LADIES!!! Please, please, PLEASE read the following page!! We must be praying for our future husbands to LEAD us and GROW us closer to God. The purpose of a marriage is to glorify God in EVERYTHING you do!! This is why he created it, to bring HIM glory through us. This is why we must set an example to those around us. Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for those who belong to the Lord.” When we submit to our husbands, it is saying that we are honoring both our husband and the Lord. • • • #futurehusband #christfollower #future #husband #leader #love #bible #jesus #biblereading #devotions #faith #futureplans #christlike #setanexample

Moses of Ethiopia became a Christian in the 4th c. He renounced his former life as a bandit when he hid at a monastery after an attempted robbery. A tall and imposing man, he was known as a respected leader. This quote attributed to him reflects his belief in the power of forgiveness and refusal to judge others.

A Prayer of Thankfulness for God’s Faithfulness from @thegospelcoalition . Dear heavenly Father, this is one of those days in which there’s nothing really grumble-worthy going on in my life. Though I’m sure I could muster up plenty of things to complain about, those things would quickly lose their size and impact, when held up alongside of the riches of the gospel. My heart is filled with thanksgiving and praise-offering today, and I want to take time to tell you why, as I pray though King David’s grace-list. . Father, thank you for forgiving all of my sins, through the work of Jesus. May I never take that miracle of grace and generosity for granted. And may this rich standing in grace compel me to greater forbearance, patience and forgiveness towards others. . Father, thank you for healing all my diseases, brokenness, weaknesses. Though the fullness of my healing will require the 2nd coming of Jesus, nonetheless, you are presently healing me spiritually and emotionally, mentally and physically. One Day I, along with all your children, will be completely whole and free. I’ve never longed for that Day more! . Father, thank you for not only pulling me up out of all kinds of “pits”—those of my own choosing and other’s doing, but also for crowning me with your love and compassion. I’m no longer a slave to sin and death, and now, I’m a member of your priestly and kingly people—who reign in life through grace, as we love and serve others. What a privilege! . Father, thank you for satisfying my desires with good things. What do I have that I have not received from you? Absolutely nothing. Thank you for intending my pleasure and for resourcing my delights. You’ve not only given me your love—which is better than life; you’ve also given me so many good things, which greatly enhance life in this broken world. . Things to eat and see, smell and savor, touch and share; things to make me laugh and people to dry my tears; things to sing about and things to quietly ponder. Though my body is getting older, you are continually giving me a youthful, renewed heart, for which I praise and worship you. So very Amen I pray, in Jesus’ exalted and caring name. . #loopforwomen

"For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." Power? What power? The power of faith.

Good Sunday evening to you. Philippians 3:12-14, Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been perfected, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have laid hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus.

Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bibleandtea #seekhimfirst #buildinghiskingdom #graceupongrace #peaceandquiet #setapartgirl #jesuslovesme #christianwomen #thekingdomofheaven #christfollower #daughteroftheking #dailyquiettime#bestill #biblejournaling #gritandvirtue #goodnewsfeed #lifelivedbeautifully #lampandlight #whateverislovely #wordbeforeworld #biblestudy #deeplyrooted #biblejournalingcommunity #deeplyrooted #abundance #thatsdarling #biblereading #godsplan# #godisfaithful

Our words can plant seeds of faith and hope but can also plant seeds of fear and doubt. Don’t let your mouth be an instrument for the enemy. Watch what you speak over your life and lives of others.

Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen - Heb 11:1

“Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.” . I know for me that answer is YES! Sure not everyday is perfect and I’m far from it, but I have changed in many ways over the last year for the better. I’m making choices that make me happier everyday. . Maybe it’s starting a health and fitness journey, or saving more money this year, or being a better version of yourself whether that’s mental or physical. . Are there things in your life that you would like to change? Think about what some of those are and think about making a plan, and how you can put that plan into action. Becoming a coach has made more so much more of a happy & healthy person. This is my passion I used to dream about the day I could help others achieve their goals and now I’m living my dream! . When are you going to start living yours!? alysa.coaching@gmail.com

~ UNQUENCHABLE💕 ~ . More than one misstep of my life was driven by longing for love---a desire to fill a deep emptiness in my heart. This longing did not stem from lack of love from my parents, wounding by other people, or any other human origin.The reason is revealed in God’s word. Simply put, we were born to it. The human heart reflects the heart of the Creator. We were created for intimacy and intended to exist in sacred and passionate relationship with our Maker. It’s easy to blame emptiness, loneliness, or feeling “un-loved” on our life circumstance. It’s a foolproof explanation—and a true one— because every person in our life has, indeed, failed to love us the way we need to be loved. No-one has given us self-less, unconditional love. No one ever will. Imperfect humans cannot love perfectly. But God... . 🍃I appeared to them from far away and said: “I have loved you with an everlasting love—out of faithfulness I have drawn you close.”🍃 Jeremiah 31:3 REFLECTION: Song of Songs ~ Solomon’s mesmerizing and poetic song describes love that can only be found through a relationship with the One who loves His children extravagantly, perfectly, and eternally. When we accept Jesus as Savior, we are wrapped in everlasting love: A love that is unconditional and unfailing; never self-serving or tainted by need for gratification or affirmation. Christ' love is embued with His grace and not diminished by our shortcomings or even our sin. It cannot be thwarted by the enemy or purchased for all the wealth in this world. Speaking of this Holy love between the Bride and our Beloved, Solomon says: . 🍃Place me like a SEAL over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like a blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love, Nor can the floods drown it.

We find out the gender this week!! 💙💕 I’m also an introvert. I struggle with anxiety. I hate crowds. I hate small spaces. I work full time running a daycare. I am not perfect with my fitness. Definitely not perfect with my nutrition. But I love Jesus. I love coffee. I love Target. I love pizza. I love being conscious of my health for ME and my FAMILY. I am not perfect. Obviously not at my goal weight 🤰🏻 But I love me. And I love to inspire other women along my entire journey!

Reconciliation is a beautiful thing. I am renewed when I have the courage to "own" my mistakes and ask God and those that I have mistreated for forgiveness. I feel lighter on my feet and my soul is refreshed. .

Desmond Tutu, an anti-apartheid and human rights activist, was the 1st black African to hold the office of Archbishop of Capetown, S.Africa. Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Tutu believed in the power of forgiveness and reconciliation, drawn from his faith in the almighty Lord.

Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

Today was nothing short of amazing 💙 I’ve been a Christian and believer for years. However my heart never followed in His steps and pursued a relationship with our Heavenly Father. This last year my life’s been led in ways and it was very clear it was as all in His direction. My absolute best friend kept telling me to bring our family to @revchurchnc and we finally did last year and it’s been the best choice. Pastor @richardgmyers literally speaks to my heart every week. I could go on for hours on him and the worship band. I’ll never be able to thank @taylormyersjohnson enough for steering me and my family where we were always meant to be. Her awesome husband and myself both were baptized and it’ll be a memory I cherish my entire life 💙 the words spoken today still are on my mind and made every moment of today amazing. God has His place for you. He’s just waiting on your heart to be ready. I’m so thankful I listened to Him pulling at me. . . . . . #faithful #godgirls #womenoftheword #sheisnotlost #sheislight #jesussaves #christfollower #womenoffaith #womeninspiringwomen #prayer #wakeprayslay #wakeupwithpurpose #baptism #baptized #sundaymorning

