It can be very difficult to submit(in your heart) to an authourity(non christian or christian) over you, you don’t LIKE – just because of all the things he/she stands for or his/her personality;but the scriptures have admonished us(believers of Christ) to:-
God’s love has never been or ever will be conditional. He loved you at your worst, and most Christian churches would agree with that initially. They believe you are saved by grace through faith, no matter your history, but that is often where grace stops and religion starts. And religion always puts the emphasis on the external.
I believe marriage is not about two single pieces of material sewn together; it is about thousands of threads of life-experiences from two people woven together as one. So, I waited to find the person with the right threads, the ones that were suitable for our unique marriage tapestry. The result is we are creating a beautiful history together that stems from a love that finds its roots in mutual respect.
Worrying will not change anything. Not only does worry not change anything but add unnecessary stress to our day. We must accept our value and contribution to the world. God never created an unworthy and hopeless man or woman. He created and formed each one of us with a special purpose and intent. Accept yourself because you are created in His image and likeness. You are not a mistake or an unwanted being.
As with anything else, it takes additional time and effort to go the extra mile. Believe me, when I say this strategy when applied to work, and life will pay you dividends. If you are okay with being ordinary, simply follow the path of ordinary people. But if you want to be exceptional and extraordinary, follow the examples of extraordinary people.
Always make more effort than what is expected of you to be successful.
Don’t marry someone who is stingy. There are so many expenses to cater to in marriage. A stingy guy in courtship won’t suddenly become a generous husband in marriage. Don’t marry a lady that has the financial philosophy of ‘My husband’s money is our money, but my money is my money’. Marry someone who believes in the dignity of labor, who is ready to work, not a lazy fellow who just wants to be a consumer and not a contributor. Marry someone who is ready to spend on the growth and success of the family.
“For being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, not seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.” Romans 10:3
The scripture opens our understanding to the existence of two different forms of righteousness. There is a type of Righteousness established by men and the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
For some of us, the people we thought that loved us are the people who stabbed us in the back, and the people we thought nothing good will come out of, are the people we are meeting now. When you find the gift of genuine men, don’t be embarrassed to keep that relationship, if it makes you a fool to keep it, do it.
The Holy Spirit in us brings us into fellowship with God the Father. The Holy Spirit does not build fear in us because, where the Spirit of God is, there is liberty and freedom.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba! Father!”. -Romans 8:15 (ISV)
To the surprise of the righteous, Jesus replied with the most powerful statement in this parable: ” very I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
