P E R S P E C T I V E // We had a bit of a scare yesterday. We were at a close friend’s baby shower and our cheeky 2yo (who is very active and likes to climb things, as most 2yo kids do) climbed a chair and lost her balance as she tried to stand on top of it, causing her to dive head first onto hard tiles 😨
⠀⠀
There she was lying face down as I ran towards her, and because she didn’t cry straight away, I felt my heart drop and thought this is it, this is every parent’s worst nightmare. ⠀⠀
Luckily she started crying (thank God) and she didn’t throw up (good sign), however when I turned her around I saw that her forehead was not only bruised but it had caved in a little from the impact 😭😱
⠀⠀
We rushed to the emergency and throughout the frantic drive to the hospital all I could think about was: “please God, please don’t take her away from me, please let her be ok, I promise I’ll be a better mum, I promise I won’t complain anymore, it was my fault for turning my attention away from her for a few seconds, I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry, please let her be ok” and on and on it went while I tried desperately to keep my daughter awake as I sat next to her in the car. ⠀⠀
I tried so hard to stay calm and not cry in panic as my 6yo son was also there and I didn’t want to scare him.
⠀⠀
Once we got to the hospital, the doctors and nurses checked her and claimed that thankfully our baby girl was still neurologically sound and there was little damage from the fall. She will have a nasty bruise for a while, but the main thing is that she’s ok 🙏🏻
⠀⠀
Yesterday served as a massive slap in the face for me. Yes #motherhood is overwhelming, yes I may feel like I’ve lost my identity at times, yes it’s tiring, but to have healthy and active children is truly a blessing and I should never take it for granted. 🙏🏻❤️

Being a foster and adoptive mom has given me such a glimpse into Gods love for us in our brokenness. How many days did I spend running and fighting, hurting and aching, cold hearted and spiraling?! Yet, He stood there, waiting for my stubborn self to surrender... to simply be held and accept His love. He simply wanted to hear my cry, catch my tears.... to love me, regardless. 
The days (or nights) I spend with a broken child fighting the healing and the hope, the peace and the hope... it gives me a mere glimpse into what my Heavenly Father does for each and everyone of us. 
Dear God, I pray that I have your heart for the broken, your grace for the hurting, your patience for the battles!

✨It’s okay to C R A W L//
Let’s say goodbye to this summer with some truths: This summer was rough! The whole time I felt like I was doing absolutely nothing. I felt like a child trying to crawl to get a job, find purpose, fix issues, and make things work. .
.
But I always remind myself that in whatever season I am in. There is a reason. Even though I felt like I was crawling from one hurt to another, it was a peaceful summer. .
.
I got to spend a lot of time with this heifa. I got to dream big and jumped into photography. We also got to go to a new adventure(cruising) which I can’t wait to do it again. .
.
.
This summer showed me that:
1) there is rest, peace and growth in hard seasons. 
2) it’s okay to try something new 
3) chase your dreams/desires...
4) it’s okay to jump into new things. Nobody likes regrets!! 5) JESUS IS GOOOOOOOD!!! He provides in the most weirdest ways! .

I believe so strongly that we’re here to help one another through life, but for the longest time, I thought that meant saying “yes” to everything.

Yes to picking up the Friday night shifts. Yes to the party — even when I had one MILLION things to do. Yes to every. single. favor. ever.

I’m for sure at my happiest when I’m serving and helping people, but I’ve found so much strength in saying “no” when I feel drained.

I need time alone to recharge, and I’ve noticed that when I give myself that time, my ability to love and serve increases.

Listen when your mind and heart need a break and don’t feel bad for saying no sometimes. You can only be the person God intended for you to be when you’re meeting your own needs.

And when you truly care for yourself, you’ll have a greater capacity to be there for others and bless their lives.💛

When I first introduced these books to the kids, they weren’t sure what to think. They were hooked by the second page and enjoyed every word. Sometimes I think I can actually see the wheels turning in their brain, the kind of look that hints of flickering ideas and wonder. The books we read are only beginning when we turn the last page. That’s when we take the ideas from the page and make them our own in real everyday life. 🍁 First we read “The Other Way to Listen”. It was beautiful and made us smile. It didn’t escape my notice that the next morning one of the kids said, “Let’s go outside and see what nature is telling us today.” Yes, let’s do. 🍂 When we read “Your Own Best Secret Place”, Bubba immediately ran outside, grabbed a broom and starting tidying up one of the spots he loves most. He couldn’t wait to show me and then he couldn’t wait to share it with Miss Bliss. ✨These are the moments I’m so grateful for books, for beauty, for ideas and wonder, for family and for living hope. But every moment or day does not look like this. FAR from it. Just tonight I walked our land with my husband and our dog. I cried as I shared my failures, my questions and desperation, my longings and disappointments. But you know what? In the honesty and acceptance and companionship, hope grew. After all, trenches are where love does the best work. ✨ God, may we not shirk from the ragged edges of our unfolding stories. Give us eyes to see and receive the goodness and heaps grace for hope-drenched living in the simple things. //

