No texto observamos uma sequência de acontecimentos: alguns enviam, outros pregam, outros ainda ouvem, estes que ouviram creem e passam a invocar o nome do Senhor. Tornar o nome do Senhor conhecido e espalhar Seu amor pela terra é missão de todo crente (Mt 28:18-20). Paulo nos mostra que além de falar para o seu vizinho ou parente sobre Cristo, é necessário também algumas pessoas irem onde ainda ninguém ouviu sobre Cristo.
Você se lembra de como chegou ao evangelho? Alguém com certeza contou para você sobre a obra de Cristo. Pode ter sido um parente, um amigo, um professor… Mas e você, já contou sobre Cristo Jesus para alguém? Todos nós somos chamados a sermos missionários e a nos envolvermos com missões de todas as formas: orar, enviar, sustentar, ajudar, servir, são algumas das formas que você pode se envolver. Não perca tempo! Participar da obra do Senhor é um privilégio, e não um fardo!
Oração: Senhor, assim como um dia a mensagem da salvação chegou até mim, quero me envolver na missão de espalhar Sua mensagem em todo o mundo. Ajuda-me a ser sensível às oportunidades de pregar o seu evangelho e também me mostra onde devo me engajar e como posso contribuir!
This week I’m blessed to really think on things to be grateful and thankful for. With all the crisis and disaster lately, let us see the value of the day and shortness of life. Time for togetherness also stimulates the grudges, beefs and content we hold for one another, as we clench tighter to our justified positions so not to allow the Godly way to get at us to much. Life is crazy like that but it’s a matter of perception. These are just the issues in life that make me thankful for my heart and mind. I’m thankful that my mom is still around to see me in action with my passion and evolved past the ignorance and havoc I once lived as a teenager. Im thankful that I have been around to be a father to my daughter for these 13 years and have maintained a parental responsibility regardless of the conflicts of adulthood. Never have I neglected, gave up or quit on a innate duty that came natural to me even though I had no father past age 6. I’m most of all thankful for having a personal connection with a higher power that has guided me through struggling times when I felt boxed in. That power has never failed me. That power keeps me aware that it’s never that bad and as long as we live to see another day, it is a good day. A good day to be better then yesterday. Be thankful people. You may not always have that chance to show it. #blessed#inspiration#motivation#success#joy#godisgood#truth#grace#grateful#spiritual#strength#amazing#trust#goodvibes#nevergiveup#thankful#dedication
N E W D A Y. Yes!!! Give yourself some grace. it’s a new day. Don’t ride on yesterday’s guilt.
God’s mercies are new every morning. His grace is more than enough. As you journey through today, know that Holy Spirit does a new thing in your life each day.
You can’t afford to wait for everyone else to see what you see, or want it bad enough the way you want it bad! Everyone doesn’t have your Grit! But you have God’s #Grace ! Go! Even if you have to go alone!
One who is completely enlightened has no needs and no responsibilities. Also one who is inert has no needs and no responsibilities. In between these two, everyone has some needs and some responsibilities.
If you sit and make a note of all your responsibilities and all your needs, and if you find that your needs are more than your responsibilities, then life will lead to misery.
But if you take more responsibility and have fewer needs, then you will be happy.
This is the secret.
When your needs are many and you focus only on your needs and don’t take responsibility, you remain unhappy; you keep grumbling and complaining.
When you take more responsibilityand your needs are less, everything simply comes to you - enthusiasm, happiness, creativity, etc.
Now the question arises: what if one is hungry? If one is hungry, one has to eat. If one is thirsty, one has to drink. These are all physical needs.
I tell you, your body belongs to this Earth and the Earth will take care of it. You belong to the Divine and the Divine will take care of you.
In fact the Divine is taking care of you.
Make this distinction that you are separate from your body. As soon as you do this, you will see that you belong to the Divine, and then your smile becomes a permanent feature. - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Em [SALMOS 81:1-16], DEUS repreende a Israel pela sua ingratidão e rebelião .
Ele diz: -Ah, Israel, se me ouvisse !
Mas um pouco abaixo, continua a frizar.
Ah! Se o meu povo me tivesse ouvido !
Se Israel andasse nos meus caminhos! [SALMOS 81:13]
Por quê em tempos como hoje; ainda andamos entristecendo o coração de DEUS; com tanta ingratidão e falta de respeito?! Não dando ouvido ao seu falar...
Por quê não obedece - lo?
E fazer conforme sua vontade para conosco, sendo que ela é BOA, PERFEITA E AGRADÁVEL !
Obedecer aquelE que sabe cuidar tão bem de nós .
Por quê continuar desobecendo e levantando fúria, contra a DEUS ???
Por quê ? Por quê ?
Com tantas imundície.
