Revisiting Submission

I decided to revisit the topic of submission. I chose to revisit this topic because when most people especially women address this topic to their followers/friends on facebook they don't go beyond the surface.

Yes you inform women that it is in our wifely duties to be submissive. However most women are not raised with the awareness that this is the way of marital bliss. So you need to introduce this topic and also introduce everyone else in the family's duties. 
So the wife is to submit, 'Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord' (Eph 5:22). 
Now we read further that the husband has more: 'Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.' (Eph 5:25).
Paul goes further on to say Husbands are to love their wives as they love themselves (5:28).

When you give this set of scripture, not separate from each other to the woman to read, you give her hope and reason to want to submit to her husband. Because not only is this right in G…

Marriage & the People.

Marriage is an institution given to us and ordained by God. We as people consistently take vows of that institution binding ourselves to another person. And then when we have questions regarding our marriage or marriage in general, we go to people for answers. Instead we need to divert those questions to God so that we may receive divine answers.

The question of how many times you may be married is a tough question. Think about it. We read in the Bible that divorce is prohibited except cases of adultery. And I'm guessing now and days you add into that domestic abuse. However our generation is willing to divorce over anything. Oh, we don't get along or he's broke are some reasons. Then you have those same people who got divorced over something minor, go remarry and repeat the process. At what point do we tell that person, look you doing too much. You don't need a spouse, you need GOD. At what point do we sit that person down and tell them to reevaluate themselves. At wh…

True forgiveness

When a person apologizes for their behavior, how do you forgive?
Are you one of those people who say I forgive you but I won't forget what you did? If so be forewarned that you aren't truly forgiving that person. If you bring up q person's past mistakes, EVERY time you argue then please understand that you NEVER forgave them. You simply pacified the situation.
To truly forgive is to actually forget. You accept the apology & you leave the incident in the past where it belongs. You don't bring it up every chance you get and you certainly don't use it to guilt trip.
Think about forgiveness the way you want to be forgiven by God. When you repent for your sins, I'm sure you want God to forgive you & never hold it against you. I'm sure when God forgives us, He doesn't consistently bring up our past mistakes & failures afterwards. He wipes the slate clean & forgets your mistake.
That is how we as people need to forgive.
Remember Jesus said th…

My Life

I've read and heard about people's life story. And I noticed I'm not like them. I'm unique.
I came from odd beginnings, if that's even an accurate way to describe it. My father had unconventional means of providing for our family. I can never vouch for the reasons behind my father's actions. All I can say is that as a child I didn't want for anything. Then everything changed my dad went to prison when I was in 6th grade and remained there for 11 and a half years. However I'll never look ill upon my dad.

In high school, I excelled in my studies and in music. I've learned to play so many different instruments. My first instrument was a violin, I learned in 4th grade. In high school I started the clarinet, then I picked up the saxophone, trumpet, snare drums, trumpet, and piano. My mother placed me in dance school, so I was classically trained in ballet and tap for about 5 years. I love swimming and track. I actually enjoy classical and contemporary ja…

You & Life

So many women are lost in their past. Lost trying to figure out how to move on, become a better person. It's absolutely possible. It's taking the time to see your worth and to value you yourself like God values you.
Many women have these emotional bonds with these random men. And the only way to break that bond is to ask God to break it. You NEED God's help in breaking that bond because your flesh is weak to sin and will continue to have you sinning until you tell God to take control.

However know that when you ask for God's makeover, you need to surrender completely to Him. Let Him break off all the bad habits, the sinful bonds, the sinful desires, the bad fruit that has grown in you.
During this process you will notice your self esteem rise, you will notice your likes and dislikes will begin to change. You will even notice the people around you begin to change. People who are/were no good for you will leave and be replaced by people who will uplift you and keep you o…

Ideas...

Hi I've been thinking today and I came across a website that lets people set us community calls. I am thinking of starting a Live telephone bible study. It can start off as a once a week bible study and then maybe a follow up question day. Say as in the bible study on Tuesday evenings then the questions on Thursday? Give the participants a chance to soak up what was discussed. I'd like to make it where everyone who listens in can participate.

If you can, please do comment on this post to let me know if you would be interested in participating.
I'd greatly appreciate it.
