A4P Guest: I’m a 22 year old woman and the man I’m seeing is 27 years old. We met in our church’s yearly young adults’ retreat and it’s been a year now since we’ve been dating officially. I love him very much but he flirts with every girl in our church. I told him to stop once and I let it go and chose to pray. He cheated on me once and I forgave him. A couple weeks ago, I found something on his phone and I asked him about it. He confessed that he cheated on me again a month ago. So, I called it quits and tried to move on with my life but I can’t stop thinking about him. Yesterday night, he called me and cried saying, “I want to celebrate the New Year with you. Please forgive me one last time.” I told him that I will get back with him. I know God wants me to forgive him and wants me to be with him, because that is what Jesus did for me. He takes me back whenever I come to Him. So, what do you advise me to do? I think he needs help, don’t you think so?
A4P: No, I don’t think so. The one who needs help here is you, not him. I think the man knows what he is doing and he is fine with it. But you don’t. Continue reading “I think he needs help”
I did this video last year but for some reason I’m thinking of Galatians 5:1 & 13 today and I thought this might be a good message to pass along to you today.
Remember, freedom comes with boundaries; including the freedom we have in Christ. Freedom without boundaries are called enslavement or bondage. ///
P. S. One correction on this video: 1 Corinthian 6:18 (not 6:8)
A4P Guest: Every church these days seems to be full of liars, gossipers, slanderers, cheaters, adulterers, hypocrites, and so on and so forth. So, I am confused; and I don’t know which church to go to anymore.
A4P: Pastor Billy Graham once said: “If you find a perfect church, don’t join it. You’ll spoil it.”

I believe it is a blessing to have social media today to help us stay connected with our friends and families and to meet new people; however to meet a person online and decide to marry him/her online? Uhhh? It is kind of tricky! The virtual world and the real world are two completely different things and we need to know that. ///
Did I ever say, “Save sex and all the kissing and touching business for marriage?”
Oops, I did say that multiple times. But, hey, it won’t hurt if I say it again and again.
After all, unless we hear something again and again, we don’t believe it because faith comes by hearing. And we live by faith; means our lifestyle reflects what we truly accept and believe.
So, it is always excellent to give our ears to something we want to believe and live for. ///
I always kiss and hug my kids in the morning. They all know this morning tradition and go with the flow even if they sometimes don’t appreciate it that much. Don’t blame them. Two of them are not morning people. But they know that they have no choice but to kiss and hug their mama in the morning. Continue reading Hug Tight those – – –
Thousands and thousands of people are losing their marriages because of social media, mainly Facebook. If we are social media users, our marriages can’t be immune from this problem either. So, when we use social media, we need to be cautious and vigilant all the time.
