PRAY with me:

God, I give you all #thanks and #praise for having brought me through me the year so far. For the rest of the year, continue to pour out Your #blessings upon me in even greater measure. #Bless my #home, my #work, my business, and my #family.

I lean on your promises. You will make me the head and not the tail, I will be above and not beneath. Even as others face #recession and #financial crises, Lord, I remain confident that You are my provider, you will never let your #child go without.

Open new doors, and new #opportunities for me. Open my eyes that I may use these opportunities to bring #glory to Your name. May I always remain humble and willing to #serve and bless others.

Lord, You know the plans You have for me and I know that they are plans to prosper and not harm me. I trust in You Lord with all my  #heart. I will not depend on my own understanding but rather on Your mighty word.

I ❤️ you!

In Jesus’ name I pray...

Every good and #perfect #gift is a #blessing from You and You have #blessed me with so much and I ask that You would use me to be a blessing to others who are in need or facing difficulties.
Make me a channel of Your blessing – a channel through who You love and #peace and #joy and #love flow out from You through me to others. May I be Your hands to bless others – may You #guide my feet to places where I can go and be a blessing… May my speech be #seasoned with #salt so that I may #speak #words of #comfort and #encouragement – and speak the truth in love, and give me the #grace to be available when others are in need.
Lord that You may increase in my life and I may decrease – so that the blessings that You pour through me to others may draw each one closer into the #arms of the Lord Jesus.

I ❤️ you!

In Jesus’ name I pray...

Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and #body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you to release #anger and be more forgiving.

With so much #power to #heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and #emotional health. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.

Laughter is good for your health

Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, #hearty laugh relieves #physical #tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.

Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases #stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.

Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

#Laughter protects the #heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

Laughter lightens anger’s heavy load. Nothing diffuses #anger and conflict faster than a shared laugh. Looking at the #funny side can put problems into perspective and enable you to move on from confrontations without holding onto bitterness or resentment.

Laughter may even help you to live longer. A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don't laugh as much. The difference was particularly notable for those battling cancer.

Laugh with me 😂😂😂 I ❤️ you!

This means providing #spiritual #leadership for the #home and initiating regular and intentional spiritual #connection with your bride. While it #sounds intimidating, it can be done.
Jesus #cleanses and #washes His Bride through the Word. As you begin your #journey to enhance your marriage through prayer, resolve to use the #Bible as the guide and template for the content, topics and flow. As you begin to allow God's #Word to pour over and through your spouse you will begin to see "spots and wrinkles" removed from your marriage.

The Bible says, "for the joy set before him he endured the cross." Jesus was purely #motivated by love and the joy of winning eternal life for the Church. As you begin to pray for your wife, let your #love for her motivate your words and thoughts and let God's love for her #transform them into prayer.

Just like Jesus #Christ gave Himself up for His Bride, #husbands are called to do the same. This means sacrificing your time and sometimes even your pride to meet the needs of your wife. A self-less attitude will break open your #prayer #life and allow you to act as the high priest of your home.

According to Ephesians, Christ's purpose and duty to the Church is to sanctify and cleanse. Understanding this as the core purpose will help enhance how you pray for your spouse. It will also help you withstand any attack of the accuser, because you know why you're doing it. There's no shame in men  #speaking to God on behalf of their wife and family. As you #pray for and with your wife, the effects will trickle down to impact the entire #spiritual condition of your home.

Men, your spouse or future spouse needs your prayers!

I ❤️ you!

I come before You, #Father, because I #desire a #christian husband. I petition that your will be done in my #life and theirs, and I enter into that #blessed rest by adhering to, #trusting in, and relying on You.

Father, You desire that we live a life free from #care, that we should be content and satisfied in every situation that we are in, and that we should not be #anxious or worried about anything. You have said that if we are willing and #obedient to Your #Word, You will give us the desires our heart. It is my desire that someday I will be married to the #person You have chosen for me.

Father, especially help him grow in love, Your #kind of love. A friend loves at all times, and I desire for my husband to be my very best friend. I desire that my husband be a person who shares the same love that I have for You, someone who will be one in #spirit and #purpose with me.

I ask You to send a mature #man into my life to give me good, Godly #counsel and to #teach me how we should love each other and care for our family. Teach us both what You expect #husbands and wives to do and how we ought to behave toward each other. Reveal to our hearts Your Word concerning the marriage relationship and correct any wrong thinking in our lives. Grant us knowledge through #Godly people, #books, recordings, and #preaching that will give us understanding concerning #relationships, so that we can avoid damaging the #relationship You desire for us.

I ❤ you!

