“Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s your friend, mother, father, personal pastor, family pastor, work colleague-NO ONE sis please
If you don’t find him attractive you don’t find him attractive. It’s not by force. It’s either there or it’s not. What you need to understand is there’s nothing wrong with being selective about your choice in a partner
Just make sure you can equally offer what you’re looking for. If you want honesty-stop being dishonest. If you want a man on fire for God then also become on fire for God. If you want a man that has a vision-sis what’s your vision
Sit down and truly write down the vision so that it is plain of what you’re waiting for in a man and what you desire and have to offer
This would also make you more confident in turning down that date because you know he doesn’t fit what God has told you about your husband neither does he exhibit any of the qualities you’re attracted to
And there’s a difference between worldly attraction and godly attraction. Let me just say this: when you come to Christ a lot of stuff you once found attractive in a man will change to suit what God has fashioned for you to be attracted to and it happens with the opposite sex as well
Which is why the more you grow in your faith you’ll find your taste will also start to change in men and it’ll be more specific in a God way so ladies that’s my tip for today-let God guide your choices not your loved ones-they mean well but they don’t know what God has told you .

CONTEND FOR THE FAITH-
Can't stop thinking about this small part of scripture today, my spirit is on fire!...how powerful this is- Jude 1:3 tells us to contend for the faith! We as believers are the guardian's and protectors of the faith!
We have been commissioned to strive and fight to contend for the faith from those who seek to twist and pervert the grace of our God. What an honor and privilege.
These words written some two thousand years ago echo and ring as true today as ever. God is not whoever or whatever people want Him to be; He is the great I AM the alpha and omega, beginning and end.
In these times of confusion, disary and twistedness- God remains steadfast and we must remain steadfast in Him. We must cling to Him and His word for life, light and boldness.
We must contend for the faith 🔥

this one is my favorite.
In just a few short months my first born son turns 8. The pregnancy was scary for me. When you’ve miscarried before your senses are heightened to all that could go wrong versus right. He was a 2 vessel cord baby ( 1% of pregnancies experience this) and he had fluid on his brain all the way up to 36 weeks of pregnancy.
My boy finally arrived on Dec. 9th. It was a long grueling 8 days in the NICU. Test after test. Words of hopelessness spoken over him. He’s deaf. He has a hole in his heart. He is 1 in 250 babies who are born with transposition of the great arteries. Genetic testing done to rule out XY & Z. His tiny, underdeveloped ears had no ear canals. He was the first baby born in the hospital with bilateral microtia atresia. I remember the rollercoaster of emotions my husband @_storyseller_
and I experienced. The unknowns. The need for answers to it all. The cry sessions from our hospital room. The visits to the NICU every 3 hours to feed, hold, and admire this precious gift from God.
I’d like to say it’s been smooth sailing since, but I’d be lying. As he grew, I noticed a change in his behavior which would send us to a developmental pediatrician at the age of 10months. The diagnosis—PDD-NOS. A baby boy who has fought so hard would have to fight a little bit harder. A mama and daddy who were weary would have to pray a little harder and cling a little tighter to the only One would could provide the comfort, peace, and rest we were longing for. He was our source of hope. He was the light in the darkness. He was the WAYMAKER when all seemed lost. He was the miracle worker we needed to intervene when our weary hearts couldn’t handle one more diagnosis. He was the promise keeper who said in Jeremiah 29:11 “for I know the plans I have for you, plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” He was the life giver and we trusted that He would sustain this life. Fast forward all these years later. A thriving 2nd grader who has been mainstreamed since the end of kindergarten, a boy who is not just my son but also my brother in Christ...cont’d in comments.
We look for God in so many places, but the universe itself is a metaphor for His power and existence.
Pope Francis reflects on this in, Laudato Si and talks about the interdependence of creatures, how one completes and compliments the other. We need only open our eyes to see the everlasting power of God. “When we can see God reflected in all that exists, our hearts are moved to praise the Lord for all His creatures and to worship in union with them...” (Laudato Si, Par 87)

What is first in your life?
If you’re a Christian you might instinctively say, “JESUS” or “GOD” but does the way you live your life reflect this answer?
Ask yourself this question and answer honestly, “what is first in my life,?” Could it be your kids, your husband, your home, your job, even your church? All of these things are great, and God wants us to have them but when they become first in your life that’s when we have a problem 😱😱
Whatever is first in your life is what you have made your god! That’s the truth! Examine your life to see what it is that you have made a god and pray that God will readjust the order in your life so that you can have Him as the main focus! It won’t be easy but it’ll be worth it!
This woman has been such an inspiration in my life. In her own words, she planted a seed in me many years ago by taking me to church. Along came some great leaders who watered it. And God is multiplying it. I don’t give her enough love and thanks for being a huge support my entire life. So I want to make this appreciation post to dedicate to the woman who exemplified to me all along what it looks like to put God first regardless of the cost. I love you Patty and always will 💜😘🙏🏼 (ps: IDK where I would be without you or God.)#thankyousomuch #auntylove #godlywoman
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing will be impossible.
FAITH=pistis in the greek and is defined as faith, belief, trust, confidence; fidelity, faithfulness.
BELIEVE= pisteuo in the greek and is defined as belief, faith, trust in, I am entrusted with, being persuaded, the believing that leads to/proceeds from God's inbirthing of faith.
Facing what looks like the impossible on today? Israel faced the impossible at the Red Sea and God parted the sea for them to walk through.
How do we go on when the possible looks impossible? How do we convince ourselves that our impossible situation is possible? We do it by faith in believing that with God all things are possible.
Hebrews 11:6-And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Scripture declares in Hebrews 11:1-2 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old obtained a good report.
Jesus declares to the rich young ruler in Luke 18:27-“What is impossible with men is possible with God.” If we look through the rear view mirror of our lives, we too can see where the "IMPOSSIBLE" met God and our impossibles were turned into "POSSIBLES" with God.
Today trust God by faith, believing that in your impossible situation, you serve a God who can make the impossible in your life possible. 👑🕊 Reference: Debra Aiken "Christian Daily Devotionals #BibleJournaling

