So this song ‘when Jesus say yes nobody can say no’ has been top on gospel music charts for a while now. The YouTube upload has been equally popular! We clearly love the beats behind this song but the lyrics do not hurt either, they are encouraging and often what we need to hear. Yet someone needs to tell Michelle Williams and Co that they need to do another rendition; one for when Jesus says no, what to do. Okay I clearly am not a songwriter as those lyrics do not rhyme but still, there is a conversation there that needs to be had. (more…)
Over the last few weeks I have posted blogs on the lessons I learnt from the book of Ruth (see->>Letting go of the perfect guy image, if in doubt of his character, run; and when you are tired of the wait). I could go on and on with this amazing story. However, this is the last post I will be making in this season over this. As I post these last observations, I am thanking God for His word; it truly is food to my soul. This story has not only encouraged me, it has renewed my faith in God, that in His time He makes ALL things beautiful. So here are the observations that tag at my heart. (more…)
So last week the events of this my dear country caused me to take a detour (see this post) from this amazing romance story of Ruth and Boaz. I am excited to be back at jotting the lessons the Lord placed in my heart as I meditated on this hot romance! The word of God is truly sharper than a double edged sword if I think this is a hot story!
Ever been in a situation where you are very sure you do not want to hear from God over a specific circumstance in your life? Today I was. I did not want to hear from God on anything concerning my desire to get married. I felt too weary to ask for direction regarding this and felt we had spent enough time on the subject. However, I have learnt God has a sense of humor.
I have heard it said that God does not really care who your spouse is. You pick one and God just gives you a thumbs up whichever one you select. It has worked for some, I don’t think it would work for me. I am of the school of thought that God is so purposeful and specific that he knows the spouse who will work for me and if I allow him to intervene he will point out the specific one that is best for me. Kind of in the same way he chose a King for Israel in 1 Samuel 16.
Let me start by saying that I do not trust my own ability to choose. I am too human to look at the right things. I would be too focused on his height, complexion, education, job etc… I prefer to let God analyse a man because God see’s…

I have always wondered how a woman agrees to follow a man she has only just met for the rest of her life. What makes her say yes to his proposal? Why would she be willing to go with him? A godly woman does not follow the man because of his material wealth or his hot body (nothing wrong with having those, I might add). A godly woman knows that the steps of the righteous are ordered of the Lord. She therefore looks to Christ to lead her to the right man, the man ordained for her by the Lord.
Genesis 24 is the story of a God ordained marriage. In vs 14 AMP, when Eliezer is praying he says, “…let her be the one whom you have selected and appointed and indicated for your servant Isaac [to be a wife to him]” Yours is there. Ask God to show…