Those who feel lonely are often found in some of the most #populated places, such as a crowded college or a busy city.

Why need we never feel lonely? Simply put, because we are never alone. We are always in the presence of God. Sometimes the cause of #loneliness is inability to relate to those we're with. But how could we fail to relate to our loving, divine Father? Out of the depths of loneliness we can turn to Him for #friendship, #comfort, and #strength.

When someone offers appreciation for an article or talk, it reminds me that what I’m doing is meaningful. Hearing that I’ve affected someone in some small way adds meaning to my life. It feels good to get the message that I’ve affected someone in a positive way.

Being appreciated is a way to feel that we’re important to others; we make a difference in their lives. We are valued — or even cherished. It is validating and meaningful to hear that what we’ve done something thing good or that who we are is appreciated.

Today, make sure you let someone know they’re appreciated!

I ❤️ you!

We can find many examples in the Old Testament scriptures that prove how important relationships are to God. For example, when God called Abraham (Genesis 12:2), he told him, “I will make you into a great nation.” God wasn’t content to establish a relationship with just one man. His purpose was to create a people – made up of families, clans, and tribes. God chose to bring redemption into the world through human relationships.

Another point of data from the Old Testament is the special care God shows toward people who are alone in the world. In particular, God’s heart is for widows and orphans. These are people who are the vulnerable and most subject to oppression and neglect, because they lack people who can provide a structure of support. So God told Israel in Isaiah 1:17, “Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.” And Psalm 68:6 says, “God sets the lonely in families…” Relationships are more important to God than your religion!

I ❤️ you!

Say “AMEN” with me on that one!

God, I want a relationship with you. I realize that my selfishness and sin have gotten in the way because deep down, I just want to live life my own way. But, I’m tired and I’ve come to the end of myself. And I now realize that what’s been missing from my life is you. And you are so amazing because you knew I didn’t need more rules or more education or a chance to be better. I needed a Savior. Thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, to be my Savior. I believe he lived, died, and rose from the grave to forgive my sins, conquer death, and give me new life and hope. I place my trust in him and thank you for not giving up on me. I’m excited about growing in this new relationship with you. I know it won’t always be easy. I know you’ll continue to change me, and I’m going to trust in you. God, thank you for your amazing grace.

Instead of being stuck in paralysis of deliberation, we can take the next step forward. We begin to recognize that what is on this earth is fleeting. We don’t have to fret in indecision, futilely trying to interpret God’s will as if it were a complex puzzle. When we have the choice between good options concerning careers, jobs, places to live, and the like, we can decide confidently knowing that God wants our holiness regardless of our context.

We don’t know what the future will hold, but we know that he is good and will bring what he began to completion. If we pursue holiness first, wherever we may end up will be of some importance, yet ultimately trivial.

Before every big decision, surrender to God and pursue holiness.
Trust the Lord and his promises to make your paths straight.

I ❤️ you!

God also has the power to close doors of opportunity, relationship and circumstances.  Closed doors can be bit more challenging emotionally.  When an opportunity you thought was going to come through becomes unavailable, you may question God’s goodness or foreknowledge.  Or when a relationship ends or comes to a screeching halt, you may feel discouraged, hurt and frustrated.
It’s of uttermost importance in our walks with the Lord that we exercise spiritual discernment to know if a door has been truly closed by God or if we are just facing adversity in walking through a door.  In fact, there are times in which a door seems closed, but the reality is that we have obstacles before us that hinder our entrance into that door.  When we discern that a door is not closed, but that we face resistance, of human or demonic nature, it is not time to give up, but to persist in prayer and action.
As you seek to do God’s will and follow His path, be sensitive to the doors that God opens.  Our lives are not dictated by our circumstances, but we understand and believe that God is in control and sovereign.  Therefore, our circumstances may indicate God's will for our lives.  We need to discern the source of the doors that open up to us and courageously accept the welcome of God into new destinies.  If today, all doors of opportunity seem closed, you can remain faithful in your devotion to God knowing that He has promised to open doors to those who ask persistently.

Say this prayer with me: "Lord, I invite you to open up new doors of opportunity to do Your will.  Give me the discernment to know when an opportunity is of Your making and when it is not.  Teach me to do Your will for you are my God and Your Spirit is good.
I ❤️ you!

Pray for your partner!

As leaders, and lovers, men should protect and advocate in #prayer on the behalf of their wife. It is our duty and privilege to partner with #God and the Holy Spirit for the well-being of our #wife who will lead us to greatness!

Lord, show me how to be her peace over her fears and anxieties.

