Keep Eve In the Grave

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

A Role of A Father from A Family – – – A Generation

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!”

The Boundary Line

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

Clear The Stage

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

The Word of God to Meditate On

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

“I Dated My Girl Online for Three Years Now”

A4P Guest: I lived outside of Ethiopia since 2000. Last time I went back home was in 2011. I met this amazing girl at that time and fell in love with her instantly. We couldn’t spend much time together since I had to come back in short period of time. Before I went for vacation, I told my friends that I was going to meet my future wife and told them that I wouldn’t touch her except shaking her hands and that was exactly what I did. It’s been more than three years now and we are still together. We are actually more in love now than back then. I’m planning to bring her down here anytime soon. My eyes are dying to see her. I missed her so much. My question is when she arrives here, she only has me. I don’t want to sin against God and I’m a bit worried. I don’t even know if I can kiss her before we get married. I’ve already made my mind to propose to her. I just want to know if we can start kissing after I propose to her. What do you think about that? Continue reading “I Dated My Girl Online for Three Years Now”

Not a Sprint but a Marathon

“Christianity is not a sprint but a marathon.”

Wow, did you hear that? How true that is!

While a sprint is a very fast, quick and short race, a marathon is a footrace of 26 miles 385 yards.

Christianity is a long journey, and a combination of different marathons. When we think we finished it all, got it all covered, to our surprise we find ourselves standing at the beginning of the race in some areas of life. Why? Because each area of life has its own race. Continue reading Not a Sprint but a Marathon

He Once Again Captured Our Attention

Whenever we find moments to be alone, my husband and I spend most of those moments together talking about anything and everything under the sun. As a woman, you have no idea how much I treasure those moments.

We laugh with our silly jokes and try to catch up with our personal life if we miss any; but sometimes we both find ourselves sitting down and talking at a special presence of God. We undoubtedly sense His presence and know that those special moments are divinely calculated and designed by God. And at the end of those moments, we usually cry or end up kneeling down before God with awe and worship. Continue reading He Once Again Captured Our Attention
