Improving My Prayer Life in 2017

prayer life

Like most of us, my life is pretty busy. From the moment I wake up until the time that I go to bed, it seems like there is always something that needs to be done. I have always made it a priority to begin my day with prayer and seeking God through reading the word. I also make a habit of worshiping and talking to Him throughout the day but lately, it just doesn’t feel like it’s enough. There are days that I feel like maybe I […]

The Virtuous Woman Pt. 5 | She Takes Care Of Home

Virtuous Woman Trustworthy

Proverbs 31: 21-22 & 27 “When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed;     she is clothed in fine linen and purple.”  “She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” Let’s be real for a moment—adulting is hard. No one really likes bills, errands, or folding laundry but they are all necessary annoyances that need to be taken care of to ensure that the wheel […]

The Virtuous Woman Pt. 4 | She’s Gracious

Virtuous Woman Trustworthy

Proverbs 31: 20 & 26 // “She opens her arm to the poor and extends her hand to the needy” “She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction on her tongue” What does it mean to be gracious?

She was gracious in caring for her family, she was gracious in her businesses […]

Virtuous Woman Trustworthy

Proverbs 31:13-15 & 17 // “ She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.” “She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.” One of my favorite qualities in the Proverbs 31 woman is that she’s a dedicated hard worker. Verse 13 says, “She selects wool and flax with […]

The Virtuous Woman Pt. 1 | She’s Trustworthy

Virtuous Woman Trustworthy

The wife of noble character described in Proverbs 31 is a whole lot of things. She’s smart, she’s caring, she’s hardworking—but at the heart of all of these things, she’s trustworthy. Her husband trusts her, her children trust her, and the people of her community depend on her. To be a virtuous woman is to be a woman that holds true to her values and trustworthiness should always be a value that remains at the top of the list. Take a look at verse 11: […]

Spiritual Survival Kit// Every Verse You’ll Ever Need To Know About Peace

Peace

So often we mistake peace for a feeling or a state of being when really, it’s a perspective. A perspective in which we keep our hearts and minds totally on Jesus and acknowledge that He is bigger than whatever is trying to disturb our peace . When we base our peace on our surroundings and the ebbs and flows of life, it’s easy to lose sight of it because it becomes just as fickle as situational happiness. But when we look to the only real […]
