When did this silliness of “Black Friday” become a national holiday? Can’t we get a respite even from a Christian site? Enough already!
Black Friday was drummed up by the media. They’ve been doing it every year and the retail stores have been going along with it, although recently around where I am, a few stores (at least one anyway that I know of for sure) are deciding to have nothing to do with it, deciding to not be open that day.
Wow, praying for only 3 years, and as a teenagers, and he gets his wife. It was too painful to continue listening.
I’m in my 40s. I’m still praying for a husband. It’s never going to happen for me. I won’t ever have children.
I just wish I knew why. Why God has left me to always be alone, grow old alone, and eventually die alone.
We should rejoice at others fortune. I wish it were always the case for everyone. It doesn’t always happen that way. I’m nearly 60, have never married, and it doesn’t look like I will ever have children. I say, pray when you are young, and pursue it early.
Mo and Ray, I’m so sorry to hear about your extended (and undesired singleness)! I pray that our Father will bring you everything you need to lead a full and rich life before Him and that He will work in your hearts to make you more and more like His Son. I can’t relate to the loneliness, but our Savior can, and He will never let you down.
Mo, meet Ray.
Ray, meet Mo.
Do either of you belong to a church near you? If I was wanting to meet someone who thought like I did I’d be attending regularly!
Just like Dr. Brown said that he did not get pre-tribulation rapture from reading the Bible but from people that had to explain their system…the same is true of not keeping YHWH’s Sabbath.
There is nothing from directly reading scripture that does away with the direct command of YHWH to remember to keep His Sabbath holy. Remembering to keep YHWH’s seventh day Sabbath is one of the 10 commandments and is a sign and an outward demonstration of our devotion to YHWH in exclusion of other gods. It is on the same plane as not taking YHWH’s name in vain and not having other gods before YHWH. Man’s traditions and commandments of men have made YHWH’s command of none effect and has caused us to participate in vain worship.
Mr 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Ray and Mo meet Sheila…the new matchmaker of Line of Fire’s matchmaking branch. 🙂
I am not making fun of Ray and Mo or even Sheila. Wanting a spouse and not having one can be quite difficult. It is also true that when we lay down our wants and focus on what we have, that gratefulness and generosity start to flow out from us. The focus on wanting can create a pull that others resist and pull away from. A giving and thankful heart can create an irresistible drawing toward oneself. We may end up with more friends than we know what to do with if we are not careful. And even if we never end up married, we can then have a very fulfilling life of ministry to our 100’s of friends.
Mr 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Giving up a wife for the sake of the kingdom does not have the promise of a hundred fold wives. I would think that the same goes for not getting a hundred husbands. But what we lay down at Messiah’s feet puts us in the place of much blessing if we are looking for it and ready to embrace it.
Hi Bo! Hope you’re well!
Yes, there is that promise. I would think voluntarily giving up those things for the sake of the Kingdom is what he’s talking about. But, to be lonely is not good either, for God created us to enjoy fellowship with others. Of course, fellowship is more than possible without being married, but, marriage affords a closeness not shared with others. If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t be married. It has many challenges for unequally yoked individuals, seeing as I’m dedicated and he’s not at all dedicated. It makes for a tense relationship to say the least, although, we were equal in that regard when we did marry. I was more an agnostic than he was.
To be unequally yoked is much harder than living alone.
Yes I have been attending a church near where I live and church is likely one of the best places to meet singles. If there are young people looking to meet someone, I think church is likely one of the best places to go.
There are some times I think I wished I had a wife, but most of the times I am glad to be single. Maybe someday I will find that I had that all wrong.
If I had it to do over again, I think I would want to get my life in order much younger, get straightened out spiritually earlier, then get married and raise a family.
I can’t help but think that if I had married young, what a mess I would have made of it!
I hear ya! Thanks be to God for calling me!
