Have to share this too! I made this painting for the Edson family; this is their house. They just adopted a sibling group (2 sisters) through the foster system in Montana. Fostering to adopt is not for the faint-of-heart so I made them a painting to celebrate and declare a powerful prayer over their home. You are so loved, Edsons! #familyof7 #matthew7 :25 @zootown_graces
Knock and the door shall be open unto you! This little man makes his family so proud...everyday something new! #babydavid #matthew7 :7 #19months
Wind Canyon, in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, can be explored by taking a relatively easy and short hike. The hike, which is less than one-half mile round trip, takes you over a bluff high above the river. The Little Missouri River winds through the park, creating a beautiful landscape. Most badlands are carved by water. However, here in Wind Canyon, the prevailing winds cause the majority of the erosion of this soft, sedimentary canyon, and the result is beautiful rock formations. "The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:5. Both water and wind are powerful and can change an entire landscape, as well as do a lot of damage. But here in Scripture is the testimony of one who survived pelting rain, rising floods, and fierce winds because the foundation was secure - built upon the rock. What do you face? Relentless temptation from the evil one? Cruel persecution from the world? Unwanted corruption from your own flesh? Errors from others? You are safe if your life is built upon the Rock, Jesus Christ. Anything else we might build our lives upon is sand. Worldly prosperity? It can disappear in a millisecond. Relationships? Others will let us down and disappoint us. Entertainment and adventure? The excitement soon wanes. Success in business? There's always someone better who will eventually take our place. We need a secure foundation that can withstand the ups and downs of life and that can weather the storm, and that secure foundation is Jesus Christ. #GodsBeautifulCreation #GodsWord #GodsCreation #naturephotography #dailybibleverse #dailydevotion #dailydevotional #christiantravel #travelusa #wordtraveling #beautifuldestinations #beautifulusa #americathebeautiful #truth #goodnewsfeed #pray #christianlife #christianwriter #wordpicture #encouragement #faithinGod #Jesusfirst #Godlovesyou #Godhasaplan #theodorerooseveltnationalpark #nd #northdakota #littlemissouririver #matthew7 #secure
🗣🗣As long as I do right by God he’ll continue to do right by ME! Becoming a single mother humbled me completely. I will FOREVER be grateful for my heartaches , late night crying , stress and struggling. I NEVER allowed my situation defined my destination! I’m 🗣HEALED mentally , emotionally and spiritually . I have a peace of mind because I decided to trust God at the end of 2017. When you get tired of crying , stressing and staying depressed , worrying how your life will end up , you’ll turn to God and the way God moves in your life you’ll never look back to anything that brought you pain , heartache or setbacks. Stay focused on God and know he’s the reason for anything you neeed. Ask God to heal and reveal. Ask him to put you in position to receive EVERYTHING he has for you. Never try to get revenge. God doesn’t need help punishing people. Cutt off ANYTHING that is toxic ! I learned that if I’m healed in all areas and go into any situation HEALED & WHOLE everything will line up for Natalie and my future family . God moved in me! ❤️ #TrustedGod #Matthew7 :7! #PeopleChangeWhenGodIsInvovled 🔐
Jesus said "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." . I experienced a bad #allergyattack that I'm still healing from so I'm revisiting the topic of #highhistaminefoods . . ⠀⠀ Not sure what histamine sensitivity looks like? Ever get a runny nose while or after eating? Do you sneeze a few minutes after finishing a meal? Or certain fruits you can't eat? You may be sensitive to the histamine levels of the food you're eating. . The solution? Avoiding foods high in histamines all together. Also, maybe chewing your food more.👌🏽 . Over the next several weeks, I'll attempt to eliminate plant based foods high in histamines from my #diet and eating mostly fresh #lowhistamine produce and will see what a difference it makes. . ⠀⠀ My journey continues... ✌🏾& 🙏🏽 . #allergies #histamines #plantbased #staystrong #healthmatters #lowhistaminediet #foodallergy #drugfree #healthyliving #healthjourney #healingfoods #scripture #scriptureoftheday #faith #walkwithchrist #askseekknock #matthew7
One of My Favorite Verses Ask and it shall be Giving to You!! #matthew7 :8 #fromthebookofmatthew #dailyverse #stayfed #godsword
I have seen Gods faithfulness and comforting hand this week. Though we've faced several trials lately with husbands school and closing on our home, He has repeatedly shown us His goodness. Today we close on our new home where we will raise our little boy. We're still facing obstacles today. As I sit in @wendys and listen to "I will sing of your mercies that lead me through valleys of sorrow to rivers of joy" I am reminded to rest in Him. #matthew7 #godisgood #newhouse #trials #askanditisgiven
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. - Matthew 7:14 It only takes a little while to realize that life is hard. We can find a way to live an amazing life, but only through Jesus. He’s the one who makes it possible. Are you finding your way with him today? #Narrow #TheWay #Matthew7
A scripture that speaks to me today is Matthew 7:7-8, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” As I read this It reminds me to talk to my Heavenly Father about anything and everything. It reminds me to ask, seek and knock until something happens. It also reminds me that the answers come in God’s time. Have you asked God to guide you with your challenges today? Have you gone to his word and sought out his wisdom? Have you ignored opportunities because you are afraid to knock? He’s waiting to hear from you, let him help you today. . #LisaBallan #GodsWord #AskSeekKnock #Matthew7 #Getintheword #FavoriteScripture #Beinprayer #StudyHisWord

