Find the Right One God Prepared for Me

By Xiaoxiao

Boys and girls, teaching buildings and dormitories, they are easily connected with schoolyard crushes. As time goes by, these crushes are set as fond memories, sealed in a diary called MEMORY. Years later, when a girl opens her diary, memories are replaying like movie scenes one after another …

On a bright sunny afternoon, students were buzzing in the classroom. The girl’s deskmate asked another classmate, “Have you ever thought of what your future boyfriend will be like?” Hearing this, the girl supported her head on one hand, falling into deep thought: What will my boyfriend be like? A teen, in the prime of youth, always has great longings for the future. The girl was tall among other teenage girls, neither fat nor thin, and with a sharp chin on her oval face, she was not that outstanding but still eye-catching. She had her standard for her future boyfriend, and she expected him to be tall and thin and good-looking—even if he was not that outstanding, he should not be too ugly.

Time was flying, and in an instant, the girl got into the university where students could live as they liked, such as wearing their favorite make-up, dressing casually, and falling in love without restraint. However, such a free life was detested by the girl somewhat, because it allowed most girls to dress gorgeously to keep beginning a new crush, and abortions to be common. So although many classmates said to the girl, “Dress up and you will look prettier,” she remained unmoved. She told herself, “I can’t follow the crowd because I’m a Christian. I will choose my boyfriend with the aim of marriage, and I won’t accept premarital sex.”

The girl’s first year in university was going to end with the final examination. “I can head for home in only three days,” she counted and longed. Just then, a profile photo on the list of her QQ friends popped up. It was a message from her junior middle school classmate, saying, “I heard from a classmate that your school hasn’t broken up, but ours has. I’m doing a part-time job nearby your school. How about having a gathering in your spare time?” Reading the message, the girl couldn’t help recalling her middle school days, when she was still the tallest girl among others, and the boy often sparred with her over who was taller. At that time, the boy was very cute in her eyes. … “It’s been four years since we last met. Has he grown taller?” wondered the girl. Then, she agreed to the boy’s proposal. On the meeting day, the girl looked the boy up and down, as did the boy. She said, “Wow! You are nearly taller than me by ahead.” The boy smiled and said, “Yeah. You are more beautiful now. I believe you will be more beautiful if you apply some make-up.” To the boy’s words, the girl didn’t give much thought. Later, because the boy had to go back to work, they didn’t talk long before they parted.

The final examination came to an end, and the girl was finally on the homeward train. The boy phoned the girl again, asking, “You are on your way home?” She said, “Yeah. What’s up?” Following this was a momentary silence. Then the boy continued, “I’ve considered one thing carefully for a whole day. I think I’ve fallen for you …” Hearing this, the girl was dazed. After some thought she replied, “I know what you mean. I need to think about it.” The boy agreed.

The boy’s home was not far from the girl’s. When only half a month was left before the new term began, the boy came home and asked to meet the girl. Unlike others who only made a boyfriend for fun, the girl wanted a mate who had similar ideals and beliefs with her. Then she thought of two passages of words in a spiritual book: “It’s proper to get married when you are old enough, but you should choose the right one…

How you choose determines the path you will walk, and the destination you will have. The key is whether you can choose your path according to God’s requirements.” “When you are mature and want to start a family, what kind of partner will you choose? Is this related to your life outlook and your life values? (Yes.) They are closely related. If your life outlook and your life values are after God’s will, they are based on the truth. If your partner is of Satan and walks the path of Satan, then your marriage will not stand. Isn’t it so? This will cause the couple to share the same bed but dream different dreams, and they both will suffer. Is that the case? So your life outlook and your life values really matter a lot.”

