Most who know me(My Bestie Fa Show)knows that I am a die  heart fan(seriously) and although having following for many years, I never got a chance to actually see them perform in person. Until, last year 2016 where me and my bestie drove 6 hours just to see them in action. I have to say it was the BEST experience ever. I literally cried. A Month later GOD must have really loved me—They came to Truth Night Club In Dallas and of course me and my girls were not missing that performance at all. This time I got up close and personal and it was the best experience EVER! I MEAN EVER!!!!

Okay Not The Best Picture-But They Still Looked Good
Me And Zo(So handsome and goofy)

Me and John John(So Handsome)
And There Is John-John Again
Jimmy Singing Hard-Sorry So Blurry-He was Moving..LOL

Now ladies i have to take a quick pause here and explain this picture and this man(Whooo Weee-This man)So do any of you have that # 1 celebrity  that you  follow? I mean a true-to-heart # 1 fan–Meaning you know pretty much everything about them, including their full name first middle and last(lol) Well that’s ME!! If anyone challenges me you will not win when it comes to this very talented man. I was soooooo nervous after the concert when they did a meet-n-greet. I ran into a good friend who was very close them so meeting them came easy..just a little bit. I almost wanted to cry. I was face to face with someone i thought i would never see in my lifetime but it happened and now i’m hooked. He was so humble and goofy as i imagined him to be.

Here We Are Again(I had To..LOL)

We Birthday Buddies-January Rocks!

I will never forget that night and it will not be the last time i meet them as well. Me and My Bestie Plan to be at one of their shows in Atlanta in June. SEE YOU SOON!

10 Virtues Of The Proverbs Woman

 

Hello Lovelies!

My journey to be closer to God is a journey not yet accomplished. I love sharing inspirational finds. Here is a great post from another blogger,avirtuouswoman.org. I hope this finds you good and enjoy.

 Being a Proverbs 31 woman is not about being “perfect.” It’s about living life with purpose, diligence, forgiveness, and repentance.

Being a #Proverbs 31 woman is not about being “perfect.” It’s about living life with #purpose.

Often women believe that Proverbs 31 doesn’t really apply to our modern lives. Here at A Virtuous Woman, we believe that God’s Word stands the test of time. I wrote the 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman as the mission statement for A Virtuous Woman, but soon realized that it was more than a mission statement. The 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman demonstrates how, as Christian women today, we can all be Proverbs 31 Women.

The 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman

1. Faith – A Virtuous Woman serves God with all of her heart, mind, and soul. She seeks His will for her life and follows His ways. (Proverbs 31: 26, Proverbs 31: 29 – 31, Matthew 22: 37, John 14: 15, Psalm 119: 15

2. Marriage – A Virtuous Woman respects her husband. She does him good all the days of her life. She is trustworthy and a help meet. (Proverbs 31: 11- 12, Proverbs 31: 23, Proverbs 31: 28, 1 Peter 3, Ephesians 5, Genesis 2: 18)

3.  Mothering – A Virtuous Woman teaches her children the ways of her Father in heaven. She nurtures her children with the love of Christ, disciplines them with care and wisdom, and trains them in the way they should go. (Proverbs 31: 28, Proverbs 31: 26, Proverbs 22: 6, Deuteronomy 6, Luke 18: 16)

4. Health – A Virtuous Woman cares for her body. She prepares healthy food for her family. (Proverbs 31: 14 – 15, Proverbs 31: 17, 1 Corinthians 6: 19, Genesis 1: 29, Daniel 1, Leviticus 11)

7.  Industry – A Virtuous Woman works willingly with her hands. She sings praises to God and does not grumble while completing her tasks. (Proverbs 31: 13, Proverbs 31: 16, Proverbs 31: 24, Proverbs 31: 31, Philippians 2: 14)

Discover Your God Giving Gift

 

Hello LOVELIES! How are you this lovely morning? Things have been so crazy the last couple of weeks and i haven’t been able to blog like i should. Today i wanted to talk about “What Is Your God Giving Gift?” After joining my church over 2 years ago they had us take some very interesting courses that i wanted to share with you. The assessment was taken on assessme.org which information was provided by my church. I believe if you are not associated with any church you still may register and take an assessment.

After answering multiple questions i was finally matched. Here is what it revealed.

Yes my TOP spiritual gift was a Teacher. The gift of Teaching is a highly honored spiritual gift within the assembly of Christ Followers, but it is also a gift with severe responsibilities before God. The Bible warns us that those who teach among the people will be judged more harshly by God (James 3:1). A spiritually healthy teacher will not simply instruct the minds of his/her students, but will first instruct and apply unto him/herself the lessons taught by God through Scripture, and then only after the teacher can model the biblical lesson within his/her life, will he/she be authentically able teach the lesson to others.1 Corinthians 12:28 lists the gift of Teaching, when applied within the church, as an essential office within the ministry…subservient only to the greater offices of Prophets and Apostles. Ephesians 4:11-14 makes it clear that the teacher’s job description includes “Equipping the people for the works of service”. Paul specifically lists Teaching as one of the spiritual gifts in Romans 12:7.

My second top GIFT was of Encouragement. A person possessing the gift of encouragement has a unique ability to help others gain a positive emotional and spiritual perspective on their circumstances. Encouragers are people who find the positive in any situation. For them, “the glass is always half full”. Encouragers are at their best when they can motivate the assembly of Christ Followers to persevere in the struggle against sin and to strive for the accomplishment of God’s mission for the Church. The word Encouragement means “to instill courage into another person”.Romans 12:8 and Hebrews 10:24, 25 instructs all Christ Followers to “encourage one another”. This gift of encouragement is clearly exemplified in the life of a man named Joseph. Joseph is first mentioned in Acts 4:36 and 37. In this account we learn that Joseph sold all that he had and laid the money at the feet of the Apostles. From that time on, Joseph’s name was changed to “Barnabas” which means “Son of Encouragement”. In Acts 9:26 and 27 we learn that when all the disciples were afraid of Paul (Saul) and questioned whether his conversion was real, it was Barnabas that risked his own life to visit Paul and to introduce him to the body of believers. In Acts 13, the Holy Spirit instructed the Church at Antioch to set apart Paul and Banabus for a special missionary work…and so Barnabas became Paul’s ministry partner.Following Barnabas’ encouragement roles, we can identify three major ways in which the gift of Encouragement may express itself within the Church. Your personality style and calling from the Holy Spirit may enable you to focus the use of your gift.

Last, My TOP 3rd Spiritual Gift was Service. The gift of Help is sometimes also called the gift of Service or Mercy. The common attribute of this spiritual gift is the passion to humbly serve and support others within the assembly of Christ Followers. The person possessing the gift of Service will display a natural servant heart and will seek the welfare of others, even to the point of self-sacrifice. It is not uncommon for people with the gift of Helps to feel like they don’t have any gifts at all. But this is far from true. When the gift of Helps is appropriately applied within the body of Christ, the helper is acting very much like Jesus who said of his own ministry, “I did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28). Paul speaks honorably about Phoebe who had the gift of Helps…”I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church in Cenchrea. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints and give her any help she may need from you, for she has been a great help to many people, including me” (Romans 16:1 and 2). In 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, the Apostle Paul also lists “helping others” among the “greater gifts”. 1 Peter 4:11 instructs: “if any one serves, he should do it in the strength that God provides….”

As i journey through this thing we call spiritual growth i pray my gift can touch others. I pondered often what could i teach? Where can i utilize my encouragement for others and how can i serve? I’m learning day by day ya’ll and hope you will too

BE BLESSED
