Questions

"Am I maintaining the kinds of boundaries in my relationships with men that promote biblical standards of purity?"

"Do I recognize and accept that God created the woman to complete, complement, and help the man?"

"Do I respond to men in ways that communicate appropriate respect and affirmation of their manhood?"

"Do I focus more time and effort on cultivating inner spiritual beauty than I do on matters of external beauty?"

"Am I concerned more about being holy than about being happy?"

"Am I placing my hope and trust in God rather than in people?"

"Do I dress modesty?"

"Do I have a reputation for being a women of moral virtue and godly character?"

"Do I bless my family, friends, and acquaintances by speaking words that are kind and wise?"

"Do I have a teachable spirit?"

"Do I receive instruction with a meek, obedient spirit?"

"Am I a hard worker?"

"Am I faithful in fulling practical responsibilities in my home?"

"Is my life a godly example to younger woman?"

"Am I self-controlled and temperate in the way I speak and in my lifestyle?"

"Have I yield all "rights" to God and therefore can respond with meekness and forgiveness when others wrong me?"

"Do I indulge my mind in suggestive books, magazines, television programs, or movies?"

"Is my behavior with men sometimes aggressive, bold, or flirtatious?"

"Do I take time to renew my mind with Word of God, so that I can be transform into the likeness of Jesus?"

"Am I faithful in praying for God to work in others' lives?"

"Am I quick to hear and slow to speak"?

These questions came from a book by Nancy Leigh DeMoss called Biblical Portrait of Womanhood. As I was going through this book I have said no to many of the questions of things I don't do at all. I know sometimes as a woman I can be mean (say really mean words) but I get convicted and repent for what I done. I was kind of sad at the end of this book becuase I so no to so many of the questions. This book made me realize that I need to work on some things. I need to pray to God about the questions that made me think do I or do I not do that? I look at these questions and I put my head down because I knew that their are somethings I don't do and have been struggling with.

Asia, remember that His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. The truth is that I had to answer "NO" to many of these questions myself. It's better to be honest with God, ourselves and others about our struggles because in that step of humility you have opened the door for God to strengthen you in your areas of weakness. Stay encouraged, and thanks for stopping by my little blog. I appreciate the words of encouragement.

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
