Woman Without Legs Told By Doctors To Abort Her Baby But She Chose Life And GOD Did A Miracle

Rosemary Siggins is the smallest mother in the world, a height of just 2 feet, 6 inches tall. She is a true medical miracle and inspiration for anyone who feels life is a struggle. She defied doctors when she became the world’s smallest mother.


When Rosemary was 2 years old, she had to get half of her body removed. Suffering from a rare disease called sacral agenisis. She found prosthetic legs too painful, and decided to use a skateboard to get around. She says it’s the “difference between feeling trapped and feeling free”.

Rose was always worried that finding love and having a family would be a major problem for a girl her size. But, that all changed when she met an auto mechanic, Dave Siggins. He worked at the auto part shop that she attended regularly.

They fell in love, and got married after spending some time together. Amazingly they were able to conceive a child, and even though doctors advised Rose to abort the baby she was determined to choose life. Rose went against the doctors’ advice and now has two healthy children, Luke and Shelby!

Rose says her kids love having the shortest mom in the world and their friends thinks she’s cool because she rides a skateboard. She is truly an inspiration to anyone who is going through any kind of struggle.

4 Great Reasons To Pursue Humility

blackman praying post

Our culture constantly tells us to build our self-esteem and think highly of ourselves.

Yet the Bible urges us to do the opposite. To pursue humility. It’s actually a glorious pursuit. And we have plenty of reasons to be humble. Here are a few:

We can’t control anything. We like to think we are in control. We make plans, write out our lists, book our flights, mark our calendars. Yet we can’t control a single thing.

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13–15

We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. We don’t know what the next hour will bring. Or the next 5 minutes for that matter. One little artery in our brain could burst. We could get a phone call with news that will alter our lives permanently. I don’t live in fear of the unknown, but it is humbling to contemplate our lack of control over our lives.

We are only here for a tiny blip of time. “What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” This is humbling. We are nothing great. In the blink of an eye we’ll be gone. We can’t keep our own hearts beating or maintain our breathing. We can’t keep ourselves alive. We can exercise and eat well, and that has some value, but it won’t add a single hour to our lives. God has determined the number of our days.

We are limited in our self-knowledge. “Know thyself” said a philosopher. We can know a lot about ourselves, yet there is much we don’t. We can’t fully know our own hearts and motives. We

can’t fully know our own weaknesses and sins or see them as others can. Proverbs 12:15 says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.” So often my first reaction to correction is to think the other person is wrong and that I’m right—right in my own eyes. That’s why we need brothers and sisters to help us, as it says in Psalm 141:5: “Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness; let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head; let my head not refuse it.” It is a kindness when a brother or sister points out a sin or weakness. In our pride we are tempted to “refuse it.” But a humble person receives correction because he knows he is limited in self-knowledge.

Pride has terrible consequences; humility brings blessing. Proverbs 18:12 says, “Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.” I’d rather have honor than destruction. So I must guard against pride, which is always lurking in my heart. “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (JA 4:6). I don’t enjoy it when people oppose me, but definitely don’t want God opposing me. Really good reason to be humble. “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.” (PR 11:2). Destruction, the opposition of God, disgrace—pride has serious consequences. “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (LK 14:11).

Humility will keep us from sin. A humble person knows he has fallen in the past in many ways and is capable of any sin. A humble person knows that if God doesn’t deliver him from temptation and evil, he is helpless to stand against it. A humble person doesn’t think that he is strong enough to expose himself to sin and not be affected, so he flees temptation. A humble person knows that God is working in him, yet he isn’t perfected yet.

These are but a few of many reasons to pursue humility. May we all seek to be lowly in spirit, like the most humble man who ever walked the earth, our Savior.

7 Things You Need To Win The Job Of Your Dreams

Today’s interviews are often competency-based, “behavioral” interviews. Employers want to know how you have behaved in specific situations so that they can evaluate not only how well you could do the job, but how you would fit into the work team and corporate culture. The best preparation for a behavioral interview is developing personal stories that illustrate past accomplishments.

black-woman happy

Ultimately, the bottom-line question that employers need you to answer in an interview is whether you can produce desired results for them. To be ready to prove your value to a prospective employer, spend time prior to the interview preparing several brief stories (30 to 90 seconds each) that enable the employer to see your job-specific skills.

Seven Key Areas to Showcase Your Abilities

You can start getting ready for a behavioral interview by identifying examples of what you have accomplished in the past. Take the best examples, and work on adding details so that you create compelling narratives that help the employer picture how your past actions have prepared you to excel in this new position. Here are seven areas to consider for creating your personal stories:

  1. Times when you took the initiative to either save money or make more moneyfor the company.

  2. Examples of how you took the lead in getting something (a process, procedure, system, machine, etc.) to function more efficiently or effectively.

