How is Your Stewardship?

Moreover, it is [essentially] required of stewards that a man should be found faithful [proving himself worthy of trust]. I Corinthians 4:2 (Amplified Bible)

Now, a person who is put in charge as a manager must be faithful.
I Corinthians 4:2 (Living Translation)

The definition of a steward is a person who manages another's property or financial affairs; one who administers anything as the agent of another or others. Did you know that God owns everything we have, and He has made us stewards over everything He has given to us, and yes, that includes MONEY!! If you don't believe me let's go to the word about it: Psalm 24:1 tells us "the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to Him. (Living Translation)

Sounds to me like "God OWNS everything"!! So because the earth and everything in it belongs to the Lord, we are mere stewards or caretakers over His stuff. So shouldn't we be committed to the proper management of what He has entrusted to us? Can God trust you with His money?

One of the reasons it's so hard for people to be good stewards over God's money is because, people want to be in control. They want to control their money and they don't want God to have anything to do with it. But let them run out of that same money and their begging God for a financial miracle.

Here are a couple of things God notices when looking for a good steward:
  • Is that person Faithful?
  • Does that person understand how money is supposed to work?
  • Is that person properly managing their time, abilities, and money?
  • Is that person a giver, or do they hoard all of the money they receive?
  • Does that person spend every single dollar that comes into their hands, or do they make wise decisions with that dollar?

Those were just a few questions I believe God asks Himself as it relates to looking for a good steward; I'm just wondering what His answers would be when He's looking at us? So, again I ask you How is Your Stewardship??

I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

My Unusual Life follower wrote this:

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
