Two are better than one, especially in your journey with God. Sometimes you can trip and fall along the way, sometimes you have questions you can not answer yourself, and you have someone there to help you, to guide you, it's such a blessing to have someone along side you in your spiritual journey, I know I'm so very blessed with such amazing people around me, and I'm so grateful, #trulyblessed #together #united #journeywithgod #jesus #bible #verse #quote #dailyverse #scripture #share #lovejesus #biblefood #armourofgod #friends #instapray #instashare #biblequotes #eclesiastes #ourgod #ourfather #heavenlyfather #lord #christ #christianity #childofgod #christianfellowship

As a recovering people-pleaser, I still struggle through those thoughts that I’m being selfish if I need a break to take care of myself. As a Christian, I’ve found it’s almost easier for me to justify those actions because we’re supposed to put the needs of others before our own. So how can I find balance? . When helping others starts to feel like a burden, that’s probably a key indicator that you need to take a break. It’s not supposed to be that way. . I’m starting to realize that taking a break is the opposite of “selfish.” When you STOP to rest and care for yourself, you start to find that helping others becomes more natural again. Those burden-bearing feelings can turn back into the joy you get when you’re pouring into the lives around you. . If you’ve ever flown before, just remember the airline safety rule to put your oxygen mask on first before you start to help others. You can’t help the person next to you if you’re passed out on the floor! . How do you find rest? For me, rest can look like a lot of things. One of my favorite ways to rest is with a hot cup of tea, comfy pajamas, fuzzy socks, lit candles, kitty cuddles, and a good book. Just the thought of that warms my soul. . All that being said, I think I’ll sign off to go rest now! 😂😉 . #makingjoyahabit

Forgiveness. Joseph demonstrates this virtue perfectly. He had just revealed to his brothers that the Egyptian ruler who would decide their fate was the one they left to be traded as a slave and who they told their father was dead—him, Joseph. The brothers feared Joseph would seek revenge on them. But instead Joseph forgives them. Not to let them off the hook. But to let God, who sees through to the heart, do the judging. This is how God asks us to approach our perpetrators. We can say when we forgive them, am I in the place of God? God will serve justice in ways we cannot possibly imagine. And a change of heart is our ultimate desire even for those who do us wrong.

empowering. that's all i can say. it's infinite. it's more than we could ever imagine. through our faith we are given potential. but we are also given a path. a path to use that potential for righteousness, for growth, for healing, for loving, and for become one with him. #sharethefaith #growyourfaith #kidswithchrist #empowering #faith #christian #christianity #christianwoman #christianblogger #christianfamily #faithforall #faithquotes #bibleverses #godshots #dailybibleverses #subscriptionboxes

Meet Chenier! - Chenier is 28 years old, from Georgia, and works in finance. She describes herself as an unpretentious nontraditional Christian with an informal writing style.  Chenier will write about finance/financial tips, and "can-do" articles to help meditate on scriptures and began to incorporate them into daily vernacular. - In her own words: “Former money hungry cynic & recovering pushover; now growing and learning my truth. Surely shifting my life to walk in love & faith over coins & savagery. Honesty is a priority and I can’t play like I’m the pillar of Christianity. However, I’m truly making a genuine effort to seek God and be like Jesus more now than I ever have in my adult life.” - Fave book in the Bible and why: Psalms. It’s more sentimental than anything. My childhood consisted of memorizing Psalms 23 & 91 to be recited daily and on command. - Fave Bible Verse and why: Mark 9:23 NLT "What do you mean, 'If I can'?" Jesus asked. "Anything is possible if a person believes." As Che says: “I LOVE this verse!!! Jesus' attitude in this situation is my whole mood if I were Jesus. I really feel him on this one. And he just put the finishing touches on it---dropped phenomenal knowledge to show how limitless we truly are. One translation says "Everything is possible if one believes." Everything?! Like really think, we don’t even know what everything is but we know it is possible - any and everything!  Absolutely amazing. This forever inspires me when faith is extra low. - Female Bible figure with whom you most identify and why: According to Chenier: “This changes, but currently, the woman with the issue of blood because my period be outta control. 🤣 But seriously, I aspire to and am working towards her level of faith.” . . . . #christianblog #christianwriter #christian #christianmentalhealth #womensministry #christianwomen #womenintheword #womenoffaith #christianministry #biblestudy #faith #jesus #christianity #mentalhealth #womenshealth #heavenandheels - #regrann

