Dressed For Succes: Righteousness

Breastplate of Righteousness Stand in Your Forgiveness “Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness” - Ephesians 6:14 When I committed my life to Jesus, a huge load fell off my shoulders.

When I recommitted my life to Jesus, again I had an incredible joy and freedom.  Again, the joy, peace and freedom felt amazing. To pu...

Dressed for Success: Truth

Open, honest communication saves marriages. Out of nowhere a couple of nights ago, my husband brought up a private issue we had not discussed since we remarried in 1996. Our avoidance offended Ken. Even though I felt I had the right at the time, the past remained stagnant and in place. Like a fish tank in need of cleaning, our avoidance further dirtied the water. Judgement, criticism, and anger put a curse on our marriage. Satan knew it. He used it against us time and time again. He took advantage of this elephant in the room for over 20 years. Ken’s honesty opened my eyes.  I prayed t...

Jakes stated on Oprah’s Lifeclass Tour, “When you expect someone to love on a gallon level and they are a pint person you are going to be frustrated for the rest of your life.” The one offending you will not be able to measure up.

Pray for Your Enemy

  When a friend used to be upset with her boss, I suggested she pray for her boss. It was the last thing she wanted to do. But she did, and it worked like a charm. It changed her boss’s attitude. PRAYING changes the way you go through your day. Pray for Your Enemy “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies!

For he gives His sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike...

But it did not make a difference in the way I felt and neither did it make me feel justified. NOT getting offended is choosing PEACE of mind AGAINST antagonism. This response turns it into a blessing instead of a curse, not only for you, but also for the one who offended you. The real answer is to not react but to respond like Jesus, HIS way. Jesus was confronted by a group of religious leaders who put in front of Him a woman that was caught in...