"Why do you see the SPECK in your brother's eye, but not notice the LOG in your own eye?" #matthew7 #nojudgmentzone 🚫
Judging Others 1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces 👆 #WORDSOFTHEWISE #CLARITY #MATTHEW7#LESSONS & #BLESSINGS #FAITH

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.” Matthew‬ ‭7:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬ ———————————————————————— #photography #rocks #naturephotography #wanderlust #adventure #naturewalk #aesthetic #art #shotoniphone #iphone8photography #goexplore #wanderlust #getlost #bibleverse #christianposts #scripture #matthew7 #solid
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:24-27 _______________ If Christ be not present there is no church. The foundation is wanting; and where there is no foundation, the higher the building, or the more glorious its appearance, the sooner it will fall. #JesusChrist #God #GlorytoGod #Matthew7 #johnowen
Here is a real manifestation of “ask, and it shall be given you”. Photo on top was from my vision board 8yrs ago when I had a seemingly unrealistic dream of a house for my lil family, and I cut out pics of a kitchen and a master bath that I liked in a magazine. Photo on the bottom is the bathroom of the house I ended up buying 2yrs later. I didn’t realize I had received exactly what I asked & prayed for until last year when I stumbled across the old photo. Time to start expanding my ask! What’s your testimony? #testimony #matthew7 #askandyoushallreceive #manifestation

And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” #Matthew7 :24-27 In times of hardship, don't quit.

Over 200 children came together to learn how to be "Powered Up Charged Up, Christian children on the go". Like the disciples in the upper room, the focus was on Holy Spirit and He met with them. With a team of over 40 dedicated children's ministry workers from across Jamaica, God was gloried. #PoweredUp #ChargedUp #ChristianChildren #OnTheGo #HolySpiritAtWork #CmConnect #Jumpstart3 #Matthew7 :24-25 #Joel2 :28
So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. #thegoldenrule #Matthew7 :12
God gave us discernment for a reason! If it looks like a pig, and it talks like a pig, it's probably a pig! #truthrevealed #alwayslying #pigpen #matthew7 #lovebombing
Judge not so that you will not be judge,#Matthew7 :1,Luke6:37
“Truly Solid or Hopeful Bluff:” I did not realize that I have been TERRIBLE at keeping this up! I’ve been hopelessly distracted, and I sincerely apologize to those that have been craving more study...I certainly need it! With that aside, let us pick up from the “ComParables” series with a classic between a wise builder and a foolish builder. Jesus provided this analogy as the conclusion to His Sermon on the Mount. The pinnacle of His message was for all listeners to either abide or avoid His Words, and He describes both outcomes. The kid’s church song “The Wise Man & The Foolish Man” was inspired by this parable (link below). A home’s architecture needs to set on a firm surface, or the framework fails at holding itself upright and will collapse. Jesus reiterates that those that pay attention to His Words can withstand destruction (Isa 40:8, Matt 6:19-21). Yes, rock does wear away, but it takes a LONG time to completely disintegrate. Christ is the firm foundation that defies the crashing tribulations. Beach homes need MORE solidity because of sand’s “shifting” nature. Jesus warns that those who don’t heed His Words construct their hope in uncertainty. Sand may feel solid under bare feet; however, waves erode it FASTER compared to rock. Without Christ, it’s like sand battling water, and it will quickly break down. And then one wonders why life is full of heartache, shambles, and unfulfillment. How come the world is basically imploding in on itself? Because it neglects Christ as their foundation. God is not merely our emergency “shout out” or lifeline in hardships. It’s like trying to put a bandaid on a leaky pipe with the expectation that it will outlast time. God should be at the core to ALL aspects of who you are, because that’s how He builds you up within (Psa 51:10-12). We don't have to live in spiritual homelessness. Jesus can be a part of our blueprints of life, but we have to LET Him be the master builder (Psa 73:21-28). I encourage you to listen to my favorite Shaun Groves song, “Welcome Home” (link below). Also read Eph 3:14-21, my yearning prayer for all the word to know: for Christ to dwell in our hearts and be firmly founded in God’s love. God bless❤
I go to God asking him the same thing over and over and over again until I get an answer. The same way that my son comes to me until I give him what he wants😂😂😂 Moral of the Story: NEVER GIVE UP! KEEP ASKING. KEEP SEEKING. KEEP KNOCKING. #Iknowmyfather 🙏 #Matthew7 :7 #Luke18 :1-8 #Iamhisfavoritedaughter #Daddy 'sGirl❤

