Wanted: A Husband

Need a Husband?
But What Kind of Husband?
The Bible says, "He that finds a wife finds a good thing" (Proverbs 18:22). But does that mean you can't find that good man in the process of you waiting to be found? After all, how do you expect to be found unless you make yourself available. And how do you make yourself available? That's a very good question and one that many have mistaken it's meaning. It just means prepare yourself to be found. Are you in the presence of God? Are you consistent in your walk with God? Preparing yourself is very important to you being found by your purpose partner. That one God has purposed for you to be with. If you are not preparing yourself both naturally and spiritually, then don't expect God to release your husband to find you.
When a Christian woman is looking for, or should I say, desiring to have a husband, the most important of all, she should do her best to seek a man "after God's own heart (Acts 13:22 And when he ha…

Life IS hard!

Life IS hard!: Is It?
I understand that life is harder for some than it is for others. But we live in an imperfect world, and in fact, we are imperfect beings. 
People have allowed disasters, accidents, heartaches, illness, and loss to overwhelm them to the point of checking themselves out of life altogether. I can relate to a point, because back in 1984 I was one of those that wanted to check myself out of life earlier than purposed. The reason I know that it was not purposed is because I am still here. 
I felt that my life was spiraling out of control all because I did not understand not being loved when I was raised in a very loving household. Being rejected from a person that you thought loved you is a very real traumatic ordeal to comprehend when you’re young. I say young because I was in my early twenties with a baby on the way. 
I can understand how one feels when their heart has been stomped on by another human being. And I don’t take the hurt and bruised emotions lightly when I h…

Sex Gone Bad Pt. 2

Sex Gone Bad Pt. 2
What are some of your thoughts on sexual immorality? I had a woman post on one of my pages “Sex is good. You should have a lot of sex married or not.” That of course is the opinion of one not understanding what the word of God declares is not acceptable when it comes to marriage and sex. Let me share a few common objections (misconceptions), I found to God’s commands against sexual immorality:
1. It’s not wrong if we love each other. The Bible makes no distinction between “loving” and “unloving” sexual relations. The only biblical distinction is between married and unmarried people. Sex within marriage is blessed (Genesis 1:28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”); sex outside of marriage is “fornication” or “sexual immorality” (1 Corinthians 7:2–5 “Nevertheless, because of sexual immora…

Sex Gone Wild!

Sex Gone Wild! When Sex Goes Bad.
Sexual Immorality. I still find it amazing that when my Podcast show has the word sex in it that the ratings go through the roof. Society is so interested in anything that relates to sex. Even in the church, people are just curious about it and want to know more. That’s why there are so many undercover sex addicts in the church.
We find in studying the New Testament, the word most often translated is porneia it means “sexual immorality.”  Porneia is also translated as “whoredom,” “fornication,” and “idolatry.” Its meaning is “a surrendering of sexual purity,” primarily used of premarital sexual relations. This Greek word Porneia is where we get the English word pornography, it’s from the concept of “selling off.” So, in actuality, sexual immorality is the “selling off” of sexual purity that involves any type of sexual expression outside the boundaries of a Biblical defined marriage relationship. Jesus addressed this in Matthew 19:4–5 He answered, “Have …
