Keeping the vision is all about staying focused on your goals in life and staying encouraged. It is very easy to get distracted in life with all of the challenges we can face sometimes. That is why it is so important to keep your vision in front of you and pursue it with all you've got! God has a plan for each of us and it is so important that we ASK him what that plan is and stay on course. It is okay if we slip sometimes on this path because that is what the Blood of Jesus has accomplished. When we fail just plead that Blood and keep pressing towards that vision. In my page I will discuss topics such as relationships, spiritual matters, fun things, and so much more. Just check it out!

"Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]--blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he." Proverbs 29:18

Woman's Worth.....(Part 1)

A woman is so very valuable and precious.  Oftentimes we as men do not realize how valuable and fragile a woman is.  Life is actually birth from her womb.  Behind every strong man you will find a good woman.  They should be appreciated and respected even if they do not realize their own value.  As men we should never take advantage of a woman nor take her for granted.  She should not be abused verbally nor physically nor in any other fashion.  The Bible speaks highly of women and states that "Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord" --Proverbs 18:22.  It also says that "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband:...." Proverbs 12:4. 

In Genesis the Bible tells us that Adam was formed from the dust of the ground, but his wife Eve was taken of a rib from Adam's side and a woman was formed from this exchange.  So even the creation of a woman was more special.  As mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, daughters, nieces and so on women have helped to make the men in their lives stronger and reach his full potential. The support of women often goes unappreciated and is undervalued, but to some it is priceless.  Proverbs 31 speaks very highly of virtuous women and their roles in the household.  As men we should line our mindset up with how God values women and change our perspective of how they are to be treated.  Simple gestures such as holding doors, pulling out chairs etc.., should be observed in the prescence of a lady.  Though these are small gestures they still express tokens of your appreciation.  If a woman is in need do not look at it as an opportunity to get in good with her look at it as an opportunity to honor God regardless of whether or not she is interested in you afterwards. 

Do everything as unto the Lord, because if you do it unto the least of his brethren you have done it unto him (Matt. 25:40).  Anytime a man of God does something financial for a woman of God it should be looked at as a seed and not an expense or money lost.  We are constantly developing and renewing our minds and we will continue to get stronger in this area.  If we keep God first in all that we do including our interactions with women we will be blessed in our doing so and God will honor that.  I thank God for women, whatever their capacity be it mother or wives.  They are truly a help meet for us.