Lord, I pray that nothing will ever cause my future wife to be fearful or terrified in my presence. I #pray that You will guide me so that she will never lose control of her emotions or fall into #fear out of anxiety or #stress. I pray that my future wife understands my calling, will always remain strong in her #faith so that it will stand as a hedge against any unnecessary fears as the #enemy attempts to divide us. Help me guide her beautiful mind to #discernment that cuts through all noise so she won’t be dismantled or misguided from lack of direction.
I pray that in all situations my future wife will act out of inspiration from the Holy Spirit and not of her flesh. Lord, help me provide to the best of my abilities a safe environment for her, #help me become the man I am supposed to be in order to be an amazing #husband she’s been praying for.
Lord, I pray for the heart of my future wife that she will always feel loved by me. Help me understand her past fears so I can love her the way she needs and wants to be loved anytime and anywhere 🤐😍. Help me become a man that #loves her like #Christ loved the #church. I pray that my future wife always feels loved by You. That she never forgets what You did for her. I pray that the reality that You are coming back is enough to #motivate her to #pursue a #relationship with You and fall even more deeply in love with You. Lord, I pray that love abounds in her so she can permeate love and freely give it away because she is constantly filled up with it because of the #love both You and I have given her.

Lord, through all this, help me to become more emotionally #intimate with my future #wife so that your blessing of sex is dessert and not the main course.

However, please allow us to still get it in at 90 🤔😂💁🏿‍♂️. I ❤️ you!

We are driven day by day by our emotions. We take chances because we’re excited for new prospects. We cry because we’ve been hurt and we make sacrifices because we love. Without a doubt, our emotions dictate our thoughts, intentions and actions with superior authority to our rational minds. But when we act on our emotions too quickly, or we act on the wrong kinds of emotions, we often make decisions that we later lament.

Our feelings can alter between dangerous extremes. Veer too far to the left and you’re bordering on rage. Steer too much to the right and you’re in a state of euphoria. As with many other aspects of life, emotions are best met with a sense of moderation and logical perspective. This is not to say that we should stop ourselves from falling in love or jumping for joy after great news. These truly are the finer things in life. It is negative emotions that must be handled with extreme care.

I ♥️ you!

One of the most difficult things for human beings to do is to change.
That’s not to say that people don’t want to #change. Just look around. How many #people do you know who are dissatisfied with something in their lives? How many people do you know want to change things like their #weight, their hair #color, their  #jobs?

Even beyond those types of things, how many people do you know who want to change something substantive in their #lives, like developing a better #attitude or spending more #quality #time with their #loved ones?

Even with the best of intentions, change eludes us. That’s because when it comes to #true, #positive, lasting change, the only real path forward is #God and His #purpose for our lives.

Here’s the amazing part, though: If you’re #reading and #understanding this, God is inviting you to change your life in incredible ways!

The first step toward meaningful change in #life is this: We must walk circumspectly. Paul writes in Ephesians 5:15, “See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.” Or, to paraphrase: “Don’t meander. Don’t just drift around. Don’t aimlessly walk through life.” He says we have to #walk with purpose. “Circumspectly” isn’t a word we use often, so it can be hard to grasp what Paul was saying. The Greek word here is an #accounting term referring to precision and careful #counting. It’s all about making sure that we walk—we live —with precise and calculated movements.
Walking is something commonly done every day. It’s a metaphor here, as throughout Scripture, for our manner of life— how we live. Considering the #analogy, let’s switch our perspective a bit. Have you ever tried walking or moving about in the dark? It’s not easy, is it? There are pitfalls and #dangers when you can’t see where you’re going.

Now think about the #world we live in today in spiritual terms. This is a dark world. Paul is warning us here that we can’t walk aimlessly in this dark world. We have to pay attention and stay focused on what we’re doing!

Conclusion: If it’s a challenge for people to change for God, why do you expect him to change for you so swiftly? Start walking in purpose and being more confident in who you are!

A friend of mine sent me this: "I think of a friend of mine who never knew her father; he abandoned her before she was born. Others have fathers who simply neglected them and still others have fathers who abused them. If that is true for you, your concept of a father is likely warped. But let me assure you that God is your heavenly Father, if you are born again, and he is perfect. Don’t transfer your negative experience with your earthly father to God, because you will then miss the joy of fellowshipping with him as Father, Abba, Papa.
I had a wonderful earthly father who never neglected me or mistreated me, but even he could not promise to never leave me. A stroke took him from us several years ago. But my heavenly Father can say, "I never leave you or forsake you," and have full assurance that he will always be with me. He will not let me go, and the same is true for you, if you are his child." If you have someone who loves you, give them a hug today!

