In life it is important to know the most important thing .
Once that is known every other thing falls into place
It’s surprising to see how many people have ‘written God off’ because they don’t think God has been there for them. How can you help people to see the truth? Get inspired today by clicking the link in the bio ✌🏼
He is always doing a new thing! . .
Even when the sun is setting and the day is ending, He is doing a new thing! . .
It’s in the dusk of life that we find it hardest to believe that a new day will come. All we see is advancing darkness, cold air rolling in, and the fact that it seems like we have less vision. .
But there is always purpose, strategy and the promise of the dawn in this stage of our lives! . .
If we believe God is good, rather than lamenting the dusk, we can ask ourselves, “what is the new thing He’s doing in me?”
We can trust He has got us in the palm of His hand and He is working all things together for good, moulding is I to the shape we need to be for this incredible new thing He has planned, just around the corner!
Check my stories for a devotional on this for today! .
How’s your dusk? .

Do you know why you exist?
On my recent walk with God (literally, I go on walks at a nearby hiking trail to spend time with God), I heard God asking me this question. Before I could come up with possible answers, He said, "you exist to be loved by me."
This made me think about my kids. When my husband and I decided to have children, we didn't say, "let's have kids so they can do XYZ for us or become ABC for us." In fact, the only reason we wanted to have a baby was to simply LOVE the child. Again, before I could ask a question, God said, "no matter what the circumstance and environment a person was born into, raised in and current situation may be, each living person on earth exists to be LOVED by me.
My next thought was, "God, why do you exist?" He simply said, "to be worshipped." All HIS creation are meant to worship and praise HIM. If people don't, Luke 19:40 says "...even the rocks will cry out." WOW!
So friends, just as we can't deny our existence to be loved by God, let us also not deny God's existence to be worshipped. Amen? Amen!💙

I S A I A H 26:3:- .
. “You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You--in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].”
One of my favourite verses in the #bible
In this life we will have trouble, but we can take heart knowing that Jesus has overcome those troubles! .
For the last few weeks I’ve been so overwhelmed but I keep everything inside until 💥 which isn’t good I know I’m a work in progress. .
This verse has literally come up several times that’s a gentle reminder when my mind is fixed on Christ then I’m filled with His perfect peace. .
So if you like I have find yourself overwhelmed rest in His #Shalom
peace, that nothing missing, nothing broken peace, the peace that Jesus gives that goes far beyond and above our limited understanding His perfect peace that He gives to us REST right there. 🙏
Wow - What a powerful message!

A week ago I heard Francis Chan speak and he talked about someone who fell into a season of doubt and stayed there for years. Finally he asked God to send him a sign that he exists and he received that sign. I've never been comfortable asking things like that. It's a personal choice for me; I feel like I'm challenging God and I don't want to do that.
But the story brought to mind a conversation with a friend who said, "God doesn't pursue people." Apparently I didn't interpret his statement the way he intended and my first thought was, "Well, I'm screwed." It's not that I want to be pursued by God. That makes me think of God finding Adam and Eve after they ate the fruit from the forbidden tree and hid from him.
I just want to hear from God. I don't know what this looks like. I don't even have anything that I want him to say. I think I just want to know that he's there and that he cares. Even if he doesn't care about me, I want to know that he cares about others.
break: reduce to pieces or fragments ;; this past week has been hecka stressful with assignments, and i kept proclaiming that i’m “broken” because of the huge amounts of stress i had. yesterday morning, i was going through pinterest and i found this. it got me thinking...what is the source of my happiness...a grade or the salvation & love that my Savior gives me? hint:: there’s only 1 correct answer !
“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.”
Philippians 3:7-9 NIV
"I am burning with jealousy for her." 8:2
This her is Zion. It is His people. It is YOU!
"This is what the Lord says: 'I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain." 8:3
He saves us and makes us a blessing. 8:13 He tells us, "do not be afraid, but let your hands be strong." He says many times: Do not be afraid.
He also tells us to speak the truth to each other and render true and sound judgement in court. To also not plot evil or love to swear falsely. 8:16
Maybe your struggling wth the plan and you want to stop hoping, but get this:
"Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you." 9:12
EVEN NOW - whatever you are facing. Even now He has plans to restore and redeem you.
As the song Control goes,
"I've had plans
Shattered and broken
Things I have hoped in
Fall through my hands
You have plans
To redeem and restore me
You're behind and before me
Oh, help me believe.
God You don't need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go."
Oh help me believe.
Pray this openly right now and trust in His plans to restore this time.
❇ PEACE ACRONYM WORD
“This week in studying the Fruit of the Holy Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23. God’s perfect timing lands me to re-visit the acronym Word PEACE - the Holy Spirit inspired me with when I first began this ministry for Christ Feb 2017. If you scroll all the way back you will see one of my photos that I posted from my Wood carved letters that spelled PEACE! I might just post a new photo of that today.
When I first got called to do this ministry or anything for that matter, are you like me starting to get worried about our lack of self-confidence and asking why God chose us to do it rather than something else. I believe God is multi-taking as always - desiring for us to learn to trust in Him, receive His PEACE, His Strength, do it afraid by faith in Him, and be blessed through it as we are invited to receive PEACE. Plus God is magnified through our weaknesses as we know it is He who grants us the power to overcome our worries and fears. He grants us PEACE directly from Himself!
So yesterday I posted a long explanation on making PEACE with God. I won’t repeat that here. But what I want to share more is the acronym Word when you read or hear about PEACE, be reminded that God asked us to Cast ALL our cares upon Him for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7)
So we are reminded from the word PEACE: .

