“KELAN KA IKAKASAL?”

Oh my gosh! This is one of the most common FAQs for single women and men. While I understand that there are some who are genuinely concerned over a single person’s long-term happiness, there’s also a percentage of of those who ask just because they feel like marriage is the magical solution to all of life’s problems.

Don’t get me wrong, I respect marriage. If the Lord has that lined up for me, then I know He will work all the details out. If He wants me to stay single, that’s totally fine as well. So I was just browsing through my Facebook and came across the trailer of Jodi Sta. Maria’s new movie “The Achy Breaky Hearts” which also stars Ian Veneracion and Richard Yap as her leading men. The trailer had me laughing the whole time as it played out scenes that a typical single working Filipina faced daily–family, a career, good friends, boyfriend/relationship goals, watching movies alone (I CAN SO RELATE! HAHA) and those reunions where relatives would always ask you the inevitable: “Kelan ka ikakasal?”

There isn’t anything wrong with aspiring or praying to find someone to spend the rest of your life with. I think however, it’s important to have the right heart before God and to also have the right motives for desiring a relationship. If I want a relationship just because I want to get out of a rut or I think it will solve a current problem, then that is not the right time to get into it. Two imperfect beings cannot fix each other for only God can do that.

Fall in love with the Lord! He is so enough! So many times, I’ve experienced God’s grace fill me especially when I have those moments when I feel lonely (yes, even #HappySingles have those days). The great thing is, God’s love NEVER RUNS OUT. So find satisfaction in Him and grow in Him so that your cup overflows. 😀

 

Blessings to you, dear reader!
