I met up with 2 very special people for dinner today. It was an extremely blessed session for me because they paid for my meal, but more than just that, I managed to receive certain revelations through our casual conversations.
One thing that really struck me and made me pause for a while was this:
Me: “… Yeah, that’s her only boyfriend. They have been together for many years. All my relationships lasted less than a year.”
P: “God is saving you from heartbreaks.”
P: “If you are in a wrong relationship, it won’t work out and you’ll have to break up eventually. All your relationships ended within a year, because it is easier for you to handle. If God had permitted for you to be in the wrong relationship for too long, let’s say 5 years, you can’t handle it when you break up.”
(Of course these weren’t the exact words, but the gist is there.)
Wow? I haven’t been giving much thought about relationships, but this struck me. I am sure God has other plans: He has someone else in mind or He simply doesn’t want me to get too distracted/committed for the time being.
God saved me from heartbreaks.