As you can see by yesterday’s post, we got a win!

Now, it’s time for you to create even more wins by bringing more people to Christ because it allows heaven to rejoice even more!

First, reflect on the following questions:

How do people in your church respond when a sinner walks the aisle to repent and commit his or her life to Jesus Christ? Is it a time of real rejoicing or just another part of the program?

How long has it been since you took time to deeply ponder the miracle of your salvation? Why don’t you consecrate a few minutes of your time to do it today?

Let your imagination soar as you consider what it may be like in heaven when it’s announced that a sinner has repented.

I ❤️ you!

Despite the degrees, awards, and other opportunities I’ve been blessed with, at an early age, I’ve now reached a major pinnacle in my life.

Of course I have brothers, but now my only biological brother has made it known to the public that he’s now a disciple of Christ and is a new creature.

I’m usually good with my words, but I’m speechless!

First, reflecting on my past, in the eyes of man, I should have never been a pastor. Second, although I desire to give my younger brother all I have, I never would have thought I’d have the opportunity to baptize him in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

For those who are praying for a loved one to be saved and open their eyes and heart to God, take my experience as a point of reference that there’s still hope!

Just keep being a positive influence.

In addition, thank you for the family who supported my parents and I in this experience.

On the fence about baptism? Hit me up!

I love you!

Even if I fail today and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, Lord. Thank You for meeting with me today. Would You wake me again tomorrow with the same sweet whisper of Your love? I can't wait to meet with You again.
I ❤️ you!

When I think about my role as a chaplain, I’m constantly connecting with people who may not know that they’re going to be alive the next day. Despite this, many still smile. They still smile because they know that they have greater mansions in heaven. The mansions in heaven are greater than anything that they’ve ever seen on earth. You too can see those mansions! So, I come to you this morning asking you that you smile today, and allow the enemy to know that no matter what you’re going through, that you’re still going to stand firm on God’s promises.

As #powerful as your eyeballs are, they have one significant limitation. Every eye has a fatal flaw. Your eyes can only see physical reality. Every eye is limited to seeing physical things: cars, people, buildings, planes, dogs, grass, pollution, microbes, trees, books, computers. These things are all physical, and they are the only part of reality accessible to our eyes. Our #eyeballs are completely useless when it comes to perceiving spiritual reality. The spiritual side of life is just as real as the physical side; we just can’t see it. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the spiritual is less real than the physical. It’s not. It’s just as real, only we can’t see it. But it’s there and as real as eyeballs in your head.

#Spiritual #eyes are eyes that hope in Christ. The fight to see is a fight to believe. We need to help each other see. So I ask, “Do your spiritual eyes have 20/20 vision? Can you see Him?

If not, I #challenge you to say this prayer:

Lord, if you don’t open the eyes of my heart, I will not see You and cannot hope in You. If You don’t shine the light of Your #glory into the #dark corners of my heart, I will remain blind and stumble about. Please open my eyes that I might see Your glory. May Your #beauty outshine every other thing that promises satisfaction. May I, like the psalmist, see You by faith and thus gain an eternal perspective on reality. Then out of the abundance of that vision, may I be unable to stop #pointing those around me to You so that they too might see and believe. I ask this because I believe that it will glorify You to a world full of people who hear, but cannot hear, who look, but do not “see.” I ❤️ you!

In Jesus’ name I pray…

You’re so much more than being someone’s “side-chick” or the “other woman.” You should never be someone’s second choice. If they can’t give you their 100 percent, then why should you give them all of you. They clearly have someone else who they put first, and coming in second to someone else gets old — really quick. You deserve someone who gives you their everything, and always puts you first, you deserve to be their first choice.

You deserve to be more than the friend who is getting walked all over on. If you feel like you’re constantly the friend who’s getting calls to pick up your drunk friends at a bar, or the one who’s always listening to everyone else’s problem, but when you need someone, suddenly everyone is too busy? Friendship is a two-way streak, and you deserve better friends, people who will be there for you, not just the other way around.

You deserve to be paid for all the hard work that you do at your job. In your career if you feel like you aren’t getting the compensation as someone doing the same job as you, or that you think you should be getting paid more, well, it’s about time you said something. You deserve to be valued and paid for the effort and time you put into your job.

Don’t let anyone or anything make you feel inferior. You deserve more, and sometimes those three words are all you need to get yourself out a situation that doesn’t value or appreciate you.
Love, you deserve more. You deserve God!

I ❤️ you!

