Syota Problems

Emotional Purity.

Did those words ever crossed your mind?

Naalala ko dati, tinanong ko ‘yung isa kong kaibigan na Christian kung nagkaroon na ba siya ng syota. Nagulat ako sa reaksyon niya, para niya kong sasapakin, “Ang pangit pakinggan!” sabi niya.

‘Yun pala, ang ibig sabihin ng syota, ay “short-time”. Short-time partner.

Hmm, nagkaroon ka na din ba ng syota? Este short-time partner?

Ako, oo. At masakit sa ulo.

Hindi ko alam sa iba, pero may sablay kasi sa konsepto ng short-time relationships eh:

  • Tinatanggal nito ang vision ng isang tao for marriage (at kung hindi mo pa alam, sobrang importante niyan),
  • Nadi-distort din nito ang totoong definition ng love at higit sa lahat;
  • Nawawalan ang isang tao ng emotional purity dahil dito.

Tadhana

Think of this: if we don’t have any vision for a lifetime relationship, one that is God-centered, then we’re just defrauding the person.

Sabi sa Bible, we have to be good stewards of God’s gifts. All the relationships that we have are God-given, so the question is, are we taking good care of those relationships? Or are we just deceiving them just to fulfill our emotional satisfaction? By the way, God can only fulfill our satisfactions.

Naniniwala ako na gustong-gusto ni God na maging pure tayo hindi lang physically, pero pati emotionally. Sabi din sa Bible, may tamang oras para sa lahat ng bagay. Kaya relax lang kapatid, hindi ka pababayaan ni Lord. Don’t settle for less for what God had planned for your best. =)

If you’ve messed-up in the past like me, I have another story to tell you. sa next blog ko na lang ipopost. 🙂
