ShutterstockAny of these people could be your Non-Question Asking Friend, Double-Obligated Friend, or Historical Friend.When youa€™re a kid, or in high school, or in college, you dona€™t really work too hard onA your friend situation. For a bunch of years, youa€™re in a certain life your parents chose for you, and so are other people, and none of you have that much on your plates, so friendships inevitably form. Maybe theya€™re the right friends, maybe theya€™re not really, but you dona€™t put that much thought into any of ita€”youa€™re more of a passive observer.
Once student life ends, the people in your life start to shake themselves into more distinct tiers. And depending on who you are and how things shook out in those first 25 years, the way your particular mountain looks will vary. As time goes on, most of us tend to have fewer friends in Quadrants 2-4, because A) people mature, and B) people have more self-respect and higher standards for what theya€™ll deal with as they get older.
Possibility #2 is a pretty dark situation for your friend, but it can actually be fun for you. Wait But WhyIn almost every group of friends, therea€™s one pair whoA cana€™t ever be alone together. Another version of this is the a€?always and only ironica€? friend, who youA reallyA bum out if you ever break that social shell and say something earnest.
A third example is the a€?Youa€™re great, Ia€™m great, ugh why is everyone else so terrible and not great like usa€? friend. What these all have in common is the friend hasA tallA walls up, at least toward you, and so she builds a little skit for you two to hang out in to make sure any authentic connection can be avoided. In any case, I cana€™tA standA these interactions and am in a full panic the entire time theya€™re happening.
Think of a friend you get together with from time to time, which usually happens after a long and lackluster email or text exchange during which you justA cana€™tA find a time that works for both of youa€”and youa€™re never really happy when these plans are being made and not really psyched when you wake up and ita€™s finally on your schedule for that day. There are lopsided situations where one person is far more interested in hanging out than the other (wea€™ll get to those later), but in the case wea€™re talking about here, both parties oftenA thinkA ita€™s a lopsided situation without realizing that the other person actually feels the same waya€”thata€™s why it takes so long to schedule a time.
You might be on either side of thisa€”and either way ita€™s one of the least healthy parts of your life. If youa€™re on theA if onlyA side of things, probably the right move is to get your f---ing s--- together? Wait But WhyThroughout childhood and much of young adulthood, most people your age are in the same life stage as you are. You and the Frenemy usually go way back, have a very deep friendship, and the trouble probably started a long time ago. Therea€™s a lot of complex psychology going on in these situations that I dona€™t fully understand, but my hunch is thatA a Frenemya€™s resentment is rooted in his own pain, or his own shortcomings, or his own regreta€”and for some reason, your existence stings them in these places hard. A little less dark but no less harmful is a bully situation where a friend sees some weakness or vulnerability in you and she enjoys prodding you there either for sadistic reasons or to prop herself up. A Frenemy knows how to hurt you better than anyone because youa€™re deeply similar in some way and she knows how youa€™re wired, and shea€™ll do whatever she can to bring you down any chance she gets, often in such a subtle way ita€™s hard to see that ita€™s happening. This is a rare Tier 3 friend, or even an acquaintance, who qualifies as an odd friendship, because you found a way to make it unhealthy even though youa€™re not actually friends. One member can consistently do 90% of the listening and only 10% of the talking, and in situations where most of the talking is about life problems, whata€™s happening is a one-sided therapy situation, with a badly off-balance give-and-take ratio, and thata€™s not much of a friendshipa€”ita€™s someone using someone else. There are some obvious ways to assess the nature of a friendshipa€™s power dynamica€”does one person cut in and interrupt the other person while theya€™re talkingA far more than the other way around? Another interesting litmus test is what I call theA a€?mood determiner test.a€? This comes into play when two friends get together but theya€™re in very different moodsa€”the idea is, whose mood a€?winsa€? and determines the mood of the hangout.
In theA Does This Friendship Make Sense graph above, the friendships we just discussed are all in Quandrants 2, 3, or 4a€”i.e.
No friendship is perfect, but those in Quadrant 1 are doing what friendships are supposed to doa€”theya€™re making the lives of both partiesA better.