She wrote this letter to her ex-boyfriend: “I can admit that you’ve done so many positive things in my life. You’ve given me confidence I’ve never had, helped me #financially, and told me everything I wanted to hear. Even with all of that, I know you don’t love me anymore. I see it in your eyes. I see the way you look at her, and you #smile and #laugh differently now. You know we shouldn’t be sleeping together behind her back, and it’s #hurting me inside to see you with her basically every day. You told me she meant nothing to you, but your actions tell me differently. You have to love me! You said I’d be so #perfect for you if I lost some weight, and I did! I looked at her and she’s nothing compared to me now. But you still choose her? Your words sort of mean nothing to me anymore. I wish I could make you #happy like she does. Can you at least tell me what I did wrong? What did I do to make you so disgusted with me? Am I that #easy to forget? I wish you didn’t promise me what you did, now I feel broken again.” My love, in spite of how you #feel you’ve been wronged, lied to, cheated on, and verbally abused as the woman who wrote the letter, I need you to #speak positivity into existence. Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouth, but only if it’s for building someone up to be better than they expected. Doing this may be the grace they’ve been seeking to inspire them to change.

When people start to love themselves more each day, it’s amazing how their lives get better. They feel better. They get the jobs they want. They have the money they need. Their relationships either improve, or the negative ones dissolve and new ones begin.

It’s a very simple premise. Love yourself. I’ve been criticized for being too simplistic, and I have found that the simple things are usually the most profound.

Someone said to me recently, “You gave me the most #wonderful gift—you gave me the gift of myself.” So many of us hide from ourselves and we don’t even know who we are. We don’t #know what we feel, we don’t know what we want.

Life is a voyage of self discovery. To me, to be #enlightened is to go within and to know who and what we really are, and to know that we have the ability to #change for the better by #loving and taking care of ourselves.

It’s not #selfish to love ourselves. It clears us so that we can love ourselves enough to #love other people. We can really help or #relationships when we come from a space of great love and #joy on an #individual basis, instead of selfishness, #insecurities, and #ugly ways.

Thanks @aforetasteofheaven for another great one.

God hears everything, including prayers. He is God. Nothing gets by Him (Psalm 139:1–4). He is sovereign over everything He created (Isaiah 46:9–11). So the question is not whether God is aware of every prayer (He is), but whether God is tuning in to our #prayers with an intent to answer them. God ... God hears everything, including prayers. He is God. Nothing gets by Him (Psalm 139:1–4). He is sovereign over everything He created (Isaiah 46:9–11). So the question is not whether God is aware of every prayer (He is), but whether God is tuning in to our #prayers with an intent to answer them.

God wants us to pray. He has created prayer as a means by which we can enjoy Him (Revelation 3:20), #confess our sin (1 John 1:9), ask Him to meet our needs (Psalm 50:15), and align our wills with His (Jeremiah 29:11–12; Luke 22:42). One kind of prayer is guaranteed to be granted. Luke 18:13–14 describes the prayer of repentance. When we call upon the Lord in humble repentance, He is eager to justify and forgive us.

However, when considering prayer, it is important to remember that most promises of God in Scripture were written to His people. In the Old Testament, those #promises were for Israel and all who united with them. In the New Testament, those promises were written to the followers of Jesus. It is a misuse of Scripture to pull out isolated verses and try to apply them to any situation we want, including prayer. Even though the #Lord knows and hears all, He has given some circumstances in which He will not listen to our prayers:

1. When we are choosing to hold on to sin, rather than repent and change, God will not hear our prayers. In Isaiah 1:15, the Lord says, “When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood!” Proverbs 28:9 says, “If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable.”
Example: A young couple are living together in sexual sin, yet they pray for God’s blessing on their home.

2. When we ask according to our own selfish desires, #God will not hear our prayers. James 4:3 says, “When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”
Example: A man is dissatisfied with his three-year-old #Toyota, so he #prays for a brand-new Mercedes.

I ❤️ you!

When we know and #believe that #God is determined to #love us no matter what, we can #stop being so concerned about our #faults and #conform to #Christ instead of our #fears.

When we don’t believe that God #loves us no matter what, we try to put on masks that make us look #perfect in order to hide our faults. When we try to hide behind #masks, we undermine God’s plan that we live together in a #transparent, #loving world.

The reality is, God’s love is perfect, and he wants to cover our faults with #Jesus #Christ. God goes beyond merely diagnosing our #problems or #judging our faults.

The more we’re conscious of God’s love, the less self-conscious we become about ourselves. We spend less #time and #energy looking to appear perfect and have a life where everything is exactly the way we want it to be; instead, we #invest more time and energy pouring ourselves into other people, who, along with us, make an imperfect world, but one infused with God’s love.

