We only have 2 more to talk about in this series until we start something new. Thank you so much for being patient with me as I finish this.

Ok, can I share something with you all? I always prayed that a man would “seek” me & God, but I didn’t know it would actually happen. When wanting someone to be your partner, it is so important to be gentle.

First be sure to find out if they are interested. In this case, I am very interested in this person. I find them attractive and I like the way they carry themselves. They seem confident along with a lot of self-discipline.  Not only do they possess the above, but they are kind and patient with me.

Like a lot of people who have had their heart broken and time wasted, I am very protective of myself. I want to know God has sent them before I make a full investment. This guy makes it clear they like me without being too aggressive or controlling.

“It is easier to catch bees with honey” is such a true summary of being gentle. In order to gain someone’s love and acceptance, show them your good side and that you are willing to be there. The right people will love this quality about you.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb:
sweet to the taste and health to the body.

Proverbs 16:24




We’ve all been there. You get into an argument with someone. Our first reaction is to start bringing up all of those bad things we think about them. Sure we would never say it to them if we weren’t upset and hurt, but it’s a battle and we have to win.

When I was a young girl in college — saying the first bad thought that came to my mind felt good. “Oh yeah, you want to be hurt my feelings? Well, let’s see how you like this.”

People aren’t perfect – someone will do or say something that you don’t like. I had to start putting myself in other people’s shoes.

Kindness comes from understanding someone’s weaknesses and choosing not to hurt them. It’s easy to call a person out on their insecurities so you feel great for the moment. Everyone has bad days – including you. I wouldn’t want someone to kick me when I’m down, so I try not to do it to others.

Being kind does not mean you can’t be assertive or speak your truth. I mean the truth does set you free (John 8:32). However, when you say what needs to be said, you can be considerate of the another’s circumstances. You may know they are going through this or that – don’t make them feel even worst, no matter how good it feels. Believe me, it will come back to bite you.

Kindness – a fruit that is worth the development.

10 Then he said, “May the Lord bless you, my daughter. You have shown more kindness now than before, because you have not pursued younger men, whether rich or poor. Ruth 3:10

Anna Witnessed Jesus

The story of Jesus is amazing. There is always something new to learn. Even  when the story is heard every year – something new always pops out. One story people hardly ever mention is the story of Anna.

36 There was also a prophetess, Anna, a daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was well along in years, having lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and was a widow for eighty-four years. She did not leave the temple, serving God night and day with fasting and prayers. 38 At that very moment, she came up and began to thank God and to speak about him to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.

In Latin- her name means favor and grace. Anna experienced life, but always stayed connected to God. Even though Jesus was a baby, she recognized the savior. She went out and spoke of the good news so all could experience God’s blessings.

Even during stressful times like the holiday season – it is good to be a part of the holy spirit. Even if it’s by example: we can show the grace and love God has given to us. As they say “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Let’s show this world the representation of Christ!

Bible Verses for Overcoming Challenges

Your life is priceless.  Your are special. You matter. You have special gifts and qualities. Wipe away the doubt and tears. Put on your game face and conquer life.

Now when you go out for the day remember this:

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens. 13 For this reason take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.  Ephesians 6:13

Don’t be afraid.  Those who follow Jesus are given peace and strength to conquer the world.

27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful. Isaiah 41:10

You got this – the lord is your strength. The power of God can conquer all.

Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is my strengthand my song. He has become my salvation.” Psalm 18:2

Remember – if you fight according to God’s will and purpose for your life, you will always have victory.

Now I know that the Lord gives victory to his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with mighty victories from his right hand. Psalm 20:6


Here is a prayer I want to leave off with

God thank you for giving grace and the spirit to serve you.

I pray that you would protect me and guard my heart from anything that is not of you

I pray that everyone reading this will have peace and fulfilling joy

Please let them know they are worthy of your love and mercy for their lives

Let everything go well for them .

Any doubt or fears they may have I pray they conquer it by the mighty name of Jesus 

And I pray as they go through the day they are given constant reminders of your faithful heart 

In Jesus Name


God Loves You

Maybe you know and just need a reminder. Maybe you are doing your own thing and no one ever told you. I am writing this to you today to let you know God loves you.

You are so special. You were not a mistake. You created with perfect design. Every detail about you is known by the father. He loves you no matter how far you think you messed up.

See what great love[a] the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children—and we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know him. 1 John 3:1

When I was in the world, it was hard to understand I had a father in heaven. “A parent in heaven loves me? Why has bad things happen to me?”

We have free will to do what ever we want. Just like a hot stove there are consequences to everything.

A good parent allows their children to learn some things on their own in order for them to mature and grow. I promise you God is always there with you. He will not let you endure anything you were not equipped to handle. 

“Some things were out of my control especially as a child – that doesn’t make any sense.”

20 You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result—the survival of many people. Genesis 50:20

It’s true that there are evil forces in the world that don’t mean well for your life. Sometimes things just happen.

I realized when I come out of hard situations – I can use those testimony’s to help other seek Jesus.  Sharing our stories with others in the body of Christ creates a community that pleases God. When we stand together against the enemy – we are honoring God’s will.

Know that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps his gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who love him and keep his commands. Deuteronomy 7:9

No matter what this world has going on. We must stay close to a God that will keep us in perfect peace through good and bad times. God’s faithfulness gives his believers everything they need to leave a productive life.

I challenge you to talk to your creator. It doesn’t matter what you say – just get the communication going. Watch him unfold in your life. Here is a starter prayer to help:

“God I want to know your true everlasting love. Somethings may not be perfect in my life but I am coming to you in faith to ask you to show me who you are. I want to know more about you and your son Jesus Christ. I want to know what being your child feels like. Please show me your grace and mercy. I want your will to be done in my life the way it is done in heaven. In Jesus name Amen.”

The Simple Lesson Most People Forget

It is so simple, but it’s not always easy. Everyone can do it – but many choose not to. This lesson can save a lot of people from reading a 300 page self-help book that may or may not help. Now I know you’re dying to know. Ready ? Alright here goes.


The lesson is : If you do the right thing with everything, you will end up ok.
“That’s all you have for me really? Of course I knew that.”
I told you in the opening that it was so simple but you did not believe me. Now I’m not going to write you an entire essay – I’m just going to create a simple table for the most common problems people have.


If this happens…..

The right thing to do is…..

Someone hurts your feelings

Forgive them and pray for them. It takes time but please don’t become bitter over that person. You’re only hurting yourself

You feel like you’re not getting treated fair

Respectfully stand up for yourself, and walk away from the situation. You don’t have to spend time in a space that does not serve you

You are not in the best money situation

Pray for wisdom for you finances. After that, brainstorm how you can make things better. Example: Go back to school, get a second job, learn a different trade, get professional advice

  • Always treat people how you want to be treated even if they don’t treat you the same

  • Always have a strong work ethic with integrity even if you don’t see the reward ahead

  • Always forgive even if they don’t say I’m sorry or like you anymore

  • Always respect others even if you don’t get the respect you think you deserve


These things seem so difficult and like you will never get any where. I promise you will get everything you need in life if you do the right thing.

That’s it – that’s the secret.

Yet do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that when you are accused,those who disparage your good conduct in Christ will be put to shame.1 Peter 3:16

10 Then he said to them, “Go and eat what is rich, drink what is sweet, and send portions to those who have nothing prepared, since today is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, because the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
