Psalms 18:28. Darkness is something that many Christians experience and struggle with sometimes. Darkness can come from depression, from confusion and indecision, from traumatic events, from financial, relationship, or health problems, or from facing and struggling with adversity and fears in our lives. Whenever we are experiencing dark times in our lives, they can feel like they last forever and there is no way out. We may feel hopeless and helpless during the dark times. If we are going through dark times, we must remember that there is always comfort, peace, and light in God. While we may face dark times sometimes, we do not have to stay in the darkness because our God has the ability and power to light up our darkness when we seek Him and embrace His presence in our lives. No matter how far into the darkness we have fallen or how low we are, God can always reach us and help us out of the darkness. Light always shines through darkness, and God can always shine through our darkness. It is during the dark times that we are best able to see and feel God's presence working in our lives. We need to accept God and allow His light to reach us and remove the darkness. No matter what you are struggling with or going through, God is greater and is bright enough to remove any darkness. Nothing or no one is dark enough that God cannot shine through and help. Just as darkness can never overpower light, no darkness can keep God from shining on our lives. Are you experiencing darkness in your life right now and need God to light up your life? Let God light up your darkness and brighten your life.

“Grace.” In the last 2 years, both my Parents passed away. We never had much. My Parents did the best they could. I was asked what I would want from their house when they left this Earth? I had really one request. This is a Photo taken in 1918 ( of course not the original). But it always resonated with me. I now have it. #grace#blessed#moneyisnteverything#thankful
The battle for the mind is the greatest battle a person will ever have to fight, especially a Christian. While you're in the world, the enemy will seduce you with sin to keep you, but when you give your life to Christ, he fights you through temptation to get you back.
Once saved you quickly learn that what you used to call fun, was actually a weapon but not a weapon that produced pain, but pleasure.
While you was laughing and having a good-old time in sin, the enemy was actually building strongholds in your mind, addictions and habits.
You no longer find yourself laughing or enjoying yourself but instead, struggling with the ugly face of temptation.
The Bible tells us that every man is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust and desires (James 1:14). Think about it, if we never enjoyed it, we can't be drawn away by it, so that means the war didn't start once we got saved, it started once we started saying yes to the things we should've been saying no to. The enemy is never out to please you, he's out to trap you! He's not out to fulfill you, he's out to fool you! His pleasures are apart of his plan, not yours! That's why we should never treat sin as a "simple thing" because it's not nor should we try to fight it on our own - it's a spiritual war to which we must use spiritual weapons - prayer, fasting, standing on the Word, and whatever else God tells you to do in order to fight your good fight of faith. And you must always have a made-up mind, for without it you won't use your spiritual weapons effectively.

Hidup akan semakin hidup saat Anda menyadari apa saja yang sebenarnya telah Yesus selesaikan untuk Anda.
Tahukah Anda apa saja yang telah Yesus selesaikan untuk kita?
Mula-mula Dia menyelesaikan setiap hukuman atas dosa dan pelanggaran kita beserta akibat-akibatnya secara tuntas di atas kayu salib. Dengan demikian, kita tidak perlu lagi memikul setiap hukuman atas dosa dan pelanggaran yang telah kita lakukan.
Setelah itu, kita diberikan kepastian bahwa Tuhan tidak akan lagi mengingat-ingat bahkan menghukum dosa dan pelanggaran kita. Mengapa? Sebab kita tidak akan benar-benar merasa dikasihi jika kita masih merasa terhukum dan terintimidasi. Oleh karena itu, Yesus yang menebus semuanya itu supaya kita tidak lagi dihukum. Kita telah diampuni seutuhnya.
Roma 8:1 Demikianlah sekarang tidak ada penghukuman bagi mereka yang ada di dalam Kristus Yesus.
Ibrani 8:12 Sebab Aku akan menaruh belas kasihan terhadap kesalahan mereka dan tidak lagi mengingat dosa-dosa mereka.
Selanjutnya Roh Kudus dicurahkan tinggal di dalam kita supaya kita menyadari kita telah disatukan dengan Yesus. Dan saat ini Bapa di sorga memandang kita sama seperti Bapa memandang Yesus. Bapa mengasihi kita sama seperti Bapa mengasihi Yesus. Bapa menilai kita benar sama seperti Yesus. Yesuslah kebenaran kita.
Dan saat ini mulailah memandang hidup kita penuh dengan perkenanan Tuhan, kasih karuniaNya yang melimpah, dan penyertaanNya yang sempurna untuk kita.
1 Yohanes 4:17b (BIMK) ... sebab hidup kita di dunia ini sama seperti hidup Kristus.