But in the case of most people over 25a€”at least in New Yorka€”I think A) not enough time is carved out as dedicated friend time, and B) the time that is carved out isA spread too thin, and too evenly, among the Tier 1 and Tier 2 friendships in all four quadrants. 1) Think about your friendships, figure out which ones arena€™t in Quadrant 1, and demote them down the mountain.A Ia€™m not suggesting you stop being friends with those peoplea€”you still love themA and feel loyal to them, and old friends are critical to hold ontoa€”but if the friendships arena€™t that healthy or enjoyable, they dona€™t really deserve to be in your Tier 1, and you probably shouldna€™t be in theirs. 2) Dedicate even more time to the Quadrant 1, Tier 1 rocks in your life.A If youa€™re in your mid-20s or older, your current rocks are probably the only ones youa€™ll ever have. A note about listicles: So we know a lot of people hate listicles and associate them with cheap, low-quality, traffic-driving, link-bait articles. Factor in function a€“ Will the main purpose of the room be eating, sleeping, working, entertaining, or something else entirely? Flat a€“ Flat paint is best suited for ceilings, areas where surface imperfections might be visible, and anywhere else that a muted low-reflecting surface is desired. Low-luster, satin, or eggshell a€“ Use low-luster, satin, or eggshell paint on areas where you want a sheen. Semigloss or gloss a€“ Go for semigloss for kitchens and bathrooms; choose gloss for banisters, railings, shelves, doorjambs, and windowsills. Water versus oil a€“ When selecting an interior finish, try choosing a water-based enamel instead of an oil-based gloss paint. Dona€™t cut corners on paint quality a€“ High-quality paint performs better for a longer period of time. Purchase sample sizes a€“ Paint a piece of scrap material such as cardboard, or even a portion of your wall, to see the effects of various light conditions. These are the people closest to you, those you call first when something important happens, those you love even when they suck, who make speeches at your wedding, whose best and worst sides you know through and through, and whose relationship with you is eternala€”even if you go months or years without hanging out, nothing has changed when you find yourself together again. You might grab a one-on-one drink with one of them when you move to their city, but then it surprises neither of you when five years pass and drink #2 is still yet to happen. When you hear that something bad happens to one of these people, you pretend to be sadA but you dona€™t actually care.
As time goes on, you start to realize that the 20-year frenzy of not-especially-thought-through haphazard friend-making you just did was the critical process ofA you making most of your lifelong friends. But the fact is, friendships made in the formative years often stick, whether theya€™re ideal or not, leaving most of us with a portion of our Tier 1 and Tier 2 friendships that just dona€™t make that much sense. I have a friend who Ia€™ve hung out with one-on-one about four times in the last year, and he has no idea Wait But Why exists. Ita€™s not that they dislike each othera€”they mightA get along greata€”ita€™s just that they have no individual friendship with each other whatsoever. Of course, she doesna€™t really think youa€™re perfectly great at alla€”if she were with someone else, youa€™d be one of the voodoo dolls on the table to be dissected and scoffed at.
Sometimes that person only does this out of her own social anxiety and can become a great, authentic friend if you can just stomp through the ice. When someonea€™s excited about something, they figure out how to get it into their schedulea€”when theya€™re not, they figure out ways to push it farther into the future.
But when it comes to advancing into full adulthood, people do so at widely varying paces, which leads to certain friends suddenly having totally different existences from one another. And Ia€™m not talking about the friends that will feel a little twinge of pleasure when they hear your big break didna€™t pan out after all or that your relationship is in bad shape. Of course, this is a hideous quality in many not-great couples, but ita€™s also a prominent feature of plenty of friendships. Ita€™s when the number gap gets even wider that something less healthy is going ona€”something that doesna€™t reflect very well on either party. Is one persona€™s opinion or preference just kind of understood to carry more weight than the othera€™s? If Person A is in a bad mood, Person B is in a good mood, and Person B reacts by being timid and respectful of Person Aa€™s mood, leaving the vibe down there until Person A snaps out of it on her owna€”but when the moods are reversed, Person B quickly disregards her own bad mood and acts more cheerful to match Person Aa€™s happy mooda€”and this is how itA alwaysA goesa€”then Person A is in a serious power position.
