Having A Happy Home

Marriage is a union of two people who have vowed to remain committed to each other for the rest of their lives. That is why, during the day of their wedding, they use vows to remain together, to have children together, to grow financially together, to grow old together etc. till death do them part. This is a very important part in everyone’s life with an exception of none.
These days, many couples are divorcing at a very high rate. Have you ever asked yourself why this is happening and what should be done? Getting an appropriate answer for this question is quite difficult. The Bible says “A man who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against his wife and a woman who divorces her husband and marries another man commits adultery”. Both a man and a woman should only get divorced when they become unfaithful to each other.
One Saturday morning, I received a call from my cousin Amanda saying that she was leaving her home forever. I immediately got into my car hurriedly and went to her place. When I got there, it was all chaos, everything was destroyed her beautiful home was no more. She broke into tears when she saw me and I hugged her just for her to feel better. Her husband Greg was also around so I called him to join us. Their kids went to play with their friends in the neighborhood.
She then narrated to me what had happened and I was very shocked. They had started a fight very early in the morning at around 5am and the main issue was finances. Her husband was fired from his job and the business they had started like 4 years ago was going down in terms of money and they had to close it down. Amanda started the fight threatening Greg that there was no way she could live in a home full of problems so she wanted a divorce. I told her that there was no way he could do that, Greg was stressed out so she had to uplift his mood and help him out build themselves again. She agreed after we talked for quite some time, even Greg seemed happy with the support she agreed onto.
Right now, the lovely couple own several restaurants around Houston and with these businesses, they are able to feed the whole family. Both of them gave their life to Christ and now they know what God has done in their lives. They have become very powerful in prayers and that is why their marriage has become now strong more than ever. You may be going through what Amanda and Greg did or you may be in a worse situation than this. You need not worry for God is waiting for you to mend your marriage for if God is present in your home, you will never lack anything, if you ask for help, and He will do that. By the end of the day, you will realize that your marriage life will never be the same again, your friends may even envy your life. Just stay in the Lord and He will do the rest.

You are God's Best Friend

Most of us have a friend whom we treasure very much, a person who can help you through your time of need, a person who is by your side no matter what or a person who is always with you both in good and bad times. I am sure that it is not easy to find such a person in this world. This world is filled with hypocrites, impostors, liars and all these people live amongst us and it takes time before you even  notice that, it might take some time.

I can clearly tell you a very interesting story about my best friend Jessica. We met in junior high, I hardly knew anyone then. Our friendship started when we studied Mathematics and English together. We used to visit each other’s homes and our parents used to say that we were sisters. Our friendship grew and we became now best friends. I was happy about it because I knew at least I had someone whom I could count on.  This continued in senior high, unfortunately, as we were about to graduate, I noticed something fishy about Jessica.

She started telling on me regarding my personal issues, this went on and the whole school knew what we were going through at home with my siblings and parents. I felt bad about it and decide to terminate our friendship forever, I did this because I was not born again then. We finally graduated and went to different universities. While in campus, I attended a church service and it was the exact day I gave my life to Christ. The man of God was preaching about forgiveness saying that it is the best thing one can do. I immediately forgave Jessica, got her number through her Facebook friend and contacted her. I noticed that she had changed a lot regarding how she talked and we became friends again.

God is surely your best friend and you should build a strong relationship with him. He is your protector and guider and he is always by your side. We all know that in the Bible, Adam and Eve had a very strong friendship with God before they sinned. God always wants us to build a very intimate relationship with Him and to live for Him. Do not expect to make God your best friend by going to church once a week or praying once a day. God wants us to worship Him and to pray for His guidance and protection always.
