"It is through many persecutions that we must enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22)
These are the words that Paul and Barnabas shared with people from cities they had already been to. By revisiting them and strengthening them, just after leaving a city that beat and stoned Paul. After he was beat, the disciples surrounded him and scripture says he literally "got up and went into the [next] city"
What will your small persecution be today?
Pray for me that I can die to myself everyday. #morningteawithjesus#coffeewithjesus#liferestoration#goldfrankincensemyrrh
He didn't have to but he did!! A quote we share often to eachother to remind us of God's overwhelming reckless love for us, that he restored something so broken and so damaged that we never imagined would be possible to fix...but he did! And he can do the same for you. Nothing is to far gone in the eyes of Papa (what we love to call him). He is the creator of all things good and we couldn't have done it on our own. Let him begin to restore your life and marriage today, we promise you, you won't regret it!
We believe in you! #marriagequotes#restoration#marriage101#marriagebootcamp#lifequotes#liferestoration#reconciliation

now I’m less restrictive all I wanna eat is pizza and that is so okay 😋🍕 two days time imma be free from uni so full recovery will be my main priority every single moment until this shit no longer has any hold over me whatsoever 🙏🏼
📬✨ Last week, when the Lord turned my attention to these verses from the Bible, I completely stopped my ‘busyness’ and revised my daily schedule, my priorities.⠀
How much time do we spend in communion with Him, reading His Word, meditating on what the Lord teaches us? Do we nourish our inner man? Do we come to the sources of water — to His word and prayer — in order to receive His revelation, guidance, and strength to bear the fruit? Also, He drew my attention to another verse "...the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me..... Without Me you can do nothing. "⠀
Over the years, I noticed that every time I got fully engaged in some projects and other urgent matters, leaving prayer and reading His word for ‘later, another time, when I have a free moment’, I would lose my inner strength. It seemed as though my inner energy, liveliness and aspirations within me dried up. I felt empty, and tired. And when I came to my senses that this was a wrong inner state, I realized that in order to gain inner vitality, I needed to return to a constant close communion with God. ⠀
And surely, I felt a huge difference every single time when I returned to my source of life! Through His word and prayer, it felt as though I approached the sources of the waters, and everything inside me came to life. I felt vigorous, filled with energy and strength. Cheerfulness was overflowing! And, in addition, my projects went completely differently: everything was lining up in my favor and I had successful results in everything I did.⠀
As we drink water and eat food to support our physical body, we must give the same to our spirit. If we want to be healthy spiritually, have guidance from the Lord, and bear fruit, we must have a close relationship with Jesus through His word and fellowship with Him in prayer.⠀
