God's Design For You



God has a beautiful design for the home. God's intention for marriage and having children is that His Word and teaching is passed to the next generation. Marriage is a part of God's Redemption plan.

God's design for you as a young women is to love your husband, love your children,  love your home, having self control (discreet or being sensible),  keeping yourself pure to be a keeper of the home, to be kind, and to be submissive to your own husband.

Titus 2:4-5 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5. To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.   Discreet means self-control and Chaste means pure.

The home is a woman's calling and it is to be her witness to the world.  Ladies, it is our most high and holy calling to be a godly wife and mother.

The home is our ministry, seek not after something else, but embrace the ministry right in front of you, the family and the home God has blessed you with.

He is counting on you to shape the next generation. Leading them to Christ, and passing on God's redemption plan.

Be inspired!

Reflection



Today, I thought about how far God has brought me....I looked back over my life how I use to be.

Thank God, I am not that person anymore.  The Lord has been working on my heart and my hubby heart over the last eight years.  What a change He has made in our lives.

I can honestly say I am still very far from perfect.  I am still allowing, and wanting God to work on my heart even more.

Another reflection in our life is that we need to stop trying to please others, weather it be family or friends or church folks.. There is no happiness in that.  We realized if you are not careful, you can be so busy trying to please others, that you forget to please GOD and your immediate family.  We are making God, each other and our two little girls our priority!!

What a change He has made and still is making in our lives.

Has God done a great work in your life? What are some changes you are making?

Believe in yourself!



You can do what God has plan for you!
Sweet friends just put prayer in it.

Put your heart in it.
You have more in you then you think.

If you feel like you can't keep going.
You can!

I believe in you.
But even more GOD believes in you.

He knows
He cares
He hears your heart cry.
He understands.

What you do ~ does matter.

Take care of yourself.
Slow down and rest in HIM.

There is someone you can lean on.
He is with you!
He is right there when it looks like hope is lost.
Keep holding on He is there.

God is only a prayer away.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

It is easy for us to compare ourselves, our life with others.  maybe it is making each of us to walk away feeling a little less then we are. Instead of comparing maybe we could seek to be inspired. each of us has a routine, or a way about us that appeals to others.  find your way, your routine, your journey and fulfilled it with all of your heart.

A simple change in our ways could bring down the walls of competition between each other. becoming one who seeks to be inspired by others, or one who inspires.  Finding the courage to let your heart embrace simply what you have been blessed with; your home, your family.  Inspired by simply being you.         

Hello Friends,

I love early mornings, the peace, the quietness, the newness of God mercies he gives to us each day...it makes early mornings my favorite time of the day.  I don't know about you, but I need His mercies and love each day.   I love my time in His word, my time to talk with Him. I need Him!

I have never been one to feel the need of keeping a daily planner. I mainly do what ever I see that needs to be done.  Maybe, it is because I keep my life simple, but meaningful.  I say no to the busyness of life; I am simply at home where I love to be.

 I am inspired by those who keep a daily planner of their time and life.  Being inspired, I have given it some thought about using a daily planner. Maybe it would help me to use my time better and more wisely.  I know it would, but here it is the 27th of January and I have yet to find the time to even start a daily planner. Crazy huh!

And that is okay, I am good with that.  I keep up with a monthly calendar for church events and a to do list.   To me that's enough and I am content.  It's great to be inspired, and even give it a try.  But most of all it's okay to accept that it isn't for you.   

Be inspired!

A Little Place


 
      A Little Place

  "Where shall I work today, dear Lord?"
And my love flowed warm and free.         
 He answered and said, "See that little place? 

Tend that place for me."

I answered and said, "oh no, not there!
No one would ever see. No matter how well
my work was done, Not that place for me!"

 His voice,when He spoke, was soft and kind, He answered me tenderly,
"Little one, search that heart of thine, 
Are you working for them or Me?
