“Lone Ranger-ism” in Christianity!

If you look in the dictionary for the word or phrase “a lone ranger” you will find this definition: “one who acts alone and without consultation or the approval of others.”

Can one of my organs be a lone ranger and make it?

Hmm! Can you just imagine if my heart one day wants to act alone, take a decision without consulting with my brain and without the approval of the other body organs and say something like this: “I want to chill today; I want to take a one week vacation because I am tired of pumping blood?”

Pleading for Physical Abuse to Continue

A4P Guest: I came to your page recently and I am trying to catch up with your writings going into your website archives. I love what I read so far except one, titled “Broke my heart into pieces” where you advised a wife to call 911 because her husband was abusing her physically. I can’t believe that you are advising the woman to do that. I am a living testimony where I changed from one person to another completely different person because of my wife’s patience and prayer. Twelve years ago, I used to abuse her physically, mentally and emotionally. Right now, I am a loving husband to her and a loving father to my two sons. If my wife had called 911 during that time, our marriage would have been history. So, why don’t you advise wives to be submissive enough as the Bible says so that their husbands will change and their marriages will be saved instead of advising them to call 911?”

A God of Second Chance

She is very good at making people feel at home. Most people get attracted to her because she gives everything she has; her time, money or anything she can give. But one thing people don’t know about her is this: She gives everything she has because she is scared of being left alone.

As she quietly celebrated her 46th birthday in her townhouse, she turned the TV on and sat down across the TV. She didn’t even know why she turned it on because she was not watching. She was “zoomed out” to somewhere else. As if the TV was talking to her, reaching to the remote control, she said, “I don’t think you be of any help for me today,” and she turned it off.

She wished if someone called and said, “Happy birthday! Let’s go out and have fun,” but who? Just ten years ago, her phone used to ring every minute. Not anymore.

She had to initiate any fun; and as long as she provided, most people would accept her invitation. Party, lunch, breakfast, picnic, home party, dinner party; you name it, she did it all so that she would be with others. But one thing she yearned; and that was for someone to look for her; to ask her out for lunch or something. Continue reading A God of Second Chance

Going Grocery Shopping while Hungry

I just came back from grocery. I didn’t know that I was hungry until I entered the Costco store. These people know exactly what kind of food to take out, at what time. At every corner, there is a table where you can go and taste different foods; foods such as ice cream, burger, lasagna, soup, cookie, and, hold on a second, and DARK CHOCOLATE!

I mean, who can resist DARK CHOCOLATE! Not me! I ate it like nobody’s business.