"INGRATIDÃO É A PALAVRA ADEQUADA A SE USAR, AO QUE ESTAMOS VIVENCIANDO". Vamos dar mais ouvido ao que DEUS está nos dizendo!
Pois obedecer, é melhor que sacrifícios .
Ao invés de provocar sua ira contra nós.
Saiba DEUS é AMOR, mas é JUSTIÇA também !
Ele está a olhar para essa geração desobediente, incrédula e tão pervertida.
Com o mesmo pensar que foi citado nesse [SALMOS 81]
Ah, Não estão me ouvindo !
Ah, se o meu povo me ouvisse !
Se andasse nos meus caminhos!
Vamos agir .
Ser mais inteiros para Ele, que é o único digno de tudo.
O obedecendo !
Clamando por nossa nação !
Andando em reto caminho !
Ele nos diz: - Meu povo perece, por falta de conhecimento !
É uma tristeza eu sei...
Estamos juntos irmãos (a), vivenciando tudo isso.
Oremos, por nossa geração !
Por nossos jovens, crianças, adultos, idosos e etc...
Vamos nos levantar !
Ir a batalha, povo eleito por DEUS .
Vamos clamar a DEUS por misericórdia !
Em nome de Jesus !
A paz seja com todos!
O noivo vem ai, sejamos humildes e dóceis uns para com os outros
Mas amor, por favor!
Essa é a chave: "O AMOR"
[ AMAR A DEUS SOBRE TODAS AS COISAS, E AO TEU PRÓXIMO COMO A TI MESMO] --------------🌼🌼🌼 •
You feel a lot of love for someone and they do not take it. What do you do? ⚫ Get frustrated.
⚫ Turn the love into hatred and wish for revenge.
⚫ Again and again remind them how much you love them and how little they love you.
⚫ Become fussy and cranky.
⚫ Throw tantrums.
⚫ Feel humiliated and try to protect your respect.
⚫ Resolve never to love again.
⚫ Feel hurt and mistreated.
⚫ Try to be aloof and indifferent. ... and you have seen that none of these work. They only make the situation worse.
What is the way out of this? How do you maintain your lovingness? ⚫ Have patience and change your expression of love.
⚫ Be centered and limit your expression of love. Sometimes over-expression of love puts people off.
⚫ Take it for granted that they love you too and accept their style of expression. For example, a mother with three kids. One child talks, one child does not talk, one child throws tantrums. Mother's love is the same irrespective of their behavior.
⚫ Genuinely acknowledge their love for you. This will turn your demand into gratefulness and the more you are grateful in life, the more love comes your way.
⚫ Know that hurt is part of love and take responsibility for it. When you move away from your center, you will definitely get hurt and the nature of worldliness is misery. - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Oh, how the universe works😭💜 This is a very vulnerable post for me but I just feel the need to share it because it is proof that the smallest things can move a soul:
For some odd reason, the past few days for me have been filled with unexplained anxiety and stress. I hadn’t posted on my blogs or in my groups for a few days and I’m not sure if it was because I burned myself out or if I had become unmotivated.
All I know is that just as quickly as my spirit looked down, God swooped it up and lifted it back into the sky! 💜 What started as a simple message from a dear friend led to God giving me a spiritual pep talk which ended with me in tears😭
I feel the need to pass the love and spirit and possibly touch a soul. I just want to tell you:
YOU DESERVE TO BE HERE! YOU HAVE A PURPOSE HERE AND EVEN THOUGH LIFE GETS A FEW PUNCHES IN EVERY NOW AND AGAIN, YOU WILL ALWAYS WIN THE FIGHT IF YOU STAY STRONG!💪🏾 EVERYTHING WILL FALL INTO PLACE AND THE UNIVERSE HAS ALREADY PLANNED AN AMAZING PEACE FOR EVERY ONE OF US! THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO DO TO OBTAIN THAT PEACE IS LIVE IN THE MOMENT AND LOVE EVERYONE IN EVERY MOMENT!💜🙌🏾 That is exactly what I told myself after my spirt was moved and my soul was touched💜
Even in the moments where you don’t feel like loving yourself, just remember Kenya Loves U💋

My prayer is to always have a fire in my heart. Fire to worship my Creator and fire to love Him everyday. My greatest fear is to forget Him. Because human heart is deceitful above all else. I’d rather have Him than any blessings that the world can give. I hope my heart will not get cold to honor and love Him. 🙏🏻 join my tribe. Subscribe link above 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼
Going out mama vs. staying in mama ~ ~
I have always loved doing my hair & makeup each morning (although this morning I actually singed a bunch of my bangs & gave them this frayed, layered look... Thank you Jesus for granting me with loads of hair!!!) but I am not a “Yeah, I wear jeans at home all the time!!” person....
