Most blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. Jeremiah 17:7 Amplified

God wants us to depend totally upon Him, not our boyfriends, husbands, mother, sister, brother or anyone else. And when we Honor God by trusting in Him, He will come through no matter what it looks like.

Here is a very inspiring testimony about a Woman whose trust in God was put to the test as she faced hardship.

It was a week before pay day and I had no food in the house and no money to buy any because my ex-husband had not paid his child support that week.  I didn’t know how I was going to feed my children that week. I didn’t want to borrow it and remember sitting at my kitchen table crying out to God, “You said you would always take care of me and my family. I have no money, I don’t get paid for another week what am I gonna do?” The next day at work I got a phone call from a bank that I no longer banked with. I had missed the call and called back on my break and when I called the lady told me that I had a check for $750 that had tried to post to my account but couldn’t because it was closed. She said when she seen it she thought to herself that somebody probably needs this money and instead of sending it back like she should have,  she opened another account and posted it there and all I had to do was come sign some paperwork and pick it up.  All I could do was shout and cry all my coworkers were looking at me like what is going on? All I could say was God is good! I want to say to you that even in your darkest hour he’s there and he hears your cry. Just like he promised me when I was pregnant at 18 with my first child that He would always take care of me and my family, that promise stands true for you too.  I can say today 12 years and four children later that He still has never broken his promise.

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. John 15:17 Amplified

Inner Beauty, What Is It?

I believe that as women, when we learn to focus on our inner beauty we are able to enjoy life as it should be. During the next post, I really want to look at the meaning of inner beauty and what can WE as women can do to refocus on what matters most!

SAO PAULO (AP) — Newly crowned Miss Universe Leila Lopes wants to help her native Angola further escape a history of war and impoverishment and said she plans to focus on combating HIV around the globe.
Speaking in a timid voice early Tuesday shortly after taking the crown in South America's largest city, the 25-year-old Lopes said that "as Miss Angola I've already done a lot to help my people."
"I've worked with various social causes. I work with poor kids, I work in the fight against HIV. I work to protect the elderly and I have to do everything that my country needs," she said. "I think now as Miss Universe I will be able to do much more."
Responding to questions, Lopes said that she has never had cosmetic surgery of any kind and that her three tips for beauty were to get a lot of sleep, use sunblock even when it's not sunny and to drink lots of water. She said her smile was her best weapon in the competition.
Asked about racism in light of the fact that she's one of the few blacks ever crowned Miss Universe, Lopes said that "any racist needs to seek help."
"It's not normal in the 21st century to think in that way."
Lopes is Angola's first winner. She beat out 88 other competitors to win the title during the 60th anniversary of the world's biggest beauty pageant. She replaces last year's winner, Ximena Navarrete of Mexico.
She deftly handled the interview question that is asked of the remaining top five contestants. She was questioned about what physical trait she would change if she could.
"Thank God I'm very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn't change a thing," Lopes said. "I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life."

"Are You Broken?"

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1Peter 5:10

After going through many trials and tribulations, we are often approached with negativity that causes us to feel hopeless! However, I want to encourage you to allow God to rebuild you! I've been there and when it seemed as if all hope was lost, God reached down and began to put the pieces back together! Yes, it is that simple! God is not complicated. Just ask, believe, receive and He'll do the rest! If you've turned your back on Him, He's waiting for your return so that He can restore you to BRAND NEW! BE BLESSED WOMAN!

"Lose The Unnecessary Weight"

Although I have lost 8lbs over the past 8 weeks, I’ve also lost other much needed weight. Another name for this type of weight is, ‘baggage’. Baggage can be in the form of bad advice that you’ve held onto, bad relationships, and (or) bad habits. The pounds that I’m shedding come in all three forms mentioned and I’m so excited!
