Insecurities...Overcome them! Pt. 1

          
Insecurity- 1. lack of confidence or assurance; self-doubt:  - dictionary.com
  Insecurities seem to cloud a woman's mind, over take her thoughts of herself, her abilities, and attributes.  Every woman goes through it, a feeling of inadequateness, comparing one's self to another woman either friend or on television. Listening to other women at the gym, mall, or reading a magazine on what is the proper silhouette for each size of a woman. It is hard as a human being not meeting expectation especially of a society that is constantly promoting a false image of an ideal woman. No one ever really tells you about Photoshop editing that is done in photos or how the woman in the photo has her own insecurities she is dealing with in her own life. She feels just as insecure but it is possibly in a different area than those envying her.

 Another way insecurities are planted within us is from our own friends! Yes, our friends can plant insecure feelings within us! We listen to them talk about their insecure issues, I know this us true, I have sometimes have done the same thing. Usually joking about myself but how does my friend know I am serious or not since we are just talking?   Are they looking at themselves and seeing the same flaws that "we" say are flaws.
Growing up in my house, I was blessed to have a mother that was always encouraging everything about me. Anything I thought was a flaw or a problem area, she was working to help me overcome those thoughts within myself and see the beauty of God's creation.
As parents, you must remember that your children can possibly carry your insecurities, listening to you everyday speaking negative words about yourself. A child will start to look at themselves in the mirror and worry about themselves. Then you begin to wonder, why does my child think so negative of themselves? How did this start? Sadly, it started with you!
That brings me to the point that your insecurities could have came from family drama and parents' insecurities.  Some parents have placed their own emotions, desires, and struggles on their children. You could have adapted their problems but you have the power to overcome those issues by seeing the best of God's creation; by not comparing ourselves to the world's standards and unrealistic expectation. 

Romans 12:2 ESV

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
 
Your challenge is to wake up each day and tell yourself.. 
"I am beautiful. I am wonderfully made. It starts with my smile, it is a sign of his grace; his love is displayed in my eyes, the color determined by faith. My hair is his glory, his light shines from my face.  My figure is perfecting, perfection is made through Christ. I am more than a conquer, insecurities will leave my life!"- Prophetess Tashaye
If you want to add more, please do, post it throughout your house, on your computer, in your purse, remember ... you’re beautiful!
Jude 1:2  ESV      
May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

 Let us as women today take the time to find value in ourselves by noticing our characteristics and substance! Rather it is our laughter, our smile, kindness, giving, mercy, grace, polished style...

What attributes contribute to your true beauty?
 How often are you discouraging yourself?
 How can we be encourager of God and discourage his creation?

It's in her Stride...

Stride:  v. 1. Walk with long, decisive steps in a specified direction
                     - decisive: (of a person) Having or showing the ability to make decisions quickly and effectively
2. v. Cross (an obstacle) with one long step

3. n. A step or stage in progress toward an aim 


As women of God we must stride towards our purpose in Christ Jesus.  We must be able to stride past obstacles, construction, and avoid pits in our walk with God. Our stride must be long steady steps towards his destination for our lives. We should walk with confidence as each step presses firmly on the ground. Our rock is the Lord Jesus Christ, so we should rest assured that each step is ordered by God by continuing in prayer throughout our day. God is constantly elevating us and we are learning him the more as we stride. 

Each step we make is a step of progress from our past relationships, friendships, and mistakes.  Yes, you will endure in your stride. We go through storms, rains, over hills, and we must keep the pace. We must remember that we have past that part of our lives and never walk backwards or continue in a cycle. A stride is a step forward! When we are stepping forward we must look forward. We should never look back  because we then miss out on what God is trying to show us.  Every obstacle is a testimony to glorify God. Every situation is temporary!


When you stride you have the ability to step over things that were setup to trip you. For example, a pot hole in the ground, you see it in advance, you are prepared to step over it in your stride. In your stride you must be able to make quick decisions and be able to adjust to change. Remember to always pray a covering over yourself and those you are dealing with each day. You never know how the enemy is working against you so you want to be prepared.


