A woman with a real purpose
Is one that knows who God is.
A woman with a real purpose
Knows what God has created her to be.
If he created you to be a writer, then write.
If he created you to be a teacher, then teach.
If he created you to sing, then sing your song.
If he created you to preach, then preach the Gospel.
If he created you to be a mother, then care for your child.
If he created you to be a business woman,
then work your business and be the best you can be.
If he created you to encourage, speak a kind love.
If he created you to be a dancer, then dance.
If he created you to be an actor, then act.
If he created you to be a wife, then love your husband.
If he created you to be a care giver, then care for them.
If he created you to lead, what are you waiting for? Lead!
A woman with a purpose
Is knowing God has a plan —
And He will make provisions for your life.
A woman with a purpose must follow God’s instructions and directions.
A Woman with a real purpose knows who she is in Christ.
Realizing your purpose
Enjoying good plans for your life
Allowing God to guide you
Let go and let God!

I yearn for my kids to be intimate with God .But do I disciple them from home? I wandered from one church to the next because I found them lacking, but yet I lacked in the very things I condemned. I complain about the state I find my society in, but do nothing to effect the changes I envision.
See, we as people like to complain about life, but do nothing to change the outcome. Our intentions and plans for action have good intent, but we lack the motivation to see them through. If our actions were fruit, they would be overripe; molding away in our soul from lack of sustenance.
We make time for mundane things, but not ones that effects our forever…crazy Social activities, church functions, TV, play dates and more. These matter, but how much more is reading the Bible as a family, going into the world to be a witness, serving others, getting on your knees to pray? Truth is, we make time for the “things” in our life that are easy. We are lazy in our faith.
How much is eternity worth to you?
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7.
We let life drag us down.
We let circumstances dictate our attitude.
We make excuses when we have no motivation to GO
THE ENEMY IS STEALING OUR FAITH; OUR JOY
In order to affect the change we desire, we must first change ourselves.
Renew the mind and you renew the spirit
Renew the spirit and you renew the body
Renew the body and you change your family
Renew your family and you change your community
Renew your community and you change the world
Every seed grows if you tend it properly
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
BE THE CHANGE YOU DESIRE TO SEE
God has been good to me; there is so much I am in God’s debt to tell.
At a point in my life when I was lost, He snatched my soul from hell.
My testimonies are incalculable I was broken down and felt all alone.
Hang out with me as I bear witness now; and pardon me if I rattle on.
My existence, as yours has lots of layers; it might take me some time.
Jesus is my redeemer and sanctuary; in Him, victory is always mine.
Mysterious clouds enclosed me; God watched as He sat on His throne.
He forgave me and keeps me well protected; pardon me if I rattle on.
Some days my life is a hot bath; other days, a freezing harsh shower.
Despite the hour or the mess; God soothes me with His spirit’s power.
It is hard to think on past days; I have done a great deal that is wrong.
Though when I think of God’s compassion; I can’t help but to rattle on.
The Holy Spirit is here at present, as I pen these expressions of praise.
Many thanks I must present my father; He loves me despite my ways.
God has kept me all these years; He will keep until He calls me home.
New mercies offer me a chance to get it right; pardon me if I rattle on.
If not for that cross Jesus bore; I could not atone for my manifold sins.
Thank God for Jesus and salvation; I am glad I invited Him to come in.
My thankfulness is continuous; I promise this poem won’t be that long.
I give you the words God lends to my spirit; so, pardon me if I rattle on.
