super crazy when there's an elephant in the room with you and God and He's sitting there waiting for you to talk to him like 💁🏼♂️ i've been making the habit of making my shower time, talking to God time. it sounds kinda bizarre but that's literally the only time i have alone typically. and when i talked to God about this "elephant in the room" He told me "wait and i'll show you." and that's all i needed to hear. God is great!
what's the big thing God is waiting for you to talk to Him about? go and make time to talk to Him! you don't need an hour, but simply 5 minutes of your day to talk to Him. lately i feel like I've been talking to a brick wall because i haven't gotten ANY response from God. but today He finally spoke to me and it meant so much. talk to Him! He's listening.
The wicked are like the chaff blown by the wind (Psalm 1)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chaff is apart of the wheat that no one needs, it shifts where ever the wind blows. After being separated from the grain, it no longer has value.
To compare, people with the characteristic of chaff flow in whatever direction society lays out for them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Instead of being set apart and uncommon, they are like everyone else: no roots.
Stand firm in Christ, uncompromising with the world, and demonstrating Authentic Christianity. Goodnight 💤🌙

#homwork number 2! After vs. before~
The prompt was to recreate an old piece of work with the skills you have now. It’s also been a while since I’ve lettered in color. -
I’ve since migrated from my watercolors and brush pens to my trusty iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. While my composition still needs work, I think I’ve gotten a little better at the consistency of my down and up strokes and the spacing of my letters 😅 Sometimes I look back and actually think my creativity was way better in the day. -
I still have much to learn only having started lettering about two years ago and iPad lettering a few months ago! -
Lord, I offer You my words this day. May I speak only what You inspire me to speak. May I hear only what You wish for me to hear. Help me, Lord, to enter into a deep and continual recollection of You, and in the silence of my heart may I meet Your divine presence so that I may share You and Your Mercy with others. Jesus, I trust in You.

🔥🔥THE LORD SAID: Not everyone can go with you. Not all relationships are destined to be life-long. Some are seasonal or temporary divine connections. Some are sent to distract or destroy you. .
Be sensitive to leading of the Holy Spirit in this area; commit where you need to, distance yourself where you need to, cut loose where you need to. This too is obedience. For you cannot afford soul ties, drama or trauma, in this hour. Allocate time and attention only to right relationships. #ELEVATION#2K18 .

Lord, give me the strength I need to persevere through any and every difficulty that tries to keep me from my prayer with You. Make me strong so that I can set aside any struggle or temptation that comes my way. And as I press on in this new life of prayer, please take my life and form me into a new creation in Your love and Mercy. Jesus, I trust in You
Our tongue can build others up, or cut them down. Our tongue also has a direct effect upon our own soul. When the tongue speaks words inspired by God, we grow in holiness. When the tongue speaks words not from God, we do great damage to our souls and others. The goal is not so much exterior silence; rather, it’s interior silence. Interior silence means that we think and pray before we speak. It means we are interiorly recollected and in tune with the voice of God speaking silently and gently within our conscience. This interior recollection of God is necessary if we are to dispose ourselves to speak the words of Mercy to others at the right time and in the right way.
Seek, today, to become a person who is continually in tune with the voice of God within your own conscience. God’s language is real and transforming. His language is one of silent but clear communication with us. God is always speaking, are you hearing? Try to silence your own thoughts and ideas today so that you can hear only what He has to say to you.

Marque a pessoa que você ama e leia a legenda❤ Deus sabe exatamente o que faz, porque faz e quando faz. É aquela história que todos nós sabemos e repetimos constantemente: Ele tem um propósito em tudo. Porque orar, então? Se Ele tem tudo planejado, porque eu devo orar? Acontece que a oração não é para mudar a Deus e os planos dEle, mas mudar a mim, o meu coração.
Algo surpreendente acontece em nossos corações quando oramos. E quando passamos a orar por quem amamos a nossa quietude começa a nos penetrar. Tornamo-nos capazes de perdoar e esquecer nossas mágoas. Isso acontece porque orar é um ato de amor. Quando nos aproximamos de Deus através da oração Ele nos envia o Seu Espírito de amor.
Orar é amar. Amar é entregar. Entregar é descansar. Descansar é deitar no colo de Deus e confiar que Ele fará o melhor. Sempre faz. Quando oramos nosso coração passa a ser receptivo aos planos de Deus. Quanto mais eu oro, mais eu sou capaz de enxergar o que Ele quer para a minha vida.
Orar por alguém não significa receber de volta com a mesma intensidade. Muitas vezes Deus nos pede que mudemos primeiro para depois ocorrer a mudança genuína no outro. Aqui não se trata de quem será o primeiro ou de quem precisa mais da mudança, se trata de quem está disposto a mudar. É doloroso morrer para si mesma, mas essencial.
A oração permite aumentar a nossa fé e crer que Deus irá restaurar tudo o que foi danificado e destruído. Mas é preciso entender que mesmo em tempos difíceis o amor prevalecerá, será ressuscitado quando achar que morreu. A oração como linguagem máxima do amor, permite isso.
A sua responsabilidade é orar. A de Deus responder. Deixe nas mãos dEle aquilo que impede de aquietar o seu coração.