When you havena€™t seen a good friend in a long time, the first order of business is a big catch-upa€”you want to know whata€™s going on in their career, with their girlfriend, with their family, etc., and they want to catch up on your life.
Your rock friendships dona€™t warrant 2x the time you give to your other friendsa€”they warrant 5 or 10x. But herea€™s the thinga€”a list is a great format for an article, and a format I was using on my old blog almost 10 years ago.
A lighter color can make a small room feel more spacious, while a darker color can help an immense room seem cozier. A warm hue in the living room or family room creates a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere for guests than a cooler color. Because it takes more effort to clean, a flat finish is ideal for the low-traffic areas of your home. Easier to clean than flat paint, theya€™re great for high-traffic areas such as hallways, bathrooms, bedrooms, and playrooms. Also, keep in mind that the higher the gloss, the more it emphasizes any surface imperfections. Water-based gloss enamels have less odor than conventional oil-based paints, theya€™re much easier to clean up, and they wear better over time.
You might be invited to their wedding, but you wona€™t have any responsibilities once youa€™re there. Your relationship tends to exist mostly as part of a bigger group or through the occasional Facebook like, and it doesna€™t even really stress you out when you hear that one of them made $5 million last year.
Wea€™ll get to the great, Quadrant 1 friendships later in the post, but in order to treat those relationships properly, we need to take a thorough look at the odd ones first. The green part of the mountain is sacred territory, and super self-absorbed people shouldna€™t be permittedA to set foot up there. This leaves both of them petrified of the lumbering elephant that appears in the room anytime theya€™re alone together. Other times, the person is just hopelessly scared and closed off and therea€™s no hope and you have to get out. This friendship is one long, continuous rejection of you as a human being, and youa€™re just wallowing there in your yearning like a sobbing little seal.
Unfortunately, youa€™re also extremely close friends from when you were four, and youa€™re both just a part of each othera€™s situation forever, sorry. Some people have become Future 52-year-olds, while others are super into beingA Previous 21-year-olds.
They may still like each other, but theyA cana€™tA be as close as they used to bea€”each of their lives is a bit of a middle finger at the othera€™s choices, and thata€™s just awkward for everyone. On the plus side, there are people out there you havena€™t spoken to in seven years who know all about the new thing youa€™re trying with your hair, since it goes both ways.
And keep in mind that seeing one of them for a meal isna€™t really enougha€”your rocks deserve serious, dedicated time so you can stayA close.A So go make plans with them.


In fact, my first listicle, 19 Things I Dona€™t Understand, was published in August of 2005, a year before Buzzfeed was even founded. Shop Lowea€™s Shop Lowea€™s Part 1: Getting Started Size up your room a€“ Consider its shape and dimensions. It may be hard for you to believe, but you are not the only person who has an opinion and who knows something.
