Cultivating Contentment

She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat. 
{Proverbs 31:27} AMP


Learning to cultivate contentment in the midst of storms, trials, opposition, setbacks and Learning to be content with where I'm at. Trusting GOD with all my heart because HE is faithful. 
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God". {Romans 8:28}
♦ I refuse to focus on my circumstances
♦ I refuse to magnify Issues that cause stress in my life
♦ I refuse to indulge in self-pity
♦ I refuse to be discontent 
♦ I refuse to believe lies (circulating in my head)

 for the LORD says; "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 
{2 Corinthians 2:9}

♦ I will focus on all the GOOD, what GOD is doing in my life and the life of others.
 ♦ I will rest my anxious thoughts and heart and leave it all in GOD'S hands.
♦ I will Lift up my voice (keep in prayer). I will keep my eyes, my thoughts, focused on CHRIST and HIS    love for me.
♦ I will Rejoice and Praise the LORD for who HE is. HE judges fairly and my case is in HIS hands. I will be persistent with my prayers and pleads.
♦ I will believe every word in the BIBLE. There, I will gather my information and rest in my DADDY'S Arms, my Father GOD.

LORD FATHER GOD,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Help me to rest in YOUR Presence, in YOUR Word and know with all my heart YOU are here with me guiding the way. For YOU Promised LORD to never leave me nor forsake me. May I be a content woman in YOU. Who is content in YOUR LOVE and finds shelter and comfort in the Shadow of YOUR wings. May I, *not* give into self-pity O LORD but STAND Firm, Secure and STRONG in YOU. YOU are my Strength, my Hope of Glory. My full JOY and Contentment is found in YOU.

Tea Time with GOD: Women Who Followed Jesus


Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him, along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons; Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples. 
{Luke 8:1-3} 

The Women who followed Jesus, were healed, saved, and restored! What wise women they are to follow, KING JESUS. They trusted His guidance and followed in His footsteps. These remarkable women, worked hard and contributed their resources for the Glory of God. They were "Kingdom Business Minded". May we be women who contribute, who lend helping hands, who encourage and inspire. May we be women who joyfully serve in love. May we cultivate a servants heart. May we work with all our might as working for the LORD. 

Dear Precious Heavenly Father,
we thank you for all that YOU are. Glorious! And so worthy of all our praise. Please Heavenly Father give us a servants heart so that we may serve others in Love. Helping one another, being honest and fair in all of our work and doings. May we contribute to advancing the kingdom of God and using the gifts/talent, YOU have given us for YOUR GLORY. May we be Wise Women who follow in your footsteps.

My Hope is Achored in HIM

"So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary."

Song of Solomon: Poems of Love


 
His words of Love... 

“ How beautiful is your love... my bride! How much better is your love than wine, And the fragrance of your oils Than all kinds of spices! 
{Song of Solomon 4:10}

“Your lips, my bride, drip honey; Honey and milk are under your tongue, And the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
{Song of Solomon 4:11}

His Love for his Bride is passionate and extravagant. Her lips drip honey, honey and milk are under her tongue. These words I ponder and I can't help but to think, do my words drip honey and milk? Are my words a sweet fragrance to my Heavenly Father and to my Dear Husbands ears? Would he exclaim "my LOVE is better than wine!"

O Glorious Heavenly Father, how I desire to do YOUR will. Please, may my lips, my words, drip honey and milk. May my words be a sweet fragrance to YOU! May my Words Encourage, Inspire, Uplift, Bring Healing, Bring Peace. May my words Glorify and Honor YOU. Teach me to use each word wisely, Carefully Chosen. May we as women be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. Help us to respect our husbands unconditionally and teach the unmarried to respect the men in their lives, prepare them for their future husband to be. Help us to Love Lavishly for YOU Love us Massively. Turn our husband's hearts towards YOU and then towards us. May they LOVE us as Christ loves the church. May my Love be Beautiful. May my husband shout for Joy, how beautiful my Love is! Please LORD, Restore Marriages O LORD, Please Bring healing to our marriages and our lands. For everything belongs to YOU O LORD. I thank Thee O LORD with all of my heart. Gracious YOU are... Indescribable... WORTHY is The LAMB.

Seeds of Faith

And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.
{Luke 8:15}
 
As I meditate on this verse, and let these words penetrate my heart. The LORD'S Words
Become alive and active, guiding every step. The seeds represent: GOD'S WORD. The soil represents: us, our hearts, minds and actions.

Let us take heed to the Word of God. With our Faith, solely Rooted and Grounded in Him. We can believe everything HE says, HE is Faithful. For we walk by Faith and not by sight.   

Words to Ponder:
Honest
Good-hearted
Hear God's Word
Cling to it
Patiently produce a huge harvest

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your Grace, Mercy and understanding. Please grant us seeds of faith. May we plant seeds of faith, kindness, and honesty. Please cleanse our hearts, purify us oh LORD. Give us hearts that love you more and more everyday. I pray for endurance and patiences in all of our lives. Please Open our ears so we may hear your Words and cling to YOU and YOUR Powerful Words.  
In Jesus Holy Mighty Name.

Tea Time with GOD: Acts of Kindness

... My cup overflows {Psalm 23:5}

"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted." {Ephesians 4:32}
A kind word, a kind attitude, a kind deed, they all speak volumes. Kindness brings joy to the heart, a smile to ones face. Showing kindness is simply, being kind in speech, gentle in tone, graceful, a bright smile. An act of kindness: Serving others in love, treating your family and serving them with Royalty. After-all, our Heavenly Father is the KING of Kings. Preparing a warm candlelight dinner for the ones you love, shows an act of Love and Kindness. It truly, is the little things in life that make Grand Impressions.  When we show kindness, we truly are showing our Father' Love and HIS Gracious Kindness. For HIS Loving Kindness, Fails us not.


Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
{Proverbs 16:24}


The fruit of the spirit is... kindness... {Galatians 5:22-23}

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control... {Galatians 5:22-23}

 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.
{Matthew 5:47}

Love is patient and kind...
{1 Corinthians 13:4}

May the loving kindness of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ bless you and give you peace. Philippians 1:2 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
