Woman to Woman by Michelle McKinney Hammond

2 Oct

Ladies, can we talk? Talk about why women are frustrated and men are confused? Talk about where we lost our way and what that really means? Talk about where all the good men have gone and why so many are wandering? Let’s talk about the fine print we’ve neglected to read and how much that oversight has cost us. About the power that we’ve thrown to the wind. About what’s happening to our relationships. Our children. Our hearts. Our bodies. Our souls. Let’s talk about how the art of being a woman has become a near-extinct and priceless treasure. And how those who stumble across it treat it as an antique they don’t know the value of—tossing it aside, preferring the newer, more streamlined, cheaper model of so-called liberation. Funny how you never realize the value of Grandma’s brass bed until you get older and find out how much others are willing to pay for what we so easily discard.

God’s Bigger! by Thelma Wells

2 Oct

God’s bigger than your hesitations, fears, and pride!

Why is it we ask God to guide us, to reveal His plans for us, and when He does, we foolishly try to get away with NOT doing what He tells us?

The truth is God’s favor makes whatever we do for Him successful. When we obey His directions, He works miracles through us—even in spite of us!

Nothing But Christ, by Joyce Meyer

15 Sep

For I resolved to know nothing (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified. And I was in (passed into a state of) weakness and fear (dread) and great trembling [after I had come] among you. And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power. –1 Corinthians 2:2-4

Let God Touch You

15 Sep

This article is excepted from the book, Letters to Young Black Women

Dear Daughters & Young Women:

I want you to know that you are a special blessing from God. As far as I am concerned, the greatest gift to God’s green earth has been women. God has blessed you to be a woman. In my opinion, without you, this world would be incomplete and colorless. Without a woman, the Son of God would have never been born. So, I must join T.D. Jakes in saying, “God loves His girls.” The world may be hostile towards you, but God loves you very much, and you need to keep that in your heart and mind throughout the vicissitudes of life.

“Obedience to the call of Christ nearly always costs everything to two people – the one who is called, and the one who loves that one.”

The Desires of Your Heart

30 Jul

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.”
– Psalm 37:4-5, NIV

When you are living your life in commitment to God, He gives you the desires of your heart because they come from Him. God placed the desire for a companion and marriage partner within Adam’s heart, then He fulfilled the desire.

Let God Talk to You, by Daniel Whyte III

30 Jul

excerpt from the book Letters to Young Black Women

Dear Daughters & YBW:

I trust that you are doing well today.

In this letter, I want to encourage you to let God talk to you. What I mean by this is, I want you to get into the habit of reading the Word of God — the Bible — on a regular basis. Let the Word of God be your guide — not popular opinion, not your girlfriends, not your emotions, but the Word of God. Be a woman of the Word! Frankly, there is nothing more beautiful on God’s green earth than a woman who lives by the Word of God, and not by her feelings and emotions.
