Sex toys because you are single….is NOT ok with God

single

Or depending on THINGS….

I was thinking about this topic all weekend. Sex toys.  When did they become the norm.  When did they become a go to thing to keep you kinda happy?  Because in reality…you cannot be truly happy with anything make pretend.

Many single women are using toys with the excuse that they have no one to have sex with.   But we are forgetting that sex was created by God for pro-creation and an intimate, pleasurable, covenant act with husband and wife.  Yet, we have lowered it to you and a plastic toy.  God is not pleased.  How about not having sex?  How about not using your body for things that don’t fit in with God’s plan for you.

I have to say that I’ve come to realize that most things Gods has created for us, we have used our own common knowledge and perverted it.

In the bible, Sex, is always mentioned in the context of a loving relationship between husband and wife. When and where did we get off track with pornography, toys, group sex, sex before marriage, think about it…we are having sex with people we clearly don’t love and sometimes barely know well.  (You know their nickname but not their real name, you know their friends but not their parents or siblings, and you know where they hang out but not where they live.)  I’m talking about this because I want you to look at some of the situations in the world with a different view.  A God-view.

Let me add a PSA that because I am a Christian, my basis is the bible. If you disagree, then we probably don’t have the same beliefs.  Which is fine, but not worth any argument.  Because if you believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit then you are in agreement with what scripture says.

Sexual immorality…let’s define this word.

According to GotQuestions.org,

Sexual immorality is surrendering sexual purity or any type of sexual expression outside the boundaries of a biblically defined marriage.  Impurity. Defilement.

Immorality is immoral quality, character, conduct, wickedness, violating moral principles

Fornication is any sex outside of marriage. If you are not married to the person, it is fornication and it is considered a sin.

I listed a few scriptures that speak about Sexual immorality. These are just a few scriptures I choose to reference, but there are many more.  This is to give you some background understanding of why God desires for us to live pure and holy lives.  Away from anything that will defile it.  This is not to make you feel guilty, but to renew your minds.  Help you to look at your body as belonging to Christ and your husband, not temporary people and temporary things.

1 Corinthians 5:1 calls out sexual immorality in the Corinthian Church because someone is sleeping with their father’s wife. (Their Step-mother)

1 Corinthians 6:18 says our body is for the Lord, to be used as an instrument of righteousness to holiness. And should not me made an instrument of sin.  We are to be one in our body with Christ.

Jude 1:17 Sodom & Gomorrah was a town filled with every kind of sexual perversion. A town God destroyed because of the sexual immorality.

1Thessalonians 4:3 says it is God’s will (plan for your life) that you should be sanctified; that you should avoid sexual immorality.

Colossians 3:5 reminds us to put to death your sinful, earthly nature within you. And it lists: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed.

Ephesians 5:3 asks, are you a true Believer or an imitator of God. Sexual immorality, any kind of impurity or greed is improper for God’s holy people.

 

I wanted to blog about this because I know that sex toys are not pleasing to God, but I don’t feel many people know this or understand this. And how do you know if you’re doing something wrong if no one tells you?

Sexual sins are hard to fight. I can testify to this and speak defeat to this spirit because I once struggled with it and overcame it.  And I know that you can overcome it also.

As Believers, the Holy Spirit has given you the gift of self-control. Take control over your body.  Say NO.

Say no to the temptation, say no to sexual immorality, and say no to defiling your body.   You’re imitating an act that was created for your husband or wife.  Treat your body better.  Our thoughts should be pure, our behavior should be pure, and our conversations should be pure.

I’m praying for you and know that I’m here as a support also.

Conversations with God

conversations-with-god

 

So God just had this conversation with me.

He said many of us want to be in church for the New Year.

You want to start this year right. You want to make some positive change. But you’re allowing doubt to creep in and change your mind. You’re mad at God because you have been having talks with Him, but you think He is ignoring you. He said there are days when you are very receiving of Him and what He’s saying, you’re in agreement. But then you get mad at him and on those days you shut Him out.

God wants you to know that He is a true and living God, and He hears you, He hears the prayers, He sees your struggles. And He needs you to position yourself to receive from Him. Put yourself in a place where you can hear from Him, where He can send people to you, where you can get healing and help. Are you open to hear Him?

You’re hindering the communication He wants to have with you. It is great to pray, yes…but are you then taking time in the quietness to hear back from Him? Did you know that God will speak to you in His Word? Reading the bible can answer a lot of your questions. Many of you have created a dislike for church and you refuse to go, but that is also another way that the Lord will speak to you, He will feed you, will strengthen you, will connect you with what you need. There are also times when God is asking something of you, but because you won’t obey, you block your blessing from being released.

Sometimes our lives are so loud that we can’t hear God when He’s talking to us. I always encourage those I mentor or teach to get into a place of silence. When you’ve made up your mind to walk this walk for Christ, draw away from all the outside distractions and get into a quiet place where it’s just you and God; and get to know Him.

Be consistent. Make your choice and stick to it. The reason why the enemy can put doubt in your mind and have you debating if you want to spend time in the presence of God, is because you have not made up your mind. Make your choice and stick to it. Believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior of your life. No one can take away your belief!

And then do what is right. Right is always the best choice, the best decision.

Stay Blessed and choose Christ this New Year!

YOU have purpose….yes YOU!

image

Don’t let anyone tell you or make you feel as if you don’t have purpose!

Yes, some of us can make things work better than others. But that does not mean you don’t have a place in this world too.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has plans for YOU. Which means he set somethings aside just for you. It’s coming!

