Come out From Among Them (We Need Strong Marriages)

Part 1 (Come out from Among Them)

Dear Wives and Mothers, The Lord has been laying things on my heart lately..Its simple things..things you all probably know...the Lord is calling us out from among them..He is calling the broken hearted who have been living in suffering for years..He is calling you from your Wilderness and into His LIGHT..He calls you out alone..He is speaking to you alone..As i have said many times on here.."The virtuous women in Christiandom dont run in flocks..The true women of God always stand alone."Who can find a virtuous woman for her price is far above RUBIES" Yes maybe she goes to church...But she draws her strength from God alone..When Mary the Mother of Jesus got the message from the angel she didnt ask the deacons if they thot this was really God speaking..Mary knew it was the time for Jesus to come and that He wud come through a Virgin..Mary was a Mother of prayer and she was a visionary..she was expecting to hear news about Jesus..When the angel said that Mary was pregnant with the son of God ..she believed him..It sounded right to her..And Mary hid away and went to see her cousin Elisabeth..This world is so full of sin.The Lord can do miracles...but not in an atmosphere of sin and unbelief...And yes we love our Christian friends..But our spiritual strength comes only from the Lord..

Part 2  (Spiritual Wilderness)

Many of you wives and mothers live in the Spiritual Wilderness that i write about. You get a message from the Lord asking you to do something that you dont see anyone else doing at church..!!! But the Lord is asking you to come out from among them..and walk by faith and not by sight..You may be the only one in the world who wud listen and understand what God is saying to you..If you dont listen and do His will..who will..?? When i was 23 yrs old and deserted by my husband..the Lord told me to believe God for a miracle...The church i was going to said to me.."Connie take off your rose colored glasses and look at reality..Jim will never change..Dont you understand Connie..."Jim will never change..Well i heard from the Lord..sorry folks..I told my friends this...i said that the Lord had spoken to me...i know it was God who spoke to me..i said it was as if i heard it on the radio..it was plain to me..But it wasnt plain to anyone else..Then i met an older woman in the neighborhood..Her name was Clara..She was in her 50s and she had a husband who was also wayward..She said to me.."Connie you just keep doin what you are doin..and Jim will see he has a good woman..and he will come home some day and he will never leave again..And Clara and i were good friends for life...She died a few months ago..in her 90s...i miss her now..But yes she went to church..and loved it but she had a place in God that was just between her and the Lord..She hid away unto Him..And her husband came to the Lord thru her prayers....She was a witness for Christ all of her life..when she died her family saw that in her papers she had copied the whole Bible ..She wrote it all out in her own hand writing..This was how she studied it.

Part 3 (It only takes a Spark to get a Fire Going)

Oh where wud we be had God not called Abraham out ALONE..? or Sarah our Mother of Faith...? These saints were followers of Christ alone...They were visionaries who saw with the EYES of their understanding..We have spiritual eyes and physical eyes..When we see the angels and we feel the supernatural then we feel it thru our spirits...We at times as we pray we hear into the Heavenlies ..it sounds like singing and praying..and music of all kinds..Sometimes in my sleep i hear Heaven,,its so close ....it touches me...i often feel the presence of the cloud of witnesses..i hear them cheering me on..Clapping and singing ...".Its not that far Connie you can make it..Yur doin good..Just a few hrs left to go"!!! But i just wanted to tell you ladies this..That the Lord will be calling you...and when He does He will call you out alone into a place where He is Lord and King of ALL..And thats where the MIRACLES are..i just wanted to let you know..this is where the miracles are...I hear from so many of you who have read my testimony in Above Rubies.. You say to me that i have helped you,,,,,,Or that my testimony meant so much to you....Well arnt you glad i didnt listen to the trash in the street but i listened to the true voice of the living Christ..? You cud be that someone who will walk alone on that path of faith to save someone elses family..

