Does it seem like discouragement is lurking outside your door? Or your best efforts get foiled by the endless drama life serves up on a silver platter. In the middle of a trying time today I stopped and prayed then I said Lord if everything was perfect here on earth we would hate to leave here. I waited until later to truly digest this truth. I hope my perspective is forever changed. How much more peace would I have if I looked at my newest challenge or chaotic interruption as me being entrusted with it because God trusts me to give Glory through it rather than something else shoveled on top of everything else. Too many complaints have flowed out my lips lately. I have chew on this concept for a bit and prayerfully allow it to reshape my life. LADIES, What you do matters! You are loved by God and are created to bring Him Glory. If no one said it today, I love you ladies, and keep doing what you are doing. It takes a Biblical husband and a Biblical woman to train theses kids up in the way they should go. Also, remember to Trust God as you Cry and Repeat. God bless you.
Peeling back the layers on this journey to a healthier me. I realized that one thing will remain the same no matter what I lose and this is not a slam post or negative type post. I just realized that one side of my face will already be be a little larger. Let me explain.
I plan to confront every insidious trick of the devil to pick apart my imago dei confidence. At 18, I started training under my Sensei James Hall. Some of of you ladies caught that.
I was training with this ex- football massiveness of guy. I didn’t know much about sparring(fighting)with a partner. I did not not know about it being less intense than a real fight. After my opponent kept stating to my Sensei that I was kicking too hard I tried to pull back on my intensity, and then my innate “gracefulness” kicked in. He kept flinching bringing his knee up to block me and I slipped on the mat allowing me face to unite with his knee then my face joined in matrimony with the floor mat beneath.
It hurt so badly and I was immedietly unable to open it very far quickly starttng to swell. I went the next day to get x-rays and you guessed it, it was broken! But in a place where if It got it wired shut it would actually make it worst. So, it healed the way it did, and now the enemy the enemy has less ammo to use against me.
Maybe you and your little angels have adjusted to every ebb and flo of things during the last 6 months. Oh, but Mine haven’t. My older & little ones have been on high alert! Hyper sensitive to the on going stresses that seemed to pour in lately. Most interactions were like if you grabbed a cat quickly and tried to shove it in a sink full of water. It was a challenge not to come in like a mommy TSUNAMI; then I saw light at the end of the tunnel. After some stern come to Jesus moments we incorporated so very practical things and the ……………………………………………………….Rock /Paper/Scissors game !!!!!!!! It has blissfully cut down arguments and solved the endless “I know buts,” and the “I was just” moments are at an ALL TIME LOW LADIES!!!!!!! God is sooooooo good all the time!

It’s time to expose darkness and let our light shine ever more brightly. It’s time to silence the sirens of our day that our contaminating our youth. Music has gotten vile. Filthy women parade around half dressed and sing,rap,and signal with tweets and bird calls and our youth go marching and singing right along with them as they offer themselves as a mouth piece of satan. SIRENS:” One of several sea nymphs, part woman and part bird, who lure mariners to destruction by their seductive singing.” Take it away and watch the heartbreak and hostility. She them search for identity and lead them to JESUS! And see their lives change for the good. See them cover up their bodies that God made for their husbands and see them speak in ways that are respectful instead of n***a or b***h or other. This music is vile. Let’s find truth in the Word of God and stop just marching along to the sirens of this age promoting sex before marriage, unwed pregnancy and filthiness instead of classiness. Turn to Christian music genres Christian rap not hip hip. Christian rock ect whatever genre that is Christian and see some amazing changes. Challenge young ladies to be disgusted by filthy photos instead of secretly being lured into homosexuality. Real women stand up and say something.
It’s not just one genre of secular music. It’s all of them. If it’s not Christian why put it in you? Don’t be the person bringing the filth in your own home.
During prayer, I was hit with something that changed me forever. Ladies, It all started with a baffling question. I wondered why the enemy always makes women feel bad about things that take a long time to fix. For example it takes the longest time to lose but I can gain it in record time. Or grow hair, thin out hair, cut hair or thicken hair. You get the point. I was stuck for a minute until the Lord explained the true motive of the devil. He gets us fixated on the toe that’s a little longer than the other one, or the aging skin on your neck or the thigh roll or lack there of. It just doesn’t look like the world’s standard of “beauty.”It’s a long game distraction. If he can get us to dislike as many things as possible about ourselves we will eventually avoid being in pictures with our friends and family members; We would avoid speaking up because people might see those same imperfections; We would avoid intimacy with our husband if possible (devil is a liar) We would avoid encouraging other women, and eventually avoiding the mirror because we hate seeing our own reflection. We would then invite guilt and shame come on in and take a seat! At first I was just agreeing with all that he had attempted with me when I was saw the now clear objective. He does not create those avenues of shame and fixations because we are so flawed,unattractive, or so far below the standard of Beauty. It is God’s standard that matters anyway, but it is because we are Imago Dei, made in the image of God.! If you detest yourself enough you will forget to remember this fact. This blew me away. It made so much sense. God did not create just 1 perfect size or shape because it would only be that one size or shape. The scriptures say man looks at the outer appearance but God looks at the heart . This is the last part of 2 Cor. 5:12. I am not jumping on any platform that negates the necessity to be healthy. Health is important. Self-Control is important. I am screaming this clear message through these written words. I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE, AND YOU ARE TOO!!!!! So, tear up the mental list of body parts you hate, and check your heart. Check it before you go into spiritual cardiac arrest. Dying to truth and living our the lies that how God made you biological Biblical woman are good enough! You ARE A MASTERPIECE NOW GO FREE!!!!!!!
So tired of being ostracized for not being in a worldly monolithic mentality. The Lord is soon to come, and if the devil can reek havoc; I can stand in my small way praying to my BIG GOD AND WAIT FOR MY SAVIOR’S RETURN!!!!!!!!
I had to share. It’s not just girls. It is women of all ages. Music, media, and Culture seem to be influencing the Christian and none a like. I was blessed with a dad who had no filter when it came to what I was not going to wear, say or do. I wasn’t going to be talking to boys on the phone. I was not leaving the house half dressed or sitting around the house that way either. I wasn’t wearing fake nails, and he hated when I tried to wear weave. It set me up to know I had worth, and value. I did not need anything additional to be loved, or beautiful, I was wife material, and nothing less. This was is in my pre-Christ days. In 2002 I gave myself to the Lord. I found a love that I thought died with my dad in 2001. Thanks to my upbringing, @exministries, and my now husband of 16 yrs @herostuffbro we heard about the Truth Behind Hip Hop. This helped cultivate what my dad instilled. The world wanted our eyes, ears, and mouths to promote the world and worlds way. We chose to promote the Lord in every area of our lives instead. We threw away all secular music, and stepped into correct creation roles. Christian music only! Gods way only! Parenting for God’s Glory Only!!! We chose and still choose not bow to the immodest dressing, immoral secular music, or passive parenting. To God be the Glory.
In a time where fear is HIGH, and weariness is easy to put on. Never stop trusting God. If you are going to do distancing, distance yourself from your past. If cleansing your hands is the focus cleanse your hands from all unrighteousness like James 4:8. If you decide to cover your face let it be because the very thought of the goodness of God has made you fall to your knees crying out as you remember none of this has taken Christ by surprise! Soon those who remain will SEE HIM FACE TO FACE.
