Sisters, we are living in a society, where so many of us are searching, so many of us are exploring for the answers to this thing we call life. We are in a society where many us are in search to finding out our purpose. We are changing our degree plans. We are changing our careers. We are changing our hairstyles. We are changing our styles to latest trends. We have become serial daters. One month we’re with this guy and another month with that one. And some are of us are even changing to an alternative life-style. And you know why?
As women we seek affirmation and praise. We want someone to approve of us. We hunger for protection and assurance. We strive for love and security. God has designed us to grow from babies to little girls. From little girls to young ladies. And now God wants you to blossom into a woman who is whole. Because many of us don’t realize that it is the trick of the devil to keep your purpose veiled because he knows that true purpose is engendered in God, and a woman who finds her true purpose, she will become dangerous to the devil.
We heard and quoted many scriptures. Like weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning…What the devil meant for evil, God meant it for good…And all things work together for good of them who love God and are called according to His purpose. We really want to believe that. We really want to believe our pain is passing. We really want to believe that one day our joy will be perma-nent. But wherever you are today, you’ve been asking God – Why?
Why is it you keep having sleepless nights? Why is it you’re still dealing with this escapable hurt? Why is it you keep missing the mark of being a submissive wife and love your husband? Why is it your child keeps disrespecting you? Why is it your in and out these dysfunctional relationships?
Why is it you’re constantly feeling disappointed? Why is it everyone is coming to you for the answers to their issues and you can’t even figure out your own? Why is it every night we lie in our beds when darkness comes against our mind telling us we’re nothing? If we would have done this that would not have happened. If we would have been a better this, they would not have done that. When things are so tough right now you can’t even share with your girlfriends, because you are the one who “supposed to” have it together.
The truth of the matter, we have been walking around masking and closing the door to our own mind of what we are really feeling. And everything we dream for has been shattered into pieces and we don’t have the will or desire to stoop down and pickup the pieces and put them together again. Because we are emotionally drained. Physically tired and we are in a comatose state; just going through the motions in life aimlessly.
For the next few weeks we will take this journey together and discover the answer to these questions. It is my prayer that each of you be opened to experience a life changing experience that you have been desperately trying to find. Together we will explore some issues that have influenced our emotional behavior both positively and negatively.
These blogs are for healing, restoring, and focusing on our relationship with God. We will explore the life of a woman in Mark Chapter 5 who suffered a great issue for twelve years. For twelve years it seems as if life was hopeless for her. But through a determination and perseverance she was able to receive the help she needed. It is my prayer that you will receive practical insight through the word of God on His healing power. Just like this woman in Mark Chapter 5, God is no respector a person; He will do the same for you, if you allow Him too.
Please note my sisters this blog is meant for those who are ready to read it. It’s a voluntary, personal choice for women who say, “I’m feeling you”, I know someone who needs this; or how can I help someone?” Now if this is forwarded to you by someone, continue reading it, they are sowing a seed into your life. Afterwards, pass it on to someone else and sow a seed into their lives. Paul says in the Kings James Version of 1 Corinthians 3:6, my work was to plant seed in your hearts, and another to water it, but it was God, not we, who made the garden grow in your hearts. Remember "It Had To Happen".
