Decapitated

Whenever you see a single mom and kids that are acting out of control, its because they are. They are simply missing the head(man) from the body. 1 Corinthians 11:3~ "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."

Nothing can function without the head!! Any animal that has its head cut off goes into a chaotic frenzy; running wildly, falling over things, stumbling over itself before it lays dead. This is also the chaos that families are in without its head. This frenzy manifests itself in many ways; partying, self medicating with alcohol and drugs, kids acting out, fighting with peers, etc... 

It is not God's desire for women to be left alone to fend for themselves and their children as they are the weaker vessels. They are vulnerable to the enemy's attacks; spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Remember, the goal is to cut off the head and the end result is death.
Genesis 2:18 says, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." But that also works both ways! Proverbs 18:22 says, "Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD." 

Families are under attack and need to stand united against the enemy!! We need men to take their place as the head of the households and women have to allow it to take place. This is not to say that all will be perfect, but so that God can stand with the family! Ecclesiastes 4:12~Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Pimps in the Pulpit

Buildeth Her House's photo.

There is an epidemic of men in ministry who are pimping from the pulpit. Ministers, clergy, music directors, etc. are leading many a women to bed instead of to the bible....Some men in ministry are treating the ministry as their own personal harem of concubines.

Ladies, Matthew 7:6 says, "Do not give what is holy to dogs." And some men in ministry are barking! Remember, if you lay down with dogs, you'll rise with flees. Are you scratching? The scripture also says, "don't cast your pearls to swine." Let's not continue to play in the mud with pigs and expect not to get dirty.

We have to close our legs and open our bibles so that we can resist, or break free from sexual sin. Let's not ride that train straight to hell behind a false prophet. And if you're not sure if he is a false prophet, then remember this, if he's trying to sleep with or or has slept with you, that's a hint and a half! 

Men in the ministry, I'm asking that you pull up your pants, push down your ego and be about the business of the Lord. Don't just preach about it, be about it!! Get your flesh under subjection, resist the devil and he shall flee.

Fasting and prayer are ways to have freedom from the past and to walk toward your glorious future. Even if it was yesterday, that's still the past. Both men in ministry and their participants can both be set free and made whole in Him that they serve.

I now declare and decree that whomever has been involved in this has now been released of this bondage!!! Be free, walk in your newness and praise God!

Please share this, so that anyone who is suffering can be set free!!

Feminine Friday

It's been a long, long, long, time since I've posted one of these, but I'm back at it again. I never stopped wearing dresses/skirts on Friday, I just got too busy to stop and take a pic to post...lol I've got to get better at that, so here goes...





Handle Your Business

1) This first step is to simply, handle (YOUR) business!! 

And you know what that means.... you can't handle your own if you're too busy in somebody else's! So you can't be looking over here, or looking over there, if your trying to handle (your) business. What that looks like is when your praising someone's house instead of cleaning up your own. Or coveting someone's position at work, instead of climbing the corporate ladder right from where you are.

Matthew 25:23 says, His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Listen...You just have to make it work, and make it work for you and not nobody else. The saddest thing in the world is when you want something somebody else has and you don't even really want that thing. For example, you're working two jobs to pay for a house like "whomever", but you really want an apartment.

You have the ability to have the life YOU want. It may take you a few extra steps than it did someone else, it may take you more work than someone else, but you can have it... NOW GO GET IT!!

2) The second step is, to (KNOW) your business!!

You can't handle what you don't know. God has given each and every person a purpose. And when you can identify that purpose, you can now start to walk in it.

Psalms 138:8 says, The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me:(or ESV version-The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me) thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. 

If you don't know what your business is, then ask the Lord to guide you so that you wont be lost in life.You have a mighty work that has to be completed and it can ONLY come through you. How many ministries are not yet started because they're waiting on YOU. How many people are missing a need because YOU haven't supplied it yet... NOW GO DO IT!!

3) The third step is, (PREPARE) for your business!!

There is a saying that goes, "Can you stand to be blessed?" And this is very much still true. You have to be ready for your purpose before you can walk in it. If you give a gambler a million before you've given him treatment, financial advisement, etc. he will just gamble it all away on a weekend trip to Vegas. We are the same way with any situation.

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.

We have prep work to do before we can handle our business or we will lose it all. Prep work saves you time, energy, money, etc. so do the work so that you won't have to start over again. When you focus on God, He will transform your mind so that you can handle your blessings. NO GO RECEIVE IT!!

Giuseppe Shoes DIY

I was going about my merry little way screen-shopping(window-shopping, but online) as usual, when I spotted something that made me squeal. It was the mother of all shoes, the spring/summer line of Giuseppe Zanotti featured a pair with "Crock Rock jewel" on them!!!
Oh My Goodness!!!
I wanted these shoes, and especially since I'm from the bayou state of Louisiana. But there was one HUGE problem, the $ 1,595.00 price tag.
So, the wheels in my head got to turning, and I say to myself...self why not try a DIY. (Kids make you talk to yourself from time to time...lol) And this is my version in a step by step process.
unfortunately I couldn't find gators,
 but I did find lizards...eh close enough
old pair of shoes, I was going to donate
I gave my little lizards the old "Midas Touch"
with paint I had on hand
I just removed the bunched ribbon detail
All done!!!
I love these!!!!
So glad I was able to DIY them.
My version was only $2 for the two lizards at $1 each.
 A lot less than $1600....(umm YEA!)
