Godly Marriages and Courtships Still Exist

Godly courtships and marriages can and still do exist. Prior to the viral proposal and marriage that is #foreverduncan on the web there were mostly reports of celebrity divorces. The viral video that launched over the weekend showed the bride Sherrell and Alfred Duncan rejoicing and giving praise to God at the ceremony.

In the social climate we live in, in the U.S.A #ForeverDuncan was refreshing to see.

It was easy to see who they honored in that relationship, and how that same honor could be turned around and reflected toward each other.

It's true that life is not a fairy tale and being in relationships aren't always easy but #foreverduncan is a glorious example of what can happen when we put God first in every area of our lives. especially love.

There are still Godly couples in America that can function with true love and unity and I believe God is creating even more of them. They will become more prevalent despite what reports say and what most media shows.

It is my prayer that God continue to bless them with wisdom, discernment, and prosperity.

He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord. ~ Proverbs 18:12

What are your thoughts on marriage on courtship? How did you feel when you first saw the video? Leave a comment below.

New Beginnings Aren't So Bad

For real though. Who actually likes starting over. Can anyone actually, honestly say they love beginning a new from scratch.  
"New Beginnings Aren't So Bad" by Rowzina Middleton

I mean it's an interesting process. Having to take the time to be deprogrammed. Breaking mental habits, you probably did not know you even had. Really evaluating your departure from the past and understanding God having a greater plan for you. 
But seriously though. Starting over for me has not been easy. I have been accustomed to certain surroundings for so long, it is difficult not to compare. Yet in comparing I am able to see the negative in my past and the positive in my present. I have the opportunity to be debugged of all toxic emotions from the past as well as the "stinkin' thinkin'" that was associated with it. It's been about finding out who I really am. Who I am in Christ.  As well as going after all things I have ever desired in Christ. I no longer have to worry about anybody blocking me or trying to stop the anointing that they see. My ideas will no longer get knocked down by jealous people. My creativity will no longer be bashed because it's not understood. 
Starting over can have its perks. You may just meet someone new. Of you'll learn something about yourself that you'll actually love. You might stumble upon...


Before All Else Fails...Check Your Sync Level

By: April D, Byrd

Where there is lack of vision, the people perish. –Proverbs 29:18. You might be perishing tired, bitter, and frustrated with life for nothing else but lack of vision right now. I know because it happens. Get the vision from God by spending time in prayer and meditation. Take time to center yourself. 

I was just telling a friend on the phone that being “in synch” with God is better than seeking balance. We have so much that we deal with on a daily basis, like work, school, kids, relationships, etc. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to keep it all in line properly. However, if you’re in synch with God, it’s not a juggling act you have to perform. You can do a lot more. Being directed is much more effective than trying to handle it alone. Balance is not the key, synch is. When your spirit is in synch discipline will come naturally.

We know what we need to do. Sometimes we just don’t do it. Get in line and get in love with God. This happens by spending just a little bit of time in the presence. Make it a priority.
Society gives us so much on our plate to juggle and handle. And everyone wants to know the answer to the billion-dollar question. Can you have it all…Career and Family happiness? Well yes. I believe you can. The key is not balance, the key is synchronicity.

There is no pressure in synch. Scripture also says: “For my yoke is easy, and my burden it light.” When your job or calling has you working like cattle and you have 50,000 other things to do. Remember the words: “Come to me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” “Learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.” –Matthew 11: 28-30

Get to know God, that's where you find your joy in the storm and the ability to walk on water, where you make the impossible possible. May there be peace, love, and sync added to your life. “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Romans 15:5-6
