Hold onto your confession of faith, no matter what! This test of endurance, this particular trial of your faith is SPECIFIC! What you may be facing today, is of “no fault of your own”…a “not of your doing-thing!” Nonetheless, you are dealing with it and IT IS TRYING YOUR FAITH!

Don’t give up! Don’t quit! Don’t throw the towel in, just because it is of no fault of your own. One thing for sure, the Lord is aware of what you are going through, and you need PATIENCE to ENDURE FAITHFULLY to the END of the matter! Victory and conclusion is near!

Don’t give up on Jesus! Don’t throw in the towel on the Word of God which has been steadfast for you. Don’t cast away your confidence in what the Lord has promised you. Just because you have to endure this situation don’t LOOSE HOPE!

Know that you have “No Fault Assurance!” The Lord’s MERCY endureth forever! As the Lord’s MERCY ENDURES; YOU CAN ENDURE FAITHFULLY! Put on patience and USE YOUR FAITH TODAY!

Stay the course. Changing your mind back and forth leaves you in the sea of indecision! The state of double mindedness produces no decision at all. More importantly, the wavering back and forth is canceling out your prayer request.

Take His Rod, place it in the ground of your foundation and hold on to His Word! Your tenacity, in trying to pull it all together, has tuckered you out! All of your efforts to make things fit have exhausted you! No results yet have made you uncertain of your steps!

There is nothing left to do now but WAIT ON THE LORD and be confident that the Lord is near as well as dear to your life! Ask of Him, knowing that He will answer. Be patient and wait on Him, no matter how long it takes. The Lord will answer, He is faithful, trust Him! Turn your mind toward Jesus!

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Hebrews 10:35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.



The Lord wants you to remind you today there is nothing too difficult for Him. He is on His throne, and His Spirit is within us.  He can break through your cloudy days and bring forth the sun to shine upon your circumstances.  Everything will pass away except His Word. When God speaks there is nothing that can stop that Word from coming about.  Usually when He speaks something He is going to do with us, there is no sign of it at the time, but you know in your spirit it’s coming.

Then here come the enemy to try and steal the word the Lord has blessed you with.  You must hold fast to what you know is true and watch the Lord bring it forth regardless how the situation may look.   And when the enemy attacks you start speaking forth the times God has delivered you from the enemy.  Speak aloud the testimonies of the Lord in your life.  

Speak forth the times when it seemed you had no way out, and God opened a door for you. Stand firm and speak aloud the scripture in Isaiah 54:17, No weapon that is formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me declares the Lord

Remember, God does things through faith, not by sight. He will bring you forth in His appointed time.  When He brings you forth, you will see it wasn’t by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit in which he worked the miracle in your life.  He is the God of possibilities.  All He requires of us is to believe what He says.  He has proven to all of us His faithfulness.  He will accomplish all He has said to you.  Be faithful to the word He has spoken, and do not let the enemy talk you out of your promise. 

Remember, God is for us, and not against us.  He will never forsake us, or leave us. Fear not, stand firm and declare the great testimonies of what God has done for you. God delivered you in the past, He will do it again.  He is the same, He never changes.

Jeremiah 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:

Wait on the Lord for the right mate

Matthew 8:21-22 And another of his disciples said unto him.  Lord, suffer me to first go and bury my father.   But Jesus said unto him, follow me and let the DEAD BURY THE DEAD.

I tried to write this story so many times, and each time I had to stop.  It seemed that the Lord was given me the ending portion of it, and I couldn’t see how to begin it, until early one morning when in prayer the Lord said tell your story.  I wondered what story, and He said Dead Weight.  Immediately, I knew what He meant and tears started to fall from my eyes.  Why, because it meant truly sharing the most intimate and personal side of my life, and I wasn’t sure that I was ready to do that.  I had shared some of the things in my life before, but this part I didn’t think I was ready to open up and share this with anyone.

Then He reminded me of what He told me long ago “I told you to write so that they will know that I am real” How else will they know I am real if you don’t tell them about how I brought you through.  Tell them about the tears you shed to get to your place with Me. Tell them how you fought to stay with Me.  How else will you set them free if they can’t have someone to relate to, someone who knows what they are going through.  Tell them, tell them.”  

So here I am telling you what He wants you to know about carrying Dead Weight. 

Tears still fall from my eyes as I think of how much God loves His people, and how He wants you to be delivered and set free.  How much He cares about every part of your life.

My prayer: Help me Lord to stay before you as I write this.  Help me to tell our story so that it will minister and set the captives free.  My spirit is so heavy as I write this message.  Lord, I feel the pain of so many young ladies suffering.  They are crying out for an answer from You, when they already know the answer to their problem, but are afraid to let go.  Please move upon them as they read this message so that they can be delivered and set free.  In Jesus name I pray.  Amen


It isn’t always easy trying to live the single life, especially if you are a Christian woman.  The enemy will constantly make you feel lonely, tempting you to do things you know in your heart are wrong, and cause you to block out things you don’t want to see.  The enemy does this because he wants you to lose your focus on the Lord; to lose sight of the blessings the Lord has promised you.  I pray my testimony will expose the enemy and the tricks he has been doing in your life and the lives of those you love.

My ‘dead weight’ came when I really wasn’t lonely (or so I thought).  I had survived an abusive marriage and was doing very well, raising 4 beautiful children.  My son was in his senior year, and it was almost graduation.  Then a former childhood sweetheart came back into my life.  It was like a dream come true.  All I could think about was the wonderful ministry we would have for the Lord.  I was a minister, and he was minister of music at his church.  I truly thought he was a Christian, who loved the Lord.  After all, this man was raised in church; I had no reason to think otherwise.  But there is a verse the Lord dropped in my spirit, I want you to remember, which I am sure you are familiar with it:

Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”  

As I said, it’s hard dating when you are a Christian, you’ve made a commitment to the Lord to live a holy life; and most young men who aren’t living the same lifestyle don’t understand that.  That’s why the dates I’d had only lasted through a few dinners and a couple of movies, if you know what I mean.  Men don’t like spending money if there is no return on their investment.


