"Not that I have already obtained all this…but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me" (Philippians 3:12). . The "all this" Paul is referring to is perfection in Jesus Christ. Despite describing all his good works, he notes he still isn't there yet. This is interesting. The man who presumably wrote most of the New Testament is acknowledging that HE's not perfect but still in "the press." . Why, then, do we allow ourselves to feel bad because we’re not perfect? You and I shouldn't. We're all in "the press." . Take your cue from Paul today: Forget what's behind and keep pushing towards what's ahead, continue to press forward… … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #focus #instajoy #instalove #wellness #tsrmorninginspiration #fuel #fit #yoga #keto #ketolife #ketoaf

The Psalmist opens up this division talking generally about how beneficial the Word of God is, including how it’s helped him live more rightly. But then there’s shift. The Psalmist shifts from talking about the Word of God and starts talking to God: “Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be __________________” (Ps. 19:13‬). . The Psalmist recognized that in order for him to be all that he was destined to be, he couldn’t solely rely on the written Word of God but needed the manifested or engaged Word of God. He needed God to be better. . I think that’s good news for you and me who sometime finds ourselves disappointed at our seeming inability to be better. I mean, after all the churchy accolades we have, surely we should be further along in this walk. But, outside of God’s continued aid, we’ll never be all that we and He desires us to be. . So go easy on yourself and lean on God’s help to fill in your “then I will be __________________.” … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #focus #instajoy #instalove #wellness #tsrmorninginspiration #fuel #fit #yoga #keto #ketolife #ketoaf

“Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them”‭‭ (Psalm‬ ‭19:2-3‬).‬ . The Psalmist discusses how the heavens and the skies declare God’s glory. They reveal something that words are unable to communicate. In many of our faith traditions, this seems antithetical to our teaching. I mean, faith comes by hearing—right? Well…right. But there are different ways to hear versus only audibly. . I think the Psalmist’s point is that there are different ways to connect to and receive revelation from God. Don’t let people demonize you for incorporating other wellness activities into your spiritual time. I’ve known of people who were able to truly be present with God in moments of meditation, yoga, or even get emotional during a spa day because it was one of the few opportunities they had to be still and reflect on the awesomeness of God. . There are a multiplicity of ways to connect with the Divine. Ask Him to show you how to become more intimate with Him through a variety of ways. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #focus #instajoy #instalove #wellness #tsrmorninginspiration #fuel #fit #yoga #keto #ketolife #ketoaf

“You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know” (‭‭Job‬ ‭42:3‬). . I recently had a debate with someone about whether we—in the Christian faith—had a monopoly on truth. (Get ready for the shock that may even cause some of you to unfollow. 😔) I contended that we did not. . When I think of truth, I think of God—His sovereignty, His vastness, His existence which surpasses my feeble understanding. The reality is that none of us have a monopoly on truth. We know what we know. But that’s it. God is so much more and I think it’s important that we engage God accordingly—with HUMILITY and reverence. And with each other, we should (using a current colloquialism) keep that same energy. . We don’t have all the answers. We’re just confident in our personal experiences with God and, even within those, we’re still trying to unpack what God is doing. And that’s okay. But in the meantime, let’s all try to avoid “speaking on things we don’t understand, things too wonderful for us to know” and I believe God will be pleased. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM

““They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’” (Matthew‬ ‭25:44‬). . I know I probably shouldn’t use this platform to say this but I’m going to do it anyway. I’m deeply concerned about this country (the U.S.). It seems that we are growing farther and farther away from our responsibility to others. We live in a day where—despite how much more connected we’ve become—we have grown increasingly more isolated and selfish. . It’s wrong. And not simply because I’m saying it but because Jesus says it. When speaking about whom will be welcomed into heaven and who will be sent to eternal damnation, he makes one distinction: Who was able to see the divine in humanity? Who was able to see Jesus in the person who was homeless and hungry? Who was able to see Jesus in the refugee and asylum seeker? Who was able to see Jesus in the prisoner and ex-convict? . Are we those people? If we’re not—and continue to be so—I fear we too will find ourselves in a space that is absent of God’s presence. If we want to avoid that, we must ensure that we can see the Jesus in everyone. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM
“The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:16‬). . I feel like we all know the parable of the 8 talents/bag of gold. A master leaves 8 bags of golds between his three servants while he goes on a trip. The servant with five bags and the other with two produced more but the servant with only one bag didn’t do anything with his. I love the NIV’s phrasing of what the servant with five bags did though—he put his money to work. . Are you simply working for your money or are you putting your money to work? . The servant who didn’t put his money to work eventually lost what he had…because at some point, it’s too late. But today isn’t that day. We still have time to change our financial habits. Don’t just sit on or throw away (v. 18, dig a hole with) your money. Save. Invest. Diversify. Make your money work for you. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM

