The Lord layed this on my heart to share! As a women it's not an easy topic especially the older I get.
This verse has held me together and I am beyond grateful to the women of God that shared it with our team not knowing how much it would impact me!
We all have desires of our heart and for me one of those is the desire to be married and have a family. Though in this season God has not opened that door.
I am coming to a place where I am accepting it and grateful to be able to give my time and energy in other areas.
There is extremely hard days though when you want it to work but have to fully realize and trust God's plan. Instead of trying to control or push up the process like I have.
Singleness is a season of grow which at time has felt lonely then at times I can look back and I am beyond amazed at all God has done!
The Lord promises to give us the desires of our hearts but it's not always the same timeframe we have in mind.
This verse sums up this journey for me waiting patiently even though that is excruciating at times. Then being strong to do so and wait for the perfect one God has planned. To taking heart and trusting God's will by being patient!! #waiting#relationships#livingbrighter#godstiming
Hola amigos instagrameros 🥰
Se que he estado muy ausente con contenido pero realmente estos días que me e tomado han sido para meditar, revaluar, y tomar decisiones sobre las metas que tengo a corto, mediano y largo plazo. ✨
Pero estoy súper feliz 🤩 de que realmente los tiempos de Dios ✝️ son perfectos y que cuando le entregas a él cualquier tipo de problema, idea 💡 y preocupación ÉL simplemente se encarga de que pase lo mejor para uno. ¡Estoy súper emocionada 😁 por lo que se viene este año❗️Se vienen Muchos viajes, aprendizaje, networking, aventuras, tropiezos pero sobre todo muchas levantadas con la frente muy en alto ✋ contra cualquier reto que nos toque derribar. 🚨
AY ‼️no puedo de la emoción enserio ya quiero que sepan todo, todito 🙆🏽♀️ PERO aún no es el momento de contárselo, solo les pido que me manden sus mejores vibras 🌸 y me escriban mensajitos de apoyo para que todo salga al 💯. Los quiere por siempre,

Seriously...who knew that this girl, the one who hates running and breathing hard and doesn't sweat much in general, would be the same one who now wakes up CRAVING her sweat session and starting her day by getting her blood pumping?! As my mom would say... Will wonders never cease? 😂
I have finally found the combination of tools that works perfectly FOR ME. We all have different situations and pieces of life that we have to manipulate to get a bit of time to focus on our health. What I love about these tools is that ANY of us can modify them to work for whatever our schedule or overall needs are. I've watched so many of my clients have success because they made their combination of healthy life tools THEIR OWN. They use them in ways that work specifically for them. It's made ALL the difference for me, and has been especially powerful for all of us in our team to watch how others are finding success by individualizing what we NEED. And with our team spirit, there's nothing like cheering each other on when someone else has a healthy WIN.
SO. MUCH. FUN. 😍
Support and customizable proven tools?!? Lots of others seeing progress & success?? Maybe sweat truly is the secret sauce!! 😉💦✨
This world continues to become more smoke, mirrors, and screens. Don't compare me to nothing other than the creator's image in whom I was made from. Any other man (male/female) is irrelevant to who I am and how I was formed. Forget what any man has to say if it ain't in align with what the word say. Don't hit me with any one liners for my truth comes in threes, so back your words up before you come step to me. #godstiming#godsword#godslove#godspromise not quite #ripe yet.
Suppose the foot says, “I am not a hand. So I don’t belong to the body.” By saying this, it cannot stop being part of the body. 16 And suppose the ear says, “I am not an eye. So I don’t belong to the body.” By saying this, it cannot stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, how could it hear? If the whole body were an ear, how could it smell? 18 God has placed each part in the body just as he wanted it to be. 19 If all the parts were the same, how could there be a body? 20 As it is, there are many parts. But there is only one body.
