Relationships and Work

Morning Word
You have to understand that there will be seasons in your relationship that will truly test your commitment to each other. And if you and your partner do not anchor each other in; love, respect, trust, care, support, communication and obedience (in terms of submitting yourself towards keeping each other happy), your relationship will have a very tough time surviving. Will you two have days when you both disagree with each other? Yes you are supposed to. Will you two have days when the romantic mood fades? Yes you are supposed to. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the glamour of being in love that, we completely overlook the grind that it takes to make love work as well. Relationships can be a lot of work, but when you are with the right person, the work can be very rewarding and worth it in the end.

Life Partner

Morning Word
You are still the person someone is praying for one day. Being single is not a curse. It’s way better keeping to yourself and being happy than being with someone who doesn’t treasure and value you at all. Those are the worst relationships, when you keep giving and giving and giving and nothing changes in the other person’s attitude towards you. They make you feel like nothing you do will ever be enough. They make you feel alone and worthless. They might even take it a step further and show other people more love and attention than they do with you. Those kind of people are not the ones meant to love you. But someone who has been praying and waiting for you, will make everything that has to do with love a lot more easier. They won’t treat you like you are not important. They won’t put another person’s smile above yours. They won’t make it such a struggle for you two to be happy. They will complement your needs and your effort the same way that you do with them. That’s your teammate. That’s your life partner.

Positive Relationships

Morning Word
You can’t grow positive relationships with other people in negative soil. If you really want to improve the other relationships in your life, start attending to your own garden more. The better you feel about yourself, the better you will interact with other people. The better you feel about yourself, the more patience you will exercise as you wait on the right kind of love to enter your life. If we spent just as much time looking for love on the inside as much as we do looking for it on the outside, we would all be healthier individuals to love. We would argue less and communicate more. We would listen to understand someone else’s perspectives even if we don’t necessarily agree with them eye to eye. We wouldn’t be so fast to cut people out of our lives who only wanted the best for us. Our garden determines how the other relationships in our lives will blossom. If you really want the best for other people, the very first step is giving them the best version of yourself.

Promise Me

Morning Word
Promise me that you will take as much time as you need to work on yourself before your next relationship. Promise me that you will never let your past heartaches find its way into your next relationship. Promise me that when you finally find someone, you will support them in every way possible and that you will always try being a positive influence in that person’s life. Promise me that you will not keep records of past mistakes they have made and that you will not constantly remind them of their flaws. Promise me that you will listen to understand instead of listening to reply when you two do have arguments or disagreements. Promise me that your love for them will always remain at the forefront no matter what happens that day. Promise me that you will walk with them through the storms and not run for cover and abandon them when it rains. Promise me that even on your bad days, they will still get the best possible version of you.

Great Love

Morning Word
Great thing about love is how high it can leave your spirit feeling. To know that you went through so much pain and can still have someone find delight in the way you smile is amazing. You will always be more than enough for the right person that needs you. And some of us have been through so many situations that it has taught us to protect and appreciate the good once we finally have it again. God is preparing you someone to make you smile like you never have before. He is preparing you someone to make you feel a way you never felt before. Your spirit will be everything their soul was yearning to have. Quietly your souls will connect and continue to grow fond of each other even without you two being around. God is working on the love you need because the love you want will never be able to achieve the things this new love will bring.

Good Men

Morning Word
If you listen to the world long enough, it will try to make you believe that a man doesn’t care about love anymore. Sometimes the world can have this twisted jaded view of what a man is. The world will tell you that most of us are cheaters. The world will tell you that most men are incapable of treasuring and loving one good woman. The world will try to make you believe that most men are these uncontrollable creatures who prey on women and can’t pray for women. The world thinks that most of us don’t want to be in love because of a few bad apples or a few bad experiences that other women have had with bad men. However, some of us still do care about love. Some of us still do care about building a solid foundation with one great woman in our life. Some of us can’t wait to be the man who brings home the groceries so that the whole family can eat. Some of us can’t wait to be the man who provides and protects the entire family under our umbrella of care. Some of us aren’t on a mission to hurt and break down our women because we would rather love you and lift you up. Don’t let the world make you believe that a man doesn’t care about love anymore because we do, you just haven’t met the one tailor made for you yet. IG@woodtheinspiration

Building

Morning Word
Relationships are about building. In a relationship, both people should be building a bridge of love between each other so that they can meet in the middle. You meet in the middle with making each other smile. You meet in the middle with making each other happy. You meet in the middle with making compromises for each other and when you need to make important decisions together. You meet in the middle with listening and trying to understand each other. What I’m trying to say is, the safest place for a couple to meet is meeting in the middle of love because it’s in the middle where the foundation is the strongest. Meeting in the middle is where you find the most peace as a couple and where you learn how to balance each other out. The reason why most relationships don’t stand the test of time and can’t weather storms is because we don’t spend enough time laying down a solid foundation before taking things to the next level as a couple walking in love.

A Good Man

Morning Word
A good man will always appreciate a good woman. He understands that her time is valuable. He understands that her presence in his life is something to never take for granted. He understands the courage it takes for her to show him the scars that have hurt her the most from the past. He understands that a good woman is worth more than every precious ruby and diamond combined. He understands that even though a woman can be seen as the weaker vessel in a relationship in terms of physical strength, that doesn’t mean that she isn’t as equally important to the relationship as he is. He will worship her and never discourage her. He will protect her heart and watch over it as if it was his very own. He will never step outside of the relationship or speak down to her with a disrespectful tongue. He will continue to love her even when she feels unlovable. He will be her center of peace in the middle of chaos. He will continue being a positive influence in her life.

We All Desire

Morning Word
Life will bless you in ways that you never thought possible. One minute you could be going through so much hell with someone you tried to make a relationship work with, and then the next minute you could find yourself with someone who understands the importance of showering you with peace, love and support. When you have finally met someone who can be genuinely committed to your growth and happiness, you truly have found someone special. At the end of the day, we all desire one person we can share our day with. We all desire someone we can run to whenever we have good news to share. We all desire having someone in our corner who won’t quit on us as soon as they are exposed to our flaws. We all want someone whose love can be consistently counted on. There is nothing like waking up and knowing that you have someone beside you who is in it with you for the long haul. IG@woodtheinspiration

Good Men

Morning Word
Good men aren’t drawn to criticism, they are drawn to praise. Ladies you should celebrate your man more than you criticize him. The more energy you put into encouraging him, uplifting him and recognizing him, the greater man he’ll end up becoming throughout your relationship. The more positively you speak into his soul, the more he’ll want to go to the moon and back to keep you happy. The more you let him know how proud of him you are, the more he’ll end up accomplishing with you by his side. Uplift your man more, your relationship will benefit so much more because of it. Good men deserve to be recognized and appreciated too.
