If we were to view marriage as a house or something to be built, then it stands to reason that, at times, repairs will have to be made…which require the use of tools. In this article, I want to present to you one tool in the marriage building toolbox that I believe is extremely important but seldom is used. In 2015, I did a book launch for my first book “Got Fruit.” That launch was...

The journey to wholeness is not for the faint of heart! Just as the great poet Langston Hughes penned, let me tell you, “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair…” BUT, I never would’ve gone as far to say it had all those issues of tacks, splinters, and such going on. I knew my life wasn’t perfect or easy, but in my eyes, it was far from being labeled “hard knock.” Needless to say,...

WARNING…words of brutal honesty will follow this disclaimer. If you’re one of those people that refuses to confront the difficulties of choosing a life of faith in Jesus, this article probably isn’t for you.  If you’re someone who believes that choosing the life of a Christian is all John 10:10 abundance, without confusion and hard pressing strikes mentioned in 2 Corinthians chapter 4…brace yourself, please, because the truth is…challenges are coming. BUT… That isn’t the...

For her…a tall caramel Frappuccino with soy milk; for myself, a venti caramel macchiato. These were the Starbucks orders of my then-girlfriend (who is now my wife) and I. I thought I knew exactly what she would order there. Fast forward a few years…her order now involves almond milk, caramel drizzles, and some other quirky thingswhile mine has changed to Grande cold-brew based drinks. I joke with her as I tell her that I feel...

You’re married! Welcome to the other side of “I do”…the unchartered land that lies beyond the wedding day. The place where strengths are magnified and weaknesses are minimized…the place where dreams are realized and victories are inevitable. But WAIT!!! This is not at all what was expected — this land is FOREIGN — somehow the journey detoured on the other side of “I do.” So when did things change…what is my role… What exactly am...

“Most people don’t wait long enough on me.” –God Wow! How accurate is that sentence? We’ll admit it; A lot of us here are impatient. We hate long lines, we dread traffic, we get frustrated when God says “no,” but we really feel pained when he says “not yet!” For some reason, hearing “not yet” hurts more than hearing “no.” We think it’s because, when God says “not yet,” we know the good thing is coming,...

In the beginning stages of a relationship, we need to keep an eye out for “red flags.” We may dismiss them altogether, but they help to warn or caution us. Red flags also help us identify situations that have the potential to harm us, emotionally, mentally or physically.   However, It’s not always easy when we begin to notice these red flags appearing in our relationships … It’s much easier to rationalize them away. So...

Being a newlywed is an awesome feeling! It’s fresh, new, exciting and overflowing with love. There is an expectation of hope, optimism of change for the better, and the joy of children … … who were at the wedding cheering you on! Newlywed dreams take a completely different turn when you or your spouse have children from previous relationships or have shared children all before that beautiful trip down the aisle. In today’s society, it...

https://godlytoday.com/wp-content/uploads/introverted-1280x720.jpg

I found out why I’m still single … Apparently, you have to go outside and let people see you. I read that line on a popular meme, and it spoke to the struggle of single introverts everywhere, including myself. I affectionately refer to myself as a social introvert. I do enjoy interacting with others. Over time I have developed the skills to do this well (so well that I have a hard time convincing people that...

When everything around us seems like it’s spiraling out of control … … people often remind us of the Bible passage in which Jesus is sleeping in the storm as his disciples were, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. We know we need to focus on something during hard times, but Jesus getting some rest while things are seemingly falling apart is normally not helpful. What should catch our attention is why Jesus is...
