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!)

New Testament in 30 Days


Please note this is the original post, and that this reading will start in 2014!!

This year I would love to start off on a spiritual awakening!!! I have been led by the Holy Spirit to study the New Testament and apply the teachings to my everyday life as a wife, mother, and child of God. Wouldn't everyone love to get closer to God through his word and living by the scriptures to enhance their walk with Him. This is why, I'm starting a 30 day reading plan for the new year of 2012!!

I will read the new testament in 30 days starting Jan. 1, 2012. I plan to start the day with my reading and prayer, but you can designate your own time schedule with whatever works best for you. God has given me this assignment, so that I may revive my life according to His word and apply the practical teachings to help me be a light for my children and all that surround me.

If you would like to join us please do so and link up!! My reading plan averages about 5 chapters a day and has a catch up day on Jan. 31 if you miss a day. Even if you finish later on, don't feel bad. This is not a race! Just keep going until you can complete the entire reading, no matter how long it takes. The most important part is getting into God's word and I know that you will find what God has for your life in the scriptures! Have Fun and Many Blessings to You!

Please share the word by posting a button on your blog, so that other women may link up with us. And you can also share the link on Facebook, Twitter, etc...The more, the merrier! I've also added a printable copy, so that you can have it on hand while you read to keep up with your progress.
