“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.”
James 1:17 NLT Some time ago a friend entrusted another friend with a beautiful blanket that she loved for safekeeping. The blanket was thought to be lost when I found it, and almost two years later returned it to its owner at a time when home comforts were few and far between. God blesses us in many ways but the littlest treasures can often bring the biggest smiles. ❤️Faith❤️Hope❤️Love❤️ #blessings#beblessed#hope#comethoufount#truestory#goodgoodfather#james1v17#fathersheart#Faith#Hope#Love#FaithHopeLove
The gifts God has given you may seem trivial to you. Those natural gifts that He deposited in your DNA may not seem anything to you, but someone needs you to use them. Someone is waiting for the artist in you to inspire them to use her gifts to create. Another person is waiting for the music deep inside you to be released, giving him courage to write the next best worship song. Still another is listening to hear a word from God you'll give to encourage, to empower, and to embolden her to start that book that's been burning in her soul for years.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's grace. ~ #1peter4v10
Every Good and Perfect Gift comes from the Father Above! ( #james1v17 ) Use yours to His glory!
#beencouraged#beempowered to share this word to His Glory and for your love f or Him and others!
It sums up how wonderful our God is! He IS #agoodgoodfather ❤️ He NEVER changes, and He is NEVER hidden in shadow for HE is the Father of Lights!
HE gave the #giftoflife to us, ETERNAL life, in Jesus.
This is a favorite verse to send with new baby gifts. This day I am reminded of a young woman and her husband who said goodbye to their tiny one just 35 days after he came to them. @starkstrong416 , today is the day I remind you and Jason that this new son God will give you soon is healed and whole in Jesus's Mighty Name! His heart is strong, beating full of life, with a whisper of Ashton in it just for you, saying, "Thank you, Mommy, for giving me life!" You are loved! Be loved by Jesus!
#beencouraged#beempowered#beemboldened to share the good news of #james1v17 with someone who may be struggling with infant or pregnancy loss, with infertility, or with grief post-abortion. I cannot relate to these things, but there are some who can. For them, my heart cries "He is a good good Father, and you are NOT alone!
Without further ado, we are very proud to introduce our son and brother, Mr. James Edison Lyons, IV. "Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows." (James 1:17, NCV)
With much love,
Joey, Christi & Eliana
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."
Is there anything that holds us from being thankful??
I am 24 weeks today!💙 The feeling of him kicking and moving around constantly has me feeling overwhelmed with so much love and gratitude. This baby boy is truly a gift from above, and I thank God every day for my many blessings! #james1v17#blessed#babyboy#babystraka#24weekspregnant
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows James 1:17
And just like that you are 2 months (and a week) old. We love every minute we spend with you and it's a joy to watch you grow. We love you bugaboo!
Finished 5th @avpbeach SF with @chase_frish - survived against two tough teams earlier in the day then had a battle with @tyroneloomis and @mmckibbi to get to the semis and just missed out. Much respect to those guys for making plays and earning it. Chase was making absolutely ridiculous plays all weekend on top of being a tough competitor and a great teammate. Heads high and ready to get back to work. @ledgelegion_ Frishies Friends brought it on and off the court all tourney - you guys are the 🐐s #avpsf @oakley @lululemon @unrlco #james1v17#whateverisgoodandperfect
Just because i miss her. My beautiful wife. This was taken on #tablemountain on our first date and day out together. 😘😍💓 She was worth the wait and my awesome reward for trusting GOD for the right "one"...she is the ONE. And now we have a beautiful 8 month old little one. 😀
Every good and perfect gift comes from GOD. #james1v17
