When nothing makes sense in the present season, and you need a fresh motivation or friendly reminder of why it is that you've sacrificed so much for God and live a consecrated life when the going gets tough. Seek after the simple gospel, don't overcomplicate. Simply evangelize. When you evangelize everything will begin to make sense again, God's heart is in evangelism it beats for souls, and if you're desperate to get to know God, when you're one w someone you feel comfortable laying your head on their chest to hear their heart beating, i tell you now to feel comfortable placing your head om God's chest in worship and listen to His heart beat for souls, for the multitudes. Truly knowing God involves our commitment to obey. And we're all trying to get to know Him deeper. Walk in obedience.
We're commanded to make disciples of all nations, step out unto the street before you and you will see a Dominican, boricuan, and Columbian standing together that's 3 nations right there to witness to..
Yesterday a beautiful strong woman purchased this shirt. She shared her heart and a little bit of her story with me and I will be forever blessed because of her. .
Today I think of her as she prepares to go to Harrisburg to petition our state senate to change the statute of limitations law she will be wearing this shirt. Today she has a voice and I know she and all other abuse victims will be heard.
7 years feels like forever ago that the 3 of our dreams come true.
I don't know when their dream started, but I remember being 16 years old, holding my first born, Aaron for the first time and thinking I wanted to have a baby for someone. The pure love and joy in that moment was something everyone deserves to experience. Surrogacy was easily the most fulfilling thing I've ever done, and it's strange how such a selfless act could also be so selfish. 💕 Happy birthday to Mr Shep!
Jesus taught that our generous and constant forgiveness of sin should be the natural result of our understanding of the forgiveness that God has extended to us. Forgiven people should be forgiving people.
In The Lord's Prayer, Jesus instructed us to pray, " 'forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors' " (Matthew 6:12). He was saying, "As you are receiving the forgiveness from God for the wrong that you have done, be sure to extend that same forgiveness to others who have wronged you." It's all connected.
This is important; because, we are often on a quest to find that perfect something. We want the perfect husband. The perfect wife. The perfect church. The perfect friends. The perfect children. But we don't find that perfection, because the people we expect to be perfect are just like us. They are flawed. We all are. We have to recognize that we sin and that people sin against us as well. We should forgive them, as we ourselves have been forgiven. The apostle Paul wrote, "And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you" (Ephesians 4:32).
A man once came to the great preacher John Wesley and said, "I never forgive, and I never forget." Wesley replied by saying, "Well, sir, I hope, then, that you never sin."
Are you willing to be judged with the same judgment that you judge others with? "I never forgive and I never forget"—I'm so thankful God doesn't deal with me that way. He is willing to forgive and forget. And so should we, because we were 0% perfect yet God forgave us 100%.

🙏❤ If you are interested in the thought of Ramana Maharshi you can follow me on my profile facebook : Alessandro Longi❤There is "you" and "he". If through the search for the truth of "I", "I" ceases, you will cease "you" and "he" and shine like the One. This is the natural state of one's being.🙏Asking "Who am I?" Inside the mind, and reaching the heart, the self collapses. At the same time the true "I" appears (like "I" "I"), and although it manifests itself as "I" it is not the ego, but the true being.❤Silence is unmistakable eloquence, the state of grace rising from within.❤Primary substance whose essence is the silence that I am.❤Your duty is to be: and not to be this or that.❤Ramana Maharshi❤🙏💙🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
💙Se sei interessato al pensiero di Ramana Maharshi puoi seguirmi sul mio profilo facebook : Alessandro Longi🙏Esistendo l’ “io” esiste anche “tu” ed “egli”. Se attraverso la ricerca della verita’ dell’ “io”, l’ “io” cessa, cesseranno anche “tu” ed “egli” e brilleranno come l’Uno. Questo è lo stato naturale del proprio essere.💙Domandando “Chi sono io?” dentro la mente, e raggiungendo il cuore, l’ io crolla. Contemporaneamente il vero “io” appare (come “io” “io”), e che, benché si manifesti come “io”, è non l’ego, bensì il vero essere. 🙏Il silenzio è ľ impareggiabile eloquenza, lo stato di grazia che sorge dalľ interno💙La sostanza primordiale la cui essenza è il silenzio quello sono io🙏Il tuo dovere è quello di essere : e non di essere questo o quello.💙Ramana Maharshi

Berkat Kekayaan yang Terisi Penuh
Bacaan: Ams 8:17-21
Pujian: KPPK No 50 Hitung Berkatmu .
Kadangkala manusia berpikir bahwa bisa menjadi kaya karena kumpulkan uang dengan bekerja rajin dan berusaha lebih keras dibandingkan yang lain. Tentu itu bukanlah perkataan yang salah dan memang merupakan prinsip dasar dunia ini. Namun, yang tidak boleh kita lupa adalah bahwa dibaliknya, Allah-lah yang memberikan kita kemampuan dan lingkungan yang baik untuk kita bisa menghasilkan uang (Ul 8:18)
Lebih lagi, harta kekayaan yang Allah berikan adalah harta yang tetap (Ams 8:18). Sebanyak apapun hasilkan uang, jika seketika hilang lenyap, maka itu adalah harta yang tidak bernilai (Ams 23:5, Mzm 39:7). Apabila kita mengasihi Allah, maka dijanjikan bahwa kita akan mendapatkan harta yang bernilai, bukan yang hilang lenyap tapi yang terus bertahan untuk selama-lamanya (Ams 8:21).

#fear can hold you hostage... but when you just continue to do... despite the fear, you start to develop a track record in your mind to counter those nasty voices that make you so scared. I love #standupcomedy but it has always been the big scary beast that would stop me... for the past year I have committed to fighting this monster by getting onstage at least three times a week. And it turns out the #monster is a #chihuahua 😂. What’s your fear and what’s one thing you can commit to every week to fight that fear? What’s the worst that will happen if you stand up to fear? Remember ... on the other side of fear is the #blessing 👊🏾 Next up? My #comedy special! 🙏🏾 #goodmorning#sherrishepherd#faceyourfears#justdoit#dreamsdocometrue#dosomething