Stride with Confidence because you know God is in control. 
Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 
Keep the PACE!
Ecclesiastes 9:11
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.



Never give up!
2 Chronicles 20:17
Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.

Living Holy, Who said it was Easy...

 












In a conversation with another sister in Christ, the comment was made that living Holy isn't easy, because of all the sin in the world everywhere you go. Well, I can agree it is not easy especially for someone new in Christ. Many of us see people doing it everyday and you wonder, How do they do it ? or Do they ever get tempted?

Psalm 101:1-4

I will sing of mercy and justice;
To You, O LORD, I will sing praises.
2
I will behave wisely in a perfect way.
Oh, when will You come to me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3
I will set nothing wicked before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me.
4
A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know wickedness.

Yes, everyone gets tempted, but you do not have to give in to temptation. Even the devil tempted Jesus while he was fasting. And to say your never tempted isn't true, because we are flesh but everyone may not have the same temptation.  One person may not feel tempted in one thing while that same thing could be a temptation to someone else.

Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
We must learn how to rise above temptation and separate ourselves spiritually & naturally from ungodly things that will tempt us.

Ps. 37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

We might even have to release some friendships that seem to bring us back to the past we are giving up for Christ. Yes, that is hard, to give up years of friendships just to maintain a Holy lifestyle. I want you to know that God will send you friends with the same belief and thoughts as he and you. They will be people you can pray with, sing praises with, and enjoy God with them as well. You will no longer feel you have to hide your beliefs to keep a friend. If they are real friends they will respect your lifestyle change and not persecute you.


Sometimes it seems like your losing a lot but actually your gaining more than you can imagine.  

 Matt. 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Also to keep a solid foundation in Christ you must stay in your word. You have to keep reading the Bible and learning the steps to being like Christ. The Bible shows you how to live with sin all around you and be above it.  When you are feeling tempted to slip back, you will have the word of God hidden in your heart and able to repeat God's word in times of distress or weakness. You can even use it to help friends and family, you know will benefit from God's wisdom. 
 Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.


As women, we have to break free from ungodly relationships and not enter into relationships with gentlemen who look good but we know their not good for you.  The feeling of loneliness will try to come up on you but again you will rise above it. 
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Rise above your emotions. Rise above your flesh. Rise above and be lifted up. Why? Because you uplift the name of Jesus he will continue to elevate you!

1 Corinthians 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Jesus has been the best example of a disciplined person in life. If fasting was needed, He Fasted. Prayer needed, he prayed. Time to teach, he taught.  He was always quick to move when the word of God was given, spoken, and heard. When you read the life of Christ, you can see how important disciplined lifestyle is for men & women of God.


Proverbs 25:28  A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls.

Image is Everything...


My Vintage Looks
 When your coming to church...Image is Everything!

How you present yourself says something, the question is, What do you want to say? Many people debate this topic over and over again but I am not here to debate. I am here to educate. If you can wear the right apparel for job interviews than why not to church? And you can do as the employer ask in the dress code but find it offensive by the church to be asked to dress a certain way. Come on Women of GOD!

Proverbs 31:25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.  

  25Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!

As a young woman in the church and ministry, I have learned how to present myself to the body of Christ in order to be received, because my purpose/message is bigger than my attire so why debate over it? So, You haven't been to church in a while and if your like me you want to stay fashionable.

Remember when your getting dressed for church service that you are not going to the mall, kicking it with your friends, or school. You are going to church. This is the Kingdom of God and we must remember that when we are getting dressed for church.

For example, if you put on an outfit and your first thought is "Wow, this makes me look sexy" Sexy should not be your agenda when attending church. I am sorry. God does not want to know how sexy you can dress in his temple.

Nor does God want to know how great your legs look in heels so, please bring the skirt length down. I'm sorry. That is not why we come to church. We should not aim to be a distraction in the church. That is not our goal. Yes, your beautiful! You must believe that even without dressing that way in church. We are Queens and Princesses in God's kingdom and we should look that way at all times. What  I am saying is, you can look fashion trendy, holy, and acceptable to Jesus Christ all at the same time.


