Jeremiah 32:39 (NLT)
And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants.

 
In a world where self-gratification is sought out more than anything. In a world where riches are desired more than anything. In a world where we have left our first love. In a world of busyness and everything fast paced and instant. We have forgotten to teach our girls how to worship God. Instead they worship music artists and fashion designers and those who they deem great in their little eyes. We take them to church but that is about all that we do. We have forgotten to instruct them on finding their purpose.

 

We have to refocus our girls back to the true and living God. In their worshiping God they will know their purpose. In their worshiping God they will know their importance. In their worshiping God they will get that feeling of fulfillment that can come from no other place. In their worshiping God they will get clarity on the issues of life. In their worshiping God it will bring great delight to Him. It’s not too late for them to turn around. All hope is not gone. We must not give up on them. They are the ones that will lead the generation of girls behind them. They must know the truth so that they can pass it on. They shall know their purpose!
Father, we declare that every girl shall know their God given purpose. They shall understand the importance of carrying out their purpose. They shall find delight in completing their purpose for you. Father, give them clarity on what you have created them to do. Help us to lead and guide them in the right way. Help us to be godly examples for them. Help us to teach them how to worship in spirit and in truth. Forgive us where we have fallen in this area and help us to make a turn around for the benefit of our girls. We believe and know that there is still time to make a change. All hope is not lost as long as they still have breath in their bodies. Show us all the way Lord. We need your Holy Spirit to help us in all that we do. It is our hearts desire to get back on track for your glory. They shall have one heart and one purpose: to worship you forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. In Jesus name, amen!
I am a girl of purpose
 
I shall know God’s plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11, Galatians 6:4)
 
I  shall not waste my resources (Colossians 3:23)
 
I am destined for success (John 14:12, Philippians 1:6)
 
I am a girl of purpose

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

 

Identity may be defined as the distinctive characteristic belonging to any given individual, or shared by all members of a particular social category or group.
Collins English dictionary defines identity as the state of having unique identifying characteristics held by no other person or thing; the individual characteristics by which a person or thing is recognized.
A person’s identity is his or her own sense of self; of who they are. For example, your identity may be that you are a female, who is honest, warm, caring, intelligent, and sometimes moody. This then might be your identity, and you carry it with you wherever you go. The way you perceive yourself, your actions, your thoughts, and your interactions with others are all influenced by this identity. For example, if you do something very well (like get an “A” on an exam), you might associated it with your identity – “of course I got an ‘A’, I am an intelligent person who does well on things I set my mind to.” Likewise, when we do something wrong, bad, or simply goes against our identity, we may protect ourselves by attributing this behavior to something or someone else (I failed the test because the teacher gave all trick questions, not because I am not intelligent).

Our girls our struggling to find their identity. Since they are unsure of what their identity is suppose to be they are being influenced by who they hang around the most, what they hear the most, what they feel the most and what they see the most. The fact of the matter is our children spend the majority of their time away from us, away from the church and away from those who really do love them so if our influences are not pressing into their spirits mightily while they are in our presence then they will be influenced by outside sources. Did you really understand what you just read? Let me repeat it because I don’t want you to miss the point.
 The fact of the matter is our children spend the majority of their time away from us, away from the church and away from those who really do love them so if our influences are not pressing into their spirits mightily while they are in our presence then they will be influenced by outside sources.Those outside sources can cause our children to be in bondage, confused and lost to say the least. There is no way a video vixen should be an aspiration of our girls. There is no way being somebody’s baby mama should be an aspiration for our girls. There is no way being somebody’s mistress should be an aspiration of our girls. The devil is a lie!
 Every girl is different and they cannot all handle the same thing. One girl can watch basketball wives and not be moved by it where another can watch it and think this is life. We have to know the strength and weakness of our girls and train them up accordingly. We have come to far as women to digress backward in our children. We all have made mistakes but can now chose to move forward and do better. We only have them for a little while before they will be on their own, out of sight and out of reach. So while we can still put holy hands on them let’s make sure we are making a difference in their lives. They shall know their identity by any means necessary!
Father our girls shall know their identity from the word of God and not through the media, men, friends or any other sources used by Satan.. Our girls shall know and appreciate their own self value.  Our girls shall have self respect that comes from within. Our girls are covered by the blood of Jesus day in and day out. Our girls shall have great self esteem that comes from God. Our girls shall succeed and not fail. Our girls shall live a life pleasing to God. Our girls shall know their identity in Christ.  They shall know they are God’s masterpiece created new in Christ to do good things. In Jesus name, amen!

 

 

 


true love waits

 

 

 

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

True love will not ask you to compromise your beliefs for a little pleasure on the side. True love will respect you at all times. True love will not want to touch you in appropriate ways. True love will honor you all the days of your life. True love will not lie or deceive you. True love will touch your soul. True love will lift you up and not pull you down. True love will encourage you to keep going on when you have given your all and are ready to give up. True love will protect you from all hurt, harm and danger. True love will never let you down. True love will always tell what is right even when it hurts. 

Does the one you love offer you true love or is it a cheap imitation? You deserve so much more! Don’t settle for cheap love. Don’t settle for the world’s view of love. You have to be the example of love to your child/children. Think about it and ask your self, “would I want my child to experience the love I am living with today?” If your answer is no, then only you can change it. Love is not shown on one day out of year but it shows up on every day. It shows up just because it’s Monday with no strings attached.

You receive what you accept. If you don’t like what is given, then reject it and demand better or move on. Life is too short not to be loved!
