My heart is crying for his soul, not anymore as a woman who got offended. I am just like him who needs Jesus.
I was like a child being pushed on a swing so hard, I could feel my own flesh moving without definite direction, I was like trembling without any idea on what to do. But my Father caught me before I hit the ground, never too late, just on time.
Today, I'll unfollow some blogs, not because I don't love them, but because I'm not loving the things they're keep on posting. I love you, and will still keep on praying for you.
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)
I’m goin’ to make a video presentation for father’s day in our church tomorrow, and i really need your help about the song I’m gonna put on the video. Can someone suggest or recommend any christian song for father’s day? please?
One of our friends (and fellow ladies!) entered a photography contest and we would all be overwhelmingly grateful and appreciative if you could spare a vote for her entry here, or reblog this post to help spread the word. (:
Also, if you do vote, please like this post. We would like to do a little something special for everyone who was kind enough to support her.
“From him the whole body … grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)
A church needs more than just a pastor or a worship leader. Whether it’s a new church or one that’s been around for years, it takes all kinds of people to grow a church.
Are you good at math, organization, or working with children? How about sign painting? All of these abilities are needed. So what can you contribute to your church?
When Kay and I started Saddleback Church, we had one service with 15 people that grew to a core of 60 people by the end of the first year. These people weren’t preachers or teachers; they were just normal people doing different kinds of normal things. Thirty-one years later those people are still at the heart of our church. And if you ask any of them if the time and abilities they have contributed were worth it, they would tell you “yes”.
Serving the church is probably the most important and significant thing you will do in your life, because the church will outlast everything. Your job and hobbies will not go into eternity. Even nations and governments will not go into eternity. The church, the family of God, is the only thing that’s going to last forever.
The Bible says, “When you meet together, one person has a song, and another has a teaching. Another has a new truth from God. Another speaks in a different language …. The purpose of all these things should be to help the church grow ….” (1 Corinthians 14:26, NCV). Everybody should bring what they are good at to the table, because no one person is good at everything.
You have God-given gifts and abilities that the church needs. Whether it’s your home church that you’ve attended for years or a new church plant that’s just getting started, what will your contribution be?
until the whole world hears Lord, we are calling out! lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound! like voices in the wilderness we're cryin' out, as the day draws near, we'll sing until the whole world hears!
It doesn’t seem like that long ago I stopped being a girlfriend and became someone’s wife. Was reading all those books and articles on being the “perfect” girlfriend pointless? Not at all! I learned a lot and it helped lay the foundation for who I am as a wife because the dating relationship is a good indication of what the marriage will be like. But until marriage comes along, what are you supposed to do in a dating relationship? How can you be a godly girlfriend?
1. Be Christ-Centered.
This may seem very basic but it’s the most foundational trait for being a good girlfriend. Any girl that doesn’t have Christ as her center won’t be able to become a godly girlfriend or have a healthy, God-honoring relationship. She’ll be in danger of having her boyfriend become her center, her all, her everything which is honestly, idolatry. Anything coming first in your heart, before Christ, is your god (Deut.11:16).
The greatest command for God’s followers is to love Him with ALL their hearts and souls (Deut. 10:12; Mk. 12:28-30). You must love God foremost before you can truly love a boyfriend or husband.
"A young woman who is deeply, passionately, intimately in love Jesus Christ glows with a radiance that overpowers even the most noticeable of flaws. I’ve seen many a godly woman light up an entire room with her presence. To study her closely, you would not think of her as beautiful; in fact she might even have major physical blemishes that would normally be distracting. But when a woman’s passion for Jesus Christ is so deep that it is the focal point of her existence, it effervesces from every corner of her being—and she glows with Heavenly beauty. No matter what her physical flaws might be, they are unnoticed when Jesus Christ is center stage in her life."
“He may not come down with a bolt of lightning or paint a message for you in the sky, but as you truly get to know Him and His Word, you will understand His desires for you.”—Leslie Ludy (via oliviaadkins)
