Tempted To Cheat On Your Partner? James 1:12-16

Tuesday, December 1, 2015
By



Are you tempted to cheat on your girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse? Are you willing to throw away a blessing? Is the lust of your flesh worth it? Many have done it and regretted it. If you go through with it, eventually your partner will find out. If they decide to stay with you after you are caught (yes you will get caught), things will NEVER be the same. In other words, if you cheat, it will be the death of the current relationship you have (even if the two of you stay together). Is it worth it? I doubt it.



The Bible tells us in James 1:12-16 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

Don’t do it my friend. You will regret it!

Don’t Let Pictures Of Happy Couples On Facebook Get You Down

Friday, October 23, 2015
By



There is no such thing as a perfect couple. I’m amazed at how much perpetrating people do on Facebook and other social media.

It’s kind of funny to see people change their status and/or post happy pics of their significant other when I know everything is not so perfect. I’ve seen men post pics of their wives only to inbox or poke someone on facebook. I see so many single women warning married men to stop inboxing them or they will let their wives and the world know about their shady behavior.

I’ve also seen many boast of their significant other yet their significant other is not boasting about them. Next thing you know, they are no longer together or the relationship is complicated.

I said all that because if you are single and haven’t met “THE ONE” and you see so many so called happy couples, it may bring you down. But don’t let it. Or you may already be married and have experienced so many problems with your relationship that the happy pics on facebook make you sad. Don’t’ let it!



Don’t believe the hype. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship.

Every relationship will be tested. One thing is for sure, nothing stays the same. There are so many ways and times that relationships are challenged. For starters, all relationships will include disagreements. All relationships get tested by things like unemployment, health issues, the addition of children, difficult in-laws, etc.

Even if things are wonderful in a relationship, life will bring its challenges. So don’t get down if you don’t have the relationship that many people pre-tend to have on social media. Just keep preparing yourself for “THE ONE” so that you’ll be better equipped to handle the inevitable issues that come with relationships.

Christian Dating: How To Detect Romance Scammers & Keep Your Money!

Saturday, August 29, 2015
By



Last year in the US alone $86 million was lost due to romance scams (where people falsely represent themselves and their emotions to trick people out of money).

Do not assume the profile picture you see on Christian dating sites is really a wholesome person. Deceivers are everywhere, and they do wear suits and ties sometimes. Countless photos of innocent people are stolen and re-used on dating sites to trick men and women out of tens of thousands of dollars.

In the video below, I show you how to detect romance scammers from their online photos. Watch it until the end, it’ll bless you and your loved ones:





Share the video.

Let’s stay safe out here.

Russell Wilson and Ciara – Christian Dating The Right Way

Tuesday, July 7, 2015
By

I was pleasantly surprised to see a Yahoo Sports story about the Seattle Seahawks’ talented and humble quarterback Russell Wilson boldly stating he and his current girlfriend Ciara are abstaining from sex.


I admire him for so many statements he made in the video below. For starters, he proudly shares his admiration of Ciara. Some of his kind words for Ciara include she’s “everything you could ever want”, “most beautiful woman in the world”, “most kind person”, and “most engaging person”. A man can never go wrong complimenting his Lady. Nice move Russell. Nice move!

Like the rest of the world, I’m really pulling for their happiness.
But more importantly, Russell has the right mindset of wanting to lead Ciara and bless her. He also understands that she is in his life to bless him as well. Wow! How refreshing in this day and time, when it seems so many people take pride in doing the next person in. Many songs and videos depict men degrading women. But Russell Wilson chooses to pump his Lady up and bring God along with him on the journey. Fantastic and refreshing!

Here is the full interview with Russell Wilson. For those who want to hear him talk about Ciara, start at the 22:17 mark:






I truly believe that relationships are more likely to succeed when God is a major part of it.

I encourage you to share it with others (especially older teens). I’ve already shared the video with my son.

For anyone who isn’t saved, I invite you to salvation through Jesus Christ by listening to these videos on salvation and the salvation prayer.

If you need prayer, call these 24 hour toll free prayer lines.