Everyone expects church to take you as you are even after you have come to the knowledge of what is right. It is just like a job, you might wear one thing and they tell you hey, the employer say no to that, be honest we will not wear it again. Why? Cause we want to keep our job but we feel that God gets what I give him. We should dress as royalty, clothing ourselves in righteousness and holiness. God should be the one shining through us.


One thing my Pastor always tells us, God will bring the conviction and change so, you do not have to tell people, you just walk in it and God will do the rest. When your really after God own heart, you will do it, cause your sincere about God but those of you who know better but do whatever, Lets do better for the King. It is all to the King.


Take value in your attire. Dress as a Virtuous Woman. Walk as a Holy woman.

Real Love...How do you know?






So How do you know?..... if it is well Real?!?!?!

It's  funny how you go to a restaurant and I, myself, love Coca Cola, and it puzzles me when asked by a waiter or waitress, What do you like to drink? I would say," well Coke" and they would say, " Pepsi?" or " RC?" as if there the same but it is not the REAL thing. It doesn't taste the same and the exterior isn't the same. It is more like the generic form of Coke. I do not take any substitutes or look-alike to the real thing.


One thing I have learned in my relationship with God is REAL love. Last, Sunday at church, God's loves overflowed the atmosphere and I felt his anointing shower love on me. This love can not be written about in movies, it is not scripted, or man made. His love sometimes feels unexplainable to those that have no relationship with him but yet we try day to day to help others understand this love is real.

His love is pure. It is without blemish. Just as our Worship to him should be. His love is without judgement but does come with rebuke, consequences, and order. Yes, God does let you know your going against his word and truth but he does it with grace and mercy.

Yes, his love does not lie. Unbelievable isn't it? With lies being spoken to you everyday and played out for you on television. You can trust him at his word. He left his word so we would have a resource to carry us along our journey with him and to try to bring an understanding of his love. His word is an example of his love.

His love is unconditional. He shares his love with you even when your undeserving. When you deny him or when you do not recognize who he is in your life and ignore his call out to you. He loves you! He showed us his love in giving his life then rose on the third day and he had not met you yet! But he did it. He did it for you and me, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, mom and dad.

His love is forgiving. He forgives but we lag in our forgiveness. We even come up with reasons why our UN-forgiveness is justified as if we can change but others can't. He laughs and we call ourselves one of his own. Yet, we can't let go of the past to SOAR in our future. Then we wonder why our blessings are held up because we blocked up with UN-forgiveness.

His love is action. We can see it. With every sun rise and every sunset, his love is visible to us so how can we question it? But we do. Was his death not enough? Was his pain not enough? He wakes you up every morning. That is his love in your face reflected through the mirrors. His love.

Real love is tangible. Real love is brings joy with every new day with HIM. Real love is roughing it through the storm together. Real love is not associated with abuse physical or mental. It is not forced but is given willingly.  That is why I willingly surrender to Praising him and Worshiping him in spite of everything else in the world. Real love requires communication. Real love starts in friendships.

Real love accepts you. Real love expects great works from you and works you; not against you. Real love has memories you can smile about the next day and years later. It is comforting. It isn't perfect but worked to perfection by the word of God.

Real love requires work. It is built on a solid foundation and let me tell you...God is the only ROCK I know! So, build on him, not on you, they, or them because when you build on him, you & him with God, will stand. When your sick, real love takes the time to get you back to health.

Real love taught by God can be exhibited in your smile, eyes, walk, talk and lifestyle. Real love doesn't separate you from family or friends buts draws you together through thick and thin but it can not dwell with sin.

Real love brings abundance, elevation, promotion, peace, joy, strength, endurance, health, faith, trust, and overflow.

Wait for God to teach you and show you his real love. His Fresh Holy Anointed LOVE.
You would never settle for any substitutes once you have surrendered to his Real love.


Be Blessed

I am a work in progress....

Yes, it is true,

I am a work in progress. I have not arrived to some ultimate level of superiority, that I do not make mistakes or have any faults.

