Whatever influence we allow in our heart being good or bad will bring about decisions and actions that will affect us. .
A few questions to ask ourselves: is this bringing me closer to Christ? Is this Life-giving and adding value? Is this helping me get better? Am I growing in my purpose? Is this what God wants for me? Or is it driven by selfishness? Is it leading me to a dead end? Is it just lust? Is it pride and bitterness taking over? I'm I just thinking about myself? .
We must choose wisely to what? and in who? We let into our hearts. Keeping a purposeful mindset for our lives. As Christ followers, God has given us the right desires and the power to please Him. Guarding our heart above all else is a priority God calls us to stay vigilant in doing for our lives. .
You see God wants the best for us: The right relationships. The right job placement. The right person to marry. The right vision. The right intentions and motives to be a blessing. The right character. The right perspective. The right way. The right drive. The right truth. The right life. The right prosperity that starts from within. The right love. The right faith. The right hope and a future. .
Guarding our hearts is a serious matter for our lives. We must know how to guard it and to be aligned with the One who Guards it best, God Himself. Choose wisely to who and what we let in our hearts. Walk in God’s power purposefully towards your destiny. ————————————————————————-

In fondo è così: basta una notte a cambiare una vita. Basta un battito di ciglia a stravolgere una prospettiva eterna. Eppure un’inattesa brusca svolta può non bastare a spezzare un legame viscerale. Cambierà, si trasformerà, ma sarà per sempre un dipinto fantastico sul muro bianco dell’esistenza.
Claudio sarà sempre il ragazzino della Primavera che ha alzato la testa, impettito, quando hanno provato ad ammazzare l’anima bianconera. Per lui resterà una 8 a difesa di uno stile di vita, prima che di una fede.
Claudio è una delle ultime espressioni di vera juventinità. Non quella gridata, che salta in curva e gira le spalle all’improvviso, ma un modo di fare unico e inimitabile. La sua classe innata e la sua compostezza stupefacente si sono riversate in campo così come nella quotidianità.
A chi respira Juventus, a chi la vive, Claudio mancherà dannatamente. Resterà un esempio: per talento, dedizione, eleganza. Mai una parola fuori posto, sempre una grinta pulita a guidare un intero popolo verso la vittoria.💗🏳️🏴 @marchisiocla8 #claudiomarchisio#juventus#love#juventinità#passion#bandiere#forzajuventus#respect#italia#torino#thegreatest#photooftheday#foto
"Whats my name!?" Ali spent the the entire fight showing the crowd and then flurrying bunches of 5 or 6 punches at once - just hard enough to be punishing, but not hard enough to rock him or risk putting him down - and then in between each flurry stopping, droppjng his own hands and screaming "Whats my name!!" right in Terrell's face. Ernie wouldn't yield, but without the skill to stop Ali makng an example of him, let alone the ability to punch with him or counter to any great effect, he simply had to grimace his way through, all he could do to wave Ali on gesturing to him to give him some more, in an attempt at reverse psychology. He knew this was pre planned well in advance, Ali having openly warned Terrell in the media, "I want to torture him. A clean knockout is too good for him."
There’s something in all of us that tends to
divide people into two categories: we and they. We hang
out with people who are like us (we), and we distance
ourselves from those who are unlike us (they). Is this the
way we’re supposed to live? This week in our series called
The Greatest, we’ll learn that a simple conversation can
bridge the gap between we and they. #TheGreatest#LOVEFIRST
Major #momfail missing out on all of the back to school photo opps. this week. This homeschool mommy was just #stayinalive . Kaiden started 5th grade with a cracked collar bone and a positive attitude, while little miss Ever (the adorable little photo bomber in the 2nd photo) started pre-k with #allofthesass . We learned, we created, we laughed, we cried. And when I say we, I mean me. And on Friday afternoon we celebrated surviving, I mean killin’ our first week with a trip to beach.
VITAMIN D YA’LL! #canigetawitness
Transitioning from a public school teacher into a home schooling mom is still a work in progress. Thank dear Jesus that His mercies are new every morning! Daily I remind myself that we’re playing the long game, to take my eyes off of the trees and take in the beauty of the forest.
P.S. teachers (public school, home school, private), I’m still praying for you. I’ll never stop. You have the greatest job on the planet. The most difficult job maybe, but also #thegreatest . May the Lord strengthen you afresh each morning and carry you through even the most difficult of days. May he anoint the words of your mouth to bless and the touch of your hands to heal. You’re doing something truly beautiful. You’ve got this! #appreciateourteachers
