I am the queen of going down rabbit holes.
Have you ever started typing a phrase into Google or Pinterest and had a phrase pop up and you just had to know what that phrase was about?
That’s what happened to me on Pinterest.
I thought “Wait, what? That’s not a thing. Surely, no Christians practice witchcraft.”
Turns out I was wrong.
Christian witchcraft is a thing.
Except it’s not really a thing and yet some people sincerely believe that it is.
I truly wanted to cry while I was writing this post.
I had no idea that Christian witches existed although I should have known because the devil never rests and is always looking to deceive as many people as possible.
I’m so heartbroken that women are falling into this trap thinking that they are walking with God when they are not. Maybe I should word this post in a nicer way but I can’t sugarcoat this.
As I strive to become more like a Proverbs 31 woman, it’s imperative to “speak with wisdom and faithful instruction”.
I will not mince words.Continue reading
Even though she isn’t exactly real, the Proverbs 31 woman is legendary.
Christian women all over the world read this chapter in Proverbs and try and pattern their lives off of this amazing and virtuous woman.
And it’s no wonder.
She basically did it all and didn’t seem to break a sweat. She was a godly wife to her husband. Clearly a loving mother to her children. She kept the home in order and trusted God in everything she did.
Now, I’m not going to try and persuade you that you need to follow in her footsteps because it kinda makes me tired just thinking about everything she did.
But I did think it would be awesome to look at the characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman a little differently and then reflect on those traits with some journaling prompts.
You see, the Proverbs 31 Woman lived a healthy life…and I don’t just mean physically.
I mean she was financially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy, as well.
In today’s post, I will be talking about how she is healthy in these 5 areas and then give you some journaling prompts related to them.
I hope that these journaling prompts will inspire you to think about these different areas of your life in a meaningful way and give you a new perspective.
An estimated 40 million Americans are suffering from anxiety.
And while there should be no Christians counted in that number I know for sure that there are (I am one of them).
Why shouldn’t any Christians that struggle with anxiety?
Because Jesus told us about a million different times not to be anxious ( give or take a few times).
Yet so often we still can’t overcome the constant worry and doubt that plagues so many of us.
So I thought it would be good to have a devotional and remind ourselves of 9 major things the Bible says about overcoming anxiety.
Let’s Define Some Words First…
You’ve finally done the impossible.
Your to-do list in hand, (either digitally or on paper) you have a firm grasp of what tasks need to be done and by George, you’re determined to do them.
And guess what?
By some miracle, you checked off every single item on your list.
Brimming with pride as you make that last checkmark with a flourish, you feel more accomplished than you have in a while.
That’s because normally, your to-do list turns into a to-do later (or never) list. So you feeling good and you should.
I know from experience that a lot of the time the stuff on my to-do list, worthy though they may seem at the time, they often aren’t the most important things that need to get done.Continue reading
It’s sad but true.
I’ve ignored every single item on this list at some point or another and I’m guessing most of us have.
But what I’m talking about is not just doing one or two of the foolish things on this list.
I’m talking about habits which imply that someone is doing these things over and over again and not making any changes.
Unfortunately, I’ve been the very person that I’m talking about. The person who has made a habit out of doing some of the things I’ve put on this list.
How do you think I know so much about them ;).
What I know is that when you make lots of unwise decisions, several things happen:Continue reading
Okay so if you haven’t read my first blog post in this series: 5 Otherworldly Habits All Wise Women Possess then you will want to go back and read that first.
Of course, you don’t have to go back and read it but if you are wise then you would. There are 2,000+ words of good stuff there.
It breaks down the difference between being smart and wise, explains why I call the otherworldly habits, and why there are two posts about being a wise woman.
Originally this post was just one long 3,000-word post but I decided to break it up to make it easier to take it. This post is a continuation of the previous post, so be sure to check the first one out.
Now let’s move onto the next 5 habits, shall we?Continue reading
This is part 2 of my How To Overcome Anxiety-Based Procrastination blog post series.
I split it up only because there’s so much information here that it might overwhelm you if you tried to read it all in one sitting.
If you haven’t read part 1 of this anxiety-based procrastination series, please click here and do so because part 2 probably won’t make much sense without you reading the beginning.
Know what I mean, Verne?
Let’s pick things back up with Step 3.Continue reading
You’re ready for a life change…
You know the Lord is calling you to do something different with your life. Not just like buy a new bible or pray a little bit longer or try that new Sunday school class.
No, He wants you to do something big. Radical. Scary (yikes). And he’s been wanting you to do it for a while now…like maybe even years.
But you’re too scared to jump out there in faith and start whatever it is that he’s been wanting you to do.
So you procrastinate because your anxiety is off the charts (also known as anxiety-based procrastination…it has other names too that I’ll discuss later).
You let everything including the kitchen sink (hey the dishes have to get done, amirite?) get in the way of following God’s plan for your life (ask me how I know).
Every time the Holy Spirit starts poking prodding you to start the project ( in fact that’s what we’ll call it throughout the duration of this post, the project) you’re all ” is this really what I’m supposed to do? If only I could get a sign”
And because no clouds roll back like a scroll, no dove descends upon your shoulder, and no booming voice from heaven proclaims “yes my child this is exactly what you must do. Go forth and use thine talents in the name of the Father Son and the Holy Spirit” you act all brand new like you aren’t sure your really being “lead” or not.
Well, let’s establish something.
If the project is challenging, outside of your comfort zone, scares you a little (or to death) and it will glorify God and serve people, it’s prolly God’s will.
Trust me, I feel your pain.