Feet are part of our foundation. Yes, the human body is a wonderful machine. The fact that any one of these devices exists is a complete demonstration that they are the work of an intelligent and skilful designer, God Himself. ‘So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created He them’ (Genesis 1:27). Truly I tell you, if anyone does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child, he will never enter it." "Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger" (Psalms 8:2)

It’s not unlike God to speak promises, dreams and plans far more in advance than what we think we should be waiting for them.
It’s a hard place to exist in for years at a time, still holding onto the hope of what you feel He’s spoken and trusting Him to do it.
Abraham and Sarah know all too well what we feel, promised a son and then a whole lot of waiting. Too much in their opinion.
“Maybe we’re supposed to be doing something? God is taking too long, He must have forgotten. Let’s help Him.” And as we know, they wound up with an Ishmael. A forced answer, but not God’s.
God was still faithful and provided that son they were promised, but they had to wait, and often we will too.
Our act of faith is daily surrender, to refuse to strive, manipulate or attempts to strong arm the process. God is asking us to be committed to Him, not a calling or dream.
He asks us to lay down our wills, our ways, our plans and to be faithful to whatever He is putting in front of us.
And when God says, “now”; walls fall, seas dry up, and seemingly impossible births happen and we’re all left in awe of the one who did it. #walkingreflections
Never thought I’d be joining a women’s Bible study but I need God now more than ever. Thankful to some friends I met through Joshua’s school to invite and include me in the Wednesday morning lessons. Today was about waiting on Gods timing and don’t rush things. And trust that I will find a job. Hopefully there is a reason He is making me wait. 🙏 even though I don’t understand why. Hoping the answer will be known soon. I have had a consistent job for 12+ years and never thought I would be here but here I am. #iamworthit#praying#godstiming
Admittedly, patience is a virtue that I am actively working on. When I want something, especially something I feel God has placed in my heart, I want it yesterday! But, I am learning to trust God's perfect timing. Just because it doesn't happen immediately does not mean you should give up. If you want something badly enough, you will wait for it. The things that you have to wait for are often the sweetest. Just give it to God and learn to trust the process. The two greatest powers humans possess are faith and patience! #patience#patienceisavirtue#trusttheprocess#godstiming#godsperfecttiming#godsplan#worththewait
As a child, I never stopped dreaming of the day I would fall in love. I imagined my first date, first kiss, and what kind of dress I would wear on my wedding day. I always has a certain quality that I deemed would signal the perfect guy. In grade school, I believed he had to be handsome—if he didn’t look like Zac Efron, forget about it. In high school, I knew my perfect guy would be humorous like Louis Tomlinson. If I was laughing and smiling when I was around him, he was the one. I watched rom-coms, constantly waiting for the warm, fuzzy feeling to flutter in my stomach. I would listen to love songs, hoping to dream about my true love. My last prayer every night was that God would just let me meet my future spouse now—I was seventeen, what was He waiting for? Fast forward one year, and I am still single. I still have never had my first date, or my first kiss, or even held hands with a guy. I am still waiting, but not while watching romantic comedies or playing love songs. In this one year, I have learned something very important about myself. All those years, I waited for a boy to make me feel whole, when only Jesus could do that. The lightbulb in my head didn’t turn on immediately. It took a lot of mistakes, a lot of struggling, and a lot of prayers sent up to heaven to truly understand my singleness. What I once saw as a flaw in me is now something I am so grateful for. I’ve reflected a lot on God’s timing recently. This is just another moment where His timing has been perfect. I needed to find myself in Christ before I found my identity in a boy. I needed to put Jesus first in my heart before I tried to love someone else. I needed to learn that the vocation of marriage is not all about having someone to kiss, but rather being partners committed to leading each other to heaven. These days, my priorities have changed quite a bit. I no longer want a man who I think is attractive because of his looks or his humor. Now, attractiveness to me is a man who puts God first in his life. Someone who glorifies God in all that they say and do. For that, I will wait as long as God wants me to. .
