The Domestic Slave


There are various kinds of slavery in the world, and many classes of victims of this cruel bondage. There is among others, the domestic slave, whose tyrant is her husband--and the scene of her bondage, her home!

His stinginess allows her scanty supplies for bare necessities. His selfishness is so engrossing and exacting, that his demands for his own personal ease and indulgence are incessant, and leave her no time for the consideration of her own comfort. His disposition is so bad, that all her diligence to please are unavailing to give him satisfaction, or to avert the sallies of his irritability, discontent, and complaints.

Think Jesus

I'm sure you've heard many times that we are to think positive thoughts and indeed we do need to think positive instead of thinking negative. However, just thinking positive thoughts will never change us or our circumstances. We don't have the power to change anything. It takes the power of our risen Saviour living in us to change us and our circumstances. Instead of thinking positive we should "Think Jesus." He is the only one who can change a life and melt a hardened heart into a soft heart.

His Faithfuless, My Faithfulness

I think if we would be honest with ourselves, all of us could say that there are times in our lives when we get discouraged because of cruel, sarcastic and critical words that have been said to us. Our strength grows weak, our determination to keep going falters and we are tempted to say things and do things that a Christian should not say or do.

Affirmations: Living Day by Day

  1. It is a victory, not a failure, to admit that I cannot control my problems, for then I can turn to a higher power and begin to find serenity.
  2. It is constructive to take an honest look at myself, face the true feelings and communicate honestly.

Feeling Weak?

Psalm 34:8
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

It is easy to forget to feed ourselves spiritually. We get too "busy" to read our Bibles, pray, meditate or fellowship with others. As a result we start to starve and spiritual malnutrition sets in. This is when we are most susceptible to our addictions and dysfunctions. It is imperative for us, as recovering people, to feed ourselves on a daily, hourly or even momentary basis.

Are You Willing to Trust God's Word?

2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land..”

Codependency, Hardship and Stress - A Testimony

I just want to share how God has blessed me. The past few years have been difficult as I've been recovering from codependency. One of the hardest things I've struggled with has been anxiety, which reared its head as I started to let go of the codependent behaviour. I realized that there was so much fear underneath all the controlling I had been doing all those years. I was having panic attacks all the time. had to go on meds for it and depression too. I thought my life was coming to an end because of how bad I felt.

That's why social events like Christmas were a nightmare. I was also reacting to my parents because I had a lot of rejection coming to the surface. I felt like a teenager around them because everything they did made me cringe.

What Kind of Tomorrow Are You Seeking?

1 Peter 1:3-5
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
