Accusations fly about the real reason church attendance is increasing. In her mind it is not about Christ, but about women. She is not convinced that the Lord is able to make her husband desire church this much. There must … Continue reading

A man just confessed to me that he is in love with someone who has turned his world upside down. This woman that he saw from a distance would soon become his wife. He knew from the moment his eye lids lifted that the vision before him was so stunning and so magnificent his lips began to quiver. I am telling you this woman reminded him of Eve in the garden, Samson’s Delilah, Abraham’s old attractive wife, and Jacob’s Rachel. If you recall Jacob within the pages of scripture he loved Rachel at first sight. This woman was equipped with all the bells and whistles of a 7 series BMW. She was in all practical terms the perfect woman. This man mutters some words only a gifted linguist can recognize and she still says yes to whatever he just said. Exchanging the proverbial number and parting ways this man overjoyed by the encounter goes to the mall to update his clothing.
Who would have guessed that the mall he chose and the time in which to go, this Rachel like woman would also be there too. It just so happens, they both were looking to update their clothing. He confronts her again and they chat a little and then they part again, only this time a date is confirmed at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Delighted to make reservations and to plan a wonderful evening of getting to know his better half, nothing could be so perfect, so grand and spectacular.
So the dinner date is arranged and this man and his perfect woman are out on a date. Shortly into the date this man finds out this woman does not believe in God. He knows that the Bible says that a man or woman should not be unequally yoked, but he reminds himself that she is perfect the way she is. A little disturbed by this because he is Christian, he decides to continue the relationship, because what would Jesus do? Get her saved. Right?
They have been dating for six months now and he is ready to marry her. She is not saved and his attempts to present Christ were met with let’s agree to disagree. This man finds himself at the decision point when purchasing the ring, but he keeps recalling those light brown eyes and those perfect bells and whistles.
So he plunges in and they get married and the honeymoon could not be better. They stayed at their beautiful home, because the wedding was so expensive there was no money left over for a trip to Europe or the Bahamas.
The fire of passion fades and the flames are dialed down and this man gets more zealous about his relationship with Jesus. His wife is not pleased with his time at church, as she does not attend, due to the fact she does not believe in God. Then something happens…
Please comment – should they have gotten married? If no or yes please answer why?

Nothing I believe is more moving then tears in the springtime. Your life is smoothly sailing along and you can feel the spring breeze across your face and the green grass under your toes, the birds are singing your song in a wonderful chorus with the dragonflies. You notice families as they bike ride and children playing tag in the streets. The sun is out and all appears well and the season you find yourself in is good. Most love the springtime as it represents new birth and the dawning of a new season of life and richness. You take away the spring and all that is left is death and famine, but there can still be tears in the springtime.
You find out that your friend has a horrible cancer. Your mother has lost her toes due to diabetes and your Aunt is in a coma. All these things happen in the springtime. The sun is shining the plants are growing and everything else is well, but pain from sudden tragic events begin to eat the joy out of your life and though your living in the springtime, you’re experiencing tears. Tears generated by the pain and agony of loss and frustration. There is only one solution when you have tears in the springtime and that is to wait.
Somebody said, there are only four seasons, but I say there are at least 16. Four seasons within each season of summer, fall, winter and spring. You may be old and chronologically speaking in the winter of your life, the door of death is nearer then when you were fifthteen, but may enjoy the sweetness of grandchildren that makes the winter season a time of spring. You may be in the fall of life when things begin to dry up and you begin to notice the early nightfall, but you also graduate this fall from your university and enter the springtime. The season of life you find yourself will constantly change within the season. Enjoy the springtime, but consider there may be tears. Don’t dread the wintertime we all need rest and you may have springtime within the winter. All things happen to all and there is a season to every purpose.
