Recognize Game Ladies!!!

angry couple

(Real Talk) Ladies, do you really know your worth? Do you recognize the red flags? If you are not getting what you need, then it’s time to say BYE BYE!!! Don’t try to force a relationship to work! If he is a liar, only sees you at night (at your place), you can only call at certain times, he hasn’t introduced you to his close friends and family and he’s asking for money then the answer is in your face. You are “worth more than jewels” so why would you settle for that “creepin” mentality! Learn to cut your loses. A manipulative man can spot a vulnerable woman a mile away. Get your act together and kick that loser to the curb!!!!

How Did You Do It?

RSWY CEO Gwen OwensPeople ask me all the time, “how did you overcome adversity?” I DECIDED that I wanted more out of life and I was through feeling sorry for myself. It was that simple. The process was sometimes difficult but I would not trade the life God has given me. I learned to take one minute at a time and embrace me. I know what it is like to be broken; but, I know what joy and being whole feels like,too. I have peace even when things are off course because I know there is someone much greater than me. He made promises and I can count on Him to keep them. He doesn’t lie and he is merciful and kind. He never said it would be easy but he promised to comfort and keep me. I believe you know Him, too! Just step out on faith and believe.

Yes I Can!

Women, by nature, are resilient but there are some who just can’t seem to find their way. Well, I am here to tell you that there is nothing too hard once you make a decision to get out of your rut! Stand up for what you believe in and don’t waiver in your faith. Trials come to make us strong and always know that you are NEVER alone. “Take up your bed and walk!”

God Takes Care of His Own

When I looked out of the window this morning, I saw four deer crossing the street headed towards a little creek to drink water. I was reminded that they are one of God‘s creatures whom He provides for everyday, just like you and me. We have nothing to worry about because God takes care of His own.

Psalms 42:1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants after you,God. (World English Bible)

What a powerful revelation this morning!!!
