Point of View: MARRIAGE

"When you're gone, will I loose control?" Answer: YES!


Falling in love is the uncontrollable emotion our soul could feel. You cannot fight nor act against it. It is free. Though sometimes our emotions could confuse us. Do we really love this person? Or do we just want their company? Something that is new, someone who drives us crazy once again. But after sometime the euphoria is gone. Sometimes our feelings fall to a particular person out of desperation or pressure from family and friends only to find out in the end that we were just going with the pressure's flow.

There are many reasons as to why we fall in love with somebody, she/he might shower us the attention that we crave for a long time. Many reasons that we could think of. Things that could make us happy and feel the love. But then somehow along the line, there is something missing where you wonder what is it. No one could answer that feeling even yourself. You are happy yet still looking for an answer. If you look though yourself that's when you found out that the "feeling" have deceived us. But then it was too late or if you're lucky or wise enough to wait~ you'll discover it is just the right time. This is the reason why we should examine ourselves first before going to a next chapter of life - giving the bond forever to someone - getting married!

Getting married is not like the Hollywood stars, it is a Forever Commitment! For me there is no divorce nor separation. Besides according to  Matthew 5:31-32, "Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce. But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorce woman commits adultery". Divorce is against the law of God. Moreover, Matthew 19:6 explains marriage in a simple form, "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." Meaning marriage is a forever bond.

To summarize it altogether, when getting married the main reason should be LOVE! Carefully examine yourselves, as I've mentioned earlier feelings and social pressure deceives you. The moment you ask God to give you the Bond of Holy Matrimony, it's not only that the flesh are joined together but your souls as well. Will you stay with the same person forever no matter what the situation will lead you? If your answer is a strong YES then go ahead BUT if your answer is MAYBE ~ well, you have a soul searching ahead of you. Don't RUSH to get married! As my Mom always say, Marriage is a no return, no exchange deal. Learn to trust your soul, not with somebody else's. I think it's true. Better yet, ask for God's guidance if that person is the right one for you.

(Well, this is a reminder for myself as well). The Best of Luck to all single ladies out there! God bless.

A Prayer for my Future Husband

Lord God our Father, your Word declares that if I delight myself in You
if I enjoy and seek Your pleasure above mine
—You'll give me the desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4). 
Desiring a husband is neither evil nor selfish because marriage is honourable (Hebrews 13:4). 
At the beginning of creation, You proclaimed, 
"It is not good that man should be alone" 
and then you created Eve to be a suitable partner for Adam (Genesis 2:18). 
In the name of Jesus, I ask that You would protect the husband
—a suitable partner—
You have chosen for me. 
Because the covenant of marriage is sacred (Mark 10:9), 
I ask for a man of God. 
Please give me a husband whose love for me is only outmatched by his love for you; 
a man who will cherish me and build me up (Proverbs 31:28); 
a man who will honour me (I Peter 3:7) 
and our marriage vows; 
a man who will be a good father and provider; 
a man whom I will be attracted to physically, emotionally, and spiritually; 
a man who will love me as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5:25). 
Keep me from attaching myself to another man out of desperation. 
I will not settle for a relationship that's second best, convenient, 
or one that feeds my insecurities. 
Guard my purity and give me the patience to wait. 
And when I meet him, confirm to me that he is the one. 
Release from me the baggage of past relationships, 
and prepare me for the man You have chosen to be my husband. 
Free me from any hindrances to a healthy and Godly marriage: 
insecurities, habitual sins, selfishness, and emotional hurts. 
Dispel my unrealistic expectations that set me up for disappointment. 
I place my trust in You rather than my partner. 
In this period of waiting, I will look to You alone to be my companion 
and best friend. 
You are the one who redeems my life from the pit, 
who crowns me with love and compassion, 
who satisfies my desires with good things (Psalm 103:4-5). 
I will not be anxious, but as I present my requests to you, 
flood me with the peace that surpasses all understanding 
so my heart and my mind are guarded in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6,7). 
In this request, I commit myself to trust You and do good, 
to dwell in the land and feed on Your faithfulness. 
I commit my way to You and trust that You will bring it to pass (Psalm 37:35). 
This I ask in the Mighty Name of Jesus.

Where do you want to be? HEAVEN or hell?

This a message that is worth sharing for, our world have been corrupted by the devil's hands! Don't let him go near you! Repent! Be near JESUS! Go home to Jesus! And pray for God's salvation. 

START NOW before it's too late! This is a message from God. Believe in HIM! Exalt Him. Praise Him. 

Where do you want to be? A life full of hatred and pain that will never stop? Or a life with Jesus that is full of love, peace and joy?  Our bodies dies but our souls live forever. You choose, where would you wanna be forever?

I want to be with Jesus in Heaven for all eternity! How about you? Jesus is the way, the truth and life. He loves us and if you don't know him yet, he is waiting for you to invite Him in your heart. Whatever you've done in your life or others did to you, He accepts you as you are ~ He knows exactly who you are. In Luke 12:7 say "Why, even all the hairs on your head have been counted! Stop being afraid. You are worth more than a bunch of sparrows". He'll open His arms for you. We are His children and He wants us to be saved. I'm not writing this on my own thoughts, a holy spirit is just giving me words to type in. Unbelievable but it's true. He wants to save us and right now He is asking for you to come back to Him. Living in this world is just a piece of our life, forever life awaits and the only way to go there is Him. He said, don't seek perfection for perfection belongs to heaven not on earth. Choose the way of life, the way of truth. Love God and learn to love each other even your enemies. He sent His only son Jesus to save us. He died on the cross to pay for our sins; see, for God so love the world he sacrifices his Son Jesus because God wants us to live forever with Him in our real home, "heaven". Don't waste your time, don't wait before it's too late. Seek Jesus. Seek God our Father. Read and listen to all His words and promises. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Don't be afraid. Jesus is just a prayer away.

In Matthew 7:13-14 says “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

Luke 13:22-24 describes the narrow way, "And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?”
And He said to them, 24 
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able." 

I want to share this videos I've discovered on youtube while I was searching for answers that no one couldn't answer on the way that I wanted. Maybe God directed me to go to this videos as they just came suddenly right into my face.

I want to be a living testimony of God and right now I'm still waiting for him to instruct me on how can I deliver His message. Right now I'm writing a blog and poems about Jesus. Maybe that's how He wanted me to do.

"A Glimpse of HEAVEN"

"The torment of hell"

Where do you want to be? HEAVEN or hell?