When all is said and done... the only thing that will not fail, is what was done with love, the only thing that will last forever, is what was done by faith and the only thing that will never disappoint, is what was done in hope. Glory...
•
Please, don’t misunderstand me nor be mistaken... I’m not speaking of just any kind of faith, love and hope. I’m referring to the kind of faith, love and hope that begins and ends with God, through His Son, Jesus Christ. I’m highlighting the type of faith, love and hope that are birthed out of His grace and that please Him both now and forever.
•
I want to be clear as possible. I’m not talking about a faith, love and hope I have a wrap on or what’s exclusive to what I understand about them... I’m speaking of a faith, love and hope that are exclusive to God, in Christ, everlasting works of grace that He has a wrap on. Think about it? If any kind or all kinds of faith, love and hope were redemptive and a product of eternal grace then all would have saving qualities but they do not. Not all faith, love and hope are equal. And that which is of God, through Him and for Him is exclusive to Him. There will be many, countless millions, who have loved and loved the best they knew but it will eventually fail them when all is said and done. Why? Their love is not a result of God’s grace nor a love for Jesus and His glory... it’s a kind of for things that are less than and without God. It’s the kind of love that’s missing the grace of God. For if any kind of love produced eternal qualities, all would be safe and secure in their own kind of love, but that is just not so. There would’ve been absolutely no reason for Jesus if man’s way of loving, believing and hope was sufficient.
•
So, we need to understand that all love does not win, because not all love is the kind of love that will not fail. The kind of love that will not EVER fail is the type of love that is exclusive... it’s one of a kind. Because the way, work, wisdom and wonder of it is exclusive to Jesus and those His love is wisely working in and through.

I climbed this mountain with some truly incredible women! This week I learned that we need each other in so many ways and one way is to remind each other to lean on God through all things. I am so thankful to have received this reminder. Lord I need you, oh how I need you! I will leave my worries at your feet Jesus. .

FALLELUJAH ya girls are ready for fall!🍁👏🏽
This is CHURCH CLOTHES.
🍁
Had such a fun day at church! Huge takeaway today was when Pastor Daniels spoke about the new campus coming this spring; he said, “Success is God’s responsibility. Faith and Obedience is our responsibility.” 🔥Not just success in business, but in relationships, decisions and our future; they all require faith and obedience and surrendering it to God. So lucky to do life with people who have big faith and keep obedience at the forefront! 🍁
Hope y’all had the best Sunday! 💖 (side note: this is a natural sun flare on the pic 🤩)

Ladies, it’s time to leave the guilt behind.

Guilt is rotten and does its work to steal you from the value you offer.

Guilt will take any situation, the decisions you’ve made, or words spoken toward you and convince you that you are losing at life.

This. Is. Wrong.

Take those thoughts captive. And when they are thoughts causing you to feel ill-equipped, remember who you are and whose you are.

God chose YOU to be their mother. God chose YOU to take that job. God chose YOU to do that thing.

God chose YOU and He would choose you over and over again.

When you accept THAT truth instead of succumbing to shame, you will be able to fully embrace the path God has set before you and live into the beautiful design of womanhood you were called to live for such a time as this.

