A Life's Sentence: Your Plans for You Versus God's Plans for You

Anytime we hear that someone has been given a life's sentence in prison, we know that their lives are pretty much over.  For the rest of their lives or the duration of their sentences (25 years or more), they will be monitored, controlled, and limited in their doings.  All the same, they will be restricted to a small cell that they'll likely share with another inmate or several inmates.  They'll be subjected to tormenting words, lewd behaviors, and a lifetime of regrets.  It goes without saying that there aren't many sane people (if any) who want to go to prison, and that's why most of us stay on our p's and q's and ensure that we follow every letter of the law.  But what about your life's sentence?  What have you limited yourself to?  Who have you limited yourself to?  Believe it or not, we have all given ourselves life sentences, and that's why God continues to extend new mercies to us everyday, all the while, renewing our minds whenever they need a refreshing.

No Premarital Kissing for Me...Here's Why

I've been added to many singles' groups on Facebook, and I often see the question asked to single women, "Would you be willing to wait until marriage to kiss your guy, or will you kiss him while courting?"  I'm often curious as to the mindsets of today's modern Christian, so I normally read the comments before responding.  Sometimes, I choose not to respond to such questions because I'm so passionate about my beliefs that I know my stance could come off as judgmental, when it is not.  Like most women, I've shared premarital kisses with the wrong men, and of course, if you know my story, I was married twice.  I was God's rebellious child: the infamous Prodigal Daughter who went away to sample the forbidden pleasures of life.  My mind was twisted and I believed I could find a blessing in sin.  I was that girl who most folks didn't think could be saved...even some of the folks in the church.  Nevertheless, God changed me and I made up my mind to wait.

Losing One Fight to Win Another One

Today, I broke.  I didn't break down (per-SE), but my heart did break.  My heart broke for "her".  Who is she, or better yet, who was she?  She was a girl I knew so dearly, a girl who'd dedicated her life to protecting me.  She'd done everything in her power to get me what I wanted, but in the end, I had to let her die.  I had to stand there and watch her die a slow and agonizing death, but she was a fighter.  She fought hard until the end, and even when I thought she was dead, she'd open her eyes once again and start fighting off what she believed to be my adversaries.  It's amazing how much fight she still had in her after all she'd gone through, and it's amazing that she still wanted to fight for me after I'd made the decision to let her die.

Are You Preparing or Just Waiting

There are many women who are "waiting" on GOD for their GOD-appointed husbands, and while this may be admirable, it can also be error.  The general mindset for waiting women is: I'm ready for my husband.  I'm just waiting on him to find me.  Such thinking comes from a common mindset found in women, and that mindset is: Every relationship I was in that failed was the fault of the man, so therefore, I am just waiting on that one man who will appreciate what the last man didn't appreciate.  Here's the thing: That last guy (and every guy before him) got with you because you had a void, sin, or a lack of understanding that opened the door for him to enter into your life.  This means you were NOT ready to be found by your GOD-appointed husband, thus the reason you ended up being discovered outside the will of GOD by the wrong man.  In other words, you do need a change of heart after all.

The Plight of the "Average" Woman

He's smart, handsome, cute and successful. He's everything you think you want in a man. And best of all, he's interested in you....Yes you! So, you bat your eyes and put on your widest grin. It appears your wait is over. It appears you've been found, and the man who's found you is perfect for you. This guy is so good, you're determined to lock him in. Like any good investor, you decide to put an offer on the table for him. You're offering him the best of you, and all he has to do is give you his last name. Nevertheless, before he accepts the offer, he wants to take you for a test run to see if you're worth your asking price, and because you don't want to let that one get away, you decide to passive-aggressively accept his offer. No, you won't open your mouth and say you're willing to let him have sex with you in hopes that he'll take you to somebody's altar and marry you. Instead, you decide to pretend that the random and somewhat spontaneous sex was an unplanned event that you're not too happy about. Once he comforts you, however, you begin to relax a little and you stop pretending that you got “caught up in the moment” and you just start letting “it” happen. You are officially in a sexual relationship and you make no apologies for it.

