The Cover-Up

banner for website
As women, we love to shop for shoes, clothing, and make-up, not to mention the latest trend….hair! We get so caught up in our appearance and the material things that we have forgotten to tend to our emotional soul and dying spirit. A spirit that is dying is usually depressed, angry, sinful, unsatisfied, unashamed (of their actions or words) and without restraint. So to make sure that the world doesn’t see past the beauty and fashion, more luxury and self-gratification is applied which then turns into what Jesus calls “whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean (Matthew 23:27).” Ladies, looking beautiful is what we do, but if we don’t allow God to wash us (cleanse us) and make us whole (heal us) then we are just beautiful women with a dead spirit and a decomposed soul.

but she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives. 1Timothy 5:6 (ESV)

We are Different. We are Unique. We were Designed to be Like our Creator.

butterfly“Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity” Margaret D. Nadauld

MY GOD REIGNS

Some say the mind is a terrible thing to waste

They never had to box the devil standing face to face

He comes in all forms in all shapes and in all sizes

His mission is to destroy the destiny God laid inside us

Some days I have joy

Some days I have sorrow

The enemies plan has succeeded

If I don’t look forward to tomorrow

I use to fall for his tricks, his games, and his demise

The Lord has come to save me

Yes! Jehova has heard my cries

He lifted me up out of a horrible pit

Everything that happened to me that was good

You better believe God did it

He even gave me peace of mind

Jehova Shalom is His name

It was right there in the wilderness

Where Jesus put the enemy to shame

I no longer feel defeated

I no longer feel ashamed

The enemy has been defeated

Yes! My God reigns

Get In There Ladies!

1 Timothy 2:9-10

“Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.” (The Message)
