Do you often have to figure out how you got back to this same place?
Are you experiencing feelings of discouragement and exhaustion.
Are you easily angred lately?
Are you often easily offended?
Are you short with your husband or children?
Are you in a poor disposition all in the name of Christianity?
Do you find yourself saying things that are damaging!
Ladies stop destroying your hope by repeating the lies of satan.
Let us be architectural wordsmiths forging right perspectives on the things that go on in our lives. Instead of demolitionist skillfully laying down the very things that will destroy our latest victories.
We are living in a time where we can not afford to lend our words and power to satan to exploit.
Don’t let your circumstances get you to repeat the wrong things in your home. Don’t be the vessel to tear down your own home with your own hands.
Remember ladies what the Bible says-
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.
Proverbs 14:1 ESV
Remember who you serve ladies. The Lord God Almighty the Lord God mighty in battle.
Our words can be like seeds for life or envenomed drops of poison.
When you make service in your home transactional you lose the whole purpose of why you do what you do.
Serve your husband and children out of pure love and devotion to Jesus Christ and appreciation for what God entrusted to you.
Watch your mouth. Take notice of what you say most often. See what you let escape while frustrated, sick or scared. Is it discouraging, self- depreciating lies dressed up as truths? It is the list of all the ways you’ve fallen short in the day?
Is what is rehearsed stealing, killing, and destroying things in your life?
The answer is found in you coming clean before our almighty God then applying the scriptures to your life.
Don’t be ignorant of the devils devices ladies.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 ESV
Submit to God and allow the Word of God to heal you and allow your words to match your confession of Christ and Christianity.
There is blessing in community ladies so reach out to another sister and fight to stay connected. Be encouraged to trust God cry and repeat God bless you.
An attractive, alluring seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.
This is the way of the culture and world.
Weaponized Femininity and Womanhood examples includes but not limited to:
(The Stallion, Beyonce, Kardashians and Cardi B mentality. All are synonymous with Harpy and Jezebel behaviors. )
They use sex and provocative clothes to seduce men and women and children. They have a wide influence of perversion. Have you noticed the increase in porn consumption, infidelity, premarital sex, homosexuality, and sexually transmitted disease.
Women like these and many less obvious examples lay and wait to sink their teeth in to their unsuspecting prey. They wear fake smiles as they manipulate and run churches world wide from a distance. All under the disguise of faux submission. You know who you are!
These distorted examples of womanhood are lies waiting to be torn down.
We are living in a proud lascivious world and this is one of the many hurdles we must address and dismantle.
I want to encourage you to do your part to break the cycle of cultural nonsense including femme fatale, immodesty, lack of discretion, and impurity.
I also want to caution you not to follow trends. One trend for example is to put your family on the internet. And I don’t mean posting something that has to do with your family. I mean you get to have a very intimate look into the lives of complete strangers. The more you see the more they get paid to show. Please stop putting your whole lives on the internet.
This is a subtle and seductive lure to show more and more until you become an influencer worthy of its hire.
Think about who can see your updates and life events. Then imagine the huge population of perverted people indulging secretly in your life. Gross right?
Protect your families at all costs.
Ladies, another push back and active fight against the darkness of this age is to refuse to raise “maneaters. The “I don’t need a man,” “I can do bad all by myself mentalities.”
It is femme fatale indoctrination of our young daughters. Girls who were entrusted by God to care for and raise to love, serve, honor, and obey God.
I’ve seen online were women dress proactively parading around with their young toddlers in matching outfits. Grooming their own children to show their bodies and walk to entice men. It’s sickening
The Bible warns in- Matthew 18:6
New King James Vebrsion
6 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Is another form of weaponized femininity. It happens with the ,withholding of nurturing, lacking to develop emotional connections, hugs, and more. All due to anger, frustration, or, past traumas from your childhood.
Fight against it!
Another area is-
Using Your Body Against Your Husband
Random flash back–
I was at work a long time ago when I worked outside of the home. I work at a local pharmacy.
A woman came in and asked for me to help her find something. She started divulging that it was her husband’s birthday coming up and she planned to be intimate. She stressed since it was his birthday. I was dumbfounded. How in the world can you survive being intimate only a time or two a year?
I sadly get told things from strangers that say I’m easy to talk to.
Sex regularly with your husband should be the norm.
Your body belongs to your husband. Its a tool of torture. If you lord over him with it. Give to you your husband what is his!!!!! Satisfy him so that your husband doesn’t find supplements.
Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 1 Corinthians 7:5 ESV
It is attractive to men to see a woman take care of herself. Walk, hit the gym regularly, do jumping jacks, etc.
