Shit mehn! You remember my idol from the last time? Yeah! My Ex! He wants us to just ‘be friends’. Loool! ….for we are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy. Lol! That is how it all starts. Isn’t it?
Just the other day, I was listening to Pst. Ed Young on ‘Avoiding Affairs’ and he illustrated the damage caused by mere ants alone in the United States far outweighs the damage caused by fire outbreak. Simply put, little foxes really do spoil the vine. Just a little yeast will account for that big puff-puff (snack) that you see.
Have you ever reasoned that everywhere an idol was mentioned in the Bible, the only remedy was for them to be destroyed? Why? Well! Obviously! No one competing against God ever wins.
This is my take on the ‘21st-century interpretation of the Bible’; we justify our actions by watering down the Word. Hear how Jesus puts it in Matthew 15: 6, ‘you have made the commandments of God of no effect’. Yes means yes, and No, no. Any other addition is simply a man trying to twist His Words to suit our emotion.
Do you really think I do not desire to speak with the one I couldn’t at one point live without?
Hehe! Look at you! If you thought being a follower of Jesus was that easy, why then isn’t the whole world born-again? Haven’t you heard the term, dying to self? Haven’t you come to realize that even Jesus didn’t ‘feel like’ dying? Even Hulk Horgan gets weary too. So duh!
However, I had to make a firm decision to stop him from calling me. Mehn, it was tough! And it still is. However, faith without works is dead. I learned in this process what giving up Isaac meant to Abraham. I went as far as blocking his wife on my social media accounts because anytime I saw her, he was there. Shoot! Did she offend me? No! Do I love myself? Oh yes! As much as it lies within your power, do all you can to save yourself from past hurt. Detach from the past because it’s over. Epp (help) yourself Sis. We feel the pain more than they do.
‘If your eyes will cause you to sin, pluck it off’. You know what is holding you back, you’ve identified it, you have the Holyspirit, so why are you still tolerating nonsense? If it doesn’t make sense, biko (please), let it go. It pains me that some beautiful ignoramus will think I’m taking this too far, chei! Maybe you should read the prequel, read the Bible and then pray in the Holyghost.
Understand this also, my Ex makes sense well well, however, interacting with him, saying hello, does not just add up in any way. Na hello I go chop? You think say na so feelings just dey die so? Starve whatever is holding you back. I must now acknowledge that he is married, hence, communication between us can never be as before. Deal with it. And the beauty is, with Christ, you don’t have to deal with these things on your own or immaturely. There’s a way you withdraw from someone with class and style.
Sister Nice, I know you’re nicer than Jesus and don’t wanna keep ‘malice’, just know this, wisdom is profitable to direct. In all your communication with your one-time lover, do not bring up past memories. Hopefully, you won’t cross the lines. But as for me, prevention is better than cure.
Just before I call it a day, have you ever wondered how affairs developed? Na hello, hi dey start am (It starts with hello/hi). Even Margaret Thatcher is moved by what she hears. Be wise Sis!
