As the proverb goes you can be a wise woman and build up your house or a foolish woman and tear it down with your own hands. In this video I talk more about what it looks like to be a foolish woman
As the proverb says if it is within your power to act you need to not withhold goods. That could mean an employee to an employer, someone God had put on your heart, or a person that needs to borrow from you.
Meditating on God’s Word is not only biblical but such a great tool to use to understand more what the Bible says and to learn more about who God is. Today’s video we do a little exercise on meditating on the verse of the day to help you know what it looks like
Like the Psalmist said God is good, God’s love endures forever and the Lord is faithful from generation to generation. In this devotion we dive a bit more into those three descriptions of God. Psalm 100
When we are in pain, sorrow, or just have a lot of why questions we can start to challenge, blame, or manipulate God. For Job it couldn’t get worse and so with his words he started to challenge the Lord. Well the Lord had some pretty hard questions for Job.
Job had everything taken away from him but on some level he knew that he needed to praise God and worship Him. Even when we don’t understand, even when we don’t know the why God is still good and worthy to be praised.
Whether good, bad, happy, sad, tragic, or triumph your immediate response should be Worship. Why, because it is so powerful and will help you in any circumstance. Job was such a great example of worshiping God immediately in his darkest hour.
The Lord is so good at turning sorrow into gladness and mourning into joy. He did that when the Jews were going to be annihilated and the Lord turned it around to where they could defend themselves and save their family.
When you do something so right or say something on point but you don’t get promoted, praise, or recognized like you should. Just know that God is in control and delaying it for the right time. Mordecai saved the king from assassination but didn’t get recognized for a while after it happened. But when He did it literally saved his life.
Your kids do in fact hear you! When you get instructions, what you or what you speak over them. You may feel like the don’t listen but when they are faced with situations your voice will be in their head leading them in the choices they make. Esther was raised by Mordecia and even when He wasn’t around she still heard his voice in her head.
