How To Get Your Man To Go To Church?

A question that I have heard or have been asked many times, Why are there so few men in church?Why won't they go or why do some men prefer watching a football or basketball game then being in the house of God? I have also heard may women say that's its hard or extremely difficult to get their man to come to church with them. I kind of find that some what amusing and I smile when I hear women make that statement. The question I have to most women is," Do you underestimate your abilities or your man or spouses desire for you? Or do you realize how much power you have in your relationship? For those women who may question what I just wrote, I would like for you to take the time to read and think and think about what I just wrote. Call this journal mind food or food for thought. The first thing I want women to realize is that each of you, are men greatest weakness, as well as men's greatest strengths and most women( if they put their minds to it) can convince the strongest man to do what ever they want.

From the beginning of time women have convinced men to do things they normally wouldn't have done under any circumstances.(Adam, Eve and the tree of Life) Both men and women are forever linked , because when God put Adam to sleep, then took his rib and created Eve. From that very moment men were weakened because of what God took from man. Another thing women must realize is if you are able to convince your man or spouse to do simple worldly things, like buying a home or purchase an automobile,then it should be easy to make him go to church. One of the oldest sayings I have heard is, If you can convince a man to part with his money, then you have more than his heart. You also have his mind, therefore you have all of him. If you really want your man to go to church with you, try using your powers of persuasion to get him there, just as you would for anything else. Make going to church yours and your spouses top priority, instead of the worldly things. Because without God there is no way either of you could posses the material pleasures that you both share or enjoy today. Besides that God blesses a marriage and is given glory when both hear his word. A family that prays together, stays together and a family that serves the Lord together will receive the full blessings of the Lord. So stop believing that you can not get your man to come church, don't give up or in and practice a little faith. Because in Gods own words, "You can do all things through Christ". How to get your man to church? Start off by buying him the best gift known to man, a bible and that will be a small but simple step to get your man to church.
Have a blessed weekend,
Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerned of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God Has Ordered My Steps

Monday is a day that most people hate to see and I always wondered why. Is it because as they would say, Its blue Monday or is it because if anything bad is going to happen it will be on Monday. Why are Mondays traditionally bad? Well it seems this day out of the six other days  is when trouble begins. Monday is the beginning of a new week and I think the devil figures he should get an early start on wreaking people lives and causing confusion on this day. But to me Monday, is beautiful and wonderful. Why you may ask?Well it reminds me of the many victories I have won on Gods behalf. I figure if I can get through a day, a week and maybe another year, then I know that I can get through any storm , trail or tribulation, that the devil  has puts in my path. With God our Father by my side and his son Jesus watching over me there is nothing that can get in my way.I know in my heart that God will take care of me.
 Has it always been this way for me or have I always been so confident or brave? Well the answer to those questions is no. I have not always been so strong or faithful. I have had doubt and I have question God our Father, Why must I go through these, trails, tribulations, test, confusion, mess and struggles? I have also asked God, Why are people so mean, hateful, destructive, heartless and cruel. I have also asked him, Why do some  good people have to die and why do most bad or some evil people always seem to prosper? Then I have asked  God this very personnel questions,Why is it that the  people I love and  trust the most are the very ones causing me this pain?
 Answers to those questions have been revealed to me in very different ways. Some have been revealed to me through the Bible, others through sermons from my Pastor, then some were answered by my wise parents or friends. But the main questions were answered by God himself. It was explain to in a dream that most of my problems, bad situations ,troubles or pains were not because of anyone else and also it was because I did not listen to him. I did not heed God warnings and I did not walk into those open doors that he provided me with. I let  fear or doubt keep me from escaping my troubles and I also let them keep me from being blessed. Instead of listening to God I chose to instead listen to man. When I should have just trusted God, then walked by faith and not by sight. That way I would have been blessed sooner, rather than latter. It was all my fault and now that I know the reason why ,I have changed .I learn from those storms,trials and tribulations.  Also by God allowing me to go through those things have only made me stronger.Now when the next  storm  heads my way, I do not fear it, because I know that I can get through it some how! I fear Mondays no more, even relish them and  then look forward to them. I am grateful for my bad situations because I know they only  make me stronger and have me better prepared for the future. I also know that going through them, I can learn how to avoid new ones and also I can help others avoid them too. I can give advice to my children, friend's or family, then become a blessing to them and others. I realized that without God, I wouldn't have been able to make it  through those storms. I also realize that, if  had just listen and practice a little faith those storms that  I went through, could have been avoided. Some storms that people go through is just another step or chapter in a person life. If you happen to be blessed enough to read this journal, just know this that God has ordered your steps and its already written or done.
Have a wonderful Monday,
2 Corinthians 1:24
Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.

Romans 11:20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear;
