I know it’s hard to remain faithful and committed when things don’t appear to be working out as planned. You have to trust the process and understand that nothing happens over night. Stay faithful. The reward will come.
Bread from Heaven
Through Christ we have undergone what St. Paul calls a spiritual revolution and we can no longer be satisfied with material things. We need the food that comes from heaven, the bread of life which we receive at this Mass.
Draw near to your servants, O Lord, and answer their prayers with unceasing kindness, that, for those who glory in You as their Creator and guide, You may restore what You have created and keep safe what You have restored.
Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.🙏 #18thsundayinordinarytime#breadfromheaven#JesusChrist#sundaymass#prayers 🙏 #catholicism#romancatholic#staycatholic#remainfaithful#catholicchurch
“Stay faithful in the little.
It is enough. It does not go unseen.
All the striving and the seeking for more - should be replaced with more of Me.
The harvest will come.
Continuing sowing, day after day, seed after seed. Stay faithful. For I am your faithful God evermore. “ ||| “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9 #GIRLSWHOPRAY
when we go through tribulations
we often focus on our circumstance.
we focus on those who betrayed us
we focus on our lack of finance
we focus on the hurt that causes depression.
we focus on so many things that are only part of little chapter of our lives and we forget the purpose of all these trials
if joseph was not betrayed by his brothers he wouldn't have met potiphar.
if potiphar's wife didn't try to seduce joseph and defamed he wouldn't have been sent to the pit and if he wasn't sent to the pit he wouldn't have demonstrated the power of his gift to the two men that were with him in the pit.
one of those men became a servant of pharaoh and informed pharaoh of Joseph and his gift when Pharoah was in need of an intepreter of dreams.. all these situations led him to be governor.
god says : rejoice for all things work together for those who love me and have faith and humility and i will take you to places you never imagined you would. 💯 💎💥👼 -Supernatural-
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
Oh let’s not forget how faithful God is!!! His promise still stands ladies! Let’s praise God for the things He has already done for us and will continue to do!! #promisesofGod#remainfaithful#trustGod#Jesuswillneverfailyou
The song Abomination by Reformers is so theologically sound and hard hitting. You may not be into or like metal but you should got find this son on YouTube and hear the message it gives. We truly are beginning to see many people and those that professed Jesus as Savior believe a lie. They are turning to what feels good and listening to false truths. I believe that some of the blame fall on Christians, me included, that sit back and let it happen. Jesus wouldn't have sat there He would have proclaimed truth without fear. We have that same Spirit within us; we can be bold and confront sin in love. If we are tolerant then we hate, not being tolerant is more loving. You may be hated for it and Jesus said you would be because they hated Him first. However, that shouldn't stop us from speaking the truth because too many souls are on the line.
Oh my ❤, I did not realize how much I have missed hosting friends & family. ❤😍 Thankful for these angels, their momma & my new bestie Preston (No words. We have came such a long way 😍😂). Next time pics of all. ❤
We are so blessed that mid renovation we have people in our lives who are willing to drive to the country to see this piece of paradise we are creating. To help us rejoice and play during all the hard work. That are just as excited as we are for the future. We ❤ the Weathers Family! (Now to plan for when the hubbys/daddys can join us.) One day post reno & actual move in, I will share the amazing works God has done. There are so many blessings and answered prayers, big & small. Its a wonderful humbling testimony.

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 ❤️

When my walk in faith gets tough and I struggle to pursue God's will and purpose, He sends reminders of His goodness. Today was such a day where He reminded me that I am not alone on this walk.
By God's will, we just so happened to be in the same city at the same time! #notacoincidence This was our second time meeting each other, and our first DnM, but knowing that we are both grounded in Christ created an almost instantaneous and special bond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's something very interesting about having a friend who is also short statured: there's just so much you can relate to! But there's something more special when this friend also shares the same struggles and deep joy in running the race for God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through this, God's taken me away from the small worries in life to refocus on the bigger picture.
His bigger picture.
And I am thankful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So wherever we are, let's continue to run the race, my friend!
Dear Daughters of Christ, ✨
Stand firm on the Word of God. There are so many obstacles that may come your way, so many things that can go wrong and so many ways your faith will be tested. But remember the promises of God’s Word, and remember that His Word is true. Jesus fulfilled the scriptures; He died for us and saved us from sin and condemnation so that we might have life and relationship with God the Father. If you believe that Christ is Lord, then you believe the Word of God.
The Christian Church today is seemingly becoming more and more worldly. Leaders and influencers of the Christian faith are starting to present a new Gospel; one that fails to recognize that holiness is the goal, and we must resist our fleshly desires. But remember that God has never changed and will never change. He is the same as He has always been. He will be the same for eternity. Therefore His Word has not changed, though it may be applied differently in today’s society. His commands remain the same. Sin remains sin, and Jesus remains our Savior. Never compromise the Word to fit society’s standards.
Stand firm in the Word of the Lord, keep the faith and press on towards Jesus.
I Chronicles 2 “These are the sons of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun …” (v1). Chronicles traces the important lines of descent from Jacob/Israel, demonstrating how God kept His promise to bring Abraham’s children into the Promised Land (the genealogies also supported families’ claims of ownership). The family tree included examples of human sinfulness: Jacob’s manipulations, Judah’s sin with Tamar, Achan, “the troubler of Israel” (v7) etc. Boaz, Caleb, and others displayed obedient trust in the Lord. However, it was only God Himself who remained faithful throughout the generations. “In your offspring all the nations of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen 22:18). Israel blessed the world not through their own righteousness, but through God’s unfailing mercy, faithfulness, and love. -Deborah Galyen #NCManna
It’s very easy to become filled with anger and hate in today’s society. In a busy world full of expectations, judgement, greed and jealousy, it’s inevitable that Satan lingers, awaiting his chance to prance on the vulnerable, tempting them and leading them to thoughts of anger and resentment. Without being close to Christ and understanding his true teachings and way of life, it becomes extremely difficult to adhere to the teachings of Christianity in which draw us closer to Jesus Christ himself.
Despite the wrong doings of others around us, and the unjust treatment that individuals may encounter, come face to face with the feelings of anger and remain focused and faithful to Jesus Christ himself, remembering the core teaching of agape love. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also”.
God knows your true intentions. ❤️ #bibleverse#jesuschrist#biblestudy#agapelove#christianity#remainfaithful#matthew538
Trust God even in the midst of choas! We don't have control over everything that may occur. Today has been a day for me, of unexpected things to occur. First thing I did was took control over my response, and gave the situation to God. God sent some angels to help me. God is good. Thanking God for my destiny helpers! Thanking God for my prayer warriors, and those who speak a word of encouragement in times I need it.
