Some days life feels so laden with too much troubles
At other times, the day feels a whole lot easier weight to carry
I am learning to put away the troubles
‘Cos the thought of tomorrow brings rays of hope
I know tomorrow will definitely be better
As in………… God definitely has a plan for me…….. His Word says (King James Bible):
· Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:5
· Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. Isaiah 49:1
· I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly. Psalm 22:10
I am not a Pastor oh…..but most times when I feel overwhelmed I dig up scriptures to boost my spirit man.
This past week has been just there………… nothing so exciting …… wait oh. I have a story a male colleague shared with me.
According to him, he said he was upset with his wife cos she “cursed him”. I wondered why a wife would curse her husband. Sykik asked him what happened, what was the curse… as in oya tell me everything ……
He wasn’t willing to tell the story but was shocked that she said “God punish you” to him. I told him that he must have said or done something for her to have retorted thus otherwise, she couldn’t have opened her mouth and that was the only thing she could think of saying. He said because he paid her full bride price there was no way the curse could be upon him. He said in their culture (somewhere in Benue State) that if a woman’s bride price is fully paid, she automatically becomes the man’s asset. Therefore, something he paid for with his sweat/money can’t place a curse on him. Is this true that women are assets in Benue…… so what happens to the cultures who don’t collect bride price? He insinuated that he was going to take her back to her parent’s house.
Anyways, I told him that I am very sure that he must have hurt her deeply and probably she wanted him to feel her pain and the only way she could get a reaction from him was to end her ranting with those words. I asked him to seat her down and have a heart to heart talk with her. That he should explain that her choice of words were not appropriate for use on her husband. I said most often women use words as a weapon. She did and obviously threw a punch that hit him below the belt.
I asked that they end the talk session with a divine, Holy Spirit filled, tongues speaking, hallelujah shouting …… make up sex that transcends all human understanding……. it helps a lot. Ask your pastor if you are in doubt
