HE PROMISED HIS PEACE ...a #devotional by Darla N. “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”
2 Thessalonians 3:16 #Bible#Truth
A very dear friend of mine is a foster parent, which in my opinion, is one of the most difficult and heart-wrenching situations you can be in.
Welcoming a child into your home and your heart, all the while knowing the situation is temporary, is emotionally charged. This is especially true when you see the child will be returning to a less-than-suitable condition when they go home.
Shortly after a situation like that happened to my friend, I asked her how she did it. How she managed to keep it together when she knew everything she had done for that sweet little child would be undone in a matter of days. Her reply made me realize just how little credit I was giving God on the issue.
She said, “I don't believe it will be undone. I know he won’t be prayed for, I know he won’t hear Bible stories and praise songs, and I know he won't hear ‘I love you’ at least a dozen times a day. But he did while he was here and he won’t forget that. And knowing that gives me peace. God told us when we decided to become foster parents that He would give us peace with every placement and every removal, and that’s it. I know He won't let them forget what they got from us.” We can have that same peace for ourselves. We can have a constant peace knowing that God is with us no matter what and will see us through anything.
Pray of the day: “God, thank You for being the source of peace in my heart and my mind. Help me to always remember You are near. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.”
We have got to stop looking to find the right one- because the people that show up in our lives come to us for a reason. They meet us where we are, not where we want to be. They are meant to teach us something, show us another side of ourselves, break us down at times.. but it is up to us to use this to help us grow. We are losing these lessons when our search and focus are not within. Even when we already are in a relationship we must use the relationship for our own growth. Relationships in all stages are meant to unravel us, they are meant to reveal hurt and wounds. They are meant to touch our core. The next phase of this is figuring out what to do with it. What do you need to learn? Don't be afraid to feel. Don't be afraid to go to therapy. Don't be afraid to face yourself. This is what it's all about. So instead of focusing on finding the right person, or trying to make your partner the right person, what is being revealed in you from these relationships? Focus on being the right person #nytherapist
What a great boy Oi is.
The lives he has touched.
The changes he has made
this last 15 months.
mobility massively improved,
Energy levels continually up
Johnson style .
So truly thankful for him and what he has done for our family’s lives as well as other families he has touched .
Offspring he has sired.(64)
Honestly thought we might loose him last year, was hurting so bad, gained so much weight from having fixed after Diva (7yrs) his last pup. Lost muscle structures. .
for changing one thing in his life,
As a Family
To change what we use
Changing something so simple
Our, Animals, Others .
Love talking about this... Eckert Tolle says “Feminine energy shifts the consciousness because
Women are more open to change”
Does that mean we should squash masculinity or masculine energy?
Or is this an opportunity for us to be empowered to be our feminine selves... Embrace the feminine energy that exists within all of us.
And that can scare those who witness an empowered person or goes against what we have been taught to believe.
A person who is empowered threatens our societal beliefs and leaves us feeling either confused or angry.
Confusing feminine empowerment as being against masculinity is where we often go vs inclusion and acceptance of both.
My Dad used to say “if we are not for them then we are against them”
Yet is that true?
It is my belief a person who is empowered takes their space not at the expense of a another
Heard this today... “Do not give your power away if it brings us joy” (paraphrasing from Bradley Cooper)
In other words, power in this sense is having a mastery of our feminine selves.. in their truth, not conforming to a societal belief.
A person who embraces their “power” of femininity is the most joyful and beautiful.
They are vulnerable, inclusive and as Eckert Tolle says more open to change.
Yes our current Society has been dictated by masculine egoic energy.
Nothing wrong with this energy yet it is driven by fear, repression, and separation, not on inclusion and change.
It is my belief the more we embrace our feminine energy, we become the humans we were created to be.
February can be about 1️⃣ PROGRESS or 2️⃣ EXCUSES • your CHOICE.
I choose progress, I’ve learned excuses don’t pay off in the long run ✌🏽💕 💯 #truth

Guard your eye gate! Everything that glitters is not gold! There are wolves in sheep’s clothing! Ladies and gentlemen, many times we are tripped up, caught off guard, or simply fall into the trappings of life because of short term thinking. We’re impressed by what someone else is doing, or, with what someone else has. There is absolutely nothing wrong with admiring, or being inspired by others, the problem comes when we’re coveting what someone else has. What’s for you is for you! Work diligently on yourself. Wait patiently on the Lord. And He will align you, with everything/one He has for you, in His timing! The very thing or person that impresses you today can bring about unnecessary pain for tomorrow. #Guardyourheart#Proverbs4:23 #FrankLuke#Truth#Focus#Wisdom#WednesdayWisdom

Today a cycle ends and a new beginning ensues. I feel this so deeply in my bones. As I write this, after two weeks of sitting in a deep inner exploration space 👁
The new moon two weeks ago, sent us all into a vortex of re-awakening to our cells (ourselves) 💗
Today, on the full moon, this process finds its home and promises to alter the inner workings of our perception forever 🌸
Much has been illuminated outwardly, so that we really pay attention to the state of our inner environment. We are starting to strengthen the understanding that the link between our inner and outer worlds, is absolutely symbiotic.
The suffering and confusion that we experience through our life circumstances, is a reflection of our inner state and can no longer be ignored by us.
Many of us have been traversing the trickier corners of our beings and performing a balancing act 👣
Unexpected shifts have been taking place and we are ready to begin again, as more of ourselves.
This has been a theme for the transformative beginning of 2019 🦋 And the beauty of what is to come, is still a touch out of our grasp, as we have been largely operating through our human tunnelled vision ☁️
If you allowed yourself to TRULY empty out in the past two weeks, you will feel a relaxed feeling of surrender tonight 🙏🏼
Relationships that made it through this dense passage way, will benefit greatly from an intentional re-commitment ceremony 🤞🏽
Finding a centre within your truest intention, is important during the coming days, as it will act as your anchor for deeper personal exploration ✨