I speak to those who have been in the valley of trouble, the valley of weeping; it has seemed that the monotony of this place would never end. You have nearly lost hope of ever coming through and of things changing. You expected breakthrough by now, and your expectations have not been met.  My Word is true, you must remain faithful and refuse the temptation to fall into oppression. The enemy desires to steal your strength and your ability to move ahead.  He is trying to snuff out the flame of desire for Me and bring you down to the depths of hopelessness and defeat.

Look up, My child. There is an end to this struggle.  I am your door of hope. Look up.  Seek to find your place in Me, and do not be weary in well-doing, for you will reap in due season if you do not faint.  Refuse to give in to discouragement and weakness.  Don’t allow discouragement to get a stronghold in your life, for it will paralyze you and keep you from moving ahead in My purposes. Shake yourself loose from the deception that has crept into your thinking.

Rise up I say, and stand on the truth of My word.  I have given you power to trample over all the works of the enemy, and today is the day to break every curse and assignment the devil has sent against you.  You are not a victim of his schemes and plans.  You are victorious over every weapon he has formed against you.  Cast off your worries and fears, and come in confidence, for I will touch you and cause you strengthen you so you can be victorious in the midst of this storm.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.






2 Corinthians 4:8 -9" We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.

You can’t lose hope now; you have come too far to give up. What has happened in your life to make you think that I can’t bring you out of this situation? I can, and I will bring you out of this.  I will take what seems like an impossible situation and cause you to say, “Only Jesus could have worked this out”

  You don’t have time to be discouraged, and give up hope. I am going before you right now putting things in order. Nothing will be able to touch you, or throw you off guard, for I am doing a complete work within you. I see your struggles. I see what you are going through, please don’t lose hope. Do not believe the lies of the enemy. Instead cling to the promises I have given to you so when the storms are over you will get up changed, made new, and walk into the fullness of your calling.

  Do not back down, but suit up in the armour that I have provided for you and move forward. Those who try to slow you down will not be successful. No longer will they be a hindrance in your walk. I want you to set your sights on things above and do not be thrown off guard by the so-called successes of men trying to deceive you. They are in My hands.

  I want you to stay focused on Me with your whole being. So please don't give up, others are depending upon you. So be faithful to the call, and you shall be rewarded with blessings untold. Trust Me to provide for your every need. Trust Me to lift you up and out of despair and into heavenly blessings. So I say unto you do not be discouraged. I haven’t forsaken you.

  My Prayer Confession,

Heavenly Father, Thank You Lord for giving me peace and taking away the discouragement that was in my heart.  Thank You for breathing upon my situation and bringing peace in the midst of the storm. I know Lord You never left me and never turned away from me.  Thank You for always caring for me.

REMEMBER,..There is nothing you will face today that the Lord can't see you through. 

Have a Jesus filled day,
Minister Shearon




Beloved, refuse to allow the little things to get you down.   Just when you think you have it all figured out you can expect another opportunity to deal with and overcome frustration.  Stay calm and face each new challenge with patience and an open mind and heart, for you will certainly need My guidance and wisdom.  Use these opportunities to abide in My strength and to allow Me to do what you cannot do.   

When you hit a temporary dead end, look up and wait for My direction.  I will do a new thing in your life, make a way where there seems to be no way and lead you when you take time to pray and seek My face.  You will be able to look back at this time and know that My grace is sufficient for every situation. 

Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

2 Corinthians 12:9a And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

Get Back Up, Shake Off the Past, and Get On With Your Life

Ladies, one day I was throwing a “pity party” for myself, (oh yeah I had a few of them) and I had invited some major players to attend.  My guest list included Old Man DEPRESSION and of course he couldn’t come alone, so he brought his date MS. OPPRESSION along for fun.  MR. HE TICKED ME OFF was there.  SISTER GONNA GET EVEN stopped by , oh and my COUSINS WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME?, and NOBODY CARES ABOUT ME  dropped by to liven things up.

You see I was having one of those days when I felt like life had done me wrong, and it seemed like I couldn’t get past this point.  There was a lot going on at this party.  Oh yeah!  A lot of crying, a lot of feeling sorry for myself, a lot of reflecting on the many mistakes I had made, and a lot of kicking myself for taking so long to recognize when to end a bad relationship.  The party was going very well or so I thought, until the Lord showed up.

Isn’t it just wonderful how our Saviour shows up and crashes a party?  Crash it, He did.  He began to minister to my spirit and told me stop feeling sorry for myself and get back up.  He said the door on that life was closed, and I needed to get back up, because I still had work to do.  Well, I’m going to be honest.  I know what He said to me was true, but I just didn’t feel like doing what He said.  Not right then anyway.  I needed my pity party to go on just a little longer.  After all I felt I had a lot to grieve about, and I wasn’t through.  Yet, the Lord didn’t give up on me (PRAISE THE LORD!) and continued to hang in there with me and ministered to my grieving soul.  Then He led me to the second book of Samuel chapter 12.  So I did, and I started reading at verse 16, and then the Lord gave me a short history lesson about a “man after His own heart” and how he got back up after making some serious mistakes.

So now ladies I want to give you the same lesson that was given to me that day, and pray that it will minister to your spirit and cause you to GET BACK UP, SHAKE OFF THE PAST AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE so you can free yourself from your past and get ready to receive the love God has waiting for you.

Scripture reading: John 8:1-11 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.  And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.  And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they set her in the midst, they say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.  Now Moses in the law commanded us; that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?  This they said, tempting him that they might have to accuse him.  But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.  So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.  And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.  And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers?  hath no man condemned thee?  She said, No man, Lord.  And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go,and sin no more.  

