The Modern "Proverbs 7" Woman

The backstabbing, trifling evildoer is rejoicing because she thinks that she has deceived you. She has been scheming with

- her deceitful text messages;
- her face book affair;
- her midnight calls;
- her secret breakfasts, lunches and dinners;
- her pathetic pity parties and
- her attention getting cries for help.

She thinks that she has gotten away. She shows up on Sunday morning - playing church-attempting to fool the onlookers. Many can see through the pretense. Others can't. Be not deceived. She may fool some, but she can't fool God. He knows her tricks, her schemes and her antics.

Psalm 37 reminds us,

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

When One Door Closes....

Check this out. I read this on

One Door Closes..Another Opens

Revelations 3:8

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly! ‘The power of one sentence! God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor. If you believe, send this to someone you know and hope it blesses them as well. If you don’t believe, delete it. God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close. When you reach the end of your rope, you will find the hem of his garment…..

You Win!

The enemy has launched an all out attack against you and against yours. He has exposed himself in every way imaginable - in your home, in your health, and in your hope. The enemy appears to be winning in your life. Be not deceived! The victory has already been declared. Isaiah 55:17 reminds us that ,"NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER...". The enemy knows that he has been defeated. The enemy does not want you to know that he has been defeated.

Therefore, you must rejoice in the Lord today. In spite of your hurt and your hindrances, praise God in advance! The enemy's attack is menial in the light of God's counter-attack. Praise Him!

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Press On

Keep moving forward.
Keep pressing on.
It is a struggle, but you can do it!

You must finish what you started. Don't quit because you are tired. Quit because you are finished. God quit creating the world on the seventh day -when he was finished. He could have quit on the first day, the second day, the third day, etc., but He had more work to do. Therefore, God waited until the world was complete (finished, done, finalized), and then He rested.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 reminds us that,
"The race is not given to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong..."

The Raging Storms Of Life

Many of us are presently struggling to navigate our little boats through the horrific storms on the raging sea of life.

-At times,countless waves of despair and defeat ferociously pound against our boats. But,somehow, we continue to sail along.
-At times,currents of brokenness and loneliness drift us downstream like a boat without a paddle (no obvious direction, just going with the flow). There is still some fight within us. We don't lose hope.
-At times,clashes of thunder and downpours of rain filled with unimaginable hardships grip us with fear, even though we know that we are admonished to "fear not". Although, we are afraid and we have no idea what awaits us around the next turn, we press on.
-At times,the prevailing clouds of darkness looming in the atmosphere seem to overshadow the light of God's WORD.

This, too, shall pass. There is a beam of sunshine just behind the dark cloud. How do we know this?
Romans 8:28 assures us,
For we know that all things (this is all encompassing) work
together for the good of those who love God and to those who
are the called according to His purpose.
