I have been a fan of Dr. Myles Munroe since one of my best friends introduced him to me in college. She put me down on the “Purpose and Power of Man” and the “Purpose and Power of Woman”. I just have to say that those were simply the bomb.com. Seriously, if you aren't familiar with them they are AWESOME to read… Nevertheless, she is currently in medical school, and she sent me this YouTube video of Dr. Myles Munroe speaking about singleness in marriage. It BLESSED ME, so I wanted to share a few points that I gained from it.
In this day and age that we live in, we have seen and read a ton of studies saying that married people have better sex than single people. However, even though the title of this blog might allude to that, it has nothing to do with sex. This is about the most important thing a marriage can have. It is the thing that is more important than sex, prayer. Did you know that married people have the potential to have the best prayer life out of any group? And by best prayer life I mean that all of your prayers get answered! Matthew 18:20 (KJV) says, “For where two or three are gathered together in My name there am I in the midst of them” which means anytime a husband and wife pray, Jesus is there with them no matter where they are.
It always amazes me how so many people walk in the church sad, broken, and depressed, participate in praise and worship, shout Hallelujah with tears streaming down their face, and then turn around and walk out sad, broken, and depressed. I feel like church is the only place where people tend not to leave better than they came.
This song really ministers to me because there was a time that I didn’t find myself worthy of anything...
Contrary to popular belief I haven’t always been outgoing. As a child, I was very shy and very rarely spoke to people that I did not know and because of that I developed this outlook that people did not approach me or befriend me simply because they did not like me! (What a lie from the pit of hell!) However, with that way of thinking, it became very easy for me to isolate myself and withdraw into my own emotions and how I thought people viewed me. Boy, was I wrong! :)
My heart is broken. It breaks for all those who have lost someone near to their hearts within the last few days and it breaks for those that I have lost over the years. Over time, you begin to recognize that not everyone you know is actually going to make it to that big ‘ol garden in the sky. You recognize that sometimes the people that you love the most don’t make it to where you want them to make it to. It’s sad and it hurts. But, no one really wants to acknowledge that it could even be possible because we want to believe the best and we want to believe that God wouldn’t be so unjust that He could just let someone we love die and yet they go to hell. But, He is JUST. He is righteous and whether we like it or not, we must come to terms with the fact that if someone does not know Jesus they may not have “earned their wings” or made it to Heaven where we so desperately want them to be, and that’s the part that hurts the most.
