The 2015 Arlington Christian Assembly saved my marriage. I can never thank the organizers of this event enough because if not for them, in part, I would be divorced now. The Christian assembly made me realize that I have to stop my sinful ways. I cannot love two women at the same time in a romantic sense. It’s not fair for the both of them. And so, I let go of my girlfriend and asked my wife to accept me back.
Gaining back her trust, respect, and love for me was not easy. In fact, she left me a couple of times, but I understood why she did that. In the assembly, it was discussed that I could never give up on the wife. I was the one who betrayed her and had an affair. It is also up to me to make it work again, no matter what the cost.
As for my girlfriend, I will have to say, I cared for her, but I realized that it wasn’t loved. It wasn’t true love. I was a selfish man, and I took advantage of them both. I’m not going to wash away my sins here. I am going to say it again and again. I have sinned. I have committed adultery. I have disappointed my Lord God. I have hurt my wife of 10 years, and another woman who trusted me with her love.
But I cannot go on punishing myself. What I did was ask for forgiveness from God of what I did. After that, I prayed every day and night so that I could forgive myself for doing it. While the path of self-discovery was on the way, I also made sure that I connected with my wife every single day. Yes, I received hurtful words, shouts, screams, cries, and at times, pushes. I took it all in, and you know what, my effort was rewarded. After two years, she welcomed me back into her life, and we’ve been more than in love ever since.
Is it possible to forgive someone who caused us an unthinkable crime? The Bible states that we need to forgive those who trespass against us, but how do we do it if the pain is unbearable? For instance, what if someone murdered our father or raped our sister? Would we still be able to face our transgressor and tell him, “I forgive you?” When Jesus came down to earth, He taught us how to live righteously, that though it is hard, we have the Bible to remind and guide us on how to face challenges.
The world has evolved since the beginning of time, but there are things which remain, and that is we all have to deal with stress. The people before us, the holy, the righteous, the glorious, and even Jesus dealt with difficulties. They all struggled and found ways to cope with stress through conversing with God in silence, through prayer and meditation. Read More

Jesus did many miracles when He was here with us on earth, and among those were when he healed people with sickness. He made the crippled walk and the blind see. He even cured a man with leprosy whom no one dared to come near to. Jesus is the Divine Healer, and nothing is impossible with Him. Through faith and prayer, healing is ours. Read More
Success has a very extensive meaning. It depends on the person defining the word because we have a different interpretation of it. Some people correlate success with the amount of money they have in the bank, the properties enlisted in their names, the number of followers on social media, an excellent career, the prosperity of marriage, or the wellness of the whole family. However, what does success really mean? What does the bible say about it? Read More
In Genesis 3:19, the Bible says “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground since from it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust, you will return.” We understand that we are all headed to one end, but why do we fear? Why are we so obsessed with immortality? Many people seek it, and most of us fear death. Why are we afraid of something we already know is coming? Read More
