"God's kingdom is like ten young virgins who took oil lamps and went out to greet the bridegroom. Five were silly and five were smart. The silly virgins took lamps, but no extra oil. The smart virgins took jars of oil to feed their lamps. The bridegroom didn't show up when they expected him, and they all fell asleep.
 "In the middle of the night someone yelled out, 'He's here! The bridegroom's here! Go out and greet him!'
 "The ten virgins got up and got their lamps ready. The silly virgins s

Work hard at whatever you do. You will soon go to the world of the dead, where no one works or thinks or reasons or knows anything. Ecc 9:10

I kinda like the King James version of that verse best, it reads whatever thy hands find to do, do it with all thy might! Sounds like a Noble declaration doesn't it? Well, it is. In modern-day language, it would read "Get ya hustle on and stay on the grind cause it will be over before ya know it and then it will be too late!

This phase of our lives he

Christianity today is a business. The goal of most businessmen is to tell consumers what they want to hear so you can sell your product and get bodies in their doors. One of the lies people get in the advertising from many churches today is that you can be in the world and of the world. It’s ok now you end up individual people with no power and no influence. I want to talk with you about “being a man of influence” and in doing that we will compare the ministry of Lot with the ministry of Abrah

Today’s talk is about Bibles & Guns and the way we look at their role in our society. People have different views of their purposes and necessity. Today we will challenge some of these views and hopefully give another perspective on the subject.

Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon. -Isaiah 55:6-7
   There is an old saying, "You can run but you can't hide!"

I am often amused when I look at how most of us respond to God's call... we run! We either pull the I'm not worthy bit or we start stu-ttt-tt-ttteeerrring like Moses did or then there is the

Sometimes, your fears may overwhelm you to the point that you feel like giving up. When this happens, the next step is to put your faith in God. Using the help of God can make a big difference in overcoming your fears, anxieties, and depression.

The one source that a woman should use as a basis in managing their fears and anxieties is using God as a basis in dealing with their fears. The power of God is the one power that is stronger than your fears and anxieties. Also, God

Being A  dedicated Christian, for real, is not easy. The world has its own system; the “church” has a system, And Yahweh has A system. It’s  easier to follow the “world” or the church’s systems than to follow God. This world that we are in is not a friend to Yahweh or his people. Whether we like it or not, if you are a Christian there is a conflict between us and the world because we have different attitudes. In the Book of Matthew chapter 5-7 in the Bible, we see what has become known as The

In this age modern technology, more and more gadgets are being created to occupy our time. Need to waste time...there's an app for that.

Seriously, we are constantly being bombarded by attacks from WMD's Weapons of Mass Distraction. Now more than ever it is of most importance to have some time set aside where you turn off all the noise and listen to what God has to say.

Today's Challenge: Spend some quiet time with the Father. Tune everything else out, and listen for that soft still voice of

Be inspired by these Wednesday quotes to be the best you can.

Wednesday is an interesting day; some refer to it as hump day, a day which is halfway through the week. Once you get over the day you are on the way to the weekend. Some find Wednesday as the longest day of the week, they feel like Friday will never come.

And others look forward to Wednesday because it allows them a day to accomplish their goals. For people who love what they do they would prefer it to be Monday. They hate to see t

I can still remember the moment when I came face-to-face with a real Proverb 31 woman for the first time.

I was a struggling baby Christian, trying to figure out how I, a recovering daughter of the women's movement, was ever going to learn to be quiet and subservient.

After all, that is what a Christian woman is - Right?

But, then I met her.

Sure, I had met other Christian women in church. But, there was something different about her.

She wasn't a church mouse. But, she

The need ( or a lot of times want) to feed yourself, is one of the strongest and most basic drives that a person has. And it’s one of the first drives you get. When you were a baby, and you got hungry, you cried and cried until you ate. No matter what time it was. Anybody can have a normal life as long as they are eating when they need to. But if we go without food for a long time your body starves to death. Well, we have to understand that spiritual hunger works just like physical hunger. Yahw

When our hands are too full, even to address our needs, how do we summon enough faith to plan for the future? To overcome that feeling of spiritual despair, we cannot focus on our losses; instead, remember that God will always utilize whatever we have left to perform a miracle. It might not seem like we possess enough stuff to make something of significance, and it may very well be our last, but give it all to God anyway! When we provide it to God first, He’ll open up a channel of bles

Woman, lady, female, miss, Mrs., or madam, whatever you title yourself to be you are a woman or are you? What is the true meaning of a woman? What is she created to be? What are her true qualities and characteristics?
God's created plan for a woman is a spectacular and phenomenal being. She is filled with inner beauty and grace. For she knows that her exquisiteness lies not in skin, hair, figure or attire but in the treasures of her Spirit. She is as her creator, wise, glori

A MOTHER'S DAY THOUGHT

by Anna Ashby-Caison  

My favorite Mothers' Day scripture is found in Isaiah 49:15-16. Here the Lord personifies His love for His people as a nursing mother.

"Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;" (KJV)

What an awesome expression of love. In its context, Israel is in captivity to her enemies as a result of her disobedience to Go

Our inner beauty is from God. We have His love, compassion, power and heart within us. It's up to us as mighty women of God, to activate these unfailing(DNA) traits. We are virtuous women, our price is far above rubies. You can't put a price on God's daughters. We have the mind of Christ! The joy of the Lord is our strength. Our roar is as the Lion of Judah. We see others and ourselves through the eyes of God. We thank you heavenly Father for graciously giving us our inner be

I’m a scorekeeper. I’m competitive by nature. I like to win. Even if I’m playing “Go Fish” with my kids, I play to win. When I first got married 12 years ago, I liked to see an even playing field for everything. I’ll cook, he can clean. I’ll do laundry, he can do dry cleaning. When kids came into the picture, I’ll do baths on M/W/F, he can do baths on T/Th/S. I’ll wake up early with the kids on Saturday, he can wake up early on Sunday. Seems blissful, right? Seems like a great partnership, rig

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 b****, you’re keeping

When did it become an 'every mother for herself' world? Didn't it used to be a sisterhood of women raising their children together once upon a time?


I think often of what that would be like. To have the women in your life around you supporting you and befriending you. And how you would do the same for them. I imagine children playing while their moms sit together giggling about what silly thing their husband said to them this morning. Or how little Johnny got in trouble
