Wow! I had such a lovely time with the nicest group of beautiful, intelligent, and graceful women of God last weekend in California! For those that I met and was able to speak with one on one...Thank you! Thank you for sharing your insight and wisdom with all of us and being transparent as you walked humbly before the Lord our God. I cannot wait to do it again! :) And the worship! God never ceases to amaze me when it comes to His Faithfulness!! These words I type cannot do Him justice. Excuse me while I shout..."GLORY!"
As this is Shazzi's (short, short) Blog, I will jump right to the point and say: "Down with the unspoken manipulation of spiritual quid pro quo." Romans tells us own no man nothing but to love him- emotional pulls and rhetoric that gets you to buy in to a concept, or do a certain thing, is not sustainable and only serves to breed resentment, confusion, and frustration.
There is nothing so freeing as an organic relationship that is life giving without manipulation. God has told us what is required in Micah and I encourage all to believe what He said. :)
