Relationships

Cordof3strands.org is an online community of single men and women believing for God-centered relationships, this group is open to everyone.

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12

         Have you ever stopped to consider how much time, energy, and emotion you put into your outer self, the externals of life? Think about it. We spend most of our life on the externals-making money, eating, exercising, entertaining, shopping , facebook-ing, tweeting, sleeping, and so on. Things that would make us happy. And yes, these are necessary for basic living.

         On the other hand, consider how much attention we give to others. How much time do we actually spend nurturing our relationships? First of all with God? Is our relationship with our (future) partner growing deeper and stronger? Are we making sure that our relationships with the friends we value are healthy?

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. – 1 John 4:12

            If you are single right now, and are not “in a relationship” yet, this is a place for you to be encouraged and to encourage other singles. We’re learning to build healthy relationships – among ourselves and with the opposite gender. We’re learning to encourage and assure each other that we are not alone during this season of “actively waiting” (women) for and “purposely seeking” (men) that One whom God has prepared for us. Ang hirap kaya maghintay no! Lalo na kung sinasabi sayo ng mundo na ok lang mag-“collect and select” dahil napakalungkot ng “buhay single”.

We believe that we can love our future partner before we even meet him or her. Paano? By loving God first; by seeking satisfaction and completeness in Jesus Christ – without necessarily being religious, self-righteous, or a “kill-joy.” Whether you are in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, are engaged, or “complicated” ang status ng lovelife mo, welcome na welcome ka dito kapatid!
We believe that in every meaningful and lasting relationship,

  • it’s not just about you and the person you are in a relationship with. (you + other person)

   • it’s not just about you and God – to the extent that you become weird and irrelevant (you + God – the rest of the world)

   • it’s about God + you + others – whether these are friends or prospective romantic partners.

Kung single ka, kasama ka dito! Para sa atin ‘to! Join us in our pursuit of God-centered relationships. God’s Word assures us that , a cord of three strands is not easily or quickly broken.
