There’s hope.✨ If one ever comes do doubt it - just a single look up can bring the change in perspective. 💙💙
This quote was in my Facebook memories today. Seemed perfectly appropriate to share today in light of all that so many have gone through and are going through due to Hurricane Florence.
He sees you. He cares.
Time.⏱It’s been given to us without cost. It’s worth is not counted as bills in the wallet. It can be wasted, or used wisely. I have the power to decide what will come out of it and what the end value of it will be. And so does everyone else on this planet. It’s a decision. Simple, but still requires rephrasing the word ‘perspective’. ⏱⏳💜
“The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! ” (Psalm 97:1, ESV) #HopeForTomorrow
I'm so exhausted. Bella's forever family has decided that they cannot take care of her after two days of having her. Despite her being great with her children and very affectionate, havibg her was too much for them. We've driven more than 6 hours to save her from being put down and I've just driven 3 more to take her from her supposed to be forever home... The drive heartbreaking as she knew what was happening and just sulked next to me the whole time. Luckily our pack welcomed ger back and help to cheer her up a bit. For now, we'll get some rest and look forward to tomorrow. #heartbroken #notgivingup #hopefortomorrow #rescuedog #adoptdontshop
You’ve been hoping and asking for a long time. Will God ever bring healing? Love? Reconciliation? Deliverance? Provision? Open doors?
He brings us to the very edge of our faith, where he’s the only answer to our prayer.
Join us on the blog today where we pray, one more time, for the impossible.
Somewhere in the middle! One woman multiple sizes, one BIG GOD!
Last fall I was feeling great and I would say I was looking pretty darn decent as well, then LIFE & EMOTIONAL EATING happened shortly after that! •
Yep, I’m totally guilty when I didn’t want to deal with an issue or a circumstance going on in my life I would always want to eat it away! Let me tell you firsthand that doesn’t work!
Am I the only one who does that?🙋🏽♀️
I knew gaining weight was not at all about my external weight gain rather that it was an internal weight gain! Like many of you sometimes we wear our weight on the outside but really the weight is what’s going on in the inside (heart work) Do you know what I mean?
Finally when I tipped the scale at my highest weight ever in my life (I weighed the same weight I did given birth to my youngest child) yikes!🤯😳😱!!! •
That was the wake up call I needed! In a way it was a blessing because it forced me to accept divine intervention and deal with my emotions from a spiritual place with God! Can I tell you I’m so glad that I did! Not only have I dropped 13 lbs to date but I feel lighter in my emotions as well! I feel physically & mentally stronger! My key to any of this is “letting go of old baggage literally and moving forward with God! •
The pic on the left (orange) was last fall 2017 the pic on the right was early summer 2018 (highest weight)! •
The awesome thing is I’m not who I used to be physically, mentally, or emotionally I’m right where God is in the middle of my everyday life & I’m not avoiding anything anymore! •
I don’t want to bombard you with tons of before/after pics of my healthy “everything” journey but I do want to encourage you that doing the heart work will cause everything in your life to line up too! Truth is, I just started one day at a time by turning off all the noises, getting rid of the old (habits, thinking, jobs, etc) & following God’s lead. Im not where I want to be but I’m headed in the right direction. I know it’s not always easy but friend it will be worth it!

Standing strong. 💛 Sometimes lonely, but never alone. Blessed, through all seasons. Just the knowing of not being alone brings rays of comfort that shine from within. It’s all about perspective. 💛✨🍁
“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, ” (Ephesians 2:19, ESV) #HopeForTomorrow
Grateful. 🦋 I choose to be grateful. I choose to reach forward and find a perspective. In the midst of all the many struggles there may be. I allow the simple things in life to remind me of just how blessed I am. Today, not maybe in the future. I then seize the moment, refocus my thoughts, and choose to be grateful, yet again.💙💙
“And he will swallow up ... death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken. ” (Isaiah 25:7–8, ESV) #HopeForTomorrow
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. ” (1 John 2:15, ESV) #HopeForTomorrow
I couldn’t find the right words until today...and as they came to me I wrote and before I knew it, it was a blog. As I think about the sting of grief I will feel during the next thousand Sunday services, communions, prayer services and church events.. I hold on to the fact that he is finally TRULY resting from all the work that he has done...
Pastor Rejouis, I will miss your smiling face and corny jokes...Well Done. ❤️🙌🏽