 I am a work in progress. I am not there. Is anyone there? I mean there. It takes time and Christ to learn how to get past your flesh and people. The enemy is always looking for ways to attack you or if not you, someone near you is used to get to you but we must learn how to "step" over those emotional fleshly temptations.

I am a work in progress. I make mistakes.  I am being perfected right in front of your eyes through Christ as well as you are in front of me. You are watching me and I am watching you. Everyone is watching each other, concerned with them noticing there mistakes or slip-ups.

I am a work in progress. I am surrendering my will to the Father. He is molding me to his creation for his glory. His artistry is priceless and effortless but necessary in my growth. I was once bound to society, family, friends, and people but through him, I have found freedom to soar as an eagle. He is my only judge but I am to follow him and lead others to him.

I am a work in progress. I am making changes to my life everyday. I have changed my attire, my matter, my talk, my walk, and my friends. I have changed how I spend my time and whom I am spending my time with as well. I am changing the purpose behind my conversations; do God get the Glory or this just MY story?

I am a work in progress. I am no longer the tail. My eyes have been opened and no longer am I blinded by the glamour of the world. “Charmers” no longer fool me and I am now an encourager to myself. I am confident in him and I am bigger than they because of HIM.

I am a work in progress. I have access to greatness. I am royalty in his Kingdom and rich beyond your wildest dreams. A roaring lion does not scare me anymore, nor does a lying tongue because I am more than a conquer through Christ Jesus, I have my word with me, and his words carry all power.

I am a work in progress. I am no longer stubborn. For every argument I walk away from, God rises up in me, for every fight I turn away from, God rises up in me, For every apology I give and never ask why, God rises up in me, Every time I hold my tongue, God rises up in me.


I am His work in progress and His work In Progress I shall BE!

I am accountable to God. God uses me. I am a vessel for God and he is steadily working on me daily. Be patience for his works are breath taking and priceless.

It is his will that every need be supplied...

If it is God's will to supply and be the provider of all of our needs. Why do we fret? Why do we worry? Why don't we trust him at his word.

Philippians 4:19 (Whole Chapter)
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

Since his word says, he will supply our NEEDS not all our WANTS. Really, if we got everything we wanted, How would God get the glory? Would we appreciate the things we have or will we complain that it is not enough? Would we still Praise Him for his wondrous works?

I doubt it. I love the scripture because he says, according to HIS RICHES and Glory.  When you read the Bible, Jesus did not have luggage carrying it from town to town. He only had the clothes on his back. The way was provided for him and he had to trust and believe by Faith that was true. God said move, YOU MOVE. Some of us can't do that because we worried about these temporary items we have started to find joy in but you not always going to be a size 4,6 8, or 9 nor can you pack up your house everytime God commands something of you. You have to be prepared to walk by Faith and trust that the way will be provided for you when you walking in obedience.
When your walking by Faith your believing in who God is as The Creator, Alpha & Omega, and Beginning & the End.

So whatever it is God needs of you to do. DO it. Don't ask. Trust. Walk by Faith. Believe.

Deuteronomy 7:9 (Whole Chapter)
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; 


As I learned in church recently, a delay is not a denial..

 Hab.2And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
   3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

 Tarry: To delay or be late in going, coming, or doing


Be Blessed In the Lord, as you walk closer to him... Let your ways be pleasing in his sight and know that he is with you always! He will supply all your needs.

If it wasn't for my mother...

Smiles...Laughs....

If it wasn't for my mother...

My Mother. My Mom. My Mama. How ever you want to call her, she is the reason you are who you are and how you are today. Yes, fathers too but this is about my mother. Some people may take that in a negative way but don't. This was ordained and approved by God. Everyone has a mother, she is the one who bathe you, taught you, knows you, and God created her for you. She isn't perfect but as I always say, Who is? My mother always told me that they do not give a manual on how to be a mother and I would say, Nor do they give a manual on how to be a daughter.

My mother is a beautiful lady, full of laughs, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, character and substance. After studying the Proverbs 31 woman, I realized how much my mother was like her. As a child, she made everything fun even cleaning, yes she has always been a creative person. Everyone that meets her adores her just because she is always herself. She taught me how to be myself and accept myself. Even at a point in my life when I dealt with low self esteem. Surprisingly, I did not see the beauty I see now in myself. I did not recognize my natural beauty or the glory God placed on me but my mother always did.