  3. A setback or failure in your job or personal life, and how you overcame it.

  4. Times when you provided leadership or guidance that made a difference for an individual, a group or the organization.

  5. Situations in which you had to deal with challenge, stress, and/or uncertainty.

  6. Examples of how you functioned as a valuable team member.

  7. Times in which your skills, character traits and/or knowledge enabled you to makea key contribution in your work.

Well-constructed examples will enable you to prove your potential worth to the employer. Good stories are memorable, and will help you to stand out from other job candidates when the hiring decision is made.

Finding Comfort In The Storm: How To Grow Through Your Tough Times And Never Give Up

Article by JOYCE MEYER

joyce meyer post

At one time or another, all of us have experienced a setback or endured a significant loss. Maybe that’s where you are today; perhaps you’ve lost a job, a relationship, or even someone or something you love.

stress-free-woman POST

If so, I want to encourage you with Matthew 5:4 (AMP). Jesus says, “Blessed and enviably happy…are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!”

I used to think this was odd. I wondered, How can we be blessed if we are mourning? Then God helped me understand that our times of pain are actually perfect opportunities to receive and experience His supernatural comfort.

In fact, having a problem is one of the best places to begin again. Why? Because God’s comfort goes far beyond any ordinary kind of comfort. He is the only One who can carry you through the pain and help you to actually become a better, more powerful person than you were before.

With God’s help, we can look at our pain as an opportunity. I believe we can have an attitude that says, “This may be tough right now, but I will never give up. I’m really hurting, but I’m going to bounce back!”

I recently went to a coffee shop and met a woman who recognized me from my television program. She began telling me what a mess she was in and said, “Joyce, life has just thrown me under the bus.”

Almost without thinking, I responded, “My life used to be the same way, but I decided to drive the bus.”

I wasn’t trying to be flippant or imply that I made anything happen on my own. I explained that when things go wrong, the enemy wants us to spend the rest of our lives under the bus, feeling sorry for ourselves.

But God’s plan is for us to bounce back, get in the driver’s seat, then go pick up other hurting people who are under the bus.

Yes, there is an appropriate time to grieve after a loss or tragedy, but we just don’t want to get stuck there.

Just look at the life of Joseph. The Bible tells us his story in the book of Genesis…

As a young man, Joseph had great dreams for his life. But his older brothers resented him and sold him into slavery and he was taken to Egypt. However, Joseph refused to give up. He found great favor with his master, Potiphar, and was eventually put in charge of his entire household.

Years later, Potiphar threw Joseph in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. But he still didn’t give up. In fact, the Lord eventually gave Joseph an opportunity to interpret a dream for Pharaoh, who then promoted him to the highest official in Egypt!

Joseph literally went from the pit to the palace. Then, years later, when a famine struck the land, the Lord used Joseph to save his family and the entire house of Israel.

Romans 8:28 (NASB) says, “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” When we refuse to give up, the greatest tragedy of our life can actually turn out to be one of the greatest blessings.

Some of my greatest victories have come out of difficult moments when I had to press through and seek God for His help and comfort. I’m grateful today that I didn’t give up during those times because I wouldn’t have the privilege of helping people the way I do.

Similarly, your problems may never completely disappear, but your attitude and response to those problems can make all the difference for you and so many others.

When you are hurting, I encourage you to run to God – the “Source of every comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3). Spend time in His Word, talk to Him in prayer, and choose to worship Him even when you don’t feel like it.

Yes, the Lord will often use others to comfort us. But even those people who are extremely close to us cannot give us everything we need all the time.

When we expect others to do for us what only God can do, we have our expectations in the wrong place, and we will always be disappointed. However, the Bible says those who put their hope in the Lord will never be disappointed (Isaiah 49:23).

Psalm 34:18 (AMP) says, “The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart….” He sees every hurt, every trial and every disappointment. And if we let Him, He will take the bad thing that happened and work it out for our good.

Friends, I encourage you to never, ever give up on God. He’s the only One who can take your pain and turn it into something great!

By looking over these Bible verses you can see that no matter what our circumstance may be or how much we may sin, God’s love is always powerful and willing to make us a better person.

GOD's Love post

If you have a friend who is struggling or stressed with life’s obstacles, share these scriptures with him. He will feel God’s love and realize things are not as bad as they seem.

Below are 7 Bible verses about God’s love:

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 8:37-39 – No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 2:4-5 – But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, evenwhen we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved …

Romans 5:8 – but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

10 Ways To Tell If Someone Is Humble

humble man post

Jesus says in Matthew 5:3, “Blessed are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!”

