So many people I know are seeking God right now to figure out what their purpose is, and what they're supposed to be doing in 2019. These verses in Colossians speak to that so perfectly. God isn't hiding His will. He wants you to know it because as this verse points out, you can't have a walk worthy of Him if you don't know where to walk! If that's true, how do we figure it out?
The key is to develop a daily relationship with the Lord. Spend time talking with Him, and reading His Word every day. Fall in love with Him. Live every day one at a time, letting God lead you TODAY. And when today ends, you sit at His feet again tomorrow, When you do that, when you learn to take each day as it comes, making Him the center of it, you'll find yourself walking in His will perhaps without even realizing it. The plans and blessings He has for you will chase you down and overtake you, because you have entered into covenant relationship with the Maker of all things. We're expecting great things this year, but I'm believing for them to start today. Tomorrow will take care of itself.
Peace and love to you all!
Day 5 with the group for the #danielfast
I have here a simple kale carrot and tomato salad with a cashew ginger sauce ✨
Prayer Target: to seek understanding about the spiritual realm so that I activate my faith in practical ways.
PRAYER: God, I confess I have not always lived according to your standards. It's so easy to get pulled into the world's ways and make excuses for things. I ask today that You would stir my faith to believe again that I am part of a Kingdom that is NOT of this world - that I am here as an ambassador, a representative of you. I ask that in the waiting for the promises I believe I have heard You give me, that I will still be active in my faith, moving forward - being the warrior you have called me to be. Let me shut the mouths of lions and topple the enemy's strongholds..and yes, seeing and loving people from death into LIFE! Forgive me where I have pulled back, or pulled away because of the 'waiting' and I repent of listening the accuser that You have not heard my cry or answered my prayer. I recommit myself to follow You wherever you lead. I give you back permission to do all things in YOUR time and to be content with that. In the meantime, I receive the faith spark to become the mighty warrior you have created me to be. Keep us on Your path O Lord.
Vi ser alltid etter nye og kreative måter å høre Guds stemme på. Vi tror at Gud kan snakke til oss på veldig mange forskjellige måter, uansett om vi er ute i naturen eller i byen!
We are constantly looking for new and creative ways to hear God’s voice, whether it’s in the nature or in the city we believe that God can speak to us in so many different ways!
Leaving the twenties😊 metabolism changes = dinner plate changes.as boring as it is, it's cheaper than medical bills that'll only leave you saying, "if only I'd eaten healthier 5 out of 7 days ❤️
In a matter of months (Lord willing) I'll be turning 30! I wonder how yal 30+ peeps felt when you turned 30.I can't help but read about people at 30..... like..the calvinist clergyman John Harvard! He died at 30,not long after he landed on American soil. Before Havard died, he established Havard college, the now prestigious Harvard uni. Harvard College was initially established on the propositions in the 66books of the Holy Bible. #biblicalworldview#scripturalism
Apparently Havard had tonnes of books, maybe he spent most of His time reading (if not serving). amazing what he'd accomplished by age 30! Makes me consider how well he probably spent his twenties! What shaped him? Redeem the time❤️
Ya can read more,getyo accurate sources heyy... John Harvard.

That complaint always makes me laugh a little😂 Of course I can’t force anyone to believe something, but I have every right to defend and argue in support of my own moral beliefs. If I believe abortion kills an innocent child, how could I possibly not speak up to defend the lives of innocents?🤷🏼♀️ Praying for everyone at the March for Life! Said my Rosary for you guys tonight😊🙏🏻💕 Stay safe and God bless!
What a blessing this women is in my life! Today is her birthday and I am so grateful and blessed that God put her in my life! We have shared sometimes difficult moments and wonderful moments together!! God always helping us through everything that life throws at us!!
3. Let not your students apply themselves to search out deep, dark, and abstruse matters, far above their reach, or spend their labor in any peculiar subjects, for which they have not the advantages of necessary previous learning, or books, or observations. Let them not be too hasty to know things above their present powers, nor plunge their inquiries at once into the depths of knowledge, nor begin to study any science in the middle of it; this will startle rather than enlighten the understanding; such practices may happen to discourage and tire the mind by an attempt above its power; it may balk the understanding, and create a dislike to future diligence, and perhaps by despair may forbid the pursuit of that subject forever afterwards: as a limb overstrained by lifting a weight above its power may never recover its former agility and vigor; or if it does, the man may be frighted from ever exerting its strength again.
4. Nor yet let any student, on the other hand, fright himself at every turn with insurmountable difficulties, nor imagine that the truth is always wrapt up in impenetrable mystery (...) Those things which, though appearing in a remote & confusing view seem very obscure and perplex, may yet be approached by gentle and regular steps, and may then unfold and explain themselves at large to the eye. The hardest problems in geometry, and the most intricate schemes or diagrams, may be explicated and understood step by step; every great mathematician bears a constant witness to the observation.
5. In learning any new thing, there should be as little as possible first introduced to the mind at once, and that being understood, and fully mastered, proceed then to the next adjoining part yet unknown. This is a slow but safe and sure way to arrive at knowledge. If the mind apply itself at first to easier subjects and things near akin to what is already known, then advance to the more remote and knotty parts of knowledge by slow degrees. It will be able in this manner to cope with great difficulties, and prevail over them with amazing and happy success.