There will always be beauty and ugliness in our lives ♥️ Some people opt to only show the beauty, others choose to victimize themselves by exposing only the ugly parts. But the truth is, there's no perfect life! We are all this mix of both, this is real life! In the age of social media, it's very easy to be deceived by what we see. So let's start 2️⃣ 0️⃣ 1️⃣ 9️⃣ with the right perspective ✨
Behind every beautiful picture, there’s a story that you don’t know everything about. The beautiful moments, the smiles, and perfect angles are just part of the story, I guess this picture is the living proof of it...🤷🏼♀️ #perfectlyimperfectlife❣️#lifeisgood#godisgreat
I shared a Word of the Lord last month regarding your future husband and children you have been praying and waiting for. God said for those of you who are positioned in His presence, it will not be long before your manifestation is here. BEING POSITIONED IN HIS PRESENCE IS KEY. He said that you think it is going to be long because it has been long...but not so. Your connection will be swift, the courtship will be swift and it will look to others as if you met and got married to your purpose partner overnight. Here is the scripture reference:
Amos 9:13-15 The Message (MSG)
13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.
They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.
They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.
They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”
God, your God, says so. .

My babies are getting awards today at school so I must be doing something right. Ha! Also, this new program has me SORE AF.
Most people get to the soreness part of their fitness journey and STOP! It's ok to take rest days but you have to learn the difference between soreness that you need to push through and signs of exhaustion that you need to recover from. Soreness occurs when your muscles are required to work differently than they are used to. It means that you are doing things OUTSIDE of your comfort zone (which is always a good thing!) What you need during those painful moments is to KEEP MOVING. Take a walk, do some yoga, drink water, take a warm shower...etc. You cant stop and wait for the soreness to go away before jumping back in.
In the same way, the "soreness of life" is the anger, disappointment, resentment, bitterness, and PAIN that we all go through. It occurs when you do things outside of your comfort zone. When you operate and function DIFFERENTLY than you are used to. Most people take ONE foot outside of the norm and expierence the discomfort. They pull away and STOP growing and moving forward because they see it as a sign that they "just arent meant" to have or do the thing they want. Instead of self reflection, prayer, learning, and fasting --- THEY STOP and it perpetuates the cycle they were trying to break out of in the first place. Dont stop. Take your time. Modify your life. Work THROUGH the pain. As you do, you'll find that you are becoming STRONGER working thru the soreness than if you had avoided it altogether -XO Gabs
Tonight is just the beginning of something new for me.
I am embarking on a 6 week journey of AIR....what is AIR you might ask? It’s The Academy of Influence and Reformation.
“San Diego’s Academy of Influence & Reformation (AIR) is a fast-paced immersion designed to saturate you with Kingdom Principles, Kingdom Power, and Kingdom Encounters. We train people like you who are hungry to discover who you are in Christ and why you were created, equipping you with the ability to invade your sphere of influence. We desire to see you transforming those places with God’s truth, power, and love working in and through you.”
It’s so amazing how as you grow and God starts opening doors that He’s been talking to you about for years, something like this would just open up when I was spiritually, mentally and emotionally ready to just dive right in.
This class will not only affect me, it will affect my business, my relationships, and the ministries that God is having me serve, cultivate, start and be a part of.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, it’s not too late to be a part of it! Check out air.awakeningintl.com to learn more. Trust me, this is going to be a journey that is talked about for years to come!

