Esther or Delilah?

An honest look at how women use their beauty to seduce men! Whether you like it or not you are using your beauty for something, but are you using it to empower a man or are you using it in a way that leaves him powerless? Both Esther and Delilah were beautiful women in the Bible. Both women seduced the man in their life. One woman used her beauty to save her people; the other woman used her beauty to destroy her people. Today’s women are no different from Esther and Delilah. Which woman are you?

      I agree Caroline, let's seek God for how to use our beauty. xxx

  2. Every now and then I pick up a book to give it a quick look through, and before I realize it I have read most or all of it. That happened to me last week when I picked up Esther or Delilah. My intention was to read the book’s introduction, which was so captivating that I ended up reading 5 additional chapters. I had to force myself to put the book down and get back to the tasks I had at hand.

    I was introduced to the book’s author, Angela De Souza, through an online writing community hosted by Harper Collins. She is primarily a women’s writer and conference speaker, but this book also contains good stuff for guys too. Throughout the book the reader will see the M2M box, which means “Message to Men,” with advice just for the guys. Among the advice, when talking about Samson, is, “You are not designed to be a wimp, you are not designed to be weak, and you are not designed to be passive. You are a warrior, so start acting like one (p.34).”

    The main focus of the book is comparing how women use their beauty, whether to save their family (and a nation) like Esther, or to destroy her man like Delilah. As she states on pages 110-111, “Beauty can be unveiled strategically or beauty can be unveiled manipulatively.”

    Every woman possesses charm, and throughout the course of her life she will learn how to use it’s power over men. Girls need to learn from a young age that the fruit of the Spirit can shape them into being the young lady that she needs to be. That is why the author includes chapters on Influence, Respect, Submission, Favor, Timing, Patience, Gentleness, Courage, Faithfulness, and Proverbs 31.

    Even though Esther and Delilah get most of the attention, the book also looks at Ruth, Jezebel, and Abigail, and how each of those ladies influenced the men in their lives. Abigail and Ruth helped bring the Messiah into the world through their descendants, while Jezebel’s entire family was destroyed because of her actions.

    Esther or Delilah ( is a great book for any lady to read, regardless of age. Because of the Message to Men feature, I would recommend it to any guys as well, and even if that part were not there, I would still recommend it because guys should know what a biblical woman looks like, and set their standards high.

      Thank you so much for your thorough review Tommy.

  3. This was inspiring and uplifting which opened my eyes as to how I was living my life. Every woman should own and share a copy of this with her friends.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
