Commitment in Marriage (Session 3)

Session Three: Commitment in Marriage Many marriages were destined for trouble from the utterance of the words “I do.” When they publicly declared, “I do”, they really didn’t understand what they were committing to. They had no comprehension of what true commitment was. They entered marriage knowing that divorce was a viable option in their pursuit of self-fulfillment and happiness, or they naively thought that it could never happen to them.

"Can These Stones Be Brought Back to Life?": The Story of Nehemiah

“What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble—burned as they are?” (Nehemiah 4:2b) Have you ever had one of those projects you had great hopes for, but inevitably, it kept discouraging you, and you finally gave up and placed it in the "Could have been/Had so much potential pile?" But, in the back of your mind, you still had a little mustard seed of hope for it. You thought, "Who knows, maybe one day, I will get back to the project. Maybe, it could eventually be good and somebody else could be blessed by it." That's what this blog is about; it's about th
