Loyalty

Image result for cheating woman quote

Recently, I receive a Prophetic Word that spoke about how God was going to reward my loyalty. Now, I am not boasting, but I have to say the prophecy was true. I am definitely loyal. I would never tell a man that I was deeply in love with him and then give myself to another man. I would stay loyal until the end.

You might be wondering why I would bring that up, but I know many women who have and would and continue to do that. I am not talking about men because I am not a man, but in this day an age, some woman are not as loyal as they used to be.

Men are often shocked when their mate cheats on them. But when that happens it show the true character of that woman because usually women are loyal and want a man who is loyal. So when a woman cheats on your it’s who she is.

So what happens if a woman is unfaithful to you? Should you forgive her. Well, if you’re already married, I don’t have the answer to that, but what I will say is that if you haven’t married her yet, you should thank God that you haven’t taken that step and keep it moving because God has someone better for you. And what He has for you is LOYALTY!

That it all.

Fighting for My Promise!

Psalm 62:11 New International Version (NIV)
11 One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,

Just recently, I was paging through Instagram and  I saw words of warning that let me know that I should not be moved by anything I saw or heard. Well right after that I saw something that challenged my faith. I was so grateful to God that because of the warning, what I saw meant nothing. I was stunned at how quickly God gave me a heads up. Right after that the Lord showed me something else was coming that would seemingly rock my faith, but again, God gave me the heads up.

I have been in a very dark place where faith is concerned. As time passes and you get older you sometimes lose faith. In the past I was always the one who would encourage and I had very strong faith, but not as of late.

But this morning God gave me a key and I am going to use it daily. And what’s the key? Using the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. So that is what I am going to start doing.

Nothing is going to stop God’s promises from coming to pass. Why? Because:

2 Corinthians 1:20 New International Version (NIV)

20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

I will stay strong and believe no matter how long it takes. Why: Because:

Habakkuk 2:3 King James Version (KJV)

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Apply God’s word. And no matter what BELIEVE in what He has said, not in what you want or what wants you!

P.S. I had to comeback and share a Rhema that was given to me recently and the Prophet said:

They will NOT take anything else from you, THIS IS THE END, GOD made a NEW WAY for you!!!

The Kind Of Man I Desire

receprionist I started a new job in June and I am loving where I am working right now! We are a very productive office, but there is a lot of joy and laughter where I am working. The other thing that I am enjoying is meeting a lot of interesting men surrounding work. None of them are eligible, but they are all different and interesting. It just seems like God wants to me pay attention to the type of man I desire. I am learning what I do and do not want.

First let’s start with the man that lives in my building. I think I mentioned him in another blog. Let’s call him Joe. Well I didn’t realize it for a while, but I now see that Joe is really interested in me. I mentioned before that I was not interested, but recently I had to admit to my girlfriends that I am both attracted to him and flattered by his attention. Now, that does not mean I am interested in a relationship, it just means I think he is handsome.

Joe has done a few things that have completely turned me off. I think I mentioned this before, but one day I needed help with my groceries, but he refused to help. I realize he was looking for something in return. He couldn’t just be a gentlemen and help me with my groceries from the taxi to the elevator. Recently, Joe decided to do volunteer work at my job. Coincidence? I don’t think so. As soon as I told him where I was working he ended up volunteering there, the very next week after I told him. Then recently, we hadn’t seen each other for a while (I come in at 1:00 PM and he works in the morning) and the next time I saw him, he complimented me on my new hair style and lipstick and told me how much he had missed me. But even though I am flattered by handsome Joe’s attention, he still is not my cup of tea. One quality I want is a man who is naturally a gentlemen, meaning he doesn’t have to be told and doesn’t have to work at it. That is just who he is. Joe is not that.

So next there is someone else at work who we will call Kevin. He is a hard-working, handsome man who is very friendly, even flirty, but he flirts with a lot of woman. Recently, he introduced me to his “woman” who he explained to me was only his woman from 6:00 PM to 9:00 AM in the morning! Can you imagine a man saying that?? What’s crazy, is she is a beautiful young woman, but he is still not satisfied. So what do I see in Kevin that’s interesting? Well he really is a great conversationalist. I realize that I absolutely love to listen to an interesting man talk!

Now I know Kevin says crazy things on occasion. He told me a tall tale on Friday and I believed every word and then he told me it wasn’t true. lol But I still love having conversations with him. He took the time to explain to me how men think as opposed to women and it was interesting. Very insightful! I love that quality about Kevin. I wouldn’t do well with a man who cannot stimulate me with great conversation. But Kevin is a player or it’s least that is what he exhibits and I want a man who is faithful. I enjoy talking to Kevin, but I doubt he is faithful.

Finally there is Jimmy who was my job counselor. He was the man who was instrumental in me getting into the place where I am working now. I think I also mentioned him previously. He is married and I rarely see him now. Now physically, I am not as attracted to him as the other men. But honestly he is probably most like what I want spiritually. He talks about the Lord with ease and has a relationship with God. But it’s not just all spiritual. But he is most like me. Spiritual is who we are and so it’s easy to talk to someone like this. Both Joe and Kevin go to church, but they are different. But if Jimmy was single, I would definitely be able to settle down with this type of man.

