Sunday R&R

GOD’S PLACE IN A RELATIONSHIP

Since it’s Sunday I decided to get God involved.  Just because I write erotica books and talk about sex doesn’t mean that I’m the devil.  I’m in love with God, he’s been in my life since I was a child and I don’t plan on leaving him anytime soon.  So NOW!

I believe that God should be the center of all relationships but we often times forget that.  You can be in my situation where one party is more religious than the other.  He believes in God and I know he doesn’t pray a lot.  We say grace together when we eat because I make us.  I pray to God to give him more trust in the Lord, and maybe that’s why I’m in his life.

I chose a couple of scriptures that’ll help you understand how important it is for you to keep God in the center of your relationship BUT these scriptures are targeted towards married couples.  They didn’t do much dating back in the day, marriage was always the thing to do…..I wonder how the world would be if we still had that mindset.  These scriptures will be helpful for you to make it to marriage.

Proverbs 18:13- Communication

“SPOUTING OFF BEFORE LISTENING TO THE FACTS IS BOTH SHAMEFUL AND FOOLISH”

To all of us who hear things or believe something is jumping off with our lover…..the word is telling us before we go off and assume *CLEARS THROAT* we should give the other person a chance to explain themselves.  I continued reading just to make sure what I’m about to say is ok.  Now after you give him/her a chance to explain themselves it didn’t say that you couldn’t go off on them afterwards.  Listen, form your opinion and then act accordingly…..LOL

Proverbs 17:14- Conflicts & Disputes

STARTING A QUARREL IS LIKE OPENING A FLOODGATE, SO STOP BEFORE A DISPUTE BREAKS OUT.

I know we’ve all started a dispute before, especially us women.  Where we feel like we have to just finish saying what we want to say and we demand our men to stay and listen while the whole time he’s going “yo, go head, go head.” We know if we just keep on talking for 2 more minutes he’ll explode on us and boom we got the conflict we’ve been asking for.  Men you do it too, but a lot of times we don’t feed into it because we don’t want to fight.  If you don’t want the floodgates to open then just drop it, be the bigger person.  But I know that’s easier said than done.  But try because its written…..I didn’t make this up.

Matthew 7:12 Loving your Mate

DO TO OTHERS WHATEVER YOU WOULD LIKE THEM TO DO TO YOU.  THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF ALL THAT IS TAUGHT IN THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.

This has to be one of my favorites because it can be used with anyone in life, not just your mate.  When I read this the one thing I think about is respect.  No one wants to be treated bad or be used so its baffling to me when those same people who don’t want to be treated bad treat others bad.  I just ask before you do someone wrong just place yourself in their shoes and if it doesn’t make you feel well then don’t do it to them.

Proverbs 13:24 Parenting

IF YOU REFUSE TO DISCIPLINE YOUR CHILDREN, IT PROVES YOU DON’T LOVE THEM; IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU WILL BE PROMPT TO DISCIPLINE THEM.

I decided to include this one for all of my readers who are parents.  I’m not a parent but I have a wonderful mother and I know without all the discipline I was given as a child (and I had a lot) I wouldn’t be the person I am today.  My mother used to beat me and no it wasn’t child abuse….I’m a firm believer in beating your kids because sometimes they need to get their butt whooped. Now I’m not saying that discipline means beating.  There are other creative ways to discipline your child.  I am not a parent so I can’t speak much on this.  But when I read this I felt like God was saying, if you want your child to choose the right path in life, discipline them when they choose the wrong path so that way when he/she grows up they’ll know right from wrong.  I was actually afraid to choose the wrong path I had flash backs of beatings…LOL Naw I’m just playing.

1 Corinthians 7:3 Sexuality

THE HUSBAND SHOULD FULFILL HIS WIFE’S SEXUAL NEEDS, AND THE WIFE SHOULD FULFILL HER HUSBAND’S NEEDS.

Now this goes out to my married folk because we unmarried folk aren’t supposed to be having pre-martial sex anyway *LOWERS HEAD* So I’ll make this one short because it’s basically self explanatory.  For all you women who take away sex from your husband as a punishment…..God says that you shouldn’t do that.  For all you men who are too tired to have sex with your wife when she wants to have sex SMH God says you shouldn’t do that.  Just like a man always say he has authority over his wife’s body God also says that the wife has authority over her husband’s body.  God is a pretty fair person, its a two way street.

I hope you guys enjoyed this segment in Sunday’s R&R (Religion and Relationships).  Remember this is only my opinion and Im always open to yours.  Have a blessed day!
