(Exodus 2: 14-15)
While male lions are cubs, they seem to get more attention, than female cubs - especially if it's a cub without any siblings.
As they began to grow, everything about them begin to change, their level of aggression, physical characteristics (they outgrow the females, and grow a mane (the hair on the face)), and they begin to grow into sexual maturity. These are really signs that they are ready to leave the pride, but because of the strong bonds lions build, including being all related, family life is all the young males ever really knew.
But it's when the adult male lions of the pride begin to notice the change in their aggression, and the growth of the mane, that he no longer wants the younger male in the pride and he kicks him out, chasing him (or them) away.
These young males are now left to wander alone for the next 3 years of their lives.
It may feel like a horrible thing, but it's actually a blessing. It took the adult male lion to kick the young lions out of his comfort zone to put him on path to his destiny, where he can grow, takeover a pride of his own and spread his genes to another generation of lions.
This is kinda how God has to deal with us at times. We get comfortable in a comfort zone - and a comfort zone is not only a place it's also a mindset and God knows unless He forces change in our lives, we will not move in the direction of our destiny and learn to trust Him like we should.
Moses would not have left Egypt unless he was forced to. Running into the wilderness must of been awful, but what he didn't know was he was also running into his destiny.
Has God removed you from your comfort zone? If so, He did it so you can begin to move towards your destiny. This season may hurt and may have left you with many questions, but you are not alone! God is pushing you where you belong! Don't look back, because you can't go back. This is your time now - reach for it and don't stop until you get there!
Regrann from rebelthriver - Hello, sweet friends. As a HSP (highly sensitive person), and an empath, I know both how incredibly difficult, and how extremely rewarding it is to go through this life feeling everything so deeply. I have been judged negatively, but also lovingly and appreciatively for it. Sometimes it’s depended on the essence of the individual, and other times on whether they are benefiting from it; harsh truth. I do believe it’s a gift, but as you well know, it sure doesn’t always feel that way. It can be quite painful, exhausting and lonely at times, especially for those of us who were not guided, taught, nurtured...in its ways growing up. I have learned to embrace it unapologetically, and am always working on ways to better navigate its powerful presence in my life. I just wanted to let all of you out there who resonate with this post know that I KNOW how much Strength it takes, and how much Good you bring to the world...that I think you are So beautiful, and I Appreciate you. You are a shining light✨ Please remember to recharge. Care for yourself, and set appropriate boundaries when needed, so you’re not depleting yourself or being taken advantage of. I love you! 💙Leila
Pastor @kunasepulveda ministering at the G12 Conference in the UK!
Our momentum continued with Pastor Kuna Sepulveda teaching us to settle the call of God in our hearts. ⠀
First the Holy Spirit must minister in our lives, and then our life must be fully surrendered to the call of God.⠀
God has called us to be ministers and witnesses of the Gospel. As we answer that call, we can expect supernatural results.
Do you know that there is no comparison to you? You are uniquely made by our Heavenly Father. Every detail about you was thought through. You are who God made you to be. Therefore, there is no comparison to anyone else. Stop comparing yourself to other women. Seek to be the best woman that God has called you to be. #nocomparison#noonelikeme#madeintheimageofgod
The results I have now, I have because I started 3yrs ago, 5yrs ago, 10yrs ago.
Look it’s simple, there is a place you want to be in life and in order to get there, get the results...you have to start now, you have to already started!
Commit to the results, use the pain in the process to fuel your drive, and finally live the life you’ve wanted to live!
We know that’s right! 💕 Being in community is SO important, agreed?! What we LOVE about CSF is that we’re always meeting new women doing incredible things. Join us? 😊️ Link in bio. Oh, and have a great weekend. You earned it!! 😉
“Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense.
Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten.”

🦄 Myth: I need to be in shape first.
✨ Reality: I need to have a passion to help others 💚
Being a health coach was something I watched from a distance before deciding I was going to give it chance. The two week free trial I was invited to changed everything for me.
Three months in and I’m so glad I did 💚 why? Because I’m healthier, stronger, more disciplined, more muscle tone, and I have an INCREDIBLE group of ladies who encourages and cheers me along the way. They could do the same for you 😉
Message me for more benefits on becoming a coach! You CAN!
The same sky that I look at is the same sky that you look at! That is my reminder that we are all connected. In these short clips I have a message for anyone who wants to hear! Thank you in advance for listening...
There is no such thing as a "broken family." Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.