My mama got baptized today, and I am so proud!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She was baptized in the Methodist church as a baby and has always lived her life as a Christian woman, but has recently started going to a Baptist church where my dad plays bass for the praise team. We both have talked about wanting to be “dunked” before, and today she did it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I cannot wait to see the ways God uses her in this church, in the lives of the children she will touch through Sunday school, and the new ways He will work in her heart as she is a part of this new congregation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am always so proud this wonderful woman — who is my favorite reflection of  Jesus — is my mom; and that, after baptism x2, I’ll certainly be hanging out with her for eternity!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS — A side story about today: Mom moved her baptism to this weekend so I could be there since I was in Charleston last weekend. I wanted to be there so bad I was going to change my flight if the baptism couldn’t be moved. And y’all. I missed it. I missed her being baptized today. I walked through the doors at 10:02am for the 10:00am service, and they had already made she and my dad a member + baptized her. She was sitting up in the tub about to exit. I died a little inside because I knew I missed that moment forever. Crushed. I’m still crushed. I don’t know what I was thinking or why I did extra stupid, piddly things around the house to make me two minutes late. I don’t know if God was protecting me from an accident if I had left early or teaching me that some things can wait + early sometimes is better. But I missed it, and — although so thankful for a full day today with my mom and dad regardless of coming in on the back end of this special moment — I am so tore up that I missed it. And I’m just telling you to keep this reel, REAL + to remind you that the chores can wait but the moments cannot. So forget switching over the laundry. Show up early, just in case. You’ll never regret not getting a chore completed. But you will regret missing a moment. Lesson learned.

My mama got baptized today, and I am so proud!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She was baptized in the Methodist church as a baby and has always lived her life as a Christian woman, but has recently started going to a Baptist church where my dad plays bass for the praise team. We both have talked about wanting to be “dunked” before, and today she did it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I cannot wait to see the ways God uses her in this church, in the lives of the children she will touch through Sunday school, and the new ways He will work in her heart as she is a part of this new congregation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am always so proud this wonderful woman — who is my favorite reflection of Jesus — is my mom; and that, after baptism x2, I’ll certainly be hanging out with her for eternity!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS — A side story about today: Mom moved her baptism to this weekend so I could be there since I was in Charleston last weekend. I wanted to be there so bad I was going to change my flight if the baptism couldn’t be moved. And y’all. I missed it. I missed her being baptized today. I walked through the doors at 10:02am for the 10:00am service, and they had already made she and my dad a member + baptized her. She was sitting up in the tub about to exit. I died a little inside because I knew I missed that moment forever. Crushed. I’m still crushed. I don’t know what I was thinking or why I did extra stupid, piddly things around the house to make me two minutes late. I don’t know if God was protecting me from an accident if I had left early or teaching me that some things can wait + early sometimes is better.

Sometimes you’re so misunderstood, misjudged, or misquoted that you can’t believe people could be so wrong about something when you try your best to get it right. Sure you’re an ambitious woman on a mission with goals and dreams but the judgement and shade coming your way is mind-boggling. You find yourself chasing rumors, wanting to set the record straight, and give them a piece of your mind. You become so bothered by the situation, so annoyed about the false narrative and foolishness that distraction has become your new normal. Eventually your emotions lead you into a self-imposed wilderness experience where truth be told…….revenge is looking mighty sweet. ⁣
⁣
But now you know better and realize that winners don’t respond to foolishness, they ignore it and shine anyway.  You recognize that heaven has a full account of the truth, so you can let people talk because you are fully persuaded in what GOD said. So #RestWell knowing that you can continue marching in silence by faith into your promise, and when the walls come down, it will set the record straight.⁣

If you believe that and are DETERMINED to REST WELL tonight, let me see your 💤 💤 💤 in the comments below. ☺️🌷

A reminder for when the Sunday scaries hit: you can handle whatever this week holds.

Not by your own strength, but by the power of the One who has no weaknesses. Lean into His love.

Let’s choose peace over worry this week. Let’s lean into love 🌿

Heading back out to church, feeling a little unsure about what I bring, but being faithful to show up. Maybe I’m just realizing it’s not about me, but God In me. Tonight is costume laser tag at youth group- neither are my forte. I’m more of the small group craft with hot cocoa night girl. But I have a feeling I’m not the only one like that, and I’ve been learning to show up and see others. Being faithful to show up and see others instead of focusing on my awkwardness has made such a difference everywhere I go. When I’m not focusing on me I’m actually able to see other people and who might need a friend, or who I can help feel welcome. Things I remind myself heading into social situations: who can I see? Who else needs a friend? Who can I get to know? Who can I serve? Who can I make feel seen and heard and known? I remember when people remembered my name at youth group 15 years later. If I can make one person feel seen that’s worth showing up. And maybe that’s one way Christ is getting me to forget me, and be more like him.

