"For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds," says the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17
@gracefueled_rd and I created this super soft tri-blend shirt as a wearable reminder to follow the Joy of the Lord for your health instead of diet culture. ⠀ I mean really, anything we’ve ever stuck with was because we ENJOYED it, not because it was popular or even because someone else told us to. ⠀ Joy and health are inseparable, and built in to your natural design. That’s why we encourage you to find your joy in the Lord and keep going! ⠀ It’s hard to see the pocket design with this little Insta square, so we hope this close-up gives you a better vision of the fun pocket logo. ⠀ We can’t wait to wear this with a cardigan and cuffed jeans, with leggings on a walk, or paired with sweats for cozy nights! ⠀ These shirts are only available for the next 2 weeks, my friends. ⠀ What's more, we're SO excited to partner with @bringyourbrokenness_amie_s to help fund their dream of a Christian residential home for those struggling with eating disorders. All proceeds will go towards this joy goal! ⠀ Grab yours and one for a friend at the link in my bio and let's spread the joy together!
Don't let the enemy's lies keep you from Jesus.
Sermon clip (full message on YouTube ) Do you believe that purity is worth fighting for? If you keep running to the same things in life looking for temporary satisfaction, today you have the choice to trade in your sin for the freedom and healing that can only be found in Jesus. In the Bible, in the book of John, Jesus the Son of God chose to reveal Himself to a broken woman who was a social outcast in Samaria — and her life was forever changed. In this powerful message, Fred Young affirms that Jesus wants to heal you in the area of your deepest brokenness and give you a new identity! . . . @fredcyoung @hrock .music @hrock .bridge @hrock .yth @hrock .oc @hrock .corona @hrock .dtla . . . #pasadenacalifornia #losangelescounty #californiachurch #harvestrockbridge #youngadultsministry #church #god #jesus #love #jesussaves #home #worship #churchfamily #prayerwarriors #revivalisintheair #truthinlove #faithinhim #churchvibes #bibleteaching

When you know the truth, the TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. When you stop thinking about what others think of you, and BELIEVE who God says you are things start to happen in your brain. For true transformation of your Body, Soul & Spirit, It’s important to step into the “I AM” of the truth and own the words as your own. If God calls you this, START WALKING AS HE SEES YOU! . . #truthinlove #spiritandtruth #fitmom #fitat50 #homeschoolmom #presentmom #macros #lifestyle #gym #nutrition #onlinechallenges #fitness #losefat #fitfam #motivation #cleaneating #disney #health #athomeworkout #godisincontrol #exercise #workout #fit #active #fitnessgoals #athlete #transformation #wakeup #mindset #virtualworkouts

Where are you on your faith journey? Here is a clip showing the director of the Human Genome project, a highly educated doctor, telling his story of how he came to faith based on reason (not feelings ). This is a clip from an Alpha video (what I’ve called “God Class” in some posts ). I’m humbled to be leading one of small groups that meets via zoom weekly. It has been amazing and we’ve all learned a ton. We will likely be starting another class in early 2021 if you are interested. All are welcome.

