to whom do you belong...

There's been a shift. A change in my heart. A peace, a solitude, a feeling of being sealed by His love. I've sought after Jesus for what seems like an eternity which was actually only 3 years, to be honest. I'm not talking about the "I believe in God" kinda relationship. I'm talking about the desperation "I'm not stopping til I find You" kinda stuff. I remember searching & seeking for truth. Not just any truth but the actual TRUTH I had known was found only in God. As I sought & committed to finding Him I discovered what being known by Him truly meant. I discovered what it meant to lay down everything to gain His heart, His love, and His eyes for the lost. It began to stir me inside when I read scriptures like 1 Corinthians 8:3 "But the man who loves God is known by God" but what did that really mean? So I dug deeper only to find more scriptures that backed it up. Questions began to spring up inside, what was the proof of my love to Him?…I stumbled upon it in soon after in John 14:15 when He said "If you love me, you will obey what I command." This was getting pretty serious! I immediately realized that loving God wasn't at all what the world defined love as. His love had order & it had purpose. He lay out His love in His commands. Not to keep me bound but to protect me & give me true freedom. It was in choosing to take on what His Word(the scriptures) that I began to see strides towards a life lived for Him. It was NOT overnight, I am still in constant learning. I'm reminded that it is stagnant water that poisons  & in order for our lives to not be poisoned by the world we have to commit to becoming immersed in the Word. It was then and only then that we will began to understand the scripture about "The word being living & active…sharper than any two-edged sword(Hebrews 4:12) I'm calling for all women to join me, to find out who they are in Christ, to be ALL He destined for us to be, to find your God-given purpose. I pray that a mass of women answer the call & begin to fight for peace in their homes & for us all to realize the powerful role we have been given as women. God needs for us all to claim our femininity to nurture, to honor and to love our families. To understand that the order God created & calls us to is a beautiful thing. That it is an act of worship to respect & honor our husbands, to work as unto the Lord at our jobs and to invest in the lives of our children by living a life that exemplifies who God is so that our children know the truth too. Come join me in this journey! Let's be the spark that ignites a fire nation wide in the heart of women! #coffeeandjesus…it's not just a phrase it's what unites us as women besides, I know who you are…you're a daughter of the King…the question is, do you know that & understand the magnitude of that?!