I know you are familiar with the story of the woman committing adultery.  It’s the only story in the bible where a woman is actually taken in the very act of committing adultery.  This time as you read about her, I want you to meditate and go a little deeper into the story; I want you to imagine that you are there as this is happening, better yet, imagine that it’s you that has been taken in the act of committing adultery.  Let me share this with you as God shared it with me in a dream.

It was almost dawn; the sun would be up soon, and I needed to get home before it was time for the babysitter to leave.  I was glad that she had been able to come and stay over for the entire weekend, which gave me some much-needed time away from the kids.  Time I could use to spend with my special friend.  Everything seemed to fall into place for this weekend too; his wife was out of town on her girlfriend trip, so he was free to get away.

I hated he was married, but after dating guys with no future, and looking for someone to take care of them, I figured why not date a married man?  No strings attached, I wasn’t looking for anything long term, and it would ease my loneliness and satisfy my needs until I could find the right one.  At least, that is the way I intended it to be.  What started out as an innocent meeting in the park had grown into a beautiful (but sinful) relationship.  Yes, I had found someone who appreciated me and made me feel special.  Shame he was married…

I started to get out of the bed as he reached for me and pulled me closer to him.  His arms squeezing me ever so gently; and I was just about to give in when suddenly the door burst open.  I was staring in the face of some of the men from the church I attended.  What were they doing here, and how did they find me?  Before I could say a word, they pulled me out of the bed, yanking on me, slapping me around, and calling me all kinds of names.  I tried to reach for my clothes, but they wouldn’t let me get to them.  Finally, someone threw a sheet around me, and they began to pull me out of the room.

Where were they taking me?  They were all talking at once, and I couldn’t make out what they were saying.  Wasn’t it enough that I had been caught?  What happened to the man I was with, why wasn’t he saying anything?

My heart felt like it was trying to come up through my throat.  I tried to explain (but what was there to explain, I knew what I had done).  I struggled to get away from them, but they weren’t listening.  More men came into the room and confronted the man I was with.  I couldn’t concern myself with him now I had to find a way out of this mess.  Where were all these people coming from?

They pulled me outside and continued to call me names and said what they would do to me if I were married to them.  Little did they know some of their wives were doing the same thing?  But oh, when I get out of this mess, my sistas would have to tell me why they didn’t have my back.  They had to know something was up.  There is no way these men could keep a secret like this from some of their wives.

It seemed as though they had been pulling me for a while now.  I was still screaming and kicking trying to get loose.  We finally came to a stop near this temple where weekly prayer meetings were being conducted.  I felt as though I was going to pass out, my knees were getting weaker and weaker.  What was going to happen to me?  I could barely see past all the tears, but as I looked around I was able to make out some of my women friends huddled in groups whispering.  So they did know.  Why weren’t they trying to help me, I wondered?  Why were they just standing there?  Surely, I would help them if they were in trouble.  I was alone in this mess.  They could at least go and get some help.  Not one of them moved an inch to help me.  Now I knew what type of friends I had.

The men started calling me names as they continued to push me, and then drag me when they thought I was going to pass out.  They wanted to make sure I was alert for whatever they were going to do.  I could no longer see the man I had been with, just a bunch of strange faces.  No one looked familiar to me right now.  Why won’t they leave me alone, and let the two of us work this out?  Why are they even concerned about what I was doing?  It’s none of their business.  Why is he letting them do this to me?  I cried out for someone to stop them, but no one came.


They finally stopped in front of the temple, and I felled to the ground.  When I looked up, there was a man teaching some small children there.  He said something to the children, and they went away.  I couldn’t make out who this person was because of the tears running down my face.  Someone finally called out to him.  Then one of them told him what I had been doing.  Why were they telling a stranger about what I did?  What were they getting ready to do, and why would he care?  Then suddenly a light went off in my head, and I felt like a ton of bricks hit me and woke me up.  I realized what was going on.  I remembered the sermon the minister preached on last Sunday (oh yeah I went to church and believe it or not I paid attention; I just didn’t apply it to my life), and I remembered what Moses had said in the Law:

If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, [both] the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.  Deuteronomy 22:22
And the man that committeth adultery with [another] man’s wife, [even he] that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer, and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.  Leviticus 20:10
Ok, wait a minute.  I am not married to anybody, so surely this law they are talking about can’t apply to me; I thought.  But who the heck am I going to say that to now?  Oh my goodness, I remember them teaching on this last week.  That would have been a good time to ask that question.  Snap out of it girl, pay attention to what is happening right now, focus.

Surely, they aren’t thinking of killing me for committing adultery.  Another thing, why didn’t they drag the man with me?  Why are they only picking on me?  If we are going to go by “The Law,” well it clearly states that the man is just as guilty as I am, so where is he?  I am not the only one guilty of committing sin I wanted to say, but from the look in their eyes, I was too afraid to speak.

Just then the leader of the group addressed the man who was teaching.  “Teacher, this woman was taken in the very act of adultery.  Now Moses in the law commanded us that she should be stoned.  But what do you say?  Oh no, they were thinking of stoning me.  Oh my, Lord have mercy.  How could this be happening?  I don’t deserve this.  How could they think of killing me because I slept with someone?  Oh Lord, I don’t deserve this.  Ok, I messed up, but surely I didn’t deserve to die for it.


So many thoughts ran through my mind, so many things I hadn’t had a chance to do.  People I hadn’t spoken to in so long, people that I had allowed to slip out of my life.  So many things I had wanted to say, but had allowed hatred and bitterness to keep me from speaking to them.  Oh Father, what’s going to happen to my children?  What would happen to them?  So many things I wanted to say to my family.  If only I could have one more chance, if only I could repent of what I had done.  Now it was too late.  Some of them had already picked up rocks, as they waited for the Teacher to answer.

