"A Diva's Steps"

Psalm 37:23, "The steps of a good (WO)MAN are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in her way."

Many of us have gone through the fire, but just as God declared, we have come out without a scent of smoke!! I encourage you in the New   Year to allow God to order each and every step you make and take. The Word tells us "steps" not walk, meaning life is a process and we can't speed the process of God. Some things have to be WALKED and not TALKED. What I love about God is that He is a Man of Order and He has equipped us to be Women of Protocol.  The joy in allowing God to direct our steps is the fact that man can't misguide our walk. A person who is misguided can't direct a woman! As you walk into 2013, know that as you walk, God is moving ahead of you to delight in every step you tread:) Walk the Word and let the Word work your Walk! Be blessed and Encouraged:)

"I Still Have Joy"

"Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold." Proverbs 3:13-14

Divas, let's take time to review and reflect on the Year 2012 and all the lessons and blessings we have received. Life is an evolving journey that takes us along paths that we often are unprepared for. As you think back over this year, examine what you did wrong, but more importantly what you did righteously. What I know for sure, no matter what we go and grow through, there is joy in the underlining. If you hadn't lost the friend, you would have never known you had a Friend in Jesus. If you hadn't lost the job, you would have never known that God would supply all of your needs according to His riches and glory. If you hadn't gotten sick, you would have never known that by His stripes you would be healed! No matter what you have experienced in life, be joyful and understand that the wisdom you attained is valuable and the understanding you received is invaluable. Be blessed and encouraged in the Lord

"Blessed and Highly Fashionable."

Luke 1:28, "And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you;blessed are you among women!"

Divas, as we prepare to enter 2013, you have got to know that you are blessed and with that comes a standard of excellency! You can't walk, talk, nor look like the people around you. No matter if you are headed to work, worship, or the water park, dress beyond your now because you don't know who nor whom God will send along your path to bless you later. Don't expect for others to tell you how dynamic you are, receive it into your heart as Mary did when the angel came to her. You have every right to rejoice as a highly favored daughter of the Most High God! You have been called to a higher standard and that comes with having higher standards. Rejoice Diva, what God sets apart has a part and purpose that only you can fulfill! Be blessed and encouraged!
