Whatever you are doing at the moment, pause.
feel your heart beat within your chest.
do you feel it?
do you feel your heart beating, giving life to your entire body?
do you feel the air in your lungs expanding your chest?
that’s called purpose.
you are still here, your heart is still beating.
you are still breathing.
every breath is filled with purpose, his purpose.
your life matters right now, today.
wherever your feet are, whether in your work place, in your home, around your family, in the grocery store, carry purpose.
a call to action:
walk boldly and proudly as his child.
you carry purpose into every atmosphere you step into because his holy spirit dwells within you.

rest in the truth that he has a plan for you, and that you have a purpose.

“"for thus says the lord: when seventy years are completed for babylon, i will visit you, and i will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. for i know the plans i have for you, declares the lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and i will hear you. you will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. i will be found by you, declares the lord, and i will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where i have driven you, declares the lord, and i will bring you back to the place from which i sent you into exile.”

1 corinthians 15:58 💞
therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the lord, knowing that in the lord your labor is not in vain.
sweet friend, you are not confined by the limitations that people have placed upon your life.
you are not defined by the expectations others have of you.
pleasing people is a fruitless effort.
abide in christ. seek him first, always.
“for am i now trying to persuade people, or god? or am i striving to please people? if i were still trying to please people, i would not be a servant of christ.” galatians 1:10, csb

Każdy dzień może być cudem. wszystko zależy od ciebie🙌
nie potrafię ciagle się uśmiechać, ale to nie znaczy, że nie jestem szczęśliwa 😊
wzruszam się, złoszczę, płacze, buntuje- nie jestem idealna, jednak staram się pokochać i docenić każde odczucia, które do mnie przychodzą oraz naprawić to co mi nie odpowiada⚡️
we wszystkim dostrzegam boga, bo chcę go dostrzegać, to on wszystkim „zwykloscią”nadaje cudu🥰
ty też jesteś cudem, wiec poczuj się jak prawdziwy cud. zasługujesz na to👌
wyobraź sobie, że dla niego jesteś jedyna i niepowtarzalna. on cię kocha najsilniejszą miłością jaka istnieje we wszechświecie 🌍❤️
To the girl who feels like she isn’t enough. the girl who has been beaten down with words, bruised with scars from her past. the girl who has been overlooked. the girl who continues to compare her life to the next, not knowing that their highlights aren’t real life. the girl who doesn’t really feel like she is adequate, nor has the energy to love someone again. this letter is for you.
you are enough. i wish i could just come through this computer screen, hug each & everyone of you. i would comfort you as we cried together sharing the pain & hidden struggles we’ve been through or still going through. for what you are going through, you don’t have to prove to no one because this is your journey. you are enough & that in itself is enough to keep going. phil 1:6
demeaning words you may have been told, or the self defeating thoughts you have on repeat in your mind, isn’t truth. the truth is, you are made worthy through the blood of christ. you are loved. you are desired. you are special.you have purpose. you deserve nothing but the best. you are created for something so much more than you can even comprehend. psalm 138:8
your past is the past. it does not define you. it creates this inner strength that comes from walking through fire. it refines you into the woman you were created to be. it isn’t to break nor destroy you, but grow you. god has made known that you are not who you used to be. for when you gave your life over to god, surrendering your life, you were made new. 2 corinthians 5:17
so as you fill your thoughts with truth, i pray that you see yourself the way god sees you. that you truly believe in yourself & not doubt your gifts nor your purpose. for god is doing a new thing through you. he is covering you with an anointing. placing favor over your life because to him, you are more than enough. @livedeeplyrooted#deeplyrootedchallenge
Bad news is:
man by nature is spiritually dead, disobedient, prodigals, vile, impure, unholy, treacherous, self-absorbed, self-exalting, out and out rebels and always destined for destruction.
good news is:
god is gracious and merciful. we were dead but god made us alive in christ. we were not strugglers in need of a helping hand nor sinking swimmers in need of a raft; we were stone-cold dead - spiritually lifeless, without a religious pulse, without anything to please god. but he loves the loveless, gives life to the lifeless and is merciful to those deserving no mercy.
Don't make anything sink you. focus on the positive and fly high.🦋
people who have goals, projects in mind and a clear vision in life have no time for drama. they spend their time focusing on innovating, creating, and living a healthy, positive life. 😊
don't get distracted along the way by topics that don't make you grow or push you to create a better version of yourself. 💪
visualize everything you want to achieve with faith and you will see that the opportunities will come to you.🙏💓
no hagas que nada te hunda. enfócate en lo positivo y vuela alto.🦋
gente que tiene metas, proyectos en mente y una visión clara en la vida no tiene tiempo para drama. invierten su tiempo enfocándose en innovar, crear y en vivir una vida saludable y positiva. 😊
no te distraigas en el camino con temas que no te hacen crecer o te impulsan a crear una mejor versión de tu ser.💪
visualiza todo lo que quieres lograr con fe y verás que las oportunidades llegarán a ti. 🙏💓
tudo pelo reino
nos evangelhos sinóticos (mateus, marcos e lucas) as expressões “reinos de deus” e “reino dos céus” aparecem 80 vezes, sendo elas, 31 reino de deus e 49 reino dos céus. e em diversas parábolas essas expressões são citadas pelo próprio jesus.
vemos então a importância com a qual jesus trata o reino, sendo ela algo vital. bom, não podemos negar que é algo suma importância para deus, mas e para nós que somos seus seguidores, isso tem o mesmo peso e valor?
jesus em mateus 13, 44-46 nos mostra o real valor do reino, ele nos diz: “o reino dos céus é como um tesouro escondido num campo. certo homem, tendo-o encontrado, escondeu-o de novo e, então, cheio de alegria, foi, vendeu tudo o que tinha e comprou aquele campo.
já imaginou o quão valioso era esse tesouro? o homem citado não pensou duas vezes foi e vendeu tudo em troca daquele tesouro, pois nada do que ele tinha se comparava com na grandeza e com o valor inestimável do tesouro.
ou seja, tudo o que temos ou viremos a ter não é nada perto do ganho inestimável do reino. a atitude daquele homem foi dar tudo o que ele tinha, que não era nada, pelo tudo que jesus prometera a todos nós.
ao contrário do jovem rico em mateus 19, que mesmo seguindo a lei corretamente ainda lhe faltava algo: trocar tudo o que tinha pela vida eterna. então, a própria palavra diz que ele se entristeceu porque era muito rico. e você qual deles você quer ser? aquele que vive pelo reino dos céus ou aquele que está preso nas coisas dessa terra?

"knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad." 😉
who else forgets that tomatoes are actually fruit? i mean they belong in salad! can’t imagine having a tomato the same way i’d have an apple lol.
anyway each to their own, no judgement here on the @lovelifeandfaith1 page. 😜
I have a confession to make. i have a hard time with negativity, and as a coach it comes up not just with my clients, but with family and friends and makes me kinda crazy. i can feel my resistance come up and it triggers something visceral within me. it feels toxic and draining and it’s hard to see the benefit of it. but then, i catch myself in my own negative loops and i say ahhh, there it is..that’s why you are triggered when you see it in others. we know that what behaviors we dislike in others are most always behaviors, or shadows, we dislike about ourselves. negative thoughts within me are toxic to my own life energy. i know the futility of those thought streams. it takes effort and awareness to notice and shift those patterns.
it is hard at times to sit with others who are caught in those streams, when as the observer i can see the doorway out of them. my coach training taught me to notice negative thought patterns, in myself and others... so we can transform the energy of those thoughts to something more productive. being coachable makes it possible to get to the other side of negativity, but unfortunately not all people are coachable, and that is where my greatest challenge comes in. i just want to help everyone, but the truth is you can’t help those who aren’t open to change thought patterns that no longer serve them.
tapping into the sacred current caroline myss talks about here is the doorway to a new way of seeing, a way to restore hope and faith in ourselves, in the world, in life, and in others.
what negativity do you need to replace with the sacred current that runs through all of us?
how would it feel to spend most of your time in that stream of energy?
the sacred current, the universal life energy, is there for you at any moment, you just need to invite it in and allow it to flow through you.
Lately i have been enjoying sunflowers. why? well...it's because my middle name in hmong means sunflower. honestly i forget that i have a middle name. i know, how weird is that? but, i'm learning more about myself and embracing every part of it. best of all, sunflowers are yellow which is my favorite color!