“…So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you”‭‭ (Matthew‬ ‭25:25‬). . Verbally assaulted. Fired. Stripped of his gifts. Arrested. Ostracized. Excommunicated. All of this happened to the servant who failed to use what his master had gifted him productively. But note the reason he says he wasn’t productive: “I was afraid.” . For many of us, fear is the biggest challenge we have to being who God has called us to be. We are afraid. What if I try and it doesn’t work out? What is I shoot my shot and get rejected? What if I sow my hard work and heart into this project and don’t reap what I thought I would? We’re afraid…of failing, of being embarrassed, of being discredited, of [fill in the blank]. . Yet, the master doesn’t accept that excuse from the servant and God doesn’t accept that excuse from us. Fear is a normal, humanly emotion. But we’re expected to control it versus letting it control us. . I know this opportunity can be unnerving. But God told me to tell you to stretch beyond your anxiety. And go do what you were gifted by the Master to do! … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM

“But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭24:48-49‬). . Ever since I can remember, the old saints in the church would always talk about Jesus’ return and wanting to be ready. They would encourage the congregation—especially the young people—to get our houses in order for we’ll never know the day nor the hour. But, during that time, it seemed like the expectation of readiness was also one of holiness and perfection. And this is why I love this illustration that Jesus uses. . He talks about a master who leaves two servants—one faithful and one wicked—in charge of his home. But it’s interesting how He describes the wicked one. That’s the one who abused his fellow servants, while pleasing himself and his friends with parties. He didn’t care for the others under the Master’s care but solely looked out for himself and his folks. . Maybe that’s what we should be mindful of as we prepare for Jesus’ return. How are we treating God’s children? Are we abusive towards them (or worse, apathetic) or do we treat them as gifts from God? . Be a better steward of your relationships with all of God’s children. It’s what He’s charged us to do and you don’t want to be caught mistreating them when He returns. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). . This past Friday, I was heading to Atlanta to celebrate a frat brother’s wedding. Sitting on the plane, waiting to take off…and the pilot makes an announcement: “There are some weather issues in [I can’t remember which city] and so we’re going to have a really bumpy flight. But we’ll make it.” . It was the 2019 version of Jesus’ statement and yet it strangely didn’t comfort me. Yes, I’ve been on bumpy rides before but I remember how scared some of them made me. And that’s the part I wasn’t excited to experience again. . Then I remembered: but I’ve always made it to where I was going. Yes, Jesus has carried me on plenty of bumpy rides—but He’s always seen me through them. Strangely, reflecting on this reality gave me some peace. The ride was still bumpy but it was reassuring to know that Jesus will always get us to where we need to go. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #oscars #oscars2019 #blackhistorymonth #BHM

This evening around 6:30…well, really around 7 (cause I know they’re not going to start on time), I’m going to head to choir rehearsal. From where I work in DC, I’m going to need to cross a bridge to get to my church in VA. And it’s fine. It’s normal. It won’t be an issue—unless I forget that the purpose of the bridge is to get me to the other side. That’s where many of us get into trouble. We stop in a space that was only supposed to be a bridge. . For many of you, that’s the reminder you needed. This season wasn't meant to be your destination but simply a space of transition. . Don’t get stuck here. . Don’t get too comfortable in this space. .

