Finally . . . the WHY?

About a month or so back I did a series entitled Love - Ex, Why?, Zzzzz. Remember? It was a reader questions series and we took time answering each others questions. Before I begin today’s post I wanted to preface it with a couple of things. I know that I said that I wasn’t going to be documenting my life anymore, but what I’m about to discuss I feel is a legitimate topic. Yes, Libra is involved . . . I mean, how could he not be. In my last “relationship” I was told that all men cheat. It’s just in their nature. They can’t be faithful and that doesn’t take away from their love for you but hey, just deal with it. I even did a series entitled GET LIFTED a couple month’s back dedicated to how infidelity was the norm and a natural human occurrence. But we sat down and started talking the other night. I’m not exactly sure how we got on the subject but he broke down a man’s “inability” to be faithful in a different way. He said, “As a little girl you were taught to go to God for everything. So if you’re tempted to do something or you’re having issues in your relationship, prayer is the avenue that most women take to “save” them from doing something they don’t need to do. But men are the opposite.” He said, “Little boys aren’t always reared as girls are (religiously speaking). Rather than take the avenue of safety and refuge, men take an avenue to facilitate their need to cheat. So, rather than going to church, they go to the club or go hang out with their boys (who, no doubt, will encourage the act if they’re single, if they don’t like his girlfriend, or if they’re just plain immature). So rather than work on it spiritually first, emotionally, and then physically . . . they hastily jump into the physical thing with someone else.” Ain’t he somethin’? The last thing he said was . . . “Relationships are only solid when God is present.” Gotta love that man! LOL!!!! But I wanted to hear what you all had to say about his philosophy. Ya’ll know I’m a little partial, but I want to know what you all think (especially the men). Can’t wait . . .

I think in relationships you have to have God as your foundation. I say that because no one is exempt from cheating or anything else for that matter. If it had not been for the Lord on my side.....(you finish it) I agree with Mr. Libra, no relationship will be solid with out God as the foundation. It's imperative! My husband and I make a point to pray and do devotion everyday, because we know that the world is so crazy. The enemy is running rampant trying to find misfits that will mess up. With God in the equation and an active part of the marriage or relationship, you will make it. Sure, you may be tempted, as Jesus was, but you can combat that. With every temptation we as believers must remember that God makes a way of escape.....only if he's apart of the relationship. Those are my views...............I'm out!