Just keep on living your life despite what others say about you. Smallness talks about others and judges people, the people that know your heart will stay by your side no matter what. Don’t be the person who lives in a glass house......standing in moral high ground over others is just indicative of your own failings and inability to own them. Just do you, be better than yesterday, rise above it all, improve yourself, and leave those people behind that would tear you up, instead of build you up. Protect your energy, protect those you love, honor truth and live in today and be brave. Apologize when you need to without justifying but don’t let anyone use it to demoralize you, or to abuse your sincerity! We all need grace sometimes, to receive it, and to give it....✨💛✨ ✌🏼 #harmony#grace#youdoyou#imdoingme#livefree#single#light#letgoofthepast#fly
I am not concerned with what you show the world. I am not concerned with the bejeweled armor that you carry to distract from your vulnerabilities.
What is important is who you are when you lay that armor down.
You can "Wash your face", you can eat the clean foods, you can go to the gym and change your appearance. But that isn't what I am asking you to do.
Girl...get naked. Shed everything. The negativity of the world, your own self deprecating thoughts, your clothes that you bled to afford. Shed those hair pins, earrings and makeup.
Get naked and confront those things that you think make you vulnerable.
Who are you in the raw?
It is time to do a soulful inventory.
Get right with God and shed it all, hand it to him. Give him your troubles and worries. He loves you as you are.
You are divinely, wonderfully and fearfully made. You are made with GRACE, LOVE, and GRIT.
It is time to lay down the armor. There is power in the authentic you. There is beauty in your grit, and grace in the challenges you face. Because you survived all the yesterdays and you have survived today, and you my dear will survive tomorrow.
Find your grit. Your grace. Your strength. Your beauty.
Get naked...and watch yourself bloom.
🌹O dom de ser amigo🌹.
Eu tenho sim, aquelas pessoas memoráveis em minha vida! Aquelas que caminharam comigo, que fizeram parte da minha história, que me emprestaram seu ombro nos momentos mais difíceis, que me abraçaram quando a minha alma necessitava ser aquecida por afetos e cuidado. Eu tenho sim, aquelas pessoas que me foram porto seguro, presente de Deus, milagres em forma humana produzindo em mim essências de força e gratidão.
Algumas se foram pra nunca mais voltar (saudade que não me cabe no peito), outras permanecem do meu lado, continuam fazendo parte dos meus dias e aguardam comigo a realização dos meus sonhos e conquistas. Porque amigos de verdade tem esse dom de nos marcarem por dentro. De deixarem em nós o seu melhor.
De fazerem com que a nossa vida tenha sentido mesmo que haja uma multidão torcendo contra. Amigo que é amigo não nos cobra taxa de serviços, não carregam rótulos do tipo falso, enganador ou traidor, não nos abandona nas horas precisas, não nos dão as costas quando o que mais queremos é um olhar acolhedor nos dizendo silenciosamente: "vai ficar tudo bem", vai dar tudo certo, "tamo" junto pro que der e vier.
Ele sabe quando deve te corrigir, e quando deve te entender e abraçar. Amigos se amam, se reconhecem, se chateiam, e também se perdoam. Valorize aqueles que te consideram como tal. Valorize aqueles que fazem de um tudo pra te cuidar, e que,o mesmo de longe conseguem ouvir o seu coração chamar. Isto é dom. Isso é bênção, isso é coisa de Deus. ✔Cecilia Sfalsin

A NOTE TO MYSELF
Luke 2 Years ago you was sat outside in your uncles garden crying your eye’s out… and all you saw in your life was darkness. You was a broken man and saw no way out. You didn’t know who you was or what had happened in your life for you to feel that…
It was at that moment where you reached out to something bigger than yourself, you asked for help and direction and as quick as turning on the light you felt the storm that you had been in had been calmed. You wanted to know how this was possible, how you could be so broken and lost but in a moment was saved.
You now know that saver as Jesus Christ.
See you believe that when you cried out you was chosen, God took your pain and fuelled your purpose. But be honest with yourself… you lost sight of your saviour, you forgot who had guided you for this long and you foolishly thought you could do it on your own.
But I couldn’t for the past 6 months you have been wearing a mask. You have felt that storm had come again, the sense of loss of identity and direction… you have been sailing blind. See you had been neglecting the one thing that had saved you and had taken you this far.
You now see why God wouldn’t allow you to stand before others without first kneeling and humbling yourself to him. Because the fact is your nobody without God. He is the the breath in your lungs, the beat in your heart and the love in your soul.
Your just a vessel, a man who has been given a gift that was given to you by the same person that has guided you this far. Remember that.
Humble yourself. Kill your ego. Remember who’s guiding you.
Lot’s of love Luke x

“I heard them saying ‘Build that wall! Build that wall!’ You know this is indigenous land. You know we’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did. Before anybody else came here we never had walls. We never had a prison.
We always took care of our elders, we took care of our children. We always provided for them. We taught them right from wrong.
I wish I could see the mass of young men put that energy into making this country really great.”

Card of the Day: Queen of Wands
You’re tempted to trot around town to all your favorite locations. It feels as though your route may be influenced by one locale in particular. If you’re out here trying to casually bump into your ex or that hot neighbor you’ve been dying to strike up a convo with, your best bet is to make a game plan for yourself, first. And by game plan, I don’t mean try to talk yourself out of it. If this person is on your mind so much, stop hesitating and just make it happen. There’s a reason you can’t stop daydreaming about them. Just be clever about it. A little thought and sweetness will go a long way. Then once they’re putty in your hands - it’s time to strike! With this moon coming, it is the perfect time to make your move. Good luck ya’ll!
With Jesus, nothing can be the same. And isn't that such an amazing thing? God has put potentials into you that never could be unlocked until Jesus came into your life. Boldness in faith. Boundless Generosity. Goodness and virtue. Wholeness and healing.
Jesus didn't come just to be an add-on to your life. He came to BE the best life you could possibly have. Jesus said it himself: "I am the resurrection and the life." And the life that Jesus means is a kind of life that is completely restored and full of all the goodness he intended for it.
All of that goodness lasts into eternity. But it begins to break forth into our lives today. And it's not meant for us only. Our transformation is meant to be infectious. It's meant to spread far beyond ourselves.
If Jesus changes everything, then his people are engaged in a mission to change the world, literally.