Let’s face it; humility isn’t a very popular word. Yet, all throughout the Bible, the Lord instructs us about the benefits of being “humble-minded.”

In the book of James 4:6. It says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (ESV). In other words, the humble get the help!

I believe humility is often misunderstood and even viewed as a weakness. But it’s the exact opposite. Humility places us in a position to receive God’s grace and become everything He’s called us to be.

A humble person is also a happy person. They can take joy in their life and what God has called them to do, regardless of what the world thinks about it.

What are some other character traits of a humble person?

1. The humble can always ask for help, and they don’t insist on everything being done their way.

2. They are quick to forgive others, difficult to offend, and content to wait on God for vindication when they have been wronged.

3. They are patient and don’t get frustrated with the weaknesses of others (Galatians 6:2).

4. The humble person is a peacemaker. In fact, we need humility to maintain peace in our lives. Romans 12:16 is one of my favorite scriptures. It says, “Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty…but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself.”

Wow! Just imagine if we all decided to adopt just this one command from the Bible. If you’re like me, so many times you feel like saying, “My way or no way at all!” But there’s a better way…a way that leads to peace with ourselves and others.

5. A humble person knows when to be quiet. It’s certainly not wrong to talk, but a humble person is comfortable allowing others to have center stage and doesn’t feel the need to speak their mind in every situation.

6. A humble person sees their own weaknesses and can readily admit them. When we open up to others about ourselves, it can actual encourage and help them realize they’re not the only ones who deal with things.


7. A humble person happily serves other people, and they don’t do it to be seen. They do it unto God, knowing their reward will come from God.

8. A humble person is very thankful. This is one reason why they’re usually so happy. When we live with an attitude of gratitude, it releases joy and power into our lives.

9. A humble person has a tender conscience and is quick to repent.

10. A leader who is truly humble treats everyone with respect. How a leader treats people is the quickest way to find out their level of humility.

First Peter 5:6 says, “Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you.”

A Pastor Reveals: I Almost Walked Away From Minisrty Because Of Porn Addiction

Pastor Perry Noble doubted his salvation after getting addicted to porn, which began at the age of 14. However, he found ways to get over his lustful obsession after realizing that he was doomed to ruin his marriage and ministry if he continued to feed his flesh’s desire.

Noble, who leads NewSpring Church in Anderson, South Carolina, admitted that he did not consider porn to be a big deal at first, but now he realizes how big a deal it is.

“Porn was my ‘secret sin’ no one knew about. The struggle was real and emotionally and spiritually intense,” writes Noble. “I doubted my salvation, I almost walked away from the ministry, I thought that God hated me…I just could not get control of the addiction.”

As surprising as it is for a megachurch pastor to admit such addiction, porn remains a prevalent issue within the church and it is a topic that rarely gets addressed. According to porn watchdog organization Covenant Eyes, 50 percent of Christian men and 20 percent of Christian women say they are addicted to porn. What is more surprising according to their statistics is that 91 percent of self-identified fundamentalists are more likely to watch porn than regular church attendees.

Although some Christians will admit to viewing porn, 75 percent of pastors who have the addiction do not make themselves accountable to anyone for their internet use, which was the first step Noble took to overcome his addiction.

“Ask for accountability. I am challenging you to find someone who does not struggle with the problem…and ask them to get in your face,” writes Noble.

To this day, Noble notes that one of his best friends and teaching pastor at NewSpring, Clayton King, helps to keep him accountable. He writes that the two made a pact that if either of them watches porn, they have to write the other person a check for $1,000. Although it might not work for everyone, Noble says there have been times when he has been tempted but stops when he thinks about his checkbook.

Furthermore, he suggests staying away from the internet completely in order to avoid falling into temptation.

“Jesus said if your right eye causes you to sin then gouge it out so I don’t think it is a stretch to say if your computer causes you to sin then get rid of it,” writes Noble. ” … For about five years, I did not have the internet in my house because I did not trust myself…”

When it comes to accountability, men should not travel alone, urges Noble. He emphasizes that especially those who serve in ministry should continue to be held liable because temptation is oftentimes “a big deal” when travelling.

Since porn use thrives in privacy, church members who are addicted do not find the help they need because of their shame. However, Noble says an important step to overcome addiction for married men is to tell their spouses.

“I told Lucretia about my struggles before we were married and she still prays for me and holds me accountable today,” writes Noble. “This will hurt her and it will put a strain on things but if she finds out in some other way — and she will — then not only does she feel like you cheated on her but she feels lied to as well.”

In addition to the steps above, Noble says it is important to ask God to help an individual develop a healthy view of women. He notes that this realization was especially hard for him even before he became a father.