These words were of great influence to the girl. In the past, the girl expected her boyfriend to be tall, thin, and handsome—this standard could only satisfy her vanity but could not necessarily bring her happiness. After mature consideration, she readjusted her viewpoint, and decided to meet the boy who was up to her standard in height, weight, appearance, and education background. But there was something that she must make clear at first, for example, whether the boy supported her belief in God, because this concerned whether they two could walk the same path. The girl thought it very good to believe in God since it could help her see through the evil of the society, not to follow it, and according to God’s requirements walk the right way of life. She hoped not only could the boy not oppose her but he could believe in God. So, when the appointed time came, she went to meet the boy. She said she was a Christian, and she told him about the truths contained within God’s words. Over their talk, several friends of the boy came and left after making a joke at them and then came again, with a water melon for them. This put a frown of anger on the face of the girl. Maybe because of the girl’s frown or for other reasons, the boy received the water melon and instantly threw it hard onto the ground. Seeing this, his friends left with anger. At that moment, the atmosphere became rather embarrassing. The girl hadn’t thought the boy would burst into anger. She was in no mood to go on with their talk, so they fixed another date to meet and then parted.

During the next meeting, the girl talked a lot to the boy. But the boy said to her coldly when they parted, “I believe in ghosts, not in God.” So after the girl returned home, she made preparations for resolving the boy’s notions when they met next time. Several days later, the boy offered to meet the girl. This time, the boy couldn’t wait to speak first, “I will wait for you for two years. If you still believe in God then, I won’t wait any longer.” After this, the boy mounted his bike and rode away, leaving the girl standing dumfounded and rooted to the ground, alone. Although soon he called to apologize, the girl only said to him, “It doesn’t matter. I think we are only fit to be friends.” Because judging from what had happened already, the girl found the boy irritable and impulsive in his actions.

As time passed by, the girl graduated and found a job in the city where her college lay. One day at work, she received a QQ message from another boy, her college classmate. “Are you online? Where do you work?” asked the boy. Without thinking much about it, the girl answered, “Near our university.” The boy replied at once, “I’m going to see a friend there within several days. See you then.” As the girl read the message, a disbelieving look swept across her face. The boy was tall, thin, dazzling, and the most handsome guy among her classmates; during their university days, they didn’t have much contact. But now, he would come to see her. This quite surprised the girl.

That day, the boy took many delicious foods to the girl’s rental house, and they had a long chat. Before leaving, the boy said to the girl, “In fact, this time I come here only for you. I have liked you for a long time.” In great surprise, the girl asked, “We even didn’t have much contact previously, so what do you like me for?” “Because I thought you are beautiful, and you will be more beautiful if you put on some make-up.” These words greatly satisfied the girl’s vanity, yet she didn’t reply. Then the boy continued, “You needn’t reply to me now. You can tell me when we meet next week.” The boy left. The girl was wavering in her heart. All humans had vanity; the girl was no exception. She also wanted her boyfriend to be handsome and admirable. Her heart was a bit touched, not knowing what to do.

pray to God

So she prayed to God, “O God. I have vanity, so that despite knowing nothing about him, I just want to agree with his advance on seeing his appearance. I know I’m wrong. May You keep my heart from making the wrong decision. May You guide me to make the right choice.” Having said the prayer, the girl’s heart gradually settled down: I must tell him about my belief in God before I make any decision. Two days later, the boy called the girl, saying, “I’m going to see you this weekend. Don’t forget to consider what I asked you last time.” The girl said, “Sure. I’ve already considered it thoroughly. I’ll tell you a big thing when you come then.” The boy said, “Okay. This time I won’t live at my friend’s home, I’m going to live in your house.” Upon listening to it, the girl said, “NO! No cohabitation before marriage—this is my principle.” The boy paused for a moment and then said, “Uh … It’s getting late. Good night.” From that day on, the boy didn’t appear at the appointed time and their contact ended thus. The girl felt disappointed and the whole matter ridiculous. Meanwhile, bewilderment welled up from her heart. She felt the world a sham one, the so-called “I like you” a scheme that couldn’t withstand even a single blow.

Since then, the girl didn’t want to mention all that was connected with marriage any longer. In bewilderment, she saw God’s words say, “Your temperament, caliber, appearance, stature, family in which you were born, your job and your marriage, the entirety of you, even the color of your hair and your skin, and the time of your birth were all arranged by My hands. Even the things you do and the people you meet every single day are arranged by My hands, not to mention the fact that bringing you into My presence today is actually My arrangement. Do not throw yourself into disorder; you should proceed calmly.” Having heard the utterances of the Creator, the girl was no longer bewildered. Since marriage was ordained and arranged by God, she believed that the one arranged by God for her was the best. So she had learned to take things as they came, to wait for God’s time to arrive.

