”Today as we gather together as a church family, we are going to stand in the gap with prayer for our brothers and sister at Calvary Community Church in West Lake. They have not only suffered a tremendous loss with the recent mass shooting but are now evacuated from their church and homes because of the fires. Today, our cry is Lord send the rains to our land, and further the reign of Your kingdom through us.” - Pastor @jasonmday .
“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:19 ESV
We must practice active acceptance of what we cannot change and grasp on to a new and more realistic hope for ourselves. The only thing, ever, in our lives that we must never give up on is ourselves because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Created in His image, He has sent us into His story for His great purpose, the greater good, even if it is perhaps not the dream we think we’ve always wanted.
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
This verse has been my faithful companion in times of trouble.
"Be still and know that I am God"😍 how amazing!
In our journey we might grow weary for many reasons perhaps a mistake, loneliness, financial difficulties and so on. The reality is that when things don't go our way we often strive to do things on our own strength.
We start to worry and worrying leads to anxiety before we know it our thoughts and emotions are running wild.
Yet when we surrender a peace comes because we have shifted from operating in our own understanding to applying the knowledge of Christ.
When we are still we can focus on God and his voice becomes more clear.
When we are still and know that he is God we are able to study his goodness and his faithfulness.
Yet stillness can not come without surrendering first.
Once we do victory follows as anxiety and worries turn into a peace that surpasses all understanding. .
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.
1 John 3:1 #childrenofgod#knowhim#makehimknown
1st John 4:9-10- "By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His son to be the propitation(payment, amend, atonement, reperation) for our sins." ❤
By the act that God did by sending Jesus into the world so that we may be able to live through Him and through His sacrifice, this is the love of God that was brought to life in us. God sent Jesus, His son, to save us (John 3:17) because He loves us and doesnt want to see anyone perish (2 Peter 3:9) but He wants to see us all repent and live a new life in Jesus Christ. This sacrifice didn't occur because we loved God, but because God loves us so much that while we were sinners He sent His only Son Jesus to die for our sins (Romans 5:8), to bear the punishment we deserved, Himself,and to pay our death penalty so that we could be reconciled to God and come into a relationship with Him and so that we would be granted the promise of eternal life with our Lord who deeply loves us. Praise God! He has shown all of us such a great mercy and such great grace! God loves you so much that He wants to transform your life entirely through your faith in Christ Jesus as the Son of God and once you repent of your sins after seeing how good God has been to you (Romans 2:4) and how much grace He has truly shown you. God wants to welcome you into a new life as a Child of God, free from the oppression of this world which is sin,, addiction, torment, hurt, confusion, worry, sadness, pain, God wants to free you from all that, today! God wants to bring you into a life of peace, love, joy, goodness, kindness, patience, and self-control. What is keeping you from being saved right now?

What a God we have! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life & have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and it starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us & the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed & whole.
see what God has planned for you and me. •
It is important to ask yourself this question every now and then, to make sure you know what's been going on with you. If your answer is yes, ask someone around you if they're okay.
If your answer to the question is a no, then, pray.
You're going to be okay. Let your prayer be heard by Him who constantly listening.
The other day, we got a mom and Emmett date. (Of course Sterling came too, She’s still at the “attached” age! 😉) we went to his head checkup, and then because it was special time for us, and his “graduation” celebration he got to pick where we ate. Can you guess where he picked?! .
I try to spend time with each kid individually. Obviously I have so many, it gets tough. Emmett and I have never had a date! 😱 I couldn’t believe it when I realized it. So this day was extra special. .
We have a few fun things planned for all of us in the next week or so. #denverzoo#northpole it’s gonna be fun!!!! 😍😉