“When I realized that woman is some man’s daughter and when I have a little girl I don’t want other men viewing her in a lustful way, I have to admit, this one really impacted me. I have a daughter and I want her to be treated with respect and not as an object for someone’s self-gratification,” writes Noble.

happy-black-woman POSTWe all have moments where we just feel down in the dumps. Here is a way to pick yourself  up out of the doldrums. Its the condition of life.  Sometimes we let life swallow us up whole. We forget that we are part of a greater circle in life. We were not made to be miserable. I am not saying you should smile every minute of the day. I am saying that you should and are entitled to find simple joy in small things. Here  are  8 things that are cost effective that you can do.

1 –Change something in your routine.

 For tonight’s dinner, put out your best linens, create a centerpiece, or simply light a candle. A festive setting makes for a festive mood.

2 –Get outside.

 Whenever you feel bored, antsy, or gloomy, go for a walk. The fresh air, changing scenery, and exercise will boost your mood.

3- Bow out gracefully.

 The next time you argue with someone, be the first person to relent and acknowledge the other person’s point of view. You’ll both be smiling sooner.

4 –Pat a pet.

Rub a good dog. Scratch a cat. Pets love us unconditionally and relieve our stress.

5 –Move your bedtime.

 Go to bed an hour early tonight. Tomorrow, you’ll wake up with a brighter outlook.

6- Build someone’s future.

Volunteer with a local charity. To find a nonprofit or tax-exempt organization near you, read my article:

7- Buy something beautiful.

 Place a small but exquisite painting, handmade vase, or other piece of art prominently in your home. Admire it often.

8- Take lessons.

 When you were a kid, did you always want to try horseback riding or sailing? Do you wish you could take up a hobby, like knitting or piano playing? Now is the time to learn how. Hobbies are fun and relieve stress. Look for appropriate schools in the phone book.

7 Things God Wants To Bless You With

No matter what you currently think about God, He really does have a strong desire to bless you. And here are 7 ways He blesses His children everyday:

praise_lifted_hands 1

1) God wants to help you see things from heaven’s perspective.

As human beings, we tend to view things from earth’s perspective rather than heaven’s perspective. After all, this is where we live right now. It’s all we know. But God isn’t limited by anything because nothing is impossible for Him. So when pressure in your life feels like it is crushing the hope right out of you, look up. Remember the One who left heaven to rescue you. And ask the Lord to breathe a fresh breath of spiritual insight and a wholesome vision into your being. It can make all the difference in the world.

2) God wants to give you joy in serving others.

No one wants to serve others if their heart is filled with selfish desires. And by nature, that tends to be the direction our heart gravitates. But God changes that focus when He comes into our life. He not only makes it delightful for us to worship and serve Him, but it also becomes a joy to serve others. Go figure. That is opposite of the way many people live, but it is so much more fulfilling.

3) God wants to give you peace in every situation.

 While God doesn’t promise His children an easy life on earth, He does promise to be our source of peace in every situation. In other words, Jesus never once said that Christians must carry the cross of anxiety, fear or worry. Those things are not part of God’s plan for His family, even when He allows His children to go through suffering and persecution.

4) God wants to give you encouragement right now.

God never discourages His children, ever. And God never wants His children to be burdened under the weight of discouragement. God wants to lift your spirits right now. He can fill you with hope and He can drive away the dreadful feelings of doom and discouragement. Just knowing how much God wants that for you can be a huge step in the direction of genuine encouragement.

5) God wants to fill you with an appreciation of His love for you.

If you don’t know deep in your heart how much God loves you, life can be pretty dismal. But when you embrace the truth that God sent His only Son to save you from your sin, things take on a whole new perspective. Understanding that God is for you and not against you is a huge deal. And as your heart is filled with an appreciation of God’s goodness to you, the result is a steady flow of peace and joy within your soul.

6) God wants to teach you how to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ.

Until we learn how to take our thoughts captive, we get dragged around by every little thing that distracts us or tempts us. It is only when we learn how to control our thoughts that we start to experience the peace God wants to give us moment by moment. And while there will still be some setbacks in the crucial area of “thought management,” life is much more pleasant when our thoughts are in line with God’s goodness and God’s will for our lives.

7) God wants to bring you safely home to heaven one day.

God wants you in heaven so much that He sent His only Son to die on the cross so you could be saved. Your life on earth will have many challenges, but heaven on the other hand will be perfect. Allow this glorious truth to fill your soul: God wants to spend eternity with you. Those who trust Jesus for salvation are those who know the ultimate blessing of God.

So would you like to have God bless your life today and forever? If so, you can come to the Father through the Son right now and start to receive these 7 blessings immediately. Go for it. You will be glad you did.