#matthew7 :18-20 I love how Jesus talks about there is no way a good tree can produce bad fruit and vice versa!! If we are truly God's children we will only bear good fruit!! Yes we will fall and make mistakes. This is where #TheGardener will trim and prune us after we repent (and yes it is painful when we are pruned). After examining ourselves and have taken the log out of our eyes (Matt 7:5), Jesus warns us to examine other trees to make sure they are #producinggoodfruit . John MacArthur says there are 3 types of primary "spiritual fruit" to examine. 1) Character (2 Peter 2) 2) Creed (Hebrews 5:14) 3) Converts (like father like son) We are to examine those around us not to judge them but to keep ourselves from being deceived by false prophets or those who claim to be followers of Christ but do walk the walk or talk the talk and that could lead us astray. Are you producing good fruit? Have you surrounded yourself with people who are producing good fruit? #whoareyoulettinginfluanceyou

It's a good thing to dream big dreams and want good things! It's not okay when those dreams and things have you. • Our identity is not found in our jobs, relationship status or finances. I see this happen far too often when the loss of temporary things we root our identity in shatters our security and feeling of purpose. It's a dangerous anchor to trust in. • True contentment comes when our identity is rooted in Christ. Only He can fill us with purpose, joy and fulfillment that is never shaken and never wavers. When the things of the world come and go, our hope is built on the Rock and that is where contentment is found. • We are #MadeForMore believe that♡ • #Contentment #BuiltOnTheRock #GoodNewsGirl #TableForOne #JustGiveMeJesus #RootedInChrist #DaughterOfTheKing #Matthew7 :24-27
Jesus Said: “ ‘LOVE The Lord Your God With ALL Your Heart And With ALL Your Soul And With ALL Your Mind.’ (Watch This... Don't Miss It!-->) THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREATEST COMMANDMENT. And The SECOND Is Like It: ‘LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ ALL The Law And The Prophets Hang On These TWO COMMANDMENTS.”~ (Matthew 22:37‭-‬40)~Amen! Friends, Jesus Told Us That We Will Recognize His TRUE Followers By The Way They Live Their Lives In This World.~(Matthew 2:17-20)~Amen! If We Truly Love GOD And Our Fellow Man We Will Show It By Our Attitudes Towards Them ... By How We Treat Them.~(Matthew 22:39, Luke 6:46, Romans 13:10)~Amen!

These verses in Matthew 7 hit me fresh today. Jesus is wrapping up His famous “Sermon on the Mount” and is talking about prayer. — I was drawn to the word “persistent.” Notice that this word is attached to asking, seeking, and knocking. — I was reminded again to NEVER GIVE UP! Persist in prayer, friends. Your Father is ready to give “wonderful gifts” to those who ask PERSISTENTLY. — “WILL get,” “WILL discover,” & “WILL find” are promises to those who persist in prayer. — Keep ASKING, SEEKING, & KNOCKING! I’m going to!🙏🙌💪 — #prayer #persistence #persistinprayer #matthew7 #sermononthemount #askseekknock #answeredprayers

I love it when God's creation gives me a chance to teach my children something about Him! These little mussels gave me that exact opportunity. My girls were fascinated with them! They touched and felt them and tried to pick them off the rocks but they found out that they were stuck on there really good! This made me think of the wise man who built his house upon the rock. I explained how just like they are living firm on the rock and are safe from the ocean waves when they come crashing back in, so will we be safe if we build our lives on the Lord Jesus Christ! . Matthew 7:24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” . . . #matthew7 #creation #godscreation #christianparenting #christianmoms #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolmoms #christianblogger #faithblogger #biblicalparenting #alaska #seward #oceanlife #oceanphotography #sealife #seaphotography #sewardalaska #tidepool #tides #tidesout #teach #shellfish #mussels #xtratuf #magicalfamilymoments #alaskanfamilies #pnwkids
