What Kind of Woman Are You?

You might be thinking, "Why are you asking this question! Of course I'm a good woman!"

I thought the same thing too. "I'm a good woman." I am loyal, honest, caring, loving, motivational, ambitious, intelligent, independent, and so on. It wasn't until I really began to dig into the word of God that I really had to sit back and say, "What kind of woman are you?"

All those "things" I named are nice, and in the eyes of a worldly man, I'd probably be considered a "good catch." NOT what I am looking to attract.

"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." Proverbs 31:30

See, there are PLENTY women in this world. I'm sure we could come up with different types of women to categorize. I mean everything from "insecure," "know-it-all," "desperate," "home wrecker," etc. You get the point-this list could go on for days, weeks, months …

A Good Man vs. A Godly Man

Many of us are CONFUSED. We simply don't know any better. And we don't know better because we don't truly know Christ. We confuse a GOOD man & a GODLY man. Let's be clear-there is NO exception to this rule, this standard. Holiness is the only standard we ought to uphold...with & in everything.

A GOOD MAN IS A GODLY MAN. What does this mean? In order for a man to be a "good man" he has to exhibit some Christ-like characteristics. The world will tell you a good man doesn't have to be a godly man.
A "good man" (in the carnal mind) is someone who opens the door for you, supports you financially, remains faithful, treats you well & while that may be true-a good man FEARS THE LORD. We have so many women who are (I have to be honest) desperate to be with someone that they'll accept anything less than what they truly deserve. You were brought with a price...or didn't you know? A man died for you.

Now back to this so called "good…

A Christian Has To Forgive?

||"No God. Just let me continue seeking your face and change me. I want to be on fire for you! I want you to fix my heart. Heal me emotionally. But I want to stay mad at the person. I can move on but I ain't forgiving them."||

-Familiar?
This was one of the hardest things for me. TO FORGIVE. Forgive the man who repeatedly abused me emotionally? Mentally? Lied to me? Forgive the friend who hurt me? Who wasn't there for me when I needed her? Forgive my family member? But do know what he/she did to me? ARE YOU CRAZY? We may be-but God certainly isn't. WE MUST FORGIVE.

In all actuality, the title of this blog post shouldn't even be a question.

"14If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14-15.

I know he hurt you. Beyond anything you could invent in your worst nightmare. I am here to tell you, you have to forgive. It may seem …
