Diamonds

Whenever we are going through or have gone through horrific circumstances, we can often feel like it was all for nothing. But what if I can tell you that there is, in fact, a purpose to what you've gone through. 

You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people... Genesis 50:20 NLT 

A diamond is created by going through an intense process:
Bury carbon dioxide 100 miles into Earth.Heat to about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat to about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Squeeze under pressure of 725,000 pounds per square inch.
Quickly rush towards Earth’s surface to cool.

We can apply those same situations to our lives:
Bury - Buried pain so deep that it now shows up in all sorts of ways: promiscuity, anger, addictions, etc. Burying emotions so that life feels numb.
Heat - Being burned by way of physical, emotional, sexual, and all sorts of other types of tragedies. Or just feeling like life is a living hell.
Squeeze -  Being under pressure all the time. Anxiety, stressed, and depressed.
Quickly - Never settling down and being calm. Always having to go, do, be...

This stone has a brutal process to become what it is intended to be. A beautiful diamond that shines bright and it's value is worth more than all other gems.
The same is said for you! You have overcome obstacles to become the beautiful woman that God has intended you to be. A beautiful, spiritual, woman that shines brighter than the rest. Because of what you've been through, your shine is now a glimmer of hope for others still going through. 
So shine on ladies...

Modern Modest Style

Ladies, let's talk about modern style that's modest! It's no secret that I do dress modestly, and with today's fashion it can be a little tricky. I also like to stay with the latest fashions... I've stumbled across a site that allowed me the opportunity to do both!! I was contacted by STYLEWE and have not regretted it one bit. The fashions are AMAZING and the selection has something for moms on all levels. From modest to fashionista to mommyhood, I've found something for all areas of my very busy life.

The best perk of ordering from STYLEWE is that the site offers so many choices for a modern modest mom like me! Who says you can't represent your faith and fashion all at the same time.

Check it out in your spare time...(and trust me, with five kids, I know all too well that's not often)

Happy Hunting!!!

A Damaged Flower Still Blooms

Many women suffer from being abused from such a young age. They are abused mentally, physically, and sexually before they even had the chance to grow into the woman that God has called them to be. When your innocence is shattered at such a young age, it has the potential to damage you for the rest of your life. You can become bitter, hurt, ashamed, guilty, angry, distrustful, guarded, etc. All of these emotions are of the devil. They hinder you from experiencing what the love of Christ feels like which is, 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
 

 Think about a flower! When in spring, it is in the beginning stages of life and is very vulnerable. It needs time to develop, mature, and grow into something beautiful. It it delicate and soft and the process can't be rushed or it will damage the flower before it had a chance to grow into its full potential. Now let's imagine that that flower bud represents your young spirit. When you were born and took your very first breath, the angels in heaven rejoiced because they knew your potential and knew the plans that God had for you. At that same moment, the demons in hell shuddered because they also knew the plans that God had for you. So even in your early beginning the devil knew what was just released into the world and had his demons from hell on assignment to you.



When you were molested and/or abused, it was designed to stop you from becoming the woman of God that you were called to be. BUT GOD!! See you are an over-comer and you can and will continue on your path that God has assigned you. The devil is a liar!! He is scared to death of you, that's why he sent attacks on you from the very beginning to stop you. But he can't stop what God has already put in motion. The devil doesn't attack what's already his or what is not a threat!!

If you have been molested/abused: pray that God will restore you, ask for the strength to forgive those that have hurt you, and rejoice because you are now a new creature in Christ! What the devil meant for harm, God is using for your good! Now you have become the kind of woman that when you open your eyes each morning, all the devils in hell will mourn and say "She's up!!!"

Royalty

Ladies, let's talk! It breaks my heart to know that many of you are struggling with feelings of "not enough". You feel that you are not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, strong enough, sexy enough, worthy enough, and so on and so on. Here's the good news, "You are ROYALTY!!!" Your father in heaven is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords! So that, my dear, automatically makes you a princess. The best part about all of this is that you don't have to do anything to earn it. Your crown has already been bought and paid for by the precious blood of Jesus.

See life can make you feel not enough. Bad relationships(Lord knows I've had my share) can make you feel not enough. Failed goals(I've had lots) can make you feel not enough. That's just the enemy trying to make you put down your crown, or lower your head so that your crown falls off and breaks. See he can't take your crown off of your head, he can only send situations, hardships, etc to make you remove it yourself. The devil is a liar!! Pick up your crown and know that no matter what the circumstances are, you are still royalty!!

Get a Divorce!!

How many single people understand that you may first need to get a divorce in order to have the Godly spouse that God has for you. Let me explain... Whenever we are intimate with someone we have now created a soul tie with that person. When we lay with someone, we have just entered into an agreement of spiritual connection.

As in marriage, Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh....Genesis 2:24


Or in sin, What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.... 1 Corinthians 6:16

Soul ties are strongholds created to torment your mind, body, and soul!! 

Ways that soul ties are created are sexually, spending time, flirting, talking to, relying on etc... They are mental strongholds that create a blockage in your love life and prevent God from giving you the person that He designed for you. God will not send a righteous child of His to you if you're still laying up with so and so. In other words, you can't say you're waiting for Boaz while sleeping with Bozo in the meanwhile!! God will not bless that mess!

Prayer for broken strongholds, fasting, and covering by a spiritual leader will help you regain control back over your love life.You have to divorce those ties in order to gain a healthy relationship. If someone is still present in your heart but not present physically, their is still no room for them emotionally. This also applies to a person that's married! You are NOT fully present with your spouse if someone else shares your time, your mind, your heart, or your bed.

GET A DIVORCE!!! Set yourself free so that you can have the love that God ordained for your life!