To Save Marriages, You’ve Got To Be Willing To Use Tools Like Marriage Made EZ

Tuesday, September 30, 2014
By

We somehow are surprised when certain celebrity couples split or end their marriages. But just like all the “everyday” couples and marriages, they face the same issues. The only difference is the world has more access to them.


It just seems the devil is having a field day in the area of true love and marriage. Whether you are considering marriage or are already married, we must be proactive in using the tools God gives us to perfect our relationships.

As I was browsing channels on my TV, I ran upon the Marriage Made EZ broadcast that Dr. Mike Freeman and his beautiful wife Dr. Dee Dee Freeman hosts that will bless and heal your marriage. They are very open and honest with issues they had and the biblical solutions they used that will help your marriage. Remember the Bible tells us the importance of seeking and understanding wisdom in Proverbs 4
1 Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction,
and be attentive, that you may gain insight,
2 for I give you good precepts;
do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father,
tender, the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 he taught me and said to me,
“Let your heart hold fast my words;
keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight;
do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
and whatever you get, get insight.
8 Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
she will honor you if you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head a graceful garland;
she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.”
10 Hear, my son, and accept my words,
that the years of your life may be many.
11 I have taught you the way of wisdom;
I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
12 When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
and if you run, you will not stumble.
13 Keep hold of instruction; do not let go;
guard her, for she is your life.
14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of the evil.
15 Avoid it; do not go on it;
turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong;
they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know over what they stumble.
20 My son, be attentive to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Let them not escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them,
and healing to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
24 Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
25 Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.

The Freemans also hold conferences around the nation that bless couples. For some feedback on their seminars, check out the video below:

Using Questions As Tools In Christian Dating

Monday, September 1, 2014
By

I agree with this article on using questions to land dates.

But questions can also be used to avoid heartache, scams, and deception in dating. Don’t be afraid to ask upfront for:

  • Their full name (including their middle name). Many times we think to get their first and last name. But when googling their name or even searching county databases we may end up with too much information and information that has nothing to do with the person in question. So the more you can filter your search results, the more time you have to get to know this new person.


    If they ask why you want to know, you can let them know you were just curious. Or you can tell them you wanted to know if the name they gave you was their true first name or do people refer to them by their middle name. After all, it’s not uncommon for people to go by their middle name instead of their first. It also helps when you do the smart thing and at least google them.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for their email address either. Many times when you date online, people are quick to ask you to email them. This is a tactic many scammers use. But if they don’t offer their email, you can tell them you want to send them a funny video, an inspirational message, or an article you think they’d find interesting.

    Then once you have their email, be sure to plug it into all of the major search engines to see if anything negative turns up. You can also use it to search many social media sites.

  • Also don’t be afraid to ask them if their pictures are recent. If they say “Yes”, then follow up by asking “How recent are they?”. If they say “No”, then ask them to post more recent pictures.
    Once they have shared pictures on their profile, you can then do a google image search using their pictures. You’d be surprised by the results. This is also a technique to use to catch scammers.


The point is, by asking the right questions, you can better determine if you are truly interested in getting to know this person, and it can help you detect scammers earlier in the process.

Your time is short and so is life. Don’t waste it on losers.

Walking in love,

What Is Love? How Can You Tell If Someone Loves You? Hebrews 2:9-10

Friday, March 28, 2014
By



Love is an act NOT AN EMOTION! The revelation came strongly to me yesterday. So simple yet very powerful. There is no greater act of love than that of Father God and Jesus. Father God promised our salvation via prophets. Not ony did He say it, He and Jesus delivered on His word! That’s very important! Hebrews 2:9-10 “9 But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.” What an act of sacrifice and love! What a way to honor God’s word. Jesus didn’t save a few of us. He saved us all!


Thank you Father God and Jesus! I love them so much! Yes, emotion is a “symptom” or “evidence” of my love for them. But the real proof are my actions. Today, let’s be love (an action). Let’s lift up those God trusts us to encourage by allowing our paths to cross. Let’s not just talk about it, let’s be about it. Let’s do something and not just say something! I’m walking in love. For more on What is Love? Check out this.

Have a blessed and God-like kind of day!