Laughter, joy, fulfillment. 😁⁠
These are some of the blessings that the Holy Spirit gives us when we surrender our entire lives to him.🙏⁠
It's an internal peace that the world longs for but doesn't know how to achieve, as the only one who can give it to us is Jesus. 😇⁠

beautifully learning, this thanksgiving I’m reflective on the moments I don’t feel fulfilled from. I’m learning to be thankful for them, because being unfulfilled means the best is perhaps yet to come. ✨#thanksgiving

Just a few more hours to snag this for $89 off retail! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Rejuveniqe is made up of 13+ natural, botanical oils whose molecular structure is small enough to penetrate the scalp and the hair shaft at the cellular level! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Your hair will have added volume and shine as the oil fills in the hair shaft and smooths the cuticle. Morrocan and Argon oils can’t say the same.. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Most morrocan or argon oil treatments are full of silicone polymers. They’ll give your hair some shine, but can’t actually penetrate the hair. Plus, they’ll increase buildup on the hair, giving your hair a more dull look over time and weighing it down. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Rejuneniqe will give your scalp and hair the nourishment it needs. Greasy or Dry? This oil balances the oils on the scalp, helping you go longer between washes (I average every 4 days) without getting greasy, but won’t dry out your hair! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Rejuveniqe is extremely concentrated so it lasts FOREVER!! On average, it lasts at least 8-10 months depending on how often you use it and what you are all using it for. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Seriously ya’ll - you need this stuff in your life! And for the next few hours you can change up your haircare or skincare routine and get this magic for - steal!!!⁣

How are you gathering right now?
Are you gathering around your people today?
Are you gathering up courage today?
Are you gathering up the broken pieces of your heart today?
Are you gathering your thoughts?
Are you gathering loose ends?
Are you gathering enough to make it through next week?
Are you gathering somewhere for the last time?
•
As a #communityforyoursoul gal, the word gather is one of my favorites!
And, this coffee cup is one of my favorites. But as I was sitting there this morning in the front yard, I looked over at this word so boldly lingering in front of me, and realized it has so many stories attached to it. Literally, every fresh day gives a new way of understanding the word gather.
While some versions of the word gather conjure up intimacy and hope, other versions of gather remind us of pain and the loss of control.
•
Wherever you are finding yourself tonight, my friend, I pray that you find grace in the gathering... Right now I am thankful for the people who have gathered around me in this season!

PRAYER IS CONNECTING OUR HEART AND SOUL TO GOD!!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
The disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. We know the prayer, but was that the only thing Jesus was trying to teach them? Jesus is also teaching them how to pray, praise for God came first, the desire to God’s will is next, then we can ask for what we need as well as asking forgiveness for the times we have not lived as God wants us to do. ⠀
.⠀
.⠀
After asking for forgiveness, we ask God to help us avoid the sins we just confessed. The only thing missing in the prayer is that of thanksgiving, which Jesus has told us is important. Knowing prayers is important especially when we pray together as a community, but it is also important to know that Jesus didn’t suggest that only formal prayers is enough. In fact he tells us not to babble on as the pagans do!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
When we listen to Jesus’ prayer at the grave of Lazarus or in the garden, or when he offers a prayer of blessing, he is not using a formalized prayer but is speaking to God as his Father. He is inviting us to do the same by beginning what we call "The Lord’s Prayer" by saying, "Our Father." May we follow the example of Jesus.

Confrontatie met Farizeeën en schriftgeleerden 4
Wanneer een onreine geest iemand verlaat, trekt hij door dorre oorden op zoek naar een rustplaats. Maar als hij die niet vindt, zegt hij: "Ik zal terugkeren naar mijn huis, dat ik verlaten heb." En wanneer hij terugkeert, merkt hij dat het schoongemaakt is en op orde gebracht. Dan gaat hij weg en haalt er zeven andere demonen bij, slechter dan hijzelf, en ze nemen daar blijvend hun intrek. En zo is de mens bij wie de demon intrekt er ten slotte veel slechter aan toe dan voorheen. Zo zal het ook gaan met deze verdorven generatie.' Terwijl Hij nog met de mensen in gesprek was, dienden zich buiten Zijn moeder en Zijn broers aan. Ze vroegen Hem dringend te spreken. Iemand zei tegen Hem: 'Uw moeder en Uw broers staan buiten, ze willen U spreken.' Hij antwoordde: 'Wie is Mijn moeder en wie zijn Mijn broers?' Hij maakte een gebaar naar Zijn leerlingen en zei: 'Zij zijn Mijn moeder en Mijn broers. Want ieder die de wil van Mijn Vader in de hemel doet, is Mijn broer en zuster en moeder.'

