Speaking the Word

Last week, I talked about studying the Bible. This week, we're going a little further. I believe all of us need to be reminded of this one. Unfortunately, we can get so caught up in our daily to-do-lists that we forget when a pop quiz, test, or trial comes our way, we have to be ready to conquer it! However, if we’re not trained by having our reservoir of Scriptures at hand, then it will be pretty hard to win. So that’s [...]

Your Thoughts This Week

For starters, I actually want to know your thoughts this week on topics that you would like to learn more about. I’m going to be working on fresh new blog posts for you, and I want to hear from my readers on what you actually need. I’ll give you a few topics to start with, but I’d also like to know your thoughts as well. Here are a few sample topics… 1.) Conquering Complaining 2.) How to Know Your Calling 3.) [...]

The Thing About Perfectionism

After reading the title, would you say that you’re a perfectionist or do you know someone who has signs of being one? If you are a perfectionist, what are some areas in your life where you feel things need to be just right? Is it being the perfect wife, mother, or friend? How about being the perfect employee, boss, or leader? Do you feel like your gifts and talents need to flow perfectly when you minister or perform? Let’s talk about [...]

How to Adjust the Attitude QUICKLY

Okay, this is going to be a crash course - through one post. So get ready, because my hope and prayer is that by the end of reading this, you will know exactly what to do when you need a quick attitude adjustment. Print this one out (for now and later reference), grab a highlighter, and be sure to purchase a pack of index cards for the Scriptures that you’re going to need to chew on, memorize, and apply when you [...]

A Heart of Contentment

Can I ask you a question? Do you want God’s best? I would think that it didn’t take long at all for you to answer that question. I mean, who wouldn’t want God’s best, right? Right. Yet, I’ve discovered over the years, that in order to receive God’s best it does entail…a sign of surrender with a heart of contentment. Many of us know that being content is not easy, especially when we have a desire for more. For example, there’s a desire for more [...]

Preparing For a Trial

What a way to title a post, right? I mean, who wants to prepare to go through hardships in life? Who wants to deal with that? I get it, sis. Nobody does – including me. But the truth is…we will go through trials in this life. We were never promised a flowerbed of ease on this earth. Instead, Jesus prepared us in advance (before He ascended into heaven) in John 16:33 saying, “…Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, [...]

Need Wisdom?

Where are you today? Are you working on a project or dealing with a particular issue where you need to know exactly what to do? Are you in need of direction or clear answers? If so, then I believe what you need is wisdom. The Lord has really been laying it upon my heart for some time now to write about “wisdom.” The reason being is because it’s so important to have it before we step out to do anything, really. It’s just that serious, [...]

The Influence of a Godly Woman

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Have you ever thought about how important you are to those around you as a Christian woman? Because you are! God chose you, adopted you into the faith, and created you to be His child – His precious daughter. He also created and called you to be a beacon of light to a dying world for Him and to be a godly influence and impact to those He has entrusted to you in your lifespan. In a nutshell, [...]

In a Battle?

Are you in a battle, sis? What's going on? I want to tell you that the struggle is real! I know. But guess what? The Bible tells us that our fellow Christian brothers and sisters are going through the same struggles all around the world. First Peter 5:8-9 says, "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian [...]

Working Together in the Body of Christ

I want to start this post by asking you a question. Do you know your place in the body of Christ? Meaning, where you’re called to serve? If your answer is no, then I urge you to pray and ask God to show you where to serve, who to serve, and how to serve well. And if you know your place, then I’ll ask you this. Are you flowing in it or are you stagnated? These are essential questions for today’s time, because Jesus is [...]
