I heard it on MTV?
Last night I couldn't sleep so I was channel surfing in the middle of the night when I came across a show in MTV about casual sexual relationships called "I am a friend with benefits". I am not sure what I expected from the show, but what I found was a total indictment of the casual sexual relationship. There were two couples on the show; in both cases one partner wanted the casual aspect while the other wanted a deeper relationship. In both cases there was pain and anguish.
When will people learn?
What finally struck me was something one of the girl's friends told her and I am going to try to put it here exactly the way she said it:
Don't settle for the one you can live with, hold out for the one you can't live without.
I have been pondering that statement all day long. This has been a lectio divina that has given me great insight into how God is working in my life.
That statement can refer to so many aspects of our life from partners to jobs to purchases.
So, I just want to thank God for dragging me out of bed, making me channel surf, and allowing me to hear that statement and contemplate its meaning. He really does work in mysterious ways
