Please remember that the 2nd Annual Women's Conference is approaching. I know that it seems like its far away, but when it comes to the things of God, I am very efficient because God wants everything to be decent and in order. So, I want to make sure that the conference room is big enough for everyone to be comfortable and I want to make sure that I have enough gifts. Even if you think you can make it sign in and if something changes with your schedule then decline, but I hope not.
Also you can purchase a copy of my book, "Mighty Woman of God", for less than $10 on www.amazon.com. One more thing, please keep in mind that you can always call me for prayer 678-629-3179, I don't work so my prayer line is always available. That is what this ministry is all about.
(Matthew 11:28-30), Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light".
The Lord's burden is light. Meaning, He won't put more on you than you can bare. Let me say that again, HE won't. So that does not mean that other people in your life won't put more on you than you can bare. That person doesn't care about how much you can bare, they will just keep trying to stuff more of their mess into your baggage. And single moms, you already have children that you have to take care of, why accept someone else's baggage? I watch a lady try to stuff and rearrange her baggage so that it could fit in the overhead compartment. That is what some women are doing, trying to stuff your baggage with someone's stuff.
I used to call myself a married single mom. I say that because although I was married, my husband at the time was no good. He was a cheater and a beater. And his baggage was very heavy and the burdens that I bore while being married to him was not light.
Woman of God, some men know when they have a good woman, a woman of integrity and value. He also know that you are the kind of woman that will always take care of your children. No matter what happens, you will always find a way to keep a roof over your head and food in the cabinet. So he counts on you being a good mother and provider. That type of man will stay with you, even though he is out running the streets. Even if you decide to move, he will start acting like he got some sense, long enough for him to be included in on your future plans. That type of man, doesn't have a planned future, but he know that you do. That type of man is counting on you to be you, a good mother and provider for her children.
Women are very emotional creatures, a lot of times we follow our hearts. The bible says that we don't even know our own hearts, God does know our hearts. That is why prayer and having a relationship with Jesus Christ is very important. Trust the Lord for your mate. If your baggage becomes your burden, then maybe it's time for you to lighten the load. Stop, take a deep breath and start rearranging and even throwing some things in your life that are heavy burdens. If you keep that man's baggage that does not fit with your, then you are taking a chance that you won't be able to get to your destination because you have too much baggage.
Heavenly Father, I thank and praise You for who your are and what you have done in my life. I pray dear Lord that you keep me from carrying burdens that I cannot bare. Your burdens are light and I am praying that you help me to lighten my baggage. Father I don't what to live a life where I am carrying someone else's burden that don't care about me or my well-being. Heavenly Father, my desire is to follow after you and allow the Holy Spirit to teach and guide me. In Jesus name, Amen!