Proverbs 1:8-9:
   8My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
   9For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

Mother..A hard job and responsibility. So many children being given up or taken a way from their parents because of treatment or their parents lifestyle. Thankful enough, I had a a mother that choose me over herself, her dreams, her goals, and her happiness. Instead, her dreams became me, her lifestyle became me, her thoughts were of my safety, and her happiness was found in my smile. My Mother, an amazing woman, strong independent, ambitious, encouraging, determine, God-fearing, and always making the impossible to others, possible.

If it wasn't for my mother who knows where I would have been today or doing. Yes, she was over protective, but she had to be with so much evil in the world. Sure, I did not get to go to all the events or everywhere my friends would go but I couldn't because she knew all along what was best for me as her daughter. Yea, we were not the Cosby's, but we were always a family. She made time for me even when she didn't have time for herself. My mother always telling me how I can do bigger and greater things. Always exposing me the finer things in life and supporting me in all my goals & dreams.

Passage Ephesians 6:1
 1CHILDREN, OBEY your parents in the Lord [as His representatives], for this is just and right.



If it wasn't for my mother would I have met God when I did. Who knows? She saved my life and presented eternal life to me by introduce Christ in my life. She always kept me in church and we were always participating in church activities. At first, I hated it, but as I got older  I realized everything she did was for my best. Her goal all along through Christ was to bring out my BEST! The best smile, my best efforts, the best works, and the best in everything I do. Never settling for average and low standards. She and Christ built a standard in my life that I just can't bring down the bar. She helped me deal with what I considered flaws and helped me cope with my own imperfections. No, she never thought I wasn't a great daughter but she instead of telling me cause I couldn't see, she showed me and now I see.

So yes, your mother is hard on you and expects more but that is because she knows your best. She knows you. God gave you to her and her to you. She learns you and you learned her. She is your blessing and you were her gift.  When I look and see the difference my mom makes in people's lives, it brings me joy, happiness, and honor. You should work hard to make your mom proud of you and her proud of herself. I have seen some daughter not give there mothers' respect, honor, and appreciation. Regardless, you have to obey mom even when you do not agree.

Passage Ephesians 6:2:
   2Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
    2Honor (esteem and value as precious) your father and your mother--this is the first commandment with a promise--(A)
 
 
Honor:
High respect, as that shown for special merit; esteem:
Good name; reputation.
Principled uprightness of character; personal integrity.

 I know some people have problems with their mother or the relationship isn't that great but life is short so to walk around with strife, unforgiveness, and anger against your parents. Any moment, Any day, and at any time they could leave you and would you really want to leave things where they are or move forward to a happier life with Christ.  If you need help to move forward, then seek help from a neutral party that has sound Godly advice. It is not about who is right or admitting fault, it is about accepting your responsibility in the relationship and letting it go to build it together again.


Ephesians 6:3
    3That all may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.


I love my mother! She means alot to me. I am thankful, that I can go talk to her, and she can come chill out with me. We can have lunch together and have meaningful conversation. We shop together and laugh together. I respect her and she respects me as her daughter. I am so proud of her and how she allow God to take over her life. She has been the best example to me.

Exodus 20:12:
   12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
She surprised me one day when she said how open I am to friends of all races. She said she was proud of me. I am thankful she taught me how not to judge a book by its cover but look beyond the cover and read the story. She taught me how to be friendly. The only reason she was able to be this great mother is because of God. He instructed her. She listened. She taught us ( me and my sister) all she knew and did her best so God could do the rest.
Matthew 15:4:
   4For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Love your mother! 
Appreciate your mother. She is yours. You are hers. Your each others. Enjoy each other.


I know I do. I love you mother!

Your worthy of MUCH more... So Why settle?

Waiting... Waiting... Waiting...


