“I am a 28 years old Christian single man. The one thing I desire in my life right now is to get married. I have dated two to three girls so far. The girl I am dating right now is just an amazing girl. The last thing I want is to lose her. So, if I were to ask you to give me three important principles I need to know so that I end up marrying this girl, what would those principles be?”

A thermometer doesn’t have its own temperature. It tells you the surrounding temperature it is in.
If you stick it under your arm, it reads 98.9 degree Fahrenheit. If you take it out and stick the same thermometer in your deep freezer, it reads -20F. Why? It is a thermometer. It has no “temperature” of its own.
Well, that is not the story with a thermostat! Wow! Thermostat sets its own temperature and takes possession of its surrounding! Its surrounding won’t tell it at what temperature it needs to run! Oh, no! The thermostat itself tells its surrounding at what temperature it needs to exist! Continue reading Are you a Thermostat or a Thermometer?→
A4P Guest: I came to your page two weeks ago. First, I thought you were a feminist. Then I thought you were one of those politically complicated to figure out women who vote for those dictator men. I’m confused now. So, which one are you?
A4P Guest: Then who are you?
A4P: I’m a daughter of God! Until you read all my posts I so far posted, it will be very hard for you to find me a group where you can categorize me perfectly. Tricky! Tricky!, ///
“There is no divination against Jacob,
no evil omens against Israel.
It will now be said of Jacob
and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’” Numbers 23:23
Did you hear that? Wow! Neither divination nor any omen works against Jacob! It doesn’t work because the One who dwells among Jacob is called God Almighty! The only thing Jacob and Israel’s enemy can do is this: Saying to himself and others every morning, “See what God has done!” ///
I heard the news on my way back from my kids’ basketball game yesterday night. I wanted to write this before I went to bed because I was totally “SPENT.” So, as usual, I prayed so that God would give me this day to write about it. Praise the LORD! God gave this day!
So, on the news yesterday, they said that freedom of speech had to be “reevaluated” once more “because some people are using social media to “target and assault” individuals.” The lady who was interviewed (from my memory, not word by word) said, “Facebook and other social media are targeting, for example, women.” Continue reading Freedom of Speech on Social Media→
A4P Guest: I’ve been married for the last four years now. We have a 2 year old daughter and a one year old son. God and the things of God have a special place in my heart. And I know that God called me to a ministry, to get involved in counseling and leading the prayer group in our church. However it is getting very hard for me to attend church programs and prayer meetings because my kids cry a lot whenever I go out of the house and my husband doesn’t want me to get involved in any church ministry. Jesus said, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26 – and last week, I meditated this Bible verse for the whole day and decided to go to church for a prayer meeting, even if my kids were crying and my husband was pouting. When I got there, the pastor asked me to lead the prayer meeting and everybody was blessed beyond measure. So that night I realized that it was the devil who was behind all these; trying to keep me away from my call. Please tell me how I can fight the devil. Continue reading “The devil is trying to keep me away from my call”→
Well, let me say this before somebody out there gets mad at me.
Some women can keep their cool from month to month and from year to year; and we are very thankful for them. But some of us are struggling at least for three or four days out of a month trying to keep our “nice attitude” from turning into a nightmare. And during those few days of the month, we scare the people who live with us to death.
My Berhan knows how to go around my mood but my kids used to struggle to understand it. When they were little, it was a very strange and sometimes scary moment for them. Continue reading I Can’t Keep My Cool→

My pastor for the last 20 years has been Pastor Hanfere Aligaz, the senior pastor of the International Ethiopian Evangelical Church in Washington, DC.
Oh, how I thank him! I hope you guys don’t mind if I address him here, as if he was the only one who is reading this post.
Pastor Hanfere, thank you for being my pastor for the last 20 years. Thank you for praying for me when I was single and confused! Thank you, Pastor, for opening your office door for me and my “boy-friend” when we were scared and confused, like 18 years ago. Thank you for counseling and leading us to the right place. Thank you for blessing our union when we didn’t have anybody. Thank you for buying a big cake for us on the day you blessed our union as a husband and a wife. Thank you, Pastor, for anointing and praying for each one of our children as you dedicated them to the LORD. Thank you, Pastor, for embracing my ministry when I first told you for the first time. Thank you, Pastor, for asking me and my Berhand about Appeal for Purity every time you see us.
Above all, thank you, Pastor, for loving me, my Berhan and our beautiful kids. May the LORD bless the rest of your years! May the LORD bless your children, grandchildren and grand-grandchildren up to 1000 generation! Oh, how we love you! Stay blessed! ///
