When a man desires a woman for his sexual fantasy, he doesn’t desire her for marriage. After he plays with her body, he categorizes her into his “not a marriage material” list.
Amazingly enough some women understand this fact the other way around. After they give their body, they think that the man is theirs to keep. It doesn’t work that way. Beloved, don’t let the movies fool you. Men love and RESPECT a woman who respects herself enough never to let anyone touch her body until marriage. ///
(As part of the Appeal for Purity’s two year anniversary celebration, which is going to be on Oct. 31, I will re-post some of my previous short and long posts. By doing that, those who are new to this page will get a chance to read it. The above note was originally posted on January 14, 2014.)
You know, I always say that I wish it could be possible to record God’s presence in a camera. But sitting down and watching this video more than four times, I realize that God’s presence is in fact always found in His Word whether His Word and truth come through a live seminar or a video clip. I find myself pretty much being overwhelmed by God’s presence and became in tears every time I watch this.
I pray God speaks to your heart and soul through the message.
The second session of this seminar was not recorded; that means I don’t have any more video clips of this seminar. ///
One of the two most pivotal moments of my teen years occurred when I was in elementary school. I was twelve years old. In the middle of our recess time, one of my friends who was a boy, came running towards me, away from his friends. He wanted to show it to me but one of his friends was fighting to take it from him. I didn’t know what the magazine was all about but I wanted to see it. So, I joined the fight to get the magazine and I took it from his hand and randomly flipped the pages.
I remember even the spot; the day, the time and the weather as if it was yesterday. I remember being frozen; not only me but I thought for a second the whole world had also stopped moving, PAUSED for a second. Continue reading The Two Most Pivotal Moments Of My Teen Years
One Saturday afternoon, I bought a beautiful dress and couldn’t wait to show it to my husband. So after we put the kids to bed, I said “Okay, now let me show you my beautiful dress I bought today.”
So I wore the dress and said “Okay, here we go.”
I thought he would say “Oh, My, you look beautiful.” But he kept quiet for one full minute which felt like one hour for me. Continue reading Keep Eve In the Grave
When our daughter was a little girl, around three or four years old, the most exciting day for her was anytime I braided her hair differently than usual. She would look at herself in the mirror, and while admiring her beauty, ask: “Do you think my dad will recognize me?” I always responded, “I doubt it.”
One day, she waited for her dad as if it was nobody’s business. Every now and then, she looked out of the window to see if her dad had come back from work. So, as usual, I called my husband and gave him some heads up. A few minutes later, he arrived at home and asked, “Who is this cute girl here? And where is my daughter? ”
Oh, my! She danced, jumped up and down, fell on the floor, laughed hysterically and said, “My gosh! Mom, can you believe that! My dad didn’t recognize me!”

“No, kissing is not an okay thing to do before marriage” is the answer of this video clip. I love the message very much! If you concentrate on the message, you won’t be bothered by my inability to speak in one language only. Continue reading “Is Kissing an Okay thing Before Marriage?”
God created sex only in the context of marriage. The boundary line of beautiful, healthy, fulfilling and satisfying sex is called marriage. Outside the blessed union of one man and one woman, sex is a wildfire.
“Can a man scoop fire into his lap
without his clothes being burned?
Can a man walk on hot coals
without his feet being scorched?
So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife;
no one who touches her will go unpunished.” (Proverbs 6:27-29) Continue reading The Boundary Line
This is the song we sang today in our family Bible study time. It blessed me so much that I thought it would be nice to share it with you all.
The song convicted me more than the topic we raised in our Bible study. Our topic was the prominence of idol worship in churches.
It is true that we can worship church worship services and Gospel songs while we neglect God and His Words. Wow! Scary, isn’t it?
Here is the song, “Clear the Stage” by Jimmy Needham, the first stanza and the chorus (make sure you watch this song’s official YouTube video): Continue reading Clear The Stage
Here is Part I. Where is Part II? Well, I’m hoping for it to come soon.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed worshiping God with Girum, one of my favorite Ethiopian Gospel singers! Don’t just watch the video; worship God and experience His presence. Continue reading Fantastic Parent’s Seminar at Toronto, CA
I just shared with my friends the Word of God I was meditating on since this morning and I thought it would be nice to share it with you too. So, here we go:
“But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” (Psalm 3:3)
Whenever I meditate on the Word of God, I tend to look for the exact dictionary definitions of words. So, I looked for the definitions of the words “shield” and “glory.” Continue reading The Word of God to Meditate On