Part 4  (Where are The Helpers?)

i see you girls with the eyes of my Understanding...i see you as helpers to our men in this age..Tv acts like if a man makes a mistake he is as good as dead.......But God sent them helpers..where is she ? She has everything she needs to speak to her husband about Jesus...But the world tells her she dont need that husband of hers,,she needs a new one.It doesnt matter what the Bible says about the almighty Maker hating divorce.Nope her husband was worse then anyone elses..So sad that the wives dont realise that God almighty had a great plan for her family..You will never find a man who will love you as a man who you have forgivin,,,,i have always heard that an animal that you rescue is different then one who you get when they are a puppy..or kitten."Chance" my cat was like that..we rescued him..And he was so different..then any other animals we had....He who has been forgiven much loves much..Oh yes i will forever have to listen to the sad stories about " i did it all right but my husband didnt change"..well if he is a child molester or whatever then even i wud probably divorce him too..But the truth is most of these men are not molesters...They are men who simply made a few too many mistakes..and rubbed all the wives relatives wrong....

Part 5  (So this is What sticks in My Craw)

These men that women are tossing out are our soldiers of tomorrow..The white straight guy is the one with the least rights..The married white guy with kids is really black balled...And these men on tv are the biggest idiot babies i ever did see...i mean they are bad enuf without being rejected by the opposite sex..Talk about castrating our men? ..But the Bible says we are to honor our husbands and reverence and praise them..Why because they are dying without us..They need us..They need us more then anyone else..And these men are Americans.. How can these men be treated like this..? With no thot most of the time to the wife and how she is making a girl out of him..Its the yr of the woman let me tell you..And she gets all the help and then brags about it and holds it over her husbands head..Lord help us and please forgive our country..And please let the good men arise..and take their place as heads of households...i cant hack Dr Phil and all that philosophy...

Part 6  (Marriage made for Heaven)

Ya know if all the wives who caught their husbands in adultery divorced them in our country ...then almost no one wud be married...God is calling some strong women front and center..Not the every day woman but some women who are real Ass Kickers..I mean these women are gonna hang on for dear life and not let go..It becomes no longer the worldly love that keeps them hangin on ..No..it becomes "Women with Gods own Heart"..Women out of the Spiritual Wilderness...You have been hangin on dear Heart..But your hanging onto your husband and not onto God...To be called to this place in God is such an honor..and its where you and your husband will both be set free...its a place of wilderness and fruitlessness...a Desert place...Its the Place you seek Gods heart ..Its a place to commit yourself to the truth of His Word...Its where the Word of God is exalted more then the Romantic Love ..In this desert place of your heart the Rose of Sharon will bloom..The pure white Rose with the crimson stain..A Place of suffering to let go of your dreams for the perfect family and marriage..You arise out of a place of poverty and into the supernatural where you are the queen dressed in gowns of Rubies and Gold.The Wisdom of God is your crown and Glory..and your dear husband will come to reign with you as King and Lord over you in this kingdom especially built for you and your family...love connie

Holy Housewifery


Dear Sisters , Ya know we learn obedience to the Lord thru the things that we suffer..As we submit to our husbands - as we humble ourselves...Preachers arent teaching this in the church..its so sad..The big message of the day is "Woman you are loosed".. Loosed from what ? Loosed from what the Bible says about your place as keeper at home..The loosed woman is the one who CAN trust in the Lord and His Word.Some of these preachers from the pulpit seem to be trying to give the Christian wife and Mother an attitude ..A smarty pants personality...What are they doing to our country? Its like these preachers are either ignorant ..or they have an agenda to chase the home makers out to get a job..A two income family can sure give alot more money than a family with a stay at home mother..i mean i am not telling you all any more than what you know already..the problem is that we as Mothers dont want to stand alone..The social gospel will give us happiness for a while..But of all the times to be spiritually lazy ? i mean thats dangerous in this age..Truth ..Gird your loins with Truth ..its part of the whole armor of God,,Eph 6...Also 2 Tmothy 2;3 and 4 ..Thou therefore ENDURE hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Also `the 4th verse No Man {or woman}entangles himself or her self with the affairs of this life..that she may please Him who hath chosen her to be a soldier..love connie

All's Well that Ends Well (A little Humor from Home)