Shalom, Peace be with you,
❇ PEACE ACRONYM WORD
⬅️Swipe left 2 parts video
So we are reminded from the word PEACE:
It’s important we do it each time we worry and everyday when something bothers you. Cast it to Christ immediately. Jesus yoke is light and easy to carry and He wants us to unload all our burdens to Him and He replaces it with only His PEACE & comfort He provides. (Matt 11:28-28)
One of my favourite verse and it is the mission of my life is found in 2 Cor 1:3-4
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” Isn’t that a beautiful verse? When God provides us His PEACE and comfort; it just doesn’t stop there! He invites us to be part of His mission to help others that we can encourage through how God comforted us! It’s like “Boomerang Peace & Comfort” to share with others! I think that’s so awesome God thought that way ahead for us. ⁉️”Do you need God’s Spiritual Fruit of Peace now? Call upon Him.” 🙌🏻”Heavenly Father, thank you for PEACE as Fruit of the Spirit. I desire that Fruit of Peace in my life to be less anxious, as I have generalized anxiety disorder. I place my faith and trust in healing me 100 percent one day, but until then I will daily surrender all my anxieties and worries to You. Thank you that I know I am growing in this area as the things I used to worry about doesn’t bother me anymore. Also when challenging storms rage about in my life recently, I felt grounded and at PEACE because I trust You my Sovereign all powerful God who is also my Heavenly Father.” #christianspeaker
Seasons where worry thoughts capture our attention & stifle our patience & focus on our little ones. ✨A simple prayer to pray : “I believe in the power of the cross & I worship You God.” This is our stance of standing firm, not fearing & seeing the salvation of the Lord. (Exodus 14:13 ) This is my faith believing that He endlessly works behind the scenes on my behalf. And thus I can sing ～ “This is how I fight my battles: It may look like I'm surrounded but I'm surrounded by You.” - Michael W. Smith 🎵 #alelluia

Sometimes I tend to forget that baby steps still move me forward. Right now I’m stepping into a new season of my life, and while it’s frightening, I’m eager to see the beauty that exists in the unknown. I’ve experienced SO much in my life up until this point, and right now I’m purposefully making peace with my myself and my past. Why? Because I’ve learned that replaying painful memories over and over in your head creates an environment for self abuse. Toxic thoughts create a toxic mind, and a toxic mind leads to a toxic body. I still have a long way to go, but as I continue to relinquish control of my fears and make room for Yahweh’s(God) will, peace inevitably manifests. Here’s to the journey✨
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13
Has there been a time in your life when you were tempted beyond what you thought you could endure? How did God show himself faithful to provide a way of escape and help you to endure during that time?