Later, the girl left that city and went back to her hometown to begin with a new job. Sometimes, she would travel around with her childhood friend. One day, her friend introduced her to a boy. He was a junior middle-school graduate, born in the same city with the girl, and now worked in another place. She hadn’t wanted to meet the boy, but at her friend’s constant request, she had to go. The boy wasn’t tall but quite stout. What struck the girl’s heart were his smiling eyes and honest face. After the meeting, the boy went back to work and they often contacted each other via QQ and cellphone. In fact, the girl disliked only the boy’s stoutness and height, but not the boy himself. He didn’t talk much in their chat, but his every word was honest, without sweet talk. The girl thought the boy was reliable, so she told the boy, “Next time you come back, I’ll tell you something you don’t know.” The boy said, “Alright.” Before long, the boy returned home. After they met again, the girl went straight to the point, “I’m a Christian. Can you accept this?” The boy broke out smiling, saying, “I have already known about it.” The girl was stunned. Thereupon, they began to date formally. Once, the girl said to the boy, “Many people say that with some make-up I’ll be more beautiful. What’s your opinion?” Hearing this, the boy said, “I just like your plain face. You are beautiful as you are. By the way, make-up does damage to the skin. So I don’t want you to make up.” These words reminded the girl of what those boys she had met before said to her. All of a sudden, she understood that people who were truly considerate toward her wouldn’t care about her appearance. During her contact with the boy, she found that the boy was good-tempered. He didn’t lose his temper with the girl many times even when the girl made trouble out of nothing. In addition, the boy respected her very much. She always testified God’s work to the boy, and at last, the boy also believed in God. Soon, they got married.

One day, the girl saw a passage of God’s words, “One encounters many people in one’s life, but no one knows who will become one’s partner in marriage. Though everyone has their own ideas and personal stances on the subject of marriage, no one can foresee who will finally become their true other half, and one’s own notions count for little. After meeting a person you like, you can pursue that person; but whether he or she is interested in you, whether he or she is able to become your partner, is not yours to decide. The object of your affections is not necessarily the person with whom you will be able to share your life; and meanwhile someone you never expected quietly enters your life and becomes your partner, becomes the most important element in your fate, your other half, to whom your fate is inextricably bound. And so, though there are millions of marriages in the world, every one is different: How many marriages are unsatisfactory, how many are happy; how many span East and West, how many North and South; how many are perfect matches, how many are of equal rank; how many are happy and harmonious, how many painful and sorrowful; how many are the envy of others, how many are misunderstood and frowned upon; how many are full of joy, how many are awash of tears and cause despair…. Whether marriage itself brings happiness or pain, everyone’s mission in marriage is predestined by the Creator and will not change; everyone must fulfill it. And the individual fate that lies behind every marriage is unchanging; it was determined long in advance by the Creator.” The Creator’s words served as a key to the girl’s memory that had been kept in storage, and had struck a sympathetic chord in her. Now she lives with the boy who has similar ideals and beliefs with her. They often read God’s words together, explore the mysteries of life together, and enjoy the blessings of the Creator together. The girl couldn’t help uttering heartfelt gratitude and praise to the Creator for His sovereignty and arrangement. If by any chance she had chosen the boy who was handsome, tall, and thin, she didn’t know whether she could live such a blissful life this day.

She wanted to testify the Creator’s wondrous deeds to the boy and to more girls who were baffled when choosing their marriage partner. Therefore, she told the boy A Story Between a Girl and Three Boys. After hearing it, the boy said with feeling, “It’s so good that we have believed in God. Whatever is arranged by God, it’s the best for us.”

Every marriage is predestined by the Creator. When can we meet our partner for life? God has His time for it. What we can do is not rely on our likes to choose or plan, but rather, we should commit our marriage to God, let God be the decision-maker; only by doing this can we truly reap a happy marriage. In our marriage life, God also arranges lessons for us to learn. Then how should we obey God and practice God’s words in such an environment? Please go on reading relevant articles.

My Husband No Longer Chats With Women Online!

