hey I've been looking for those kind of books while talking to God, What me and my girlfriend are going to talk about and study about love from the Word of God, and from Himself... I mean you're all right about looking for books or topics on "how to maintain the relationship with our girlfriend/boyfriend books" but looking for it is not gonna get you anywhere.. It's a worldly concept of relationship, It's like you're announcing it to yourself that, you are not serious in your relationship with your gf/bf. Yes, it hurts to me too.. that all this time we were looking for something that the world could never understand. So when I was surfing the net God talked to me...
This revelation from God, opened my eyes and my heart to the person I love so much...
You know what God said? "Do not get in a relationship if you're not going to marry the person. Be serious about him/her, for I have made him/her perfect and is the right person for you. But you must thrive to be the right person for him/her. Remember your PROMISE to him/her and to ME your God."
Guys, we're not in a relationship because we just love each other. Being in a relationship is a preparation for marriage. It's not a joke. It's the truth. Let's not go wasting our love to the person God did not prepared for us. I'm glad I could share this to you, since I am one of you looking for books and stuffs for boyfriends and girlfriends.
those books are right! It's about marriage, preparing life with your partner, getting ready (for us guys), staying pure (for girls), building our relationship with our bf/gf strong in faith, trust and of love. Putting God in the center of the relationship. Yes it's hard, for sometimes we get confused by the times we argue, and times we get to hurt each other. believe that's what I am going through right now, and I believe you are too! That's why we came looking for books, stuffs, and topics on the net.
It's about MARRIAGE.
For us guys
: Let's prepare a future for our girlfriends, (if we truly love them We Will and We Must!) for they entrusted their lives to us, their future is in our hands. For those of us that are still studying, study hard, get good grades! don't skip class! Love our girlfriends, take good care of them. Save our allowances, (let's not spend too much!) MANAGE OUR TIME WITH OUR GIRLFRIENDS, FAMILY, CHURCH, SCHOOL, AND ESPECIALLY GOD!
Lead a bible study/devotion. Ask God for confirmation, ask other elders, your parents! DO NOT BE SHY! They will understand!
If you have a job already, then goo for you. You are a step ahead in preparing for your marriage. Save money, and love your work/job, be faithful. It's God's gift to you to prepare a life with your girlfriend. and MANAGE.(same as above).
For you girls
: Prepare yourself in the day of your wedding. Keep yourself pure until the day of your wedding. Remember to set limitations. Trust your boyfriend! Always give chance. Forgive! (because I know, that we guys, unconsciously, ten to hurt you in small ways) Please forgive us! Don't just sit and wait, help your boyfriend prepare for that special day! Speak out to him and let him know what can you do and what can't you do. Don't just sit there waiting for him, you are risking your relationship. We guys also need you in building a relationship. SIDE BY SIDE and HAND IN HAND!
Help him prepare for your wedding day! Don't be shy to ask what you may be of help to him, and frank him because we guys are too proud and don't want you girls working hard. REMIND US THAT WE CAN'T DO IT ALONE. If we can't handle a bible devotion, take the lead!
This goes to all of us boys and girls!
BE TRUE TO YOUR PROMISE TO YOUR BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND AND BE TRUE TO YOUR PROMISE TO GOD. God gave you your partner TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM/HER.
Let's help each other! If God is speaking to you, share it to us! I am always open to hear it. God often uses other people. ALWAYS PRAY!
