I declare: My love is never envious nor boils over with jealousy. It is not boastful or vainglorious, and it does not display itself haughtily. My love for others is not conceited nor arrogant and inflated with pride. It is not rude or unmannerly, and does not act unbecomingly. God's love in me does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking. My love is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it. It pays no attention to a suffered wrong. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. The love God puts in my heart bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything without weakening. God’s love in me and through me never fails and never fades out. My love will not become obsolete or come to an end. And so in my heart abide faith, hope and love. I have faith - a conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things. I have hope – the joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation. And I have love – a true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in me. But the greatest of these in my heart is love.
Our bus drivers have a big job! They pick up and return precious cargo to sometimes anxious waiting parents. This is tough on the first day with many new drivers figuring out their routes while monitoring a large cabin of mentally tired and sometimes mischievous passengers. Let's pray for bus drivers and passengers alike to end this day. #DifferentChurch#FullLife#BackToSchool#Pray#Dayton#Schools#BusDrivers#BusLife
As the Lord’s blessing for a new beginning impacts your life, some people will be REALIGNED — in new regions, new settings, new environments, within the framework of new relationships or connections. .
The Lord will often REALIGN in order to bring forth what He has ASSIGNED (ordained) for your life. .
Ruth would not have met Boaz had she not traveled to Bethlehem. She also would not have met the man, had she not been willing to let Orpah, her sister in law, go. Because Ruth DID release one relationship and open herself up to geographical relocation, she DID meet Boaz. And can we just say, the man was definitely a BAE UPGRADE, among other things! First, he was the vessel through which God provided for Ruth. Then, he became Ruth’s husband. Marrying Boaz made Ruth not only a wife, but co-owner of a business, a real-estate holder, and a respected figure in her community. .
THE LORD ORDAINED REALIGNMENT FOR RUTH in order to bring forth the blessings and assignments He’d ordained— and He will be doing it for many of you, as well.
Not all realignments include or require geographical relocation. Sometimes you simply need to be in the right place at the right time; sometimes you need new routines or people in your life. God knows what is necessary for you.
Remain open and be on the lookout for sudden new opportunities, meetings, divine downloads and strategic connections! God is positioning people in this hour! He has a new beginning for you! Get ready — REALIGNMENT is coming for many of us. Glory to God! Tap in and RECEIVE in JESUS’ mighty name!!

Oggi è Ferragosto, è un giorno di festa tutti vanno al mare, tutti si divertono ma nonostante questo io ho deciso di realizzare questa illustrazione in memoria delle vittime della tragedia accaduta ieri mattina, sul ponte Morandi di Genova. Penso a loro che sono morti innocentemente a causa dell'incoerenza umana.. lasciando la pelle e il suolo.
Un suolo dove la parola "sicurezza" viene spesso abusata senza capire in fondo la sua importanza, dove si parla di promesse e queste promesse non ce ne sono mai state, perché si vive di menzogne e inganni ogni giorno.
Questa illustrazione fa riflettere.
Fa riflettere perché loro ormai sono angeli con i sogni sospesi a metà..
How to Pray...Some days it seems impossible to even get the words out but remember it's never about the words, God knows what's on your heart. https://www.otleychurch.org/sermonblog/2018/8/6/how-to-pray #pray#prayer#otleychurch#sermonseries
No flex I’m the type to pick up and save pennies just want to encourage money management. This going in the bank. Probably on the bills or back into the company. I’m proud of myself, reduce my habits and increased my savings over short period of time #alldollarsmatter it’s easier to save small bills most would say spend just depend on how you look at it. Instead of 100 junk food runs eating out drugs and excessively consuming unnecessarily do things in moderation so you can afford the things you really want the extras add up. #1k#rentmoney#off#cdmoney#hustle#stack#pray#buildyourempire#stay#down#till#you#come#up
One thing we can’t deny we’ve all experienced is having an identity crisis. The big “Who am I?”
But these five statements here, you can use to say to yourself whenever you feel lost and can’t remember who you are and where you came from.
🌱 You are Valued - means you are fearfully & wonderfully made (Ps 139:14). God breathed into you the breath of life (Gen 1:27).
🌱You are New - in God’s eyes we are a brand-new creation (2 Con 5:17). You’ve been saved by grace (Eph 2:8)
🌱You have God’s spirit - meaning Christ is in you by His spirit, and you are in Christ! (John 15;5 Col 1:27)
🌱You will be Transformed - meaning as you seek Him and see more of His glory, He is transforming you into the image of His Son (2 Con 3:18 Ex 33:18).
🌱You Represent God - meaning walk in a manner worthy of your calling (Eph 4:1). You are an ambassador for Jesus (2 Con 5:20).
Your identity lies in nothing else but Jesus Christ!
Colossians 2:2-3 that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, even Christ, in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden.
James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without variance, without hypocrisy.
1 Corinthians 1:30-31But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who was made unto us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
Proverbs 3:19-20 By his wisdom and knowledge the Lord created heaven and earth. By his understanding he let the ocean break loose and clouds release the rain.
We can have this wisdom; James 1:5 says "If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won't correct you for asking." And more than having wisdom I believe we all need it! So let's pray for wisdom today! And I invite you read Proverbs 3:13-38 to know more about wisdom.
Blessing report from the shadow man 😎 Taking time to acknowledge God and his mercy, love, hand on my life and power. We all need a blessing report page to show God publicly that we don’t deny him in front of the world 🌎
