O.M.G Not Lil Miley Cyrus Too?! (Yes, Lil Miley Too)

Sunday night and Monday when I was online, I kept seeing post and trends of “Miley Cyrus VMAs performance”. At first I ignored it thinking okay who cares what she did, but eventually curiosity got the best of me. I looked into it briefly to see what the heck all the fuss was. I read how she “Crossed the line” and became “Skank of the year”. I finally found the video of the performance and I must say she looked a mess and I do not think I will look at a foam finger the same.
After watching it, my only question was does she realize how stupid she looks? I guess that’s a stupid question to ask. If she had eyes to see, she would see that she looks insane. I thought the girl was on some type of drug. She is truly deceived to think that she did an amazing performance.
As I was watching the video and reading a couple of articles about it, I read the comments (I love to read comments :)) Everyone was saying, how crazy she looks, “O.M.G not Miley”, “My children watched her on Disney!”, “What happened to her?”
Some of these comments were from Christians and I ask the Christians. Why are we so shock that it’s Miley Cyrus? Why not Miley Cyrus? Who is she? You’re in shock because she was on Disney a supposedly Children’s channel. Since when Disney glorified Christ? Since when did Miley ever lift up the name Christ? I have not heard anywhere, anytime that Miley was brought up with Godly parents in a godly household and taught godly ways. Why were you ever allowing your children to watch her show or anything on Disney in the first place? I see no difference between her and Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and anyone else out there that is shaking their butt around and singing songs that makes absolutely no sense. Miley Cyrus is doing what she is supposed to be doing because she is under the devil’s control.
I also seen a picture of Will Smith’s family watching the performance. I guess they were supposed to be in shock. Well Will, Willow is on the same path if she don’t come to Jesus and get out of Hollywood. I don’t see any difference between the two. Willow is already wild looking and has no parental guidance.
I look at fellow followers of Christ who lift up these lil celebrities like they are so cute and allow their children to watch them and sing their songs. When will you realize it’s all in the enemy’s plan? He gets these celebrity kids while they are young and having us thinking they are innocent and cute and it’s okay to watch their show, it’s okay to sing their song. A little compromise here and there and then they grow up with your child’s loyalty and become grown and the true intentions surface and you are slapped in the face. You should be slapped in the face for following that. This is exactly what the enemy wants. He want you, your children and your family. He has these kids start off young so we can grow up with them and accept their ungodliness little by little. I hope everyone now sees this is the norm. Miley isn’t the first to go buck wild and she won’t be the last. Notice how they keep saying things like, “She is shedding her Disney image”,  “She’s all grown up” They say this about every young actor, actress, singer when they grow up and start acting “sexy”. Hearing she’s all grown up sends the message that this is what grown ups do when they are grown. Then you wonder why your child wants to do this and behave that way. Acting like that does not make you a grown up. It makes you a puppet for the enemy. Our children are in danger. Go before God and ask Him on how to get your children’s hearts to focus on Christ and not this garbage that is out here. Miley and all these other little children are being used to get your children to follow this crazy worldly system.

Reading Time With Little One ( The Importance of Psalms)

I know I stated a couple of post back the importance of reading to our little ones in the womb. Over the past couple of months, I have been reading to my son the book of Psalm. Throughout this time, I have questioned should I really be focused on Psalms. Naturally, I thought of reading Proverbs, instilling wisdom. I plan to read the book to him, but I really wanted to start in Psalms without totally understanding why. The only reason I had, was to instill a mind of praise and worship in his heart. To hear the praises of God continually going up would give him the mindset to praise Him in all situations. To be bold and his praise and worship to God. I know this hasn’t been one of my strongest traits, so I wanted to make sure it is in my children spirit before they come out the womb.
As I read Ps. 46 this morning, the first couple of verses caught my attention. Verse 1: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Verse 2: Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea…” It goes on to verse three and so on. As I continued to read I was encouraged with verses 7, 10-11. It’s not like I never heard these verses before, but it is always encouraging to read them once more. As I read and explained the verses to my baby’s spirit, it started to occur to me another reason I needed to read the Psalms to him.
I have been studying Arthur Burk’s c.d. ‘Ministering to Babies in the Womb‘ (great material by the way :)), when Arthur was explaining the importance of building a joy base for the child. It’s al tool for nurturing our babies. It’s the baseline emotion for us humans, our foundation. You want a huge joy base for your child. It’s important since the joy of the Lord is our strength. We will experience other emotions-pain, hurt, etc, but how long will it take to return to joy?
This all flooded my mind and it came to me that David was a great example of this. He experienced great pain, disappointment and hurt, even wondered if God heard his cries, but if you ever continue to read the whole chapter, he always returns to a state of praise and joy, knowing that yes, my God has heard me, He has rescued me, He is awesome and wonderful! He knew how to return to that joy base!
I realized as I express my excitement to my son of his coming and read the Psalms of David’s great example and the other writers who wrote the book, I am creating a huge joy base for him! That bring joy to my heart as a mother that I am on the right track. I am reading what He needs at this time. With everything going on in our world, it is ever so important to develop that joy of the Lord into our children so that they may have strength to continue in this race.

Believing For New Beginnings!!

I was just finishing up in my reading and prayer time, when I had said to myself that today is August 1. August being the 8th month, I will believe for “New Beginnings”. After hearing myself speak that, something went through my spirit. I had immediately caught it and started to pray and speak over our situation. I thanked Him for the things He had completed in our lives last month. I also spoke that we will not continue on the path of despair, but will speak and believe for a new beginning in our lives. As I was praying and speaking forth these things I heard the scripture … old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). I receive that newness this month for my family. I know it is so. I do not have to come into this month stress about anything. I can stand on God’s Word knowing if I speak forth these things and believe, it will come  to pass (Mark 11:23-25). I can have confidence in this because He wants us to come into our destiny!
I wanted to share this with anyone who is stepping into this month trying to figure out how you are going to make it. Don’t try to figure it out, just start receiving the newness God has for you!
There was an article I read a while back in ‘The Word of Faith’ magazine. At the end it had a little section called ‘Speak Positive Words’. It had a small prayer that I wanted to share.

“Father, You said in Your Word that You would never leave me or forsake me. You promised to always be with me. I take Your hand by faith (here I insert what I am believing for and literally take out my hand as to hold His) and I expect You to lead me to victory!”

I found this to be helpful and encouraging. Saying this prayer reminds me that our Father will not forsake us. He will not put on us no more than we can bear. We have to believe He loves us enough to provide. We need to remember that. Let’s in Great Expectations believe for newness this month!
