HAVE YOU GIVEN UP THE POWER?

R-E-S-P-E-CT...Many women today wonder why men don't respect them. A man will not respect a woman that doesn't respect herself. Unfortunately, many women are not aware of their worth. If you behave like you have no morals, that's exactly how you will be treated. If you give a guy everything that he wants before he commits to you, what will motivate him to commit to you? Why in the world would you perform wifely duties without a ring on your finger? If you don't require certain things, you will end up with the short end of the stick. There is no reason why another human being should have control over your mind and body. If you have given up the power, it is not too late to get your power back. You don't have to continue living as if you are not worth anything. You must first learn to love and respect yourself. Once you learn to do that you will demand nothing less. Even though men may be the stronger sex, women are powerful beings. A man won't do anymore than you allow him to do. Don't let insecurities or low self esteem allow you to be mistreated.

B-E-A-U-T-Y....Even though beauty may get you ahead in life, your true power lies within.  As women we have to stop focusing solely on beauty. Beauty will only get you so far, there are plenty of other beautiful women out there. With that being said, know that being beautiful won't make a man stay with you. You have to possess other traits such as kindness, intelligence, a good personality, a strong mind, ability to be affectionate, and reliability. You have a lot to offer as a woman, and you should never sell yourself short.

 Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y....Men may be partly responsible for degradation of women, but they are not responsible for women who degrade themselves.There are women that are fully aware that they are degrading themselves and they have no issue with it. Some women have the attitude that if a man can do certain things and be accepted by society, then we should be able to participate in those activities as well. However, that is not the case. Women have always been held to a higher standard than men. It may not seem fair, but that is life. Society may accept lesser quality women, but you must keep your standards high. You have the power not to be abused, cheated on, misused, and degraded.

"Who can find a virtuous woman?" Proverbs 31;10

Corrosion of the Soul

Deliberately sinning while requesting forgiveness.
Picking and choosing that which is appealing.
Rejecting anything that doesn't suit you.
Adjusting beliefs to match feelings within.
Professing beliefs but not living accordingly.
Claiming spirituality without the spirit.
Conveniently living a lie but feeling no better inside.
Embracing wrong because living right is undesired.
Praying for a blessing in one breath.
But speaking profanely in another.
Trying to accommodate both worlds
You have gained one and lost another.
Claiming allegiance but you are living in vain
Gradual destruction because of the hypocrisy within...

A SECOND CHANCE

What do you do when given a second chance? Do you learn from the previous experience or do you continue to do the same thing over and over again? A second chance allows you to do something different, something better, a chance for redemption. We have all been given second chances, but we have not all been wise with the second chances that we were given. There are times when I took my second chance for granted because I was sure that there would be another opportunity for me to do better. In all that I have experienced in life, I am glad that I still have a second chance. I feel that once certain events occur in one's life they affect the outcome of your life forever. There will be times when you will say to yourself "What if?" I'm truly glad to say that I cherish the second chance that I have been given. Even though I haven't made all the smartest decisions in the world, at this moment right now I'm not asking myself "What If." Instead I'm trying to make the best of this second chance that has been given to me. Know that in this journey you will make mistakes, after all you are only human. It is my prayer that we do not continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. Always remember that everyone hasn't been given a second chance. If you find yourself with a second chance take full advantage of it, it might be your last.
