Watching my step...TODAY.

Today was one of those days.  I awoke this morning really missing my husband (we are separated).  I started my day with a prayer to overcome the feelings, but I then decided to take things into my own hands.  Now, this is going to sound crazy : ) but since my separation, I have been doing little things to make sure I keep myself on track.  I understand that right now I am wide open for the "enemy" to attack.  I have not been shaving my legs, my toe nails looked a mess, and I have only been wearing the "dreaded" undies : )

But this morning...after I had showered and gotten dressed, I stopped myself in my tracks and did a U turn.  I undressed, got BACK in the shower, shaved every part of my body, as I dried off, I took off my old toe nail polish, painted my toes, and pulled out my pretty lacey "undies"!  I wore a nicely "fitted" shirt and skirt, with my maroon colored Stiletoes!  I put on my best smelling perfume, grabbed my purse and headed out the door!!!!!!  Yes, my attitude had changed.  And I was determined to get ALL of the attention today, because I felt good and I know I looked good!  Then it happened.  A very nice looking guy was parked next to my car as I left the office.  And he lingered... And that's when the reality hit me!  I was not ready for that!!!!  I am still praying for my marriage to work!  I jumped in my car and without looking at the gentleman twice, drove off!  And I laughed!  Who was I getting back at?  Why did I have such an attitude?  Oh well, I went back to my office and remained there.  I know longer wanted the "attention".  I smiled, because I knew the "Red Sonya" would never totally die : )  It was nice to see her today...but she has to go!

Think and Walk Today.

As you go about your day today, don't just "mind-less-LY do things...THINK. One thing is for sure...somebody IS going to offend you today. Somebody IS going to deceive you today. Somebody IS going to hurt you today. Somebody IS going to abuse your trust and love today. But THINK about your response.

"But I say to you WHO HEAR: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you." ~ Luke 6:27-28

Because when we take matters into our own hands, when we make emotional decision to "get back" it's going to always lead us in a bad place, and we will find ourselves calling out to the Lord to rescue us. And the Lord has said...

"But why do you call Me "Lord, Lord", and not do the things which I say?" Luke 6:46

Let's walk today as if we were taught how to walk...in love and in Spirit.

Enjoy your day today and THINK as you WALK.

A soilder for the Lord...In My Stiletoes!

It is amazing. I woke up this morning, feeling like a true soldier for the Lord...IN MY STILETOES!!! I am filled with the authority that CHRIST said I HAVE! I am walking in faith today, filled and led with the Holy Spirit, with a song of faith in my heart and a Holy word from God in my mind and spirit. God loved me enough this morning to wake me up "At Attention"! My life belongs to HIM and HE will have HIS way with me!!!!!!!!!!!
