Challenge your beliefs about the world. Refine your thoughts.
Create your vision. •
1) Nourish your soul.
Feed your tree. Collect good thoughts only. Raise your conscious by rewiring your subconscious. Ask yourself, where do my thoughts stem from? For example, let’s say you always feel unhappy about your life. Think to yourself, if your life really ‘that’ bad. Most of the time, it isn’t. Think about where you are now and where you are heading - that’s the only way your heading. Plant the seeds now and allow your thoughts to germinate as you grow. •
2) Cut old branches.
Remove all the old and negative energy that has been pulling you down for so long. The past is an idea in your head and it doesn’t DEFINE you, unless you let it. All of the stupid mistakes, the stupid people you used to associate yourself with and the nonsensical advice you’ve been taught is nothing compared to what you have to offer. If you can’t find the light, then shine bright like sun and turn everything brighter - through your presence and your VALUE. Don’t listen to anybody, apart from yourself. Only you can become great, at the cost of letting go of old blocks. •
3) Nourish your Soil.
Cleanse your soul. Are you really living for yourself ? Or, are you living for other people. Learn to find ways to bring better ideas into your life. We live in a age of digital DISTRACTION , but you can utilise it and become DEDICATED to your growth. It sounds cliche, but knowledge is power, however implementing knowledge is true awakening. •
4) Remain grounded.
Oprah said ‘Visualise your highest self, because that is who you’ll become’. Although Oprah @oprah wasn’t given a silver spoon, she still remains humble. I’ve not met her personally, but her vibration appears to be very calm and grounded. I feel she is very grateful for the life she’s created. She’s very open and very awakened. Her spiritual work manifests in her books, her shows and her podcasts. •
It all starts with you. Like a tree stands tall despite facing adversity, realise you’re strong enough to face any obstacle and heighten your mental clarity. •
So blown away by my beautiful ballerina....Bravo you are a beautiful soul that I have the honor to see flourish into a beautiful young lady. Enjoyed every bit of your recital performance. @saraiabowden
Sister, why are you listening to them? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The people that are talking out of their own insecurity about themselves. They have never gone for anything in life that actually takes guts, and they’re telling you that you are a failure for actually trying something and failing.
The people who have succeeded at what you want to do will never tell you that you are a failure, because they’ve failed too and they see your pain. They know what it’s like to be in the midst of this pain called failure. Failure has a lesson to teach you that success never will. So accept the pain in this lesson called failure, but don’t let it destroy your dreams.
For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile. – Elie Wiesel
I decided last minute to hit a Zumba event after work today. I was pretty tired and I didn’t have my workout clothes, I almost just went home but I am so grateful I went. Although I did have to do some quick clearance rack shopping at Dicks sporting goods 😄 I got to see and shake it with so many lovely smiling faces that I haven’t seen in ages. I may be tired but my heart is reenergized ✨💃🏻💖 #gratitude#grace#zumba#love#heartfelt#smile#fitness#fun#joyinthejourney#passion#dowhatyoulove#gracewins#findaway
The conversation of Christianity is one of Christ-formation not behaviour modification. We are not called to upgrade our ways but to receive LIFE. We are called to put on Christ. Changed ways are the fruit, the ROOT is LIFE! The life is CHRIST. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyone is transforming, the issue isn't whether or not one is but who one is transforming into. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus came full of truth and grace. GRACE to qualify us for the LIFE and TRUTH to ensure the manifestation of the LIFE we have been FREELY given. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." This LIBERTY is not given so we can do as we please but so we can BECOME all He REDEEMED us to be!
The removal of sin wasn't the end game but just the pathway to RECONCILIATION - the removal of the separation between man and ABBA FATHER. So now sons of men can become sons of God united in a LOVE relationship with THE FATHER as He always intended.
Efesus 4:7 (TB) Tetapi kepada kita masing-masing telah dianugerahkan kasih karunia menurut ukuran pemberian Kristus.
Karena semua yg bisa dihadapi dalam hidup adalah anugerah Tuhan
This little guy was not “planned” and, to be honest, I was pretty freaked out to find out we were expecting again. I didn’t think I could handle being responsible for ANOTHER human being, much less bear the physical burden of a 10th pregnancy. I’m no spring chicken. 😜 But he’s my lucky #7. 💙 I love him to pieces and now can’t imagine life without him. It’s funny how that happens, right? I believe God gives us the perfect measure of grace when we need it. Not a moment before. If you’re in a season of change - for better or worse - I invite you to stretch your faith and trust that your loving & wise Creator knows what’s up and has your back. ❤️ #lifelessons#seasonsofchange#largefamily#momlife#motherhood 📸: @lucybaehr
There are times when we believe forgiveness doesn’t come with consequences. We think when we forgive then we’re saying an offender should not be punished. You can forgive and still seek justice. “For the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes those he accepts as His child.”
Withholding forgiveness and compassion to punish an offender is a sin. In Psalm 103:8-12, we see that God is a God of compassion: “The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to anger and filled with unfailing love. He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever. He does not punish us for all our sins; He does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. For His unfailing love toward those who fear Him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.”
Micah 7:19 teaches us that once we’ve repented for our sins, God forgives and forgets. We may not have the ability to forget, but we can forgive.
2 Samuel 24:14, ““I’m in a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let us fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is great. Do not let me fall into human hands.””
If God shows sinners compassion, why can’t we?
Tô de regime, quero entrar nessa porta! «“Entrem pela porta estreita, pois larga é a porta e amplo o caminho que leva à perdição, e são muitos os que entram por ela. Como é estreita a porta, e apertado o caminho que leva à vida! São poucos os que a encontram.»
Mateus 7:13-14 NVI