If you live in the same city, you might see them every month or two for dinner and have a great time when you do, but if one of you moves, you might not speak for the next year or two. But I actually enjoy the shit out of this frienda€”sure, therea€™s a limit on how close wea€™ll ever be, but without ever spending time talking about our lives, we actually end up in a lot of fun, interesting conversations. Theya€™re way too on top of s--t to ever end up in the car alone together if a group is going somewhere in multiple cars, but there are smaller dangers afoota€”like being the first two to arrive at a restaurant or being in a group of three when the third member goes to the bathroom. The only comfortable mode for this person is bonding with you by building a little pedestal for you both to stand on while you criticize everyone else. Plus, duh, if you gather your self-respect and move on with your life, ita€™ll raise their perception of your value and they might actuallyA become interested in you. At some point, things will start to meld together again, but being 30-ish is the friendship equivalent of a kid going through an awkward pubescent stage. Ita€™s not always that bada€”but to survive an Off-Line Life Situation, friends need to be really different people who dona€™t at all want the same things out of life. The problem is, when you dona€™t make enough time for good friends, seeingA them only for a meal and not that oftena€”you end up spending each get-together catching up, and you never actually get to just enjoy the friendship or get far past the surface. Then, over the last few years, I watched in horror as one of my favorite formats decided to prostitute itself all over the internet as the default format for lazy articles. Because tools, products, materials, techniques, building codes and local regulations are continually changing, Lowea€™s assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information contained herein and disclaims any liability for the omissions, errors, or the outcome of any project. 48: a€?Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. And if something huge happens in their life, therea€™s a good chance youa€™ll hear it first from someone else. You can either play along and everything will go smoothly, even though youa€™ll both despise yourselves and each other the whole time, or you can commit the ultimate sin and have the integrity to disagree with the friend or defend a non-present party the friend criticizes. Thata€™s the Perpetual Catch-Up Trap, and I find myself falling into itA with way too many of the rocks in my life. AnywayA the point is, A) I was doing listicles before they were cool, and B) A list headline doesna€™t mean it cana€™t be a high-quality article, so C) Wait But Why will make an article a listicle when ita€™s the best format for that post, and dona€™t be mad at us cause ita€™s not what it looks like. Finally, this leader had heard enough ofA them and kindly spoke up, tellingA them to be quiet so other people could express themselves. Youa€™ll catch your new love cheating on you and murder them both in an act of incredibleA passion. Doing this will shatter the fragile team vibe and make the friend recoil and say something quietly like, a€?Hma€¦yeaha€¦I guess.a€? The friend now respects you for the first time and will also criticize you extra hard next time shea€™s playing her pedestal game with a different friend. As you're looking around the room at the other leaders, you realized they were all breathing a sigh of relief that someone had finally told that person to be quiet.
And it doesna€™t matter, because none of it will be discussed with The Non-Question-Asking Friend, who never, ever, ever asks you anything about your life. But in their efforts to proveA their worth in the sight of those other leaders, they nearly took over the discussion, making it appear as if they wanted to a€?hoga€? the whole conversation. Part 2: Choosing a Color Palette Have color confidence a€“ Dona€™t be afraid to paint bold and bright. TheA word a€?strifea€? is the Greek word eritheia, which is the picture of a person who is jockeying for some kind of position. I had this wonderful sermon today on resurrection but I am changing it due to something in this morninga€™s paper.
This is a person who is trying to make himself look powerful, insightful, or significant in the sight of other people.
This is an interesting Greek mixture of concepts that describes the utter futility of such jockeyingA and positioning. Our daughter who is also in the Army was in special training for 3 A? months and Oma and I took care of Alan at our home. Part 3: Selecting a Finish Flat a€“ Flat paint is best suited for ceilings, areas where surface imperfections might be visible, and anywhere else that a muted low-reflecting surface is desired. Kenos describes something that isA hollow or empty, and the word doxas is the word for glory. At the local daycare, Alan met his friend Noah and they played together for the duration of this time. The first part of theA word is the Greek wordA tapeinos, which describes something that is lowly, humble, or base. It suggests a person who is modest,A unpretentious, and a€?without airsa€? about himself, even if he knows that he is more intelligent,A gifted, or talented than others. Donations can be sent to any PNC bank location in Pennsylvania directed to the Noah Staley Trust Fund. Part 4: Making Your Purchase Water versus oil a€“ When selecting an interior finish, try choosing a water-based enamel instead of an oil-based gloss paint. This cancer is so rare that only about 100 people in the US have ever been diagnosed with this. Rather than incessantly talk and a€?hoga€? every conversation, we must learn to make room for the gifts that lieA resident in other people.
I am asking all of my readers, please pray to our Lord for his healing, that his parents get the much needed monies, and that everyonea€™s faith shall increase as they see the Glory of God do a miracle.

I am truly repentant for giving people the impression that I thought I was the only one in the group with something worthy to say.
