Tender Mercies // Earlier this week I had an experience that taught me how God is involved in the very details of our lives. I had to take an early morning flight to Maryland, and needless to say, I was very groggy when I arrived at the airport. Luckily, I was seated next to the window just in front of the wing. As we began to take off, beautiful steaks of light filled the sky. As we continued over Lake Michigan, we passed by some of the most beautiful clouds I’ve ever seen. I was in awe. I took photos but the images didn’t do the experience justice. I tell you this because shortly after seeing such a beautiful sight, we were told that we had to turn around due to a mechanical error. Lucky for us we got to see the entire show over again! We didn’t end up going to Maryland, but thanks to God, He made that early wake up and a longer day worth it. He knew we wouldn’t end up going to Maryland, but He also knew that I love clouds and would be happy to see what He made for me. When things don’t always go as planned, maybe God is trying to show you something else. Maybe He is trying to show you His tender mercies.
Behold, God is my salvation
Or Saviour; that is, Christ, who is God, the great God, and so fit to be a Saviour, and is one, was appointed by the Father, provided in covenant, promised in the word, sent in the fulness of time, and is become the author of salvation, which a creature could not be; and this the church saw her interest in, and which was the ground of her comfort before declared; and to which she prefixed the word "behold", as a note of asseveration, affirming him to be her Saviour; and of admiration, wondering at it; and of exclusion of all others from being concerned therein; and of attention and direction to others, pointing him out as the only one to look unto.
I will trust, and not be afraid;
"trust" in Christ for salvation, be confident of enjoying it, and look upon myself safe and secure from all wrath and condemnation, and from every enemy; and not be "afraid" of sin, Satan, the world, death, hell, and wrath to come.
for the LORD JEHOVAH is "my strength and my song":
the author of her spiritual strength; the "strength" of her life, and of her heart, which maintained the one, and supported the other; the strength of her graces, and of her duties, by which she exercised the one, and performed the other: and the subject matter of her "song" were his person, and the fulness and fitness of it, his righteousness, and salvation by him; this clause, and the following one, are taken out of ( Exodus 15:2 ).
he also is become my salvation;
salvation is wrought out by Christ, and believers have it in him, and they know it, and believe it, and so are already saved in him.
(Commentaries: John Gill's Exposition of the Bible)
1 Peter 4:17
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:... "
I have heard people quote this scripture with all the joy they can muster, like they are the judge, also to shame (believers) the body of Christ.
When in actual fact the emphasis is on the remaining part of the verse; "... and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" believe the Word of God, you don't want to know about the end of the disobedient.
It was Smith Wigglesworth who said these words, "Hell is such an awful place that even the demons hate the thought of going there. How much more should men seek to be saved from the pit?" Believers, makes mistakes too, but that does not make an outcast, that is why God the Judge of all, will be the one to determine the acts that are deliberate and the ones that are unintentional or error. God determines what causes what, and on what premise, not man. "We justify our actions by appearances; God examines our motives."
Proverbs 21:2 "For I am NOT ASHAMED of the GOSPEL of CHRIST: for it is the POWER of God unto SALVATION to EVERY ONE that BELIEVETH;..." Romans 1:16
Jesus is Lord!

Taking a step outside your comfort zone isn’t easy.
But you’ll never know what your capable of if you don’t try. 👊🏻 And it’s expected that you’ll fall down, make mistakes, mess up, have to start over and try again. IT’S OK!! Because like my sweet daughter told me yesterday, “If you believe in yourself, you can do anything!” She’s right!!! I asked her where she heard that and she said she thought of it herself!! #proudmommoment
I have a bucket list of things I want to do. One of those things is “Ride a tandem bike in a big city with someone I love.” We aren’t riding this bike. We are in the middle of an airport and some Chinese ladies talked us into taking this photo. And I had just met Jess a few days prior.
I have talked to women all over the globe and especially in the USA, women have lists of things they want to do “once they find their person.” I would be a liar if I said I didn’t have this list at some point myself. Because creating memories with the one you love, has quite the ring to it.
Here’s the thing, I threw that list out at 24 because in all honesty, I could no longer put my life on hold while waiting for this dude to show up. Sure, I wanted to travel the world with him but I couldn’t wait around until he appeared and if I would have, well, I would have already wasted 8 solid years in doing so.
So to the single folk out there, male OR female. Don’t put your life on hold in waiting for that significant other. Go explore, travel the world, start the business, buy the house, build the dream, go on that road trip, climb that mountain, and watch the stars on that beach.
Sure, it might not be how you imagined it, but one day you will thank me. Because you will look back and realize you didn’t waste a second in waiting around on that other person to show up. You appreciated that moment. You embraced the season. You showed up for your life.
And one day, the person looking back at you will thank you for using every moment to it’s fullest. Maybe that person is your significant other. Maybe it’s your future spouse. Maybe it’s the love of your life. But that person, will always, also be you.
Reminder: *The King is coming back soon brothers and sisters! Prepare your hearts 💕and your home for His second coming! Start researching bible prophecy and all the signs Jesus gives us of His soon return. Matthew 24 is a good place to start. Look around you.. volcanoes erupting as we speak in different parts of the world,earthquakes everywhere more than ever, strange weather patterns,etc etc.. its time we wake up and get right with God. He’s gracious,compassionate and always ready to have a heart ❤️ to heart ❤️ conversation.
There is no shame in not being okay. We all have hard days, rough patches, and difficult seasons. We have anxiety, depression, broken hearts and so much more. It’s okay not to be okay. There’s no shame in it.
You’re never alone! God is always with you. Whatever you’re going through today, rest in the fact that the Lord sees you, hears your prayers, and loves you more than you could ever imagine.

