Have you ever been hurt by someone? Like, really hurt?
We’re so quick to push that person aside instead of offering forgiveness and moving forward with them. I read this scripture and was reminded that Christ’s love for us is never diminished or circumstantial. •••••••
If we’re to live like Christ, shouldn’t we love like Christ too?
This challenged me tonight. I immediately realized all the times I failed, times I let hurt take over, frustration blur my vision, and the friendships I could have fought harder for.
Can you relate? •••••••
If there’s someone you should have shown more love to, let them know tonight. Let them know that you realize your mistake and how you should have loved harder. Whether they receive it or not, we need to love like Christ. I really felt like someone needed to hear this tonight. •

"God's PLANS for your life are absolutely AMAZING! All YOU need to do is trust Him, the process and walk in His promises! Don't you know that God has ALREADY written the script, divinely cast the characters who will play a strategic role in your life AND has set up the stage for you to show the world just how BIG God is! He's your Executive Producer and Director of your life, so listen carefully because your cue is next!"~LibFiles

But instead we rather lie in bed with a man who has walking dead brain dead in the head...But thank God there's a God that raises from the dead...Thank God there's a God who can heal the heart and restore the mind who can get you off this emotional roller coaster and for real this time." Another one of my favorite lines from the poem God gave me Act Like A Lady Think Like God. Check out the full length video via the link in my bio. TAG a girlfriend who needs this encouragement <3

The history doesn't have to be clean to be cognate. We are all dancing as fast as we can.... Humans fight wars in their souls as they solider march in their practical lives
They make concessions and try on character costumes... Pray that one day, one fits; Telling ourselves sad, sordid narratives... That don't suit us at all.
But when the opportunity for healing comes... What are we to do? How are we to recognize it?
But what are they to do? When the story no longer suits?
Jumping into the weekend like... Happy Friday, everyone!! 🎉 I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready for the weekend to start after this long week. This weekend, I encourage you to do something that makes YOU happy. Do something YOU enjoy. Take time for YOU!!
“The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.” When you discover the calling God has on your life and start actively pursuing it chilllleeee there’s a JOY like no other. There’s a fire that’s ignited in your soul. Life may try to come quench that fire but it can never put it out. You always find your way back to it. Because it’s the very thing you were created to do. God created you with a calling...with purpose. He knew that the world needed what you have. ❤️

"To love God is to love His will. It is to wait quietly for life to be measured by One who knows us through and through. It is to be content with His timing and His wise appointment." ~ Elisabeth Elliot

Impossible is where God starts. Miracles are what He does. Make God and His truth bigger than anything staring you down.
There’s no problem He cannot solve.
There no question HE cannot answer.
There’s no enemy He cannot defeat.
There’s no difficulty He cannot defeat.
There is nothing our God cannot do.
Prayer: Lord God, help me trust You, obey You, & put more faith in You, who can tear down any wall.
Luke 18:27 - “Jesus replied, “what is impossible with man, is possible with God.” We hope you feel encouraged today. Join us on our journeys of seeking and sharing #hislight .

Beauty, what a thing to behold. Beauty of body and belongings, of mind and heart. We dig through the trenches searching for reality of such things and often come out with a big mess of gut-wrenching lies weighing us down.

Should the church be involved in politics? This question alone has sparked debates for centuries.
The purpose of this workshop is to analyze both the historical and present attempts of voter suppression against the African American community while also highlighting how African Americans, specifically the Black Christian community, unified and rallied against systemic oppression, suppression and discrimination.

So long as love dwells in your heart it makes it impossible for hate to infiltrate it.
Not every day is going to be a great day. But still, that does not mean you are given a free-pass to think and behave the way you please. We have to get to a point where we are not picking and choosing when to be obedient to His Voice.
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to “trust the Lord with ALL thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” And let me tell you, He will most certainly deliver his end of the share. But first it starts with you, therefore what call are you going to make?

Words do indeed have power. They can add to our lives and the lives of other. In the last two posts we have looked at "Proper ways to Use Our Words" and "Our Words Show Who We Are". How do your words reflect the person that you really are? What steps are you using to make better use of your words? You can check my bio for the links to these articles.
Bom dia, sexta chuvosa! 💙☔
Este é o meu combo (base, corretivo e pó) da @rubyrose_oficial 😍 Vocês gostam dessa marca? Eu me identifiquei muito, mas isso vai de cada pessoa porque o que se "dá bem" com a minha pele, pode não se dar com a tua. Então a dica é ir testando as marcas mesmo. Fora isso, a qualidade e o preço são ótimos!

We all know there has been threats of shootings in many different schools, and it is truly sad that people are okay with taking away people’s lives. I think we all just need to really pray that God would protect us and really bring this world back to him.
I pray for the children from the Florida shooting, for the ones who have been traumatized from seeing all the violence and also for the families of those who where killed, I pray that you will protect the rest of the schools around the world, that you will put them in your hands, God I pray that you will help heal the minds of those who may try to plan a attack on their school or on another school, I pray that you will help give them wisdom and understanding to know right from wrong, and decide to do the right thing. Please help our country lord, as when tragedy’s like this happen we would rather fight about politics rather than keeping these kids safe. Help our world have peace again instead of the hate and violence going on now, please God help us take care of these kids. Amen.

My latest Lent essay is up on my website. Have you joined @amandaviviers and I this last week? We’re writing a devotional series called Embracing Slow.
I’ve been embracing it by having my nose stuck in a novel every chance I get, and yesterday afternoon I got my hands dirty and re-potted some little succulents. Pics & words on my blog 🌱
