The Week's Message: 7 Things We Can All Learn From Ruth

A brief background of Ruth to appreciate her story:

Ruth is not your ideal woman.

She was a Moabite. Moabites were descendants of Lot from an incestuous relationship with his oldest daughter.

Ruth was looked down upon because she was a woman (women were once considered a property, a little higher than cows in their society)

She’s a widow.

She remained faithful to her mother-in-law, Naomi. Braving the nasty things people said about her and the cruel treatment she received, she went out to glean the barley fields of her late husband’s kin Boaz.

Boaz heard of Ruth’s goodness from his people.
Boaz saw how Ruth cared for her mother-in-law.
Boaz had known Ruth’s loyalty, diligence, determination, and perseverance.
Naomi advised Ruth to dress up and sleep at Boaz’s feet.
The rest as they say is history.

7 Things We Can All Learn From Ruth:
1. Ruth’s priority was not to wait for someone to redeem her after her husband died leaving her with no children. Sort out your priorities. Don’t wait for other people—especially for men to validate your existence.

The Other Victims Of Ebola In Liberia

"There are two kinds of fear nowadays in Liberia: contracting Ebola, and contracting any other sickness/disease. The former, cuz it's deadly; and the latter cuz there's nowhere to get treated."

This Facebook post by my young nephew, speaks to the reality of life in my Liberia today. It presents a picture of a helpless people with nowhere to turn, a people who are dying because simple illnesses are not being treated. The question, who's counting these additional victims of Ebola?

My brother-in-law was near death. He's a young man in his late thirties who's not fully recovered from a stroke he suffered some years back. Lately he became very ill. Following his advice, one of his sisters took him to the nearest Ebola treatment centre to be tested. He was turned away because according to staff, he did not have the symptoms. They advised his sister to take him to a regular hospital, and that's when their nightmare began.

Mid-Week Message: The War Against Marriage (Are You Letting The Devil Win?) -By Demi Fayemiwo

Marriage is the one institution the devil is constantly waging war against. It is also the one institution many of us seem to be increasingly careless about. 

Having read so many disheartening stories about broken marriages, I couldn't help but wonder if people are really as bad as they seem, or if we are caught in a spiritual warfare we're not paying any attention to.

Of course marriage is not only about the spiritual, it is about the physical too- the physical characteristics and personality traits of our chosen partners, amongst many other things. The problem I see these days is that the devil is stealing our attention from the spiritual, by making us focus on the physical.

Marriages these days are crashing faster than blind bats; irreconcilable differences is one of the most common reasons for divorce. I wonder who came up with that term 'irreconcilable difference'. In all my years on earth, I am yet to really come across differences that cannot be reconciled if the two parties involved want to. However, for some reason, couples are struggling to reconcile these so-called differences that creep out of nowhere after five to ten years of marriage.

Relationships: 5 Steps To Trusting God When Life Is Hard

As Christian women we know the vital connection to God is through prayer, yet we can let it slip away from us. 
We must be deliberate in choosing to cling to it and trusting God even in the darkness and silence.

Maintaining that vital connection to God in prayer is a choice. Step by step, through the fog on our pathway, we can choose to trust that God has our best interest at heart and lean on His strength to get us through our day… or … we choose to shrug Him off with little expectation and lean wearily on our own understanding.

When we live our lives with prayer on the fringe we are really telling God that we don’t trust Him. Often with our lips we declare trust but with our lives we show that we really don’t believe He will see us through. Ask yourself the hard questions…
Do I really trust God to have my best interest at heart?
Do I really believe He will strengthen me today to walk where I need to walk…even in the dark and the silence?

These steps will help you  increase your TRUST in God and to bring prayer into focus.
