When the Israelites sinned against God, many of them died getting bitten by venomous snakes. Then they came to Moses so he could pray for them. Moses prayed and “The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.” (Numbers 21:8-9) Continue reading Looked at the Bronze Snake
Don’t you sometimes, secretly, wish if the Book of Ephesians chapter 5 goes up to verse 34 and says something like:
“Husbands, when your wives come to you with a problem, don’t try to SOLVE your wives’ problem unless they specifically ask you to solve it. Just LISTEN to their heart.” (I know the Bible is complete; I’m just saying)
You see, most men are naturally wired to solve a problem. When their wives come to them with a problem, they jump to solve it disregarding their wives’ heart; what their wives are really saying.

When a couple fights or “discusses” an issue, there are so many things that they are to pay attention to so their discussion will build their marriage, not destroy it.
Of course I am not planning to list all the things that, I believe, will help them but I will try to give to both the wife and the husband the one thing they should avoid during a discussion.

One day, my little one, my Biruk, (I think he was fifth grade; he is now 10th grade), he came and handed me an envelope.
“What is this, yenei mare (means, “hun”)?”
He smiled and said, “Open it, Mom!”

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.

I love going out with my kids. Well, I don’t go out with all of them that much these days because a new chapter of life has already ushered itself into our family. So, no more putting my kids in the back seat and driving around. Oh, how I missed those days! Continue reading Live in the “NOW”
What can I say except to say “Forgive us!”
No, I don’t judge nor condemn anyone but I pray for God to forgive us all!
O, God, forgive our unbelief in the name of Jesus Amen! ///
This is one of the questions married people should not ask.
“God, is this the right person for me to marry?”
I mean, this is a very legitimate question for unmarried couples to ask before they tie the knot, but married people, nah! Continue reading Is This Person the Right One?
“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” (Titus 2:3-5)
You have no idea how much I love this passage!
