Get To Building Ladies

Happy New Year!!!!!

I haven't been on the blog for the new year so I wanted to get on it today.

Today is for the ladies so guys pass this post onto the women in your lives.

Ladies it is time for us to become contractors!  Building contractors!  Specifically wisdom building contractors!

Proverbs 14:1 says, "A wise woman builds her house,  but with her own hand the foolish one tears hers downs."

Ladies if  we are not building our houses then what are we doing?

I am teaching on this tonight in Bible study and I am so excited because God has had this on my heart and has been dealing with me on this subject for sometime.

When you think of a contractor you think of tools.  So picture this.

Hammer - hammers nails in but turn it around and it pulls the nails out.
Screw Driver - used to tighten screws if turned to the right but loosens them if turned to the left.
Pliers - tightens or loosens
Wire Cutters - cut wires

I think you get the picture.  How are we using our tools ladies?
Our tongue is like a hammer.  It can put people together or pull them apart.
The screw driver is our daily life.  Where are we going lefty loosey when we need to go righty tighty.
Our hands are like pliers.  What or who are we holding onto.
How many of us need wire cutters to cut the strings the have us tied down mentally, emotionally and even spiritually?  Did you just say Amen?

Listen this life is not a dress rehearsal.  It is the once chance we have to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

It is time to build our houses ladies!  So grab your tool belt and hard hat and let's get to it!!!

Much Love,