Obviously edited but so true 😌 
It all starts with the little steps to turn them into bigger steps. Even when it may seem like your schedule is already packed tight, you are in control of your own life and your priorities. 
Remember that above all your daily duties, don’t forget to put #Christfirst

NO WEAPON SHALL PROSPER AGAINST YOU
.
A life that is founded upon the gospel of Jesus Christ is unshakable. When you build your life upon the gospel, you are building on a strong foundation that will give you stability and the power of God for lasting breakthroughs (see Rom 1:16).
.
You may be going through an extremely difficult season right now. Perhaps you are reading this and you have just received a negative medical report, or maybe you are surrounded by some challenging circumstances at your place of employment. I want to encourage you to say this by faith: “I am too blessed to be stressed.” Now invite our Lord Jesus into your situation. Involve Him in your area of need. Whether it is a healing, provision, or relationship breakthrough that you need, see and believe that the Lord is with you.
.
My dear friend, don’t put your trust in your own understanding. Instead, lean wholly on the one Who is more interested in your success than you are. The book of Proverbs tell us, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Prov 18:10). Run to Him and cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you. Speak with me this promise of God found in today’s scripture into your situation right now: “ ‘No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,’ says the Lord.” Amen & Amen!
.
Meditate on the last line of this powerful scripture. In the new covenant of grace, your righteousness is from the Lord Jesus Himself. Now, the more you understand your righteousness in Christ, the more you will experience His promise in today’s scripture.
.
The opposite holds true. When God’s people are not established in their righteous identity in Christ, they become susceptible to the weapons of the enemy.

"The wound is the place where the Light enters you."- Rumi
.
.
Growing up, I had such a messed up view of my scars, mainly because of the bullying I received because of them. My scars are something I can't control, they are apart of me. Yet, I viewed them as shameful and ugly, when they are literally quite the opposite. They are beautiful. They are a reminder of what Jesus has brought me through. .
.
When I see my scar on right side of my back, I see where God breathed life back into me. I was 6 weeks old and dying. I needed to have BT shunt, but my oxygen sats were extremely low. My doctor told my parents that if they took me to the OR I would die. My parents just started praying. My momma opened her eyes to see a bright glow over me, she looked at the monitors and she saw a miracle. My sats were soaring. Jesus moved his mighty hand. .
.
My scars tell a story, the story of how God has always been there for me. He has moved his miraculous hand time and again in my life. I may question things. Why me, why was I born with this? He gently reminds me that I am a vessel and he wants to use me to bring others to him. I may not know the bible from front to back. I don't read my bible as much as I should. But, I know what God has done for me. I know how amazing and miraculous he is. Even in the mundane things, he is amazing. He is the waymaker. The miracle worker. .

"The wound is the place where the Light enters you."- Rumi
.
.
Growing up, I had such a messed up view of my scars, mainly because of the bullying I received because of them. My scars are something I can't control, they are apart of me. Yet, I viewed them as shameful and ugly, when they are literally quite the opposite. They are beautiful. They are a reminder of what Jesus has brought me through. .
.
When I see my scar on right side of my back, I see where God breathed life back into me. I was 6 weeks old and dying. I needed to have BT shunt, but my oxygen sats were extremely low. My doctor told my parents that if they took me to the OR I would die. My parents just started praying. My momma opened her eyes to see a bright glow over me, she looked at the monitors and she saw a miracle. My sats were soaring. Jesus moved his mighty hand. .
.
My scars tell a story, the story of how God has always been there for me. He has moved his miraculous hand time and again in my life. I may question things. Why me, why was I born with this? He gently reminds me that I am a vessel and he wants to use me to bring others to him. I may not know the bible from front to back. I don't read my bible as much as I should. But, I know what God has done for me. I know how amazing and miraculous he is. Even in the mundane things, he is amazing. He is the waymaker. The miracle worker. .
.
Jesus is the light of the world. His light shines brightest from my scars. From his masterpiece...

Sometimes, our prayers can be so puny. We should train ourselves to pray with impact. Pray with some boldness. With some gusto. Pray audacious prayers.⁠
.⁠
People with an abundance mentality pray as if God is able to give abundantly. They pray to see the miraculous. They pray to see the impossible.⁠
.⁠
And this isn’t me encouraging you to pray for God to make you rich, comfortable, respected, or famous. Those prayers are too small. They’re too self-centered.⁠
.⁠
Let’s ask God for BIG things. Let’s ask for God to transform our communities. To change the hearts of people we think will never change. To make his name known among the people in our sphere of influence. To provide new and exciting avenues to fulfill our purpose that we can’t even think of yet.⁠
.⁠
James says this.⁠
.⁠
“You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.” (James 4:2b-3)⁠
.⁠
Those are such powerful words: you do not have because you do not ask.⁠
.⁠
If you would only ask for God to do big things, and if only you would ask unselfishly and with a heart only to see his glory, then you would begin to remove the word impossible from your vocabulary.

