The fact of this life is that we WILL encounter challenges, obstacles, rough patches, and potholes but we do not have to let these things stop us. You see challenges make life very interesting. I know every challenge is not easy to deal with but think of it. If we did not have these tough times in life, big or small, would life really be all that interesting? I feel like it would be boring. But the best thing about ANY challenge is that we have the ability to overcome them. We do NOT have to let them get us down or stop us from achieving the goal we set out before ourselves to achieve. We can overcome obstacles and hardships. It really truly does make life a lot more meaningful when are able to overcome challenges. We see that we are stronger than we thought we were or that we can do things we never thought we were capable of doing. We don’t have to walk around sad and hanging our heads down because we have a trial. We can be vibrant and happy because the Bible says that we are building our character and perseverance and being purified as gold when we go through various trials and tribulations. Jesus never really promised us a walk in a park of roses but He did promise to never leave us or forsake us. He did say we can take heart because He has already overcome this world. It really does not matter what you are going through. It could be relational issues or health issues or issues on the job, I want you to know God is with you every step of the way. I want you to remember that life would probably be boring if we didn’t have at least one person who rubbed us the wrong way and we learned how to speak up and stand up for ourselves. It wouldn’t be as intriguing if we didn’t have something to look back on and LEARN from. I can definitely say that life has more meaning because of these various trials. It has not been easy by any means but as I get older and I LEARN more I am able to reflect and learn how I can learn from these issues when they come up the next time. Life can be meaningful if we take the right approach to our issues. No we don’t want them, but yes, we can grow and learn and become a better person than we were before.
Check out @heatherllove latest clip and YouTube sermon! It’s engagement season like crazy and I so wanted to be one of them. I wanted it so bad I started to rush ahead of God . God stepped in and said not yet as I watched half of my friends become and engaged(literally almost everyone) this year or have a new baby. We must wait on God , he is the maker of time . How time is so perfect ! Stay busy building yourself to be a kingdom child of God always.As hard as it is we have to be patient, but that’s the reason I created this page. Not to show you how it’s done and not to rub how cheery and positive I seem to be. Some days are not great, some days I’m angry , impatient and worried. I’m not always positive nor do I just read my word like I know I should. Yes I get jealous of those in seemingly perfect relationships who are now engaged. We will grow together in Christ as we share and tell our imperfections. #WaitonGod
I wish I would have truly trusted and believed my parents words with my actions when they would say God had someone like you for me.
I wanted to believe it so badly but continued to date all the wrong guys with all the red flags.
What an absolute waste of time that always led to utter disappointment.
Thankful to God for being faithful in my disobedience and for having plans much higher and bigger than my own.
I don't want to imagine my life without God most importantly, but secondly I do I want to live a life without you.
You have redeemed my idea and standards of a Godly man and cared for me in ways I didn't think would ever happen for me.
To God alone be the glory and the praise for restoring our personal stories and crossing our paths.
Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." #waitonthelord#waitongod#worththewait#godisincontrol#romans828#godisgood#hiswaysarehigher#latenightthoughts#praisegod
When I look at all my years of singleness, dating and waiting, I could see them as years of waste, but I would be wrong. God was using those years to make me into a new kind of man. I believe that if us single men would embrace this and seek to enhance it, not only would growth occur as a Christian, but it would also produce a deeper attractiveness to a potential wife. The one common denominator for every quality Christian woman who wants to date/married is that they want to date/marry a godly man. The greater the godliness in the man, the greater the desire in the woman to date/marry him.
While our desire to grow must be primarily motivated by the Gospel and pleasing to the Lord, one wonderful byproduct is that I am becoming a man of character, integrity, selflessness, mercy, service and leadership that a woman of spiritual character will want.
There is nothing "wrong" with being single or staying single. But if you want to be date/married, that holy desire must be pursued with holy passion for God that makes nice guys deeply masculine and prepares them to lead and love beautifully feminine women.
Is God delaying your rescue? Did He begin something in your life that you’re waiting on Him to complete? Are you waiting on the birthing of a promise or the revival of a dream? Rest assured, the pause is intentional. When God presses ‘pause’ on your life, that pause is pregnant with purpose. If He would have showed up immediately to Lazarus’ grave, the miracle would have been diluted. But God often waits until the situation is out of everyone else’s hands before He places it into His hands. You are delayed on purpose my love. Your miracle is coming, dare to endure the pause. When you finally birth the significant miracle that follows, you’ll be a testament to the Word: God making all things beautiful in His time. #daughtersandvessels
The nastiest of four letter words. I am learning. I am growing. I am waiting. I know that God’s timing and plan are PERFECT. Seasons of waiting are not fun but the blessing in the other side will far outweigh the anguish. #waitongod#madeformore#seasons#fall#grateful
When you have a job you don't like, or co-workers who get on your nerves, or you get annoyed by a customer...remember these words! In ALL things, do them for Him! Don't rush to leave a job until you asked God, "do YOU need me here?" #godfirst#manofgod#womanofgod#stayinyourlane#waitongod
💯💯💯💯💯 If posting this everyday wasn’t annoying I would do it. Some of y’all will read this and still allow the pressures of social media to rule your life. Stop watching people. Stop being envious of what you see other people have! What’s for you will be for you AND IN YOUR TIME! I never worry and I never fret. My god ain’t fail me yet........... #happymonday#truth#waityourturn#waitongod#thatsit#nuffsaid#stopwatchingpeople
When in doubt. Wait on God for your decision. When decisions seems urgent, we want an answer, right now. We pray about it. But if God does not answer quick enough. We start to doubt it will come to pass....
Don't make rush decisions on your own. When your in doubt, you need the guiding, leading, and direction of the holy spirit, God, and his Word for the right decision in the matter. In doubt, pray.
You will ALWAYS harvest what YOU plant. So I wait as I plant because I want the GOD things in my life I want Jesus Christ to guide me into the "LIGHT" from my night. SURLY only your GOODNESS and MERCY shall follow me and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever (psalms23:6) so as I wait in the hallway my PRAISE WON'T SEVER 🗣 #UNFAILING#DailyBread
