Women’s History Month

So, I read a blogpost today that informed me that March is the official Women’s History Month.  I just so happen to be reading an amazing book regarding women…and the most  powerful woman that has ever lived.  

Have you ever wondered why most women are not happy in their lives?  They were told that they “could have it all,” (whatever that may mean) and they swallowed that lie…hook, line, and sinker.  Families are floundering, and actually torn apart. Women are attempting to find happiness where it is impossible to find, and men are confused as to what their role is.

People are confused and deceived.  There are not many who truly know their worth and understand what true happiness is.

We can see the unrest and loss of dignity in a world where everyone is led to believe that they must be selfish…that they must be happy every minute, and relationships and marriage only works when “I only do the things that I want to do,” and “I only want to do things that make me happy.”

Really? Is that truly where happiness and love reside…in a heart that only strives toward oneself?

When I look around and see the depression, numbness, anger, sadness, and bitterness all around me, in a world where we have the most material things that we could desire…homes, food, water, entertainment, online access, education…I have to wonder WHY.

I have had a book sitting on my bookshelf for awhile .  I picked it up the other day and started reading.

WOW, WOW, WOW. And WOW.

It describes all that is currently happening with women, men, families, and our country.  The author completely explains the steps that got us to this point, and the hows, whys and the whos that led us to where we are today.

Please pick up a copy of this book.  It will open your eyes to truths and facts that have been happening right in front of us…we were sucked in. Bit by bit.

It all sounded so great…having it all…until it didn’t.

We all kept trying to persevere…we must be doing it wrong!  Surely if we hang in there and do what “they” tell us to do, we will be happy.

Really?

The Anti-Mary Exposed Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Feminity by Carrie Gress  will change your perception of what “is.”  It will challenge you, and may be the perfect thing to read at the start of Lent. Or anytime that you are looking for Truth.  May God bless you in your search

One More Day

You are reading this, so I know that God has blessed you with another day. No matter what your circumstance, you have been given the opportunity to:

Have one more day to grow in faith and get to know Jesus in a more intimate way than you knew Him yesterday;

Breathe in the essence of God, allowing His Holy Spirit to envelop your whole being;

Give thanks for the air that you breathe, the feelings that you feel, your senses which allow you to interact with God and the people in your life;

Break free from hanging on to the bitterness and pain that is holding you in bondage…FORGIVEboth yourself and others;

Pray for all the people that the Lord places on your heart, especially including those that make you feel uncomfortable, or those that have hurt you or are living in darkness;

Share Jesus continuously by showing love to those around you…pray for the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and heart, and you will be guided to the people and the ways you can share His Saving Love and Grace with them;

Enjoy and thank God for the goodness and wonder of the blessings in your life…stop and take time to remember and acknowledge as many as you can. Create a never ending mental list of gratitude;

Offer your daily crosses to the Lord – the boredom and struggles of daily life, your pain, frustration, and sufferings…unite them with the suffering of Jesus in atonement for your sins and the whole world.

Enjoy and savor One More Day…for you are One More Day closer to a wondrous and unfathomable eternal life with Your Father.

A New Chapter in Your Story

What in your life needs a change…a new beginning?  Think hard about this question.

You can’t fool God.  The Holy Spirit knows the innermost secrets of why you are the person you are, and where your struggles and pain originated from.  Much of the time, you are not even aware of the real roots of the fear, bitterness, anger, hurt, pain, shame, rebellion and anxiety that reside in your heart and hold you back from the joy that Jesus wishes to bestow on you.

In the story of your life, why do you choose to relive the same chapter, over and over?  What are you holding on to?  Has your reliving and hanging on to the pain and hurts in your life helped you in any way?  Do you feel free and joy-filled, or do you feel bound and miserable?

You can continue to lie to the world, and even lie to yourself, however your lies are ineffective with your Heavenly Father.  He knows the truth of your pain.  His love for YOU is so perfect and all consuming, that he sent his Son into our sinful world to take upon himself…all of your sins, all of your weaknesses, and all of your pain and suffering.  He experienced and felt all of that pain and suffering for you,  so you could be saved and have eternal life with him!

You may be asking, “Where has God been while I was hurt, abused, and shamed?”  Why wasn’t he there for me?

He was there all along and is still there….waiting…for you to say YES to him.

He is waiting for you to finally let go of the pain, which is so tightly clenched in your closed hands and heart.  He is waiting to hear you say,

“Jesus, I  trust in you.  I am sorry for all the ways I have offended you and closed my heart to you.  I ask that you take control of my life…my body, mind and soul.  I submit all that I am to You, for I am nothing on my own.  I have tried so many ways to heal myself, and I finally realize that your saving mercy and love is the only true way to happiness and joy.  Help me to submit all that I am to you, and give me the strength to forgive the ones in my life that have opened the doors to my bitterness and despair.  Help me to renounce the darkness and hardness of heart that permeates my soul. I pray that you replace the darkness with your pure and loving light, and infuse my heart with the intense love of your Sacred Heart.  Thank you, Jesus.  Thank you for never giving up on me.  Thank you for always loving me.”

I  assure you, that after you give yourself totally to the Lord, He will bless your life with a brand new chapter…leading to true joy and eternal life.   You will have a new direction, and your story of faith will be a blessing to many suffering souls.

Are you willing to take that step and let go?  Jesus is right there in your presence, waiting to hear your answer.
