If we avoid to be spiritually challenged in every area of our lives, we forgo the opportunity for us to go to the top of the mountain.
If we only look for those who bless us, give us all those encouraging and uplifting comments, messages and Bible verses, we will be spiritually “malnutrition”. If we are spiritually “malnutrition”, we lose any strength to finish our journey “on the water”. We won’t have any motivation to keep on keeping on. Continue reading On the Top of the Mountain
He was not going to church as often as he used to. He had good fellowship with some Christian friends but he kind of caught up with busy life and felt estranged from them and the things of God.
Then little by little, his prayer-time turned from one hour to five minutes. He knows that he is a good looking guy who attracts any woman in his vicinity. At times he blamed his look for finding himself in bed with a number of women he didn’t even know their full names. He swore to God and himself never to have sex with a woman before marriage but he didn’t seem to be able to stick it out. Continue reading Disguised Fire
I was writing one beautiful story to share with you all tomorrow, if it is God’s will.
Then something caught my attention for me to stop what I was writing and started writing this.
So, all our kids went to bed while Berhan and I stayed in the kitchen, catching up with our emails and everything else. Then our little one came down and said, “Mom, I’m still waiting for you to pray for me.” Continue reading The Heart of a Child
It would be an understatement if I say, “I’m excited”.
Didn’t I tell you all last time that the title, “Beautiful Cinderella” of my book didn’t pass the scrutiny of the editors? Well, here comes the new title they came up with, the one I literally, instantly fall in love with, the one I gave two thumbs up to:
“ Beyond the Fairytale,
with a subtitle:
“An Appeal for Sexual Purity.” Continue reading Beyond the Fairytale
Marriage is very different from dating. Dating has some sort of excitement to it almost every day. It is sweet and makes life bearable. Especially for a girl who stole a man’s heart, it is a blast. She may sometimes feel that she is flying on the air. She easily embraces herself as the most beautiful and attractive person ever created on this planet earth.
When she ignores him, he texts her five hundred “I love you” and “I’m so sorry” messages and she continues ignoring him, just to receive more romantic messages. Continue reading Marriage and Dating are Different for Men
Thank You, LORD, for giving me another day to come to You in prayer. May Your Name be blessed forever!
I have received many good and perfect gifts from You, LORD.
Above all the gifts, LORD Jesus, You gave me Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die for me on the Cross so I might live for You. Jesus, You became sin for me so I might be God’s righteousness. Thank You, Lord Jesus! Continue reading A Prayer of A Wife to Her Husband
“Mystery? With man’s sexual nature? Mystery? Men love sex and that is where it ends. There is no mystery with man’s sexual nature.”
I know, I once thought that too. Some researchers didn’t want to waste their time either with the issue that is “straightforward”, as they said. Continue reading One of the mysterious natures of a man’s sexual nature
It was around September of 2009. I was reading one of the daily devotional Bible study materials I used to receive via email. And I ran into an interesting article and I read it and at the end, it read, “if you want to sign up for a 40 weeks long daily Bible study note, give us your email”.
I signed up. “I mean, what do I lose? If I don’t like it, I will “unsubscribe”. That is all.” I thought to myself. Continue reading What is on your table?
Do you know who addressed the people of God like: “Adulterers and adulteresses!”?
It was James (James 4:4), who wrote a letter to the people of God who were going through tough times.
Why did he address them like that? Continue reading Love of God
Early on in our marriage, I used to pack my stuff to go back to Ethiopia for every little conflict I had with Berhan.
You see, we were the first ones to talk about getting married among our friends. We got married and we were all alone. No married people were around to guide or mentor us. Not only from our friends but we were the first ones to get married from our siblings, from his side and my side. Yeah, can you just imagine! Continue reading Having People Over Us
