The wise woman builds her house,
but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
2 Whoever fears the Lord walks uprightly,
but those who despise him are devious in their ways.
Build your house with a firm foundation
I thought I would write my blog today on being a woman of faith. I know I have words that can build my house up or words that tear it down. I have a mirror that reflects my outside appearance and my heart that searches for kindness. I can be in the best of moods and all of a sudden, a change can happen because of words of others. Words are so important and we must say positive words to ourselves. Life is a constant mind set to knowing God is able to handle my now. A woman or man of faith stands stronger than they imagine at times. Each should build their house upon the solid rock JESUS. His character can become our character of kindness, love and forgiveness to others.
Matthew 7:24-27 English Standard Version (ESV)
Build Your House on the Rock
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
A foundation build in Jesus
Daily choose to see yourself forgiven and blessed in so many ways. One day can bring so much change and we know that God never changes. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. I don't always understand the why of things, but I have learn to trust the Lord with all my heart. When we know the word of God and building our lives solid in him, we can rest on faith in unknown things. There have been times in my life when I felt my mountain before me was too big. As each day passed, I found myself a little stronger than I thought. I didn't just become a woman of faith overnight, I learned to press through things and just know that God is able.
GOD IS ABLE ~
Not only are there women of faith but we have men of faith too. Men who read the word of God and live by it. Men who cherish woman and know their place according to God's word. Yet, not every man is a man of faith. It takes dedication to God and pressing forward too. Sometimes things happen to men and they loose their worth. They forget where God has brought them and get discouraged just like women. It becomes a human thing, male and female who need to start pressing on through everything we are faced with. It's a new day, lets encourage ourselves and go about doing good today. Life is about unknowing things too and we need the faith to continue at times.
What about you? Facing something hard and need a friend to agree in prayer with you. I pray daily for you and I know that God is able to handle your today. Talking to God is like talking to a friend. You might not hear back right away, but God is working behind the scenes of your life. I remember talking about faith one day to my granddaughter Brookley. She told me that she was a girl of faith. We were in car and I said I had a headache. Brookley said she would pray and Willow joined in. I believe my granddaughters watch my example and I want to be a great example to them in all things. Today, I will join in prayer with you for what you need and believe God will answer quickly. Purpose this a good day.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