Taking care of yourself is a turn on ladies. Genuine non- competitive care of yourself helps marriages.
Conditioning your body regularly for health and not for extra marital lure.
Holiness and Biblical Womanhood and Femininity is not a way of living for older women, it’s for all women in all walks of life. Teach your daughter to submit, and obey Christ so she will one day submit to their husbands.
Teach your daughters to clean and cook. Teach your daughters not to use her tears, body, and meals to manipulate a man. Feminism’s poisons have been ingrained into life so much so fight against it with all you have and all you are.
Spoiler alert the ” I’m an independent woman I don’t need a man attitude. Is an example of another destructive mindset. The I can do anything a man can do attitudes are just not Biblical. Biblical womanhood is the standard not all these warped societal norms need to be stopped.
God has given us everything we need to be protected from the schemes of Satan. We fall prey when we negate to put on the whole armor of God. Or chose not to have active faith.
As we find ourselves going the world’s way.
Ephesians 6:10-19 ESV
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:10-19 ESV
Another area to cover is-
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
Don’t scoff at correction
A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise. Proverbs 15:12 ESV
The wise woman builds her house [on a foundation of godly precepts, and her household thrives], But the foolish one [who lacks spiritual insight] tears it down with her own hands [by ignoring godly principles]. Proverbs 14:1 AMP
Weaponized Commitment Too busy screams-Quantity over quality
Weaponized Womanhood regarding commitments also prioritizes activities over family togetherness and puts God dead last if in the equation at all.
Weaponized Commitments also is in the elevation of our desires. Our desires shouldn’t be put above what God desires for you. Don’t allow your days to be too full of meaningful time with the Lord, with your husband/family, or for you to get recharged.
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 ESV
Biblical Wives Don’t Degrade
You are trusted with the most intimate parts of your husband’s life. You should take this position seriously. You should not take advantage of this position to use it to tear down your husband or family.
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. Proverbs 14:1 ESV
Titus 2:1-5 ESV
I am absolutely tired of it seeming like the older women are to be discarded in churches instead of honored and listened to. We are not obeying scripture if we are not looking to the older women for instruction, wisdom, and practical application of our day to day tasks.
Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me”
Lord God, evil is seductive and relentless however we know you are our protection in this fallen world. As the world gets darker let your light get stronger even brighter Lord, we are here for such a time as this, and I pray for you to cleanse our hearts and minds in your name Jesus. Let us not conform to the patterns of this world Lord. Help us detox from the worlds ways in Jesus name. Amen.
As we go into a month of prayer next month. I want to hopefully give a glimmer of hope through remembering the goodness of God.
I had a wrestling of sorts lately between not truly understanding how to figure out the next step in some areas of my life and overly focusing on things I can’t control.
My deepest desires are to please God in every area of my life. I know a few areas where the surrendering hasn’t happened because of the fact that my death grip prevented it. That is until today. I was encouraged to look back and remember.
Many times life does what it does and seems to give us some spiritual amnesia. Forgetting what our Almighty God has already triumphantly done.
What can’t God do?
Ladies, don’t lose heart.
Psalms 27:13-14 NKJV
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!
I have seen the Lord show out in my life. I choose to remember. The almost 19 years of marriage. Experiencing God healing my body from several major illnesses. Allowing the news it was physically impossible for me to conceive be reversed as I found out that I was pregnant with our oldest child. I’ve experienced God providing food while making our last meal that was in our fridge and giving our baby most of it all to have a friend surprise us with something to eat. Seeing our oldest in the hospital declining and they doctors saying there’s nothing left to do. Then God turned it completely around. I remember being at the hospital as they tried to convince me that I was miscarrying. This was followed by 8 more months of he’s not viable then being born with no health issues and is healthly and almost 12 years old. I experienced God reverse a permanent procedure which allowed us to conceive our youngest. I experienced God deepen my faith as He held us as we heard she needs surgery or she’ll die. The surgery could kill her as well.
So many things to reccount too many for this short time.
He then miraculously keeping her and us through surgery. Keeping life together through her heart surgery and then bringing her off of life support after being on it for 5 days.
Remember how Christ saved you and kept you.
How He Loved you when you were in some of the worst times of your life. Also how He held me through the losses of loved ones including losing three children.
With Christ the impossible becomes possible!
Matt. 19:26 says
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 NKJV
Remember ladies !
Draw up God’s resume’ and see that He’s more than capable of handling any situation that comes up in your life.
Ps 91:1-6 says
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
Psalms 91:1-6 NKJV
Don’t let what you see limit how far God can take you .