Forgive me for being so self-absorbed and for not recognizing the other outstanding people with gifts, talents, and ideas that were just as valuable as my own. Help me boldly claim my full capacity for your use.a€? ------------- Donna Givlera€”quoting Katie Brazelton of Saddleback Church in her devotional book titled a€?Praying for Purpose, for Womena€?. Because they are just as important as I am, I always give them time to express themselves and to let their gifts function as God intends.
I am a part of a God-gifted group, and every member is filled with gifts and ideas that I need.
Do you treat people like they are valuable, unique creations of God who deserve the highest respect? Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.a€?1 Corinthians Chapter 15, vs.
Or have you inadvertently focused only on yourself, giving others the impression that you think you are the only one who has something to contribute?A 2. 42: Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. Have you ever had to work with someone who a€?hoggeda€? every conversation and didna€™t give anyone else an opportunity to express himself?
27: For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Holy one to rot in the grave. 2: The leaders were very disturbed that Peter and John were teaching the people that through Jesus there was a resurrection of the dead. 11: I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or the other I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
It proved that he was God and that He had power even over His own death and Satana€™s dominion. As you're looking around the room at the other leaders, you realized they were all breathing a sigh of relief that someone had finally told that person to be quiet. God can resurrect our lives, our dreams, and our visions if we ask him to or if it is His will for us. If we have a dream or vision and we lose sight of it we can gain our sight back if we ask Him in prayer. She continued her life style and left her son with babysitters while she partied and enjoyed life (she thought). One day, depressed of how her life was going, she drove past our church and stopped in on a whim. We sponsored her that Christmas and had much joy running around buying her son Jared presents. Over the next two years we connected a couple more times and gave her encouragement when we seen her.
Last year we gave her a gift card for a restaurant so that she and Jared could have a nice meal out together. She now has a good full time job with benefits, her son is doing fantastic in school, and she is looking exceptionally healthy and emotionally stable now.
For she took the courage in her slow death of life and laid all her hope at the foot of the cross. My wife and I thank God that he let us participate, even if it was very little, in her re-birth. Shortly after the dream, we were visiting YWAM in Lebanon and they were showing us their prayer tent that they use in Lancaster and Cape Cod. This was with the hope that someone would step up to the plate and donate a space to erect it. However, recently the pastors of the Gathering Place (a project to help people with Aids) asked us to help bring CAP some clothes this winter. Just open your mouth and ask.a€?A a€?Even though your promise may be postdated, remember whose signature is on the checka€? Pastor Pop-Pop 11-8--09. What started out as something to just help pastor my children, has turned into something that may be helping lots of people. According to Yahoo my host, I have an average of 50 hits a week on the Pastor Pop Pop site. This weekend at a prayer tent at a local flea market, I seen a leg grow that was shorter than the other one.


Every week from now on there will be two tabs to the right of the Home Page that will be new. We will address both today and you may click on the Tab in future weeks to experience the Altar Call again.
A Christian artist once said that when she was in another country and away from her Church, she would sit and pray alone and have communion by herself to remind her of her faith. That inspired my wife and me to do it occasionally by ourselves and with some of our Amish friends.
It can be about your body, mind, soul, family, friends, healing needed, finances, challenges, or anything that you wish.
Turn away from your former self, study in the Word (the Bible) and find yourself a good Christian Church that will support you and help you grow in your faith. The Son being Jesus Christ who died on the cross at Calvary and shed his blood for our sins.
I believe that since I now accept Him as my Lord and Savior that I have been washed clean of my sins and guilt by his blood. Jesus, I love you.a€? A If you prayed this simple prayer, you are saved and re-born in Him. We are going to drown!a€? He replied, a€?You of little faith, why are you afraid?a€? Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, a shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling. Although I own and study from many various different Bible translations, I personally normally use the NAB version.
