From My Heart

31 May

excerpt from the book Letters to Young Black Women

“These letters are written with a full heart, yea, a heart overflowing. What I mean by that is this: I have shared these thoughts and principles with my daughters for years in the presence of my wife, Meriqua. These letters are addressed first to my daughters, and I am just going to open a vein and bleed these loving truths out to you as well…I hope that you, young dear sisters, will follow the example of these great women and walk in their footsteps to bring back the standards of old that America so desperately needs.”

P.T. (Power-Thoughts):

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’” – Erma Bombeck

BIBLE GEM: “Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.” – Proverbs 4:13

TALK TO GOD: Lord Jesus, as I read these letters, help me to have an open heart and an open ear to receive Your words of truth and love. Help me to apply all that I read to my life and to be the woman that You want me to be. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

Let God Touch You

31 May

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.

–I Thessalonians 5:17

Have you ever had a day when it seems like everything is going wrong? First, you overslept; you burnt the toast; your hair didn’t fall into place; or you had a falling out with your girlfriend,etc. Could it be that you failed to include God in your plans for that day?
