A Builder of Souls or A Downer of Souls?

20170403_082841I snapped this random pic yesterday before I left my driveway for work. At the time it was just another random pic but this morning as I see it in my gallery I keep hearing the words “by this hand a woman blesses many, and with the same hand can tear down many”. Wow! That is quite a statement Lord. So then I go to His word and in Proverbs 14:1 the words are clear “The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish woman tears hers down”.

Ladies, meditate on this scripture today. And honestly answer to yourself…which one have you been or are you? I have been both! The foolish one that tore down her husband with her tongue-oh the disrespectful, sarcastic, smart I-am-right-all-the-time responses; the foolish one that had no patience when it came to her child snapping left and right; the foolish one that had no compassion, mercy and grace for folks who made mistakes, acted ‘stupidly’ or just plain naïve. But then something happened in my self discovery to building a closer relationship with God. He unearthed my imperfections, forgave me, cleansed me, made me whole and loved me which helped me love myself first, and then pour that love to others.

I’m not perfect, I have my moments but I have learned self-control, discipline, and something called grace. Friend, how do you see your hands? A builder of souls or a downer of souls? I hope you learn to be the builder… 💖 ~Kate
