Dating Unbelieving Person

From all the things God commanded His people, the Israelites, this one command got my attention last week:

“Do not plow with an ox and a donkey yoked together.” (Deuteronomy 22:10)

Okay, I clearly understand those commands such as, “Don’t kill” and “Don’t do adultery”; but “don’t yoke an ox and a donkey” command kind of got me a bit confused. Continue reading Dating Unbelieving Person

I feel Stuck!

A4P Guest: I’m 28 years old and I got married a year ago. My husband is a nice person. I decided to marry him because I thought I was attracted to him but to my nightmare, I now realized that I was only attracted to his spiritual life, not to him. He used to tell me about God, the word of God and what God had done in and through him when we were dating. It was my joy to see him on stage. He is a solo singer and he also leads worship. He is loved and adored by everybody in our church. When he leads worship, Missy, the whole congregation gets lost in the worship. I was very excited when he asked me out because he was the dream man of many of my single friends and mine too. I now come to know that I am in love with the man on stage, not off the stage. I don’t know if you understand what I am saying. I still love to see him on stage, leading worship and everything but other than that, I am totally not attracted to him, especially sexually. Whenever he approaches me to kiss me and everything, I get dis – – – because there is nothing in him that draws me close to him. No chemistry! Every interaction with him feels like chores. And on the other hand, he doesn’t have that much spiritual life outside the church. He doesn’t pray that much. I thought he would help me to grow in the Lord. I am now the one to remind him to pray. I feel stuck!!!! What do I need to do? Continue reading I feel Stuck!

Sweet and Colorful Marshmallow

I read about “Marshmallow Test” study today done at Stanford University in 1960. The subjects were children of ages four to six year olds.

These little kids will be given one marshmallow (can be cookies or pretzel sticks). They are told that they would be rewarded with the second marshmallow if they wait for 15 minutes “without giving in to the temptation.” Continue reading Sweet and Colorful Marshmallow
