Wow! The fact that he is MY God and OUR God is just unexplainable!! The Lord promises to take care of us and never let us go. Though I’m reminded of this so often, when trials and temptations come, it sometimes takes me time to see just how great and in control MY GOD is of everything. †
Lord, I thank you because you have promised that if we let you, you’ll be OUR GOD. No matter how rough times are, we know that you will always be there. I’m sorry if we often take your blessings for granted, if we don’t manage to discern those prints that you leave behind. I ask that you may help us always Let Go and Let YOU work your way in us and in whatever situation we may face!! As always, I pray that you may bless your people, wherever they may be, and allow us to keep on searching for you-that you may perfect until that moment we meet you in heaven. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen. †
We are so blessed to have this powerful word on IDENTITY from our special guest this week @cath.pthomas (@_graceforgrace_ ). Watch as she reflects on John 5 and explains to us the depth of this passage.
This woman is truly a warrior of God and we know God is going to use her to do AMAZING things to further His Kingdom!
We hope you enjoy this awesome video and that the message touches your heart the way it touched ours!
If you haven’t done so yet, go follow @cath.pthomas@_graceforgrace_ to add more Jesus into your IG feed!!
I personally have always taken a more libertarian stance on this, but know FOR A FACT that many of us (Christians) have strong beliefs about abortion and I understand why we as a group generally vote the way we do. I am not here to shame anyone and tell you that you're "sexist" or "for the patriarchy" or any of that. I know youare honestly just trying to do what you believe is right.
What I will tell you however, is that we are being manipulated. The same way that we criticize those dems who make promises to improve conditions in the inner cities every election cycle to guarantee the urban vote and meanwhile none of those promises get fulfilled--yeah its the SAME thing. Except its the GOP courting the Christian vote... you see? Both parties suck like that lol
All I am imploring to you is to keep an OPEN mind this coming election cycle when weighing out the candidates. Look at all of their policies. Review their track record. Compare their words to their actions. Take it all in, so you stop getting played.
Today I read Numbers 36:1-Deuteronomy 1:46, Luke 5:29-6:11, Psalm 66:1-20 and Proverbs 11:24-26.
In Deuteronomy Moses appoints leaders from each tribe. The population was so large it was hard to handle all the problems. So the Lord told them to pick some well respected men from every tribe who are knowledgeable and understanding. They will be be appointed as leaders.
The men chosen served as judges and officials. The judges were responsible for hearing the cases of fellow Israelites. They were to be impartial in all their judgements. They also had to fair when making decisions. They listened to cases of the poor and the rich. Any cases that were difficult were to go to the Lord. For he would handle them.
In Luke Levi holds a banquet in Jesus’ honor with tax collectors and other guests. The Pharisees were not happy with who Jesus and the disciples were eating with. They wanted to know why they were eating with tax collectors and sinners.
Jesus didn’t judge anyone or turn anyone away. He ate with tax collectors and sinners. For he wasn’t called to the righteous but he was called to the sinners and the sick. He helped everyone.
Whenever I’m not sure how to act I always ask What Would Jesus Do? WWJD. I grew up with WWJD so I would make smart decisions and be a good person. Jesus was such a good person. I strive to always be good and to not be judgmental.
Went to the mall today to exchange the Birks for another pair i reserved in a different size. I walk in to what I thought was a Nordstrom and they couldn’t find the shoes under my name, so I was there for about 40 minutes, and we’re all really confused, eventually, I find out that I’m actually not in Nordstrom, I have been in a Lord and Taylor for the past hour looking for shoes that THEY DONT EVEN HAVE. I AM AN IDIOT. (got the birks tho🤩 #wwjd)
So I have a question. Ive refused to put my head in the sand...but on days like today...where I spent a delightful morning with M and A at an Energy Healing Conference..to then come home and scroll through todays news...I quickly become rilled up and angry and depressed. Do I turn it all off? I am completely powerless to the going ons in the Bronx, where a defenseless old lady on the subway gets kicked in the face repeatedly by a thug. Or the political crap in Washington is maddening beyond belief...not to mention all the terrible, horrific mass shootings in the world. There seems to be so much hate and intolerance out there. Do I tune it all out? Isn’t it a responsibly to know what’s going on in the world...even if you find yourself powerless to do a thing about it? How do you deal with all this hatred and unrest? I sleep fine. I’m not the worrying kind, but I don’t know what to do with the sadness and frustration that crops up every time I check in with the world. Suggestion, thoughts?
Remember that although this is true that ones have made a change, there are ones who are playing with Jehovah, His word, and the power of His Holy Spirit. Pray to Jehovah to open your eyes in order for you to see the difference and then believe what HE's showing you.
Bright Lights is the DVD dealing with Carrie being Bipolar and how her famous mother, Debbie Reynolds handled it. Carrie's brother stated that their mom saw other family members of loved ones with some sort of mental illness give tough loved and lost their loved one through suicide. Debbie Reynolds decided she'd just show love towards Carrie and remind her that she was loved.
