My upcoming YouTube message answers the following question

“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?”

Don’t miss it!

The Bible verse I’ve been meditating on since morning:

“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!” ///

Freedom of Speech on Social Media

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

A Day to Say “Thank You” to My Dear Pastor

Pastor Hanfere Aligaze 02

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! ///

I’m not ready for snow!

I’m not ready for snow and I don’t think I will ever be ready for any snow any day. I don’t like snow and I don’t appreciate snow at all. Okay, let me say it, I hate snow. That is it!

They said that our Maryland is going to be covered with snow tonight and I’m not ready for it.

The only way I comfort myself during this season is by thinking about heaven. Do you know that there is no snow in heaven? Yes, there is no snow in heaven because the Bible doesn’t say so. Continue reading I’m not ready for snow!

No Amount Of Perfection

One day our youngest son, I think he was second or third grade, came from school looking very sad. I took a quick look at his face and within a second knew there was something wrong with him.

When we got home, I called him to my bedroom and asked, “You look very sad. Is there something you want to talk about?” His eyes were actually ready to let it all out.

So, wiping his tears, he said, “So and so said to me, “Your Mama doesn’t look like a mother.”

Helping him wipe his tears, I asked him, “Did you ask him what your Mama looks like?”

Nakedness

It was few years back when our kids were very little. While I was reading one of those interesting psychology books, I don’t remember which one; I read that in every human heart, there is this deep seated desire to be naked. I said to myself, “You must be kidding me!” The author continued saying that not only we desire to be naked but we desire others to be naked as well.

I said to myself; “That is absurd!”

Well, I respectfully disagreed with the idea and moved on to the next one. But the idea kind of stayed with me. Then to my surprise, I noticed something.
