I Am a "Kept Woman!"
You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind, but GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3) “The steadfast of mind Thou wilt keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in Thee”
There were times when I thought I could go on no longer, but the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15) “And behold, I am with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong, but the LORD kept my mouth shut. (Ps. 39:1) “I said, ‘I will guard my ways, that I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle, while the wicked are in my presence.’
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough, but GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34) This is Jesus’ sermon on the Mount. V. 33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.”
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up. (I Pet. 5:7) “casting all your anxiety upon Him, because HE cares for you.”
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (Matt. 11:28-30) “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me! I'm blessed to be 'kept!'
Are you a 'kept' woman? I'm "kept" by the Love and Grace of God!
I am indeed a 'kept' woman and praise God for it!
One of my very most inspiring favorites and thank God that He watches out, takes care of and "keeps" us, HIS beloved children!!
