Let us recognize God's love for mankind within this verse. What an unfathomable blessing to be created in the image and likeness of our great God! Let that soak in and then remember it when dealing with others throughout your day.
"Be Fruitful and Multiply; Generational Covenant" is now up on our blog at www.sunflowerandsunshine.com
*link in profile “And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it…” From Genesis 1:28, we see that God has mandated Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. From the first two people God ever created, came a world full of people. Did God just want Adam and Eve to have more kids? As my sister and I dive deeper into the Word and the Lord revealed more to us, we realized that we have multiplied in Covenant ourselves! Sissy and I, two best friends, two ordinary girls said yes to a mandate from God and the fruit we have produced has multiplied our own family. Find out more on our new blog!
2017 CHG Conference: Day 5 "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:42 - 47
God created us with the ability to be fruitful and multiply... God created us in His image and He creates, He spoke and it was. Don't be afraid to imagine, don't be afraid to think BIG, and CREATE. #makesomething#befruitfulandmultiply#becreative
Yg gini gini yg sering bikin gw geleng geleng kpala n speechless. konfirmasi saat gw lg ada di sebuah situasi. Sempet ada pergumulan dlm hati yg sepanjang perjalanan ke tempat ini (hihi makanya td telat jg dtgnya)rasanya kaya yg mau dipikirin td koq kayanya ada rasa kynya bilang ga usah kuatir. Eeh pas nyampe ternyata si pastor daddy lg doain si tomce dan sudah mendekati giliran akir (gw). Dan waktu ps Marius berdoa buat gw, gw yakin dan gw mengamini apa yg mgkn td gw pergumulkan, itu juga menjadi banyak pergumulan dr banyak temen temen gw. Tp seperti doa ps Marius td.... gw jg mgerasain seneng bgt, krn masa masa terendah dlm hidup kita, justru di situ kita belajar. Lakuin bagian kita dengan baik, dan let God do the rest. Dan itu kaya mengkonfirmasi satu satunya omongan bokap gw dr kita semua pada kecil kecil: kalo menurut kamu baik, kamu lakuin aja. Tp kalau km tau itu ga baik, kamu ga perlu lakuin :) So kita ga perlu kuatir dengan hasil akhir. Meskipun dunia mengajarkan kita: yang penting hasil akhir. Kenapa? Karna justru dalam prosesNya itulah kita belajar mengenal dan membangun hubungan kita dengan Sang Pencipta yg menciptakan kita. Dan dengan mengenal Dia, kita belajar jg mulai mengerti apa rancangan dan tujuan hidup kita, dan hasil akhir?? Itu CUMA compliment yg Tuhan kasih utk kita nikmati (even itu baik atau buruk-menurut kita loh, karna gw percaya di setiap kitqb suci kita pasti tertulis kalau rancangan Tuhan utk hidup kita pasti rancangan yg baik dan bukan rancangan kecelakaan. Dan dia berikan kita masa depan yang penuh harapan ;-) Wohoooooooo 😍😍😍😍😍😍 #befruitfulandmultiply#spreadthelove#love#loveneverfails
2017 Conference: Day 4
How to retain the anointing in your life:
- Stay in prayer and wait in God’s presence
- Have a strong desire and hunger to be filled by the Spirit of God
- Vessel Change: When you decide to live in a certain way and you preposition yourself God will use you as a vessel. You decide whether you will be a vessel. - Bishop Mosa Sono from @grace_bible_church
"Today I'm in Durban to do one of the things that have been on my wishlist. I find it amazing how it all came together. As someone whose talent was groomed by the church I have wanted, for some time, to give back. And as someone who is not only highly spiritually sensitive but also an eccentric Afro essentialist, I knew I wanted it to be a Decolonial and nostalgic project. I wanted to walk our journey through colonialism in song. These songs that accompanied our great grandmothers as they journeyed to work in kitchens for peanuts and abuse, leaving behind their kids to be raised by others - and not knowing if their husbands were ever coming back from the wars, from the mines, from prisons.
These songs that would give birth to our township jazz, mbaqanga, marabi. These songs that would carry hope of a better day. That made us feel safe and loved by the Almighty even as we went through the worst dehumanization possible. These are the songs that gave birth to my creativity.
These sacred songs, amahubo.
I have reworked and packaged them for an orchestra and choir (I'm getting very adept at this 😇)
Huge thanks to Archbishop Mshazi of the Church Of The Holy Ghost who recognized the capacity in me to carry this most important and sacred work. It is an opportunity of a lifetime and I don't take lightly the gifts the universe keeps pushing my way.
I have rather become spotlight shy of late. It is deliberate. I have gone on a journey of rediscovery as we tend to be blinded by the spotlight to who we are. I take my work seriously because I take you seriously. My work must come from pure heart.
I feel with this new work, amahubo, the universe is giving me an opportunity to take stock and cleanse myself. It is my spiritual oasis. The timing is perfect. Even for my emotional state it is perfect.
I love you as I love myself, and this is the greatest love. I do not take your continued support for granted.
Let's see what's next 💜👑💜" - @simphiwedana
Namanya novi.... dia temen seangakatan gw waktu gw kenal taekwondo. Mgkn karna saking cintanya sama taekwondo, setelah lama gw ga ketemu dia, tnyata dia nikah ama anaknya pelatih kita di unit dulu :D seiring waktu berjalan (panjang bgt kl di ceritain :D) tp somehow, tepatnya siy sengaja dadakan aja. Gw ajak dia ke pasar festival. Waktu dia tanya mo mgapain? Gw cuma bilang udah nov dtg aja. Jgn lupa bawa dobok(seragam taekwondo) jam 4-7 mlm yak.
Dan sore itu pas masuk ke dalem yg ada kaget tnyata yg ngumpul di ruangan itu muka muka yg ga asing daan dia jg bilang kl biasanya dia cuma liat di berita atau kalo pas dtg ke gor nonton pertandingan. Nah ceritanya td gw iseng nanyain ke dia soal di gym kmrn. "Wah luar biasa ndru. dikash kesempatan kumpul kumpul. Mengingatkan masa di tahun 2000an gak kerasa udah 17 tahun lebih. N bisa ketemu sang bintang taekwondo lapangan dijamannnya. Bravo." Sdikit cerita kebelakang, 2 taun lalu kl ga salah gw pernah main ke tmpt dia pada saat ujian kenaikan sabuk. Dia meneruskan ada banyak unit almarhum pelatih kami. Ada mgkn 80-100 murid yg ujian. Kebanyakan anak kecil dengan muridnya sabuk merah n item yg masih usia muda. Ya ampun (bukan bermaksud apa apa) tp bner bner timpang bgt dan ada rasa empati yg dalem bgt n bikin sedih). Lalu gw menghampiri novi dan minta ijin setelah acara selesai yg sabuk merah n hitamnya ke utk ke belakang. Makin miris lagi. Setelah bertanya siapa yg pernah bertanding dan menanyakan langsung pertanyaan ini. Siapa yg tanding tapi kalah di partai pertama... 90%angkat tangan. :( Anak anak yg mempunyai semangat namun belum mendapatkan kesempatan. Baik itu kesempatan berlatih yg baik, kesempatan menjadi juara.
Di satu sisi yg lain yg banyak gw temuin bertaun taun lamanya ;p orang orang yg punya kesempatan lebih dr yg lain. Pengalaman berlatih di platcab, platda, platnas, berlatih tanding di luar negri, juara di sana dan sini... So why we don't combine? #loveneverfails#taekwondo#taekwondoindonesia#befruitfulandmultiply