It’s never easy when we’re in the midst of the storm. It’s never easy when we end up losing some things in the process. The truth is, most storms clear out things that God no longer wants in your life. At least not for now. Many times he allows a storm to clear out things so that it can make room for something better.

GOD Bless You!
(Slide to see 8 photos) The Levite Priestly Blessing creates a diamond shape. This diamond shape is embedded within the wheels of God's throne. And in the film Anno Domini (1985) it is the symbol of the Jewish Temple doors, as well as on artwork on the walls inside. Peter the Apostle stands at the door of the temple, and Paul the Apostle is inside the temple speaking to priests. The handsign for Shin is the handsign for God's name as Shaddai. When someone makes a peace hand sign, a middle finger handsign, a devil's horn handsign, or a pyramid handsign used by Jay Z/Hitler and in voodoo, they are trying to curse you. If someone gives you a wicked handsign, you can bless yourself with these handsigns immediately. The peace sign seems innocent but it is a V for Vanity. It is a symbol of the city in Pilgrim's Progress called Vanity Fair. That is the city where Lucifer reigns with sexual sin, alcohol, prophecies, witchcraft, partying. The V symbol is used by the the devil masquerading as a false Jesus, the Satan statue, and Satan as the Beelzebub/Baphomet statue as the Lord of the Flies. The peace sign was huge during the 1960's hippie era where they liked sexual sin of free love. The flower child movement of the 1960's and Woodstock opened the door to the City of Vanity Fair in the USA. Do not make wicked handsigns. You do not want to curse your hands. Meaning your finances, ability to get a job, your talents, addictions, eating disorders, smoking, and even injuries involving your hands like driving aka car accidents. If you have a bad habit of making bad handsigns, practice these 100 times until you retrain your brain. #illuminati#apologetics#christian#christianity#christianwomen#womenfortrump#messianiccommunity#messianicjews#messianicchristian#christianstudents#students4trump#christianposts#evangelism
God, you are the God of truth, and you delight in those who are honest and true. I ask for your help today to “keep falsehood and deceitful words far from me” (Proverbs 30:8). Help me to be a person of honesty and integrity today. Show me the areas of my life where I need to grow in this more. Amen.
God's grace is sufficient. Put Your faith in the power and grace of God. For His Word says, -My grace is sufficient for you, for my power, is made perfect in weakness- (2 Corinthians 12:9).⠀

We must pursue peace and sanctification through Gods word, which is truth. Without this we are unable to see the Lord. Let’s pursue these things so that we can know, assuredly, we will be people who see the Lord!
Hey friends!! I am taking a 1 week break from social media, because I have found myself with a phone in my hand more than I would like and can sense a deep need to break away from this unhealthy pattern.
I find myself touching my phone, more than my Bible.
I have stared at my phone more than into the eyes of my littles.
I have given more attention to the words on this screen than my husband’s voice.
So I am stepping back, trying to find a balance to be more present with my children, to enjoy my real life and prioritize God’s presence.
See you in a week, friends!
God’s Word is our guide 💯
The Bible teaches us that our hearts are deceitful by nature and our flesh (our original human/sinful nature) works against obedience to God and His Word. Those that live in the flesh cannot please God.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 NIV
It’s our responsibility as believers to be examples of how to love one another like Christ loves us. When the Church is united and working together, the world can see how life-changing the love of Christ really is.
1Timothy 1:5 - The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
Colossians 3:23-24 - And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
I’m not smiling in this — & it just shows how deceiving pictures can be. because I can assure you my heart is over flowing with joy. complete joy, in aweness of the Lord, and feeling His love immensely.
for the joy of the Lord is my strength, oh yes it is. •• 💛
The devil tried to make me lose my mind some years ago, but one thing stayed constant, I never lost my praise. Hence, I became stronger and wiser.
I also like to think that I’ve been prepared for tough times even as a child because my mom wasn’t my biggest fan growing up, and at some point, I asked to know my mother (lol). But one thing I am ever grateful for is that her discipline (though not delivered in my style) taught me contentment. **Don’t get me wrong! My mom is phenomenal in many ways, and I have learned to love her unconditionally. She is also the first person who taught me philanthropy long before I started reading the Bible. Probably, the most industrious woman I know too. ** ________________________
We must remind ourselves not to live by other people’s definition of happiness. It’s vague!
For example, what’s your definition of wealth or joy? You may earn $1,000 and live happily. But, someone earning $100,000 in the same circumstance may lack contentment. Or even still you may both earn the same $100,000, but have different outcomes; because you choose to focus on different things.
Choose what makes you happy! “If you are living, then live truly.” __________________________
You probably know one of my favorite artists; every time I listen to “I Look To You” by Whitney Houston, it reminds me of my obligation to share love and hope, and be happy. Interestingly, Whitney, in her last song 'Celebrate' encourages us to do the same. Please watch the song titled “Celebrate” by Whitney Houston & Jordin Sparks, and make sure you catch the #goodvibes 💃🏾😁 ___________________________
As always, I too I’m a work in progress, and I understand that there are times it’s easier said than done. But I’m certainly not where I was 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 years ago. I’m making progress. You can do it too!
Have a fabulous week!👌🏽
