for when he is tried, he shall receive the
crown of life, which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him."
and our batting average for resisting it
is not always impressive.
Our experiences are a lot like seat belts on cars.
When we don't fasten them,
the buzzer goes off and annoys us.
And though we know they are there for our protection,
we choose to fasten them behind us
and thus shut off the buzzer
that was reminding us to do the safe thing.
Christians know deep down inside what is right.
And we know that the right thing
is the best thing for us.
And God coaches us from the inside with
His "buzzer," the Holy Spirit,
to help us resist temptation.
But often, we choose to ignore this buzzer also
and look for a way to shut it off.
We ignore God's signal and follow our own,
even though experience shows us
that things get messed up when do not listen to Him.
We need to understand a little more about how
Satan uses temptation
and how we can win the battle.
An understanding of the kinds of strategies
Satan uses to defeat us
can help us overcome temptation.
Listen for the buzzer of the Holy Spirit,
and don't ignore God's safety alert,
for He always shows us what's best for us!

I am so thankful to have been a part of the Pink Collar Club's first collaboration book effort. It was an incredible journey; God orchestrated 10 women to share their thoughts on the 10 commandments (one commandment per week) for 10 weeks!
Mirror, Mirror...on the Wall is the finished product in e-book form. This e-book is comprised of 100 devotionals, as well as a place for you to journal your thoughts.
I pray that this devotional on the 10 commandments will draw you into an even closer, more intimate walk with our God.
Writing this book took me on a journey that I never expected!
God drew me closer to His chest than ever before...a place that I never want to leave.
Thanks so much for your support!
Half of the proceeds will be sent to the Pink Collar Club, an excellent Christian ministry for women. Come find out your unique purpose for the Kingdom of God, as well as connect with other women who have a heart for God.

Signs You are Nearing Exhaustion or Empty
A good indication you are running low on fuel is when you feel anxious, angry, feel you are never good enough or tired of trying. I know becasue I have been so tired of tying to overcome my sin nature. It feels like a never ending battle doesn’t it?
So what is the quickest way to get the arrow towards F? Prayer, Bible study, fellowship? I’ve made the mistake of trying to work to get my tank fuller. I thought if I worked harder, prayed more, studied my Bible more, volunteered more at church that it would make up for all my sins. How arrogant! My sins, guilt and shame have been taken care of on the cross at a price higher than I could ever pay.
The fuel comes from rest. By giving God control. Christianity is not a self improvement program. Its not about us, its about Him. It’s about resting in Him allowing Him living His live in us. Giving Him control.
Our fuel tank is filled when we give up control and rest in God in all circumstances instead of trying to free ourselves. Only then can we be at peace.
When you allow Him to fill you your daily focus will be on love. WHen you understand how much He loves you, you will desire to obey the two main commands (a summery of all the law): loving Him and loving others.
Love everyone. Look at everyone that crosses your path through God’s eyes. Recognise that each person has been broken spiritually and love them as you would love an abused child.

and those who seek me find me."

"How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