Have you ever been hated? I have. I’ve had people who have hated me. Girls who were jealous or mean. An x husband. Oh yeah..... there’s a list. But we have an enemy that’s WAY worse than people. The devil. Satan hates all mankind. He hates people so much that HE is the reason behind the hatred in the hearts of people. He wants to divide friends, families, races, churches, and he especially wants to separate us from God. That’s his plan.... to divide and conquer. What is GOD’S way to rescue us from our enemies? He wants us to embrace HIM. God is a hiding place... a spiritual hiding place. He protects us when the enemy is chasing us down. He is our comfort and He gives us strength to not retaliate in hatred. He shows us a way in the secret place to love the people who hurt us. He gives us eyes to see the REAL enemy.... the REAL divider...satan. God gives us the supernatural ability to pray for the ones who hurt us and He shows us how to maintain joy in the midst of it all. This is TRUE rescue from our enemies; not being affected by the words or deeds of mankind but embracing forgiveness and even love. The heart of God is a deep place that pours forth this incredible ability to love people. SEEK GOD! REBUKE THE DEVIL! And ask God for grace to love your enemies. ❤️ #findforgiveness #hatersroast #enemies #meaningfulquotes #depression #ilovejesus❤ #hecaresforyou #strongfirst #christfollower

Perhaps... • • Do you ever feel like you're searching and searching for your "moment"? Like the grass is greener on the other side? I feel ya. I've been there many times more than I can count. It's like I'm constantly comparing myself to everyone else's success. And when that happens, I get really down and out. My self-confidence becomes depleted and I lose steam. But I found that when I stop looking and searching and worrying over when my moment will arrive, and I rest in the hope I have for and in Jesus, I find that the wait isn't so bad. And when my "moment" finally comes around, man...it's oh so sweet! • #encouragement #godsplan #restinjesus #motherhoodonpurpose #coffeeandjesus #jesusandcoffee #christfollower #jesusgirl #soulscripts #bible #itiswellwithmysoul #christian #christianministry #wellwateredwomen #lampandlight #dailygrace #girlwashyourface #dailymotivation

“Momma, sit in the backseat with me!” He’s said it every Sunday when we’re heading out to church for the past few months. . One day he won’t ask me to sit with him so for now I say yes and enjoy the sweet moments together. . (He didn’t want to smile for the pic because he was to preoccupied with his new watch.)

__No Free Pass__ There is a culture among religious believers that says "God loves me though, so I'm good" prior to, or after doing something they know they prolly shouldn't be. _ Like having sex out of marriage...👀 "God loves me though". _ Abusing drugs & alcohol... "God luv me tho" Lying, cheating & gossiping... "But He loves me!" _ Not reading your Bible, not praying... "He knows my heart" [That one is FAMOUS for misuse] ___ Listen, YES God loves you. [John 15:9, Jeremiah 31:3] Eternally in a way that will never change, no matter what you do. THAT DOES NOT MEAN, what you do does not matter! Everything you say & do matters! What you listen to and even where you go. Who you call friends. All of it matters to God! Often we put ourselves in difficult situations because we are not paying attention to what we are doing. The things you do may be legal, but God might want you to abstain. He will show you what it is you have to let go of, if you let Him. He's a gentleman so He's waiting on you. ___ And, YES God knows your heart, but do you know His? Do you know, 1 who He REALLY is? Secondly, do you know who you are IN HIM? Lastly do you know what He is trying to do THROUGH YOU? I am not even trying to act like I got this all figured out, or on lock. Everyday I am growing and becoming better as I am allowing His love to not just be about my sin. His love existed for us before Adam & Eve sinned in the garden. I am trying to get to His original intent! For my life. For this world. ___ Sin is sin, is sin is sin. If you're foggy about the details, read your word. Get invested in the thing that was created to give you life. [John 6:35, John 1:14]. You don't only live for God on a Sunday. Monday through Saturday are supposed to be His as well. We cannot hang up our faith like a trusty winter coat. Living our life when the weather is nice, but running back to it when it starts to rain. God wants your heart more, not your Sunday. WILL YOU GIVE IT TO HIM?