By Liu Tao Yang Liu and Xiang Ming got married through a matchmaker’s introduction. After marriage, though their life was not rich, Xiang Ming showed the utmost care and consideration for Yang Liu. When Yang Liu did the cooking, Xiang Ming was always her assistant. When going outside to stroll through streets or going shopping, they all went along with each other. The neighbors who saw them all said, “I find that you come everywhere in pairs. You are really an affectionate couple.” Yang Liu also thought that Xiang Ming was her closest confidant and was her lifetime reliance. After they had their lovely son, their family was even more filled with joy and they lived a steady and happy life. When their relative preached the gospel to them, their whole family all believed in the Lord Jesus. Later on, Yang Liu had the privilege of accepting God’s work of the last days. In the same year, they built a spacious and bright house. Xiang Ming didn’t accept God’s work of the last days, but he supported Yang Liu to believe in God, so their relationship was still enviable. However, not long after Xiang Ming worked in a grain and oil processing factory, Yang Liu found that he was a little different from the past. Several times, when they walked together, as soon as his phone rang, he would move away to answer it. Yang Liu guessed: Does Xiang Ming have the unfaithful intentions when he works outside? But when thinking that he treated her very well all the time and had paid a great price for the family, she considered he wouldn’t do that. Although she thought like this, she was still a little worried. Once, a message was sent to his phone as Xiang Ming fell asleep. Because of his abnormal changes, Yang Liu couldn’t help but read the message. It was sent by a female WeChat friend. She replied, “Would you be able to not chat with my husband?” But she never imagined that the female WeChat friend said, “It is not up to me. You should ask your husband. We chatted very happily! You’d better dominate your husband!” Yang Liu was filled with anger at the sight of that, so she turned her husband’s phone off. The next day, she warned Xiang Ming not to chat with female WeChat friends any more. He didn’t refute her, but he began to avoid her. When at home, he always finished meals at the fastest speed, and then looked for an excuse and went to other places to chat with the female net friends. One time, Yang Liu asked Xiang Ming in resentment, “Do you still want the family? Is playing WeChat to talk with female net friends important or am I important? Unexpectedly, he answered coldly, “The female net friends are more important. Now it is Internet age. Who doesn’t do like this, broadening connections and making friends with others? This is fashion!” Hearing her husband’s cold words, Yang Liu seemed to not know him who had lived with herself for over twenty years. Feelings of sorrow and desolation welled up in her heart. At that moment, she felt herself would be faint with anger. She thought about divorcing and leaving the home. But at the thought of her son needing a perfect family, she had to swallow it all up. From then on, Yang Liu and Xiang Ming separately lived in the eastern and western rooms. Though living under the same roof, they were like strangers. The happy family lost the former warmth and peace. Yang Liu felt agonized and stressful in her heart. She didn’t understand why Xiang Ming could become such a person now—a completely different person from before. With sorrow and distress, she could only pray and cry out to God over and over. One day, she saw these words of God, “One after another, all these trends carry an evil influence that continually degenerates man, that lowers their morals and their quality of character more and more, to the extent that we can even say the majority of people now have no integrity, no humanity, neither do they have any conscience, much less any reason. … For man who is not of sound body and mind, who never knows what is truth, who cannot tell the difference between positive and negative things, these kinds of trends one after another make them all willingly accept these trends, the life view, the life philosophies and values that come from Satan. They accept what Satan tells them on how to approach life and the way to live that Satan ‘bestows’ on them. They have not the strength, neither do they have the ability, much less the awareness to resist.” From God’s word, she understood: It was because of the influence of web and trends that her husband became like this and could say those words having no regard for their feelings as husband and wife. Thinking back, her husband was fairly fond of her, cherished and cared for their family very much, and had the sense of responsibility. But from the time when he worked in the grain and oil processing factory, under the influence of his colleagues and environment, he became obsessed with chatting on WeChat, always having his phone in his hands. He was deeply addicted to it and unable to extricate himself, totally neglecting their family, her or their son at