i dislike it when people look down on me because i dont have ‘experience’ in a romantic relationship. that i dont have a say and i cant give advice to them because i’m a loser and a coward.
it’s true that experience teaches us things and we learn from it first-hand, but that doesn’t mean that we can take relationship lightly and try just because we can try again later if it doesnt work out.
(plus, honestly, all we need to know is actually written in the bible =O)
there are a few really Godly manly men that i look up to. where i see no hanky panky liquidity in relationships. no changing girlfriends because ‘each girlfriend will teach him something new about life’.
i believe these men choose to save that place in their heart for the best. and once they have chosen the best, they keep her. they work towards a closer relationship. and they fight and struggle to keep it going.
no giving up. no giving excuses.
what sort of man will you STRIVE to be?
a manly man.
that’s what John is.
so i didnt get to finish my words towards Nazar the other day about him being an awesome friend in my life.
there was one important point that i didnt get to mention.
the ungood thing about his compulsive behavior is that he will do things without thinking of the costs.
sometimes, he doesnt even think about how it would cost and effect people around him.
but that is also the best quality about being compulsive.
he reminds me that we need to be compulsive christians.
you know, when i told him i was sick, he straight away put his arm around my shoulder and prayed an earnest prayer for my healing.
in another time, all i did was share my concerns about school and that launched him into a prayer for me again.
i see him praying for people all the time.
how often do we see this?
i call myself a christian, yet, all i do is promise people that i will pray for them.
but what i really did was promise that i might pray for them because i may just forget.
im totally guilty of this.
why dont i just pray for that somebody in public right on the spot?
i care about the cost of people seeing me doing it in public. i get shy. which i shouldnt.
i care about the words i use. i fear i make a fool of myself. which i shouldnt.
lets learn to be Compulsive Christians.
compulsive to care and love for people no matter the material, the emotional, the social, or the convenience costs.
Love and Care
It is more costly NOT to
