F.L.Y.

Did you know that Jesus says (commanded) to LOVE YOURSELF?

For some that is easy, but for others to love themselves is hard. Circumstances in life can make us bitter. We can sometimes feel bitter at others, feel like we don’t fit in, or compare ourselves to others. No matter the circumstance, we are to still love ourselves. In Mathew 22, we are to love our neighbor as yourself. Did you get that? AS YOURSELF.

If you do not love yourself, then it’s not easy to love your neighbor.

A simple step to know if you love yourself is to look in the mirror square in the eye and say, “I love you, (say your name), or write yourself a love letter. State on paper what you love about yourself.

There is ONLY one you and that person is valuable! You have purpose. You’ve been made for a time such as this.

In your quite time with the Father, ask Him what you purpose is.

Begin to F.L.Y. today!

Matthew 22:37–39

Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor As Yourself.’ (NKJV)

Grow Beautiful Thoughts

Our thoughts are so important! They can determine how your day can go. The bible says to take EVERY thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). That means that I have a chance to do something about negative thoughts. You may ask, how do I take a thought captive? Well, this will take a few seconds of action. You take a thought captive with another thought using God’s word. God’s word is alive and will defeat any situation. When you read God’s word, you are replacing those bad thoughts with truth. Soon, your thoughts are remembering what the word said about the situation.

EXAMPLE: Let’s say you get angry and that puts you in a bad mood. You can go to the bible and search scripture about anger. James 1:19-20. “So then, my beloved, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

Other scriptures: Psalms 34;14, Colossians 3:15, Ecclesiastes 10:14

Take every thought captive

There is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1;9.

The Virtuous Woman

Did you know one of the hebrew meanings of a ‘virtuous woman’ is cha-yil. Cha-yil has a military overtone. It means might, bravery, success. She is more than a homemaker, she is a warrior! The Proverbs 31 woman is shown actively doing productive things. She works with her hands, engages in trade “like the merchant’s ships,” and oversees workers in her household (Prov. 31:13-16, 19, 22, 24). She’s not full of anxiety because she has confidence in her ability to care for her business and family (Prov. 31:18, 21, 27). She does her husband good and not evil all the days of life. Proverbs 31:12 Read Proverbs 31 again to see the strong, brave, and successful woman, not the frail, stay-at-home woman.

You as a woman are far better than rubies!

Happy National Brownie Day!

The legend of the brownie originated in 1893.
