From falling in love with a child whose mother felt she had no option but to give her child away to an orphanage, to making friends and putting down roots in a small corner of a big city in India, to slowly getting to know mothers of beautiful children with unique needs with no support and no hope of anything changing for the better, to crafting a targeted approach of partnership with these mothers and watching them begin to thrive... It’s been an amazing journey. @priyamglobal is four years old today ✨
Thinking Theology Out Loud...A.z.w.Harris
And so We want this part of scripture in Religion...You see...
"Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle." Deuteronomy 7:14...
But don't want to observe the part...which is actually The Only Way to the first scripture...
"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for THEIRS is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for THEY shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for THEY shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for THEY shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for THEY shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for THEY shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for THEY shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for THEIRS is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is YOUR reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."
..." Matthew 5:2-12...🤔🤔🤔 The scripture doesn't say..."It shall be given to you...pressed down shaken together and running over...a blessing will be poured into your bosom." No, the scripture it says..."GIVE", and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, blessings shall be poured into your bosom" (Luke 6:38). This is your inner most You...This GIVER IS The GOD in You...This LOVE!!! "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him." 1 John 4:16
And so the idea is that through adopting and adapting to, through learning applying and muturing in these/this principle, eventually as the scriptures says "We have The Mind of Christ." (1 Corinthians 2:16)...wherein as other scripture says..."But they that seek the Lord understand all things." (Proverbs 28:5) And furthermore in scripture
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things (TBC)
Did you know that female elephants are extremely maternal? Mothers will stay by the side and care for their baby from the day they are born. Other females in the herd will care for young elephants for years after they have been born, even if they aren't their own offspring. Just another amazing lesson that can be learned in Africa! #motherswithoutborders#loveworks

It felt like the world against us, forbidden love. No, it felt like we got defeated way before we started...
But darling, do you remember you asked me, if I really wanna do this... us... by the staircase of my house with tears in your eyes.... .
I remember it so well, you told me, you just have to know... if i would give my all for us, be it another year, or next month or just another day.
Hell, I said yes and would do it all over again. World, universe, come what may cause we did it .. and we won.
This is a message/paper about what I have called "A Philosophy of Agape Love." It is a blend of Philosophy Theology and Practical Information attempting to explain in short that there is One Living God (Mark 12:29), who Is Above All and Through All Things (Ephesians 4:6), and That this God IS literally Love (1 John 4:16)!!! Within THIS "Agape Love", we have life and move and breath and have our being and it has the same within us in us (Acts 17:28). And so The Bible says that God (Agape Love) is an Above All And Through All Things Spirit of Love and Truth that Lives inside of and is Word(s) (Ephesians 4:6, Revelations 1:8, John 4:24, 1 John 4:16, John 17:17, John 1:1)...But how is this practicle and applicable? Can I recieve good instruction and new understanding about who I am and what I am from this knowledge? Does it empower me? Encourage me? Inspire Me? Does it set me free from any kind of mental bondage or fear that I may have once had, which was hindering my purpose for being born...for being happy...for being wealthy? I believe that The Philosophy of Agape Love", answers all of these yes!!! (TBC)
To have the best relationship you have to bring the best you to the table. So you must first on getting you right. There is a saying in the bible "I will comfort you so you can comfort others"
If your feeling empty you cannot fill your partner if your feeling low you can pick up your loved one. If you're not growing you can help the one you love to grow.
Today focus a little time on you.

"2 Fish 5 Loaves" is a mission of #LoveNationFreedomFoundation , by Austin Harris to raise 25k for investing into Omniscient Engineering LLC-Austin Harris Owner/C.E.O., which is promising #LoveNationFreedomFoundation very substantial funding for future charitable projects within/through #LoveNationFreedomFoundation ... i.e. #Mission : Isaiah61...Which has the $ Goal of $250m for specific strategic distribution/investment (into good people) who are members of #LoveNationFreedomFoundation , for various "missions" concerning the as practical as possible fulfilment of The Passage of Scripture in Isaiah 61, the missions title. More about #LoveNationFreedomFoundation The following is essentially the "About Us" statement for #LoveNationFreedomFoundation which can be found @ FaceBook #LoveNationFreedomFoundation (Group)!!! It explains the general idea/conception of #LNFF !!! ""Encouraging members to post #GoFundMe /Cash App.'s accounts toward "any good thing" (for yourself or someone else...Rent, Lights, Clothes, Cars, Trips, Education, Businesses...literally anything), but specifically for building "free things machines" (CHARITY, Farms, Edutainment, Education, Healthcare, Clothing, Housing, Electricity/Solar Power, Community Centers/Parks etc.-#ANYGOODTHING !!!). In other words, instead of the typical/traditional charity of raising money to buy perishable things for giving away, we strive to buy/build things (equipment/machinery/businesses/real estate/intellectual property), that build/grow perishable things for the giving away of things indefinitely. Members are also encouraged to occasionally support one anothers GoFundMe'z with 1-2-3 or 1-2-3 million dollars or more. Members are also MOST HIGHLY encouraged to take up the #FreshOilChallenge . This is the idea that we must daily and frequently upload positive information (Songs, Speeches, Sermons, Books etc.), into our short term memory, so as to filter toxic (negative) thinking from our minds...as do our livers and kidneys for our blood and water. This will help to enlighten and empower any great goal within you!!! Members are also encouraged to add good people to the group. The idea is that through (t.b.c.)
I think social media just leaves doors wide open to be cruel. It makes it easy to be a bully (I am guilty) behind a keyboard. People will add you on FB, follow you on IG, check up on your Twitter just to be nosy. They don’t always care about your well being. Some only care about the materialistic bullshit that surrounds life. ➰
I feel like more times than not, our first instinct is to make sure somebody ain’t doin it bigger or better than us. Or if they are in a situation worse than ours, we shouldn’t offer a helping hand. Why is that? ➰
I wonder what it would be like if we all wanted everyone to W I N 🏆 What if we all constantly encouraged others to be better than who they were yesterday!? ➰
If you don’t believe in Jesus and this is part of the reason, I am sorry. Jesus didn’t turn anyone away. There’s a part of me that even feels like he wanted the people hurting to draw closer.
I HOPE your Higher Power encourages you to love your neighbor 🖤
#loveva "Our goal while in Virginia is to see as many loveworks signs as possible and to do at least one thing in that location!" Richmond, VA. We checked out the amazing #bodyworlds exhibit at the Science Museum and stopped at the raceway on the drive back!
Love Works is super excited to be represented at this year’s Summer Kid’s Club for the mission portion of the evening!!
Each kid will get their very own Love Works passport and will be able to collect stamps from each ministry throughout the week. AND the idea is to keep your passport and bring it to each Love Works event during the next year and keep collecting stamps.
Tonight’s featured ministry is Night to Shine. See you all soon! #loveworks#skc#lwpassport#nighttoshine
