Some time ago, there was a lady who lived two streets away from my house in Lagos. She had a friend whom she pays visits in one of the BQ in my compound.
Each time she comes around to see her friend and we bump into each other, we just exchange greetings. So there was this afternoon she came to look for her friend, but unfortunately, her friend wasn’t around, so she requested to join me and two of my friends sitting on a bench, opposite her friend’s room. We obliged her request.
Barely 10 minutes after she sat down, she started crying. We didn’t know at first, because her hair had covered a part of her face. But it got to a point that she couldn’t hide it anymore and she burst into tears loudly.
“Ha! What happened?” I asked her and she replied “Nothing serious”. At that point, I knew she was going through a lot and it was obvious she couldn’t hold it to herself. So I told my friends to excuse me and I pleaded with her to follow me outside our compound, so we could discuss better. Immediately we got outside then she started crying profusely all over. Poor girl.
I still inquired to know why was crying and she replied with “I am tired of my relationship but I don’t know what to do because of the circumstance that surrounds it”. I was stunned! What could be the big deal that makes it hard to quit a relationship? I asked if she was in a spiritual covenant with the guy but she said no. Then what circumstance is worth your happiness?
She said there was a PROPHECY that, the guy she was in a relationship with is the right man for her. But unfortunately, the guy treats her with little or no respect and he abuses and treats her like trash.
I asked how long they’ve been together and she said 3 years.
Wow! You mean you’ve been crying and enduring all kinds of abuse for 3years all in the name of PROPHECY? No be juju be that?
When there are lots of responsible young men out there who are ready to treat you right and respect you for who you are. That’s quite laughable!
These days, I see a lot of people trapped in a complicated relationship like this lady I mentioned above, but can’t quit because of PROPHECIES. This is devastating and heartbreaking.
First of all, I’ll like to remind you that God is not an author of confusion. When God gives you a vision, he makes a provision for you.
God will never give you a partner that will give you a headache throughout your marital life. Neither will he give you a partner who derives joy in seeing you unhappy.
If you are in a relationship with someone and you don’t have peace of mind, please quit!
What’s the point of being in a relationship with someone who doesn’t make you happy or threatens your sanity? It’s not worth it.
I understand that God speaks and reveals his plans through some people, which we call PROPHECY but God won’t give you a problematic partner to manage for the rest of your life. He won’t give you a perfect partner because none exists, but His plans for you are good, not years of torture.
