1. a sound, especially one that is loud or unpleasant or that causes disturbance.
Noise: that overwhelming feeling of loneliness, that aunt who keeps asking you when you’re getting married, the fear that good and godly men don’t actually exist, the fear that you’ll never meet anyone in your city, the sound of that ticking clock in your head that only you can hear, your hormones, your discontentment with your life as a single woman, insecurity, the fear that you’re not good enough, that your Holy Spirit inspired expectations are too high, hopelessness, or doubt in God. NOISE is that unpleasant and disturbing thing that, if left unchecked, can drive you to settle for something outside of God’s will for your life. And anything outside of God’s will for your life is NOT right for you. God can show you that this man is not the right man for you, but loneliness is far too loud, and it will drive you to ignore every red flag if you let it. You know that this man is not leading you closer to God and that you’re not equally yoked, but the fear that real godly men don’t exist and that this is as good as it gets drives you to stay, justifying it with grace. You KNOW that this man is nowhere near meeting the godly standards that you prayed for your husband to have, but the noise of your discontentment will convince you that God is the kind of God who will give you LESS than what you prayed for instead of more—which would make the Bible a LIE. But you can’t see the difference between a distraction and a God sent because you just want the noise to go away—you don’t care that you’re compromising, that you’re settling, and that this is NOT GOD’s plan for you. You’re trying to fill a need, but without taking any thought for what your PROVIDER has to say about it. Trust me when I say that God is not going to place the right man in front of you while you’re still following NOISE and not His truth. Ask God to help you get away from all the external noise that you can get away from, to not be swayed by it. And if the noise is within you...(continued in comments)
12 That thy glory may rest down upon thy people, and upon this thy house, which we now dedicate to thee, that it may be sanctified and consecrated to be holy, and that thy holy presence may be continually in this house; 13 And that all people who shall enter upon the threshold of the Lord’s house may feel thy power, and feel constrained to acknowledge that thou hast sanctified it, and that it is thy house, a place of thy holiness. 14 And do thou grant, Holy Father, that all those who shall worship in this house may be taught words of wisdom out of the best books, and that they may seek learning even by study, and also by faith, as thou hast said; 15 And that they may grow up in thee, and receive a fulness of the Holy Ghost, and be organized according to thy laws, and be prepared to obtain every needful thing;
Wow what an amazing sermon today by Gene
Jesus preformed so many miracles while He was here on earth. People were healed because they believed that Jesus could heal them.
Jesus healed various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed.... Jesus healed them. Matthew 4:24 “Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.”
Matthew 9:22 “He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.””
Mark 5:34 “Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.””
Are you seeing a pattern here? In Three different verses it says your faith has healed you! #Jesus#healing#scripture#salvation @new_vision_4_valley
Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
I gave my full heart, my "yes" to God on my 20th birthday. I went to an early 7am mass with my mom and grandma to pray for a blessed year. Before leaving church, I went on my knees to tell God that I didn't want to waste time away from Him ever again.
When I said "yes" to Him, I said "yes" to being a servant to Christ and all His people. I said "yes, I deserve to love myself the way Christ loves me, despite my mistakes." I said "yes, I can lay down my life for the sake of His will." I gave God full permission to allow the Holy Spirit to work within me.
Saying "yes" to God is a great place to start in your walk of faith. I encourage you to remember to say "yes" to His will everyday so that He may do wonders with you!!
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
PRAY MORE ,WORRY LESS WHEN YOU FACE PROBLEMS

Most disagreements are rooted in our desire to not give up what we like. Yet we can find peace and joy simply by preferring others. When we surrender our need to be right, our need to get our way, our preferred method, we make room for a whole new world of opportunity. .
I honestly think this is the beginning of what Jesus meant when he said things like the greatest expression of love is laying down your life for a friend, love your enemies, love your neighbor like you love yourself. (John 15:13, Matthew 5:44, Mark 12:31)
Our world changes the moment we change. .
Hebrews 10:23-25 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,
not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. "
Proverbs 20:24. It is human nature for us to live our lives with one eye looking toward the future. As much as we try to live in the present, we are always looking ahead to what decisions and steps we need to make down the road, and we often worry about where we are going next or what we will be doing next. As we focus on what steps we need to make, we run through all the scenarios and options that we have in hopes that we will do the best thing for us. So why are we so focused on our next steps? Maybe we are desiring to have control and planning is the only way for us to try to control the outcome of our future. Maybe we have our own plan for our lives that we believe must happen. Maybe we want to understand every step we make and understand how everything happening today will affect our tomorrow. As Christians, we must realize that God is the one who directs our steps. We may try to force things our way, but God controls what happens in our lives and where we are heading. We may make plans for our lives, but God is one who has already planned our lives, and His will is always fulfilled. Instead of worrying and focusing on trying to understand everything going in our lives and our next step, we should take comfort and relieve in knowing that God is directing our steps. He will guide us and direct us down the path that is best for us if we will only listen to Him. When God is guiding, we need to listen to Him and follow Him because His path is best for our lives. We will not always understand what God is doing or where He is leading us, and that is okay because we can trust that He is directing our steps down the right path.
for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:8-10 ESV ☕✴✴
Do not be deceived by the current unfavorable circumstance which tries to break you into pieces. Try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. ✳✳✳✳✳✳