Remember that God knows your #past and still loves you, and so should those around you.

Men, if you desire to be the best man you can be for your future wife, pray this with me:

Lord,
You know I’m not married yet, but I know You know her last name that she will let go, her style and the types of curves she possesses, how she will act to me and others, her humble personality, her past and future flaws that I will accept and help her grow from, and You’re saving me for every inch of her mind, heart, and body.
I know she won’t be perfect, but I don’t expect her to be. I need her to be willing. But I also know that You’re molding me into the type of man that my future wife desires in every way, and needs.

I ask that You build in me the type of characteristics that will support my wife and her ambitions and dreams that You have given her. I need her dreams to be my dreams as I push her to her breaking-point of being the strong, purposeful woman You desire her to be as she inspires other women to do the same.

Help me to learn how to come alongside of her with a servants heart and with wisdom, and how to be her biggest cheerleader. No one should be as invested in her as I am because we are as one in the same and her successes are my triumphs.

I want to encourage, bless, serve, and love my future wife in all matters. Please prepare me and equip me for this task while I am not yet married. Show me what to say at the right times to make her blush. Show me how I should look into her eyes and tell her I love her to the point she’s in such a daze about my aura throughout her days.
Help me to continually be the man who pleases every inch of her body, which is perfectly created to feel sensation through millions of nerve endings. Help me to find new ways daily to heighten her pleasure so that she feels consumed with my love, but focused enough to do Your work.

I ❤️ you!

Involved fathers – especially biological fathers – bring positive benefits to their children that no other person is as likely to bring. They provide protection and economic support and male role models. They have a parenting style that is significantly different from that of a mother and that difference is important in healthy child development.

One of the most vital aspects of a dad's contribution to the lives of his kids lies precisely in a significantly different parenting style. Men and women are different. As a result mothers and fathers parent their children differently.

Dads, for instance, love their children "more dangerously." That's because they play "rougher" and are more likely to encourage risk-taking. They provide kids with a broader diversity of social experiences. They also introduce them to a wider variety of methods of dealing with life. They tend to stress rules, justice, fairness, and duty in discipline. In this way, they teach children the objectivity and consequences of right and wrong. They give kids insight into the world of men. They prepare them for the challenges of life and demonstrate by example the meaning of respect between the sexes. In connection with this last point, research indicates that a married father is substantially less likely to abuse his wife or children than men in any other category.

Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the United States – that’s 43.8 million people – experience a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. For almost 10 million people, the condition is serious enough to affect their ability to function day to day. Children are not exempt: About 1 in 5 youth ages 13-18 experiences a severe mental disorder. Half of the 20.2 million adults who have experienced a substance abuse disorder had a mental illness at the same time. Significant percentages of America’s homeless, prisoners, and youth in juvenile justice systems live with serious or severe mental illness.
Despite the growing prevalence of people with mental health issues, only 44 percent of adults and less than 20 percent of children and adolescents with diagnosable mental health problems receive needed treatment.

These statistics clearly show the importance of mental health awareness and counseling and I’m proud to join ana amazing organization and founder in @whealthwithin to do so.

Come enjoy the FREE event with me in Roselle, NJ this Saturday and the founder of @ripthestigma.

If you are a single woman and are looking for a godly man to date and possibly marry, what should you look for? How do you measure a godly man’s character?

If you are a man who desires to faithfully follow God, what aspects of your character should you work to develop?

Let’s look at two basic character traits of a godly man. One, Whom does he follow? Second, is he humble?

WHOM DOES HE FOLLOW?

An important consideration is to look at those who have influenced his life. Is Jesus Christ the primary influencer in his life? A godly man will make it his highest priority to follow the example of Christ (John 10:27; 1 Corinthians 11:1). Whether he does so will become evident as you observe his daily conduct. No matter his cultural background, his level of education or his depth of experiences—if he follows Jesus Christ first, you will recognize it.
What about the people who have influenced him? This may include his father or grandfather, a mentor at school or work or even his buddies. Any of those influences can be positive or negative. But once you understand who those influences are, evaluate the character of these people and how they have rubbed off on him. The apostle Paul wrote, “Evil company corrupts good habits” (1 Corinthians 15:33). IS HE HUMBLE?

Sometimes, humility is (incorrectly) viewed as a mind-set of weakness and self-loathing. But that is neither a biblical nor a healthy frame of mind. True humility is a strength, not a weakness (Philippians 2:3-4). Proper humility is an important element in the heart of a man who will build and nurture strong and positive relationships. It means he’s willing to listen and not arrogantly step on the feelings of others. Peter admonishes us to “be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble’” (1 Peter 5:5). You see, a humble man will be a good husband because he will forgive more easily, will be more patient and will work toward being a peacemaker.

