"I'm Still Standing"

Ephesians 6:14, "Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness."

If you plan to make it in this life, ladies we are going to have to be strong and stand even when you don't feel like it. People have become mean spirited and spiteful and they don't want others to get ahead if it leaves them behind. After having done all to stand, continue to stand. Life is hard, but you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! Every day that God gives you life, walk and speak in truth and do righteous by those who do wrong by you.Your character will always speak for you in your silence and in spite of how things get, stay grounded and rooted in the Word of God. God is for you, so it doesn't matter who comes against you-you just stand.

"I'm going to get through this."

Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."

Ladies, as you prepare for the week ahead, I encourage you to be strong and of good courage.  No matter what you are having to endure, you are going to get through it! Life has a way of bringing us down, but find hope in knowing that God is standing by to lift you up! Everyday will not be sunshine, but that will not hinder God's Reign over your life. Sometimes you may find yourself lonely, upset and feel like nobody truly understands the level of hurt you are having to endure. That's normal and in those times lean on Jesus and trust God's Word that has been spoken over your life from your mother's womb. Girlfriends may leave, but God will never depart from you. He alone will go with you to the end of your journey and through the doors of your destiny. Stay focused and know that in spite of what comes against you, God will always be for you. Have a blessed week!

"I Know Who God Said I Am"

Genesis 2:18, "And the Lord God said, "It is not good that man should be alone, I will make him a helper comparable to him."

Ladies, always know what you bring to the table as a Woman of God and be humble enough to serve at the table. In this society, we have many women who have not been taught who they are in Christ and they don't have a clue to what they bring to the table because they haven't been taught their worth nor value. As a Woman of God, you are afforded opportunities and blessings just by being connected to God! God said it's not good for a man to be alone, that tells us that we are worth far more than rubies and we have the responsibility to comfort and cultivate our husbands and the men in our lives. That's an honorable position to have and don't ever take it lightly. God didn't make man BETTER than us, He made us a BLESSING for him-there is a difference. Be blessed and be a blessing!

"Woman Arise"

Matthew  17:7, "But Jesus came and touched them and said, "Arise, and do not be afraid."

Ladies, we have entered a new month and by now we should have a clear understanding of what we are going to stand for and what we will not tolerate. You have nothing to be afraid of when Jesus is the center of your life. People will always have something negative to say, but Jesus will always speak life over your life! If Jesus has truly touched you, others will not be able to easily get under your skin. It is time for us to move forward, arise and do what God has called each of us to do. Let's not spend another second twiddling our thumbs about what we could have or should have done. Allow the God in you to arise! Fear is not of God, you have everything inside of you to get to the other side. Be blessed and be a blessing!
