The Big Fat Elephant in the Room

Hmmm…I’m feeling like it is time for a new mini-series.  The topic on my heart is even more controversial than the last one (on marriage).  Everyone and anyone who is helping me with my blog or my writing is screaming, “No, No, No, please don’t,” but I don’t think I can help myself.  I have to do what I feel God is calling me to … Continue reading The Big Fat Elephant in the Room

Reblog Friday: But Nothing…Make the Time by Sarah Travis

Lately I have been in a funk.  God isn’t working fast enough for me, and I am getting frustrated and bored waiting on Him.  And while this time I am not running ahead of him, which is a new thing for me , I think maybe I went to the other extreme by doing a whole lot of nothing. God brought me to the following blog … Continue reading Reblog Friday: But Nothing…Make the Time by Sarah Travis

He Will Give You Your Heart’s Desires…Fact or Fiction?

Psalms 37:4 (NLT): Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. I recently got into a discussion with someone on this verse.  This person was explaining to me how scripture is not true and applicable to our lives.  In other words, God’s word doesn’t work; I’ve tried it, but I didn’t get what I wanted. Well, like most people, this person … Continue reading He Will Give You Your Heart’s Desires…Fact or Fiction?

Truth or Consequence: The Choice is Yours

Today, we will finally wrap up this mini-series on marriage.  Woo-Hoo!  I know some, maybe even most, of you are glad for this one to be ending as talking about marriage is not always fun.  But, I do pray, that this somehow reminded and inspired you to be the husband or wife God designed you to be.   Anyway, yesterday we began talking that this … Continue reading Truth or Consequence: The Choice is Yours

Tracing It Back to Adam and Eve

In these couple of weeks we have been talking marriage.  Well, rather, God’s design for marriage.  Yesterday we started to take a look at the reasons I believe God’s design for marriage is not working in today’s modern culture. Let me just clarify: There is not a problem with God’s design, there is a problem with lack of implementation of His design. The fourth reason I … Continue reading Tracing It Back to Adam and Eve

Why Is God’s Design for Marriage Not Working?

Is it possible to still have a Biblical Marriage in the world we live in today? Absolutely.  But it is something you have to work on  EVERYDAY.  The choices we make each and every day have to be purposeful and be directed away from self. I am going to be really real here…I know God’s design for marriage…..but my marriage most often times does not … Continue reading Why Is God’s Design for Marriage Not Working?

Submission…A Dirty Word in Today’s Culture

Last week we were talking about God’s design for marriage.  I stated that God’s design for marriage is for men and women (both made in the image of God) to leave their parents and be joined together in order to multiply.   Once married, men are to love their wives as Christ loves the church and be the head of their households; women are to love … Continue reading Submission…A Dirty Word in Today’s Culture

What Does It Mean to be the Head of a Household?

Yesterday, I stated my opinion that God’s design for marriage was for men and women (both made in the image of God) to leave their parents and be joined together in order to multiply.   Once married, men are to love their wives as Christ loves the church and be the head of their households; women are to love their husbands as the church loves Christ … Continue reading What Does It Mean to be the Head of a Household?

Men and Women-Equal But Not Identical

Yesterday we began to take a closer look at marriage.  Yes, it is a subject we are almost all familiar with, but are we living it?  It is my contention that we, Christians, have no right to defend God’s definition of marriage when we ourselves are not even trying to live it out ourselves. God’s design for marriage was for men and women (both made … Continue reading Men and Women-Equal But Not Identical
