Yesterday a very pretty girl was helping me with a purchase. I believe I was in obedience to the Holy Spirit as I felt the nudge to give her the following message. I said something close to this: “You are a beautiful girl. With your beauty, you must use wisdom to keep from being loaded with problems ten or fifteen years down the way. Be wise with your beauty.” She smiled and seemed receptive to my advice.
I published the following post only a few months ago. I feel “nudged” to copy and paste this warning again. Grandparents, call your grandchildren’s names to the Lord today. Girls and boys, beautiful and plain, have souls that are all precious to our Lord.
A notable quote by a little girl watching her grandfather digging out a septic tank, “I don’t hope I ever fall in that.”
I’m thinking of this regarding some of the sin and slime, so many little girls “never hope they fall into.” But glamour and enticement dangle happiness and excitement and many forget about avoiding into the pit.
I remember a time when I was about 11 or 12 in Canon City, CO. My mother and I were staying at an aunt’s house a few blocks from the church we were going to on that Sunday morning. I was ready before they were, so I decided to walk to church by myself. A few blocks away from the church, a car pulled up and a young man called to me. “Would you like a ride?”
Now down in the midst of my preteen heart, I thought that meant he thought I was kinda cute. A bit of a thrill. I didn’t recognize it as a “pit I don’t hope to fall into.” Looking back I realize I must have been protected by angels assigned to me in answer to prayers that had been made for me.
Thankfully I did not “fall into that pit.” I did not respond. I acted like I did not hear, and walked confidently down the block just like I knew where I was going and I ended up in the right place.
Now as an adult, I realize that was exactly how I should have acted. Must have been because I had good folks praying for me.