Nope! The only time I’m in jeans at home is when I’m leaving or just getting back😂
I will always agree that, wearing somewhat stylish/ in clothing is good for YOUR mindset, but I also agree that, you don’t have to try so fu**ing hard all the damn time either... Wether you’re single, married, mingling...
Your mood is gonna change from day to day, so just go with it! Just don’t expect me to answer my door in street clothes😂😂
Happy Tuesday ppls!!
P.S. Mama’s, don’t be so hard on yourself, perfection isn’t a real thing. I really don’t think it should even be a word, cuz it sucks, at least the way most ppl view/ use it these days. Let’s just agree that as mothers, as long as we’re doing our best, having some wine now & then & doing what we like to do FOR OURSELVES on occasion or as much as you can, that we’re “gettin’ it done”.
Your little ppl & lover need you, and they need you at your happiest, so do for you so you can do for them🖤💋💋
For the Year:
“When you start to feel like things should have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here. They are not accidents, and those moments weren’t in vain. You are not the same. You have grown, and you are growing, you are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless, boundless, grace. And things will get better. There is more to you than yesterday.” - Morgan Harper Nichols
@morganharpernichols has become one of my favorite writers. She brings words to life. This poem brings encouragement to anyone who thinks they need to have it all figured out, when you don’t. With the year coming to an end, it is sometimes difficult to see that you did not accomplish as much as you wanted to. We make so many mistakes and don’t fulfill our goals, but that’s okay. It’s okay because we are wrapped in Gods grace and love.
Thank goodness for that.
Happiness is:.... not just "my" Blessings, but EVERYONE... EVERY single one of us with many Blessings!
My favorite #qotd ❤:
"Humility isnt thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself less!" If you're reading this, you can read, you have eyes that see, you're breathing, you're loved, just to scratch a few... SO many Blessings!!! We all have a story but if we focus on our Blessings and share the good, we're all better for it! 🙌💕Thank you God for your gift of Grace & Mercy. 🙏 #faith#happiness#gratitude#humility#share#selflesslove
Antes de viajar à férias, eu estava passando por alguns conflitos, tempestades de pensamentos e emoções. Desgastado com trabalho, ministério, amizades, projetos e comigo mesmo. Então, dentro deste paraíso “Cancún”, eu ousei pedir um sinal divino. Deus me disse: apenas fique atento aos detalhes.
E, voilà, num passeio dentro de uma caverna, escrito numa ROCHA, leio este trecho - Porque andamos por fé e não por vista.
Nossa fé nunca poderá ter como base a areia (emoção, medo, desconfiança, frustração), mas, a fé deverá sempre estar baseada na ROCHA. Por mais que você não veja, a fé estará lá.
Agora volto para o Brasil, pronto para CAMINHAR por fé, tomar as decisões, reerguer, tirar, devolver e SEGUIR 👊🏾
We each have a divine calling. We were put on this earth to do big things. But if you are living a small life, instead of celebrating who you were created to be, you are depriving yourself and everyone around you of something great. Change doesn't happen overnight or without action. I know that I want to live the life of who I was meant to be. Are you coming along?
(Over The Rainbow Part 2 of 2; also the sun was in my eyes.😆🤩) I've come to see Forgiveness as a form of empathy, wisdom, grace, and compassion. (Read full post at Joshovaswitness.com)
We are all fighting our own battles. We don’t have to keep holding each other a part or blame others for the discord on our paths. You, are not alone. You are not alone. You are not alone.
When I start to doubt my way I go back to nature. I return to the Earth. Out in the wilderness there’s no bullshit. Wolf, deer, and elk shit- sure. 😆 But in nature it’s just you & the Earth. You are confronted with your thoughts, strengths, & vulnerabilities.
You must look into the shadow of your own soul, objectively, without judgment or praise. It seems so daunting at first, just like meditation, just like anything. The skills I learned as a social worker have all played a part in who I am now and on my new path.
I was able to write a book and blog because I wrote entire investigation reports on hundreds of families 5 days a week for 6 years. My job made me fearless because I saw the good that is worth fighting for in this world.
Do not think your dream is over just because it hasn't manifested yet. Take stock of your situation and enhance the things that are working for you.
The negative blocks, jobs, people in your life will naturally start to fall away. I've lost about 20 friends- since moving/gaining attention.
It was painful & I didn't understand why until recently. Those not able to be strong or happy for me when I needed them to be because they were not able to love, be strong, or truly happy w/ themselves. There was much freedom in that revelation. I don't want to be a conditional human being- placing all my hurt & expectations for personal happiness on anyone else except myself & the Universe, or whatever might be out there.
There are many footpaths
and mountains to scale.
I am not afraid.
I am enough.