"God has created all things for good; all things for their greatest good; everything for its own good. What is the good of one is not the good of another; what makes one man happy would make another unhappy. God has determined, unless I interfere with His plan, that I should reach that which will be my greatest happiness. He looks on me individually, He calls me by my name, He knows what I can do, what I can best be, what is my greatest happiness, and He means to give it me." – St. John Henry Newman

St. John Henry Newman, ora pro nobis 🙏🏻

Sunday's... delicious vegan food, and laughter without limits.

Photo ops are rare, because my hand is occupied with his hand holding mine.  Like a moth to a flame, I'm drawn to light of his affection.

Our connection requires undisturbed time, and today was unhurried, and sedated by the simple things that makes our love belong to us.

This is us.  Bell party of two. 
Our nest is empty,  but full of joy!

Thanks my husbaefriend!❤ #graceupongrace #bedeeplyrootedinChrist #bettertogether

GRACE.  the unmerited, undeserving favor of God to those who are under condemnation. 🙋🏻‍♀️⠀
⠀
We need this from every direction and in ALL relationships.  First and foremost from above «« for that I am deeply thankful!⠀
⠀
From us to towards others. ⠀
From others to us.⠀
From us to ourselves.⠀
⠀
WHY?⠀
Grace means forgiveness. ⠀
Grace means help.⠀
Grace means time to work on our own salvation.⠀
⠀
Are there any pieces of the "grace puzzle" that are difficult for you to grasp?⠀
⠀
It's all about that grace!

Before we leave Nehemiah 2, I have one more word: •

Neh 2:4-5 •

The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried so that I can rebuild it.” •

What’s your ‘why’? Your ‘why’ is what drives you. •

Whether it’s your #family, the #church #God called you to start, starting a new #business so you can fund your church or start a non profit. •

So, how do you find your ‘why’? •

In Neh 1:3 Nehemiah’s brother gives him a bad report of the remnant in Jerusalem: • “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, & its gates have been burned with fire. ” •

What breaks your heart, or what would break your heart if it happened that you have the power to prevent or help prevent? •

That’s your ‘why’. •

A few yrs ago, I prayed “Give me a platform that I may speak to the many.” •

God said, “If you want to speak to the many, speak to the one.” •

At my church, I serve in our #kidschurch & on the #prayer team. •

This morning I held a couple of crying toddlers, I helped a few more put their shoes on, & I served snacks to them & more. •

Then, when the altar call came in big church, I prayed with someone who wanted prayer for his brother who is going through some battles. •

Then, as I was walking out of the church auditorium I saw a friend sitting alone in the back. I sat with him, listened to his challenges, gave him some counsel & prayed with him. •

Whoever God calls me to minister to is my ‘why.’ My ‘why’ drives me to #pray, dive into the #Bible, & seek to be the man God called me to be. •

What’s your ‘why’? •

Have you noticed that it is easier to believe what God says about Himself than what God says about you? Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). We read those words and shout, “Amen! Hallelujah! Woo-hoo!” But He also said, “YOU are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14). Hmmm. Not a lot of shouting going on with that one. So which is it? Both! 
Are you going to believe what Jesus said is true about you?

Write down these three truths on an index card and make them yours today.

I am the salt of the earth. Matthew 5:13
I am the light of the world. Matthew 5:14
I am completely forgiven. Ephesians 1:7

Friend, any thought that says “you can’t” or “you’re not good enough” is a straight up lie that you have FULL PERMISSION to laugh at & push aside!

The thing is, the enemy is terrified that youll Believe what God says about you! When this happens, you’ll become 𝐮𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 & will ruin his plans!

So next time you question your identity or capability - 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫, you are 𝐀𝐋𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐃𝐘  enough, capable, worthy, chosen and suited for the job! ♥️

Sometimes we tend to be silent because we feel that its a better choice. We keep our thoughts and feelings inside so we don’t hurt others’ feelings and we don’t create conflict. But, there are times that we have to speak. But we should speak what’s truly in hearts using kind words, sincere intentions and  God’s grace.
We should also speak about our great and loving God! ☝🏻 Don’t be shy to share about Him. 
We should speak also of His love, greatness and power, let the people know How great our God is. ☝🏻 #GraceUponGrace

We are soon embarking on a journey for 40 days by learning from the book Draw the Circle. We have first hand seen the amazing things that the teachings of this book can do, because the author’s words were inspired by God. 
We want you to join us on this adventure of growing closer to God through prayer.