Your blessings often come in the form of opportunities. What opportunities do you have on the horizon? . Maybe the blessing of being eventually able to author that book is coming in the form of an invitation to co-author this chapter. Maybe the blessing of that spouse you’ve been praying for is coming through that coffee date. Maybe that dream of psychological safety will be obtained through the free counseling sessions available through your job’s Employee Assistance Program (ask your HR). . God has made/is making blessings available for you through the opportunities He’s sent your way. The question is—what is stopping you from taking advantage of them? … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM
Please read: When David set out to rescue the women + children who'd been stolen by the Amalekites, he ran into an ill Egyptian servant they left behind. David asked the servant if he could lead David + his men down to the raiding party. 1 Samuel 30:16 begins, "He [the servant] led David down." And the Amalekites were destroyed. . The Amalekites discarded the servant because he was no longer of any use to them. Today, we often do the same thing—discard folks when we're done with them. The story teaches us that there's danger in believing (1) that it's always about what others can do for us and (2) that EVERYONE is disposable. . Be mature today. Choose kindness over selfishness. Choose charity + compassion over greed. Choose mercy over justice. Choose love over hate. Such choices will render a reward down the road…in this life and the life to come. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #Repost @seedsforthespirit • • • • •

By contrast, the servant who was considered wicked in the Master's sight was the one who used religious dogma as an excuse to be lazy with his talents. . God has gifted each of us with talents.

What’s your process? I know you want to build your own business. I know you want to lead in your industry. I know you want a position in a C-Suite. I know you want to create that organization to save our community. I know you want to pastor that church. I know you want to achieve that dream. . But what’s your process…? …both to achieve your dream and sustain your dream. Our passions are great; they’re a part of what makes us ourselves.

“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius?…’” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭20:13‬). . Jesus tells a parable about a landowner who hired workers for his vineyard at the start and throughout the day—only to pay all of them the same amount at the end of the day (a denarius). When those who were hired earlier received the same amount, Scripture records that they grumbled. And you and I can probably understand why…on the surface at least. . The challenge though is they agreed to the one denarius originally and it wasn’t an issue until they began to compare themselves to others. And that’s so often our issue.

I have a lot of issues with the book of Hosea and they all rest in the first three chapters. In order to send a message to the Israelites about their idol worship, God makes Hosea marry a prostitute. God’s goal is to make Hosea understand the hurt He feels when the Israelites cheat on Him. I have a problem with that. . I mean, God, can't you find another way to send a message to the Isrealites? What about that firey bush thing ya do? How about we part some more seas, a lake, a river, and rain puddle and send the message that way? Would you happen to have any more of those fire/cloud pillar-things? It just seems that you can get their attention another way versus by messing with MY love life. I have issues with the story. . Yet, it is a reminder of how being used by God isn't always easy or enjoyable. The calling to make an impact in your community isn't going to always feel good. But, we must remember, God's purpose is so much bigger than our pain. So, keep pushing. Keep working. Keep pressing forward. The pain is worth it in the end. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM

“But they replied, “Should he have treated our sister like a prostitute?”” ‭‭(Genesis‬ ‭34:31‬). . If we’re honest, the Bible is full of disgusting examples regarding the treatment of women (remember Lot & his wife). Yet, there’s something to be said about how Dinah’s brothers responded when their sister was abused. They wouldn’t stand for it and held those responsible for the travesty accountable. . Could you imagine such a world today? Imagine if we protected the rights of women more than we looked for opportunities to make them do what we wanted. Imagine if we were all so disgusted by those who took advantage of women that we wouldn’t support their music, their movies, or their bid for the highest office in the land anymore. Imagine if we aimed to be their peace and hold them down as they have us throughout generations and cultures. Imagine if we took advantage of opportunities to check each other—like Simeon & Levi checked their father—when appropriate. . We don’t have to continue imagining. No, we can begin looking for opportunities to better support women today. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM #electwomen
Missing my handsome! It's really starting to kick in , the reality that we don't know when he's coming home. He was blessed with a big job opportunity in Montana and he has to stay until the job is finished we are going on three weeks already and it's just hit me that he will not be home anytime soon. Taking care of the kids and the house especially without him has been a challenge, but I know God is doing big things in our lives. At first I started to Lose My Faith because the person he was working for decided that they were going drop the workers off and just collect the check without paying them their perdiem money, rental car and were paying the workers 1/2 of what they would be owed. My husband was literally stuck in Montana with nothing, along with five other people who had nothing but took off and had faith that this is going to be good job. But before things could turn bad God intervened and the main contractor decided to talk to the men and found out that they were being cheated and he signed a contract with them and got rid of the guy who turned money hungry. God has been so good to us and I am just so thankful everything that he continues to do for us. This year we are working hard to become debt free and let me tell you so far it has been a very Rocky Road. But I know it's going to be worth it! #longdistance #marriage #wearenotperfect #goals #debtfree #walkinginfavor #thankyoujesus #missmyhusband #itsthebusiness #momlife #lifestyle #life #makelemonade #wifelife #holdingitdown #takingcareofthefamily #dowhatittakes #chaseyourdreams #dontlookback #tothefuture #wegotthis #longdistancemarriage #mommywifelife #rediscoveringme

