One of the things families most appreciate is good food. Mothers, who prepare delicious food are often affirmed by their husband and children. I got the most hugs from my kids when they smelled something baking in the oven when they got home from school. - Moments for Mothers by Kimberly Snider

Faith in Living a Pure Life

Hello moms and women out there! I'm priveleged to share a lesson, my very first topic here. Our Women Evangelist asked me to share this lesson in one of the Soul Sisters (Ministry of married to non-Christian husband, widow, separated and single mothers) devotional because she believed that I can share a lot about purity.

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. God is faithful: He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up against it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13.

1. Pure life lead by faith in God
How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart. Do not let me astray from your commands. - Psalm 119:9-10

Temptation can lead us to sin if we give in, but the word of God will lead us to overcome temptation if we have faith., If you have have faith you will understand "fear", from “fear” “conviction”, from “conviction” “seriousness”, from “seriousness” “expectation”.

I’m 10 yrs. separated now, time comes that I’m facing financial burden and loneliness, I miss having someone to be with. But I thought if I dis-obey God, i will not be happy and at peace. I also believed that God in stored a better life for me.

I just realized that having faith will help you understand the fear of God to overcome sin, to be committed when you have conviction, seriousness by living it out and expect that God is working out things for your life.

Psalm 128:1-2

How do keep your life pure? Are you lead by your faith in God or by your circumstances in life?

The realities of life are such that of marriages consist of hard times and good times.

2 Peter 2:18 -19 – Avoid such men.

Heb 13: 4-6 - Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer.

Do not repay evil with evil. We got to stay pure.

2. Pure life that lead others to God
Wives, in the same way be submissive with your husbands, so that if any of them do not believe the word, they maybe won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. -1 Pet 3: 1-2

Are we living a pure life that impact our neighbors? The way we think, the purity of our speech, and actions affects our children, our family and other people.

God can use us to carry out special mission for Him and to work out things for our husbands,our children and others.

Remember, the scripture says:
Watch your life life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do you will save both yourself and your hearers. – 1Tim 4:15

And, blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God. –Mat 5:8


- Remember God,s word and be faithful.

- Pray in all circumstances, remember if you’re tempted: PRAY! – Deut 4:7 “The Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to Him.” Prayer is an active response.

- Be open about your life, all temptations and impurities.
