Question: My husband and I had conflict we couldn’t find a solution for. So we looked for Christian counselors and went to one of their offices in our area. We didn’t want to tell our church ministers because everybody thought that we had a perfect marriage; so we felt embarrassed to tell them of our struggles. And my husband felt really uncomfortable telling anyone about any of our stories. He said, “They will tell everybody”. Continue reading Question and Answer
What matters the most in life is not what we do but why we do it.
We humans, created by the image of God, don’t just latch on porn videos for no reason. None of us get addicted to porn because we happened to run into porn by accident. No, we don’t. Some people were exposed to porn but they walked away from it as if they’ve never been exposed to it.
Then why do some people find themselves in it for life?
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
Making every little disagreement or conflict a reason to avoid sex.
That is just crazy! Sister, pouting just before bedtime is not romantic at all. Do you know what he is saying when he looks at your “long face”? Well, you know it but let me tell you. He says to himself, “Here we go again!” Brush it all of and learn to let go and to wisely pick your fights.
Asking him to remember what outfit she was wearing last weekend. Continue reading The most annoying things a wife does to her husband
Talking on the phone with the person his wife is not getting along with; not only talking but laughing and enjoying the conversation while his wife sits next to him.
Irritating! Bro, why do you even answer the phone? Call them later when you are outside the house.
Telling his wife “to chill” while the house is a mess. Continue reading The most annoying things a husband does to his wife and the solutions
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
