Have you ever pushed your will on to God? For years I tried to tell God who I needed to be in a relationship with and when that was going to happen. Personally, I had the shortest attention span. God would tell me, wait patiently I have this under control. Within the week I would be taking that control back from God..No, no God, I have this under control. This person is great they just came into my life today and they’re awesome. I believe in my heart this was the person that you sent to me. Wait.. what…? For years I did this, and it wasn’t until recently that God showed me It Is Good. Not the page, but one day as I was praying God showed me It is Good, I got this all under control, if you would only wait patiently. The mate you seek is a radiant beam of sunshine that will illuminate a room with their presence. Someone that has the grace of royalty, and the honor of a samurai. One who wields the word of the bible like a sharp sword that cuts through doubt and fear. The fear of connection and living in one spirit with God. A true prayer warrior that ignites passion for the living God, the eternal King. If you are in a season of desire or craving I humbly ask that you take that to the Lord. We are of flesh, but we do not have to live in it. God has your perfect companion, truly he, or she is the greatest creation God could have put on this planet for You. Wait patiently with a humble heart. Your partner is on the way.
“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”—Romans 8:26 ESV And boy am I grateful for that.
My dream is to someday repurpose a warehouse or industrial building. I would love to create a working office / place to live. There's just something about what a building can tell you. And the architecture of it. 😍 I think in another lifetime, I was an architect. 🤔 or maybe it's just the love of old buildings. 💞 #architecture#architect#warehouse#industrial#repurpose#hardhatandlipstick
The only HATER that your purpose is tied to, is.......YOU. Not one person on this earth can block what God has for you, but you. Stop focusing on who does not like you....who said this and that about you.....etc etc. Why do those things matter? Exactly how can those feelings stop your purpose? If you are focused on what someone has stated about you, or who does not like you, then your focus is not on your purpose, it is on your failure. Jesus would not have made it to The Cross if His focus was on His enemies. His enemies were actually stepping stools that were a part of the purpose, which was to die for our sins. Focus on the man in the mirror. You are your own biggest enemy and supporter. Also.... Maybe some of the things that are said, are true. Maybe there is a valid reason why you are not liked. We ALL have to look at ourselves in order to keep SELF in check. #purposefulmonday#purpose
#authorschallenge2019 Day 18: Journal ▫️ My writing mentor, Francine Rivers, told me to keep a notebook by my bed bc sometimes our best ideas come when we are most relaxed and allow the brain to work things out in its own time. That has been one of the best ideas I’ve ever used. ▫️ Before I was a “writer” I always found that writing on paper released the Holy Spirit to speak to me in a way I could clearly receive. . . . 📸: the beautiful and talented @abbyh44 (Abby Wittler)
We should take all things to God in prayer, even the small things they may seem insignificant to others. He is faithful to listen, and respond according to His will. Need a simple way to track requests and daily prayers? Grab a copy of our prayer journal in the shop!
Warriors, today is Monday. You know it, I know it, we know it. But if you’re already waiting for Friday, you’re doing it wrong. • Lean in closely, because what we’re about to share is important. • God did not create us to exist until our time is up! He didn’t stitch you together, fearfully and wonderfully make you, for a life of mediocrity. • No...He put dreams, desires, and visions in our hearts - in YOUR heart - for a reason. He created you to be a human BEING not a human DOING or EXISTING. • When we chase Him and find out why He put us here, that’s when He can show up in a big way. It’s through Him that all things are possible. • Some people say, “Wake up and chase your goals” but here at Warrior Awakened, we say “Wake up and chase Him” because when you do that, you give Him space to move. • What’s ONE thing you’re doing today to pursue Him? Is it a Bible study? Quiet prayer time? Fasting? Let us know! We love hearing and celebrating with you. 💪🏻💪🏻
Pastor Lisa Kai came out with a bang at the Arise Conference last night. She encouraged us to BE THE LIGHT. These scriptures speak for themselves. Let’s do it warriors. Let’s BE THE LIGHT! . Jesus replied, "My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going. John 12:35 NLT . “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 NIV . “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. . “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ . “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ . “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ . “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ . “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. Matthew 25:1-13 . #lisakai#arise19
What is better than food and friendship? @mariagrandayoga 😘😊 Me and Maria met in our yoga teacher training a little over a year ago. When I met her, we immediately clicked. I loved her easy going spirit and kindness. She is so warm and easy to talk to. It’s funny because I found out she is also a woman of faith. This time hasn’t been easy for me. Lately I feel like I’ve been changing so much. I’ve been letting go of people who are walking down a different path. But I have to keep reminding myself that this ok! Its wise to choose your friends carefully. 👀 And I am so lucky to have Maria as my friend. This is a friendship I will hold onto! ☺️Proverbs 12:26
The same God that knows the stars by name and holds the oceans back knows the number of hairs on our heads. He cares about us that deeply. He knows us that intimately. There is nothing we can hide from Him— and that isn’t something to be afraid of but rather, to embrace. He knows everything about us and still chooses to love us. No flaw, sin, addiction, habit, or thought is too much to Jesus. He looks past it and loves us. Who can compare to Him?
Just some verses from 2 John 🙂 2 John v 3 "Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the son of the Father, in truth and love." . . . 2 John v 6 "This is love: that we walk according to His commands. This is the command as you have heard it from the beginning: that you walk in love." . . . 2 John v 9 Anyone who does not remain in Christ's teaching but goes beyond it does not have God. The one who remains in that teaching, this one has both the Father and the Son.
How does this empty square make you feel? No, but really… . Why does this simple white square make us squirm inside as we scroll by? Why do we feel the the constant need for content, for noise, for perpetual words & action? . Just a little food for thought this Monday morning 😉. . #livetodaywellco
We are all in what is called the race of life, pursuing one aspiration or the other. But how well one performs in a race, is dependent on a number of factors, primarily how physically fit you are, because a race is mostly about physical effort. There is an alternative however, which is to win the race of life not using your effort alone, but having the Big Man, run the race for you. You will still have to exert some effort, but it’s like driving a car, where the engine does the work of propelling the vehicle and you just sit behind the wheel doing very little in comparison. This my friend is called: G-race, where the G stands for God. So this week will it be race as usual or G-race. You decide! #raceorgrace
I deep cleaned my keurig this weekend, went to church with my friend @caffeineandcourage, and picked up a new devotional. A little bit of coffee, check. A whole lot of Jesus, check. Enough of either? No such thing.