Jeremiah 31:11 For the Lord has redeemed Jacob and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he" I believe this text was talking about the victory on the cross, before Christ came man lost it's Dominion power at the garden of Eden through sin,and man was subjected to powers that became great because of man's sin,but Christ came to redeem and ransome us from the hand of sin and through him alone we now possess the power to be greater than the power that seems to be greater than us We are stronger and have the power through the redemption blood of Christ God bless you #jesusculture #jesuschristislord #Jesussaves #Jesuschrist #Christ #christianity #christianquotes #church #christiansbloggers #christianbody #christianblog #christianwomen #christian #thegospel #thecrossblogger #biblicaltruths #faith #faithinspired #salvation #redeemed #christlike #livingword #christfollower #gospel

Do not get caught up in the political left vs right, red vs blue charades.. it's all a gimmick to create disorder and disputes, to invoke chaos and riots so that they can install martial law to strong arm the people into getting the Mark of the Beast (RFID chip) and to implement the One World Order when the AntiChrist is revealed with a strong delusion... Aliens are demons, Obama is the AntiChrist, Pope Francis is the False Prophet.. do not be decieved.. the Bible is true!! ✝ J E S U S 🛐 #God #Christ #Jesus #christian #christianity #HolySpirit #scripture #truth #sin #repentance #Jesussaves #salvation #churchmemes #amen #Yaweh #praise #spiritualwarfare #family #spiritual #JesusChrist #christianquotes #reformedtheology #christianmemes #memes #blesseds #goodnews #Godisgood #REPENTWHILEYOUSTILLCAN #HELLISREAL #JesusIsTheOnlyWAY 🛐 S A V E S ✝

1 Corinthians 15:9–10 (ESV): 9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.

Kematian begitu mengerikan bukan? Setiap orang pasti akan mati. Kematian jasmani, tidak dapat dihindarkan. Tetapi kematian rohani akan bisa kita hindarkan, jika kita hidup, ada orang yang masih menegur kita, keluarga, saudara seiman, pemimpin rohani, atau Firman Tuhan menegur kita, atau kejadian dalam kehidupan yang menegur kita. Latar belakang teguran adalah kasih. Yesus menegur karena kasih. Wahyu 3:19 (TB) Barangsiapa Kukasihi, ia Kutegor dan Kuhajar; sebab itu relakanlah hatimu dan bertobatlah! Mengasihi bukan hanya membahagiakan atau memberi sesuatu. Ironisnya, banyak orang yang ngakunya Kristen, tetapi menjadi begitu tersinggung ketika ditegur. Padahal untuk kebaikannya sendiri. Apa yang terjadi kepada orang yang tidak mau ditegur? Amsal 12:1B (TB) tetapi siapa membenci teguran, adalah dungu. Amsal 10:17B (TB) tetapi siapa mengabaikan teguran, tersesat. Amsal 15:10B (TB) dan siapa benci kepada teguran akan mati. Mari menjadi Kristen sejati yang lembut hatinya, mau dikoreksi dan ditegur. #christian #christianity #kekristenan #kristen #quotes #learn #bible #renungan #alkitab #holybible #jesus #yesus #youth #youthkristen #firmantuhan #tuhan #god #anakmudakristen #kebenaran #kristus #agama #lessonoflife #lesson #wayoflife #kristenmaksimal #kristensejati

