfully that is the best place they will want you to be.

And take caution who you let in a special seat in your ship, they may be a Captain on their own and you know it-No two Captains can drive the same Ship.

WAIT

That man don’t love you like he need to
If he ain’t following Christ, he can’t lead you
I ain’t tryin’ to deceive you.

 

I know he look better than most men
But without Christ, looks are no reason for bragging and boasting

 

You got your heart on him
Now you can’t depart from him
You knew from the beginning not to even start on him
Compromising your faith for sex
Hurting yourself and God
Cause you outside of marital context
What’s next?
Mami show respect for your body
Instead of getting naked and naughty
Like sex is a hobby
You know what you’re supposed to do
Let him loose and cling to the God that wants to get close to you

 

You’ve been blessed as a chosen few
Mami, if ain’t rollin’ with Christ
Then don’t let him roll with you
Cause you’ve been blessed as a chosen few
And if ain’t rollin’ with God
Then don’t let him roll with you
WAIT!

 

 
I know you’re the apple of momma’s eye
A star in your daddy’s sky
But God knows you living a lie
You giving a guy, everything your husband deserves
It’s absurd
Don’t follow your feelings, just follow The Word!

 

 

You wanna be in a relationship
Well, you can give him your all, but how deep can the relations get
If your God’s on the sideline
You won’t be happy I promise
Until you understand, that God is the lifeline
He ain’t pleased with lust
So even if it feels right
Remember, he ain’t pleased with us, when we
Let our emotions loose without a ring on the finger
It’s only gonna come back to sting ya
Don’t let the singers sing you sweet lullabies
Without giving The King’s sweet love a try
It ain’t none better
Who else you know, that would give up his life
Just to love you forever
WAIT!

 

 

I know you thought that y’all could win together
Y’all been together
But all y’all do is sin together
You’re wasting your own time
You keep deceiving your mind
Saying that this is part of God’s design
Knowing he treating you good
Know his ways is nice
But he can’t love you like he should
He’s not engaged to Christ
And you know this ain’t the man for you
But you hold on like God ain’t got better plans for you
The whole worlds says ‘you should be dating’
God says you should be serving him while your patiently waitin’
Everybody rushin and racin
Huggin’ and kissin’ and hold hands, all before their days end
Yea, I know it’s hard but TRUST
I wouldn’t waste my breath on this song if it wasn’t a MUST

 

 

The same God that made you
The same God that died for your sins and saved you
HE ain’t tryin’ to play you, WAIT!

 

 

Your ready to go’… wait!
Can’t take no more’.wait!
I know it’s hard but, God is never late
Don’t follow your feelings’wait!
Just follow HIS Will and’… wait!
Girl, serve the Lord and don’t anticipate.
WAIT!
