I heard the name “Birthing the miraculous” & its author in my sleep on Nov 15. Between then & now, I have read the book twice...What!!! The book is Fire🔥. While reading, I found myself pausing severally to gaze into space so I can digest some of the strong points in the book. Looks like @mamaaidabaker had me in mind when she was writing😁
In “Birthing the Miraculous”, Dr. Heidi gives practical insights from her life, ministry, personal encounters & life changing visions. These priceless insights will:
* Prepare you for entering & walking in the miraculous daily
* Help you fearlessly receive God’s promises, nurture the promises & carry them to full term
* Take you on a whole new dimension of walking in divine purpose
* Show you how to become a catalyst for God's glory here on earth
* Remind you that rejection & disappointments are all embedded in the journey of birthing miracles & help you see a way forward even in rejection
* Open your eyes to the fruits that come from intimacy with God
* Help you see how you can be a world changer by abiding in Secret Place & resting in God
I love this book for its simplicity. It is also a combination of a powerful and interesting read- you won’t want to drop it. The book got me thinking deeply about the promises God has given me. It has also made me more determined to be myself & stay firmly in my purpose without being apologetic about it……❤️
In my opinion, this is a must read for every child of God because we are all carriers of great promises waiting to be birthed. Have you read the book? What are your own thoughts?
The above is one of the most common “put down”statements, we sometimes repeat so much to ourselves till it becomes an integrated embedded belief in our heads. To some of us this starts in childhood, where we might have been assigned the “failure” role, been called a failure regularly or even just been treated like one. When this happen, children are likely to integrate this as part of their identity and it becomes a core belief that they carry out throughout their life which makes it hard to shake and challenge. Therapy helps with recognizing those negative destructive core beliefs, help us challenge them as well as replace them with healthier ones!
Panic attacks are one of the scariest experiences you can have. The worst thing in the world is trying to hold in a panic attack, especially in public. When the moment happens it can drain all your energy and leave you feeling so shaken up and hopeless inside. I literally feel like I ran a marathon sometimes and it can take hours to calm down. Don't feel belittled by these attacks because if you can come out of these experiences, strength is nothing to ever question in yourself!
I took this after work the other day. I just graduated massage school a month ago and I wish I was on the path to take my test and live that dream - but I had to put it on hold to make $$$. Bc the person I thought was going to support me ended up in their own rabbit hole. And I've led them to water time and again but they are a fish in the trees. Or a horse that wont drink. And I am so frustrated! I'm usually more like a willow tree bending in the sun to produce shade - but now I just feel like the wilted parts. And that's ok bc it wont be forever- just deep thoughts are stuck - Idc what anyone says PTSD is a bitch to live with and love someone with it takes mountains of courage. And it doesnt matter how many times I say hey this might help - If they cant see what they are doing - it's like talking to a wall. A horrible jaggad rocked - unmovable- unshakable - unfeeling mountain of grief- bipolar- anxiety and fear - all balled together into 4 letters. Hes not suicidal- unless it's to kill love for himself. Hes just lost. And, being a Leo. Not being able to put my hands out and help - sucks so much! So if your reading this and you suffer from a mental thing - or your family is saying hey maybe you should get help. Dont be mad at them for loving you more then what YOU can see. Bless your heart- love them, for loving you, and seek help. Bc you cant plant seeds of hope in emptiness.

I love getting to give haircuts to the homeless but I wrestle with the reality that the few haircuts I give:
1. Doesn’t fix their problems.
2. Isn’t enough because I can’t give haircuts to all the guests; sometimes I have to turn some away.
I always leave asking myself- what if it was me that desperately wanted a haircut and got turned away? How would I feel if it was me?
Hearing all their painful stories sometimes shatters me but I believe in the Hope that Jesus brings and that every little thing I do/give would have a lasting impact and show that Jesus cares by using me to bring hope.
Joy looks good on YOU! Where there is Jesus, there is JOY!
Remember that this next week as schedules seem to speed up, keep your heart and mind set on Him always. Jesus is the reason in every single season. ☝🏼 #myhopecitychurch#joyishere#abbotsford
Oftentimes we get so consumed with the busyness, anxiety, pain and loneliness in our lives that we stop enjoying God’s presence. Go out, stand and breathe in life and shine the greatest gift God offers us...“Love”. God’s love is not based on emotion, but flows out of His changeless character. His love will remain certain and dependable. Everyday we walk in, and are surrounded by God’s amazing perfect love. We are not alone...ever.
When we fail to realize the depth of His love, we miss a great blessing. .
He says to you today: “the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
Rejoice knowing our faithful God had always loved us and always will...we are never empty or alone.
Everything fades, every emotion fades, every memory fades and so does every reaction. I always wonder what life has for me in coming days. I paln, i anticipate, I expect and than..... I am disappointed, exited, overwhelmed or simply evoid. Life is not counting the steps before taking them, its about taking the steps and cou ting your progression. Each steps takes us closer to knowing the future. Being absorbed in present and looking back to our past makes us bound to painful memories. We never free ourselves from what worse have we been through and we can never move on towards what we could have been instead. The ugliest part of it is tht we are allowing others to kedp thwir hold on us and take advantage of our Nostalgic associations.
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows
all of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names
they never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games
then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say: "Rudolph with your nose so bright
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" then how the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee "Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
you'll go down in history." #pinnicorn#ピンノーコン#rainbow#love#future#hope#loveandpeace #❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤 #🥰#😊#🌈 #🦄 #kawaii#カワイイ#かわいい#可愛い #💋 #😘 #💖 #sharingart#lifeformdrawingclub#dailyart
In conversations with a business colleague, I was impressed with his awareness about the origin of Christmas, Saint Nicholas and the reaction of some Christians to a holiday that initially set out to celebrate the birth of Christ.
I was even more surprised to learn, that if you anagram the word S.a.n.t.a. you can come up with the word S.a.t.a.n., and some Christians are actually associating this jolly old holiday image with the devil. Personally, I had never associated giving gifts to little children or a hearty laugh with Satan the devil, but I was open to discussing it. Wow!
Like millions, I grew up learning how Santa Claus knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. He knows when you are bad or good.
But I also grew up believing these were the attributes of God Almighty. Bible verses like Ecclesiastes 12:14, says, “God will judge everything we do, even what is done in secret, whether good or bad.” — CEV
See Hebrews 4:13.
Many adults still believe the image of Santa Claus there all lining up at the Malls for a photo opp. But a google search on the Origins of Santa and Xmas may change your view or maybe not. Here’s the Q. What if everything linked to these pagan practices, now associated with the birth of Christ, is just as much an anagram in spirit as the word S.a.n.t.a. might be for the word S.a.t.a.n.? It’s something to think about. Why? .
Because of what Jesus said at John 4:23. Knowing the truth can set us free. It gives us choices about pleasing God and where to draw the line. Happily, only God can judge us in our worship to Him. .
After all, who else can really know when we are bad or good to reward us for our faith in Him?
