The Pole Star + House/Home and Lucky Seven Bones
This is a very interesting card combo for this day!
The Pole Star of prophetic guidance and inspirational knowledge has risen for us to absorb and to look towards. When we pay attention to it's guidance, and bring it home, that is where our luck will change and flourish. This knowing will guide us through the darkest of times to our true home, where our fortunes flow. Despite all the chaos, know that there is a power greater than ourselves, shining in the distance, that can manifest energies that will reconstitute our realities for the better. The trick is to not think things are only happening over there, other people will figure it out. Rather we are asked to bring it home, attend to our own environment. Local becomes global when we work this way.

Today I am reflecting on why I continue to follow women on Instagram who make me struggle spiritually😓😂😭
We all know what I’m talking about, right? That profile that you never want to openly admit makes you struggle🙈, but you find yourself thinking the following things anyway:
Jealousy—“How can someone even look that good in EVERY photo?”😒 “Do they have a personal photographer or something?” "Okay moving on..." *subconscious scroll*
Pride—"WHAT! How does she have so many followers?!" "I uploaded the same photo yesterday and only got half the likes."😤 *takes a deep breath and likes her photo in an attempt at humility, keeps scrolling*
Insecurity—“Look at her thigh gap. I wish I was that thin.” "Who am I kidding, I'm not meant to be a small business owner."😞 "But God made it so clear that this was the right path...” *takes a deep breath and closes Instagram. Forgets all about it the next day. Rinse and repeat.*
Despite clearly being led into sin and comparison, I think I just really want to believe that I’m above😇 petty feelings like insecurity. Or I can think that “if I unfollow this girl, she will notice and be hurt💔” (which actually happened once, with a guy friend). And so I keep following these women who aren’t doing anything wrong, but whom I know I PERSONALLY shouldn’t be following.
Sisters👭, is there really anything wrong with admitting that YES I have an issue with jealousy and pride and insecurity🙋🏾♀️, and therefore I need to cut off anything not helping me to be like Jesus? At the risk of missing out on a few photos, I don’t think so.
So lol... am I the ONLY one who needs to do a little purging this weekend?🙈 📸:@JeremyMinsk
Happy..happy birthday to you..😘😘😍😍

Y O U A R E S T R O N G // Did you know that you are powerful? You have everything within you to overcome. The unveiling of our greatest vulnerabilities can often cause a tailspin of fear... but what if instead of believing in the initial fear, you chose to believe that you are thriving right here? This is where grit is being built. This is where YOU are being built. The Lord is not passive to ever leave us alone, but He will allow tension. He’s a good dad who allows tension and testing because He believes FIERCELY in you! YOU are capable of more than you could ever dream up. If the world feels like it is spinning around and within, don’t throw the towel in. Look into His eyes that blaze with fire and savor every word he says. “You are strong!” •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."” Joshua 1:9 ESV

Depression.... never discriminates... it'll come for you no matter nationality, gender, location or even AGE
Depression is an overwhelming feeling of numbness, and the endless desire for something – anything – to take you from one day to the next.
we often overlook what someone else is going thru... and definitely overlook children and how serious the battle is for them...
Rest easy Lil Cuz... Wish I could have told you how much you were needed even if you were just a "kid"
We have to stop wearing being busy as a badge of honor. Busy doing what?
“It is a pathway largely unappreciated and often despised.”😳 That hit me.
“...as you walk close to Me, I can bless others through you.” How can God use anybody not spending time with Him?
Wandering the rain forest of Rota in a state of reverence, Sacks echoes Thoreau’s ideas about nature as a form of prayer and writes:
I find myself walking softly on the rich undergrowth beneath the trees, not wanting to crack a twig, to crush or disturb anything in the least — for there is such a sense of stillness and peace that the wrong sort of movement, even one’s very presence, might be felt as an intrusion… The beauty of the forest is extraordinary — but “beauty” is too simple a word, for being here is not just an esthetic experience, but one steeped with mystery, and awe.
Ouzoud Waterfall, Marrakech (Morocco) Sunnah Travels checklist;
MUSLIM FRIENDLY ✅
Being a majority Muslim country, its definitely muslim friendly. You may get a few intrigued looks if you are dressed fully according to the sunnah but nothing more (that i have ever witnessed or heard about anyway). HALAL FOOD ✅
Small restaurants are situated around the area, but I personally recommend that you pack your own lunch or have a big breakfast because there is a bit of walking involved.
HIJAB & ABAYA ✅
Only concern you may have is getting your outfit dusty, but it will be all worth it.
If you have breathing issues then it might not be a wise to trek, however, if you are as brave as my wife then the hardship will come with the reward of the amazing sights.
Since there will be a lot of trekking involved (and immense heat if you plan to visit in the summer) then a short sleeve thobe i.e Moroccan thobe would be ideal.
Being in the middle of the mountains, there are no Masajid around the area. As we know, the whole world is a prayer place and being in an Islamic environment praying in public wouldn't be a strange matter.
A.S.K. Ask, Seek, Knock.
“Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who seeks finds, and to everyone who knocks it will be opened.” (Matt 7:7, 8; Luke 11:9, 10) These words of Jesus express a general principle. By way of contrast, a request cannot be granted until it is made, the individual who refuses to seek will not find, and the door will not be opened to the person who chooses not to knock.
Illustrating his point about making requests, Jesus raised two questions with an implied negative response. Would a father hand a stone (something resembling a loaf but of no value for nourishment) to the son who asks for bread? Would he give a serpent (a creature that was unclean for food according to the requirements of the Mosaic law) to the son who requests a fish? (Matt 7:9, 10)
Applying the point made with his questions, Jesus then gave the assurance that, since flawed (literally, “wicked,” “bad,” or “evil”) fathers know how to give good gifts to their children, how much more so would the heavenly Father “give good things to those who ask him.” (Matt 7:11). .

The Sunnah Travels checklist.... MUSLIM FRIENDLY ✅
There is a large North African community so you will see other Muslims out and about.
Barcelona: Carrer del Comte Borrell, 40, Barcelona, Catalonia 08015, Spain
HALAL FOOD ✅
If you can't go without meat for more than 4 days like myself then fear not, several halal restaurants, fast food and moroccan joints can be found on the back streets.
HIJAB & ABAYA ✅
Women wearing hijab and abaya was a common sight, especially sisters who wear colours other than black.
I would personally not recommend it due to the lack of niqabis and also Europe's strong opposition to the face veil.
The same reason as niqab.
MASJID/PRAYER AREA ❌
I gave it an "X" because I personally never saw a masjid during my stay. However, due to the large Muslim population, im sure there is a masjid or two around.
