nonelikejesus: I’ve learned in my 23 years of life that you will have people in your life that will take, take, and take some more. Those same people are nowhere to be found when it’s time to give a little. When it’s you that’s in need of a shoulder to cry on, and ear to just listen, a friend, they’re not there. I’ve learned that that’s just life. More of your relationships than I’d like to...

For those who are stready trying to hook me up.
People are always surprised that I’ve stuck it out with my sabbatical from dating for a year and some. They always ask why or how or when will you date again? As if I’m suppose to be in a relationship. I find it even more funny that a year ago when I was dating someone, everyone was shocked and asked why? what bout?And the list goes on… My girls think I’m single cus...

jasminecrystal: Biblical Success keerstindawn: What is success to you? Is it going to college? Making lots of money? Achieving certain goals? I know that for many people, including myself until recently, success is measured based on accomplishments. And we all want to be successful, don’t we? Not to mention the fact that the “American Dream” is so integrated into every thing we see and do....
My girls, girls, girls, I do adore.
“You’re too busy. You work too much. You spend too much time with your family. You’re always out of town. You’re always doing this & doing that…” -From all the guys I’ve dated,why thank you. In the midst of being busy, I cherish the times I do get to sit down, chill and just have a good ol time with my girls. I don’t get to see my girls too...
Letter From A Jealous Brother by KB →
For the ladies but also for the men. A must-read. A letter that should remind us of our worth. Ladies, I believe this could help you maintain an undivided heart for Christ whether you consider being married someday or not. A letter that is personally written for us to know how to be a godly bride. A letter for the men to know how worth it to pursue a godly woman is.
breanna-lynn: “I don’t want you to stop living in sin because you’re afraid of going to hell. I want you to stop living in sin for one reason: Jesus is better.” — Damon Thompson
You know what's freeing?
breanna-lynn: The moment you realize it doesn’t matter to you anymore what people say or think about you. Just because they say or think it doesn’t make it true. Christ defines you and your identity. If you know who you truly are, you don’t need to be insecure or defensive about who others say you are. Christ secures and frees us so we don’t have to be bound by anything or anyone outside of...

1) Guard your tongue. Always say less than you think and others will respect you. 2) Make promises sparingly, keep them faithfully, and people will trust you. 3) Never let an opportunity pass to say a kind word, and some day you will look back with joy and not regret. 4) Be genuinely interested in others; show it by listening attentively and expressing your appreciation. 5) Be cheerful. Don’t...

breanna-lynn: These are just a few things I wish young men would know before they consider pursuing a young woman. Pursue a woman you would seriously marry, not that you are simply attracted to. Be friendly and become familiar (some people call this “being friends first” but you have to be careful because that is broadly defined and can create a mess). All relationships begin with friendly,...

faithology: As a woman, I will be the first to admit that I want to be pursued. The female mind has an inherent soft-spot for thoughts and fantasies of being wooed and romanced to rest upon. In the age where “women can do things now,” we try and pretend like we “don’t need no man.” Even then, we mean that we don’t need romance, but the double negative suggests otherwise. The want to be wanted...

A Lesson Learned From Job 33
writtenonhispalms: Commentary from my Life Application Study Bible (KJV): Being informed brings a sense of security. It’s natural to want to know what’s happening in our lives. Job wanted to know what was going on, why he was suffering. In previous chapters, we sense his frustration. Elihu claimed to have the answer for Job’s biggest questions, “Why doesn’t God tell me what is happening?” Elihu...

So so so so blessed for the one’s I surround myself with now a days. It ain’t bout’ quantity BUT quality. I was surrounded by artificial for awhile & been taken for granted for way too long which caused me to ache for change. The past month I’ve cut communication with those who took me for granted, who didn’t encourage me to grow and worse who didn’t point...

skeuos: Keep yourself humble. Never forget who you were outside of Christ. Never forget where you started from. Never forget that you were once in the mud, wallowing around. You were broken, a sinner once in love with darkness. Until He drew you out. Irresistible grace. Thankfulness. Pride is a sneaky thing. It is like a creeping hand that has a tight grip upon nearly every heart, I’m sure....
lastdaywarrior: When trust is broken, rebuilding trust isn’t how we make it better. Rebuilding shouldn’t be the answer. To repair trust through deed is creating the opportunity to repeat the past. It goes deeper than action or deed. To treat broken trust with action and deed is like treating a disease with medicine. It isn’t a cure and a cure should be our goal. We have to go to the root of the...

As much truth that statement holds, I still struggle in putting it to work. Last night, I cried. I haven’t done that in awhile so I thanked God for putting me in my place and it was a reminder that I am human. With the situation I’m in, with the trials that I’ve overcome and the struggles that are yet waiting for me has me in a place where I must be obedient and I must take that...
