It was a typical day at the office. I was sitting at my desk when I overheard a comment from one coworker to the next about God. That comment turned into a full blown argument. Coworker A was demeaning God, and co worker B was defending Him. Not one to let anyone question her God, she put on her armor, ready to fight. Others passing by stopped to add their 2 cents. Me? I…
I was in my classroom one day and I was preparing myself to go to lunch when a song began to ring over my spirit. It was called “Heart Courageous.” As it was ringing in my ears I started singing the chorus: “We’re marching on with heart courageous,
we’ll follow anywhere you want us to, and should you lead us where the battle rages
It’s been said that in a marriage relationship, you never stop learning. Here are 4 Marriage Ministries that can help you get a head start to understanding the dynamics of a marriage, or if you’re already married…
Most of my life as a child was spent at a church service of some sort. Church Monday night (Bible Study), church Wednesday night (Youth Service), church Friday night( Prayer Meeting), church Saturday (Choir Rehearsal), church Sunday morning (morning service), church Sunday evening (evening service), and church Sunday night (visiting other churches). Now that I am an adult, I still manage to make more than one service throughout the week. This probably seems like a lot, and sometimes it is, but I find it necessary.
“While we are building our careers, our families, our churches, our bodies, let’s not forget to build our CHARACTER. For, good character is what sets us apart.” –
I posted this as a status on my personal Facebook page around the summer of 2012.
In the privacy of my bedroom I cried out “Overflow, Lord! Overflow, Jesus! I NEED more! So much more! Now!” I paused blowing my nose and wiping away tears. Juanita Bynum’s powerful rendition of Overflow permeated the morning air. But this time, I mouthed the words along with her, “thank you, Jesus, for your overflow; thank you for the victory in my circumstances; hallelujah, thank ya! Thank ya! Thank ya!”
There’s more to movies than mere entertainment. As a movie lover, I find myself looking beyond basic humor and a gorgeous cast to really understand the message the director wants to convey. I found these three films to be particularly insightful to relationships, especially that of a marriage. So whether you’re single, dating, or married perhaps there is something you can take from these
I found the formula for success. No really, I did! If you believe everything that the Bible says, then you will agree with me that this truth is the way to go if you want to be successful.
Looking through my mailbox one day, I saw that I received yet another promotional offer for a magazine subscription. The deal seemed reasonable so I figured I’d oblige. As I opened the mail, inside was a pamphlet with snippets of topics that each issue would contain, one of them being “What I Know for Sure.” I read on to find 6 things Ms. O knew for sure, and being the thinker that I am, it prompted me to ask myself the same question. I was stumped.
Marriage. Wedding. Matrimony. Nuptials. Union. These words often terrify even the strongest men and women. On one hand you have the privilege of spending the rest of your life (til death do you part) with the one person who loves, understands, and is willing to sacrifice for you more than anyone else.
Have you ever experienced searching for something only to find out that it was in your possession all along? Flipping things upside down, turning things inside out, trying to find what you didn’t know you already had.
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
There is a myth that “good men are hard to find” but it is definitely not true. Getting married is actually pretty easy, it’s staying married that appears to be the challenge.
Most women I know want to one day be happily wed. Young old, middle-aged; we dream about this type of stuff (guilty)!
Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
I’d like to dispel a myth. The myth that Christians are subpar human beings. The myth that we float on air day in and day out with our heads in the clouds completely oblivious to what goes on here below with the rest of you earthlings.
It’s crazy, but I’ve been doing a Bible Study with a friend about Beauty and its merits, and it amazes me at how little this topic is actually talked about in Christian literature, outside the Bible that is.
“God is able to do just what he said he will do. He’s gonna fulfill every promise to you. Don’t give up on God, ‘cause he won’t give up on you. He’s able.”
When loving God becomes a chore we have then become LOST. To love God because you’re afraid of hell and punishment is the wrong kind of LOVE.
