At some point we have all made these wonderful plans of where we’d all be in ten years post high school or college. And, it’s only proven unsuccessful, as we often look at where we are now and realize that our lives are nothing as we had planned so many years ago. For me — and maybe your dreams were similar — I imagined being married with children, living in a huge house etc. with a...

The manufacturer of a product knows the purpose of the product and has written the manual for the consumer to also understand its purpose and various functions.  Some people are patient to read the full manual before usage, but many hardly read the manual in its entirety. God our creator knows our purpose and everything that we need to excel in life is in the Bible. The word of God helps us to define our...

Whether you’re in your 20s or 30s (or 40s, or 50s …), the concept of marriage is all around you and staring you right in the face. But there are some very important keys that we need to be mindful of when on the brink of, frankly, the most important decision you’ll ever make outside of your commitment to Jesus Christ. And rather than take you through all of the things you “should look for”...

What now? I thought to myself one morning as I looked at my festive Christmas tree and New Year’s party hat. A weird feeling came over me. It was like the highlight of my year was now behind me and the next thing I could look forward to was MLK Day — my next day off work.  But, it’s official. The new year is in full swing, and flying already. How many of you have...

We’re not going to dance around the subject with this one, men of God. Purity is hard. But here’s the good news: It’s not impossible. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you — and, yep, that includes maintaining your purity. The thing about it is that the church often drives home the ideal that women are to remain pure. But why are we getting off the hook? Are we not held to...

One of the challenges that a single woman of God faces is her wait to be pursued.  The Bible is clear in that it says, “He that finds a wife, finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). We know what you’re thinking … if another person says that “he that findeth” scripture one more time I’m gonna find a good list of reasons to quit this whole “waiting” thing. Considering the perceived...

Dating is one of the most popular ways that couples connect to get to know each other. The typical first date usually includes dinner at a special restaurant with the gentleman picking up the tab. From the moment the couple takes their seats, they get to observe someone that they’re getting to know while they chat and chew. If the chemistry is there, the evening can be an amazing first date together, as the conversation...

You are probably familiar with those infamous questions like, “When are you going to get married?” and “Why aren’t you married yet?” and “When are you going to have kids?” There are tons of other similar questions and statements launched at singles by family, friends, and even strangers. According to society, marriage is the typical idea of the “American Dream”. To attain this “American Dream,” many of us are led to believe that one should graduate from high school,...

What is stillness? Stillness is defined as the absence of movement or sound. Have you ever heard someone say, “It’s too quiet”? We all know what quiet is… but what exactly is “too quiet”? We’ve become so accustomed to continuous sound and constant movement that seemingly, we’ve become afraid of stillness. Our minds have been subconsciously programmed to assume that things are out of order or that something may be wrong if everything is at...

How many of us know the story of Jesus being born to the virgin Mary? If you grew up in church, you probably enacted this scene many times on Sundays at the annual children’s Christmas play over the years. If you do not know the story, here it is in a nutshell: Jesus, the son of God, was placed into Mary’s womb by the Holy Spirit. Mary was a virgin and betrothed — or engaged...
