I love being "LOVED" and most especially I LOVE TO LOVE THOSE ''UNLOVABLE". ;) Hard task to make but "nothing is impossible" if you are living in the grace and Words of God.
Living in the Christian life is very challenging because you live in the sufferings and hardships of Jesus. But Christian life is a call to everyone, no matter who you are; no matter how rich or poor you are; no matter how famous or least you are. Still we are all equal in the eyes of God.
"We must not waste our time on looking and searching for the things here on earth but be transformed by the renewing of the mind."(Romans12:2)
--Let us seek everyday for the heavenly things; to see the unseen and DO the Impossible.
♥♥♥JESUS loves YOU and Me. And He thinks of us every second, every minute, every time, EVERYDAY! ;)
I-AM-FREE Because Jesus Paid His Life For My Freedom. I am not saying this because I am clean, strong, and perfect, because I'm not. Its just I love to tell the world how God cares for you and me. You might say that I am "crazy" because I take Jesus thing too seriously, but I am gorgeously, surely, amazingly believed that Christ took me pretty seriously when HE died for me on the Cross. :)

God is writing my love story!(:
I believe that people can change, because I have seen it happen…however if a person isn’t willing to do so you can’t make them do it. Just like with getting better if you don’t work for it then you never will really get there. I’ve made my share of mistakes and I have done things I am not proud of but because of all the trials I went through and am still going through I have become a much stronger person. I was wondering the other day if I could go back to 2012 and be given… another chance at it where would I be? But I realized that I wouldn’t be the same person if none of that happened. Everything that happens to us in life, happens for a reason. The bad things lead to better things and I wouldn’t wish to go back for a second chance. What I have now means a lot to me, and I worked hard to get where I’m at. I am not ashamed of what I have gone through and am not afraid to talk about the past because that’s what it is. I am a changed person, I have come a long way and although it wasn’t easy, it all had to happen. I have plans for my future ones that I would have never imagined of having and I’m going to use my struggles to help others when I’m done with school. I have a long life ahead of me and I’m not looking back unless it’s going to help someone else. I have seen a lot of change this past year not just within me but in others around me, some good, some bad. I notice things that before probably wouldn’t have bothered me but now make me uncomfortable. I have friendships that have held me back from being who I need to be and from doing what I have to do. I have friendships where things just aren’t the same as they once used to be and I have new friendships that make me notice what true friends are and all that I used to have with some just isn’t there anymore. I have a lot to do in this life, I have a lot to give and I am not going to let anyone get in the way of God’s plan for me. I have my faith and it is what has helped me through so much this past year and without it I probably wouldn’t have gotten through it all. I am not ashamed to say I love Jesus Christ and that I’m thankful for everything I have because of what he did for us. My faith isn’t a joke and if anyone makes a joke out of it, it’s just clear to me that they don’t belong in my life. I can’t force someone to come to the lord, I found that out, but I won’t end my relationship with him because you aren’t comfortable with it. When I die I know he has a place for me in Heaven. In the meantime I’m going to try to be the best Christian I can be. Does that mean I’m going to be perfect and never make mistakes? No, but that doesn’t mean I won’t try!
Jesus, your cross changes everything. I make mistakes every single day and I’m so sorry. Thankyou that by dying for me, my sin is covered by you. Your love for me is so undeserved, and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making me clean again.
The dream in your heart may be bigger than the environment in which you find yourself. Sometimes you have to get out of that environment in order to see that dream fulfilled. Consider an oak tree. If you plant it in a pot, it can grow no further. The problem is not with the tree; it is with the environment. It is stifling growth. Perhaps you have bigger things in your heart than your present environment can facilitate. That’s why, at times, God will stir you out of a comfortable situation.
When you go through persecution and rejection, it’s not always because somebody has it in for you. Sometimes that’s God’s way of directing you into His perfect will. He’s trying to get you to stretch to the next level. He knows you’re not going to go without a push, so He’ll make it uncomfortable for you to stay where you are currently. The mistake we make at times is getting negative and sour; we focus on what didn’t work out. When we do that, we inhibit the opening of new doors.
I’m supposed to give my testimony in front of a crowd this week but I’m super nervous. I don’t do well in the spot light. Can someone please give me advice? This will be my very first time doing it :/
Anyone? Send me a message!
If you feel far from God today —
He’s okay with that. You can draw near Him and tell Him, “I feel far away from You.” Jesus welcomes your doubts, confusion, frustrations, and questions. He invites you in any and every condition.
If you’re mad at God today —
He’s okay with that. He made…
"Woe to me!" I cried, "I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty."
Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which had taken with tongs from the alter. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your…
What can we say about God’s love? We can say that God’s love is unconditional. God does not say, “I love you, if …” There are no ifs in God’s heart. God’s love for us does not depend on what we do or say, on our looks or intelligence, on our success or popularity. God’s love for us existed before…
So the other day, I realized there are a TON of Christian churches in my area. After some research, I found out that there are 20+ around my home. Then after some more research, I realized there are only 2 homeless shelters in the area. Yes, only 2.
So I had this idea: What if churches opened up…
So Jesus didn’t free you from depression,
Rescue you from drug addiction,
Defeat your drinking demons,
Get you off the streets,
Or end your criminal life.
But He saved you from sin, restored you to life, and has done the most wondrous thing of all: loved you. That’s worth sharing. Your testimony is inspiring because it’s about Jesus.
Consume my heart with your everlasting love. Hold me in your perfect grace that continually saves me.
I wonder if Jesus ever looked at his disciples when they were doubting and going astray, smiled, and thought to himself “they have no idea what they are about to do for my kingdom”.
And then I wonder if Jesus looks at me in my moments of sin and weakness, smiles, and thinks to himself “she has no idea what she is about to do for my kingdom”.
In my moments of weakness, Satan tries to define me by my past. You can remind me all you want of my past but you will have no more power over me. I will not allow you to bring despair into my heart and rob me of my hope. I am a beloved daughter of God. He has an infinite love for me that continually gives me strength and joy. And I will continually strive to be worthy of that love and faith that He has in me.