E=mc2. Everything in universe is the made of the same energy. Experience is different. You are free to call it what you want. Can a person who is BLIND, DEAF, DUMB, ILLITERATE exist; experience #God, #spirituality? Yes, that to me is God. So if you got God in #Allah, #Jesus or #Shiva Good. No human is same, not all human will know God in the same way. Ask a fish which air, it will say WATER. Ask a bird which is land, it will say AIR. Ask a tree what is oxygen, it will say CO2. You Say Shiva, they say Jesus, Some say Mumbojumbo. There is something in us that wants to be boundless. You just need an expression to make your self boundless. It can be Logic, God, Spirituality, Jesus, Heaven, Success, Detachment, Honesty, Career, Family or none of the above or all of the above or some of the above. You can have your own way but is it making you boundless is the POINT. If we don't agree, Atleast agree to disagee but don't say your reason is RIGHT.

Meet Julie N.! - Julie is 61 years young and has lived in California all her life. Her maternal grandmother Julianna, after whom she was named, was the first person to introduce her to the local Calvary Christian Church and the Christian faith. The Lord called Julianna home when Julie was only ten years old, but her strength and her unshakeable faith have been carried on by Julie. - Julie accepted the Lord as her Savior the year following her grandmother’s death at a church summer camp. Over the years, her faith has been greatly tested due to the unspeakable trauma she suffered through as a young adult.  For decades she lived in shamed silence because of rape and sexual assault, but recently found the courage through prayer to seek out therapy for the PTSD, flashbacks and anxiety caused by it. Through it all, God graced her with a wonderful husband of 43 years, two grown children, and three glorious grandchildren. She wants to use her newfound courage here at Heaven & Heels to reach out to other women who have similar experiences and let them know they are not alone - that someone understands and that God loves them and can help them out of the pain caused by the experiences. - Julie will be writing about her experiences, as well as health and wellness, mental health, and faith. - Favorite book in the Bible: Ecclesiastes.  It’s wisdom of the human experience by keeping God first and trusting in HIM. - Fave Bible verse: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 - “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens..." (shortened for the sake of Insta's character limit.) The woman of the Bible with whom she most identifies: Esther, because she basically always put others before herself.  Julie says, “I have been doing this my whole life so I relate very well with her.” - You can find her being fabulous on Instagram: @instaglamma3 . . . . #christianblog #christianwriter #christian #christianmentalhealth #womensministry #christianwomen #womenintheword #womenoffaith #christianministry #biblestudy #faith #jesus #christianity #mentalhealth #womenshealth #heavenandheels - #regrann

There are so many things in this life we wish God would change. We ask and ask. He doesn’t always do what we ask when we ask, right? Maybe God doesn’t change our hard circumstances because He wants to give those hard circumstances time to change you? God is always in the process of finishing what He started in us. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6) The older I get, the more I am convinced that God isn’t done until I am redone, changed from the inside out, for the better. That process isn’t always pleasant while we transform, but the change in us is always worth it. at Montego Bay, Jamaica

In 2014, Steve Bannon – then executive chairman of the “alt-right” news network Breitbart – was Christopher Wylie’s boss. And Robert Mercer, the secretive US hedge-fund billionaire and Republican donor, was Cambridge Analytica’s investor. And the idea they bought into was to bring big data and social media to an established military methodology – “information operations” – then turn it on the US electorate. Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, SCL, had won contracts with the US State Department and was pitching to the Pentagon, and Wylie was genuinely freaked out. - It’s insane, he told me one night. - The company has created psychological profiles of 230 million Americans. And now they want to work with the Pentagon? It’s like Nixon on steroids.

The other day I came across this verse and it reminded me of God’s promises. • • • If I only knew the gifts God had in store for me, I wouldn’t be asking for the things I desire. What God has planned is so much better than I could ever imagine, but I don’t know what that may be yet. • • • The Lord offers us living water, a true love that will satisfy the longing in our hearts. But it may take awhile for us to experience that living water. • • • I’m learning to be patient with the Lord as He slowly reveals to me all that He wants for me and my life. • • • How can you be patient with God and wait for His gifts this week? • • • #christianblogger #college #collegegirls #faith #strength #bestrong #stronggirls #samegirlsame #christian #love #hope #collegelife #godislove #christianity #protestant #episcopal #methodist #lutheran #presbyterian #peace #joy

Beware of false doctrines and false prophets, they increase in numbers daily. Meditation is not a way to God. “ Higher Consciousness” is not a way to God.