What was taking him so long to respond?  Was he ignoring them?  Instead of answering, he stooped down and started writing on the ground.  I dried my eyes, so I could see who they were talking to.  Oh no, it was Jesus!  Surely, my time had come; there was no way He was going to go against the Law.  He was Jesus!  Had I finally reached the end of my life?  Had I finally gotten so deep in sin that there was no way out?  To be caught in the act of committing adultery, nothing could be worse.  I couldn’t lie my way out of this mess like I had done so many times before.

As I thought about it, what I was doing with this married man wasn’t even worth it.  It was just something to do to keep from being lonely.  Something to pass the time away to ease the hurt I felt from my failed relationships.  It was my way of not dealing with reality.  Instead of praying and asking God to work on me and give Him some of my time, I decided to take things into my own hands and help destroy someone else’s marriage.  Look at what it cost me; I traded nights of passion for my life.  Oh Father, to be able to start over again.

I opened my eyes and looked over at Jesus; He continued writing.  What was He writing?  Was He writing out my punishment?  Why won’t He answer them?  I wanted to die; I just wanted it to be over.  Why couldn’t I have a heart attack right now and die?  Oh please let it happen so I can be put out of my misery.  I trembled as I waited for Him to answer.  It seemed like my whole life was passing before my eyes as I waited for Jesus to respond.


They asked him again, and finally, he stopped writing.  Oh no, this is it.  I clung tighter to the sheet that covered my body and braced for the first stone to hit me.  Jesus stood up and spoke.  “He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her” Then He returned to His writings on the ground.  What the heck was He writing?  Didn’t He see these men were crazy?

There was murmuring in the crowd, I closed my eyes not knowing what was going to happen next.  I knew some of the men in the crowd had committed sin, but I couldn’t concern myself with that now.  I wanted to live; I wanted another chance.  I remembered the prayer, I had heard Jesus recite earlier, and I started saying it silently:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.  Amen.
Lord please forgive me. 

I felt the embrace of the two men that had been keeping me awake release their grip on me.  If this was it, I was going out praying.  I continued to pray:

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. 

Every prayer, every scripture my grandmother had taught me was flooding my mind like a river.  Oh why hadn’t I lived the life that she had talked about?  Why had I allowed circumstances to dictate to me how I would live?  I knew better; I knew the Word.  “Oh Father, forgive me, I want to live!”  I cried.

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.  

I waited for the first rock to hit.  Nothing.  Even the murmurings were dying down.  I heard rocks hit the ground.  I jumped thinking they missed me, and I braced for the next one to hit me.  Nothing…Slowly I opened my eyes and looked around.  Men were dropping their rocks and walking away.  The women across from the temple were walking towards Jesus.  What happened?  Why were they leaving?  Then I remembered what Jesus had said:

“He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone”
They were walking away because of their own sins.  Their own sins convicted them.  I looked at them as they were leaving; I knew most of them.  They were ready to stone me, to put me to death because of my sin.  However, these same men, whom I thought had been so righteous, were just as guilty in their walk with the Lord.  However, they had wanted to kill me for what I had done.

I watched as the last one walked away, and wondered what would happen to me now.  I dared not move for fear of the unknown.  Jesus stopped writing, and raised Himself; I trembled as never before and pulled the sheet closer to my body.  I realized no matter how tightly I held onto that sheet, I still felt naked in the presence of the Almighty God.  Naked, ashamed and waiting on my judgment.  What would I say to Him?  As He came near I wanted to speak, but the words wouldn’t come.  This man held my life in His hands.  What could I say to Him?  I knew I was guilty; I couldn’t hide it from Him.  There was nothing I could say.


When He looked at me, it was as if He could see everything I had ever done.  My life was before Him like an open book, nothing was hidden.  Nothing!  I looked into His eyes, and saw such calmness, such peace, and so much love.  “Woman, where are thine accusersHas no man condemned thee?”  He asked.  With tears running down my face I said, “They walked away Lord.  No man stayed to condemn me” Although I had prayed, nothing could have prepared me for what He was about to say.  Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.  Then He turned walked way and went back to teaching as before saying:

John 8:12 I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

I stood there, not able to move.  Now tears began to stream down my face, as I realized Jesus had given me a second chance.  He wiped away my sin; He had spoken to me and made me feel brand new.  I slowly felled to the ground praising Jesus for giving me a second chance, for sparing my life.  I didn’t deserve it, but He gave me a second chance.  I felt this day was the first day of the rest of my life; I felt reborn.  His words rang in my spirit over and over: “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more”  

Jesus hadn’t condemned me for what I had done even though He knew all about me.  He had every right to, but He forgave my sins.  He knew all about me, yet He didn’t condemn me.

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;
It didn’t matter to Him what I had done, He stood there with His arms stretched out waiting for me to come to Him.  He stood ready to forgive me for what I had done.  He gave me a second chance.  My past was behind me; Sin no more I heard Him say.  He wiped my sins away.


I had never known how precious life was until it was almost taken away from me.  I had never known how much Jesus loved me until I stood face to face with Him covered in sin, and He washed me clean.  What kind of love is this?  A love that looks beyond all my faults, searches my heart, and forgives.  It’s a love that never changes, a love of mercy and grace.  This is the love that I had been craving.  This is the love that I had been searching for.  No man had ever loved me like this before.  A love like this could only be found in the arms of Jesus.

I didn’t know how long I laid there crying tears of joy before I felt hands pulling on me.  Someone was calling for me; “Mommy, mommy wake up, time to get up.”  It was my son; he was up and hungry for breakfast.  Off he went towards the kitchen.  Oh my, I had been dreaming.  Yes, I had been dreaming.  I pulled the covers back, as I slowly got myself together.  I looked over and saw my bible lying open next to me.  The chapter I had been reading before I fell asleep was John, chapter 8.  It was the story of the woman taken in adultery the night before.  I touched my face and it was wet, and my eyes felt swollen as if I had been crying all night.

