“She Speaks Conference 2010″

She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:26

PROVERBS 31 “ She Speaks Conference 2010″
I just want to share the impact of  Proverbs 31 Ministries for the encouraging emails I receive each day, it is a confirmation of God unfailing love and grace for us. It inspires through the living testimony of each writers life.

I am a student and encourager of God’s word, since 2004 I have written Devotions and Prayers; general ones as well as personal ones how ever the “Holy Spirit” leads. The She Speaks Conference taught and equipped me through the ladies of the Proverbs 31 Ministries to use God’s gifts given to encourage and build up in love through the power of God’s Word….I have been diligently writing each day since my return from She Speaks Conference 2009.

It was an exciting time of learning and gleaning from the woman who are working diligently to answer the call to speak and write through the wisdom of God’ Word.  I was so blessed by each training.   
If you have been given the gift to speak, write or leadership my enocouragement to you is to attend “She Speaks Conference 2010″ it will empower you through the testimonies shared by the speakers and other women you will meet.  My desire and prayer is to attend this year to glean from the women on the Speakers Track.

28 Days to LOVE ~ Day 4

28 Days to LOVE ~Day 4

 

Love Excellently:
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other,
just as in Christ God forgave you.  Ephesians 4:32

Encouragement Shared:
This morning as I woke up this one thought came to my mind.  Even the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.  Proverbs 12:10   It brought to mind those times when I have been selfish, self-seeking and yes wicked.  The worst part of that is when it’s covered up with kindness.  In God’s eyes that is cruel.  We can best believe there will not be any jewel in our crown for that sort of behavior. 

The word of God encourages us to: Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else [ Those outside of the body of Christ ].  1 Thessalonians 5:15     Kindness is a gracious and poised demeanor, When we look at the list of “The Attributes of Love is Life by The Spirit” in the book of 1 Corinthians 13, we see Patient and Kind .  We can also look at the list  in the book of Galatians 5 …the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Patience and kindness are there together they are a team.  Where there is kindness, patience is there along with it. more…

28 Days to LOVE ~ Day 3

Love Excellently – Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

Encouragement Shared:
Love is Patient-Our willingness to show patience and love is displayed in our reaction when the flow of life is not in agreement to our plans.  It is through wisdom and maturity that we are the patient wife; the patient mother, the patient daughter, the patient employee, and the patient friend.  I often hear in Christian circles; “Oh don’t pray for patience because God will bring you trials and tribulations for sure.” This is a false mind set, Jesus stated in this world you will have troubles, but take heart I have over come the world. John 16:33  Our impatience is just an overflow of our heart.  It is also an outward view of our unwillingness to relinquish control and trust in the Lord and dwell in safe pasture.  It is through the word of hope that illuminates the issues the condition of our heart.  It is through the word of God that a patient man gains understanding, however a quick-tempered man displays folly.  [Proverbs 14:29]  I enjoy the Proverbs; it assists in attaining wisdom and a disciplined life.  We receive understanding and clarity for direction in life through the word of God.  The result; it causes the simple to be wise and mature not lacking in anything.  Patience is a godly virtue:  Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14  more…
