Busyness can be mistaken for productivity as easily as a long list of accomplishments can be confused with fulfillment. When we overstuff our schedules with things that distract us from God, we can actually miss out on the satisfaction we seek.
Lord, thanks for reminding us that we can trust You to do wonderful heart-changing work when we're courageous enough to be still and wise enough to appreciate Your purposed pauses. Please keep our eyes steadfast on You and help us slow down long enough to truly see people, enjoy community, recognize Your voice which is always in alignment with Scripture, and be rejuvenated by the peace of Your constant and powerful presence. In Jesus's name, Amen. --- www.xedixon.com --- #Faith#Jesus#Bible#Prayer#Prayers#Praying#God#GodIsGood#Christian#Christ#Bibleverse#Pray#JesusChrist#Devotion#ChristianWriters#Devotional
#CeritaDownlineku#MyCoreTeam#OriflameChangesLives#Repost from @meidarianti with @regram.app ... I have so many dreams that i want to achieve.
Everytime i pray to God, i always said 'God, please let me be the biggest livelihood for my parents, I wanna give them luxury house and travelling abroad with them soon. But i also want to continue my degree in Japan soon, i need a lot of money for all of that..how can i achieve all of them as soon as possible? help me find the way, God"
My parents have given their 20 years life for me. For my health, my education, my happiness. And i decide now it's my turn.
Soon after that, My sister @pettyfathia introduced Oriflame.
Do i have skills to do this business? NO.
So what do i have to start/do this business? I'M WILLING TO STUDY AND LEARN.
I don't have a lot of money. I'm just ordinary university student. I don't come from rich family too. I just have determination.
I believe everything can be learned and everything is possible if we work hard and pray to God.
Alhamdulillah after arround 3 months joined this business, i got many beneficial things! I got free bag, lipstick, nail color, luxury wallet, money. Also cool friends and business mentor/coach.
My promise is.. I will achieve more and absolutely achieve my dreams!

Your effort to surpass every trial won’t go to waste. Grow through what you go through and know that someday, everything will make perfect sense. I remember asking myself why it didn’t work out with my ex-boyfriend. I almost did lose him before our actual break-up and it hurts. It hurts more when I totally lost him. But that was then. Now I know the answer. That ex once told me he wants the best for me. That’s what God wants, too and He knows better. Starting over wasn’t easy but I wouldn’t have it any other way because that’s when He gave me a God-fearing, family-oriented man so handsome inside and out, so good at loving me, one of a kind and a keeper, he’s none other than my present boyfriend (naks) 💖 Then 3 months ago, my contract with my previous employer ended and it made me anxious. But it doesn’t matter now. See God’s been generous beyond expectations: I’m now part of a pioneer team, a new family-the beginning of something I’ve been prepared for and the opportunity to be permanently part of a growing company (makes me so happy!) It seems like all that’s happening is a blessing, just in disguise. #thankYou#2018isthebestyearyet So if you’re struggling now, don’t give up. Be excited about what’s going to happen. You get there, a little at a time, not all at once. Your prayers will be answered. 🌸 #trustHim#pray#inspayrational
Everything starts in the spiritual before manifested itself in the natural, and this verse and the events surrounding it is proof of that truth.
When the prophet Isaiah was giving this vision, the Jews were not yet even in captivity by the Babylonians. In fact, this verse is a prophetic vision of what would happen over 170 years later.
Israel's continual disobedience to God had put them on a course in which led them to divine judgement, Babylon's idolatry, wickedness, and treatment of God's people put them on the same path.
At the time, to mention Babylon would some how be totally destroyed by the Medes, who were in NO position to do such a thing, would have been laughable. But what would take place in the latter days were no laughing matter in the spiritual realm.
While everyone admired the greatness of Babylon, God already saw another nation far greater in its place. There is no such thing as "mighty" before God.
That's why our faith should be in Him alone.
We should not be moved by our present circumstances when God already told us things are going to change.
You may not be able to see things happening the way God said they would, but He's not asking you to look for it, He wants you to believe that what He declares WILL COME TO PASS!
Dear Heavenly Father,
It’s easy to be misunderstood. It’s natural to get frustrated when we’re angry and hurt. What isn’t so easy is taking a humble approach when we’re angry.
Help us to communicate with compassion and grace. Instead of losing our cool, or stewing in anger, teach us to step back and choose our words well before stepping forward again.
Grant us with the patience to listen to each other, as we try to understand each other’s heart.
Pride tells us to make self-centered decisions, while Your word tells us to bear with one another, and to forgive each other as You forgive us.
Give us the strength to resist our pride, to let go of our right to be right, and to speak with compassion and grace.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. – Colossians 3:12-15, KJV
