Sometimes I wish I could just say, “Screw it” and run back to H, do what we both want to do, and move on with our lives. As I was exiting my car today from our Father’s Day dinner out at Moreno’s, I thought, Man, if only he was here. If only we can just screw everything and just head to the beach now and watch the sunset together. If only I had not said anything and we just kept it the way that we did. There was no harm, right? It’s just so much easier to do it that way. Makes both of us happy.
I clearly fail to see the harm in going back to the way things were. I forget time and time again. I am easily forgetful. I’m just like the Israelites in many ways. It’d be nice if everything was dandy and we could work something out, but 2 Corinthians 6 tells me not to be unequally yoked. As a believer, I cannot have a dating relationship with a non-believer. It’s so much harder to follow Jesus than it is to follow the flesh, BUT I know that in the end, it is worth it.
