3 John 1:3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.
3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

Sometimes society makes it seems like choosing the way of the world is easier and more fun and more exciting . However , society does not discuss the consequences that come with sin . Romans 6:23 breaks this down so well. You can have so much fun with God . You can go on walks with your friends , enjoy the parks , dinner dates , and enjoy shopping as well . And guess what ? You can do this without sin. Today find fun activities with your family and friends that glorify God and not this world .

Walk In Truth ,

Matthew 10:33English Standard Version

33 but (A)whoever denies me before men, (B)I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

*** 

In Matthew 4 Jesus was in the wilderness and the devil presented him with so many different opportunities. Opportunities of money , fame , and fortune all if he just worshiped the enemy . Of course Jesus said no (to God be the glory ) . 

But see the enemy is subtle and sometimes when people do things to us to hurt us we want to get them back . For example , what if you have a spouse who is cheating on you ? What if someone you love betrayed you and now you want revenge ? 

Well the answer is STAY RIGHT WITH GOD . 

~ don’t cheat back because you have been cheated on 

~ don’t curse back because someone has cursed at you 

~ sometimes don’t argue back because someone is trying to make you angry … 

Stay Right With God ! 

I know your flesh may be saying one thing … but align your body to the word of God … 

*many are the afflictions of the righteous …. but the Lord delivers us from them all . – Psalms 34:19

Prayer

Father even when people mistreat me… help me to stay right with you . Help me to make better decisions and not to allow the enemy to take me off course . Help me God to follow you with my whole heart . In Jesus Name, I pray … Thank God … Amen

Isaiah 40:31King James Version

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

*** 

Social media can cause a lot of comparison in our lives . I mean it is so easy to compare our journey , destiny , and our calling with someone simply by appearance . I want to remind you that people have a tendency to post only what they want you to see . On the bright side you don’t see the blood, sweat , and tears that people put into their success. On the other side you don’t see the silent persecutions , betrayals, storms, trials , and tribulations that they go through . Today instead of comparing yourself ENCOURAGE yourself . Speak positive affirmations and scriptures over yourself and trust God totally and fully for your prayers to be answered . In Jesus Name !

Free From Pain

1 Chronicles 4:9-10Amplified Bible

Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; but his mother named him Jabez, saying, “Because I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would indeed bless me and enlarge my border [property], and that Your hand would be with me, and You would keep me from evil so that it does not hurt me!” And God granted his request.

When you become a parent, your eyes will be opened to a whole other world. Another world where you realize that your decisions impact your child and yourself as well. When it is just you and bad decisions become a lifestyle, it can be easy to numb the pain. However, when you give birth you realize that some pain cannot be numbed but it must be addressed. That means some relationships have to end, some tears have to be shed, and some lessons have to be learned to provide a better life for your child. Painful decisions that lead to victory seem bleak in the beginning… but in the end the Lord will bless you. When I became pregnant with my daughter the doctor’s told me to terminate her because I would die if I carried her full term. Not only that , people persecuted me and I had no support. My mother’s day was lonely and the pain that I endured cannot even be described. But now, when I look at my daughter Ruth I can say that it was all worth it. Today… view today as your new Mother’s Day. Make the decision that even if it hurts… you will make better decisions for your child or children.

Prayer

Father, help me to rely on you and not toxic relationships. Keep me safe in your arms and away from all hurt, harm, and danger. In Jesus Name, I pray… Thank God, Amen.

Loving Your Child After The Break-Up

Modern Day Truth

Social media makes it very hard to maintain a healthy relationship. With so many women exposing their bodies online, it gives easy access for a man to entertain his lust and fleshly desires. Many times this can lead to infidelity and a broken heart . Also, for some women it leads to being a single mother.

I do not believe that as a single mother it is wise to wait to come to God. Honestly, I believe that some single mothers should come to Jesus as soon as (or before) they find out that they are pregnant with child.

Woman To Woman

I know the pain of being a new single mom. I know what it feels like to pick up your own pieces (by God’s grace) and to move forward. Honestly, for me personally I went into labor in a relationship and left the hospital out of one. So it is safe to say that I get it. But one thing I will not do , is resent my child for the error of her father. I charge other women to do this as well.

