It’s 10:38pm, it’s late, pretty late but I can’t sleep. Even after the hectic day I had, I still can’t sleep so I’ve decided to write.
Friday’s Love Letters is supposed to be up today anyway so let me use this as a therapy.
Why can’t I sleep? What am I thinking about?
Most of those who read my posts always have an urge to pray for my marital life. Some say “don’t worry, the right one is coming for you”… I love the prayers and all and I am really touched that people care enough to put me in their prayers but let me be real with you for a bit… contrary to what misconceptions there are, I don’t worry about my marital future. I know God’s got it in control. I write about relationships because I simply have an interest in doing relationships God’s way. I write mostly to share the word to others and also to me as God opens my eyes to see…
I confess that I rarely even think about mushy love and at Akikitan last sunday, I prayed more for two of my friends to be with their “the one” this time next year than I did for myself…
But this night however, I am thinking about love. I can’t sleep and of all things, I am thinking about how “he” would have sung me a lullaby with his deep voice(yeah I love deep voices,lol) if he were here and it’s all well and good… I know others feel like this too.
And here’s what I just did- I took advantage of my relationship with my Father.
No, I am not been overly spiritual, but I spoke to God about the way I am feeling-actually I did more of telling Him not to awaken love in me before it’s time and telling Him to stop whatever is coming on if it’s not time.
I love the fact that I can paddy with God like this, that He knows me inside and out, that I can feel Him smiling at me, that I can feel His hands around me, that I talk to Him about what I feel as He is my first husband indeed.
Why don’t you try it?
Why don’t we all try it?
You are human to want someone to sing you to sleep…
You are human to think about love and it doesn’t mean that you are not born again…
Why don’t we all just turn those feelings back to God, bridge the gap in our relationship with Him and feel Him as our first husband indeed.
Stop feeling “somehow”, stop feeling like something’s wrong.
Build your marriage with God, bridge the communication gap, let Him know that you will put Him first even when the feelings threaten to over flood you.
And this isn’t cheesy, this isn’t magic. It does work. A real relationship with God that is as tight as this does exist.
Work on it.
Talk to Him.
He is our first Husband.
Isaiah 54:5-For your Maker is your husband– the LORD Almighty is his name– the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth”
And uhm, in line with my love for godly relationships, your very own Imperfectlyperfect partnered with Tobi Atte of IJustMetMe to bring something really earth shattering to us youths.
The CONVO by IJustMetMe comes to Lagos!
IJustMetMe will hold the first Lagos installment of The CONVO on saturday august 23rd 2014. It will be just after my bar exams and absolutely perfect for me!
The CONVO is part of the Relationship Discovery Series currently hosted in New York.
Tobi Atte (Founder of IJustMetMe) truly weaves and breaks down relationships in practical, relatable and applicable ways. He is a certified Christian Relationship, Life, Motivational and Faith coach and the host of the GPS Me! Radio show on NewdRadio.com in New York.
And remember that trending article on the blogosphere? “10ways to make your man go gaga over you?” It was written by Tobi.
I sincerely feel that we even if we know some stuffs, we can never know all. Its great to drink from the wisdom God has deposited in people He has placed around us. Eziaha of www.eziaha.com wrote about how inthe’s blog posts help her even in marriage right now… Them nor dey prepare finish but you can fill your mind with the right things right now. Most youths need a re orientation of their mind sets as regards relationships and IJustMetMe merges the spiritual aspect into practical everyday relationships. Great mind shifts occurred in the convos held in New York previously and I am sure it will be the same thing here.
I will be giving away some free tickets on this blog though not right now-you can indicate now anyways so you can reserve your space before the giveaway time and we can make it a mini meeting of people I havent seen before right? Great stuff to look forward to for me. lol.
In the meantime, because I am a partnering sponsor of the event, you get to have an input in what is covered at the event and tell Tobi Atte about what you want to hear more about and the issues you are facing, so that he can make the event even more tailored to what you are going through.
So IJustMetMe has created a VERY short custom (anonymous) survey. Take a second to take the survey and save the date. Here it is:
Seriously, I am not joking about the quality and depth of content at IJustMetMe. I follow his blog, you can take a peek too just visit www.ijustmetme.com and take a look, or watch some videos on the IJustMetMe YouTube Channel HERE
And errh, I may not post anything again till August, even though I have something I really wanted to share for monday’s inspirational drive even as I write now.
Or I may post something again before then… but if I don’t resurface on this blog till August, I leave you with this- “BUILD YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD”
Yes, you can get to the point where instead of feeling sorry for yourself, you talk to Him.
You take those feelings of wanting love or feeling tempted, or anything at all about your emotional life to Him.
You can have a date with Him, in your room, on your bed, just like you will have a date with “the one” when God brings him to you.
No time to feel sorry for yourself.
God is our first husband… lets treat Him like He is indeed.
Please do take the survey above, PLEASE share this post for it to get to all and indicate if you want in on the free tickets I will have to giveaway. Its in August sha oh, but first to come gets preference yeah?
*I Love you all, for real.