Going to Church doesn't make you Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car...What makes us a Christian is our commitment to Christ in every area of our life. #wordoftheday #christianity #christfollower #committedtochrist #everyday #wearetheriver #theriver #theriverlasvegas

*NEVER SAY NEVER* • I remember I had told myself that I'd NEVER date a military guy again and that I'd NEVER date a guy long distance again. • Imagine how annoyed I was when you told me you were in the military and that you lived across the country from me. 😂😂😂 • It's funny now because I realize that God turns our NEVERS into POSSIBILITIES...and often our REALITIES. • And I'm so glad he did. • I never knew I could love someone so much. I never knew I could love a community so much. • Here we are all these years later and I'm so thankful that I say yes to the NEVERS.

Can’t do without my God!

#fiberuarychallenge post no. 17, it's a Sunday Funday!...🎡🎠... . ...For me, I'm having total fun, after having received an early morning text update from a good friend... . ...she asked me if I could make a #prayershawl for a friend of hers who was battling cancer...😈. . ...she was understandably scared, and needed encouragement & comfort... . ...it was something that I didn't think I would be able to pull off at that time... due to limited time and yarn...or so, I thought! . I found an unfinished shawl in my stash, and the matching yarn in a box...which I had bought a year prior....I didn't notice either, at first...😲. . Anyway...the end of the story, that she has been declared cancer free!...🎉🎊...woo-hoo!😄. . ...I was told that she wrapped herself in the shawl on her doctor's visits....she calls it "the magic shawl" 💥💨💫... . BTW, I am a Christ-follower and the young lady, is not...which doesn't matter to me... . ...she's just not aware that I prayed over the shawl before I sent it to her..😂😎🙇... . However, I do agree...Jesus is "magic"🔥...(yarn, too!) . . . . . . . . . #hope #grace #blessed #christfollower #amen #peace #believe #praise #spirit #crochetlife #crochetaddict #inspirational #ganchillo #crochetlove #crochetersofinstagram #haken #crochetinspiration #hechoamano #imadethis #häkeln #inspiredtocreate #virka #hekle #croche #uncinetto #crochetinspiration

Im currently living through this. I heard “no” when I really wanted to hear “yes”, & it stung. Even though I’m disappointed, I trust that God has something even better in store. I believe we’ve all been protected by God over & over in the form of disappointments. I believe that God has my best interest in mind & I hold on to that hope knowing I can’t see the big picture, but He can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This idea has been weighing heavy on me, so I shared about it in my stories last night & I really appreciate everyone who let me know it spoke to them❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m a person who is always trying to grow & learn through my experiences, and something I loveeeee to do is talk through new ideas/thoughts I have. If im being honest, sometimes it’s really difficult for me to open up about my thoughts! I worry people wont understand what I mean or get offended. But at the end of the day, I really just want to try to connect with people through it. I want to share things that have helped me so that it can help other people, too. That’s the whole reason I started this account! So to you lovely friends who always message me, comment on my posts, & let me know when you’re encouraged- thank you so much. It means the world to me!!! 💕💕💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Philippians‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭NIV ⠀ We have to learn the difference between self care and selfish. If we take care of ourselves we’re in a healthy place to take care of others as God constantly calls us to do.

Wisdom is a tree of Life; blessed are those who lay hold of her.

HUGE Shout Out and Thank You to everyone whose supported me and walked with me, in the past 4 years, in my walk with Christ! Thank you Cait, Crystal, and Pastor Justin for baptizing me today!! I went from smoking marijuana, drinking alcohol, feeling depressed, and denying Christ as my Lord and Savior TO serving at my church, engaging in multiple bible studies, directing bible camps, finding joy, accepting Christ into my life and so much more! My story is CRAZY but UNIQUE. My story is SCARY but a good LIFE LESSON. My story is SORROWFUL but JOYFUL. My story BRINGS hope, a sigh of relief, and encouragement to those struggling. Four Years ago, I accepted Christ back into my life. Today, I declared my faith in front of my church through the symbol of BAPTISM! #grateful #blessed #loved #encouraged #christfollower #baptized 🖤🖤🖤

