do not compare yourself to her
she is beautiful
you are beautiful
you both are two different kinds of beautiful
you can’t compare the sun to the moon
and you shouldn’t
so when you see that woman
you say “god bless her” and “god bless me”
and keep it moving, love.
OMG ! 😍😵🐝
It’s just up the block
Classic Black tall tale (via blackproverbs)
requested: here you go! 😊
I'm a Christian girl and I want to have a life of holiness, but my mind is a pornographic movie, I also feel attracted to some women. What do I do?
Perfect verse for this situation:
"How can a young person keep His way pure: by living according to the Word."
Paul goes a bit deeper into this cleansing through the Word:
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. "
Also, we’re called to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. This all happens with the Bible as our catalyst.
Read the Bible.
Read large portions. Whole books at a time if you can.
Study the context and read it like you would a story.
Meditate on it. Read as deeply as you can into the intention behind the words.
Apply as much as you can to your own life.
The Word of God is perfect and living and active. It’s like planting seeds in your soul. God can take something you’ve read weeks ago or years ago and bring it to mind at the right time. He can use it to change your speech and thought patterns. You’ll find that you’re thinking and talking and imagining more and more purely and righteously.
Who are you without the hurt? That’s what you need to explore
God speaks to us in whispers [1 Kings 19:11-13]
because in order to hear a whisper
you have to be close
There’s a fine line between adoration and worship.
Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.

God has grace in store for you every single day. Grace is His supernatural empowerment, His unmerited favor on your life. All throughout scripture, we see God giving daily grace, empowerment and provision to His people. For example, when the people of Israel were in the wilderness headed toward the Promised Land, God gave them manna each morning to eat. It would just appear on the ground. But, He specifically instructed them to gather up only enough for one day’s supply. In fact, if they got more than that, it wouldn’t last. It would spoil. They were learning to trust God’s grace every single day.
In the same way, God doesn’t give us grace for a year at a time or even a month at a time. No, every 24 hours God has a fresh, new supply of grace, favor, wisdom and forgiveness. How are you going to make it through the seasons of your life? One day at a time. Look for His grace today. Look for His provision today. Look for His hand of favor and blessing today because He promises to supply everything you need for today.
The most revolutionary thing you can do is stay alive.
Don't you just love it when you're going through a situation and all of a sudden you read a verse, and maybe you've read the same verse a thousand times before that, but finally everything just clicks and you understand things you didn't before? :)
Yes. Love it. The Holy Spirit reveals truth exactly when we need it.