all. Through the revelation of God’s word, Yang Liu understood: The culprit that have destroyed the happiness of their family is the evil influence brought by the social evil trends, is the WeChat app which occupies her husband’s heart every day, but not her husband, as he is just an innocent and pitiful victim. At that point, she didn’t resent him that much. She resolved to rely on God to fight the battle against satanic evil trends, bringing Xiang Ming back from the claws of Satan. By praying to God and relying on Him, she didn’t give Xiang Ming the cold shoulder as before. She began to speak with him from the heart actively and often read God’s word for him, talked about the harm that social trends bring to man and fellowshiped God’s will of saving man. Seeing the changes of Yang Liu’s attitude, Xiang Ming was able to sit down and had a heart-to-heart talk with her. One day, Yang Liu read two passages of God’s words to Xiang Ming, “The devil Satan does these things in order to lure people, to cause them to degenerate. For those who live in virtual worlds, they have no interest whatsoever in anything to do with the life of normal humanity; they are not in the mood to work or study. They are only concerned about going to virtual worlds, as though they are being enticed by something.” “So within an environment, whatever this environment instills in you, you then become; whatever it instills in you, you then obtain; however it controls you and leads you, in the end you become that kind of person. A man can become someone who is degenerate, evil, and bad in the extreme, and these things are what are brought to him by his environment. So who is the manipulator who controls this environment? What is its nature? … You become like this, and you don’t know when the change began, you’re unclear about it. You’re unclear on how this change has happened. Anyway, you have become who you are today. You don’t know how on earth you came to be this way, you’re unclear about why you took this path in the beginning, unclear about why you have now become like this; in short, you came to be this way in a state of confusion. This is the process of Satan’s corruption of man, and it is the method it uses, and people are therefore corrupted and degenerated in this way.” Yang Liu fellowshiped, “Xiang Ming, you were not like this before. You treated me well, treated our son well and also loved the family very much. But since you are addicted to chatting on WeChat, you have no longer taken care of son and me, and even sometimes you can’t hear me when I talked to you. Moreover, you have lost the normal life. I found that you didn’t know whether you were full when you ate meals, and just gorged some food and then went outside the dining room to play WeChat. You were also not in the mood to work, but were preoccupied with chatting online as well as those female net friends all day. It proves that you have been controlled by the evil trends. Xiang Ming, you seek temporary excitement and comfort when chatting with them, but have you given thought to this? Can chatting on the web really bring you happiness? Can you rely on chatting with these female net friends to spend the rest of your life? Looking around, how many families have broken up because of one side’s chatting online. Some women abandoned their husbands and children and ran off with male net friends; some men left their wives and children for female net friends and involved with them. Aren’t these tragedies caused by the evil trends raised up by Satan?We don’t have the truth and can’t see through Satan’s trickery, but today God’s word has revealed all the treacherous intentions of Satan. Satan is just using the Internet to tempt and corrupt us and make us live in passions and lusts, and enjoy the pleasure of sins so that it can reach its objective to devour us and make us perish together with it in the end. So, we can’t be fooled by Satan!” Hearing God’s word and Yang Liu’s fellowship, Xiang Ming felt very frightened and guilty. He said firmly, “Yang Liu, in the past, I thought people all did like this. It was not very serious. I even thought you were petty and made a fuss with me. Not until today do I understand this is Satan corrupting me. It wants to drag me to hell! It’s really the case. Sometimes I also knew it was not good to chat with net friends, which had influenced our feeling as husband and wife, and made me lose the sense of responsibility to our family. Especially when I saw you unhappy, I felt sad, too. And many time I have told myself never again to access WeChat, but I just couldn’t control my heart. Now I understand, this is Satan using online chats to deceive me and harm me. From now on, I can’t fall into Satan’s trickery any more. I will bring my mind back, and no longer indulge in WeChat. Let’s live well anew!” Hearing Xiang Ming’s words, Yang Liu felt warm in her heart and was greatly comforted. In order to prove his sincerity of repentance, Xiang Ming uninstalled the WeChat before Yang Liu. However, a week later, Yang Liu found Xiang Ming’s received WeChat messages on his