Sunday mood 💗 What are you babes up to? I always start the day by fueling my soul...and Layla snugs. ☺️(can you see her?!?! 😍😭) I also feel like I’ve been cleaning for the past 48 hours. But it feels good to release that energy from my brain about it “needing to get done.” Did you know that everything around us takes up not just physical space but mental space too? Weird, but totally makes sense. I didn’t realize I was subconsciously already doing this when I wrote out my daily non-negotiables every morning. When I heard it on the @empowerherpodcast it totally blew my mind. 🤯 Anyway(s?) - ugh which one is it?!?! HAHA I’m finishing this french vanilla coffee and getting plugged into my emails, setting up my girls in the JTS #joytribetransformationstudio and enrolling last minute babes into my virtual bootcamp. Secret: I still have 2 spots open so don’t be afraid to reach out and snag one...or I’ll just ask you.😏 It was joining one of these that changed the course of my entire LIFE - so yeah, I want you to do this with me so it can change yours too. 👯‍♀️ XO, Your personal hype gal. 😉💋

The road gets rough but as long as I have faith in Him I can keep progressing. . . . . #budgets #budgeting #youtubebudget #debtfreejourney #debtfree #debtdemolished #planner #organizer #inspirationalsunday #debtfreecommunity #christian #faith #christfollower

Psalms 34:5 KJV • • Follow, Like, and Comment.

SPRITUAL HEALING Like I had mentioned in my last post I had been dealing with a lot of nightmares and demonic night terrors as of late. And I had been going through a process of surrendering it completely to God. Last night at our Revival nights @mountainparkchurch they had an alter call for anyone who had been suffering from sleep disorders or anxiety surrounding sleep or night terrors. So I went up and an elder of the church anointed me with oil and prayed over me. And THE SECOND I WALKED INTO MY HOME LAST NIGHT I KNEW SOMETHING WAS DIFFERENT. I slept the second my head hit the pillow and until I woke up. Nothing. Nothing but peace and rest. It was incredible. And this morning while I was doing my devotions I felt The Holy Spirit say to me “remember you need to LIVE like you’ve been healed” And this morning at church we were recounting all the amazing things God has been doing in our church. Our Pastor @aplett asked if anyone that at had experienced those night terrors had a night of rest last night and I was DYING on the inside because I really DO NOT like public speaking. But then I remembered what the Holy Spirit said and I let my hand creep up. And I stood before my church and shared what God has set me free from. It’s was terrifyingly-beautiful because I feel like so often we can walk up to alter call God is pulling us to, but then we just go back to living our lives with the same doubt, pain, suffering or addiction. It was one thing for me to WANT spiritual healing in my life, it has been another to live like it. So I pray that for anyone desiring God to set them free from something today, to WALK BOLDLY in the truth that HE HAS OVERCOME IT!! 🙌🏼

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 ❤️❤️💪🏼

"The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing." -Zeph. 3:17 What joy! 💗 The Lord rejoices over me with singing! 🎶 @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2zYQN #liketkit #emptynestblessed 📸by @meganmweaver . . . . . . #scripturesunday #faithinspired #scripturememory #christian #believer #womanoffaith #christfollower #christianblogger #faithblogger #southernblogger #heisallineed #womenoffaith #jesusismyrock #mindsetmatters #faithbased #madeformore #faithful #prayer #believer #womanoftheword #womenoftheword #emptynest #emptynester #emptynesters #emptynestblogger #februarystylingbliss #pybstylechallenge

Who do you listen to? I think we all have those people we trust but I’m afraid we also have a tendency to listen to those who don’t have our best interest in mind. There is One who we should be listening to and if we do, we will dwell in safety and without fear. But He is usually the last person we turn to—the Lord. Next week let’s try and spend more time reading God’s Word and meditating/listening to what He wants to speak to us. Want security and to live without fear? Rest in this truth found in Proverbs. ❤️ #sundayscripture #sundaythoughts #sunday #sheep #farmlife #grace #extremejoy #encouragements #scriptures #womenintheword #menintheword #bible #scriptureoftheday #christfollower #holybible #godsword #godstruth #devotion #christianwalk #jesuslovesyou #keepingitreal #restingintruth #safety #security

