Drop it like it's hot

A bad relationship, that is.

One Sunday my family and I were listening to the radio (107.9 in Atlanta on Sunday mornings has gospel rap, R&B, etc.) on our way to church. The topic was dating and their guest was Ty Adams the author of “Single, Saved and Having Sex.”

There were a couple of things that stood out to me that I wanted to share with you:

“We date while we’re wounded… there’s nothing cute about baggage,” Adams said. Ain’t that the truth! Think about it! You meet up with a nice young lady who you think you’d like to spend more time with and possibly the rest of your life, but before you can get into the relationship good she’s stalking you like a serial killer.

The problem? She has baggage from a previous relationship. Possibly a past boyfriend cheated on her or lied to her. Whatever the case… it ain’t cute. (Hmm, that’s the second time I’ve used “ain’t” in one post. Must be tired. Sorry.)

The radio hosts and Adams talked about how a bad relationship or an out-of-God’s-timing relationship can be a “destiny killer.” You can literally hold up your destiny by sleeping with and/or being with a person who you aren’t supposed to be with.

You could get caught up in lust and frequent premarital sex, which will definitely alter your path from God causing a delay in your destiny.

The solution? “Allow God to heal you of all that junk so you can enter into a relationship in the right shape,” Adams said. Seek God’s face for the answer to your heart healing and releasing soul ties, if applicable. Ask God to deliver you from the pain of your past and heal your heart so that you don’t enter into another relationship and treat the new person like a person from your past.
