"People don’t often see the wrong turns, confusion, and tangled mess that happens before we enter a season that looks victorious. And I’ll be the first to admit that my current season was born out of a messy, heartbreaking, disaster of a season.
In fact, God burned my lifelong dream to the ground."

I have attended IF:Gathering the past three years. I attended via webcast the first year and then with a group for the second two. I will have to say experiencing this with a group is so much more fun but however you can participate - just make sure that you do! Every year the theme is different and you will be the better for this time spent studying God's Word, worshipping and listening to amazing teachers.
This years theme is: what if we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? We will be looking at one of Paul's letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel.
We want to give God away in the very places where He put us, so we are going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we're doing matters, so If:2018 will be a reminder and a celebration!
If you've been to IF in the past, leave a comment about your favorite experience or how it impacted you. I would love to hear about it.
For more information go to www.ifgathering.com
Join us Sat., Oct. 21, at Hartland Orchard for apple picking and fall festival fun (hay rides, jumping pillows, corn maze, etc.).
If you or your family would like a shuttle ride to the location, and an opportunity to connect with local refugee families, contact Matt Tucker (you can call the office of email him through the website). More details are available on the website, too.
Tuesday 17 October 2017 "For you are still of the flesh..." - 1Cor 3:3
Do you desire to know God more? You say "yes I do, I want to get to know Him more, but let me just watch one more series episode". Or, "let me make a playlist to set the mood and just pray as I feel led by the Spirit". Oh dear! The devil has us in his hands and he's playing us like puppets. Don't you see you're still of the flesh, preparing a place in your heart for the pleasures of this world, denouncing God's place? A right view of this holy God will make us see our desperate need for Him, for our survival and a low view of God simply gives a superficial desire for Him, like, McDonald's. We've made this world a cozy home and wonder why God seems optional and boring to us - "for you are still of the flesh"... We're well equipped by God to have Him in the rightful throne of our heart, thus, let us make WAR and not be found to _still_ be in the flesh.
I @nancygatima am currently trying to create this platform for all the youth to share anything they'd like to but also try to build the youth all over our three campuses! Meetings have been taking different African Caribbean Christian Fellowship places in Aberdeen,Edinburgh and Glasgow for 27 years! If you hear me say "aunties" or "uncles" or "sister" "brother" it's because through the years we have become a family that supports,helps and care for one another.
People have come and gone but ACCF is and will always be a home away from home. We don't have our own designated ACCF building we used to meet at St.George's and now we are at Old Michael Church. We have had a many bbqs,parties and guests coming to share stories and Word's.
In terms of youth Saturday's are what we always have looked forward to growing up and having role models in our fellowship that help us to be better Christians in their teachings. In the beginning in Aberdeen we basically had more kids than adults!
Every Easter we do a retreat we all come together and spend a long weekend together this has been going on for a very long time there are many a story from back in the day. The retreats are fun because we meet the other youths,hold discussions and get to hear the Word. Oh and of course Variety Night which is always on the last day you can perform something and you're always encouraged to show what talent God has blessed you with. Also can't forget Chinese Food that is always ordered at least once for the youth,lol! We meet again November have a joint fellowship this is only one day but it is good to catch up before the end of the year.
I was planning on doing a repost from my account today, then I decided maybe today is a day that someone needs to hear that their joy or their sorrow is not something they can't share. These words of Frederick Douglass express precisely a fundamental fact of humanity that bypasses any & all labels, station in life, gender, or anything that we would use to distinguish one human from another. Underlying any of that, is a heart & soul that experiences life. Smiles & tears will be part of it. There is a brotherhood in that, but in the Body, we don't just recognize this. We live it because we know there's is no difference. "He made from one man every nation of mankind." Acts 17:26 We understand this, so we "love the brotherhood." 1Pet 2:17 Loving this way, we begin to see that we truly are more than just members. "So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." Rom 12:5 As a part of this Body, you & I own each other. (Which is pretty ironic considering I lettered a quote by an ex-slave) But this ownership is unlike typical ownership. It manifests as communal rejoicing over the beautiful things, & shared care/concern over the suffering. In the book of Acts, the 1st Century church actually lived like this. But as time progressed, we moved away from this & now, in the modern world, we are so individualized. It isn't completely missing, though. I know, because I've seen it in action in the lives of those who believe & act on it because they love the family of God. So, I encourage you to look past what separates us, no matter what it is, & believe that we, those who joined with Him,are now one, despite anything else you see or hear.This means that your joy & your sorrow are mine.The reverse is true too.And since it is, it's what we live out. "Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn." Romans 12:15 Also, when those who haven't accepted Christ see this, it can change their lives. John 13:35 So, don't hesitate to share. Don't hold back. You can't be part of a brotherhood & live like an only child. (it was too early & this didn't come out perfect, but hey, since we own each other, my mistakes are yours too😊jk)
#restandrelease week 3 day 2
It is command to not be anxious, to pray and to receive the peace of God. I am constantly reminding myself to not talk about something before I consult God first. Insecurities are loud, faith is quiet--at first. We want to share our stories to give God glory and to help people see Jesus through us. I do not mean we should not talk to the wise people in our lives who help point us to God when we are struggling. That is necessary. I just know I have to make sure I don't get so caught up in talking to people that I forget to talk to God. He always will listen to us. He loves me so much He sacrificed His son for me. Think of it like that. Take everyone else out of the equation and say, "God loves me. Jesus died for me." Add your name in Philippians 4:6-9. "Laura-Jane, do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart, Laura-Jane, and your mind in Christ Jesus. Finally, Laura-Jane, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, Laura-Jane,--practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you."