So your waiting for Mr. Right to find you, come, and sweep you off your feet, for the music to play as you go running on the beach or a field to each other. Magical right? Too bad life is not a pre-scripted movie. You do not know the next scene and that he is not Mr. Right. The emotions are not played out but their real. Your a real person with real feelings and it is not always a happy ending. Especially, when your doing it your way or on your own and when you settle for Mr. Right Now, Mr. Convenient, or Mr. A-Okay. Are you not worth the wait? Can you not wait for God to Bless you with his connection? Yes, you can!
Hebrews 12:2 
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;...
Your an amazing person. You have accomplished amazing things with God. Your independent, compassionate, and a blessing in the making. You are worth the best. So, why you keep settling for less? Yes, your waiting. Yes, it seems long and you can become impatient but you have come too far to just BE with someone just to past the time away. There is so much more you could be doing with your time and emotions. Waiting isn't easy especially when your young and it can be even harder as you get older. God blesses those that wait. 

Psalm 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 

Wait and let God connect you to your other half. Yes, society is always in your face telling you, "Your getting older, Life is passing you by, Your too picky, No one is perfect." Does that mean you have to lower your standards, ethnics, morals, and desires for someone who doesn't have the same faith as you? Noooooo.. God is the one who set the standards within you. He made you that way. He made you with high hopes, dreams, desires,and goals. He gave you ambitions. He enlarged your territory and built your faith in him. Only God can bring them down or take them away. Only you can let them go.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The virtuous woman...Her Price...
You can't buy her with material things. Though she looks like a million bucks. She loves the Lord with her whole heart. Yes, she walks as a queen but  has a heart of a servant. She strides with confidence and smiles with assurance. She dresses herself with a royalty appeal. Her hands are blessed. Anyone that knows her praises her character and personality. She is a blessing to her neighbors and friends. Her qualities are endless. She cooks, cleans, manages her house, has her own business, and makes her own money. If your not exhibiting these qualities, you better start to work on it now, because this is a lifestyle for her. Become that rare jewel that is worthy of the best that God has to offer.
 
In addition, fear is also a cause for settling. Fear of being alone. Fear of living alone. Fear of eating alone. Fear of never being loved or being in love. Fear, is always trying to remove your FAITH, trying to paralysis you and trap you but your bigger than that! God is bigger than that and stronger.Your worthy of much more.
 
Passage 1 John 4:4:
   Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

 Next you start to think, maybe its me, maybe I am the problem. Well if your exhibiting Godly character and substance then your not the problem. Let God prepare you for your spouse. It is in his word. Take your time to read the Proverbs 31 Woman. She is the example of a great leading lady.


Be patient as you wait. Be productive as you wait. Pray as you wait. Waiting isn't just sitting at the corner everyday looking for him to drop out the sky. You should prepare for him. How? By already walking and talking as a wife with Christ. Get involve in your local church and ministry. Start reading your Bible and join church organizations for women.  Stop sitting there making yourself miserable. Start making friends and spending time with them doing something positive in Godly fun. 

Never allow someone to use you, mistreat you, walk over you and lie to you. You are bigger, greater, and smarter than that. You know someone is no good for you yet you keep answering the calls, texts, emails, and facebook messages. Why are you checking their facebook to see if they have moved on? Come on now. Your bigger than that. Your worthy of much more.

Proverbs 18:22:
   22Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

A good thing. Let's define Good...
 morally excellent; virtuous; righteous;
of high quality; excellent;  honorable or worthy; in good standing;
reliable; dependable;  financially sound or safe;  not spoiled or tainted
cheerful; optimistic;  skillfully or expertly done; favorably regarded;   
profit or advantage; worth; benefit:
moral righteousness; virtue
 
So if your not a GOOD thing or a GOD thing, which I like to use, than how can you expect God to give you someone your not even worthy of having?
 
Proverbs 12:4 A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

Interesting...

Are you honorable to have? Are you skillfully done in your apparel, make-up, and image? Can you be well displayed as a crown or should you be hidden like decayed bones? 
And when people see you do they ever have anything good to say about you. Are you a good thing to have or not?  Does God speak highly of you? Well you should make sure he does since he is the one doing the divine connections.  I know there are many who believe that one person can't be meant for one person but I look at Adam and Eve. I only know Adam and Eve.