As I got up and started towards the bathroom, the phone rang, it was my friend, and he wanted to know if we were meeting tonight.  I thought about the dream, a second chance, go your way, and sin no more.  “No” I told him.  “It’s over; I can’t see you ever again.  Please don’t call anymore.”  I hung up the phone, went back into the bedroom, and fell on my knees.  Tears began to run down my face as I thought about the life I had been living, all the lies that I had told.  How many times had I gone against His will, and yet He forgave me.  He gave me a second chance.  How many times after forgiving me did I turn around and do the same things simply because I knew He would forgive me?  A second chance.  Oh Father, I don’t even feel worthy, yet here you are waiting to give me a second chance.

As I thought about how I nearly lost my life in the dream because what I had done.  I repented and cried out to the Lord.  “Lord, I know that I don’t belong with you because there are so many times I’ve done wrong.  But, Lord I’m tired living the way that I am.  Please forgive me, cleanse me, strengthen me, and make me strong.  All I need right now is just to feel the touch of your precious hand.  Lord please search my heart and show me all my wrongs.  Lord I thank you for giving me a second chance.


Think about it how many second chances has He given you?
  • The times you had one man coming in the front door, while another went out the back door; a second chance.
  • The times you lied to your friend’s husband about where his wife was; a second chance.
  • If you slept around and lied to get that promotion; He’s given you a second chance.
  • The times you prostituted your body; a second chance.
  • Day after day, of living with a man that’s not your husband, a second chance.
  • If you’re fornicating on Saturday night and still alive to sing in the choir on Sunday morning, He’s given you a second chance.
How many times have you taken advantage of His good grace, while running this race?  However, you still hear Him calling your name; He continues to forgive you….


The enemy is out to destroy the women of God.  He has been and will be, unrelenting in his attempts to shame you, strip, and dishonor you in order to challenge God’s work in your lives.  He wants you to believe that because of the life, you have been living you aren’t worthy for the Kingdom of God.  He wants you to give up.  He wants you to think that God can’t use you anymore.  However, I want you to remember the vessels’ God has used in the past to deliver His people.  Moses was a murderer; David slept with another man’s wife and had him killed so he could be with her.  Abraham lied about Sarah being his wife; the list goes on, yet these broken vessels were mighty instruments for the Kingdom of God.

God can use a broken vessel; it’s His specialty.  So no matter what you have done, Jesus is waiting to restore you.  He is waiting with His arms stretched out.  He will never turn you away.  He will never remind you of your past.  No matter what you have done; He loves you.  Everything you think you have done in the dark and nobody knows about; my God has seen.  He knows everything there is to know about you, even those things that you are ashamed to tell your closest friend.  He knows, yet God is waiting for you.

So now it’s time you tell the enemy off:


Tell Satan he is a liar; tell him he has no power over you.
Tell him he cannot sleep in your bed there’s not enough room or cover.
Tell him he can’t touch your body – it’s covered with the blood.
Tell him he cannot enter your home the locks have been changed.
Tell him to take his hands off your children because you’ve had hands laid on them.
Tell him no more tears, heartaches, or pains because you have found another, and He is the lover of your soul.
Tell him God has seen all your faults, and He has forgiven you.
Tell him all your dirty sins have been washed away with the blood of Jesus Christ.
Tell him you have a right to the tree of life.  Why?  Because…

He is the God of a Second Chance (and many many more…)



Your cries have come up before My face, says the Lord.  I hear you asking what to do when it seems that every time you begin the make some progress, the enemy rises up and defeats you again.  Your heart cries for strength and victory, and yet you feel that every step forward is met with stiff opposition that sets you back three paces.  I tell you, beloved, that you must not give up or allow yourself to become a victim and do nothing. 

Refuse to panic or get into a state of feeling inadequate or worthless when things don't work out as you planned.  The test here is to find out for yourself if you really trust Me with the details of your life.  Pick yourself up from the place of disappointment and take the next step forward.  Don't let the weariness of the moment cause you to want to give up. 

You must fight the good fight of faith, and stand believing before the face of the enemy.  Do not give up!  I am on your side, and all the forces of heaven are behind you.  Rise up, knowing that victory is assured.  "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might."  I am with you and for you.  You only need to ask and believe for My mercy, favor, and grace; I will empower you to succeed in reaching your divine destiny.  

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

 2 Cor 4:8-9 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.  We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.


REMEMBER,..There is nothing you will face today that the Lord can't see you through. 
Have a Jesus filled day,

I come now as your counselor, and I say that there are those who wonder what to do about your circumstances, for there have been things occurring that have overwhelmed you and caused a spirit of dread and confusion to come upon you.

You are wondering what to do, for your situation seems hopeless.  But, I say, this is not a hopeless situation for I have given you dominion, authority, power and MY NAME!  And I say, what you must now do is bind the strong man.  Fight the good fight of faith. War a good warfare.  Do you not know and do you not understand that every new move and every new thing that I bring to the earth will be contended for by the enemy?  I say, do not let him have his way!  

Rise up as mighty men and women; suit up in the armour I have provided, take the sword of the Spirit (the Word) and confront the strong man and break the power that is hindering you!  Break the power of the curse!  Exercise by faith the authority that I have given you.  If you will exercise the faith that is within you, a fresh anointing will come forth, and the anointing will break the yoke of every bondage.

Rise up! My Child, Rise up!!! Do not allow the enemy to hold you down any longer.  Come and be filled, for I am the One who will fills your cup, and I am giving you at this time what you need for the season that is ahead of you.