Get up every morning and tell yourself “I can do this”💪🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I remind myself every day that I’m worth it. I tell myself that I’m loved. That I am capable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And to be able to develop myself BECAUSE of this business, because it’s in my literal JOB DESCRIPTION to better myself as human being. That is something that I am forever grateful for.💕✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blessed #youareworthit

...Inspiring message at Church today has me reflecting on the power of great and true leadership...it is possible to do the right thing and be wildly successful but many choose to build their kingdom at the expense of others vs. to the benefit of others....and while there is short term gain at times in hurting others to benefit yourself leaders and legacies that last always honor the hands that built them, seek to do what’s right by the powerless, and to see the unseen...thankful for those who have set the example and praying to be a woman of character that builds Kingdoms that rise with others not by pushing others down...#thankful #christian #kingdombuilders #leadership #instaquotes #instapic thank you @portrayedbykenzy for the amazing photos!! ❤️❤️🙏🙏❤️❤️🙏🙏

So proud of my son @julio.ortiz25 as he gets one step closer to become the first and only pilot in the Ortiz family. Until you spread your wings, you'll have no idea how far you can fly. Sky is the limit.#wingsofstrength #flighttraining #proudofyou #proudfather #christfollower #loveoverhate #baseball⚾ #baseballism #underamour

We are healed. We are made whole. We are made new. We are delivered. We are free .We are His...

Hello, cancer. Perhaps I need to remind you who I am! 💪🏻

Do you trust Jesus? Do your actions show that you trust Jesus? . And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. -Mark 1:17-18 . When Jesus calls us, we have to be willing to completely drop our nets and change what we are fishing for.

We have all heard, "actions speak louder than words!"...but did you know the Bible also agrees with that statement!! Love with your actions, not just your words! It takes a little bit of effort on our parts to love others...but just saying we love them is not what makes a difference...our actions do❤️. Just some food for thought😉..have a blessed Sunday friends!!! . . . . #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #lovewithoutlimits #loveothers #bekindtooneanother #serveothers #christianmom #followerofchrist #christfollower #sharelove #lovewithyourlife #dailybibleverse #bibleverses #scriptureoftheday #shineyourlight #encouragementquotes

What a Sunday! Thanks for spending your morning with us. Have a great week! #mohawkvalleychurch #mvc #mvchurch #yourpurpose #lovegod #lovepeople #community #disciple #christfollower #strongertogether

Happy Sunday! Starting tomorrow our local MOPS Bible Study group is starting our Prayers on Fire 🔥 30 Day Prayer Prompt. I designed this off of the MOPS Theme this year, Find Your Fire. I invite anyone to join us and to substitute our area with your own. If you have a prayer journal I would recommend using it with these prompts. I’m so excited to start this and to see where God takes this and to see Him work through our prayers! #prayerjournal #dailyprayerprompt #30dayprayerchallenge #prayersonfire #freeprayers #christianwomen #mopsinternational #mopspray

So what church are you going to today?! Drop your church’s name below ⛪️ if you agree 🙌🏾 . . .

So far I’ve paid off two credit cards! - - I had to remind myself to not lose focus because my numbers aren’t as high as some in the #debtfreecommunity. I have to be content with my progress because it is MY journey. - - What are you proud of in your journey? 💕

Hey...I’m the “Budgeting Wifey” and I am determined to earn financial freedom! I’m a twenty-something millennial wife that started the debt free journey back in November of 2018. - - For so long I lived without a budget and bought whatever I want, whenever I wanted to. I didn’t care that I was amounting thousands of dollars of debt simply because “I looked good”. One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was not caring what others thought about me or trying to “Keep up with the Joneses”. - - I took a leap of faith, prayed to God for help, and began reading Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. Now I am determined to “live like no one else now so later I can live like no one else!”
