Keep on trusting 

Remember do not follow your own understanding or will but put all your trust in the Lord. Apart from him we are nothing and we can do nothing.

Proverbs 3:5-7

“Trust in the Lord with all thins heart; and lean not into thins own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him? And hebshall dorect thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear( reverence, repect) the Lord, and depart from evil.”

Secret Sins Series: “Okay, This Is The LAST Time”

NORingNOSheets.com

SSS Post PhotoYou tell yourself that this is the last time while mentally crossing your fingers behind your back. You hate that empty feeling after you’re done but you just can’t seem to stop. You know it’s wrong, but you have to give your flesh what it wants because if you don’t, you won’t be fulfilled. A few minutes later, the disgust settles in. You feel dirty, sick, and mad at yourself, but a large part of you feels satisfied. You want to please God, you know deep down that it’s wrong, but there’s something that won’t allow you to stop.

You rationalize with yourself thinking it’s kind of okay because you’re not having premarital sex, fornicating with some random person. But if only you knew the sin you were committing against your own body, it doesn’t take the penetration of a living, breathing being made in the image of God…

Black Lives: Can We Save Ourselves?

I agree with a lot that was said. I think we (blacks) do cause this on our selves not all but some. How many black on black crimes happen? How many blacks actually live up to the stereostypes? The black community need to do better of we want people to treat us better. We don’t treat ouraelves wi th respect so why so we expect others to treat us with respect. Now i know not every black person does wrong or kill another but the majority do and i feel that’s what people look at.

For a while, after Ferguson, I had a difficult time taking a stance regarding the “Black Lives Matter” movement. I chose to remain silent on the issue until I could at least wrap my head around my own thoughts. There is no doubt that black lives matter; but when pondering on the solution I struggled with where to begin. Our judicial system has been corrupt and oppressive since the beginning of time so it makes sense that we think judicial reformation is the solution. Maybe. There is absolutely no excuse for innocent lives to be lost due to ignorance and fear. Period. Black. White. Or others. What is most disturbing to me and many others is that no one has been held accountable for these careless and ignorant acts.  I’m biased because I am black and I have four younger brothers who currently reside in predominately white communities. My body temperature increases at…

Why I Dropped Out Of College

Great Testimony!

WIDOOCOn November 22, 2014 at 11:45 AM, I withdrew from the University of Florida.It wasn’t a sporadic choice or an action done out of the “heat of the moment”. It was a decision to obey the voice of God telling me that it was time to leave.

Halfway into September, The Lord had been pressing on my heart that He wanted me to leave UF because my purpose had been fulfilled and the time had come in which He wanted me to fully devote my time, heart and talents to edify, uplift and build upon my lot of land in His Kingdom. I questioned whether or not I had heard God right, whether or not I was making the right choice and everything else you could think to ask or ponder upon.

Shortly after my twenty-first birthday on October 6th, God used one of my sweet…

Sexual Sin

Jess and her husband have become very busy people, but they make sure they spend time with God even with the high demands of their jobs. When Jess and her husband first got married they both were just entering into their careers; so they had plenty of time to spend with each other and devoting their time together to God and praising him. As time went on and promotions came the less time they would spend intimately together besides going to church and reading God’s word. When it came time for them to be one with each other Jess was either too tired or her husband had to stay late and finish up some projects at work. There were a lot of excuses on both if their parts in why they didn’t have time to be one on a more regular basis besides maybe 2 or 3 times in a month.

With the lack of the oneness in their marriage Jess’s mind began to wander when spending time with a co-worker of the opposite sex, satisfied the loneliness she was beginning to feel emotionally. Upon her receiving this attention by just casual conservation with her male co-worker Jess began to start lusting after him. Once she was convicted about it she immediately began praying and she confessed her sins to God and then her husband. God led them both to 1 Corinthians 7:3-5.

There are times in our lives where we allow ourselves to become to busy to be intimate or one with our spouses. Or we are too angry with them, too tired etc. that we say no maybe later or tomorrow.  That is exactly what the devil wants because we have no self control already and you just gave the devil room to come in and destroy.  1 Corinthians 7:3-5 (NIV) says “The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way , the husband  does not have authority  over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps  by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may not devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because you have no self- control.”

Now to the unmarried I encourage you if you are having premarital sex please stop and devote yourselves to God so that you will not fall into sexual sin. Having premarital sex with every boyfriend you have, you are giving them a piece of you physically and emotionally what God has made specifically for the spouse he has for you. If you feel you cannot control the urges go to God in prayer and he will send a husband for you.  1 Corinthians 7:8-9 says: ” Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried. As I do. BUT IF THEY CANNOT CONTROL THEMSELVES, THEY SHOULD MARRY, FOR IT IS BETTER TO MARRY THAN TO BURN WITH PASSION.”  What Paul was saying here is, it is better to stay unmarried so that you can completely devote yourselves to God and what he has called you to do with out the added company of a spouse and family as paul did. However, if you cannot control those sexual urges than yes it is better to marry but marry the right person, the person God has for you.

The Worthless Black Woman

This is such a great blog I encourage all to read it.

Blac-Chyna-13Earlier today I received a text message from a friend requesting that I read an article he posted on Facebook and to give him my “view” on it once I read it. Of course my curiosity was stricken so I indulged. When I saw the title of the article I knew exactly where this was going; it was entitled “Why Black Men are NOT ATTRACTED to Nappy Haired Black Women” .The article was written by a black guy who obviously appreciates the “natural black woman”. In this particular instance they focused on natural hair, which means without chemicals such as a relaxer to straighten the hair. He shared the dialogue between himself and a room full of other black men, some of which were unable to appreciate a black woman’s natural kinky hair. I won’t do a review on this article; if you are interested, click the link above.
