to the girl learning to grow in the Lord,
📝 - @speerandarrows ⇠ follow!
While working in our little flowerbed during a cool summer night our daughter asked me a simple question that lead to a startling revelation, “Why do we pull out the weeds?”
Now listen, I’m no gardening expert. Far from it but I did my best to explain to my five year old how the weeds steal the water from the flowers. Upon hearing this she immediately shouted “We gotta get rid of those weeds Mama!”
Then I saw concern wash over her as she asked “BUT how can we tell which plants are bad when they all look so much alike?!”
Well, ain’t that the truth?! I was stunned. In that moment I realized that the only difference between the life sucking weeds and the blooming flowers was a matter of perspective.
To my sweet little girl all the plants looked lovely but to someone who has the knowledge to differentiate between a weed and a flower it’s obvious what needs to be plucked out.
How often do we allow bitterness to take root in our hearts? How long do we allow guilt, shame and comparison to drain us of our joy? Do we even realize that these things have taken up residence in our lives?!
This moment in our flower bed lead me to look inwardly and ask the Lord to till the soil in my heart. I prayed for him to reveal the difference between what is life giving and what is sucking the life right out of me! It can be something subtly hidden yet given the opportunity, like a weed it could slowly destroy us.
Sometimes we have to look closely, dig deep and do the dirty work. Are you picking up what I'm putting down here? It's time to uproot the lies the enemy has sown and plant the seed of truth within our hearts friends! You don’t have to do it alone. Find someone to pray with you or better yet, ask God to help you reveal that which may be hindering you! He sees you. He hears you. He cares for YOU.
See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. Hebrews 12:15

Have faith 🤍 //// “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”

“Sharing words of wisdom is satisfying to your inner being. It encourages you to know that you’ve changed someone else’s life. Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.”

to the woman in the midst of trials,

“And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death.”
You have power over the devil and over the powers of darkness. The blood of Jesus is the weapon that you use against the attacks of the enemy. It will stop him right in his tracks!
There is no reason to be intimidated by evil. As the power of God fell on the day of Pentecost, releasing the believers to boldly testify about Jesus, the Word says, “Then fear came upon every soul...” (Acts 2:43). This scripture is talking about the fear of God, or respect of what is holy.
God has given you two things in the scripture to overcome the devil:
1. The blood of the Lamb.
2. The word of your testimony.
Satan is the accuser. The blood of Jesus is your guarantee of God‘s mercy that gives you complete coverage on all your needs. The blood stops all accusations because it cleanses you from all sin. It is by faith that you are able to rise above any condemnation.
The word of your testimony is the confession of your faith in God‘s Word. It is the Word of God spoken out loud. It is acknowledging the Word of God as the truth for your life.
Regardless of what your circumstances look like, when you continually speak the Word, you will see your situation lineup to the Word. Through the blood of Christ and the word of your testimony you are victorious in every area of your life!
I declare over you today that you are a blood bought overcomer! That you were born of God that you have God‘s nature, ability, and power to overcome every obstacle you face! You cannot be defeated! I declare that your situation has to change as you continue to speak the word of God over it in Jesus mighty name!
Today i choose grandmother, because it's her birthday. Happy 81th birthday mother. You have been a shoulder to cry on. May the Lord bless you abundantly, we love you and cherish you 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖 #womanofgod

Étant jeunes, nous sommes plus facilement touchés par un témoignage d’un jeune plutôt que d’une personne plus âgée.
Pour la simple raison qu’on a conscience que ce jeune est confronté aux mêmes combats que nous :
Problèmes émotionnels, relationnels, sexuels, de dépendance...

Ils répondront à toutes vos questions et partageront avec vous leur témoignage.

Optimistic much? Never in a million years would I have thought optimism would be a key player in my life but at age 41 it all changed. On purpose!
Here’s some advice from a former/recovering Debbie Downer to the realist out there who likes to know how it all will end. Or the girl who doesn’t want to have the wool pulled over her eyes. Or the fiercely independent woman who can absolutely take care of herself and doesn’t need anyone. (“These are my shoes 👠 I bought em”..you know who you are)
Try this: Letting go and seeing where the road leads you, trusting that disappointments in people and life can teach you so much, and knowing when you are truly whole and confident that no one can take anything from you. No my dear, they can only add to your life or teach you something you will need to move forward (with or without them). Every fear has a flip side, and, amazingly, it’s usually something you really want or need so learn to look at and react to it differently.

Ok who am I? Well I'm low-key a workaholic 👩🏻💻 who high-key loves surfing 🏄🏻♀️, traveling ✈️, reading 📚, and making people laugh 😃. Also I semi lift weights 🏋️🏻♀️💪🏼.
Grew up not having anybody believe in me, not having any type of support, started joining sports / committees in high school just because I didn't want to go home. The only place that I was ever noticed at was at school only because I became such an extrovert. Life wasn't as glamorous. As I grew up, I knew that I wanted to be and do more. Not only to prove to others of how capable I am, but to prove to myself that I am good enough. God has blessed me. He has shown me that true strength comes from within. Every night He'll whisper "never give up for I am by your side."
For that, I am strong.
Wow wow wow!!!! Saw this and had to share. This is what properly praying for your husband looks like, no matter where he is!!! What an outstanding woman of God who truly understands the Power of her prayers! #marriage#womanofgod#godlywife#proverbs31woman
