Once upon a time there was a little girl with very big dreams, so big it scared her. That little girl went through a lot of trials to find herself and our Heavenly Father.
We all have a past and that past plays such an important role in our future. You learn to see, do and appreciate things differently. You start to shake things off that aren’t good for you or just not part of the more mature you.
Only now that I am 26 years old I see the bigger picture behind my trials and pain that I went through. I know the pain wasn’t from God but, He used that to shape me into the person I am today and to equip me to help others going through the same kind of pain and trials.
It took me 3 years to understand why I have this passion for magazines and getting other people’s stories out there. God gave me many visions about what He wants me to do, but it took me a while to put the pieces together and to see the full
Let me introduce you to my dream and God-given vision – Pearl Drop Moments. It is very difficult to put into words what the fullness of it is. The best way I can describe it is to say that I had to go through a cleansing and growing phase to understand what we as women are called to be. God showed me the faults in my personality and life that He didn’t approve of and how we as true women of God are supposed to live and walk.
I can say to you with all honesty it wasn’t an easy journey and I am still learning and, I’m pretty sure I won’t stop learning anytime soon. One morning while I was on Facebook going through my feed, I started noticing something that made me sick to my stomach. It was like a vail was lifted from my eyes.
Now, I’m not saying this to judge, it is not the women that made me sick it was the lack of purity and the amount of worldliness that were in these women (and me) professing that they are Christians.
I sat there feeling so sad that we all became so part of this world that we can’t even see that just by the way we dress and present ourselves that we are not honouring God, nor the people around us or even ourselves for that matter.
I feel so ashamed of myself for the way I acted, dressed and represented my Father before other people. I’ve come to a point where I feel naked when I’m wearing a strappy top. I started feeling convicted for so many things when it came to my appearance.
I constantly think of how men will look at me if I wear certain clothes, I don’t want to bring anyone into temptation or make my husband feel like he should cover me up. I don’t want him or God to ever feel ashamed of me.
I started wearing less and less makeup as well, not that I’m saying it is wrong to wear makeup it was just something that God convicted me of.
So, the thing is this, God put it on my heart to start this magazine (I am not qualified to this at all) to help His daughters get back to being pure and strive to live a holy life.
We forget one very important thing, before you get married you are in training to become the wife/mother that your husband and children need. You can’t be who they need, if you don’t have a solid foundation. Women play an important role in society, in our homes, at work and in so many other ways.
“An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls”. – Proverbs 31:10-31 [AMP]
Don’t think because you are a women God doesn’t see you as valuable, He loves you so much and wants the best for you. Just trust Him and His process. It might not be easy at times but, it will be worth it.
Think of this magazine as a close friend that you can talk to about any subject. We don’t want to sugar-coat anything, we want to talk about real issues and topics that people often try to avoid. We want the truth and nothing but the truth! Going on a journey together in becoming the true bride of Christ and getting closer to God. Building a real solid relationship with our Heavenly Father.
We all go through a lot of bad stuff but, when we get to the other side of our past and struggles we get to see God’s full grace and glory move in our lives. We learn that sometimes what we went through can help other people get out of their past and closer to God.
Please pray for us and this magazine. We can’t do this without God, we seek His guidance in everything we do. This magazine should reflect God and glorify Him to the fullest. – PDM
