In America, February is Black History Month—an annual celebration of African-Americans’ achievements. This month also is a time for recognizing the crucial role Blacks played, and continue to play, in U.S. history.
One of the most commonly named grounds people use when filing for a divorce is irreconcilable differences. The term irreconcilable differences generally means that the married couple can’t or won’t restore their marital relationship—that their differences make them powerless or unwilling to reconcile.
In every marriage, especially the ones that end in divorce, there is at least one person who invariably regrets never saying what should have been said while still in that relationship. The female speaker in this poem mentions she had this problem, but then she corrects it before it became too late.
Believers should never be money-oriented or obsessed with material possessions. However, this truth doesn’t mean they can’t find happiness in their own little world. Believers surely can count their blessings daily, give Father God thanks daily, and daily laugh, smile, have fun, and cherish the big and small things that delight them.
The anointing the apostle John speaks about—that which is embedded deeply within believers and that which teaches them all truth—is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This empowering, edifying, and supernatural baptism (believers’ spiritual edge) also is called the Holy Spirit’s Filling, which may or may not happen the moment believers receive their salvation.
Often the very people we treasure the most will be the people who hurt us the most. This truth is why the rate of broken families in America is a sad commentary on our Christian nation.
Losing a child, especially one with whom the parents had a close and meaningful relationship with, is one of life’s most agonizing challenges, even for believers in Christ. Thank God that, because His mercies are new every day, believing parents who experience unchained agony have hope and the promised help for the times when their loved ones are gone.
No matter if couplets are part of a poem, a dramatic scene, or if they are independent poems, couplets always have two consecutive rhyming lines that have the same meter (usually iambic pentameter). Additionally, couplets always form a complete thought, resolve a situation, or give commentary on the work’s theme.
It is an enormous tragedy that believing spouses participate in when they allow life’s sooner-or-later difficulties to tear asunder (break in two) their marriages. The two eternal souls that were one are what gets severed (divided), which means these torn asunder souls will eternally remain divided. Selah!
