Repost from @brianheadwelch using @RepostRegramApp - I love when I find signs. God speaks through nature all the time, we just need to have our eyes open. "But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love" - John 4:8 #love#god#godslove#openeyes#korn#brianheadwelch
It is easy to mistake God’s patience for approval of the wrong way we are living. Self evaluation is difficult. It is even more difficult to bring ourselves to God and let him tell us where we need to change. But as Christians we must ask God to point out our sins, so that He can heal them. I am humbled at his patience for me. Are you humbled at his patience for you?
What a beautiful thing to know His love for us is so great that he has kindness for us first, holds back judgment so we can repent and self correct. #goodmorninggirls#romans#biblestudy#watchgodwork#godslove

Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me...Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.” Reckless Love
Immediately when I arrived to the job this morning, I couldn’t resist to just sit outside, in silence for a few minutes admiring What the big man upstairs created for us 😊🙏🏼🤣 #life#godslove#divinebeauty

Today was spent was peeps that I cannot share via social media. However, God worked. It was beautiful. The power of His Spirit is evident and I am so privileged to be able to be a small part and a witness to How He is working in the lives of this precious souls!!
Well, after only one day back at Westmont last week, my son and the rest of the campus had to evacuate school again due to the horrible mudslides! The campus was spared from any major damage, but the surrounding neighborhood areas were not! All the students are finally returning back to school today to restart the second semester of classes. Please join me in prayer as they reunite with friends and faculty and try to move forward. Westmont College has done a wonderful job keeping us all informed and has worked so hard to keep our kids safe from fires and floods! Nathan and I are also so appreciative of the wonderful family that took Gavin and 10 other friends into their home this past week! They showed God’s love to those kids in a huge way! Can’t wait to meet them myself some day! God is good!
A gift I received from one of my clients (who is actually more like family:)) this gift means more to me than she knows. I have always asked God what I was called to do and never really found it in the "church building" but God placed me in the most incredible industry where I get to touch the lives of many women and they touch mine! I found exactly where I belong and where I get to minister😍#herchairherministry#share#godslove#minisrty#love#gointoalltheworld#useme
I wanted to take the time and say I am very grateful for everything that Jesus has done in my life and the things he will continue doing. Life has not always been so easy but I am thankful for the hardships that I've had to endure, because in my most vulnerable toughest and darkest moments that was where God reflected his almighty power. When my strength failed he GAVE me the strength. God's love has NEVER failed me. His deep love for us is incredible. It's an outpouring reckless love that overflows in abundance. His love is so great that He leaves the 99 for YOU. All I can say is thank you Jesus for your reckless love, grace and hope that breathes life back into me.
I didn’t understand where I was, but it was comforting to have my mom there holding my hand. At 10 years old, this room could have been anything but the waiting room that it was. A woman called us back to a room, where a short, balding man stood with a smile.
.It didn’t all make sense then, but in retrospect all of the blurry edges come into focus. My daily breakdowns must have seemed insurmountable to my parents, and so began therapy and my fight with depression.
The room, the short man with the smile, I’m sure it was all supposed to help, unfortunately all it did was help me form a view that would take years of undoing. I determined that emotions were bad and because I had so many of them all at once and in different directions, I was also bad. I was made wrong and the remainder of my childhood I did all I could to “toughen up.”
Turns out that trying to toughen up wasn’t going to grant my freedom from the emotions that were holding me hostage. I don’t remember how many times I planned out my death, but it seemed like suicide held the only key.
My first year as a Christian, I was convinced my depression had walked out of my life forever - I had a new life and an indescribable joy. So you can imagine my surprise when I looked down and held a knife in one hand against the open wrist of the other. “Either kill me or heal me God! I can’t take the pain anymore.”
Again, God stopped me. I asked my church community to pray for me and again, I thought I was healed. Years later, I was married with two kids, running a business and a ministry...everything seemed to be going according to plan. But there it was, again. Had God failed me? Was this God I was preaching about, that utterly unconcerned with my life?
I made a deal with depression, and I got the sour end. I gave it everything - my marriage, my children, basically my entire life.
This was the darkest place I had ever experienced. Hopeless and empty, I screamed “please fix me!” I wasn’t expecting to get an answer, and I honestly just wanted to scream at God. Yet, in that moment, from within my core, there was a voice. A voice that I knew wasn’t mine.
