My personal life
I have been feeling this pull lately to change my life to be more appropriate for a follower of the Lord and have been browsing the bible. One verse I came along is 1 Timothy 2:9. "In like manner also, that the woman adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing." I have very long hair and find that braiding my hair is convenient and helpful in doing daily activities and work. Is this wrong? or is it more on fancy braids that are meant to be showy? I don't wear gold, pearls, jewelry, or costly clothing. I'm not braiding my hair to be pretty, just being practical. Another thing that has been bothering me is my personal relationship. My boyfriend and I have been together for 4.5 years, have two children and live together in every way possible. We are married in everyway but having the government legalize it. Is this a problem? We live together, share our money, share responsibility of the kids, we both work but me only part time so I stay home with the kids most of the time. He provides for us almost completely; he could if I didn't work. I choose to work to make it a little easier on him and give me a little time away from the family. I only work 3 days a week and that is when the kids go to see grandma. So what do you think about a simply braid and my relationship
for those who are married
By Jordan Kurecki
I have some questions requests for you.
1. How did God bring you and your spouse together?
2. Did you have any doubts about whether or not it was God's will for you to marry your spouse?
3. What advice can you give to a young man like myself who is seeking to find the right spouse?
4. add anything else you feel relevant.
Doomed To Be Single?
By That Guy
Hello, I'm new here. Literally 10 minutes new. I'll just jump right into the reason I signed up, and decided to post. I'm hoping there's hope for guys like me. I got married before I was saved, and divorced before I was saved, and that was 17 or 18 years ago. I'm older, but by no means old (40), and have a lot of life left in me if The Lord permits me to live a long life, or doesn't come back first. Everything I've seen says I cannot remarry, and since my original wife was unsaved, and is now remarried there's no hope of reconcilliation.
Some Christians do go on to marry again regardless, but it doesn't look like that's something that God's going to permit. Feeling pretty hopeless about life. What's a guy to do? Any thoughts? Did I just mess up, and that's the end of that?
My Parents Might Be Getting Divorced..
By Nick S
I've actually been raised a Southern Baptist but I hope you don't mind me posting here.
I've just found out that my parents might be getting a divorce, my father doesn't abuse my mother and hasn't cheated on her, though he has shown physical violence toward other members of my family.
I have no idea what to think - My dad is away on business and I don't even know if he's coming home again or not. If you could please send your prayers to my mom and dad I would really appreciate it, that they might find a way to reconcile their differences and work together to fix their marriage.
I'm so confused and don't know what to think about any of this. Sorry for the rambling.
Many thanks, and God bless,
Bible Study, Anyone? On Being A Godly Husband
By Pastor Scott Markle
This thread discussion is an attempt to have a forum "Bible study" concerning that which the Lord our God desires and requires to be a godly husband.
The following question is the primary topic for this "Bible study" discussion:
According to God's Word, what all does the the Lord our God desire and require of the husband that he might be a godly husband in his relationship with his wife?
Now, since this is intended to be a "Bible study" discussion, I would request that Biblical support be provided with each answer that is given.
I pray that this "Bible study" discussion will truly move us as husbands to pursue that which the Lord our God Himself desire and requires of us in our marriage relationships.
(Note: In relation to the primary question of this "Bible study" discussion, I myself have presented a list of twelve Biblical requirements for the husband in two chapters of my book, "God's Wisdom for Marriage & The Home." Those two chapters are entitle "Cleaving unto Thy Wife" (Part 1) & (Part 2).)
What then does God's own Word teach us concerning this matter?
