Sorrow on the Sea

Sorrow on the Sea

Written By Charles Spurgeon Little know we what sorrow may be upon the sea at this moment. We are safe in our quiet chamber, but far away on the salt sea the hurricane may be cruelly seeking for the lives of men. Hear how the death fiends howl among the cordage; how every timber starts as the waves beat like battering rams upon the vessel! God help you, poor drenched and wearied ones! My prayer goes up to the great…

Married to Angry Men

Married to Angry Men

The road that we walk as believers is narrow and it’s not easy. Everyone goes through trials and sufferings, but as believers in Christ Jesus, we don’t run from them and try to numb ourselves as those on the broad path are prone to do. Debi Pearl added a great chapter to her book Created to Be His Help Meet for women who are married to very difficult and angry men. I want to post a few meaningful paragraphs from…

Living a Mundane Life

Living a Mundane Life

Yes, this was me forty years ago on my nineteenth birthday. I was celebrating it with my friends from Westmont College. At this point in my life, I had no aspirations to be a career woman, rich, or famous. I had lived a relatively mundane life and dreamed of continuing to live one by being a wife, mother, and homemaker, if the Lord blessed me with a husband. I grew up in a relatively stable home with a mother and…

Switch Submission to Respect?

Switch Submission to Respect?

One woman’s husband read a post about submission that she had written and responded this way to her: “I think the word submit is outdated, respect is a much better alternative.”  A very wise woman responded: “Here’s the thing, ladies (and this is coming from someone who is NOT in a Christian marriage, and has lived a life of submission for the past ten years of our 22 year marriage – I’m 51), we can’t pick and choose and substitute…