I'm Engaged

I am blessed to say that I am finally living the life I've always wanted to live, and things keep getting better.  And to top it all off, I can now look at my ring finger and see the fruit of my faith, and I'm just overwhelmed by how wonderful my GOD is; plus, my fiance's a great guy too.  He is GOD-fearing, anointed and he was definitely worth the wait.  It feels so overwhelmingly good to know that GOD loves me so much that HE chose a husband-to-be for me after HIS own heart.

Cultural Mindsets: Why You're Still Single

First and foremost, let me bring attention to the word "average." Average indicates a norm, a requirement and an expectation; therefore, the average woman is a woman who follows the norm, society's requirements and the expectations of other cultural-minded people.

Passionately Waiting

After the tragic passing of Dr. Myles Munroe, I found myself watching some of his videos.  Truthfully, I had heard about Dr. Munroe, but I had never heard him speak until after I heard of his passing.  After listening to a few of his teachings, I immediately understood why he was so renowned.  He was definitely full of wisdom and his style of preaching left you wanting more.  But there was something he said in one of his videos that made me think.  He said that he and his wife didn't argue.  Wow!  That wasn't the first time I'd heard a man say that he and his wife had never argued or hadn't argued for years.  Truthfully, I'd met a few people in my life who were over fifty years of age; people who'd said they'd never argued with their spouses or they hadn't argued with their spouses for decades.  They'd learned to respect each other so much that they refrained from arguing.

Am I Free to Marry: The Truth About Soul Ties

You've been waiting....and waiting....and waiting some more.  You remember the works you've done.  You've refrained from sex, ended a godless relationship, refrained from entering other godless relationships, bought a few books about single living, attended a few singles' conferences, gotten on a few prayer lines, bought some oil to anoint yourself with, and you've even mentored a few women about waiting.  This has to mean that your GOD-ordained husband is on his way to you; right?  -----------------------------Wrong.
You keep telling yourself that it's just not your season yet, but in the meantime, you will surround yourself with other single women so that you can feel better about your wait.  After all, you've been waiting five years (more or less), so you have something to offer them too; right?  You see a few women who's been waiting a year, and their conversation reveals that they expect their GOD-appointed husbands to find them any day now.  How dare they?  You've been waiting five years (more or less), so you feel like they are trying to get ahead of you in the invisible line you're standing in.  You open your mouth to share what you think is wisdom, but instead, what comes out is the foolishness that's been keeping you from being found.  You're bitter.  You're still tied up to some man in your past, and you don't even recognize that you're in a soul tie.  You feel entitled.  You've somehow convinced yourself that your works have justified you, and because you think this way, you've allowed yourself to become upset with GOD.  Sure, you may not say it out loud, but your frustration with the LORD is very much so present.  You're mad because you've been waiting for a long time, and you're watching other women get married after having waited a few months or a few years.  You reason within your mind that they must be with Ishmaels because GOD wouldn't dare do that to you.  HE would not make you wait five years for Isaac, only to send another woman her Isaac after she's waited two years.

12 Things Women Usually Say To Their Ishmaels

If you're currently in a relationship with an Ishmael, you will more than likely delete the cookies and browsing history on your computer to ensure that Ishmael does not see this post.  

You're sitting there and trying to think of something to say to get Ishmael to change.  Ishmael is watching television, and doesn't really want to be bothered, but you want to talk; only, you don't know what to say, so you sit there quietly trying to think of any words in the English language that you haven't used on him yet.  Maybe there's a point you haven't made; an angle you haven't explored. Ishmael senses that you're about to start another fight in your attempt to change him, so he lets out a heavy sigh.  Your posture gave you away.  Instead of being seated in a relaxed position, you are sitting upright, slightly facing him, and it's obvious that you aren't truly watching whatever's on television.
