Pure and Lovely

Do you long to be PURE and LOVELY?

Have you made some awful mistakes?

God sent His son, Jesus to PURIFY you. Forgiveness is just a prayer away.
"Create in me a PURE heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
- Psalm 51:10
His laws are for our good! When we stay under his umbrella of protection, we can stay PURE and LOVELY.

"The fear of the Lord is PURE, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much PURE gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward."- Psalm 19:9-11

You don't have to be old and wise to be PURE. It is all about your heart. Be an example to your husband, children, friends and family. Show them how to live a PURE life. They will want the benefits that it brings. The peace of living in the center of God's Will.
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in PURITY."-1 Timothy 5:12

No matter how old you are, you are more spiritually mature than someone else. This verse applies to everyone! Make this the goal of your life. Training and teaching other women to be LOVELY and PURE. What a world this would be!

"Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to too much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and PURE, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the Word of God." -Titus 2:3-5

As this world gets more perverse, the world will sit up and take notice when they see a PURE life. While some would view a PURE life as offensive, others will long for the peace and joy that will be so evident.

What are your media choices? Are they PURE and LOVELY?
How is that thought life? Is it PURE and LOVELY?
What kinds of things pop out of your mouth when you are upset? Is your speech PURE and LOVELY?

I have this verse framed and on my wall.

"Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is PURE, whatever is LOVELY, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things."-Philippians 4:8

Let's let this govern everything we say and do!