phone again. When she questioned Xiang Ming, his face flushed scarlet. He promised her that he would no longer go on WeChat, and threw his phone into the burning cooking stove to prove his resolve of cutting off relations with those female net friends. Yang Liu realized the evil trends had poisoned Xiang Ming too deeply and she could only pray to God urgently, asking God to lead him to forsake the temptation of the evil trends and regain the life of a normal man. Later, when a sister of the church came to Yang Liu’s home to attend the meeting, she also communicated with Xiang Ming. They read two passages of God’s word, “Once these things are established in your mind, once they are stuck in your heart, it is just like a spell…. They influence your life, your outlook on life and they also influence your judgment of things. Even more so they influence your pursuit for the true path of life: This is indeed a spell! You try but you cannot shake them off; you chop at them but you cannot chop them down; you beat at them but you cannot beat them down. Is this not so? (Yes.)” “‘Satan uses so many different ways to corrupt man. It seizes every opportunity and is everywhere we turn. Can man still be saved?’ Is there still any hope for mankind? Can man save themselves? (No.) Can the Jade Emperor save man? Can Confucius save man? Can Guanyin Bodhisattva save man? (No.) So who can save man? (God.)” The sister fellowshiped, “Faced with Satan’s evil trends, if we rely on our own willpower to change that, it won’t do. We should rely on God with sincerity. And if we devote our mind to something serious, to seeking the truth, Satan won’t be able to sway our heart any more, because if we read more God’s word, we would be able to understand some truths and differentiate the evil trends of Satan, and then we will hate them naturally and will not be addicted to them and be deceived by them. As long as we rely on God, His word can resolve all our problems.” Xiang Ming made a deep nod. Henceforth, he attended meetings and read God’s word with Yang Liu. Gradually, his heart was not possessed by Internet chat; even if his phone was installed WeChat again, it couldn’t lure his heart. Yang Liu even heard Xiang Ming blame the female net friend several times for pestering him. Through reading God’s word and fellowshiping the truth, Xiang Ming clearly understood that WeChat is a means by which Satan occupies his heart, breaks up his family and even drags him to hell. Meantime, he could distinguish the positive and negative things, and could also quiet his heart before God to seek the truth. The family being on the verge of breaking regained the former laughter and chatter at last. One day, when Yang Liu and Xiang Ming read God’s word together, they saw the following, “All that Satan does is perfectly clear and understood by God. No matter what Satan does, no matter what trend it causes to arise, God knows all that Satan is trying to do, and God does not give up on those He has chosen. Instead, without attracting any attention, secretly, silently, God does everything that is necessary. When He begins work on someone, when He has chosen someone, He does not proclaim it to anyone, nor does He proclaim it to Satan, much less make any grand gesture. He just very quietly, very naturally does what is necessary.” “Only God is the truth. God controls the heavens and earth and everything in them and has dominion over all. Not to believe in God, not to submit to God is to be unable to obtain truth. If you live according to God’s word, you will feel a clarity, stability, and incomparable sweetness in the depths of your heart; you will have truly obtained life.” Both of them understood that if they hadn’t been led and saved by God’s word, if they hadn’t come before God, their family would have broken apart. They truly felt that God’s love is too great and too real. Yang Liu said, “When I was in pain and confusion, it was God who opened my heart with His word and made me see through Satan’s harm to us, the ignorant, so that I could have some understanding of my husband due to hating Satan and no longer resented and complained to him and could release myself from pain. When I prayed to God wholeheartedly and was willing to commit my husband into His hand, it was the leading of God’s word that made him see through Satan’s schemes, come back before Him, and no longer follow the social evil trends or continually degenerate. In my personal experiences, I realized: God’s word is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s word can make us have a clear understanding, can let us gain discernment and see through various schemes and trickeries of Satan poisoning man. God’s word is our most powerful weapon of resisting the attack of evil trends. With God’s word in our hearts, we will never be fooled or harmed by Satan. Thank God for leading my husband and bringing him back to his senses, and thank God more for saving my family. All the glory be to God!” You may be interested in this article: God’s Words Brought Me Out of My Marriage Risk – Spiritual Awakening

