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 Touch You

15 Jul

excerpt from the book Letters to Young Black 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…

P.T. (Power-Thoughts):

“If we open our hearts to God, He has promised to work within us.” – Prime Min. Margaret Thatcher

“The knowledge of sin is the beginning of salvation.” – Epicurus

“The spiritual part of you can be thought of as the part of you that cannot be seen with the natural eye. This part of you will live forever. And where the spiritual you lives, depends on the decision you make today.” – Joyce Meyer

“The cross is the only ladder high enough to touch Heaven’s threshold.” – G.D. Boardman

“A man may go to heaven without health, without riches, without honors, without learning, without friends, but he can never go there without Christ.” – John Dyer

BIBLE GEM: “…There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” –Luke 15:10

TALK TO GOD: Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and that I have broken your commandments. I now believe with all my heart that you — Jesus Christ, died, was buried, and rose on the third day. I am now ready for you to become the Lord of my life. Please come into my heart and save my soul and live within me forever. Thank you for your love and for your forgiveness. In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen!

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.
