Our women ministry #DOK gathered together yesterday and reflected of that very day 01.13.2018 and what our FORCE OF FAITH looked and sounded like. Many of us had fear but because LOVE casts out all fear, and GOD IS LOVE... we found ourselves at peace missle or no missle and now a burning 🔥 is upon us to reach more of our loved ones and share the #gospel If you’re looking for a church, or even a women’s group to be a part of, I’d love to help you. This group of women from all generations will welcome you with BIG open arms! Need prayer, I am here. #beblessed#godisincontrol#Godisgreat#daughteroftheking#sistersinchrist
James 2:14-26New King James Version (NKJV)
Faith Without Works Is Dead
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b] works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also
# give God all Honor, Glory, and Praise. Accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior. Your life will be forever changed. Thank you Jesus.
Let’s talk about water. Truth is I’ve never been good at drinking enough water. I can go hours, even the majority of the day, without drinking anything. I’ve always been that way but have been really trying to get in the habit of drinking at least 80 oz. every day.
Well my body must like actually being hydrated because today I barely got one of these tumblers down all day at work and I definitely have a little headache going on. Think it’s from my body craving water so I’m over here chugging H2O right now.
Any tips on remembering to drink water while at work? I just get distracted and it sits there untouched for hours. Darn work for taking my attention away from hydrating!
I thought I’d share this with you all:
For over three months nearly 800,000 immigrants like me have been at the mercy of political debate, and it is scary to see that yours and my dreams could be gone at the blink of an eye. Knowing nobody gave me anything and if I made this far it’s purely by GRACE and HARDWORK, I didn’t steal or cheat. This country has been a blessing to me, has raised the man I love and allowed us to give birth and guide two beautiful US Citizens. I cannot thank God and this nation enough for this last twelve years, you’d know that being here for me and my family is about a million times better than back home in Venezuela. I hated leaving home—my family and my happy place—, but I’m grateful my dad dragged me here when he did.
I personally don’t want much—always hope for the most though — just to be allowed to work and make an honest living, go to school and leave something for my future generations.
Father God you always have better plans than ours so I leave this one to You and rest on You, protests, rallies and speeches are inspiring but will not effect change but prayer and a walk with You will change me and change my circumstances for Your glory and not a man’s.
My unyielding God is my Champion and He fights for me, His One and Only Son is my Attorney at Law, and His Presence will effect change for His Glory, and only His.
Is God closing a door. And you keep trying to keep it open. Have you ever thought He has something better for you. Let it stay closed & keep your faith. His plans are perfect & perfect timing. It's just around the corner. #godisincontrol#letgoletgod
2 Corinthians 4:16. “Life is ever changing. When a door closes, another opens. It's never a good idea to get too comfortable in a particular time and place because it will change. I think the secret is to walk fearlessly into every new day, eager to embrace whatever life presents you. There is so much to see and experience. Be excited.”😊 Thank you Lord for the changing of Seasons. 🙏 #godisgood#godisincontrol#godisfaithful ❤️
I tried to explain in my story through odd illustrations that recovery is not linear...
You might know people recovering from their past and/ or behaviors who can make it seem like they are good to go for life or they are completely “recovered” but don’t fool yourself. We all have our own demons and battles that we are fighting on the daily. You are not alone.
I have relapsed (not referring to the usage of only mind altering substances) time and time again. I have picked myself up off extremely dirty grounds, brushed off the dust, and kept trudging the road to happy destinies only to fall off the path once more later down the road.
I would beat myself up for every time I slipped. ‘How could you have let yourself get here again?‘, ‘you clearly have no respect for yourself’, ‘you’re so selfish’, ‘you’re a sad excuse’ (everything I said to myself + 1000 others things). Somehow I would work up enough courage to get honest with someone else about my relapse in hopes they could help or guide me and they would usually reject me or gossip, which is a common response. The guilt and shame was too much to bear at times making me feel naked, weak and lonely, and making it much more difficult to see the light. I would find myself wanting to self sabotage even more. Surely, it is a viscous cycle. 🔐Judging and shaming yourself is the number one thing that will keep you stuck. Don’t listen to the lies the enemy is slapping you in the face with. Don’t focus on the others who have a hard time forgiving you until you have first forgiven yourself- then make your amends if needed and move on with your life towards the freedom you deserve.
If you are coming back from a relapse / slip up of any sort (whatever that looks like to you) fill your head with this very truth: ✨You, YES YOU, are worthy of everything and anything good.
Forgive yourself, identify the reason behind why you relapsed, have faith, take it one day at a time, and take action in the rebuilding of your house from ground up. Yes, you get to start all over again and it can be a tough pill to swallow but look at it as a new opportunity to search even deeper within than you ever have before to a newfound “land”.
Left work early drove myself to the ER knowing the moment your not feeling well immediately take your self to the ER you never know what will happen, I don’t know what’s wrong with me but it feels like a really bad stomach flu, I don’t care for needles but this blood work and IV feels really good I’ll be all good just want this pain in my stomach to go away! I just want to be normal again I’ll be just fine just take care of myself and take care of your health

Hey😄 hope all you guys are well.
Fruits of the Spirit are characteristics and things we should aim to be. Jesus had all those characteristics 🙈 “Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, Lord, are good.”
Psalm 25:6-7 These are verses that shows Gods goodness to us❤️ God is good. He never fails us. Even when we mess up he still loves us and blesses us.
We should follow the same example and be good to others although it can be hard.
God was so good to us so we should share his goodness with others ❤️ #Godisincontrol#Godisgood
✨Eph. 6:12 niv✨
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the SPIRITUAL FORCES of EVIL in the heavenly realms."
✨2 Tim. 3:12 niv✨
"In fact, EVERYONE who wants to live a GODLY life in CHRIST JESUS will be PERSECUTED.."
This speaks for itself. This is a serious walk with more to come. Let's be inside of God's Word and let's be prepared. Amen.
“This is God’s way — Preparing unfathomable things even when the slightest hints of them can be barely detected. This is God’s way — crafting supernatural downpours behind the tiniest, most innocuous cloud ever. We must live in light of this. It’s what shifts us from doubt and worry to stability and faith. It’s what enables us to trust that the Father is able to come through at the perfect moment, no matter how far removed the possibility seems from our current vantage point. •
Remember that even a little cloud of hope, when God’s word is behind it, points towards a downpour of promise, potential, and possibility.
So train your prayerful eyes towards the heavens.”