Genesis 2:18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

Remember when God is part of the connection the marriage is like a braid that no man can depart because God is in the middle of the connection. It is strong and solid. No, I am not saying there are perfect marriage because there are no perfect people but with God every shower won't be a storm and every whirl wind will be a breeze. Only if God is the source and connection in the marriage.

You are worthy of much more. You are worthy! Worthy!

~~Feel like Trouble on Every Side?

God woke me up EARLY this morning as usual with this topic...

Is there ever a point in your life when you feel you have trouble on every side?

 
Define Trouble:
to disturb the mental calm and contentment of; worry; distress; agitate.
to put to inconvenience, exertion, pains, or the like: 
to cause bodily pain, discomfort, or disorder to; afflict: 
to annoy, vex, or bother: 
to disturb, agitate, or stir up so as to make turbid, 
Dictionary.com


  Seems every phone call or text message is trouble, stress, depression, and affliction. Just some type of attack from the enemy. You feel like ever two steps you make to get ahead, it seems as if your kicked back five more steps by unforeseen circumstance.  You start to screen your phone calls and check your voice mail less.

Do not get weary in your well doing! God has not left you nor has he forsaken you. If you feel you have trouble on your right & you left, know you have grace & mercy with you as well. 
God's angels following you through every situation and trouble.


Hebrews 4:16:
  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Learn how to call upon the Lord at all times such as good times, bad times, and troubled times. In those moments, when you are confused on what to do, when to do and how to do it. 
Learn to seek God in everything and you will always be ahead of the game. 

Psalm 46

   1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
   2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
 


Sometimes as women, we carry someone else trouble, we just pick up there problems and make them our own. No one asked us to do it. We just do it. We're more worried about the outcome then the person in the situation. We are out trying to find solutions when their sitting at home waiting for the problem to solve itself. First, we must learn to....help the person pray for themself. Yes, it is ok to want to help and we as women all have a mothering nature within us and we want to mother adults. I learned, you will only make yourself miserable, trying to mother grown folks. People have to learn to depend on God and not depend on man or well you! So we must teach them how to go to God by going to God with them. 

Psalm 121

   1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
   2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
   3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
 


By doing so, we will help build their faith in God, and recognize he is all power. We must help other run to God for them self and not to us as life savers. God is this alpha and omega. He know our beginning, end, and middle. Sometimes we get in God's way with dealing with someone by always trying to take his glory in saving the day. How does God get his testimony if your taking the exam for them. In school, that is considered cheating, we are not allowed to cheat. 

Jer 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you;


Also, learn how to go to the bible for direction and answers. Allow God to be God. Let him do something, cause you can't do everything, he can do all things.  Build your relationship with God and help someone build their relationship with God as well.  In order to really know who God is and what he can do, you got to spend time with him and get to know him. Learn his will for your life through your relationship with him. He will even let you see what is really going on in the troubled times. Surprisingly, he will tell you what to do in those times as well. No it is not really a surprise, he is our father, he takes care of his children.

Psalm 33:20-22:
   20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
   21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
   22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.


Always believe God will take care of you, through every obstacle, trouble, affliction, confusing moment, unsure decisions, and every attack of the enemy. 
Psalm 22:19:
19But be not far from me, O Lord; O my Help, hasten to aid me!


God will take CARE of you! Trouble? God is the answer. So when trouble calls..CALL GOD!

Amazing Women Of God

- Dedicated to the Awesome Women of God that I am blessed to know! 



I just had an amazing time with some awesome women of God celebrating a birthday. As we sat together at the table, I looked at all their faces, their smiles, listen to jokes, and saw their personality show up in many different ways.  I thought to myself, this is the start of something BEAUTIFUL, because God is the center of attention.


 Women loving one another. Appreciating One Another. Uplifting one Another.
Supporting each other in Christ. 
All with their own identities in God and made him their friend first. 

That is the difference in Godly friendships. In order to build and have everlasting friendships in Christ you must befriend God first. He teaches us how to be good to one another and how to treat your neighbor as yourself.