I’m reminded of a scene from Facing the Giants where the boy said he couldn’t carry a teammate to the desire location by the goal post because the person was too heavy to carry. The coach blindfolded him and told him to keep going and every time it seemed like he was going to give up he kept saying this:
An important fact to start with is this… if people can be caught up in a spirit of fear they can be easily controlled.
Lets dive in!
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 ESV
Denouncing the spirit of fear
Hidden Fear can be exploited by the enemy.
He wants to blackmail you.
This is why truthfulness is important!
Truthfulness takes his options down to none.
Dont give him any ammo to use against you.
Fear paralyzes you. If you aren’t moving forward how can you accomplish what Christ has set out for you to do?
The truth of God’s Word sets us free.
Truth frees us in ways nothing else can.
Know your Word ladies!
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35-39 ESV
Words to live by!
I heard a helpful hint this weekend that I want to share.
Don’t start with your problems… start with the Word of God
Word of God should be the very thing we filter everything in our life through!
God is love
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
1 John 4:18 ESV
There is no fear in the presence of God!
Matt 10:28And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28 ESV
I want to stress that satan is the father of lies. He is not to be trusted.
Father of lies….
1 Sam. 17:45-46
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
1 Samuel 17:45-46 ESV
Fear is a Liar!
The light of the Lord extinguishes darkness
When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes,? it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord.
Psalm 27:2-6 ESV
When anxiety, depression, and complacency occurs * Lean on the Lord.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4 ESV
He is the sav that heals through and through to the uttermost parts
Solutions for us all:
More of Jesus
Read the Word of God
Apply it to your life
Obey the Lord
Give Him access to all of you no matter how dirty you think it is.
What is your confidence in?
Let it be in the Almighty God !
What stirs up your affections for the Lord?
After a busy productive week the day had come to enjoy my son’s 1st Christian theatrical performance.
The enemy kept trying push me into fear to steal and destroy things in my life. He kept pushing the thought that I wouldn’t make through the end of the day. This was 5 days ago by the way.
I had to resist the devil so he would flee.
I had the choice to listen and give life to his lies or do as in 2 Cor. 10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6 ESV
Ladies, all you that are blood bought believers remember that no form of evil including the Antichrist can ever prosper against the power of Jesus Christ.
so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:10-11 ESV
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:13-14 ESV
I want to encourage you ladies to wait with anticipation on the Lord.
Use the Word to repeat and rehearse. Don’t give your God given power and authority to satan to exploit and misuse.
Reach out to someone this week because we all need fellowship and accountability.
Always remember to trust God as you cry and repeat God bless you.
The Tug of war between feminism and Biblical Womanhood can end when we sever the rope.
Let’s rebuild from the ruins, educate, and equip women to raise our daughters and son’s to live Biblically.
Sever the rope series: Make Dinner wage War
There are a few statements to get off my chest deep breath here goes. There is no such thing as Christian Feminist! Words mean things so stop using word salads. Every single life matters to the Lord. A woman is easily defined and is cdnot something you can just decide to be one day.
Todays topic had me pondering why we seem to be content with just an occasional push back of Feminism. It soon turns into an all out game of tug of war. This has continued for decades but now is the time to stand united Biblical Women and sever the rope, waging good warfare as we take care of our families.
Are you ready to make dinner wage and war? This topic is so near and dear to my heart because it encompasses so much:
Submission The sanctity of life Homemaking Discretion Fertility Modesty Fitness Overall Health Community Education Beautifying Multiplication And so much more………
Some scripture that needs to be shared comes from 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 ESV
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
As woman of God we are to protect the vulnerabilities shared in our homes. We can not allow the culture to violate what the Lord has blessed us with.Waging good war is living biblically which actively exposes the toxic grip of Feminism on Christian Women. Every meal, every lesson, every hug, and ever ounce of love all good warfare. It sets our eyes and intentionality on the way God’s instructs us to live. This good warfare helps us teach our children how to see the tricks of satan while equipping them to silence the lies of satan. Sound familiar? All book titles of mine. Now is the time because the world is relentlessly finding ways to expose them to darkness. Desensitization Witchcraft Distractions Immorality Rebellion Selfishness
All being pushed while anxiety, depression, insecurities, body positive slogans, self- love, pro-murderous, melanin worshipping ideologies get ingested like vitamins as deception courses through our veins. Now is the time and today is the day to denounce the past and lay down all for the cause of Christ. Ladies the Lord is soon come why risk missing out on the promise land? 2 Tim 3: 1-5
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV Remember always to trust god cry repeat god bless you and if you are on Subscribe to my website TrustGodCryRepeat.com you will be Able to see an actual recipe our family loves that you can try for your family.
