#spiritualsundays: Suffering In Silence

Do you want to tell your business to just anyone? No, you would want it to be someone that you trust, admire, and/or respect. People that possess these types of qualities will listen and give you the best advice possible and/or pray with you or for you. Everyone needs someone that they can talk too that will be non-judgmental and help them to get to a positive resolution.

  • If you don't have someone to confide in; talk/pray to the one who is always there: your Heavenly Father

How many have had people turn their backs on them; when you finally decided to confide in them? How did it make you feel? 

  • You can be honest I think we all have been here; just remember nobody is perfect! Not even the person looking down at you!

It can be their word usage as well! I remember a few times that I confided in someone and they constantly said "I told you so!" Made me feel like crap every single time and didn't help me in my time of need; but it did show me that I can't just talk with everyone because many people can't handle what you're going through.

  • Remember also that much of what we have to face is or could be a learning process! Is their a lesson to be learned?

Why is it that we are so quick to turn our backs on someone when they need us the most?  Now, none of us are perfect but may I suggest that we pray for others instead of being tempted to judge them

  • Praying doesn't take long and it could be so simple: Father help them, Father save them, Father forgive them.

Pray that they change their behavior and turn from their negative ways.

1. If someone is having sex and not married; pray!
2. If someone can't stop stealing; pray! 3. If someone has lost their way; pray
4. If someone is dealing with anger issues, pray!
5. If someone loves to gossip more than lending a helping hand, pray!

In one of my books I wrote that people get comfortable being in gangs, cults, bad relationships, etc because they aren't judged! They are fully accepted for who they are! These types of relationships exist because the other party can see that the individual is missing something in their life and they seek to fill that void; even though it creates more harm than good!

These people want to push their one-sided agenda and they will succeed by any means necessary.

Pray……

"

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God". 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)

Kingdom Gals: No Woman Left Behind

Today September 2, 2017 starts the first of blogs that will discuss all things pertaining to women. It could be about single women, single moms, women in general, self esteem, finding love, getting saved, being celibate, getting over a bad relationship, finding your voice; you name it.

The way this world is setup we need all the help we can get! So many people are out for themselves and what they can accomplish but what about your fellow sister, friend, cousin, neighbor, and even your foe? Why be part of the problem when you can be part of the solution?

This world can be so much better if we could work towards being more loving and kind. Women will hate on another women for no reason at all! I have been on the receiving end of it myself. Walk in a room and the hateful looks come out of nowhere and the crazy thing about it; it's always from women that don't know you! Don't know who you are, whose you are, what you represent, etc. Why is that? Is there really an honest response that can be given?

In order to grow many times a conversation is needed, a dialogue, a change of heart; or a come to Jesus moment!

Some of us may not know what it looks like to love, encourage, motivate, inspire, empower and cheer on the next woman.

Take a look at the scripture below from the Book of Ruth; and when you get some quiet time read about Ruth, Naomi and their relationship.

Ruth 1:16-18

"But Ruth replied, 'Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.' When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her". (NIV)