As a mother we have the authority to break generational curses off of our children. We have to make the decision to love our children regardless of what happens with their parent.

Psalms 127 tells us that children are indeed a reward from God. I know my daughter Ruth is. She is my miracle baby. I love her so much.

If you are a new single mom, guess what ? You are not alone. Wipe the tears from your face… Get your Bible.. Pray… and fight.

Fight for you and the child to have a better life.

Fight for your peace and your sanity.

Fight to love your child unconditionally..

And fight to get right with God.

Time Is Of The Essence

We know that Jesus is coming soon. It is time for us to stop sinning (as single mothers) and it is time for us to change. It is time for us to be an example to our sons and daughters… It is time for us to be the essence of redemption. So I pray for you guys and myself tonight. That God will give you the strength to make it through the storm. Hold on to the Bible and hold on to the Word of God. No weapon formed against you shall prosper.

LETTING GOD HEAL YOU AFTER A BROKEN ENGAGMENT

Letting God Heal You After A Broken Marriage Engagement

1 Peter 3:7

New Living Translation

Husbands

In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

**

Hey Guys..

After praying about this I felt the Holy Spirit tell me that this is a topic that I needed to write on for both name her woman and abundance of peace. For a few months now I have not necessarily written articles.. I have been constantly posting Bible verses… and there is nothing wrong with that. But I believe that God told me to do this and to share a little of my story.

God Told Me To Let Him Go

Honestly… I never wanted to be married. I was not one of those girls growing up who desired or dreamed about becoming a wife or mother. That never was something that I wanted or needed. But I never really had trouble getting a “man”… but I did have toxic relationship troubles..

Constantly, in my relationships I continued to come across the same issue.. Men wanted me, my body, my beauty, and how I looked… but they did not want Jesus. Which means they want me to be one way at church and “pretend” like I am holier than thou there… but when I go home they wanted me to become someone else that satisfies there lust issue.

The Inner War

Yes… I have made bad decisions with relationships… who hasn’t …but… it gets old.. Bad decisions get very old and very tiring. Our generation is very entitled. They believe that they can hurt , be evil, and mean to people… and we’re just supposed to put up with that ? No.. That’s a fantasy not reality..

I began to have a inner war with in me.. I could feel God telling me that this engagement was not going to last… I could feel God telling me that I made a mistake.. that I just had to listen to Him and trust Him.. and He would deliver me.

Basically…

I made the decision not to get married…. And this is why…

  1. If someone has a lust problem.. I cant fix that.. only God can. Deliverance needs to take place.
  2. Little comments of someone saying you’re to “old, boring, or a grandma” can lead to bigger problems with men … Sometimes it’s a small hint that they desire a woman who is sexually inappropriate and more provocative than you.
  3. If someone makes fun of you because you’re a Christian by calling you a “nun”… well maybe they are not really for you…..

I Cannot Change The Fact That I Love God

Ending an engagement hurts… it really does. But if this is your story it is going to be ok. Sometimes when you continue to let people hurt you, make you cry yourself to sleep, lie to you, and make fun of you… they go further and further to hurt you.

Toxic relationships are not healthy. The enemy is trying to make toxic people the new normal… but I rebuke that in the Name Of Jesus ..

Toxic people have to understand that no one has to put up with them… Period.

I pray for people/women… who heart’s are broken right now because they are not getting married to who they thought would be their forever…

Personally

**This is for adults**

God gave me a promise that my husband would be a AMAZING man of God. Which means…

  1. He doesn’t make rude comments because I love Jesus (calling me a nun, grandma, or old woman).
  2. He loves me for me.. I don’t have to dress provocative for him to want me…
  3. He wont cheat on me (such as text other women, lie about being married, or watch pornography).

God Has A Special Plan

I know that God has a special plan for whomever I am destined, purposed, and led by Jesus to marry. I also believe that God has this same plan for you. You just have to trust Him like I did… even if it hurts.

Prayer

Father, I pray that you personally intervene and heal everyone who is crying themselves to sleep over a bad relationship. I pray that you give them beauty for ashes. I pray that you wipe away every tear from their eyes. I pray God that you introduce yourself as ABBA… Our King… Our Savior.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Romans 8:15

New Living Translation

15 So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.[a] Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”[b]
