What You Talking?

One of my favorite movies is Big Momma’s House. There is this one scene where Martin Lawrence is dressed up like Big Momma and he is talking to someone. His line is “What you talking”? I just love that line. We have to be so careful what we speak. We need to consciously pay attention to what we are talking about, the conversations we are engaging in and the intent behind our words. God spoke and things came into being. Jesus teaches us that if we believe and speak to the mountain without any doubt that the mountain will move. He teaches us that what He has done we can do also and Jesus spoke to demons and they had to release the person they were dwelling in.

There is power in our words. My seven year old, Peyton, tells me all the time to watch my words. If I say something negative she quickly tells me that I have to speak it into existence. We must be so careful of our words. You can write the chapters in your life by what you speak into existence and what you invite into your life.

Today be conscious of the words that come out of your mouth and the conversations you are engaging in.If you are not speaking positive words that edify and build you up and others then you should really try to change that aspect of yourself.

Marriage is Work-Keep It Alive so it won’t have to be Revived

Marriage is a job. It is not an institution that you should enter into lightly. You should be sure that this is the person for you and that you can’t imagine tomorrow without him/her. God created marriage because He said it is not good for man to be alone but loneliness can not be your reason for choosing your mate. Don’t look for a fixer upper either. Know your worth and value and what you are bringing to the table and expect him/her to bring something to the table as well. Be sure that this person is your true friend and your soul mate. Recognize that you are making a vow before God and you should take it seriously.

I enjoyed being a wife when I was married. I never intended to get a divorce, however, at the same time I didn’t marry for the reasons I listed above. I was lonely and ready to get married and start a family so that is what I did. It was a huge mistake that couldn’t be corrected. I am not sure why my husband married me but it definitely wasn’t out of love. This I know because he was constantly having affairs and he knew the pain it caused me each time I learned of one of them. Never the less it was a huge lesson learned for me.

I do miss having someone to pray for and someone to do little things for. Like sending him flowers just because and leaving notes in his car and putting little notes in his lunch bag that I packed for him daily. You must put in the work to show the other person that you care and that they are still number one on your list. If not love will surely get lost in the day-to-day shuffles of life. Here are some examples of things I used to do:
Scavenger hunts
Surprised weekend getaway and I have his bags packed and ready to go when he walks through the door
Roses and candles and cards placed beside every other rose that lead to our room when he would come home from late meetings
Created menus that would have entrees, a la cartes and deserts. He would not have a choice of the entrée which could be a movie or a museum visit or art gallery but he would have a choice of the a la carte and desserts are optional.

These were just little things that I felt would mean a lot to him and let him know that I had his back and that he was appreciated. I can’t stress enough that marriage is work and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you find that love you are destined to have pray about it and let God lead you in every decision you make regarding that person. Keep God first and center and always, always seek advice in the bible before you seek it from those around you.

Ride Out Your Storm

There is a song that a lot of Baptist church choirs sang. As a matter of fact my cousin just sang it in her dad’s church Sunday. It is such a moving and inspirational song because it reminds you that you are never alone and that regardless of what you go through God is right here with you.

There are many times in life when we wonder where is God and we may even ask God if He see what someone just did to you or how bad the doctor report was? That is a part of being human. God is surely with us each step of the way. You must ride out your storm because joy is waiting for you in the morning. Just hold on and ride out your storm.