«Do the best you can to live in peace with everyone.» Rom. 12:18
The Bible repeatedly encourages us to pursue peace. But it’s easy to see in this world that there isn’t always a peaceful place. Taking time today to reflect on how we can live at peace with everyone, even when it seems impossible, Romans 12:18 teaches me that even, if we can’t control everything to bring peace, we can control one thing: do our best to seek peace. You can’t control someone else’s anger, but you can control yourself. By controlling your tongue, words, actions, and your behavior, you can encourage peace rather than discord. As believers, we should purposely avoid provoking strife or fighting. When we are hurting, it can be tempting to stir up a crowd or react in the heat of the moment. Better, we should choose to seek peace in disagreements. When someone hurts you, your first reaction will be to seek revenge. But vengeance goes against how the Bible tells us to do. Romans 12:16-19 says: «Live together in peace with each other... If someone does you wrong, don’t try to pay them back by hurting them. Try to do what everyone thinks is right... My friends, don’t try to punish anyone who does wrong to you. Wait for God to punish them with his anger. In the Scriptures the Lord says, “I am the one who punishes; I will pay people back.” Instead of vengeance, make room for peace in the midst of conflict. Go to God in prayer and ask for His help. He is able to give you an unimaginable peace in the midst of your hardships. That peace in difficult situations can only be God-given. I pray that the Lord of peace will give you peace at all times and in every way. Amen
It doesn’t have to feel good for Him to be good.
Let that sink in for just a moment.
All throughout my healing journey there were tons of moments when I didn’t “feel good”. But, that never changed who He was or what His word said about my health.
Our feelings should never be what leads us through our situation or circumstance. [Unless what you feel is directly aligned with Him.] And with Christ in you, you should look different. You should “feel” different. Your response should look different.
Whoever or whatever doesn’t feel good right now doesn’t make Him a Father who doesn’t care, doesn’t know, or isn’t there. That’s the enemy coming to lie to you, steal from you, and deceive you.
Don’t take my word for it, your friends word for it, your pastor’s word for it — take HIS word for it.
Go to His word today and ask, “What does He say about what I feel?”
Happy Wednesday! There are several new faces around here so we thought we would take a minute to introduce ourselves, share our story, and invite you to join us in this journey.
We're the Welborn's, Hunter and Kelly to be specific. We have been married a little over 4 years, together almost 8 years, and proud parents to 2 fur babies. We've always known that we wanted to adopt, regardless of biological children. After some serious nudging from God and lots of prayers, we decided to take that step and started the process this past summer. What a whirlwind ride it has been!
The one thing we have shared with people is how amazed we have been watching God work throughout this entire process. If you don't believe in miracles, come talk with us and we will SHOW you the miracles God has done just in these few short months. Give Him the control and He will do incredible things to bring glory to His name <3
So what's next? We're waiting! Waiting to be matched with our child and then get our travel dates to go to Seoul, South Korea. We have to travel twice so we're excited to be able to experience our child's home country multiple times. We ask that you join us in our journey because, let's be honest, it DOES take a village. We'll have some fundraisers coming up if you would like to participate in that way. Prayers are always needed, welcomed, and appreciated!
Thank you for helping us with #bringinghomebabywelborn 💚#welcomewednesday#babywelborn#momanddadtobe#waiting#southkoreababy#love#godstiming#sogladyouarehere
I’m a firm believer in signs. I have been and always will. You have to be aware to see them sometimes. This was one of those mornings. I was walking and adventuring on my own. I went down some side streets and walked right in front of this. I just stopped immediately when I saw this. From the conversation that was going on in my head it was destiny for me to pass this. My Mom loved hummingbirds so much. I just knew me seeing this wall was meant to be. I needed it right then to. God has a way of knowing right when you need some encouragement. This was right before I was going to our leadership meeting. I miss her all the time, but these events I think always amplifies it. I wish she was her, to be recognized and in the spotlight. She deserved it for all the work she did and the passion that shown thru her. She just always had a light radiating from her. Like I said before I totally believe in signs and I believe she was there with me. There’s been a few hummingbird encounters that are almost surreal. I’m glad I have her and some birds looking out for me. #hummingbird#hummingbirds#everythingisgoingtobeok#signs#signsfromheaven#signsfromabove#travel#godslove#godstiming#godsplan#signsfromtheuniverse#mom#chosenpath#walkingaround#streetart#mural#blessingsfromabove#thumbsup#thankyou#thankyoumom