Glory to God!
A prayer for Truth🙏: .
Heavenly Father we come to You in poverty of spirit, to seek Your face. We pray for wisdom and for understanding of the truth of your Word in which you have given us. .
You promised that Your Holy Spirit would guide Your children into all truth – especially those that seek You with all their whole hearts. Lord we want to seek You and know You more and more. Keep us from false doctrine and teaching Lord, and strengthen us in our pursuit of Christ. .
Guide us in life as we read Your Word and study the scriptures. We ask for a discerning heart and pray that you will keep us on straight paths living in Your Word of Truth, so that we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. .
Thank You Father, in Jesus name, .
The rest of the lyrics are:
Believe Him and all will be well;
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!
Such amazing words! Be blessed, encouraged, and have a great day 🤗 .
*Forgot my watermark, lol*
““To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.”
Matthew 17: Jesus gave a few disciples this glimpse of who he really was, and of what was to come - him in his full heavenly glory. And when the Father spoke they fell flat on their faces. I love that Jesus touched them to give them courage. He is our bridge to the Father. Because of him we need not fear. Where do you need to feel his touch today to have courage?⠀
Then when confronted with a boy they couldn't heal, Jesus challenged them on the power of faith. Nothing is impossible. We know this isn't a license to do whatever we want. But I think as we grow closer and closer to the Father through Jesus, we will find our faith lines up with His will, and in his kingdom, nothing will be impossible. No need to fear evil. No need to fear suffering. Not that we won't face evil or suffering, but that we will face it with the resurrection power of Christ. And with that nothing is impossible. What do you need faith for this week? What impossible person or situation do you need to bring to Jesus? ⠀
Ora de la siguiente manera:
Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
que sea siempre santo tu nombre.
Que tu reino venga pronto.
Que se cumpla tu voluntad en la tierra
como se cumple en el cielo.
Danos hoy el alimento que necesitamos,
y perdónanos nuestros pecados,
así como hemos perdonado a los que pecan contra nosotros.
No permitas que cedamos ante la tentación,
sino rescátanos del maligno.
»Si perdonas a los que pecan contra ti, tu Padre celestial te perdonará a ti; pero si te niegas a perdonar a los demás, tu Padre no perdonará tus pecados. -Jesus (Mateo 6:9-15 NTV) #thebeonelife#verdad#discipulado thebeonelife.org
Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need,
and forgive us our sins,
as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.
“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. -Jesus (Matthew 6:9-15 NLT) #thebeonelife#truthtuesday#discipleship thebeonelife.org
What do you do when you’ve been insulted, slandered, or injured? The thought of “sweet revenge” is tempting, but there’s nothing sweet about human vengeance. What we long for is perfect justice, and this can only be carried out by the righteous Judge, King Jesus. ⠀
Read 2 Thessalonians 1:5-12. The Christians living in Thessalonica knew what it was to be wronged. Paul was writing to the Thessalonians to encourage them during a season of suffering intensified by the despair of false teaching. There were plenty of reasons for the Thessalonian believers to seek retribution. And Paul never diminished their pain. Contrary to what you may have heard, the Bible never glosses over evil. It never pretends that evil does not exist. God’s Word calls evil “evil.” It calls suffering “suffering” and pain “pain.” ⠀
The Bible says that when believers suffer unjustly and experience crushing circumstances beyond their control, not only will God be with them—present in a very special way—He will also not overlook the injustice that has taken place (see 2 Thessalonians 1:6-7; 1 Peter 4:12-14, 5:10; Matthew 12:36; 1 Corinthians 4:5). ⠀
When Jesus Christ returns in glory, He will set everything right. Those believers who have suffered in this life will be comforted, rewarded, and welcomed into God’s Kingdom. But those who have rejected Christ, mocked God, and brought pain to His people will be punished “with everlasting destruction” (2 Thessalonians 1:9). ⠀
Instead of spending your life filled with anger, bitterness, and thoughts of revenge, comfort yourself and others with God’s promise of perfect justice and the wonder of His grace for you. ⠀
Prayer: Lord, help me to trust in Your perfect justice and to forgive, remembering the grace I have received. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.⠀
“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19). ⠀
"Prayer: Heavenly Father, You are good and You are in control of life and death. Your sovereign rule and divine, perfect justice calls me to live a life of truth, goodness and virtue. Even if I’ve settled this question in my heart and mind, help me to live in a way that gives evidence to that reality. May my life never be just about me and the trivial pursuit of happiness or pleasure. May others see in me, an abiding trust in You. In Jesus’ name, amen."
