Your Are More Precious than Jewels... Do Not Be Robbed of Your Inheritance
Sometimes we as young women, do not see the road that is ahead of us. We think in our mind and heart, that we do want our lives to turn out rosy and full of potential. But sadly, life is not like our dreams and hopes. In a world that is full of sin, there will be hardship and trials that so easily beset us. We live in a society of me first, my way or the high way.
We should surrender our lives totally over to God, after all he does have our best interest at heart, he also knows our future. No better way than to trust in him and follow his path for you. Feeling left out, or hurt and destroyed by friends or family, there is one that will never leave you nor forsake you, that is Jesus Christ. He came that we may have life more abundantly. His death was for our hope and future. Turn your eyes upon Jesus, let him take you by the hand and lead you to where he knows you will blossom once planted.

Young Women Living for Jesus It is a trying time we live in, working and raising a family. As a young woman living for Jesus, you face challenges every day, from acceptance to keeping up with school and holding a job. Our current world has succumbed to living a lifestyle, that anything goes. God wants us to set the example and follow him. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
Psalm 103:17-18 KJV His mercy endures forever, loving him and living for him, gives us direct access to him. We as young women want to be strong and popular. But in saying this, what is the goal that we as women of God, are we setting a standard to live for him, or to live for others by conforming to their way of living. Our genuine walk with God speaks volumes, a living testament of God and his goodness to others. How we represent ourselves will grow a garden of hope and trust in Jesus, or we may have thorns and thistles and briers that trap all the good and kill what we represent about Christ.
People will recognize you for who you are, and how you live. Just by the people, you hang out with, the places you visit, and by the words of your own communication that proceed from your heart.

So as we go through our walk or journey in life, keep in step with Jesus, and his word and pray for guidance in all things.