“Your 𝙚𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 will lie to you. Listen to your convictions! Your emotions will tell you you’re tired. Your 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙫𝙞𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 will tell you there’s work left to do.” The enemy knows how to discourage you. He’ll throw those voices of doubt, fear & insecurity at you all. day. long. Whatever hard thing you’re facing right now, 𝙄 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡 𝙮𝙤𝙪. Go ahead and feel all the things. You’re allowed to feel. BUT I also encourage you. Get back up. Show up 𝙛𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚𝙙! Be ready to fight back! Let your convictions drive you. Emotions 𝙙𝙤 𝙣𝙤𝙩 have the last say over your life. Overwhelm is a choice Worry is a choice Doubt is a choice What emotions are holding you captive? What truth can you speak over yourself instead? You’re the one who gets to choose which voice wins.
True or sincere love tells the truth at the deepest level. The pastor over at @verticalstory said, “We believe that the highest form of love is when someone can REALLY tell you the truth.” Here at Boundless, we carry that same passion to always speak truth over you because we really love and we really care. Here's our truth in love for you today: “Christ made a single sacrifice for sins, and that was it! Then He sat down right beside God and waited for His enemies to cave in. It was a perfect sacrifice by a perfect person to perfect some very imperfect people. By that single offering, He did everything that needed to be done for everyone who takes part in the purifying process. The Holy Spirit confirms this: This new plan I’m making with Israel isn’t going to be written on paper, isn’t going to be chiseled in stone; This time “I’m writing out the plan in them, carving it on the lining of their hearts.” He concludes, I’ll forever wipe the slate clean of their sins.” Hebrews 10:12-18 [MSG] YES. Yes and amen. No matter who you are, what you've been or where you're going, you have been made new! Remember this truth and “Cling to what is good!” “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.” Rom. 12:9 [NIV] #clingtowhatisgood #madeformore #madenew #holyspirit #holyyoga #boundlessholyyoga #christianyoga #christianfitness #sinceretruth #truthinlove #lovewhatisgood
•Truth without Love is Brutality🤍Love without Truth is Hypocrisy• • How many times have you thought someone you cared about really needed to know something, but you “didn’t want to hurt their feelings,” so you stayed quiet? • Or have you ever just laid the bare truth out there at someone, without wrapping in how much you love them, so it hurt them so much they couldn’t even hear you? Then you chalked it up to “just being honest with them”? • If you love someone, be honest with them, but do it in a way that doesn’t rip them to shreds. • We need more Truth to be revealed in this world, just as much as we need more Love to wrap around it. • I believe in this so strongly, I have it tattooed on my ankle. I think if we all practiced it, it would change everything. • For me, I need the reminder to do it in Love, more than I need the reminder to speak Truth. Which one is for you that is more difficult? Speaking Truth or showing Love in the process? • If this inspired you, please share and tag me! • • #truthspeaker #loveeveryone #truthinlove #recoveringperfectionist #morninginspirations #truthbombs #howiwanttobe #howiwanttoraisemykids #intentionalparenting #tiffanyblue
Mr. Rogers once said, "If it's mentionable, it's manageable." Having open and honest conversations without fear of judgement provides space for healing. The fact that we talk about truth in love without fear of persecution.. we are able to live lives that honor God and love others as God loves us. I miss Mr. Rogers - they don't make many children shows like that anymore. . . #socialjusrice #truthinlove #changetheworld #mrrogers #landofmakebelieve
If you like raw truth listen up. ⠀ ⠀ Many people don’t understand why myself or many many others (despite what the media wants you to believe ) support our current administration & also actively speak out about abortion. You can take it or leave it, but the truth eventually reveals itself.⠀ ⠀ This is one of those areas so many want to scream & shout that we need to “mind our buiz” when the fact is we’ve been commanded by the Savior of the World to not be complacent in our words, actions & dealings. To not be intolerant toward others but a vessel of truth that provokes the uncomfort in others hearts & entrust the Holy Spirit to stir them toward truth. ⠀ ⠀ The cultural norm is not what we were asked to follow and be tolerant of by any means whatsoever. Jesus actually offended people by his words for the sake of truth to be revealed & freedom of bondage to be experienced. ⠀ ⠀ Many people expect Gods work to look a certain way & because we are not spotless lambs it impossible for it to appeal to their “standard” which is by the worlds. No human on the face of the planet is capable of being 100% holy or by people’s definition of “perfect”. ⠀ ⠀ So your offense by man may be warranted but your reaction to it is not, the ladder has created and fueled the hatred/division/emotional/fatal suffering of thousands of people which gets us no where in the end. So how do we stop persecuting persons for their beliefs and start to recognize just how human they are next to you? I’ll tell you this the blatant cultural intolerance has not nor will ever be the answer or solution. ⠀ ⠀ Here’s the bottom line,⠀ ⠀ The truth offends, the justice so many want to see happen will not happen the way they believe it’s supposed to. We end up demonstrating injustice while trying to pursue justice by our own moral standards instead of entrusting God to restore justice by his. ⠀ ⠀ Unless we all follow a standard that has already been written for us we can never agree & come to a unifying mindset as a society.⠀ ⠀ This is why we must always point back to the Bible & the Holy Spirits guidance to understand it, for it is the only clear example laid out to us. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Some things I've been learning: ~ My feelings will fail me but God won't. My feelings are unstable, God isn't, my feelings fluctuate but God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Bottom line, I can't ever rely on my feelings. ~ It's important to remember that I was created to GIVE glory not GET glory. ~ I always give time for what's important to me so if I'm too "busy" for God it means He's not important to me. ~ I'm as close to God as I want to be because if I draw near to Him then He'll draw near to me. ~ If I let my negative/condemning thoughts fester then I'll start believing them so I have to keep renewing my mind with the Word of God. Hope you're encouraged by these too 💛 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #nasinspires #christianyoutuber #truthinlove #heisgood #biblicalencouragement #thegreatcommission #powerofGod #bodyofchrist #christlike #goodword #blogger #christianblogger #histruthfirst #butfirstjesus #thepointedlife #givemejesus #christianposts #livedeeplyrooted #wordbeforeworld #lesshustlemoregrace #lampandlight #truthoverfeeling #hertrueword #christian #christianinfluencer #jesusforlife #christiantips #blackchristianinfluencers #blackinfluencers

“The Lord’s servant must not quarrel, but must be gentle to everyone, able to teach, and patient, instructing his opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance leading them to knowledge of the truth. Then they may come to their senses and escape the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” - 2 Tim. 2:24-26 We need to stop preaching “the gospel of Propaganda” instead of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus never forces truth on anyone nor rejects them when they don’t receive it. He simply shares it in love. If love is not our main objective then we’re missing the point. We’re missing the point of all of this.....to love people back to Christ. Be gentle. Be patient. Fight demons, not people. ~Truth over Trends~ • • • • #truth #truthinlove #love #patient #gentle #genuine #scripture #bibleverse #bible #word #quotes #quoteoftheday #sunday #nononsense #riseup #share
He only sustains us.
The point of Christian ministry is “to equip God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, SPEAKING the TRUTH in LOVE, we will grow to BECOME in every respect the mature body of HIM who is the head, that is, Christ. From HIM the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:12-16 Join us as we grow together and BECOME what we were created and redeemed to be: full of joy and peace, a living letter of hope speaking truth in love to others and affecting positive change in the world.

