This is the post excerpt.
It’s 2/20/17, and it is such a beautiful day to start Women of Beautiful Shades Blog (WBSB). It’s 72 degrees in the low country of SC and I am super excited to start this blog. I have procrastinated for a few years and now is the time after being motivated by a few close friends.
On this page you will find parts of my life, along with others, bringing to you various topics. No filters, “Real Talk”, but clean daily life highs and lows we all go through and how we have gotten through them. Everyone who is involved is excited to get this path ready to see where it takes us. WBSB is ready to share with the world: our thoughts, experiences, relationship views, and so much more. All are welcome to come walk with us as we let our hair down, get real, laugh, motivate, and inspire. We thank all of you in advanced. Now lets walk and talk!!!
Great morning all, today’s scripture is about action. Jesus stood in the gap for our sins, and not His own. Therefore, we must walk as He walk if we say we know Him. Are we such a selfish people to say we know Him but refuse to keep His commandments? I was selfish for many years and said I knew Him. I lied to myself and others. I’m so grateful and humble that I come to Him with a repentful heart, saddened about all thetimes I took what He did for little ole me for granted. He wants to know us, the ones He stood in the gap for. Who else you know will die for our sins, our wrong doings, and then say Father God forgive them? Can we name one person? I don’t know one, not even myself……Real talk!!!
1 John 2:1-6
2 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
The Test of Knowing Him
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
It feels good when you can be free. If you are in bondage pray and ask God to heal you, deliver you, break every chain, free you from bondage and set you free from the things in life that hold us down like: fear, doubt, jealousy, envy, hatred, insecurity, self pity, unforgiveness, lust of the flesh, greed, stinking thinking, fornication, adultery, procrastination, laziness, idolatry, pride, gossiping, being bragful or boastful, looking down on others, and anything else you may struggle with. Declare that these things come out of your life right now in the name of Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in you. You cannot do this on your own, but the Holy spirit has to do it. Get in the Word and as the Holy Spirit reveal things to you he can do a work in you if you allow him to. So start on your road to Freedom. Real Talk!!!
This video speaks volumes. What the devil means for evil God can still turn it around for good. Look at God!!!
Being transparent does not only help the person that’s telling their story but others who are listening to help them overcome. Transparency is a part of healing. I love how Mary J Blige is always so transparent and what she goes through which is what helps a lot of other women who have gone through similar situations. Click the link below to hear some of her story. Real Talk!!!
Happy Thursday, today let’s be mindful of the words we speak. Ask yourself do your words bring forth life or death, negative or positive, uplift and edify or tear down others or even yourself. When you are able to answer this then you know what’s truly in heart. Let’s make that change if we need to starting today. Remember life and death are in the power of the tongue. Real Talk!!!
A Tree Known by Its Fruit
33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart[p] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Great morning all, Today’s Scriptures are:
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
As I read the scripture it captured my attention that Joseph was a “just man”, so the question came to me how many of us are just? Joseph had the opportunity to put Mary on blast for something he felt like she did wrong to him but he did not. Let’s not be so quick to put people, what we think is an offense to us, on blast to others. Find out what is really going on first. The situation may not be what it appears to be. 💞Be blessed!!!
