DANGEROUS VENTURES

Psalm 107:23-30 OTHERS went out on the SEA IN SHIPS; they were merchants on the mighty waters, They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep. For he spoke and stirred up a TEMPEST that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in the peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at THEIR WITS’ END. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. THEY WERE GLAD WHEN IT GREW CALM AND HE GUIDED THEM INTO THEIR DESIRED HAVEN.

We all go through times and phases in our lives when we have to VENTURE into something in order to accomplish or reach a DESIRED END. And while this is true in every area of our lives, there are ventures whereby before we set out to accomplish, we need to carefully sit down and calculated the risks against the gains and weigh out the scales appropriately. That’s what all business people do. But, I am not talking about business…but rather about life – YOUR LIFE!

How often do you sit down and calculate before you set out to reach your desired end? Some of us do, but for most, we set out with our Continue reading

A NAGGING WIFE?

Proverbs 21:9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a QUARRELSOME WIFE.

Proverbs 27:15-16 A QUARRELSOME WIFE is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil in the hand.

A quarrelsome wife? OR in other words…A NAGGER!

Nag means to scold or annoy CONSTANTLY; to be a CONSTANT source of discomfort or worry; a person, especially a woman, who nags.

Before I start, I need to say this. Do I scold or annoy my husband? That is if you would like to know. YES, I DO!!! But with this difference, I don’t nag him CONSTANTLY. Why, because…I might end up losing him for good.

Here is an example…a personal witness. There are a couple I know, unmarried but living together with three little children. The lady, I can say is an acquaintance. So, one day I ask her why they don’t want to get married and her answers are vague and evasive. It so happens that her partner comes home and as he joins in the conversation, I ask him the same question. Continue reading

SO IT WAS THOUGHT

Luke 3:23 Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, SO IT WAS THOUGHT, of Joseph,

SO IT WAS THOUGHT is an expression meaning assumption of something as true based on some facts.

Have you ever wondered why God specifically chose to sent Jesus on earth at the time He did and not any other? Do you ever imagine what would happen if Jesus was born in our time?

Just picture Jesus in our time claiming that He has no earthly father but that his father lives somewhere behind the clouds. Oh, I see the scientists called to task to examine the DNA of this ‘SO CALLED SON OF GOD.’ And I see the perplexion in their research as they try to put together this mysterious DNA sample. But I also see something more terrifying. Continue reading
