Boaz for me

One of the most enduring stories about virtue, love, and compassion is told in the Old Testament from the Book of Ruth. The love that Boaz had for Ruth could not compare to the love of Romeo and Juliet in my opinion. It teaches what women should look for in a man if she is looking for a lasting relationship. The qualities of a man should not be based on the type of car he drives, his tax bracket or an expensive watch he owns. He qualities should center around his character, integrity, how he see’s the woman he wants to be with, and a connection he has with the Creator. In other words these are the qualities that I look for. But these were some of the many qualities that Boaz possessed.

He is kind, with love

He reads scriptures with tenacity

He serves the Creator for he knows He bled for all humankind

He is moved by her smile and gentle spirit

He appreciate how diligent she is over the work she does everyday

He is intrigued by the intensity in her eyes when she speaks

He is aware of how men may look at her, but he see’s more then they will ever know

He give her all the time she needs. He knows the virtue of her and it is a glory that he awaits

He tells her the truth.  Not what she wants to hear, but what she needs to hear

He would never deceive her to make her feel inadaquate

He knows that having her heart one day is a victory is more grand than any jewel

He loves that her friends love that she is around

Yet she is beautiful on the outside, her beauty is from within

There could never be no flower more delicate than she

Do you know your self worth?

Are you living to your full potential or are you settling for all that you have now? Those dreams that you had when you were a kid, have you accomplished them or was it all wishful thinking? Or did you just let the wrong person tell you that you can’t do something and you just let all of that stay in your mind? Don’t you know what you are capable of doing? Your capable of being the best there is out there. Somewhere in life, you let life get in your way. You let doubt take over and you stop believing. So you made a mistake and you haven’t begun to learn from it. Well you can learn from your mistake and you will. I have always believed that we were born to make mistakes. But it’s what we learn from those mistakes is how we move past from them. When was the last time someone told you that you were special and there is no one else quite like you? Well I’m here to tell you that you are special.  Without that one glowing star you would have not been born. Reason why you may have been told that you can do something is because the person telling you wants to help push in the direction that they know you can go to. Or it could be they could simply be miserable with their own outcome in life and was told the same thing and wants to pass it on to somebody else. Whatever the reason is don’t feel for one second that you can not achieve something that you have high aspirations for. Once you have a dream of great fate that dreams belongs to you. No one has the power to take it way from you or deny it from you. You can go through life and just live just to be living. Or you have the choice to go through life and live the life that you want to live. Having your own dreams come true. Know that you are worth more than a shiny piece of jewelry. You were given the greatest gift of all.

Finding your light

        Right now the world is going through one to many changes.  Sad to say that millions of people across the country are counting on a check from the man. At the rate of the way things are going; it can be anyone’s call. It’s easy to just throw your hands up and say “I’m done, I’m tired of doing this everyday”.  I hate to say it but there are a lot of people that would love to see everyday people crumble, starve, steal, beg for their basic necessities in life.  Yet still I believe in a dream that will remain all mines. I ask you that are reading this today to also stand strong on your dreams. Encourage those in your surroundings to never give up on your dreams.  That is the light that you can carry to be the best that you can be.  No one knows what’s in your heart but yours truly.

      This will be part of a 4 part series on ways that can be helpful on finding your light.

On Faith

Today is another day. A day to breathe, to love and to be thankful for.  I look up to the sky and know my worth. I am not binded to the ones that feels less of me.  He holds my heart in His hands.  That is the most purest love of all.  Nothing tainted just love that will always be pure.  I will continue to sing a song of praise and glory.  For He reigns as King of all Hearts.
