Wake Up!

Empire picSo, I hear the new season of Empire has started and everyone’s all excited and pumped…even “Christians”. Oh yes, I’m coming for you!

Please, please, please explain to me how this show is in anyway fitting for the eyes of a supposedly God-fearing, Jesus loving, saved person? Am I missing something here? Everything about this show is in total disobedience to the Word of God not to mention it contradicts the Word of God completely!

From what I’ve heard of the latest episode, a lot of “Christians” were disappointed because it was a little over the top. Seriously, what did you expect?! Isn’t that how the enemy uses sin? He dishes out a little to suck you in, to desensitize and then once that’s happened, in comes the flood! You should be happy that you noticed that it was over the top! Could it be your Spirit alerting you that hey, you shouldn’t be filling yourself with this junk! Satan is the god of the air, of this world.  He uses the airwaves, TV, music to do his work.  Think about it! I heard on the radio this morning one guy said that he felt as if he should have had the remote in one hand and a stack of $1 dollar bills in the other! Really???!!! Come on people of God! What are we doing? We are bowing down to everything, compromising at every turn! We have the Creator of the Universe on our side, we don’t have to accept this!! But because we want to gratify our flesh and don’t want to offend, we bend and succumb to the wiles of this world!

Not only is this show totally contrary to the Word of God, look at what it’s promoting. Fornication, lewdness, violence, disrespect for women, do I need to go on? No wonder our young men and women act the way they do, not treasuring their bodies and young men, instead of covering us they are looking to expose all that we have as women.  They may not listen to us but they are watching and if we’re ok with feeding this garbage to ourselves then of course they think it’s ok as well! Then we adults have the audacity to get mad when the young ones act in the manners that they’ve picked up from us! Come on people, that do as I say and not as I do approach does not work! The young girls and Lord help us, women, want to emulate Cookie and yes lets bring in Olivia Pope. Please tell me where and how do these women represent at Titus 2 woman?

God’s Word tells us “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”(Philippians 4:8) Is there anything in Empire that resembles anything close to this?  Then Titus 2:3-5 Similarly, teach the older women to live in a way that honors God. They must not slander others or be heavy drinkers.[a] Instead, they should teach others what is good. These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God. Do either Cookie or Olivia Pope reflect any one of these characters? 

And let’s not leave out the men: Titus 2:2,6 Teach the older men to exercise self-control, to be worthy of respect, and to live wisely. They must have sound faith and be filled with love and patience. In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. And 1 Timothy 5:2 Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.

The Word says that For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News?” (1 Peter 4:17) Being a Christian is more than just believing and saying the prayer, that’s only the beginning.  We have to make the decision to make Jesus Lord over our lives, not just our Savior.  He has called us higher, otherwise who would be able to differentiate between someone in the world and someone who has given their lives to Christ? We are to be in this world, being salt and light, not conforming to it’s ways!

Joy & Happiness

Happiness is conditional, based on whether your circumstances and surroundings are working in your favor or in a way that you believe is good for you.

But joy is a choice! You can have joy in the midst of pain and flat out chaos. You can have joy in circumstances where things aren’t going the way you’d hoped and especially when God says no. There’s joy in knowing that God’s “no” means something. It could mean protection, a lesson, of “I have something much better for you”.

Today, I’m choosing joy, the joy of the Lord which is my strength. I hope you choose the same!

Be blessed & encouraged,

Cloudy Vision


Have you ever had cloudy vision?  You can see but not clearly, you can make out shapes and silhouettes but not a clear picture of who or what it is you’re looking at?  Well, that’s what sex before marriage does.  Let me explain. You have sex with someone based on how they make you feel or what state of mind you’re in.  If it’s a one night stand thing, then you may have sex with the guy for several reasons, you’re horny, he’s fine, you’re lonely, or you feel that you have to do so just to keep him.  Now, say he’s not so much of a creep in the beginning and the sex is good and all seems fine.  Question, what is the basis for this relationship? Is it just sex?  We as women have the tendency, just as guys, to “diversify our accounts”. We have a guy for sex, for emotional support, who makes us laugh, gives us money, makes us feel good, you name it there’s a guy for it!  But what about when you have to find 1 guy?  You can’t marry them all!  So now, you’re stuck with cloudy vision.  You can’t make up your mind, the sex guy is cool but he doesn’t give you what you need emotionally, or the emotional guy is cool but you’ve had sex with him as well and it wasn’t all that hot.  So what do you do?

This used to be me! I wish I’d known that yep, God takes care of that too, and very well.  I always say that I got lucky because I married the guy who fit my important needs and as an added bonus he’s everything I’ve ever wanted physically. God can and will take care of our desires as well! (Psalm 37:4)  My husband’s strengths are my weaknesses and my strengths are his weaknesses.  When you have sex with different guys, play the field and get wrapped up in so much mess, you can’t see straight, your vision is cloudy!  Your heart is jacked up, your emotions are all over the place and that’s not God’s plan for us.  Not to mention all of the soul ties you’ve created!

God created us so He knows what we need sexually and emotionally.  We don’t have to go and do the work by trial and error (mostly error!), He will do it for us gladly.  Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.   The key here is accepting the fact that God knows the plan, not us.  This requires us to trust Him!!

See, He’s already declared that we’re taken care of but we have to have a relationship, not religion with Him and seek Him first! We don’t know who we are or what we want or what our purpose is without Him!  The way I see it, my life was an absolute mess without God!  I tried to do everything on my own and on my own terms and messed up a lot but God loves us so much that He restores us and picks us up out of our messes and turn them into the beautifulness (yep I created a word ;-)) that He intended for us to have anyway! So, if your vision is cloudy, ask God to give you clear vision and an undivided heart and He will show you the way!

Red Flags for Dating

Soul Ties

What is a sosoul ties redul tie?

“A soul tie is the joining or knitting together of the bonds of a relationship. Godly soul ties occur
when like-minded believers are together in the Lord: friends, marriage partners, believers to
pastors, etc. Relationships that lack ‘God-centeredness’ can result in ungodly soul ties between
friends, parents and children, siblings, marriage partners, former romantic or sexual partners,
domineering authorities, etc. An unhealthy attachment with another can bring about a psychic
control that can adversely affect the life, e.g. a mother who refuses to relinquish her hold on her
children (tied to her apron strings), a person who refuses to release to the Lord the memory of an
old romantic flame (withdrawing into nostalgia in times of loneliness), a person who holds a grudge
or a judgment against another, someone who uses spiritual forces to control others (witchcraft),

Prayer for breaking ungodly soul ties:

“In the name of Jesus Christ I now renounce, break and loose myself from all demonic subjection and any
ungodly soul ties and unhealthy bondings with the following people: (break soul ties with each person that
comes to mind)”

“Lord, I ask you to do whatever it takes to break me of my tendencies to: obsessive preoccupations,
domination, control, passivity, apathy, unforgiveness, anger, blame, accusations, fear, intimidation and
disobedience in relationships.”

“Finally, in the name of Jesus, I declare every demonic hold in my life that has come as a result of
unhealthy soul ties null and void. Satan, I renounce you and your demons and command you to depart
from my spirit, soul and body!”
