How Can I change My Husband?

Early on in my marriage, my first mission as a wife was to change my husband.

Yeap!

I first wanted to make him love reading books, other than the books he reads for his work and the Bible. I mean, think about it. I can’t live without reading books but I married a man who lives happily ever after without reading books. So, I set out to change him, to teach him how to fall asleep reading good spiritual books.

So, I read one good marriage book (I am not sure which one) and I told my husband how the author talked about husbands and how much he, my husband, could learn from the book to be a good spiritual husband. I told him a lot about the book and the author when we were about to sleep. Continue reading How Can I change My Husband?

He Won’t Propose

Some young girls get confused why their boyfriends don’t propose to them even after dating them for a year or two.

They complain, “I thought he was waiting for the Valentine’s Day but that day just passed; and I thought he would propose to me in the beginning of summer but that too passed. What should I need to do?”

I always ask:

“Why don’t you propose to him?” 🙂 Just kidding! – I wouldn’t say that in a million years! What? A woman proposing to a man? Are you serious?

Listen to what the Bible says: Continue reading He Won’t Propose

In What Name

The Westminster Larger Catechism says:
 
#181. Why are we to pray in the name of Christ?
 
“The sinfulness of man, and His distance from God by reason thereof, being so great, as that we can have no access into His presence without a mediator; and there being none in heaven or earth appointed to, or fit for, that glorious work but Christ alone, we are to pray in no other name but His only.”
Paul writes:

Unsnatchable!

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.” John 10:27-29 NIV

In one of the books I am reading, the above passage of the Bible is titled as “Unsnatchable.” So we are those of us who are in the hands of Jesus Christ. No one and nothing is strong enough to snatch us out of Jesus’ hands! Continue reading Unsnatchable!

The LORD Sustains Me

The first thing that came to my mind this morning was the fact that I was still saved, that I believe in Jesus Christ. 
 
Have you ever thought about that?
 
You go to sleep believing in Jesus Christ and when you wake up, you find yourself believing in Him again.
My friend, if you think that your brain or your will or something else than God is the one that makes you a believer every morning, you didn’t understand what the word of God is saying about your salvation, how you are indwelt by the Holy Spirit until Jesus Christ comes back.

No Better than Sieves

Why don’t we lose hope in this world?

No, seriously, this is my deep seated question: Why do we still hope that this world will somehow and someway satisfy our needs?

Is this part of “our fallenness?” It must be because I personally sometimes feel like I’ve matured enough not to think that way but I still catch myself thinking, “If I go to the mall and buy a beautiful suit or dress, I will come out of this blue feeling.” Or, “Let me go on YouTube so I can find something to watch and forget all about this life.” Continue reading No Better than Sieves