Below is one of the quotes from the author:
“Each prayer is like a seed that gets planted in the ground. It disappears for a season, but it eventually bears fruit that blesses future generations. In fact, our prayers bear fruit forever”
-Mark Batterson

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
when I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.”
Psalm 63:1-8

Confrontatie met Farizeeën en schriftgeleerden 3
Daarop reageerden enkele schriftgeleerden en Farizeeën met een vraag: 'Meester, we zouden graag een teken van U zien.' Hij antwoordde: 'Dit is een verdorven en trouweloze generatie. Ze verlangt een teken, maar zal geen ander teken krijgen dan dat van de profeet Jona. Want zoals Jona drie dagen en drie nachten in de buik van een grote vis zat, zo zal de Mensenzoon drie dagen en drie nachten in het binnenste van de aarde verblijven. Op de dag van het oordeel zullen de Ninevieten samen met deze generatie opstaan en haar veroordelen; want zij hadden zich bekeerd na de prediking van Jona, en hier ziet u iemand die meer is dan Jona! Op de dag van het oordeel zal de koningin van het Zuiden samen met deze generatie opstaan en haar veroordelen; want zij was van het uiteinde van de aarde gekomen om te luisteren naar de wijsheid van Salomo, en hier ziet u iemand die meer is dan Salomo!

Op de dag van het oordeel zal de koningin van het Zuiden samen met deze generatie opstaan en haar veroordelen; want zij was van het uiteinde van de aarde gekomen om te luisteren naar de wijsheid van Salomo, en hier ziet u iemand die meer is dan Salomo!
Confrontatie met Farizeeën en schriftgeleerden 2
Wanneer een boom goed is, dan zijn ook zijn vruchten goed. Is een boom daarentegen slecht, dan zijn ook zijn vruchten slecht. Want aan de vruchten herkent men de boom. Addergebroed! Hoe kunt u iets goeds zeggen terwijl u zelf slecht bent? Waar het hart vol van is, daar loopt de mond van over. Een goed mens haalt uit zijn schatkamer met goede dingen het goede te voorschijn, terwijl een slecht mens uit zijn schatkamer met slechte dingen het slechte te voorschijn haalt. Ik zeg u: van elk nutteloos woord dat mensen spreken, zullen ze op de dag van het oordeel rekenschap moeten afleggen. Want op grond van je woorden zul je worden vrijgesproken, en op grond van je woorden zul je worden veroordeeld.'

Confrontatie met Farizeeën en schriftgeleerden 1
Toen bracht men een blinde bij Hem die bezeten was en niet kon spreken, en Hij genas hem, zodat hij weer kon spreken en zien. Alle omstanders stonden versteld en zeiden: 'Zou Híj de Zoon van David zijn?' Maar de Farizeeën die dit hoorden, zeiden tegen elkaar: 'Hij kan die demonen alleen maar uitdrijven dankzij Beëlzebul, de vorst der demonen.' Jezus wist wat ze dachten en zei tegen hen: 'Elk koninkrijk dat innerlijk verdeeld is wordt verwoest, en geen enkele stad of gemeenschap die innerlijk verdeeld is zal standhouden. Als Satan Satan uitdrijft, keert hij zich tegen zichzelf. Hoe kan zijn koninkrijk dan standhouden? En als Ik inderdaad door Beëlzebul demonen uitdrijf, door wie drijven uw eigen mensen ze dan uit? Zij zullen dan ook uw rechters zijn! Maar als Ik door de Geest van God demonen uitdrijf, dan is het koninkrijk van God bij jullie gekomen. Trouwens, hoe kan iemand het huis van een sterkere binnengaan en zijn inboedel roven, als hij die sterkere niet eerst heeft vastgebonden? Pas dan zal hij zijn huis kunnen leegroven. Wie niet met Mij is, is tegen Mij, en wie niet met Mij samenbrengt, drijft uiteen. Daarom zeg Ik u: elke zonde en elke godslastering kan de mensen worden vergeven, maar wie de Geest lastert kan niet worden vergeven. En iedereen die iets ten nadele van de Mensenzoon zegt, zal worden vergeven. Maar wie kwaadspreekt van de heilige Geest zal niet worden vergeven, noch in deze wereld, noch in de komende.