Part 1

i am sitting out on my pretty front porch doing my writing this morning..Well Peggy Sue is pestering me..{My Cat}...Peggy S. wants to go out on the porch but wants me to go out too...for about 5 minutes...Anyway i will try to ignore her ...This day reminds me of yrs ago when Jim and i were getting ready for our garden..Anyway Jim and i worked a bit on it and then he had to go to work.Well next door our neighbor was having this huge tree cut down in his yard..Well the man cutting the tree down was saving all the wood shavings in his truck..Well i went and ask the man if i cud have some of the wood shavings for my drive way..We had gravel in there but it was worn down..so i thot the woodshavings wud work for a while...at least to the end of the summer..Well i had to run into the house to put the dog out or something and when i came back out i saw that this man had dumped a whole big dump truck of wood shavings in my drive-way..All i needed was about a
third of what he gave me..Oh Merciful Heavens..!!I have just a small drive-way that the car sits in..Well i thot as i looked at all that wood shavings " Jim will think i am crazy..He wont hardly be able to get into the drive -way.." I just stood and looked at that mountain of wood and said to the Lord "How on earth will i get this drive way flat enuf so that Jim will be able to drive into it.."?

Part 2

Sooooo anyway.i am standing there trying to figure out how to get the drive way flat so the car can roll into it..Well i got my rake and tried to rake it flat..I was wading in wood chips and the chips came up to my hips..I cud hardly walk..i tried to put some of the chips in the big garbage bags and haul them back to my garden ..i used them as compost in my garden..Also i used them to put around my flowers in the front yard..that was all fine..But i was ringing wet with sweat from trying to flatten the drive way..i only had a few hrs to make things look decent..i mean after i worked an hr you cud hardly see that i had made a dent in it..And ya know i always tried to have things pleasant for Jim when he was just getting off work..I hate to see a man come home from work and have to fix something his wife goofed up while he was at work..!! i mean i wanted Jim to be able to have some time to rest..then he cud do some work or whatever..But i always tried
to get things done so i cud visit a while with Jim and then we cud have supper together..The boys cud have helped me but they were working too i think..i know they werent home..cant remember now.. i finally got so tired i cudnt go another step..OMG..So guess what i did? i widened the drive-way about a foot or so on each side..I thot .."this will have to do for now."so i rushed in and took a quick shower ..put my lipstick on and combed my hair..and waited for Wild Man to get home from work..I walk out casually when i saw the car coming down the street..Jim being a good sport pulled into the mountain of wood chips...

Part 3

Well the next part of this story is even funnier..Yours truely stands there and talks to her husband while he is trying to get out of the car..Where i wud usually be looking down to him in his car ..i am looking up to the sky at him..i told him about the wood chips and how i had worked for hours trying to haul the wood chips to the backyard..and still hardly made a dent in the mountain of wood..Well we had a good laugh over the whole thing..i was soooo tired i cudnt even fix supper..I laid on the couch and Jim fixed something for supper ..i cant even remember now what he made.i know i have told this story before..but it was fun telling it again..One other story i will tell you then i need to go plant my tomatoes..This next story is about an herb called Valerian..Welll this lady wanted to trade some herbs with me..thru the mail..I had just planted Feverfew and Valerian ..But they both looked alike to me ...So i knew that Valarian was something to calm a
person down..So i made a tea with both of the herbs and drank it.. to see which tea made me to relax..Well herbs dont act quickly like medicine with drugs in them..So i wud drink some of the tea i made and i got really impatient and i kept drinking this tea all afternoon ..i was trying to see which was which herb..You are sposed to make Valerian Tea with the roots of the Valerian..But my Valerian didnt have roots yet as it wasnt ready for anything..so i made the Valerian tea out of the leaves..Well Jim came home from work and he noticed his wife was a bit out of it..? you might say?Well this herb wud work differently on each person.. i had drank way to much of this tea..i wud be talking to Jim and my eyes wud close on their own..i had to hold my eyes open with my fingers to see anything..Jim was reading the paper while i was trying to tell him about the herbs..Pretty soon he looked hard at me and said "What is the matter with you?" Well to make a long
story short Jim had to fix supper that night too..I had to go straight to bed as i cudnt sit up anyway..Oh MaryL my mentor laughed her head off when i told her this story...It wasnt funny when it first happened but its gotten funnier and funnier as the yrs go by..Love connie

