I Love Being a Woman

Lately, I have been speaking with other single women and finding out their views on relationships. They are exploring some of the reasons why they enjoy being women. There have also been discussions on why men are searching  for certain types of  qualities in a woman.  We have discussed that it’s not just about a pretty face or body anymore. It’s about the woman who loves being a woman and possessing the qualities that keep a man in her presence and coming back for more.

I absolutely love being a woman. The essence of having influence, power, intelligence, sexiness,  sensuality, soft-spokeness, tenderness, kindness, humility, and the ability to love deeply makes it all the more magnificent to be a wonderful, awesome and virtuous woman. It is my nature to serve and I totally believe in serving a husband intensely and fully. Many of my friends have problems in that area. They are not willing to humble themselves to serve a husband. They feel that it is demeaning or degrading. But what they don’t know is that it can prove to be a powerful tool in strengthening the relationship. I believe that it may be rare in this day to find a powerful, successful, intelligent and independent woman who is willing to serve her husband in humility. These qualities are very attractive to men but so very hard to find in a woman.

It feels so wonderful  to know that I can be happy living a single life or I can be happy living a married life. Neither one defines who I am.  Just being myself is what people love so much about me and being a woman has made my life extra special. My mother raised me to be a powerful, intelligent, spiritual and loving woman. Being sexy, sensual,  beautiful, gorgeous and all those other things comes from being disciplined in lifestyle, eating habits, weight training, and taking special care of the body as well as the soul and spirit through the word of God. These qualities are also very attractive to men.

It is a blessing to be a woman and it is very important to be the right type of woman. I will continue to enjoy my life, be myself, continue to love deeply and serve whole heartedly. I will continue to embrace my femininity of being the best woman that I can be. If you are a woman, be the best that you can be and enjoy the God-given gift to nurture, love, carry life and embrace the power that comes with it.

I love being a woman.

Be Free to be Yourself

Are you free to be yourself? Do you hesitate before saying what you really want to say in fear that someone may not like you afterward? How much of your life do you spend trying to please others? How hard do you have to work to stay in the “graces and favor” of other individuals because you are afraid that they won’t provide you with privileges anymore? It took me years to come to the place in my life that I needed to live my life for me. I no longer care what people think of me. I no longer take their advice to heart when it doesn’t work for me. It is extremely liberating to wake up everyday and realize that my life is in God’s hands and that I am free to be Patrice.  Be who you are. Let God heal you. Let God bless you. Let God show you who you are and walk proudly in it.

Instruction

“Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.” Proverbs 4:13

Is it not amazing that instruction is your life? Wisdom encompasses instruction. What we need to understand is that living a life without discipline causes destruction. But living a life of wisdom and instruction brings about abundant life.

A Father is Available

The Late Pastor Arthur Lee Tankard

Today I reflect on thoughts of my father.  The Late Pastor Arthur Lee Tankard is on my mind and memories are flooding my thought processes. My dad seemed to live ahead of his time. Many people did not understand his way of thinking and he seemed to constantly have ideas for his visionary conquests. But what I most admired about my dad was his constant and persistent search for the truth. He studied world issues, politics, the book of Revelation in the Bible and many other resources that permeated in the realm of the spiritual and physical world. Dad was what some would call an “End Time Prophet”. He could explain the mysteries in Revelation and connect them to world events with uncanny spiritual analysis and insight.

However, I thank God for wonderful parents and a father that was involved in my life every day.  In the book of Proverbs there is a scripture that says to train up a child in the way that they should go and when they are older they will not depart.  My parents trained me well. The teachings of the word are in my heart. Even though I have done some things that were not pleasing to my parents or God, the word of God did not depart from my heart.

Whether we have a good relationship with our father or not, we must remember that our heavenly father is available to care for and love us. His comfort, provision and wisdom supersede any and all fatherly influences.  Since my own earthly father is gone, I am basking in the love and comfort of my heavenly father. No one has to be without a father ever. We just need to accept The  Great and Heavenly Father and allow him to be a father to us.

Just for Now

“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 NIV

In life it may seem that God has put more on you than you can bear, but trust in the word when it says the pain and the trials are only temporary. The weeping is just for now, but joy comes in the morning. This may take on a metaphorical meaning, but spending time with the Lord in the morning really does bring joy. I refuse to put my morning in other people’s hands. Everyday is the Lord’s, so start each morning reading the word and just to say “Thank You, I know this day is a gift from You.”

Enjoy each day.
