Reminder: Keep pressing on!

Before I head out from work, I wanted to quickly share these words with you:

KEEP PRESSING ON!!

These last several weeks have been HARD but I finally had a breakthrough yesterday. It’s awesome to have someone in your corner that will not be afraid to intercede (also known as intervene on behalf of another) and pray for you when you don’t even have the strength to do so. Of course, you want to always turn to God as we are instructed to in 1 Peter 5:7. It tells us to give all our worries and cares to God, for He cares about us.

“Sound The Alarm” πŸ“£ – A.Life Retreat

I’m grateful that God has allowed me to attend this retreat (first retreat ever) & I’m looking forward to an awesome experience. Not only have I been praying for an open heart & mind in order to RECEIVE all that God has in store for us but that I also APPLY it to my life.

Saved by Grace πŸ‘‘πŸ’“

Currently listening to one of my go-to playlists.

A few weeks ago, I began to read the book of Proverbs. I had been desiring for more of God and of His Word. God truly knows our heart’s desires and will fulfill them as He sees fit. Several months ago, I joined a book study at one of my friend’s church and we created a group chat on Whatsapp so that we can stay in communication. One of the girls in our chat encouraged us to join her in reading the book of Proverbs. This was only just a couple of weeks ago and it’s been awesome. When we truly are intentional about spending time with God and reading His Word, the Holy Spirit will give us the understanding we need and will reveal things that can only be revealed to us with His help.

Let’s talk about S.E.X.!Β 

You did NOT come across this post by coincidence. There’s a message God wants to speak to your heart about that has been hindering you from the plans God has for your life. He wants to set you FREE! He wants to RENEW your mind. He wants to HEAL you. There’s POWER in the name of Jesus. If He did it for me, He most definitely can do it for you as well.

How to Help Your Children Read the Bible πŸ“–πŸ’‘

Upon doing some reading online today, I came across an article – How to Help Your Children Read the Bible.

Not only is it important for me to read the Bible & learn more about Jesus but it’s just as important for my children to learn about Jesus too. My prayer is that they will accept Him as their Lord & Savior someday – sooner than later – just as we have. This is a decision they can only make but it is our responsibility as their parents to teach them about Jesus & show them the way. It is also our responsibility to be the best example we can be by showing them the true meaning of unconditional love, grace, mercy & forgiveness – just like our Heavenly Father shows us – day in & day out.

How I came to know Jesus

I had been contemplating on whether or not I should share this post for several days now because many people see the love I have for Jesus but don’t know the story behind my praise. The purpose in sharing my testimony is not for pity nor am I seeking for attenion but to illustrate God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness & over all God’s love for us. However, I’ve come a long way & still have a long way to go. As long as I am still breathing, I will be learning & growing as a human being & most importantly as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Grace that overcomes ALL! πŸ•‡πŸ’•πŸŒ»

β€œSo he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. His son said to him, β€˜Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.” – Luke 15:20‭-‬21

Here’s a story about a son who asks his dad for his inheritance way before it’s time. His father grants his wish & he chooses to go far away & pretty much “lives it up”. After some time has passed, he runs out of all the inheritance that was given to him. He realizes he was better off living with his dad because he had all that he needed. When he finally came to his senses, he realized he had turned his back on his father. He chose the life he thought would be much more satisfying than the life he had been currently living only to leave him feeling empty & lost. When he realized what he had done, he committed himself to go back & ask for His father’s forgiveness. His father had been waiting for him all this time. Once he saw him from a distance, he ran to his son. Embraced him with opens arms & celebrated his return.

Jacob’s Song 🎢

Jesus said that many are called but few are chosen. I believe that God changes hearts. It is God that puts the desire in a person’s heart that causes them to want to follow Him. He’s the Author & Finisher of our faith. This can be very encouraging to us who are praying desperately for ourselves or for loved ones.

Enough is Enough!

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” – John C. Maxwell

I came across this quote & it made me reflect on myself & how I’ve held back from accomplishing many things.
What negative thoughts do you allow yourself to ponder on? Are you relying on your own strength or God’s strength? Where does your faith lie on? On self? Others? Things?

True joy comes from Christ alone!

Day 1 – I’ve read the book of Philippians in the past but I felt as though I needed a refresher before starting today’s devotional.Β I own several bibles but one I use in particular when studying is the Life Application Study Bible (NLT). Upon reading the introduction, I was reminded of something very important.

When you think of happiness, what comes to mind? For me, itΒ would be …