The first step to becoming a man is to follow God.

I ❤️ you!

I remember when I was seven years old and my mother told me that she was pregnant. Immediately I started praying every night that it would be a boy. I started praying that He will guide me so then I could be the best big brother possible. I prayed that my brother would look up to me somewhat like a father. I prayed that God would guide me to be better than what I ever imagined to inspire him to reach the highest heights that I possibly couldn’t touch. I prayed that he would be healthy. I prayed that I would have the love for him that her father has for his son.

Thankfully, my prayers were answered.

I was blessed to see him transition all throughout his life as I brought him to school, as I took care of him at home, as I seen him do both good and bad things. I remember being able to go to parent teacher conferences as his parent, so my parents wouldn’t hear all the bad things that he’s done 😂. I remember going to his basketball games, angry when the coach was hatin’ on him and wouldn’t let him play even tho he was the better balla’ 😡. I remember pleading with my parents to let me speak with him instead of them spanking him. I remember holding him tightly in hopes he wouldn’t leave me the way my sister did.

Bro, you went from nothing to building a a successful embroidery business. We went from both being children to saying I love you daily. I don’t know anymore powerful words I can say but I ❤️ you!

Happy Birthday Gab! @chico4real_

Father, You desire that we live a life free from #care, that we should be content and satisfied in every situation that we are in, and that we should not be #anxious or worried about anything. You have said that if we are willing and #obedient to Your #Word, You will give us the desires our heart. It is my desire that someday I will be married to the #person You have chosen for me.

Father, especially help him grow in love, Your #kind of love. A friend loves at all times, and I desire for my husband to be my very best friend. I desire that my husband be a person who shares the same love that I have for You, someone who will be one in #spirit and #purpose with me.

I ask You to send a mature #man into my life to give me good, Godly #counsel and to #teach me how we should love each other and care for our family. Teach us both what You expect #husbands and wives to do and how we ought to behave toward each other. Reveal to our hearts Your Word concerning the marriage relationship and correct any wrong thinking in our lives. Grant us knowledge through #Godly people, #books, recordings, and #preaching that will give us understanding concerning #relationships, so that we can avoid damaging the #relationship You desire for us.

I ❤ you!

She sat on the edge of the bed and a nurse crouched in front of her while the anesthesiologist gave her the shot. She was nervous, but the nurse was reassuring and there was no pain, barely even a pinch. The doctor helped her lie on her back, gave her an oxygen mask to help her breathing, and suggested a nap. She stared at the ceiling, afraid to sleep. The contractions were still there, but they didn't hurt anymore. She also kept going in and out of consciousness. "Oh my, you're ready!" the doctor suddenly exclaimed. “It’s only been fifteen minutes, but... Listen to me! When I say push, I need you to bear down like you're having a big bowel movement and don't let up. Do you understand?" She nodded. Her husband held one of her legs to her chest and she tried to hold the other, but she didn't have the strength. "Hold your leg!" the doctor begged. She just couldn't. So the doctor grabbed one of those busy nurses to hold her leg for her, and she began to push.

She was a champion pusher, the doctor and nurse were looking at each other with big smiles, remarking on how well she was doing. "Harder!" they screamed. "Come on!" She began to moan and cry with frustration. She was putting every bit of energy she had into every push!

The baby crowned after only about 20 minutes, but she didn't feel much relief. She was focused on getting her all the way out. A few more pushes and her head came. They paused while the doctor cleared the mouth and nose. Then suddenly there she was, such a wiggly, God-given creature lying on her tummy. "She's here, my love!" Her husband cried. She nodded, disoriented. They took her away to be looked over and tidied up, as she prayed for her daughter’s health, hardly noticing her doctor sewing up a small tear she suffered.

And then she was in her arms. An amazing, healthy, 8 pound, 7 ounce baby.

If life is a movie, a woman is the best part that can birth wonderful creatures and things.

I thought I was ready to let her go. I mean, after all the arguments, name #calling, #cheating, etc., the time to let go was overdue.

I mean, after all the arguments, name #calling, #cheating, etc., the time to let go was overdue.

But’s it’s difficult to let go of someone you shared your #secrets, #memories, #money, #family, and #body with. That’s why God says to abstain from certain things that are really, really pleasureable to me until after marriage.

I cried and #cried again asking God if it’s time to let her go.