But I must ask, what are you doing until then?  When we don’t know how to get somewhere, some of us WILL ask for directions. But some of us won’t. Some of us will get the directions but still try to find it on our own. But some of us still won’t ask. Some of us give up when it starts looking to difficult. Some of us never try.

Guarantee you, someone out there is  waiting to be used by God to help you, but they can’t find you in the sea of people until you raise your hand for help.

There is more to your relationships than you think…

relationships

 

When I speak about relationships and the workshop I do, I’m not just referring to boyfriend & girlfriend or husband & wife relationships. I’m speaking about ALL RELATIONSHIPS.
You are in a parent/child relationship.
You are in a friend to friend relationship.
You are in a family relationship…you have sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, Grandparents.
You are in co-worker relationships.
You are in a co-parenting relationship.

All the relationships in your life are important to God. He wants you to be in healthy & loving relationships all around.
I’m reminding you of this because I want you to look at the relationships you have or don’t have. I’m reminding you of this because I want you to examine how you get along with others in your life. If a relationship is divided or broken, strained or unhealthy, compromising or just plain wrong….as People of God we must seek God in how to make it right.

If it means you need to forgive…forgive.
If it means you need to say I’m sorry…say I’m sorry.
If it means that you pray for them and move on…pray for them and move on.

God has commanded us to love one another. Relationships are important to God. And the devil knows that if he can cause strife and division in them, he can stop a nation, he can be a hindrance to the move of God. DO NOT ALLOW HIM TO HAVE THAT POWER!!! God wants to do something in that relationship…why do you think you were in it in the first place? But now, NOTHING can happen because you’ve allowed the devil to come in and make you hate each other. Ya’ll can’t even talk to each other anymore!
For many of us…we need to ‘clean house and rearrange things’ within ourselves so we can be at a place to create and maintain healthy & loving relationships. But many of us don’t think we need to. We think all is well. We are ALL overdue and in need of learning better ways to love ourselves and others.

Life around us is evolving everyday…yet we stay the same.

Just something to think about…and get in touch with me about my next workshop.

To whom much is given…

In my reading this morning…
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48)

Which means, we are held responsible for what we have. If we are blessed with talents, wealth, knowledge, time, and the like, it is expected that we use them to glorify God and benefit others. We have been entrusted with certain things, and faithfulness requires that we manage those things wisely and unselfishly.

How are you managing what God has entrusted you with? Are you a good steward = responsible planning and managing of your resources?
How are you managing your finances?
How are you managing your relationships…with boyfriend, girlfriend, parents, children, friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc.?
Are you responsible in the position you have been given? As a manager, as an administrator, as a parent, as an employee, as a servant of the Lord?

This scripture is not just for those who are wealthy and have the means to give and help, but it is for YOU. If you woke up this morning, got out of bed, got dressed, ate a lil breakfast….you have something to give. You’ve been entrusted with something to help the Kingdom of God. Do you know what it is? Have you positioned yourself before God so He can use you?

How many are choosing NOT to be used by God?

You still have time. Monday…. new day to make positive change!
I encourage you…I’m here for you….I pray for you!

Are you living backwards?

download

 

We are living and setting our standards on backward thinking. But if you desire to live a God standard, you have to change the way you think, reposition yourself and begin to re-align your life.

 

I know I made many of my choices off of wrong thinking, rebellious thoughts and ignorance.  But the great thing about the God I serve, is that he is patient with us, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

(2 Peter 3:9)

 

Romans 12:2 tells us not to be conformed to the ways of the world, but transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will know that good and perfect will of God.

 

Learn the mind of God to learn your new standard.

Stay Blessed,

Want to know how to get revenge?

revenge

 

First let’s define the word so we know what we are getting into.

Vengeance – infliction of injury, harm, humiliation, or the like, on a person

Revenge – retaliation for injuries or wrongs, especially in a resentful or vindictive spirit.

Some of us are walking around with a vindictive spirit.  Your way of thinking is…you do me wrong, I’mma do you wrong.  You get me…I have to get you back.

As God provides us opportunities, opens doors for us, resolves our problems, makes ways for us and gives us the desires of our heart, we have to be mindful that we don’t step in the way of the blessings by then doing something that goes against Gods will.  Which is anything in opposition to Him.

For example….

God said that vengeance is His. Meaning He will sort that out for you. You don’t have to go after that person. God sees EVERYTHING, trust He didn’t miss what they did to you. But you have to allow the time to sort it out for you. You can’t go moving ahead of Him because you think He is moving to slow. Remember that Gods timing is perfect!

Just like every action we make…the 1st phase starts in our minds with a thought.   So if you’re thinking of how you can get back at them, your thought is already in opposition to Gods will.  In this situation, we should tell God, “I’m sorry” move that thought out of my mind.  Tell God you put it in His hands and leave it alone!

Another example….

Sometimes you’re not even thinking about that person, but all of a sudden you just happen to find out that person is going through something or had a mishap.  1st thought is “humph that’s what they get” so now you feel the need to make it known that you know about their problem.  Maybe even rub it in their face a little. That would feel good, BUT that is not of God.  You have just taken the situation back into your hands to seek revenge.

We are always in need of something from God….why hinder that because you want to be mean to someone.  As Believers, we want to always move in a way that is pleasing to God.  Take the high road, as they say.  The end result will always be a benefit to you.

And can I add just one more crazy thought?

Pray for that person.  You would be amazed at how God responds to the prayers you lift up for those who persecute you, those who aren’t good to you.

Then pray for yourself.  Pray for direction, pray for staying power to let God lead, and pray for more of Him and less of you.  More times God won’t exactly change your situations; He will change you in your situations.

Romans 12:19 ~ Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the LORD.

Stay Blessed