According to the Times, Cambridge Analytica bought the data from Aleksandr Kogan, a Russian-American academic. Kogan, who told Facebook he was conducting academic research, built a Facebook personality quiz app called "thisisyourdigitalife." When users downloaded the app, it scraped all of their available Facebook data, including their friends, their likes and where they lived. More than a quarter-million Facebook users downloaded the app, which also exploited a Facebook vulnerability that allowed it to to collect most of the same data from the friends of those who downloaded it. By prying into the friends lists of those who made the download, Kogan was able to get data from more than 50 million people. Throughout 2015 and into 2016, the Cruz campaign paid Cambridge Analytica almost $6 million for data that the campaign used for what it called "psychographic targeting," which supposedly allowed the campaign to tailor its message to specific voters in places like Iowa and New Hampshire, where single voters can make a big difference. Using data from the firm, the campaign built profiles of potential voters, prioritizing those who fit in categories such as "stoic traditionalist" and "true believer". . In December 2015, the same month The Guardian revealed Cambridge Analytica and Kogan's data harvesting practices, Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler called the company a "market leader and the best in the field." Despite Tyler's claim that the Cruz campaign stopped using the firm's data in early 2016, it kept paying Cambridge Analytic until June of that year, a month after Cruz suspended his campaign. After Cruz dropped out of the race, the firm began working with Trump, supporting him through November's general election against Hillary Clinton.

The people of God—some in prison cells, some hidden in solitary retreats in the forests and the mountains—still plead for divine protection, while in every quarter companies of armed men, urged on by hosts of evil angels, are preparing for the work of death. It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity, that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen. Saith the Lord; “Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth ... to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the Mighty One of Israel. And the Lord shall cause His glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of His arm, with the indignation of His anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.” Isaiah 30:29, 30.

This post triggered a WHOLE mood for me. Current day Marissa wants to cross off the last two sentences before reposting but that wouldn’t do my heart’s message justice so happy reading...here this is: The LORD commands us to love those who persecute us. LOVE THEM. Not just forgive them... but to go a step further and LOVE THEM. (Matthew 5) 💌 Most of the time we know in our heads that “clapping back” won’t bring a resolution... still our hearts don’t quite agree. So what happens? Emotions get the best of us and a toxic cycle continues. I’ve been that woman before. 💌 I’ve also been the woman who is completely unraveled, broken, at the end of myself. That’s when everything changed. My internal monologue sounded something like “I tried everything my way, Lord, and this sucks.... I feel like I’m being attacked and I don’t deserve this. I wanna try your way but what does that even look like? How do I pray for someone who is intentionally trying to hurt me? What do I pray? Do I still pray it if I don’t FEEL that way right now? Quite frankly they could get smacked by a bus today and I’d still sleep like an angel tonight.” (at least that’s how I felt). 💌 Love your enemy. The task just soundssss daunting.. until we remember we’re not doing it alone. Pray even when you don’t know what to pray. Speak their name out loud to the Lord. 🗣🗣🗣 Ladies (and gents) this is an invitation to show God you neeeeed His strength and you’re depending on Him (aka having faith)!!! 💌 Weeks may pass by and your “enemy” is still antagonizing you. Months go by where your “enemy” shows no sign of remorse. Meanwhile, the conversations you’ve been having with the good Lord baby Jesus have been TRANSFORMING your heart. One day you realize you no longer consider your enemy an “enemy”. Their actions don’t effect your emotions and you genuinely hope they have a life of abundance. You love them! Your faith is firm and your relationship with God is more prevalent than ever before. Oh... I’m sorry did you say you wanted a cherry on top? God heard every one of your prayers and is working on them in the background even IF you never see the fruit of it. 💌 DM me if I can pray for/with you! 😄💖
