Why is God not answering my prayer?
The feeling of another headache. This tiredness that just won’t go away. I know what I should do—bake. That always makes me feel a little better, especially if it is one of the family favorites: Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.

Godly Woman Characteristic – Belief (Series)
“You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that – and shudder.” – James 2:19
Even the demons believe
A few years ago, in my frustrations with my ex-husband, I declared to him James 2:19. You see, he was not a Christian but firmly believed that there is one God. He was a man of the world and my frustrations came about when he said to me, “You see things only in black and white. ‘You are either a Christian or not. You are either going to hell or you are going to heaven.’ I believe that there is a God. I do good things for people. I am as much a Christian as you.”

Why is God silent?
“Why is God silent?” asked my friend. “That isn’t right. God is never silent. Right?”
Chuckling, I explained, “As a little girl, I loved reading the bible stories about men and women who encountered God. Persons whom God spoke to. Growing up as an adult, in my times of great stress and tribulation, I didn’t hear from God. To me, God was very silent. When I reached a breaking point a few years ago, I confronted God as to why He was so silent,”

My heart cries for those families that have experienced loss during this pandemic of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). My friend, you may be feeling fear or anxiety when watching the news. I want to encourage you to put your trust in God (Psalm 56:3). The Word tells us “do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

What does a Godly Woman look like? 17 things you need to know.
I was listening to a radio show recently, and someone on the panel said with passion in his voice, “As a man, I am guilty of looking on the outside for beauty. But, I don’t just want any woman. I want a Godly woman.” Another panel member quickly responded, “I agree with you. But the trouble is finding one.”
That left me disheartened. I wanted to call in and say, “we are here.” But it got me thinking. Is it that we are hard to find, or is it because who we are and show to the world, does not identify the God that is in us?

What are you giving up for Lent?
“Lent is nearing soon, what are you giving up for Lent?” asked my Aunt. Pausing at my doorstep, my hands went straight to my hips, and I huffed, “I don’t know. I am struggling with this,” shaking my head, I started walking through the door. Time for work.
I was struggling with figuring out what to do for Lent. And I wasn’t sure why. My first thought was that I was going to stop eating bread during Lent. But I couldn’t find any peace with that decision.

The Greatest Love Story
Once Upon a Time, there was a ….
Is that not how all the great love stories start? Sometimes it feels that way. Rushing to finish my Saturday chores, I paused to answer a call from a friend. To be honest, I didn’t mean to answer the phone. I needed to get all the items on my list checked off.

Have you heard?
Have you heard? There is so much happening in the world around us and sometimes it is so easy to turn a blind eye. I, unfortunately, am someone that doesn’t listen to news daily, but something caught my attention which prompted me to ask these questions:

This Christmas Message
In Church on Sunday, our Pastor told us a story:
“In a Sunday School class, a teacher stated to her students, “Who can tell me what Christmas means?”. The kids provided a few answers, “Santa Claus, presents, snow, lots of food, Jesus.”
“That is right,” said the teacher. “Let’s talk a little bit about the birth of Jesus.” Before she could proceed, an eight-year-old girl exclaimed, “He was born again!”
