Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!
Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

It seems like "everyone wants to be a rock star." Have you heard anyone say that? Any of us can fall into that trap. What is beautiful for a woman is maturity, kindness, a quiet spirit, and a gentle heart. Meekness does not mean weakness; women can be full of grace and yet wise and smart. Those who are wise and smart, as a matter of fact, will know how to conduct themselves appropriately. They will mentor the younger women, not looking for praise but doing their part to pass on wisdom to the next generation. This is something that is beautiful. We women need to be INVOLVED.
Remember Uncle Sam's campaign that he was looking for a few good men? He wanted YOU? Well, God has called us women to be a few good women, to change the course of this culture toward godliness, purity, discretion, thoughtfulness, and wisdom. Wouldn't your world be a better place surrounded by people who are trying to be Christ-like?
When we are all doing our best to grow in our character, we all get along better. We will be more tolerant of each other, knowing we are all trying our best to improve and none of us are perfect. We will have a strong work ethic. We will keep our priorities in line: God first, family second, ourselves last. We will encourage one another in the Lord, and build each other up rather than tearing each other down as unfortunately we women tend to do. Ever hear women referred to as fighting like cats? When we are humble, we don't mind that other women appear better than us. We can't control others' opinions; we can only focus on our duty: living a pure and dedicated life for our Heavenly Father who loves us and made each of us special and unique in HIS eyes, the eyes that matter the most. His love is unfailing.
Below is Titus 2:1-15. Please read this and then pray about how God can use you to make a difference in the lives of those around you. It's a very beautiful role that will bring you peace, fulfillment and contentment, and meaning and purpose to your life like you have never known before. Anyone in your periphery who could use a mentor? It starts with you setting the example, and then reaching out and touching others' lives, one at a time, in simple yet loving ways.

The first thing that I want to post in 2019 is a wonderful message by Pastor Darrell Scott. I may have posted this once before but it bears posting it again. I watched it the other night, and it truly inspired and encouraged me.
We are in a dark time in our history, and I truly believe the Lord's rapture is close. But none of us know the day nor the hour, but we are to be prepared for it, and it is our duty to bring as many with us as we can. After Noah entered the ark, GOD closed the door. The people had years of preaching and they chose to reject what they heard. They had a chance but when it was too late, the door was shut.
I want to encourage those of you who have not placed your trust in Jesus to do so today. 2 Corinthians 6:2: "(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)"
Don't delay. Salvation is your hope. It is what you and I need. I have chosen to accept Christ as my personal Lord and Savior because I need salvation for my soul. So do you. That is truth.

Galatians 5:1: "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

This song that I found on the Internet has really given me comfort and I want to share it with you. I hope it will be a blessing to you as you seek God and stay close to Him through the good times and the bad, knowing that His strength is sufficient and His love for you will endure. I challenge you to thank Him as you look to Him for strength, and have faith that He will work all things for your good and His glory when you love him and seek His will.
Romans 8:28 King James Version (KJV)
As an added bonus, this song is sure to be a blessing to you also. It was to me, as it put things in perspective! https://youtu.be/TYSJj-EHAAk