Turn now from all disappointment, despair and heartache, and encourage yourself with this word.  For I AM with you, and if I Am with you, who can be against you, and who shall you fear?  I AM the Anointed One. I am bringing My anointing to you that you may be filled with all fullness and power.  Receive now the yoke-breaking anointing, and then address the strong man in the power of My word and watch him flee from you seven ways, says the Lord.


Matthew 12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

1 Timothy 6:12a Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Psalm 27 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Deut 28:7 “The LORD will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!




REMEMBER,..There is nothing you will face today that the Lord can’t see you through. 

Have a Jesus filled day,

Inspirational Story – The Games We Play, What Are We Doing?



While watching an old movie and I won’t mention the name,  I was amazed at what some women do and put up with to keep a man.  Yes, I hear you say it was only a movie, but you and I both know some women who carry on like that today.  What you saw wasn’t made up; those were some real-life issues.  Ladies, we have got to do better about taking care of ourselves.

I saw four beautiful, successful ladies playing games with their lives (and the men in them) to keep a man.  It was sad watching three of these ladies spend their hard-earned money and their time with some men who truly didn’t deserve them, yet they wanted them.  Why?  Well, I heard one of them say it was because “My baby can lay pipe” Sorry ladies, I have to say it, is that all you want out of a relationship is a pipe layer?  Are you saying to me that God created you to simply be a retainer for pipe?  (That’s as nice as I can say it).  I don’t think so.  Life goes on after the pipe is laid.  The pipe won’t pay the bills or keep a roof over your head.  It may feel good at the moment, but what happens when it’s over?

Life goes on……

I watch these ladies buy clothes for the men, give one man a total makeover, and I mean total makeover.  Allow them to move in with them and the men had no jobs!  Then once they move in, some don’t want to make any commitments because they have been hurt before.  So why are you upset when they don’t want to marry you?  Didn’t you let them move in?  Well, if you wanted to get married, you shouldn’t have made that clear, don’t settle.  They settled; you know why?  You got it, because “Baby can lay pipe.”  Sounds like DEAD WEIGHT to me (I’ll explain what that means later)!

Ladies, you deserve better than this.  Snap out of this!  Stop allowing men or anyone to treat you this way.  They only do this because we allow it.  We have to stop being afraid of being alone.  Start learning to be happy with yourself first, and then you won’t be afraid to walk away from a bad relationship.  However, if you never learn the pleasure of your own company, and how to stand on your own two feet, you will fall for anything that smiles at you and you will never know what true happiness is.  Everything that looks good, and is good to you is not always good for you.


And ladies, if you have been blessed to have a wonderful man in your life, and he makes a mistake, and he is truly sorry for what he has done, FORGIVE HIM when he apologizes.  Don’t do what one lady did in this movie by playing games.  If you know your man has always been straight with you, and has never, ever given you a reason to question his loyalty, again I say FORGIVE HIM.  While you are trying to make him jealous by playing silly games, someone else is moving in.  Why waste all that time playing a game that you may lose to someone else?  Furthermore, ladies, remember, you can’t do what the guys do and still want to be called a lady.

NOW LADIES let’s talk about the beauty of that movie:


I noticed the beautiful relationships the women had with each other.  No matter what was going on in their personal lives,  these ladies were there for each other.  When they talked about each other, and what they were going through with their men, they did it out in the open, not behind each other’s back.  When they thought their girlfriend was being embarrassed in public by her man; they had her back.  I got tickled when one lady said she was going to cut the guy for doing her girl wrong.  Now that’s what I am talking about.  Ok, I know that’s wrong, but you know what I mean.  We need to see more of that in our sisterhood.  (Not the going to cut a person part, lol)  We need more bonding together and a better support system for each other.  Stop putting each other’s business in the street.  When one of us is down, the other one should be there for comfort and support.  Not running and talking about her finances, her man, or whatever the problem is.  True friends are rare; learn to appreciate them.  Now that’s a game that we should be playing!




Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times and a brother is born for adversity.

You’ve been dating him for a while now, and things are going pretty good.  Slowly, you notice he’s not doing some of the things he used to do.  He’s not being as attentive as he once was.  He’s making excuses as to why he can’t come over, and now he wants you to call before you come over to his place

Tell me ladies, what’s going on?  Ok, I think we all know what’s going on.  Someone else is in the picture.  Of course, he’s not man enough to tell us this, and we’re gonna have to have to play Columbo to find out.  And when we find out who is messing with our man, we’re gonna….

Ladies, why is it when we find out that our man is seeing another woman, we turn on the woman?  Is it really the woman’s fault?  Is it right that we take out our frustrations on the woman?  When it’s really the man who has committed the crime (so to speak)?  Doesn’t he recognize that he is (or was) in a relationship?  Didn’t he know that when he said he loved you; he was supposed to be in a monogamous relationship?  So why are you upset with your sister?  Yes, she is with your man, (but he’s not really ours is he?) but she wasn’t the one who made the commitment to you, was she?

Most times the women they are sneaking around with don’t know they are seeing someone’s man until they are caught up in the relationship, then it’s the best woman who will win.  Or so we think it’s the best woman.  Are we really getting a prize when he has been cheating on both of us?  I don’t think so.


So you start calling and hanging up on your sister.  You start spreading rumors about her, but yet you are still talking to the man who cheated on you.  You call the other woman names, yet you tell the man that cheated on you how much you love him; you forgive him, and you know it wasn’t his fault??!!  Ladies, what is wrong with this picture?

Ok, you have forgiven the man, but you are still mad with the sister?  She’s not the one who made endless promises; she’s not the one sleeping with you and spending your money (and he probably spent some on her); she’s not the dropping you off at work (with your car) and picking up someone else.  However, you are mad at your sister, and still calling him “your man.”

