Discipline and Faith #RP@domraso We do not know when the time will come. Christ led and taught the fullest human experience the world has ever known. He asks us to always be alert and watchful for many reasons, but mainly because when the time does come we will be counted among the righteous and the just. Doing what God asks of us and doing our best to live in his ways. None of us will ever be perfect, but I believe if our heart is true and we do everything we can to understand him and grow closer each day in love, we will be prepared for when the time does come. #trust#faith#truth#Christ#crusheverything#Christian#mindset#Amen#honorthread
We are responsible for making decisions based on our own values and what we really love. When we become still and silent, our intuition can teach us what it knows. So many sources like self help books, documentaries, friends, family, successful business people etc can provide sparks of insight and ideas to explore, but at the end of the day, our inner knowing is in the quiet wisdom of our own bodies, accessed through love, passion and purpose. Trust your heart when you act, even when you can’t express the meaning through hard logic or to meet someone else’s satisfaction. Because when we follow what we love, we begin living according to our most cherished values. This is integrity – when what I say I value and believe matches my actions I am being true to my highest inner self. When out of your own integrity, it’s pretty hard to feel happiness or satisfaction.
Act out of integrity. Act out of love. 💞🙏
I don't mean to sound harsh but here's the truth: it's not your facial charm that make you beautiful but your inner grace. How many times on my Instagram would I have to share such posts about beauty.
If only our eyes saw souls instead of faces, I wonder how different our ideas about beauty might be. Your facial charm is a HOLLOW beauty with zero inner intelligence. (big point here).
For people with no inner beauty but charming facial grace it's just like "hey.. Congratulations for your face".

Advent, Day 8 // Isaiah 40:28-31
28 "Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and strengthens the powerless.
30 Even youths will faint and be weary,
and the young will fall exhausted;
31 but those who wait for the Lord
shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint."
Is anyone else hopelessly awaiting the "feeling" of Christmas? You know what I mean... that jolly, everything-is-okay-and-beautiful feeling that Hallmark shows us year after year. That peaceful, blissful, slow-down hum of the Holiday Season? Where it's warm and cozy even in the busy?
I never realized it before, but repeatedly, I find myself saying and thinking - "I just don't feel like it's the Christmas season yet," as I compare my "now" with the fantasized words above. And when this thought comes, I actually find myself believing that I had felt "that" before. But after I pause...I realize...those emotions and expectations are not as realistic as I paint them in my head. And when stuck in them, I end up playing a destructive game of comparison.
But the Christmas season is not about jolly, everything-is-okay. It's a story of a people who were weary and faint, being given a baby to hope in. To believe in. To wait upon. It's not a season of bliss, it's a season of dedicated praise. A Season of intentionally seeing Jesus as more valuable than the world paints Him, more realistic than Hallmark, and more powerful than any warm and cozy that we dream up.
Today, let us pause and think of our Savior. Let us wait upon Him - not the emotional high that we deem as normal and necessary. For He is our source of comfort and peace. He is the giver of strength this Holiday Season. #Advent2017#declareglory