How to Resolve the Marriage Risk Brought by the Social Network Apps?

When Zhiqiang and Linlin knew each other, both of them considered each other as their lifelong partner that they can entrust. Linlin was a college student at that time, so she told Zhiqiang she would marry him after she graduated. During that time, Zhiqiang’s family set their faces against their love relationship. They worried Linlin would break up with Zhiqiang. But Zhiqiang believed they were truly in love, and their love was impregnable. Zhiqiang’s family said resignedly: “You just walk one way to the end, and you will regret one day.” Linlin told Zhiqiang when she knew it: “I assure you, you are the only man I want to marry. No matter how hard life is, I’m willing to face any obstacle and stick it out with you.” Four-year long-distance love race finally ended. Linlin kept her promise when she graduated, she married Zhiqiang. They led a sweet life. The birth of their daughter brought a lot of joy to this family. When Zhiqiang came home after a busy day, Linlin would carry a basin of foot-bath water for him, she also prepared delicious dishes on the table. Zhiqiang gave all his mind to this home as well, he tried his best to provide everything his wife and child needed. Although their living condition was not good, and they also had difficulties, they all gave encourages, comfort and supports to each other. The family lived in peace and happiness. In 2012, Zhiqiang accepted the kingdom gospel of God, but he seldom attended meetings because of his busy work. One day, when Zhiqang came back home after work, Linlin consulted with him that she felt so lonely when she stayed at home during daytime, so she wanted to buy a smartphone to help the time pass. Zhiqiang agreed without hesitation. Since Linlin bought the phone, she couldn’t leave it all day long. There was no care to Zhiqiang as usual, no hot foot-bath water and no delicious dishes anymore, even less and less conversation with Zhiqiang. Sometimes Linlin gave him a cold shoulder when he was talking to her. Zhiqiang felt something wrong: Did she fall in love with other people? But when he thought back over the past ten years, Linlin bore hardship without complaints, and put her whole heart into this family, she shouldn’t do anything wrong to him, so Zhiqiang didn’t think too much about it. However, then Zhiqiang found there indeed was something wrong with his wife. Linlin put all the work away, and checked the phone in a hurry as soon as she got messages on Messenger. And she dodged deliberately in the bathroom, and chatted for half an hour every single time. Seeing her abnormal behavior, his mind was in a turmoil. He thought: Does she really cheat on me? I have to figure out what happened. Once Linlin went out for classmates reunion. She drank a lot of wine and she staggered back home. But she still chatted on Messenger attentively when she lay on the bed, and she was crying. Zhiqiang asked: “Why are you crying? Who are you chatting with? A man or a woman?” Linlin said, “A woman, nothing happened.” Zhiqiang grabbed the phone while Linlin was not paying attention, and she would wildly take the phone back. Zhiqiang avoided her and saw the dialogues in the phone. That guy said: “I know you love me so much, but my wife has already known our relationship …” Zhiqiang couldn’t keep looking. He flushed with anger and couldn’t control his emotion anymore. He raised his hand and gave her a slap across the face. This is the first time that Zhiqiang beat her. Linlin thought she was wrong, so she put her arms around her husband: “Please let me explain to you, we didn’t do any deviant behavior, we just chat casually, trust me!” Zhiqiang said angrily, “How can I believe in you? Can love be said casually to anyone? Don’t explain any more, our good life is over.” Linlin begged piteously to him, “Just forgive me this time, please.” Zhiqiang was in no mood for what she explained. He smashed the phone down on the concrete floor severely, yelling, “I’ll have you played more! I’ll have you played more!” The phone was broken immediately, and Zhiqiang’s heart was broken as well. Men only weep when deeply hurt. Zhiqiang couldn’t control the feeling of pain in his heart anymore when he knew his wife cheated on him. He shed tears, wondering: Why was their deep affection broken vulnerably? Why did his wife become like this? In the past, they helped and took care of each other when they had a bad living condition; now the living condition gets much better, but his wife cheats on him unexpectedly. In retrospect, Zhiqiang ignored parental objections and waited her for 4 years, he thought it would be an indestructible relationship. He never thought their relationship was broken just by Messenger. For the following several days, no matter how Linlin begged for Zhiqiang’s forgiveness, he couldn’t face the fact, living in pain and despair and losing the hope to this marriage completely. At this time, brothers and sisters came to Zhiqiang. They saw that his face creased up with sorrow, so they communicated that when the troubles and pains came to themselves, how