When will we learn to stop working against each other and come together?  When will we stop blaming our sisters for what we are allowing to happen to us?  When will we stop falsely accusing the wrong person for the bad things that happen in our relationships?  If he committed the sin, he is guilty.  Your sister didn’t cause this problem; stop taking your anger out on her.  We have got to learn to confront the enemy head-on and call him out.


Quit blaming yourself, and your sister.  Stop being a victim, take responsibility for your actions only, and remove yourself from a bad situation.  You deserve the best; you are special to God, and He wants you to have His best, not handouts from the enemy.

Make a change; embrace the sister whom you’ve hated for no reason.  God wants us to come together, to support each other, to pray for each other, to just be there if only to listen.  God has given each of us talents; she may have a talent that can help you, and you may have a talent which can help her.  How will you know if you don’t stop the bickering, the fighting, the backstabbing, and come together to be a blessing to each other?

Look at the friendship between Mary and Elisabeth.

Scripture reading: Luke 1: 39-42

And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;   And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.  And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:  And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

When Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb.  Just from hearing her voice.  Then it says Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.  Now wouldn’t it be wonderful to be a blessing in your sister’s life this way.  That just the sound of your voice would bring joy, blessings and not curses.  Your voice should fill your sister with love, not anger.  Oh what a time you could have.

Come together and praise the Lord for opening your eyes and exposing the tricks of the enemy, and for delivering both of from a bad relationship.  Together with the Lord you could turn everything around and make the enemy mad and cause him to flee.  Start a support/prayer group, a book reading group or even have a girl’s night just to get out and be with friends.  What the enemy meant for bad, God will turn around and make it for your good (if you let Him).

Stand up and let the enemy know you are not going to take his foolishness anymore.  You see the enemy is depending upon you being weak, and accepting what is happening in your life.  He is depending upon you closing your eyes to the situation, and allowing him to go back and forth between the two of you until neither one of you have anything left to give.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Show him up for what he is….a thief and a liar.  Reach out to your sister and build a strong bond.  Reach out and come together against what the enemy is trying to do to you.  Don’t allow the enemy to destroy the relationship with your sister.  Remember she is not the one who hurt you; he is.  If you are married, she is not the one that stood before the Lord and made a vow for better or worse, in sickness, and health, to death due you part, he did.  If you can forgive him, then you must forgive her as well.    

Lean upon each other, keep each other encouraged.  We all need someone to encourage us when things go wrong.  That’s what friends are for.  Don’t allow him, or anyone to control you anymore.

Stand up as one in the name of Jesus, and stop the enemy from hindering your bond with your sister.




Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

I want you to really meditate on that statement above, because this text is not only applies to our personal relationships, it also applies to our spiritual relationship as well.  However, for this writing let’s deal with the personal side of our life.

A man may do some service to two masters, but he will be truly devoted to only one.  God requires the whole heart, and will not share it with the world.  He, who holds to the world and loves it, must despise God; he, who loves God, must give up the friendship of the world.

The same rule holds true for relationships, whether married or dating.  If you have made a commitment to someone, you are expected to fulfill that vow.  You are expected to love the one you made the commitment to.  Do not settle for loving the one you are with if things don’t work out.  I say; until you can be with the love God brings into your life, give your love to the Lord.  Don’t settle for less.

When you get married, the two of you become one.  Your marriage (love) is honored by God.  For better or worse, in sickness and health, and until death do you part.

What about before you get married?  Well, if you can’t handle being committed to a person when you are dating, what makes you think you are ready to handle seeing the same person the rest of your life?

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterer’s God will judge.


Yes, you will be judged whether or not you are married; you will be judged.

Now let’s talk about being torn between two lovers in a relationship.

You are in a relationship; you have been in it for a while, and you have become very comfortable with each other; I mean really comfortable.  You know how it is, things may have become dull, no excitement anymore, or things may not be going the way you thought they would.  So your mind begins to wonder, and oops along comes an old friend (someone you once had a thing for).  Someone who pushes all the right buttons.  Someone who made you almost forget you even had kids at home (oh yes, there are some women who have done this).  Someone who made you forget you had to go to work the next day, so now you are calling in sick.  Now your mind begins to wonder.  Do you still have a mind?  You begin to wonder if he can still make you feel the way he used to?

So you say why not give him a call, nothing wrong with a phone call.  Right?  The phone call leads to lunch, nothing wrong with a little lunch.  After all you do have to eat, don’t you?  You start to talk about old times, nothing wrong with that.  Lunch leads to another casual meeting after work.  Nothing wrong with that, after all you are out in public (way out).  Do you see where this is heading?  Ok, some of you can’t see where this is leading so let me keep going.

You continue to reminisce about old times; nothing wrong with that, after all you’ve needed a little pick me up.  Then he buys you a little gift to remember him by; it’s just a little gift…

Ok, let me ask you this, “What level of Hell are you going to take this relationship to?”  I want you to know there are different levels you can take it to.  If nothing was wrong with what you have been doing, why haven’t you told your fiancé or husband?  Why do you feel guilty when you go home?  You said nothing was wrong with it.  Yeah right.  If you truly respected and loved the person that you are committed to you would have shared everything with him from the beginning.  Right?  Ok, then something must be wrong with what you were doing.

You say I don’t understand that old love was rekindled?  No, old love wasn’t rekindled, but new lust was.  If you say that you are still in love with the former person, then you need to examine the relationship you are in now.  You can’t be in love with both of them.  Let me remind you:

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.


You are thinking with the wrong thing.  Stop thinking with your heart, it will deceive you.  I didn’t say it, God did:

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Proverbs 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

Neither your heart nor your mind is committed to the Lord if you feel you have to continue with this outside relationship.  If you can’t get him out of your system, ask God for help.  He can and He will help you.  Your heart is telling you that there is nothing wrong with what you are feeling, it’s ok.  Again, I say don’t listen to your heart.  Says who?  Says the word of the Lord.