“About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. … He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard’” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭20:6-7‬). . Jesus tells a parable about a landowner who hired workers for his vineyard at the start and throughout the day—only to pay all of them the same amount at the end of the day (a denarius). . While it symbolizes the unfairness of this world to some, it has a more positive implication to me. A denarius was traditionally the daily wage for a day laborer. I could imagine that those who started later in the day didn’t expect to get it. But the landowner gave it to them—not because they started as early as others but simply because they started. . That’s good news for we who haven’t lived according to pristine timelines—for we who didn’t get the spouse, two and a half kids, house, and amazing career by 25. (I know I wasn’t the only person who thought that was going to be my life in high school. 😂) Jesus’ parable should remind us that as long as you are still alive, it’s not too late to course correct and make some things happen. . Go make it happen! … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #PelosiClap #SOTU #blackhistorymonth #BHM
Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself. #highlyfavoured #walkinginfavor
“Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. ‘Listen,’ he said, ‘I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me’” (Gen ‭37:9‬). . Okay. I get it. There’s something providential about Joseph constantly telling his brothers his dreams. Yet, there’s something…what’s the word I’m looking for? Dumb. Yeah, that’s it. There’s just something very dumb about it. Before you Joseph fans jump on me, hear me out. v. 4—They hated him because he was loved. v. 8—They hated him because of his dream. So why does he still tell them his second dream in v. 9? . Maybe it was partially because Joseph hadn’t learned how to move in silence. We know about it. We live in a day where we’re more concerned with posting our lives than living our lives. We have to share everything that happens…with a believe that our sharing will be celebrated when in actuality it simply makes us more hated. . In 2019, the theme of the year is: move in silence. Become more focus on achieving your dreams than broadcasting your dream. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #beyonce #keto #blackhistorymonth
Recent events have made me aware of the unwanted tenant name fear that has been occupying space in my head. From extreme anxiety encounters, second guessing gut feelings, hesitating when I should be taking my leap of FAITH and doubting my known abilities.....THIS SHIT STOPS NOW. Understanding and believing that it will work in my favor has been my motto for years and I get to where I am in my life just to let fear stop me. No more will I F.E.A.R. FORGET EVERYTHING AND RUN, but rather understand that F.E.A.R. is merely FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL and get back to WALKING IN MY FAITH!!! #nomorefear #walkinfaithnotbysight #walkinginfavor
Living a BLESSED life! Today was amazing! Thank you Lord ☀️💓 #Blessed #WalkingInFavor #IamAmberDawn
“He replied to him, ‘Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?’” (Matthew‬ ‭12:48‬). . We hear so much about this passive Jesus that we forget—He had some “around the way” tendencies to Him. One day, while ministering, His biological family members came to try and talk to Him. They weren’t there to partake in the worship but they were there because they wanted His attention. When someone told Him, Jesus basically said “Who dis?” . I don’t *think* Jesus was trying to be rude (like many of the church folks we know) but I think the Master Teacher was trying to make a point: loved ones can be a distraction too. It’s important because many of us were raised to always put family first—and there’s something to be said about that way of thinking. But we must be careful not to place our loved ones above our purpose. And if the love is reciprocated, they shouldn’t want you to sacrifice that much on their behalf. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #GoRedForWomen #Ketolife #FridayMotivation #FBF
