Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.”
There is truly no greater joy than knowing that you are living a life pleasing to God. Obedience is never easy when your Will is constantly competing with His Will. The sooner you are able to let go and give it all over, the sooner you will begin to see the rewards of your faithfulness. It’s a daily decision.

Proverbs 31:29-31 ~ “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
I would like to thank my fellow Bold & Fab sister Jocelyn (Indigo) for her words in her last post. It was her words that sparked the idea for what you are reading today. She wrote, “The prettiest face on earth is but an empty hole on your neck w/o the ability and willingness to have a HEART.”