Definitely guilty of not reading yesterday's #allin60days , but am making up for it today.
Acts 22 is full of aha moments, including the overview of Saul's transformation into Paul. (If God can reform a known persecutor, there's hope for all of us.) Verse 10 jumps out: "'I asked, 'What should I do, Lord?' And the Lord told me, 'Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told everything you are to do.'" God could've easily given Paul the rundown on His playbook and what he wanted him to accomplish. Instead, He requested Paul go elsewhere for further instruction. This reiterates two things to me: God doesn't always unravel His will in one sitting, and that our lives and purpose are often tied to someone else.
I'm guilty of expecting God to lay things out for me with CliffNotes, footnotes, and a neon sign for extra understanding. I constantly have to remind myself that I won't get all the answers now, but have to activate that little thing called trust with its cousin faith to know God is preparing the way I should go. God is not an instant God. We aren't going to know *all* of His answers and directions in one sitting. And quite frankly, I don't think we could thoroughly process it all if we tried.
Once Paul met Ananias, he received further instruction about God's will and His purpose. Since Ananias was a *godly* man, someone who likely was obedient and constantly seeking the Lord's wants instead of man, he was equipped with the knowledge to instruct Paul where to go and what to do. "The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong."
Psalms 37:30. It's so important to pay attention to who you seek guidance from as not everyone is connected to the will and purposes of God -- or are constantly seeking to hear from Him through studying His Word, prayer, etc.
Paul's journey, like ours, wasn't something he was to do on his own. He needed God's instruction, to be in a place in his life where he could *hear* Him, and had to rely on others -- his companions who helped lead him to Damascus and Ananias -- to get him where he needed to go, both physically and spiritual.
Our purpose is bigger than ourselves and what we get out of it.
-When God Says NO-
2 guys who danced in my post are Keone Madrid and Vinh Nguyen from LA, USA...
I love and adore them so much as i started to idolize them without even realize it 😥
What is being idolized someone or something?
I will give u the clue..
I ADORE their craft so much, i wanna meet them and learn from them which make me saving MONEY for this "Godly purpose"..
Why Godly purpose?
Since my mentor @andrewdjuana ask me to become a builder, not a player (in dance scene), i thought having classes from them is so important for me, so i can teach KGC Dance Community better, so i can have a better dance ministry PERFORMANCE 😗
Besides Singapore, I also DREAMED abt going to LA coz i love their beach, but the most important is i can meet and learn from them in their own home base (Kinjaz Dojo and Building Block)
For the past 2 years, im so excited getting UPDATE about what they posted in IG than updating abt my spiritual needs..
Most of my TIME, i checked their IG a lot than i checked my bible...
I DON'T REALIZE that i live with idolize from time to time..
Idolize some Korean singers (Big Bang), idolize my achievement and my leaders at work, idolize some one who is very handsome beyond words, and lately, idolize this 2 dancers...
Don't u know that God doesn't like when u idolize something/someone besides him?
Yes i knowww..
I thought im not idolize them, im just getting INSPIRED by them 😎
Until i meditate a lot, begin to have a proper bible study, i read a lot, i see you tube a lot (not about dance, but about gospel)..
I realize that this is wrong!
And i have to change!
My only one idol is JESUS (All of Me, because All of God, THROUGH All of Christ)
Karena itu matikanlah dalam dirimu segala sesuatu yang duniawi, yaitu percabulan, kenajisan, hawa nafsu, nafsu jahat dan juga keserakahan, yang sama dgn PENYEMBAHAN BERHALA, semuanya itu mendatangkan murka Allah
1 Korintus 6:9-10
Janganlah sesat! Orang cabul, PENYEMBAH BERHALA, orang berzinah, banci, orang pemburit,
pencuri, orang kikir, pemabuk, pemfitnah dan penipu tidak akan mendapat bagian dlm Kerajaan Allah
A Bible verse for your day. Preaching to myself. I needed my own reminders so I figured I'd share. Lettering my Bible seems to be a good way for me to memorize verses, work through things in my head and relax with a better focus in mind. If y'all have any prayer requests you can always let me know below or send a quick DM and I'll add it to my list. ❤️🙏