The rest of the guys at the job are very young. Too young to consider, but they are still interesting. They are mostly looking for attention which I won’t give to them because I am old enough to be their mother. One of them wants to be called “Big Sexy” or Mr. XXX and the other one is always saying “it’s hard to stay sexy”. lol It’s really hilarious. But I ignore that because I just won’t go there.

So there it is. I am learning. I can’t wait to meet the man who I can connect with on all levels. Spiritually, a great conversationalist and good to look at. So what do I have to offer? I think I have a lot to offer. I am am intelligent, a great talker, highly organized and a good cook with old school values. I’ve been called “pretty” all of my life. But, sadly, I still feel I have not “arrived” yet. I need a little more time. But when he comes, I plan to be ready!!

Recently I had a discussion with a co-worker and he was talking about his church, but there was only one problem; he seemed to despise his church and everything that was going on there. I asked him how he felt about his church and why he wouldn’t leave if he was unhappy. Well he’s young, so he explained he was only there to keep his grandmother happy!

Long story short, I found out this young man who is an elder at his church is not even saved!! He is into Buddhism, Yoruba..some of everything. This got me thinking about Christianity in today’s world.

I keep seeing celebrities talking about Christianity and I realize a lot of them have been exposed to Christianity or have been in the church, but a good deal of people don’t have a clue what true Christianity is all about! I noticed a celebrity recently talking about Jesus and praying, but in the next breath she was talking about burning sage! This is why people are so confused and why the state of  the church is so weak.

As I get older I can see that the we are getting away from the Bible and anything goes. You know longer hear any preachers talk about winning the lost, salvation, being baptized in the Holy Spirit, and the big one is Hell. People don’t talk about judgment, the penalty for sin, holiness or the rapture. Basically, today’s Christianity is about positive thinking, getting what you want from God and having a good life. It’s a lot of fluff.

Recently, a man posted on Facebook and exposed one of the popular “Prophets” for sleeping with his wife. This “Prophet” has a long rumored history of fornicating with women all over the country, yet he continues to “minister” all over the country. There is also another story of another minister who got a parishioner pregnant. He denied being the father, but after he was proven to be the father, he told the young lady if she didn’t abort the baby God would judge her. Can you believe that??

The truth is the church is suffering from the lack of true leadership and truth. Sound doctrine is absent from the church today, so people think their brand of Christianity is right. People only preach the easy stuff and hardly anyone is preaching righteousness. Personally, I want to hear a message that challenges me to change. I don’t want to only hear messages that make me feel comfortable all the time. I want to hear the MEAT of Gods word because I have long since graduated from the milk. God help us to get back on track!!

2 Peter 3:17-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

17 Therefore, [let me warn you] beloved, knowing these things beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of [a]unprincipled men [who distort doctrine] and fall from your own steadfastness [of mind, knowledge, truth, and faith], 18 but grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor, majesty, splendor), both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

RIP Aretha Franklin

There is not much to say other than I shed a few tears when I heard of Aretha Franklin’s passing. I didn’t know her, but my first thought was that we would never hear that Voice live ever again. It’s the same way I felt when my mother passed away. My mother also had an extraordinary singing voice, but more operatic. I remember the sadness I felt thinking I would never heard my mother sing again. I think that’s why I felt that way with Aretha as well. It’s a blessing to have so many wonderful performances by Aretha and I have decided to share 4 of my favorites. There are so many. Enjoy!!!

 

 

When You’re Not Interested

See the source imageSo there is man that lives in my building and he is interested in me, but I am not interested in him. He’s not bad looking and he’s funny but we just don’t have much in common. And there is no spiritual connection at all. He would be a nice friend, but I know he is looking for more than friendship.

Sometimes  when you are bored or lonely you find yourself considering people that you probably should not. But I realize that if I go out with him, he will get the wrong impression and think that I am interested, but the truth is I’m not. I’m flattered, but just not interested.

I have a counselor in my building who I see occasionally (for the services my building offers) and he is a married man, but he would be more of what I am looking for in a mate. He has a strong relationship with God and we connect (friend-wise) on that level. I thank God that he is my counselor because through him, I have learned what I am really looking for. And don’t worry. I have zero feelings for this man. He is my counselor and friend and like a brother. A brother-in-Christ.

I am not looking for a mate. I am looking to be found. But I am looking for certain qualities in a mate and I rarely meet men who I connect with. It’s rare. I believe God has someone for me and I realize my spirit has been somewhere else for a long time, but again, I am looking to be found. I am working hard preparing for that, but I definitely don’t want to lead anyone on when I am not interested.

If you are thinking about passing the time with someone who you know you don’t want to be with, don’t do it. Boredom is not a good reason to date because you may end up hurting someone and creating false hope.

Proverbs 18:22 New King James Version (NKJV)

22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the Lord.

Hebrews 13:4 King James Version (KJV)

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