 


Yes, we all come from different backgrounds, states, cities, and towns but when God is the common focus of your life the blend is flavorful. I laughed. Look at God! At work, right at this table, in each and everyone of us. All of us displaying his glory in this fellowship together. Everyone supporting each other, listening to each other, and allowing God to build an amazing unit with us and him. We are one body with many parts. We work together.





No one was dissing the other, no one envy of the other, no one mistreating the other but everyone looked forward to spending time together. 

Young women of God socializing together in such a positive way.

The valuable jewels God has hidden and kept to himself are these women of God and I am sure there are many more jewels out there but I can only talk about these few. I look around my church at the array of awesome women of God. God just keeps planting them and placing us together to glorify him. Each loving one another truly and sincerely.




 
God's glory is displayed through them in such a strong positive, pure, and amazing way. Each one is beautiful, created for & in God's glory. He gave them smiles like the sun shining on a summer day. Yes, you need shades. He blessed them with independence and the ability to stand against every obstacle that has came their way. He made them strong with delightful personalities. He gave his tender mercy and love & kindness to share with everyone they meet. He created feminine, thoughtful, God-fearing, saved, single, and prayerful women of God with a servants heart.

He blessed their hands with great talents and abilities. 
They are creative, ambitious, caring, giving, thoughtful, and loving women. 

 

God allowed his glory to shine around them every where they go so that their noticed without even trying. He planted his desires in their hearts and they seek him the more everyday. They look to God to plan their day. Their excited about him and his wondrous works in their lives. You can see the excitement for him in their lifestyle.






I am thankful just to know them. Just to be apart of their lives at this moment and time.      We as women must learn to appreciate each other and to not mistreat each other. No one is perfect but we are all working to perfection. Building Godly friendships is important in your walk with Christ. You now have a prayer partner, praise partner, and worship buddies.  

Iron sharping Iron.

Look at the jewels God has blessed you with and appreciate your blessings. I do!

Grow Up, Woman of God!

There is a point in every woman's life when she has to GROW UP! She has to make her own DECISIONS and choices. A point where she PLANS her life and  presents it to God. She LISTENS to God as she develops their goals. Yes, their goals!

 
There is point when she PRAYS to God for her relationships and friendships. She can not hide behind family or blend in with little sister/bro or BIG sister/bro.

Through prayer she develops her own identity, style, and personality. She is HONEST about her dislikes and likes and walks in INTEGRITY. She acknowledges faults and weaknesses while striving for perfection. She faces the fears and challenges of day to day life. Yes, the responsibility is great but so are the blessings.

At this point she gives God control of her life fully and accepts her destined purpose. She is more SUPPORTIVE and less argumentative. She is more understanding and more knowledgeable.  How profound is his glory, which hangs from her head and BLESSED are her hands, which she uses to bake bread. 

She realizes who she is and who she belongs too, God. She is no longer trying reach unrealistic expectations because God says, For I know the plans I have for you. When she thinks about her past, she knows how far she has grown from it, accepts her mistakes and failures, and she is able to FORGIVE and let go.

She is a woman of the now not the yesterday. She knows, hears, and sees everything that is going on around her. Sometimes, she can be strong willed and other times she is shy but she has learned to stand regardless.
She knows she can be hurt, she is human, not wonder woman or a super hero but she knows who to call to mend her broken heart.
At this point, she knows where her TRUST lays, who to tell her secrets to, and who she can depend on. God. Her loyalty lays in his FAITHFULNESS to her. Her life depends on his COMMITMENT to her.  

No more toying with her life and playing games. No more time wasted on relationships that do not give God praise.

A woman of excellence she will be, in her stride, her talk, her language and lifestyle. It is understood she is a goal worth pursuing and he calls her by name every morning. She recognizes his voice and answers with PRAISE! He is God.

She finds JOY in the simple things he created, from the sun & moon, to the sea & sky.

Now she knows, that this is the TIME, the point, the SEC, and minute, she must GROW UP! She must GROW UP!

Grow Up, Woman of God!