they depended on God and how God’s words comforted and helped them out of the pains. Zhiqiang thought the communication of brothers and sisters were very actual, they all spoke their minds, and he was moving by that. He saw God’s actual love and mercy. So he opened his mind as well, pouring out his own bitterness in his heart to brothers and sisters. They comforted ZhiQiang, “Brother, don’t be too sad. Actually, human beings are all innocent. The degeneration of humanity is caused by Satan’s corruption. If we want to hate, we should hate Satan! Satan used evil trends to corrupt us. Especially, playing phones brings a lot of pain to many families. Let’s read some God’s words about this.” Then brothers and sisters read two passages of God’s words to him, “But to people, it seems like a world of gaiety and splendor, one that is becoming more and more so. When people look upon the world, their hearts are drawn to it, and many are unable to extricate themselves from it; great numbers will be beguiled by those who engage in trickery and sorcery. If you do not strive for progress, and are without ideals, you will be swept away by this sinful wave.” “We only wish to talk about the ideas that social trends bring about for people, the way they cause people to conduct themselves in the world, the life goals and outlook that they bring about in people. These are very important; they can control and influence man’s state of mind. One after another, all these trends carry an evil influence that continually degenerates man, that lowers their morals and their quality of character more and more, to the extent that we can even say the majority of people now have no integrity, no humanity, neither do they have any conscience, much less any reason. So what are these trends? You cannot see these trends with the naked eye. When the wind of a trend blows through, perhaps only a small number of people will become the trendsetters. They start off doing this kind of thing, accepting this kind of idea or this kind of perspective. The majority of people, however, in the midst of their unawareness, will still be continually infected, assimilated and attracted by this kind of trend, until they all unknowingly and involuntarily accept it, and are all submerged in and controlled by it. For man who is not of sound body and mind, who never knows what is truth, who cannot tell the difference between positive and negative things, these kinds of trends one after another make them all willingly accept these trends, the life view, the life philosophies and values that come from Satan. They accept what Satan tells them on how to approach life and the way to live that Satan ‘bestows’ on them. They have not the strength, neither do they have the ability, much less the awareness to resist.” By looking at God’s word and listening to the communion of brothers and sisters, Zhiqiang’s locked eyebrows were gradually opened. He understood that those people who did not come to God were all fooled by Satan, living in the evil trends, and they didn’t have abilities to resist Satan’s temptations and distinguish between positive and negative things. Looking back to the past, his wife was a gentle, considerate and family-centered person, but since she became fascinated by Messenger, she has become another person. She became crazy about it all the time and didn’t have mind to do anything, only thought of the Messenger. She lost her sense of family responsibility for a long time, which led her to do unethical things. In fact, in the modern society, lots of happy families are broken in this way. Online chatting and online dating have caused more and more serious conflicts between family, and finally they ended in a divorce. Children also lost the warmth of the family and were physically and mentally harmed. At this time, Zhiqiang’s heart was relieved a lot, thinking: Yeah, my wife is also one of the victims who are corrupted by the evil trends. I am just too busy to spend time and energy on Messenger, otherwise, I am also likely to make the same mistake like my wife has done. At this point, Zhiqiang’s heart was full of gratitude to God. But for God’s mercy, and that God moved brothers and sisters in time to communicate God’s word with him, and help him know the reasons why his wife cheated on him and see through Satan’s means and the truth of corruption for people, he would certainly still live in the resentment of his wife, even couldn’t recover after a setback, his family would also be faced with being broken. Zhiqiang heartily thanked God for His true love and salvation. Since then, Zhiqiang actively participated in the meetings. In the word of God, he understood a lot of truths, his wounded heart was soothed for a little bit, and he forgave his wife completely. After Linlin had this bitter lesson, she was willing to repent, and return to the family. The family was restored to its usual stable and peaceful life again. Nowadays, Zhiqiang no longer believed in God with a sloppy attitude, but he devotes more time to communicate the word of God with brothers and sisters. Now he lives a fulfilling life every day.