Matthew 15:19 (BBE) For out of the heart come evil thoughts, the taking of life, broken faith between the married, unclean desires of the flesh, taking of property, false witness, bitter words:

You can’t please God and satan at the same time.  Serving God would be surrendering what you’re doing to the Lord and asking Him to help you resist what you are feeling.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Serving God would be to love Him with all of your heart, soul, and mind, and yield not to temptation.

Serving satan would be to continue to sneak around thinking that no one will ever know or be hurt.  Continuing to allow him to tempt you, to make you think that as long as you ask for forgiveness each time, it’s ok.  Oh my, has satan got you fooled.  That’s not true repentance.  Repentance means you confess your sin(s) to the Lord, you’re remorseful about what you have done, and you DON’T DO IT ANYMORE.  I don’t know what the enemy has been telling you to make you think that you can continue in your sin, and not pay the price.  However, I do know what God says about it.  Your slipping into darkness will lead to death.

James 1:13-15 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

I know you may think that no one else is experiencing what you are going through.  That what you are going through is only happening to you, and there is no way can get out of it.  Ooh how satan has been whispering in your ear.  You see even in the midst of your temptation, God still has you on His mind.  He has made a way for you to escape; oh yes, He will not leave you to die in your sin.  He has made a way for you to escape all you have to do is ask Him.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 




Now, let’s look at this situation from another angle, continue reading…..  more to come……

Have a Love Affair With Jesus

From the inspirational book “Are You Ready To Receive the Love You Desire”


Song of Solomon 8:7   Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.

Every woman dreams of falling in love with Mr. Right and living each day in full passion with him, sharing our most tender and intimate thoughts with that special someone.  It seems as though nothing can compare to the feeling of being in love and living in passion with the one we love.  There is just an emotional natural high that goes along with being in love, you can’t seem to quite put it into words; it’s almost a mystery.

So many of us will spend literally hundreds of dollars buying and reading romance novels, just so they can get a quick sensation of love and pretend to be in that same dream world.  Then you have those who will turn their daily soap opera to get an hour’s worth of this feeling or rent a movie to feel this passion.

Then we get upset with our partner when they can’t provide us with the same type of passion that Victor Newman was providing Nikki on the Young and the Restless.  So all the frustration of living in their fantasy world leads to something worse.  Oh yes, you know what happens next.  Many will begin to have extramarital affairs to get the love they say they aren’t getting at home.  When it’s not that they aren’t getting love at home, they just don’t appreciate what they have been blessed with.  Therefore any excuse justifying what they are doing will suffice.  “He doesn’t look as good as he did when we first got married, or started dating” Do you?  “He doesn’t pay me as much attention as he used to” When was the last time you appreciated him?  and “They are not satisfying my needs” Do you even know what you need?  Finally you have those who will only dream of this feeling and never actually be able to feel the realness of this gratifying feeling.

Where is love and romance?  Is it in the music that we listen to on our radios?  I don’t think so.  Our problem is we get too eager to fall in love and to feel that touch, that what we may settle for is lust and not really true unconditional love; with passion and intimacy.  Is it that we are looking in all the wrong places, and why are so many looking for love in all the wrong places?  Why are you looking anyway?  Stop looking and be found.

The place that each and every one of us can find true love is simply by opening up the word of God and falling in love with Jesus.  We then learn who Our Lord is, then we draw even nearer and get to know him better, and then we grow into a personal relationship with Jesus.  We make personal time alone with just him.  Just you and Jesus.  He is the true One that can set our hearts a flame with the love and passion that we so desire.  He has given each of us this feeling of desire; many just focus this desire toward individuals of the world and not for the true meaning of this feeling that He has equipped us all with.

Until we can come to the place of putting Jesus first in this area, we will never be completely satisfied with any relationship that we have.  True contentment of these feelings comes when we are on fire for the One who gave His life for us, that is Jesus Christ.  Do you want to fall in love?  Do you want to feel His touch?  Do you want to feel Him running through your heart and soul?  If your answer is yes, then fall in love with Jesus.  Have a love affair with Jesus first and you will experience the greatest love you can ever imagine when that special someone comes into your life; all because you chose to put Jesus first.

Lord, I'm Hurting


Psalm 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;

How did this happen again?  How did I end up here?  I thought they were the one.  They said they loved me, and it felt so right.  I gave my all to them and yet here I am again… hurting.

Does that sound familiar?  You’re going from relationship to relationship searching for that special someone, only to have your heart broken time after time.  As I have told you before, God never told you to search for anyone.  He said if you would delight yourself in Him, He would give you your heart’s desire.  Listen to what He said; He would give you your heart’s desire.  He will give them to you.  Do you not believe His word?  Why do you think it is impossible for the Lord to be concerned about your love life?  Didn’t He say cast all your cares upon Him?

If He wasn’t concerned about you being alone, He never would have made a man and woman.  Didn’t He say it wasn’t good for man to be alone?  He promised to supply your every need.  Why do you think that only applies to your material needs?  When He said your every need, He meant just that.  If you have a need in your life, He is concerned.

How did you end up here, again you ask?  Well, you continue to keep using the wrong products to try and solve a problem that is more than skin deep.  You used the wrong things to attract what you thought was going to be the love of a lifetime.  Instead what you got was something which only lasted through the night.  You used Maybelline, Cover Girl, Flori Roberts, Christian Dior, Victoria Secret and last, but certainly not least you used sex to attract the person you thought you wanted.  Oh that may have gotten you a few movie dates, some dancing, and a couple of dinners (if you were lucky), but then you were right back where you started.  You ended up with someone who only wanted what they could get from you, and most of the time it’s your body, and not a loving and caring relationship.