“So Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him” (Genesis 28:1a). . Monday evening my church kicked off another season of our small groups, called Village, and I excitedly opened one of those groups with my LB, @jclark787 , as co-facilitators. As an icebreaker, we laid out a lot of pictures and asked participants to identify one which pictorially described their relationship with God. . This was my picture. I explained to the group that this was my year to push through and get exactly what I want. I brought up the old story of Jacob. You know it. Jacob is the trickster who stole his brother’s birthright and blessing. And we accordingly give him a hard time for it. Yet, I wonder if we do so unfairly. I mean, yeah, he tricked his brother but one thing I love about Jacob is that he was adamant about getting what he wanted. Unlike Esau, he was unwilling to sit back and simply hope everything worked out. No, he was determined to make it happen! . Maybe that’s the call of God for you and me in 2019. No longer can we sit back, pray, provide minimal effort, and hope for the best. No. This is our season to do it. This is our year to actually achieve our new year’s (and yesteryear’s) goals and resolutions. This is our year to break the curses in our families. This is our year to reach new heights. And the best news is that you won’t have to trick and cheat folks like Jacob. But if you can simply achieve his level of determination, you and I can have what we want. This is our year to make it happen! … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #SouljaBoy #GucciHeadband
“But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded” (Genesis‬ ‭8:1‬). . Have you ever embarked into something but, after getting into it, wondered if you made the right decision? I can't help but suspect that's how Noah felt. God told him to build this ark before some great flood. But could you imagine how he must’ve felt while out there on the water? I’m not sure about you but I would’ve been scared and, in my sanctified imagination, I think Noah might have been too. And yet, he was out there…doing what he felt was right. . That’s why this one line does so much for me: but God remembered Noah. Springs of the great deep burst forth and the floodgates of heaven were opened. But God remembered Noah. The winds were likely shaking the boat to and fro. But God remembered Noah. The animals were likely reacting and making a lot of commotion across the ark. But God remembered Noah. . That ought of give you some joy too. In the midst of life being crazy and chaotic…in the midst of this journey being more wild than originally anticipated…in the midst of losing some friends and family along the way, it’s just good to know that God still remembered/remembers [insert your name here]. . Grateful for God simply remembering me! … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #SouljaBoy #GucciHeadband
Success is the absolute best revenge! 💋 #WalkingInFavor
How I’m coming into 2019! Folk try to copy my flow but I’m so far ahead of local thinkers. My mind is executing on some global ish right now. Don’t believe me? Stand by. 🌍 #myflowdifferent #executingplans @fleurtywick #internationalbrand #nevascared #walkinginfavor
Day 2 of training, pumped and excited. You may not understand, and maybe it's not for you but I'm driven by purpose and favor is always present. #FPTR #noroomfordoubt #walkinginfavor #lockedin #lookingforlikemindedpeople
“No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof” (Genesis 19:7-8). . Sickened. That's the best word I could find to describe how I felt as I reread the story of how Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. Scripture records that when two angels decided to stay over Lot's house in Sodom, a group of men gathered outside demanding to rape the angels. Lot went out to dissuade them by offering his virgin daughters instead. . And Scripture doesn't even deal with it. Why? Because, during this time, women were primarily seen as property and this view of women is an undercurrent throughout Scripture and—if we're being honest—throughout the practice of our faith. It's important to recognize for, if we don't, we risk being like Lot—righteous in one area but reprehensible in how we treat women. . There's a lot of good in our faith tradition but if it doesn't honor women, we've missed the mark. We must actively take a stand against religious customs that seek to forsake and/or control women. We must call out behaviors of friends, family, and even pastors that demean and dishonor women for the sake of tradition. We must honor and respect the personhood of women. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever #SouljaBoy #GucciHeadband #SurvingRKelly