and remind for verily a reminder benefits the believer.
al-qur'an:adh-dhariyat or the winds that scatter:51:55
the prophet ﷺ said: convey (knowledge) from me even if it is just one ayah.
The standard i need to meet has already been fulfilled.
out of all the lessons god has taught me this has been the hardest one for me to embrace.
no matter if you areaway of it or not, we are always trying to hit a standard. we self check ourselves in the form of questions. for me, these questions usually overflow my mind at night. was i loving enough, productive enough? was i a good wife, was i good to my kids, was i healthy enough? is my house clean enough, did i please god enough, did i exercise enough, did i serve enough? di i forget anything? did i let anyone down?
tonight as i was attempting to temper these questions and my responses to them, i heard the holy spirit whisper, “your standard was already met, jesus fulfilled it.”
it’s hard to accept this incomprehensible gift because without striving for something how does life matter?
we have a job to do, usually that job has a lot of moving parts, but it’s not ours to carry out on our own. it’s ours to surrender to god and abide with him through it all until the work is finished.

👉🏼la iglesia es divina y humana.
es santa no porque sus miembros lo seamos, sino porque dios es santo y actúa en ella y por ella, pero también es pecadora, formada por personas humanas que, heridas por el pecado, se equivocan y cometen errores.
🙏🏼pido a dios que, aún así, con la debilidad e imperfección de sus fieles podamos, con su gracia, ser instrumentos para que él continúe su obra y poder transmitirte aunque sea, tan solo un destello de su amor.

➡️ deviens maître. tu as le pouvoir de créer ta vie et de la diriger. tout est une question de pensées positives et de décisions. ta façon d’analyser les choses, ce que tu fais, qui tu fréquentes, la personne que tu choisis pour la vie. tout à des conséquences. soit cela te détruit, soit cela te fortifie. il n’y a pas d’échec tout est enseignement à partir du moment où tu le transforme et décide d’en tirer un enseignement. les moines shaolin s’entraînent à recevoir des coups non pas pour comprendre la douleur mais pour l’accepter comme une partie d’eux mêmes et l’oublier. si tu acceptes quelque chose alors tu le maîtrises.
🇬🇧it's all about mindset. from the moment you wake up in the morning to the moment you rest your mind at night. your emotions, your thoughts, your perception, your decisions, your reactions, everything, absolutely everything is yours.
if you have ever been a victim, know that you can become a master.
🇪🇸 todo es cuestión de la mente. desde el momento en que se despierta por la mañana hasta el momento en que descansa su mente por la noche. tus emociones, tus pensamientos, tu percepción, tus decisiones, tus reacciones, todo, absolutamente todo es tuyo.
si alguna vez ha sido una víctima, sepa que puede convertirse en un maestro.

What do you do when people come at you with bad behavior?
they may be dealing with issues in their life. it’s not about you. it’s about them. hurt people hurt people. you may be able to help or calm them when you respond with grace. responding with grace also protects your peace. you don’t need to internalize or carry unnecessary burdens or emotions.
• let’s show grace today, even as our heavenly father shows us grace all the time even though we don’t deserve it.
I always thought being a missionary meant going to another country and spending your life teaching and preaching.
however, when i got there and was given the opportunity to go into communities and "minister," i realized it looked very different.
•it looked more like listening.
•it looked more like chatting while making tortillas.
•it looked more like driving someone to the doctor.
•it looked more like an encouraging phone call, just to check in.
•it looked more like relationships.
wherever you are, you are a missionary. we are surrounded by people and every single one has a need. you don't have to go far. you don't have to meet the qualifications. you do what you can, and god will do the rest.
I and ash have a chat about the way people tend to view science through a scientism lens these days. we touch upon the immateriality of the mind, morality, the catholic church's relationship with science, galileo, jk rowling, nihilism, and generally what we think is a more reasonable (and scientific) approach to science.
