Great to spend time with @taboo from the @bep recently in Singapore. We spoke about his cancer battle and the group's first record in nearly a decade. "The thought of returning to the stage is what helped me get better in a way,” he said. “I would be in the hospital watching videos of our live shows because it kept my mind from thinking about the bio-chemical white cells being pumped into me. I would tell myself: ‘No. This is not gonna take me out. You cannot take me out because I gotta get back on that stage.” Article for @thenationaluae in bio :)
She is floating above the autumnal foliage, which had given up and fell onto an annual pre-winter ground.
The caresses of a warm southern wind are playing over her arched body.
She is waving in the rhythm of breath like if she possessed ability to feel like her Australian cousin mimosa (Acacia dealbata). Dressed with nothing but green.
She won my heart from the first time I saw her.
Coz she has a stubborn willingness to flourish despite awareness of the next cold months, which will bring the end, inevitably.
If you want to be outstanding so... why not?
Or maybe blending in the crowd of usualness fulfills your ambition?
Run until you have strength.
Doubts and jealous people will try hard to undermine your resources and therefore abort your promising yet undeveloped dreams.
But remember - you have more strength than you may think, take a note of that.
So detonate walls of hesitation, abandon blind thought-paths and uncover dwells of motivation before tough reality will force you to do so.
Anyway, you gonna find it eventually.
Otherwise you'll pass your atoms along to the Universe for a better use. Coz nothing goes to waste in the Nature.
But oh, c'mon - lets take a positive approach: be the first to unleash your inner strength - you will born again.
You will rise up from the ashes just like mythical Fenix, who lived hundreds of years and managed to reborn in merely 3 days.
For us it may take a little bit longer. But two things we have in common with this legendary creature: an effort and small steps on a daily basis have to be taken.
It doesn't matter if you feel like a demigod or a total looser - for both it demands an effort to keep up on one's track, especially if it goes in an unexplored and unbeaten path.
And those "perfect" Instagram accounts? Do not let them drag you down. It is bigger or smaller but still - a cropped version of their owners reality. They are meant to inspire you, not judge...
Unless you can save yourself #hindu#buddha#judaist#islam#muslim or any other belief system OUTSIDE of the #birth#death and #resurrection then YOU need JESUS... The rest of you who are neutral to #religion also need Christ or YOU are reading what WILL be your #judgement because you ARE guilty of one or more of the commandments with the arrow next to it. Stop thinking you were just born to work, have fun, take vacations, retire and die because if that was so THESE COMMANDMENTS WOULDN'T EXIST!
Это слово имеет несколько значений. ✅день недели. ✅ Иисус воскрес. Он теперь оживляет жизни людей.
✅название церкви, в которой я мог вчера делиться Словом
Я был очень рад быть частью служения вчера в этой церкви. Это активная церковь, которая интересуется потребностями людей, которые ее окружают.
Пастор Дейв @dave_andreson имеет большое сердце. Борясь с своими трудностями, он имеет место для людей с их трудностями.
Для меня честь знать его лично.
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.

THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL
We are crucified and resurrected time and time again until like Spring, new life is found in old bones of what was, what is, and that which is still to come. We will die a thousand deaths in this lifetime just so we can experience the breath and fire and hope of what it means to really be alive. "The dark night is a purgation of all sensible appetites for the external things of the world, the delights of the flesh, and the gratification of the will. That is why the poem proclaims that the soul departed when its house was stilled, the appetite asleep in the soul..." - Saint John of the Cross

يٰٓأَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِى رَيْبٍ مِّنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنٰكُمْ مِّنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُّطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُّضْغَةٍ مُّخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِّنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ ۚ وَنُقِرُّ فِى الْأَرْحَامِ مَا نَشَآءُ إِلٰىٓ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوٓا أَشُدَّكُمْ ۖ وَمِنْكُمْ مَّنْ يُتَوَفّٰى وَمِنْكُمْ مَّنْ يُرَدُّ إِلٰىٓ أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلَا يَعْلَمَ مِنۢ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا ۚ وَتَرَى الْأَرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَآ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَآءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنۢبَتَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍۢ بَهِيجٍ
"O People, if you should be in doubt about the Resurrection, then [consider that] indeed, We created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot, and then from a lump of flesh, formed and unformed - that We may show you. And We settle in the wombs whom We will for a specified term, then We bring you out as a child, and then [We develop you] that you may reach your [time of] maturity. And among you is he who is taken in [early] death, and among you is he who is returned to the most decrepit [old] age so that he knows, after [once having] knowledge, nothing. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows [something] of every beautiful kind."

Shout out to Hermon SDA for an inspirational worship experience for youth day. Such a humbling honor to serve as your guest speaker. I appreciate my brother @rickstar1875 for the invite in inspiring hope to your young people. Your genuity, hard work, and dedication is such an encouragement 👊🏽 #resurrection
Galatians 6:16 Peace and mercy to all who walk by this rule, even to the Israel of God. 17 From now on let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.… Berean Study Bible
One will say, 'I belong to the LORD,' another will call himself by the name of Jacob, and still another will write on his hand, 'The LORD's,' and will take the name of Israel." #Ezekiel 9:4
"Go throughout the city of Jerusalem," said the LORD, "and put a mark on the foreheads of the men sighing and groaning over all the abominations committed there." 2 Corinthians 4:10
We always #carry around in our body the #death of #Jesus , so that the life of Jesus may also be #revealed in our body.
2 #Corinthians 11:23
Are they servants of Christ? I am speaking like I am out of my mind, but I am so much more: in harder #labor , in more #imprisonments , in worse #beatings , in frequent #danger of #death .
I want to know #Christ and the power of His #resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to Him in His death,
And the #second beast required all people #small and #great , #rich and #poor , #free and #slave , to receive a mark on their #right#hand or on their #forehead ,
so that no one could #buy or #sell unless he had the #mark --the name of the #beast or the #number of its name.
The Comeback is always GREATER than the SETBACK…
Every single one of us has experienced setbacks in our lifetime. From falling in love to breaking up, from getting a job to losing a job, from having children and then experiencing an empty nest. These circumstances turn our world upside down, inside out and out of balance.These are the characteristics of a radical shift!
At the time, we may experience or feel as if everything is falling apart, we have no control and we are losing everyone and everything. Often times, the only way to really learn is through experience. Here are some ways you can stage your comeback after a setback.
1.Accept what you cannot control.
The first step in staging a comeback after a setback is to accept what you cannot control. For example, I cannot control Mother Nature so I had to accept that there was a hurricane heading my way. I also couldn't control when I got power and internet back so that I could get back to business. In both these instances, there was absolutely nothing I could do. Rather than struggling and getting stressed, I had to accept it. By letting it go, I was able to get some much-needed rest guilt-free.
2. Focus on the things you can control.
After you accept what you cannot control, you can focus on the things you can.
3. Look for the lessons.
The final step in coming back stronger after a setback is to look for the lessons. It's so easy for us to get overly emotional when we experience a setback. While it's important to feel our disappointment, there's a difference between feeling our feelings and wallowing.
Setbacks don't have to keep you from experiencing success. They are simply a part of the ride in business and in life. By using these tips, you can come back from a setback stronger than ever before. Artist cred: @chrystelle_f_ ·
