Repost from @tpatrickwilliams using @RepostRegramApp - As I've been fighting this battle with cancer, I've know that I wanted to do something that everyone could be involved with. We wanted to create a T-Shirt that was cute, but its proceeds would help with research, medication, transportation, or co-payments. Whatever that patient may be in need of, because treating cancer isn't cheap, and going home coping with this disease isn't either. 10% of the proceeds of this shirt will go directly to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. We need to find a way to X out Cancer, and this is our way in lending a helping hand.
Shirts can me purchased at: www.gleauxbathbody.com
Worry or have peace? We must choose between the two.
With thankful hearts
offer up your prayers
and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel. Philippians 4:7 NIV
sadarilah bahwa sesungguhnya Allah tidak membebani seseorang melainkan sesuai dengan kemampuannya..
Allah memberikan kelemahan, kekurangan, ujian, musibah, dan tantangan kepada kita karena mengetahui, bahwa kita mampu memikulnya. Kita mampu melewatinya, dan mampu menjadi manusia yang naik kelas menjadi orang yang lebih baik lagi. .
As I brush my teeth and clean up in this alley in #atlanta on my journey, it's setting in that Christ is all I have. A man named Will approaches me and we talk a bit. Then he asks me what I do and where I'm from, so I say I'm from everywhere man and I'm following Jesus. Then he tells me about his journey here 1 year ago. As we move in closer, he tells me that his girlfriend died from a disease and his brother was shot and killed. Will was shot too but he lived. I recognize the faint anxiety of trauma in his voice so once done giving the Silver and gold that remained, I gave him prayer. As we prayed and my hands were on him, a police car started to pull towards us, so I kept praying and will said, "in JESUS'" name and I smiled realizing that this is the way. It is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives within me. #missionary#urbanmissionary#grace#onemore#silverandgold#prayer#jesus#beallthingstoallmen#followjesus#jesusislord
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.”
When you use your talent, you will have more talent and grow rich.
Jesus is speaking here of genuine riches and not what the Bible describes as filthy lucre or dishonest wealth. (Titus 1: 11; 1 Timothy 3: 3). Examples of spiritual riches are faith, hope and charity. Others are: patience, wisdom, humility, courage, peace and contentment. When you exercise your gifts, they grow and you will become rich in what matters. When you fail to use your talent, they diminish and atrophy and then die.
Cleaning out my desk at home I found this that I wrote a while back.
I can't remember what triggered the writing, but I remember the feeling that I desperately needed God to replace my constant striving, people-pleasing, and fear of failure with the truth of his freedom and grace. I was exhausted by it, because no matter how hard I tried I was always not measuring or keeping up.
So, today isn't considered a good day because we accomplish everything or because people (including ourselves) think we did a good job. Today is good when we see God's grace and redemptive work able to cover all of our mistakes and those shortcomings we are afraid others will find.
Let's hold onto these truths until we believe them, Amen
