When it comes to waiting on God, it seems unfair for how long God wants us to wait. It is not like we don’t pray enough or anything. We do pray but it feels like our prayers don’t make it to God passing through the ceiling.
Personally, I sometimes feel like God is waiting on me, not me waiting on Him. I think He waits for me until I get my acts together, knowing how to wait and receive from Him.
When we wait on God, I believe it is not the length of time we wait on God that matters the most but in what kind of condition we choose to wait on Him. Continue reading Waiting on God
A little emotional right now but I can write this. I got emotional after watching the movie clip of the “Irreplaceable”.
If you live in America, please don’t miss a one-night theatrical event, “Irreplaceable”, which will be in theaters across the country on May 6. It’s going to be only for one night. You can buy your tickets online. It takes like two minutes. Continue reading The “Irreplaceable” Movie
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
If we have been broken into smaller pieces and been put back again by the mercy and grace of God, we know how to speak hope in the life of those who just got broken into pieces. But if we have no experience of being broken, we tend to pick up a stone to break those who didn’t make it through without being broken.
So, sometimes, it is wise to pray to God, “LORD Jesus, please break me so that I know how to carry those who are broken.” Continue reading He came to Us
We are who we are mostly because of our circle of friends we choose to hang out with.
Are they complacence? Are they indifferent for the Work and Kingdom of God? Are they nominal Christians? Do they have integrity issue? Chances are we are the exact copies of our friends. Continue reading Our Circle of Friends
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
“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?