Jesus was making His way to Jerusalem—the place where everything written about the Son of Man would be accomplished. (See Luke 18:31-33.) Jesus moved between towns and villages, teaching Pharisees and scribes, tax collectors and sinners, and His own disciples along the way. Luke 18:9-14 describes a parable Jesus told to a specific group: “to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and looked down on everyone else” (Luke 18:9). The parable presents two men who went up to the temple complex to pray. The first, a Pharisee, was proud and believed he was righteous because of his own deeds. He stood up and prayed, thanking God that he was not as sinful as other people. 
The second, a tax collector, humbly acknowledged his sin and asked God for mercy. Jesus explained that the tax collector—and not the Pharisee—went home justified. 
The tax collector knew he needed God to forgive him, and he cried out to God. Everyone is a sinner who needs forgiveness. Jesus took the punishment for our sin by dying on the cross. We can cry out to God like the tax collector and because of Jesus, God will forgive us. 
As you talk with your kids, explain that God rejects the proud but gives grace to the humble. (See Jas. 4:6.) The sin of pride keeps us from Jesus. Pride is thinking we are better than we really are. Someone with the attitude of the Pharisee sees no need for Jesus. The Pharisee focused on sins he had avoided rather than confessing his sin, but the tax collector knew he had no standing before a righteous God. He asked for mercy, and God was merciful to him. 
God did not look at the Pharisee—nor does He ever look at us—and say, “Wow, that’s impressive.” God sees us for who we really are: sinners in need of forgiveness. Jesus took the punishment for our sin by dying on the cross. God wants everyone to be saved (see 1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9), and we can come to Him with nothing but empty hands of faith. We can cry out to God like the tax collector and because of Jesus, God will forgive us.

Jezus en de sabbat 2
Grote massa's mensen volgden Hem, en Hij genas hen allen. Hij verbood hun uitdrukkelijk bekend te maken wie Hij was. Zo ging in vervulling wat gezegd is door de profeet Jesaja: 'Hier is de dienaar die ik mij gekozen heb, die ik liefheb en in wie ik vreugde vind. Ik zal hem vervullen met mijn geest, aan alle volken zal hij het recht verkondigen. Hij zal geen woordenstrijd aangaan en op straat Zijn stem niet verheffen. Het geknakte riet breekt Hij niet af, noch dooft Hij de kwijnende vlam, totdat het recht dankzij Hem overwint. Op Zijn naam zullen alle volken hun hoop vestigen.'

Jezus en de sabbat 1
In die tijd liep Jezus op een sabbat door de korenvelden. Zijn leerlingen hadden honger en begonnen aren te plukken en ervan te eten. Toen de Farizeeën dat zagen, zeiden ze tegen Hem: 'Kijk, uw leerlingen doen iets dat op sabbat niet mag.' Hij antwoordde: 'Hebt u niet gelezen wat David deed toen hij en zijn metgezellen honger hadden, hoe hij het huis van God binnenging en er met hen van de toonbroden at, terwijl noch hij noch zijn mannen daarvan mochten eten, alleen de priesters? En hebt u niet in de wet gelezen dat de priesters die op sabbat in de tempel dienst doen en zo de sabbat ontwijden, onschuldig zijn? Ik zeg u: hier gaat het om meer dan de tempel! Als u begrepen had wat bedoeld wordt met: "Barmhartigheid wil Ik, geen offers, "dan zou u geen onschuldigen hebben veroordeeld. Want de Mensenzoon is Heer en Meester over de sabbat.' Hij trok weer verder en kwam in hun synagoge. Daar stond iemand met een verschrompelde hand. Omdat ze Jezus wilden aanklagen, vroegen ze: 'Is het toegestaan op sabbat te genezen?' Hij antwoordde: 'Stel dat u maar één schaap hebt en dat valt op sabbat in een kuil, wie van u zou het niet vastgrijpen en het er weer uit halen? En is een mens niet veel meer waard dan een schaap? Daaruit volgt dat we op sabbat goed mogen doen.' Toen zei Hij tegen de man: 'Steek uw hand uit.' Hij stak hem uit en er kwam weer leven in, zijn hand werd weer even gezond als de andere. De Farizeeën dropen af en besloten Hem uit de weg te ruimen. Jezus besefte dat en week uit naar elders.