What I learned is that loving someone is usually loud. It's tight #hugs, late night #calls, #laughing candid photos, "I miss you" texts in caps. Learning to love quieter is actually not doing these things that once showed them that you care.

You start with #texting them less. You stop liking their #social media posts or even looking at their feed because it just hurts. You want to be angry. You want to #scream and yell and make them understand how much it all just sucks, but you know deep down it's only because you #care so much. So swallow that anger, it'll pass.

After some time has passed, you reach out. You reach out in small ways, even though you know you don't want things to go back to the way they were. You send random #Facebook messages during important events, maybe even try to be friends again. You want them to be happy. And if they aren't, you want them to know that you are always there for them, even now.
The hardest part, you let other people love them. Even though at one point you could never imagine anyone having what you two had, you realize that due to circumstance, choice, outside events, whatever the reasons...that there are better people to love them. Maybe there aren't, but they chose these people and they're happy. And you accept that now. A part of you will always love them and know how much they've impacted your life, but they'll have significant others and stories you won't be a part of.

You hope the best for them for them in Jesus’ name. You smile when you see a photo of them. You start liking their social media posts again. Maybe, one day you'll meet up for coffee just to catch up.

Or maybe you should just love them enough to let them go... I ❤️ you!

Type “AMEN” if my story resonates with you...

I don't know who or what will cross my path today. But I do know that You are my Rock and my Fortress. You are my Shield and my Strong Tower. Help me to anchor myself to You today. #Teach me how to stand #strong in You and choose only Your way today. Help me #walk by Your #truth and not my feelings. Help me to #embrace anything that comes my way as an opportunity to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others to You. Thank You that You #love me and nothing can ever take that away from me! Even if I fail today and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, #Lord.
Thank You for meeting with me today. Would You wake me again tomorrow with the same sweet whisper of Your love?
I ❤️ you!

I can't wait to meet with You again. In Jesus' name I #pray...

Hugs release oxytocin, the bonding hormone that appears to build trust, reduces fear, and increase compassion and generosity.
Oxytocin is also related to decreased amounts of cortisol, thereby lowering blood pressure.

From my research, eight hugs per day releases an adequate amount of oxytocin to do all these things.

Unlike many other methods for feeling good that focus self-centered behavior, hugging stresses the interaction between the self and others. It is a kind of bonding agent. It feels good to be connected to others. And why not? We are social creatures, after all.

Physical touching extends outward, connecting being touched physically with being touched figuratively. The physical touch becomes the basis for the emotion known as compassion.
I can't hug you right now, but I hope you're touched enough to realize that the touch of God can release all the positive hormones you desire to continue to move forward past any adversity.

If the touch of a virtuous woman can do as stated above, can you imagine the touch of God?

Hugs! 🤗

I ❤️ you!

She was 24, 6’0, had three cats, and lived alone in a small town. She also #suffered from severe #depression and #bipolar disorder. When she was in elementary school and high school, she was bullied a lot because she was different from everyone else. In 10th grade she met her first friend. She felt like he was the first #person to be kind to her, especially a boy. It is also the first year she quit the volleyball #team because she started experiencing high blood pressure and had to start using a heart monitor. Her friend eventually started dating and forgot all about her. From that moment on, she believed that her friend played with her #emotions and refused to ever speak to him again, or develop friendships with anyone else.
You may have experienced situations where you feel like someone you confided, #trusted, and adored, should have done more to be into your life, especially in your time of need. However, you shouldn’t have a grudge against that person. Your walk won’t be perfect but worth it as you grow through challenges you experience. I understand that it tests you to strive to become the #person I #desire you to be, and that change is difficult. But don’t you trust Me to forgive you when you fall through your challenges? If so, you must extend that same forgiveness to others. As you continue to study My Word and continue your Christian walk, ask yourself, “Is there someone I need to forgive?” I ❤️ you!

PRAY with me:

God, I give you all #thanks and #praise for having brought me through me the year so far. For the rest of the year, continue to pour out Your #blessings upon me in even greater measure. #Bless my #home, my #work, my business, and my #family.

I lean on your promises. You will make me the head and not the tail, I will be above and not beneath. Even as others face #recession and #financial crises, Lord, I remain confident that You are my provider, you will never let your #child go without.

Open new doors, and new #opportunities for me. Open my eyes that I may use these opportunities to bring #glory to Your name. May I always remain humble and willing to #serve and bless others.

Lord, You know the plans You have for me and I know that they are plans to prosper and not harm me. I trust in You Lord with all my  #heart. I will not depend on my own understanding but rather on Your mighty word.

I ❤️ you!

In Jesus’ name I pray... #God #family #love #God #relationships
