How I Sometimes Feel About Praying for My Relationship

It feels foolish to me at times to pray for my relationship you know. I sometimes wonder “is God really interested in such or what’s the point”? Can’t I just toss the “him” in my life at the time aside when he’s acting anyhow? Why bother to pray?

I think at times that men are big babies honestly and they have a lot of learning to do. I’m not saying that to mean ladies don’t but I think I just had some expectations and the easy thing to do would be to toss him aside and move on to the next one. But if we all gave up on each other at first hint, how do we grow? Plus if I’m honest some of those expectations were unrealistic and he’s not a magician so I have to communicate what I expect from time to time as well.

Praying makes me feel like I’m weak. Deep in me, I want to stamp my feet, shout, make my demands and storm out. There’s a part of me that thinks that’s being strong… LOL. But doing relationships (friendship, boyfriend/girlfriend, siblings, any type of relationship really) God’s way isn’t easy man. It’s a lot of stretching.

I know prayers work and I know of course that God is interested in relationships but sometimes I just want to walk away from all of it. I feel what I feel but I submit it to God. At the end of the day, I want to live for him. I’ve learnt that relationships make you holy as they make you happy maybe even more on the holy part. In other words, it’s not a pizza party, it’s some hardcore pruning, bringing to light things that we need to deal with so we can be better individuals.

I once talked about love being patient and said it was about loving until there’s a change or a turnaround. It’s not an easy journey. It’s rough but at the end of the day, you will come out better and stronger. I’m still learning, Lord knows I am.
