Watch What You are Saying – S2E8

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Between grade school and adulthood, most people have heard that saying. Well, according to the article, ‘The Scary Power of Negative Words,’ our words have power. For that reason alone, you should watch what you are saying.

So, since our words have power, do you ever think about the words you speak? Such as, how those words affect you and others around you. In fact, words can evoke emotional responses through what we speak, hear, and/or read. For example, most people know not to shout ‘bomb’ or ‘gun’ in a crowd. Without a doubt, panic and chaos would follow.

Words Matter for Life – S2-DE8

Lady Vs Weekly Devotional 

The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. 

Proverbs 12:18, NIV 

Devotional 

Have you ever noticed how someone’s words can either cut like a knife or be soothing to the soul? Words carry the power to affect lives for the good or for the bad.  

Without a doubt, our tongue has the power to be used as a weapon, or as a fountain of life. The wrong words spoken can be detrimental, but the right words spoken can bring health and healing. That is why words matter for life! 

So, how are you using the power that you’ve been given in YOUR tongue? We sometimes make the mistake of speaking words without giving thought to the magnitude of its force.

Spreading Hope to our Military – S2E7

Spreading hope to our military is an absolute must. For the majority of Americans, the reason is quite clear. The United States affords its citizens a luxury that many countries of the world do not. And that luxury is freedom. As citizens, we have freedom of religion, thought, and expression. In other words, we are free to live our lives as we so choose. 

The flag of the United States of America represents freedom for all American citizens. Our U.S. military protects our constitutional rights from all enemies. Spreading hope to the men and women of our armed forces is the least we can do.

Now, this is possible because of those who served and are serving in one of the five branches of our military. They put their lives on the line to protect our constitutional rights from all threats.

Of course, not just anyone is willing to put their life on the line for the rights of people they don’t know. For that reason alone, we should commend our servicemen and women.

Jesus Lights the Way -S2-DE7

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. 

Psalm 119:105, MSG 

Devotional 

We all need direction in life. Our steps can lead us to uncertain destinations that could either add to our lives or take away our lives. And let’s face it; we need our paths to be lit so that our destinations are sure.

Living in a dark world, full of wrong paths to take, requires that we have the right ‘GPS’. In other words, trying to make it through life without Jesus is like unto being lost in a foreign land without a knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately, you won’t know where you’re headed.

The Answer is on the Way – S2E6

Prayer–some people believe in the power of it, while others don’t. Are you one of the many people who incorporate prayer in your everyday life? If so, I’m sure there were times when it seemed as if the answer to your prayer was a resounding ‘no’. Because the answer didn’t happen when you wanted it to. In episode 2, Lady V and I discussed the different reasons for that happening. 

Lean not on your own understanding 

Now, the question for some people then becomes “Why pray if I don’t get the answer I want?” Unfortunately, that’s when the feeling of giving up on prayer and God takes hold. Especially, to those individuals in desperate situations.

You Are Not Forgotten -S2-DE6

Lady Vs Weekly Devotional 

The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time. 

Psalm 34:17-19, NLT  

Devotional 

Beloved, if you’ve found yourself crying out to God and wondering, “When will the answer come?” You are not alone. Many of us go through rough seasons and want God to speak, show up, and fix it—ASAP. 

I know; It may seem like God has forgotten about you and isn’t there; But, I’ve been sent to tell you that GOD IS THERE.

No matter what you are battling through, the LORD is with you. You are NOT alone.  God is Jehovah Shammah –The Lord who is THERE.And, you are not forgotten!

Love Yourself – Don’t Be a Placeholder – S2E5

Relationships are the connections one has with others. And although there are several types of relationships—romantic relationships can be tricky. In other words, those connections are hard enough as it is when both people are on the same page. But if they are not, it makes navigating through the issues of life that much more difficult. 

Do you feel loved, cherished, and respected?

And for that reason, loving yourself is so important. Because, when you truly love yourself, you are more aware of how that relationship affects you. For instance, how does the relationship make you feel? That is all the more crucial when planning a future with someone. 

If you are not receiving what you need and want from the relationship it’s time to examine that. In Ephesians 4:2 New Living Translation it speaks on how we should be with others, “Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.”

Waiting for God’s BEST – S2-DE5

Lady Vs Weekly Devotional 

Now the LORD God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—counterpart who is] suitable and complementary for him.”  

Genesis 2:18, AMP 

Devotional 

Our time is precious and we want to spend it wisely. I’m sure we can all agree; NO ONE wants to waste time in the wrong relationship.

That’s why God’s original plan, from the beginning, started with giving Adam the wife that was just right for him. So, God created Eve—God’s BEST for Adam. 

God had an original plan for Adam and Eve which would serve a purpose, to be a successful relationship. And, it is the same plan for all that desire to have God’s BEST—today.
