Spark to Flames

Let’s take the fireplace as a case study:

You know, when you gather sticks to cook on a fireplace, for you to have a smooth cooking experience you have to continually shake off the ash from the sticks and push them further inside so that they can together give you better igniting power.

It is so with marriage too. Your marriage can get better no matter how long you have been married for or what your marriage looks like now.

This video is a replay from the webinar for married women organized by The Beautiful Branch Ministries.

You Are Being Watched

I recently watched one of the short films by Mount Zion Film ministries where the husband who was a ‘pastor’ was always abusive and treating the wife badly.

On a particular Sunday morning, this ‘pastor’ called the wife useless because she didn’t prepare him breakfast before leaving the house for church. The wife too had her replies for him while trying to tie her headgear. Just after the woman had finished tying the “gele” beautifully on her head, the husband lost control and pulled off the gele from her head. And of course like you might have expected, the wife lost control and started abusing and calling the man names too.

The part that got me reeling with laughter was when the ‘pastor’ told his wife not to grieve the Holy Spirit in him.

Haba… “Which Holy Spirit was he talking about?” was what came to mind after laughing at the woman’s reply.

She had said that the man should have noticed that the church members were always slumbering (with special emphasis on slumbering) while he preached. Thereby telling him about how he carried no fire as a man of God. (Ouch)

Don’t mind me; I kinda like narratives…

All this continued with their young daughter in the back seat watching their uncensored drama.

While still on their fight, the pastor sighted a church member at the next junction.

The pastor asked the woman to quickly retie her gele while she eyed him in displeasure.

The young man was greeted with a very broad smile by the pastor. And then he excitedly said something that sounded really ridiculous to me, “Hop into the vehicle of salvation”. (Ha)

Well, the brother ‘hopped’ in and the pastor asked him for permission to help his wife tie her gele. He pretended to be helping the woman out but was actually giving her knocks on her head as often as he could while he kept the brother’s gaze tied to his smiling face.

. . . Then he did the worst by comparing himself with Jesus who had washed His disciples feet.

When he was done with his ‘excellent service’, they continued their journey to church.

The next absurd thing he did was to give the brother an unsolicited advice of finding a wife. He however did not miss the opportunity to call his wife useless again by adding clause that the brother must bring his fiancee to him for cross examination since there were lots of fake sisters out in the world in this age.

On their way to church, the brother complained about the atmosphere of the car was hot. The pastor on the other hand claimed the AC was on. (“O what a spiritually sensitive brother that is”, I said to myself).

While they were still on that, the conversation between the pastor and his wife was being replayed to them in the car from the very beginning.

. . .The child had been recording their conversation all the while.

The husband and wife covered their faces in shame while the brother insisted on alighting from the car immediately.

Hello there!

God is recording all the evil and insulting words you speak to your wife

All the times you broke her spirit instead of being there to lift it up

All the number of times you have slapped and punched her and still held her hands while you walked into church.

He sees your hypocrisy. . .

And you sister and wife, God is watching you in 8D. He sees every way you verbally abuse your husband in private and then come to praise him on social media.

You can’t deceive God even if you keep deceiving people around you.

Repent of your evil ways and submit to God in your marriage.

And be careful my single friends. . .

The fact that everyone calls that brother “Pastor” or the sister “Mama” doesn’t necessarily make them saints after all.

Don’t be carried away by that charade.

May God help us build godly homes; safe havens for us and people around us!

Relationships On Purpose

People get married for so many reasons and when the reasons of both partners do not synchronize there is bound to be problems in that kind of relationship.

Planning to get married? Great!

Don’t stop there though.

Plan to stay married.

Knowing why you are getting married in the first instance will help you achieve the aim of staying happily married.

I have been so keen on this purpose issue for several years now. After having read a number of books on the importance of knowing the purpose of your existence and things you want to embark on back then, the issue of purpose discovery has been something I take very seriously.

And I believe you should too.

You must know the purpose of marriage and then balance it up by marrying someone who also knows very well the purpose of marriage.

If someone who wants to stay married marries someone who does not want to, there will be a catastrophe.

What am I saying to you in essence?

Make sure you pursue purpose above every other thing.

. . .and make sure to marry someone who is ready to pursue a like passion.

Can two walk together except they agree? I guess you must know the answer.

This does not apply only to marriage relationships but all relationships for that matter.

Invest your time in building purposeful relationships ONLY.

Doing otherwise is a complete waste of your precious time.

Be guided.

Be Responsible

Be responsible

“Wow. Congratulations! You are now a responsible man.”

How many times exactly have I heard that statement being made to a newly married person especially the men?

I have definitely lost count.

Excuse me. . .

What does it even mean to be responsible?

Does it then mean that a single person cannot or should not be responsible?

Here’s what I think:

If you are not responsible before marriage, you just might remain as such for a long time after you are married.

The anointing for responsibility will not just pour on you on your wedding day.

You have to take responsibility for your life every day starting from when you are a boy or girl and then continue to be responsible when you become a man/woman.

This begins with the knowledge of who you are and why you are here on earth.

It is called purpose discovery.

The height of irresponsibility is not taking charge of your life like you should. Living by chance instead of living intentionally is what I call it.

And how can you take charge of something you don’t even know? Seek to discover God’s purpose for your life today.

Stop making excuses for mediocrity and failure. Stop refusing to take responsibility for your wrongdoings. Stop being impulsive. Develop the virtue of self control instead. Groom yourself into being trustworthy, dependable and reliable. Learn to love yourself so that you can love others. Be open to learning the right things and the right way to live. Grow up. . .

That’s being responsible.

Hi single man/woman!

. . .Be responsible.

Your responsibility grows when you marry. It must be cultivated beforehand.

Or have you seen a farmer harvest fruits on the very same day he planted his crops?

Have a sense of direction. Be a good leader of your self on purpose way and then it will be easier to lead your wife as a good husband.

When you understand your purpose as a singe lady and already learned how to submit to your maker, you will be able to submit to His will in marriage and be a responsible wife and mother.

Be a responsible son/daughter, sister/brother, student/worker and friend first.

Don’t leave responsibility for marriage.

Hello married man/woman

. . .Be responsible too.

You need to make conscious efforts towards being a responsible person. Being a husband or wife doesn’t automatically make you a responsible person.

You have to BE responsible.

That’s a call to ACTION to the single and married alike.

Take a sincere assessment of your life and rid yourself of every form of irresponsibility.

Grace be multiplied unto you!
