👑Remember brothers and sisters, we are in the 50 days of Easter. Let us rejoice each and everyday! How are you living out your Easter season? A few of the things I do is strictly pray the glorious mysteries and set up an Easter shrine in my home. What are some other ideas? 👑#easter#resurrection#rejoice#amen
💛He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:4 NLT 💛For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! Romans 8:18 AMPC 💛When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. Psalms 91:15 NLT 💛Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NLT “The pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow.” 😣⏳💪🏽 #Greater#Love#Hawaii#GreaterLove#Aloha#LiveAloha#Grace#Mercy#Jesus#Christ#Sacrifice#Peace#Pray#Faith#Hope#Pain#Strength#Trouble#Suffer#Rejoice#Rescue#Comfort
Oh gosh. Have you ever missed a day? Or part of one? I missed Tuesday- evening.
Sometime from leaving the office until getting to the loft to work out I went from knowing it was Tuesday to thinking it was Wednesday and Pilates. So Wednesday's after work workout I completed Thursday's Leg day.
But it's okay, today, I went back for my Extreme Tuesday Upper Fix.
Monday-Tuesday- Thursday Wednesday.
What we we call it, it's full of endless possibilities and blessings- Let's be strong and look to the goodness.
Psalm 118:24 NLT
 This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Regrann from @focusonthefamily - Sometimes it feels like we fail every day as moms, dads, husbands, wives or just as humans in general. It is so important that we turn to scripture that reminds us that we are not perfect, but we serve a God who is. His grace is sufficient for us and His power is made perfect in our weaknesses.
So embrace your failure and rejoice that we are not dependent on our own works, but we rely fully on Jesus Christ and His work on the cross.

Coloring and relaxing while I wait for Greg, my husband, to arrive home after driving seven hours. Even when days are hard, we can rejoice. Busy weekend ahead. House appraised, house showing, lunch date, celebrating Sunday for Jeremiah's 21st birthday and his Graduation. Excited to have friends and family join us. Do you have some exciting weekend plans? #familytime#celebrate#colortherapy
Most days it’s just a repeat of life and most days we get caught up and forget the little things. Every morning and night the one thing that’s constant is that smile on her face. She doesn’t see mom stressed out, or mom struggling, or mom cleaning her messes every morning and night. She sees mom loving her and giving her everything she wants and needs. She sees mom praying and reading her pink book (my Bible is pink) and she sees mom working hard to keep her happy and safe and feeling loved. Only through Gods grace and strength do we ever make it out of anything we face. Only through the love of God and support, (and little people depending on you) will you find everything you need to keep going, even when you’re in one of those funks when your soul is tired. And dang my soul is tired. But that smile. That smile and those kisses. I’d do this forever for that smile and those little butterfly kisses.
💡You have to fix the mind before you can bestow the blessing, because until they get their mind right, everything you invest in them is going to leak out of the crevices of a mind that refuses to change.
Look at your neighbor & ask them, "Do you have a mind to change?"
Wait for an answer.
If they said no, drag them to the altar.
You've got till midnight to get rid of every poison that's hindering you, every inflexibility that's stopping you from what God is about to pour into your life.
War be onto you if you're going into another year & waste another year with the old mentality while somebody's in the hospital begging God for the opportunity that you have right now.
You better step into this moment.
Put your hand on your head and say, "Give me a new mind"

Don’t worry about anything, but in everything through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:6-7
This verse is so comforting and so powerful to me. I don’t have to worry because God’s gifts of prayer and Jesus allow me to release my burdens to Him and be filled with His peace. So, why is it so hard to let go of my worries and give them to God? Why do I insist on trying to shoulder everything myself? It’s because trust is hard. For me it is, anyway. Even in God it’s hard. It’s hard to trust in the unknown. Especially for me. I like to gather as much information as I can about everything so that I feel prepared to make the best decisions I can. I can be pretty controlling and my perfectionist tendencies just add to that need to feel in control. But, all that control seeking often leads me down a rabbit hole to a point where I start to get overwhelmed and stressed and, ultimately, I’m not the one controlling my life. God is. He laid it out long ago and He has proven again and again that He is taking care of me. So why worry? I’ll tell you one thing. Since I started studying the Bible in this creative way, I’ve let a lot of worry go. The more time I spend creating with God and reading the Word, the more I find myself leaning on Him and less on myself. For the first time in 35 years, I feel CONNECTED to God. I’ve always believed and I’ve heard and read the Word many times but I never really FELT it the way I do now. I’m so grateful for that and for this #biblejournlingcommunity for keeping me inspired. My faith isn’t perfect, it gets tested and I find holes in it every time it does, but it’s getting stronger. If you’re a believer struggling to feel God in your life, I encourage you to look for ways to connect your hobbies and interests to God and see where He takes you!
When you get to meet the little miracle the Lord blessed your friends with...it's overwhelming. I only share this to show you the joy the Lord has welled up within me to share in the thankfulness of this life that Doctors said could never be. The Lord is ever faithful and I am so grateful for His mercies. #truefriends#rejoice !
Everything that's inflexible and everything that's not ready Everything that's backwards and everything that's negative and Everything that's condescending and everything that's carnal and Everything that's holding me back
I refuse to take it over into another year and waste another
New year with an old mind where the devil is alive, I will rejoice. #me#barletta#rejoice#steveangello#sa#quotes
If you would like to give your #heart to #Jesus Christ, the Son of God...
If you would like to be in #heaven with the Lord...
If you want to live for #God and serve Him in everything you do for the rest of your days...
If you want to make the #Father smile...
If you want to the #angels to #rejoice ...
If you want to be #adopted a family with a Father that will never leave you...
If you haven't taken the chance to give your heart to Him please...
Pray this simple prayer:
God, I am a #sinner . Please forgive me. Have mercy on me. I confess that Jesus is my Lord and I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I do not want to go to hell . Save me from death and please write my name in the Book of Life.
In Jesus Name I pray #Amen !

“For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.”
I Corinthians 2:11 NKJV
Today I drew something different rather then draw Hero’s or Villains, I drew 2 amazing people, unfortunately one is no longer with us, for he is rejoicing with the Lord. Rest In Peace JJ. You will be missed. #RIP#Rejoice#Love#YoullBeMissed
I tried to grow
a ten foot sunflower
for six years
before, one year,
some confident seeds
poked their sprouts
through the ebony soil
and laid claim
to their namesake.
That year they seemed
to grow six inches a day
At least until their radiant faces
towered over me,
declaring themselves tall enough.
That year the sun rejoiced
as the blossoms wept
for the chance to feel
what it can be like
to embody your full
and glorious potential.