Occasionally I like to read some of the a€?missing books of the Biblea€? sometimes called the Apocrypha. They include the books of the books of Baruch, Judith, both Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and the book of Wisdom. If youa€™re Amish (I do have some Amish readers), you may find these books in an earlier version of the King James printing. Any way, I was reading the book of Sirach and through some of the verses it was put on my heart that I treated this person somewhat wrongly and it could have been done through ambition or pride of mine. I immediately broke down and confessed this sin to Jesus and asked for Goda€™s forgiveness. However, I will declare that the Lord has closed a door but he will surely open a new and better one. I choose to believe this truth and not the news media and evil spirits who would much rather us to believe that this bad economy, unemployment, and world affairs will defeat us. He was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. The Scriptures say, a€?People do not live by bread alone.a€™a€? Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
12: For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. It is good for us to know the Scriptures and write some down to pray and declare a€?in Jesusa€™ namea€™ when we are being attacked. When you are in the battles of life, say a verse or two out loud and declare it over your life in Jesusa€™ name. Tell Satan to, a€?Get out of my life, body, mind, and soul and leave me alone in Jesusa€™ namea€? And use the arrows against him.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.Go away, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. My enemies retreated; they staggered and died when you appeared.Turn and answer me, O Lord my God!
Dona€™t let my enemies gloat, saying, a€?We have defeated him!a€? Dona€™t let them rejoice at my downfall.Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Protect my life from my enemiesa€™ threats.But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down. Pray and think on this thing called freedom, which we take for granted but is being eroded away. 37-40: Then He said to him (a Pharisee), a€?Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 21: The one who pursues righteousness and faithful love will find life righteousness, and faithful love. Many relatives were coming to our home to partake in the golden turkey and all the other foods and treats my wife prepared. So I will not be spending Thanksgiving having dinner around a table with my family like you are going to. If people like you would not patronize this store on holidays and make sure that you have all your stuff the day before, it would be unlikely that they would stay open.
It also made me think about all the other stores that are open on these days and the countless others that have to work those days and cannot have an enjoyable time like some of the rest of us. And dona€™t forget to thank them for being there if you just cannot bear not to go to the store for that a€?emergencya€? item.
37-38: On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, a€?Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! For the Scriptures declare, a€?Rivers of living water will flow from his hearta€™.a€?Matthew Chapter 11, vs. On one day before his memorial service when we were all there at his home, his daughter went out in the backyard by her self.
She was walking around in the back yard and my other brother and I decided to go out and comfort her. She said that she looked up in the sky (it was blue and full of clouds that day) and, a€?I saw a very large white hand that seemed to reach down to mea€?. She stated that she felt it was her daddya€™s hand and because of this she felt better knowing that he was still watching over her. We may go through many troubles and trials in our lives but God will always be with us and never forsake us. 12-13: If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go and search of the stray?
And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.
After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation.
When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need. So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine. Coming to his senses he thought, a€?How many of my fathera€™s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger. I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, a€?Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.
While he was a long way off, his father caught sight of him and was filled with compassion.
Loads of cars and cameras were set up by the Audubon society to just catch a glimpse of it. You may have had parents or grandparents that were religious and went to church and prayed. Perhaps you have done something you consider really bad and believe God just doesna€™t love you anymore.
Through his Son, if you confess your sins and ask for his forgiveness, you will be washed clean again. One that will help you feel better, enriches your soul, shower you with His Word, and nurture your faith so it grows in the path of Christ. I wish to thank all my readers for visiting my web site this year and I hope that it helped in some way. She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means a€?God is with usa€™).Micah Chapter 5, vs. 2: But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah .
God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.John Chapter 20, vs.
30-31: The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.Luke Chapter 2, vs. 9-12: Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lorda€™s glory surrounded them. The Savior a€“ yes, the Messiah, the Lord a€“ has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! The names have been changed and the name of their Church deleted to help keep their identities secret.
It was at this Church that we also got baptized together and rededicated our lives to Christ.
I desire a man after your own heart and if that is not Mark then remove him.a€? I also said, a€?But Lord, divorce is not your desire, I believe in you.
Mark has too much pride to come down to the altar, but I know if you can make a Donkey talk, you can call him out!a€? (Read Numbers Chapter 22, vs. God has something to say.a€? Now the Pastor did not know Mark and did not know what I had prayed before we came here, only God knew. I now read the Bible to them every day, monitor their TV, take them to Church, and lay hands on them and speak blessings into their lives.