Met some R$CH CITIŻENS 🏅🌎 we discussed we hate messy b.i.t.c.h.e.s. 🏁
Antes do seu nascimento, quando você ainda estava na barriga da sua mãe, eu o escolhi e o separei.... (Jeremias 1:5)
Deus nos fez seres únicos!
Você não é igual a ninguém e ninguém é igual a você. Saiba que sua vida não é obra do acaso e que o Senhor pensou você em todos os aspectos. Pense em uma missão que o Senhor confia a ti, esta missão tem exatamente as tuas características, somente você pode executá-la com maestria e excelência, porque o Senhor pensou em você para realizá-la. Alguém pode até executá-la caso você não aceite, mas será realizada de forma totalmente diferente a forma que você faria, segundo as características de cada um.
Quando você imita alguém, de forma automática está anulando todas as qualidades que o próprio Deus colocou em você.
Presta atenção no que vou falar e não interpreta errado, por favor. "Quanto mais você for você mesmo na sua essência, mais estará em Deus." Pelo novo nascimento o Senhor te refez a sua imagem e semelhança, te devolveu o que você tinha perdido lá no pecado de Adão. "Pelo que, se alguém está em Cristo, nova criatura é; as coisas velhas já passaram; eis que tudo se fez novo." 2 Corintios 5:17

Wait on God.
Stop waiting on yourself.
Stop allowing your flesh to bully you around. Sis! Stop questioning this wait period. Stop just looking around and doing nothing. You must wait with purpose. There is so much to learn and explore. There is so much adventure now. Don't think that when you get married everything will be perfect. You have to stop making marriage your ultimate god and everything else is secondary. God wants you to see every single moment in your life as precious. God wants you to dive into his powerful secrets and revelations now. Some of us are praying for certain things and we don't even really know what in the world we are really praying for. Marriage is serious,but so is your single season. You have to get whole sis. You can't expect your husband to make you whole. Get whole now by correcting your soul. Getting into the Bible and establishing healthy friendships. Go out and pursue what God has put on your heart with his guidance. Stop being caught up in fantasy and start establishing God fearing reality now. Your destiny is now. Your purpose is now. Your life is amazing now. Work on your relationship with God and your character.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope.
"The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I have hope in Him." The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the person who seeks Him. It is good that he waits silently For the salvation of the LORD.

Kesaksian Stephanus & Erlyn. Wonder 22 Sept 2018
Tahun ini memasuki tahun ke 4 pernikahan mereka. Menikah di 18 Oktober 2014. Menantikan keturunan sejak awal menikah karena dari awal sudah ingin memiliki keturunan.
Sudah mencoba cek dan treatment di beberapa dokter di Jakarta, Penang & Malaysia. Namun belum kunjung berhasil. Telah lakukan 2 kali inseminasi & 1 kali IVF/ bayi tabung. Akhirnya Tuhan menjawab doa dan penantian mereka selama ini pada Maret 2018. Mereka sukses IVF ke 2 & Erlyn dinyatakan positif hamil.
Sebelum doa mereka ini akhirnya dijawab, mereka sempat didoakan oleh beberapa hamba Tuhan . Saat didoakan, hamba Tuhan ini bilang kalau Erlyn harus membereskan masalah di dalam hatinya, rasa kesal/ kecewa yang masih ada & melepaskan pengampunan. Lalu saat itu ia melepaskan pengampunan dan pemberesan hati. Setelah didoakan ia merasa lega. Erlyn mengaku bahwa ia sblmnya memang suka memendam perasaan & mood swing. Proses demi proses ia lewati & semakin hari ia menjadi semakin baik lagi & dapat mengontrol mood nya. Menurutnya, penting untuk membereskan hati kita jika ingin memiliki keturunan & masa menanti ini berarti mereka sedang dipersiapkan menjadi orang tua yg baik untuk anak mereka nanti.
Selain itu Stephanus & Erlyn juga menjaga pola makan hidup sehat untuk memiliki keturunan. Mereka tidak merokok / minum minuman beralkohol. Mereka juga percaya bahwa untuk dikaruniai anak memang keputusan di tangan Tuhan, namun kita sebagai manusia hendaknya tidak boleh diam saja dan menanti, apalagi ketika kita ingin memiliki keturunan. Kita hrs berusaha & berdoa. Maka dari itu mereka sepakat untuk mencoba beberapa program hamil. Mereka percaya bahwa dokter juga dipakai oleh Tuhan untuk perpanjangan tanganNya. Kita boleh berusaha namun pada akhirnya harus tetap percaya kepada Tuhan bahwa waktuNya yg terbaik.
Erlyn kini telah hamil 8 bulan. Kita doakan semoga proses persalinan lancar, sehat selalu & keluarga ini terus menjadi berkat buat banyak orang. Amen 🙏🏻 #ttcwithgod #nothingisimpossible #miracle #womenofgod #testimony #ttccommunity #ttcsisters
