"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, th
Throughout 2006 I decided to do a study on Proverbs 31 via a blog. It was partly an exercise to practice using the software and I'd always wanted to explore this book in greater details so combining the two seemed an ideal way to do it. I had no idea that the blog would end up being a very popular one which still draws in thousands of visitors every month a year after I began writing it.
During the course of doing this study it became clear to me that the Proverbs 31 Woman a
Ok let's keep it all the way onehunnit. Nowadays people could care less about knowing Yah and loving Him for real. People just want to live how they want. In an interview to support his new album Jesus Piece, The Game said he should be able to wake up and smoke a blunt, then go to church and from church go to a strip club and it’s all good. See nowadays people only care about material things. And that’s even leaked into the church. You have preachers and teachers that teach that you can have c
You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near
There is not a marriage counselor, self-help book, or marriage retreat that can save a marriage as much as the Bible. God’s Word is equipped to provide help for whatever circumstances we face while married.
Here are ten verses that can help to save and heal your struggling marriage. They are verses to remind us what love is and what God has created in your union with your spouse.
“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not pu
"I'm speechless, in awe—words fail me.Job 40:3
I should never have opened my mouth!
I've talked too much, way too much.
I'm ready to shut up and listen."
In the above passage, prior to Job being rendered speechless...he had approached and questioned God. When God begins to respond Job snaps back to reality and realizes who he is talking to. When confronted with God's awe, power and maje

You Are Not A Goon Part 1
I know I'll get called a hata’. But the truth is, this is not hate. It’s love. I could not tell you the truth if I didn't love you! The truth is, it’s the enemy's goal to keep you dumb, blind, and in bondage. Then he can control you. So he uses B.E.T, movies, and music to make you think that if you read books and try to better yourself you’re a “lame” or you’re trying to be white. That’s a lie! The enemy wants you to think if you call yourself a nigga, and the baddest
I love the movie Pretty Woman. I have seen this movie countless times, and each time I look at it, I get a fresh outlook on life. It’s like a modern upgrade of Cinderella. The story focuses on a young woman living a degraded lifestyle and a rich business man who offers to pay her to be his date at elite business and social functions.
In one of the scenes, Vivian, the lead character, struts into an elegant ladies’ boutique on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. I

citizen, and a good spouse. I also believe in teaching how to live a long healthy life with less disease and illness. Yeah, I know. The Bible is old. Nowadays we have a lot of advancements in medicine and nutrition. But I believe the bible contains wisdom and knowledge from Yahweh himself. And I believe this knowledge is timeless. People read and study the bible for spiritual issues, learn how to be a
"You know the next commandment pretty well, too: 'Don't go to bed with another's spouse.' But don't think you've preserved your virtue simply by staying out of bed. Your heart can be corrupted by lust even quicker than your body. Those leering looks you think nobody notices—they also corrupt." Matthew 5:28 (The Message)

"Wisdom is the principal thing"
Therefore get wisdom. " Proverbs 4:7 a-b. New King James Version. (NKJV)
Since creation, the roles of wisdom in the affairs of mankind cannot be over-flogged. Both in the life of a man and a woman who are created in the image and likeness of God their Creator. Confirm this in Genesis 1:26.
As a woman, it is not a difficult thing to know whether or not you are wise. You only need to look at yourself closely well and ask yourself salient quest
Get the word out. Teach all these things. And don't let anyone put you down because you're young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching. And that special gift of ministry you were given when the leaders of the church laid hands on you and prayed—keep that dusted off and in use.1 Timothy 4:11-14 (The Message)

I want to let you know you are doing a great job fathers of the this great nation and worldwide, but there is more to be accomplished with our time here. We must beat the drum for Championship Fathering! As you know God has called us fathers to do more than stand on the sidelines and watch our families fall apart and fail. It truly is time for all us fathers to plant our feet in the ground and make a stand to guide the physical, mental, and spiritual destiny of our families
