13.7.14 – God’s View Of Marriage – Peter Cheyne

God loves marriage… do right by YOUR spouse

M.P.C. Sermons

This is a very difficult subject. For one thing it is controversial. For another, there can be a huge amount of emotion and pain bound up in it. There are few things more painful and more damaging than the break-up of a marriage. There is the pain of rejection; the hurt of perhaps having been treated badly; and maybe guilt and regrets. That pain might well be made worse by then being treated as a second-class citizen by other Christians. And yet, Christians want to uphold the sanctity of marriage and not be too comfortable with divorce. It is a tight-rope.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew records only 2 verses of Jesus’ words on this topic but there is fuller teaching in chapter 19. READ Matt 19:3-12

What Becomes Of A Broken Heart: Chapter 1- A Black Rose Nightmare

Great writings

“Hey girlie! How was your day?” My roommate asked as I walked into the kitchen.

TRANSITION (Unpretty >>>>> BEAUTIFUL)

All my life I had a terrible complex about my looks, and the craziness inside my head had me doing all kinds of obnoxious things just to become as popular as my peers. I hated going to school each day, because I got teased constantly, which made me fight nearly everyday, and that violent mindset grew on me; following me not only into my adolescent years, but also into adulthood as well… SMH. Sad case though, is the fact that I still struggle with thoughts of being unattractive, and the stigmatism causes me to be more secluded and isolated. In a nutshell, I blame the way I feel about myself on the adversary. It’s his job to “Kill, Steal and Destroy,” and that’s exactly what he attempts to do to my mind.

However…

This is what God is daily showing me about myself… In spite of all I’ve been through… No matter what the mirror reveals… I AM BEAUTIFUL, inside and out!!! God looks at the heart, NOT the outer appearance. So, from this day forward… My confidence EXPLODES, and I’m determined to walk with my head held high DECLARING & PROCLAIMING this chick is indeed Beautiful… Neither Bipolar nor Lucifer can convince me otherwise… And, likewise for any of you who suffer with feelings of inadequacy in ANY arena of life… Bookmark this post and hold it dear to your heart… Now, BE HAPPY…