The Lord Brought My Husband Home

Good Morning Ladies, Wow about every day i wake up to emails of women whose husband just left them..What is the deal?i think its just a test .."TESTING 1-2-3" Step right up ladies who is next to bite the dust..? Who  is next to swallow the lie..? And who will bite a bullet  and hang in there ...? Lately i have been watching CowBoy  Shows on TV...i dont have cable..i have antenna TV..But i watch Gun Smoke if it isnt too violent..Or i watch Bonanza..My favorite is Rifle man..i love how Lucus always protects his lil boy Mark..But ya know what do the old cowboys do when they are pinned in and have no way out? Well they hold up in their hide out ..they take it easy..But usually there is always one bandit that starts to get nervous ..and scared of his shadow.He screams "I can't take it anymore"!!!! and he runs out the front door and gets shot ..BANG !!!!! right in the belly..The other bandits hang in there and wont give up...they hang tight until they see a clear space to jump on their horse and ride into the woods..Satan is after us right now..He wants us to jump and run..He wants to get us out of control and desperate..Times are hard but i think we are harder..Many of you women are already thru the worst of your trials...The husband has left already..But you can pray him home..i prayed Jim home many times until the Lord got ahold of him and showed my husband wisdom.For the first 12 yrs of our marriage he left over 30 times..It was hard..but like hard labor pains in child birth... it only lasted a while...Dont be weary in well doing for you will reap a HARVEST if you dont give up..Love connie...

Come Back to the Old Ways


Dear Mothers,

a few days ago i went to the grocery store...i was tired and felt discouraged..i felt nervous and tight  - as a wad of tired, old, hard gum - that had lost its flavor.."Ya cant chew it, and you may as well spit it out.." As i walked along with my cart the Lord spoke to my heart.He said "Connie come back to the old ways." i thot of "Crowned with Silver"...Oh how we loved this magazine,...It was so old fashioned..And they wrote an article about Coming back to the ancients.i have been reading my concordance this morning about the Ancients ...They were the old men of wisdom.."Coming back to Wisdom? " That sounded good to me...Job 12;12 with the ancient is Wisdom ..and in length of days..understanding....As the Lord spoke to my heart i felt like a Spirit being covered with a shadow of holiness and protection..i felt like a boundary line was around me,,,a border of protection,,The Word speaks of the border of the widow..A heavy veil seemed to be
dropped upon me....The hard tightness left my being ...in my body i felt normal again,,,i felt free again,,..Oh the world trips us,,and strangles the Word right out of us sometimes..we fight or we run from it...But we can only run a while or escape it for a while....Some how this morning i know that God is the only one who can rescue us..We are as dead ducks any other way...He died for us...not because we deserved Him dying for us..He just saw how much we needed him..He has given us free GRACE and MERCY......We cant get this GRACE and Mercy for free..or on our own,,But He gives it to us..i think every now and again he sees me..so lost ..so utterly forsaken of the world...And His compassion gathers me up and He shadows me with His wings,...He is acquainted with grief...He is acquainted with your grief....it touches His heart..Let Him shadow you with His love and Grace and Mercy....and receive His veil of comfort and peace,,,He loves you  ,,,receive  Him now as Savior from Hell..and forgiver of our sins,,,love connie

Divorce and Remarriage

Mornin Ladies.. i started looking up some things on the Titus 2 mom...i know the Internet has some writings about this woman of mystery..But what reallly boils my bones is all the divorces going on in the church..Cant you just see John the Baptist going into these churches and yelling at everyone like he did in the Bible..Telling them what divorce is and adultry..? I was thinking of Mary Prides books lately..I think it was in "The Way Home" book that she told Christian wives that we shud love our husbands more not less when they come home drunk etc..Well really Lady you married him..he is your husband ..Dont ya think God has a plan of VICTORY for you..? We fight spiritual battles to win and God is  greater in us then he who is in the world..And No i am not trying to put anyone down who is divorced..But to me so many excuses are made for the divorced woman and it makes the woman who stood for her marriage look like nin-com-Poop..A few nites ago my friend stopped by,.i will call her Rose..This woman has suffered like a dog...and finalllly her husband has really come to the Lord after about 30 yrs of prayin..I hadnt seen Rose in about a half a year..so i tell her that all of our friends are doing good...I dont want to gossip so i tell the best of each one of them..All of my friends are divorced and remarried..And thats ok with me..But Rose looked at me with such bitterness..She has been forgiving her husband year after yr..and FINALLY he comes to the Lord..When Rose left to go home..i hugged her..and i whispered in her ear "I am proud of you Rose"...and i am soooo proud of Rose..love connie
