Throwback Thursday: Even Though I Walk Through the Valley

Even Though I Walk Through the Valley-originally posted on May 23, 2013 Psalms 23:1-4:  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Even Though I Walk Through the Valley

Reblog Friday: Countering Culture

I know it is Reblog Friday, but I have been bad this week and haven’t had much time to visit other sites.  So, I will do a modified “reblog” and share an excerpt out of David Platt’s Counter Culture that has been on my mind for a few weeks now as the ISIS issues intensify, the whole Iran debacle takes us further from God’s protection … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Countering Culture

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

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

What Does Your Marriage say about Christ?

I have been married for 18 years, and let me just say that I never considered how my relationship does or does not reflect Christ or the gospel.  I think too often I bank on the fact that just staying married in today’s society is enough to show my faith.  But really, is just staying married enough? Is this really what God had in mind … Continue reading What Does Your Marriage say about Christ?

Reblog Friday: Darkness to Light by Amie Cooper

It is Reblog Friday.  Today I would like to share a post from an old friend regarding sexual abuse and the Duggar Family posted on Blog Spot.  I know I normally stay away from controversial topics; okay, that is a lie; I love to take on controversial subjects.  Why?  Well, God helped me realize that not speaking is actually speaking. In David Platt’s book Counter … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Darkness to Light by Amie Cooper
