Guest Post: Lesson Two On Love


I'm so glad to have my mom as a guest blogger again. I pray that her message on love will be a blessing to you guys and make a difference in your life.
                                                             ______________


Hi, my name is Ginny and I am going to be sharing lesson 2 on love.  Before I do, I want to tell you a little about myself.  I am a mother of three great children and grandmother of two wonderful young people.  One of my children is the young lady that started this site. Her name is Shanay and my oldest daughter.  She has such a heart to help others and loves to hear about the victories in your lives.  She also prays for you as well.

One of my favorite scriptures in the Bible is Romans 8:28…I am not going to type it out because I want you all to look it up!  My heart’s desire is to make a difference in the lives of others, especially women, young and older.
                                                            



The last lesson was about the love of God, and today’s lesson is about loving ourselves.  The two commandments that Jesus left were for us to love God and to love others as we love ourselves.  In order to truly love someone else, you first have to love yourself.  It is impossible to give away something that we do not possess.
The love I am talking about is not self-centered or perverted.  We are to receive the love that God has given us and by doing so, we will then realize that we are valuable and worth being respected. We must first respect ourselves before we can respect anyone else.

Young men and women really need to understand that they need to love themselves so they will not be fooled by false love from other individuals.  If someone tells you that they love you, but then request things of you that are against what you have been taught or is against the word of God, then you need to let that person know, that true love is not conditional. Also let them know that you care enough about yourself that you are willing to wait for the true love that God has for you.  Don’t be duped by the “if you love me you will”… let them know “if you love me you will wait”.

I used to smoke and drink, neither which are good for you.  I thank God for the day when He opened my eyes to quit both.  I did not do either of those things to impress anyone, but I did stop because I know I was worth more than putting poison into my body on a daily basis. Smoking and drinking will not keep you out of Heaven, but it could get you there sooner than you want to go!!!

We are special in the eyes of God and because we are, we need to see ourselves that way.  Don’t look at the things you can’t do, rejoice in the things you can.  We can always learn to do better in areas that are not our greatest right now.  One of the things I say on a daily basis is that: I will never give up, never give out and never give in.  When I say that, I am talking about all the things that try to stop me from enjoying and succeeding in the life God has planned for my life.


Never, and I mean never, allow someone else to define who you are.  If someone says something negative about you, throw it out.  Even if someone praises you, say thank you and continue on.   Give God the glory for the things He is doing in your life, but don’t get a big head because you do something great.  Remember that with God we can do all things, and without Him, we can do nothing. The gifts that God gave you, use them to help others and to give honor to God, but don’t toot your own horn.

I am asking each of you to read 1 Corinthians 13 every day for one month.  Get it into your heart and begin to live it.  Also read Mark 12:30-31, they are the two greatest commandments that Jesus left for us to abide by.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139: 14

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