Where my people of God at? Come gather close this morning. The Lord has put some things on my heart that I think He wants you to know too. The work of justice is not about winning an argument or being on the right side of history. The work of justice is being right with God and working toward restoring the world to right order. It is defending the presence of the Most Holy in every person He created. Every one. Without exception. If we are getting riled up forgetting His desire that all be saved, we have lost sight of the ultimate battle. As we speak out, it should be for the love of souls. We cannot let hate of another person enter our hearts. We can be angry at what angers God. We can hate what God hates. We cannot, however, hate the other, because despite how despicable or ignorant we believe them to be, God loves them unequivocally. Our anger and correction ought always to be directed to their good out of LOVE. Is it hard? You better believe it! It’s far easier to write someone off. Is every soul going to be your mission? No way. It is important to discern well who God is calling us to engage and who we need to walk away from for our good and theirs. The delete key is your friend. Let’s continue the fight for justice on EVERY front with this in mind. He loves every soul and our attachment to sin and injustice hurts our souls. Caritas in Veritate - truth in love, my friends. There is work to be done until the time He makes all right again. Carry on, child of God. Carry on.
“From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “ Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” - Matthew 4:17 Jesus begins His ministry in the Gospel of Matthew with this message “repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand” this was letting them know that they need to turn from the path they're on and turn their hearts back to God. We must also preach the Truth in love. Today my friend if your reading this, repent and turn your heart back to God for His coming back soon 👆🏻
An oak tree starts as a little acorn. But Inside that acorn is so much potential. So much life. That acorn grows into a beautiful oak tree which in turn produces exponentially more seeds to create even more oak trees—to produce more acorns and so on and so on. We plant seeds too. Seeds of ideas, experiences, emotions, and more. What kind of seed we plant will go on to grow and produce seeds of the same kind. What if we plant lies based on fleeting cultural values? Our legacy will be more of the same. So plant truth. Plant the Gospel seed in your children, friends, neighbors, and schools. They will grow and spread these truths as seeds in others—and so on and so on—to leave a legacy of faith.
In the biggest sense, and the smallest moment, more and more and more grace and peace to you, to your home, to your worry, to your tired, to your kids, to your marriage, to your neighbors, to your soul. —— “God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace.” 1 Peter 1:2
“Be nice” how often did I hear this? How often did I say this? 🤦♀️ . Be nice even over being honest. I spent years trying to be nicer. Now, I strive to be honest and respectful. . The Bible says “tell the Truth in Love”. Not, be nice to the point of dishonesty. . Practice telling the truth. Manage the uncomfortable feeling it brings. It is the trait that is worth the most. You have to choose NICE or HONEST. I strive for honesty with respect. The recipe I am drawn to in others and the traits that I am desiring in myself. . #tellthetruth #truthfrees #truthheals #christiancounselor #christiantherapist #psychotherapy #truthinlove #dontbenice #behonest #pittsburghcounselor #manageanxiety #stressless #emotionalregulation #niceisoverrated #truthfocused #anxietyrelief #anxietyfighter #anxietywarrior #anxietymanagement #anxietyawarness #anxietycoach #anxietycoaches #anxietysupport #anxietyproblems #anxietytips #anxietyisreal #stressreliever #stressreduction #stressrelieving #relationshipmatters
This morning I was preparing for this evenings Bible Study I am leading on Fervent, which is a fantastic book I think all women should read BTW!! Anyway, in preparation for this particular chapter in Strategy 9 “Your Hurts”, I was flooded with memories of past hurts... hurts I caused, hurts caused by others, unnecessary hurts, hurts that could have been avoided all together had I been more vigilant, and hurts that I still held onto. I sat and thought about all the energy that I have wasted carrying these burdens myself, burdens that were already taken care of on The Cross and paid for by The Precious Blood of Jesus. Since I don’t believe in wasting an opportunity to be a witness, I want to encourage you to start this week off by letting go !! If you are harboring any hurts, unforgiveness, or heaviness of any kind —just let it go! That energy, that weight, that heavy load... it’s not yours to carry! Lay at the cross and let your heart be light. I know it’s easier said than done, but if you will give it to God by faith — and I mean give it all ( don’t keep any of it! ) He will comfort you and fill you with peace, but YOU have to rest in it. The choice is yours to keep carrying around the baggage or let it all go for good!! Sisters, our loving Heavenly Father so desperately desires to lavish peace upon you, just let Him...Enter into His rest and allow His grace to pour on you today🥰 . . . . . #transparency #seekfirstgodskingdom #prayer #fixyoureyesonjesus #warroom #truthinlove #faith #honesty #decreeanddeclare #trustgod #neverforsaken #pray #love #prayerwarrior #praying #prayerchangesthings #godhearsourprayers #itrustgod #prayers #praywithoutceasing #beanxiousfornothing #prayerlife #prayerworks #praisehiminthestorm #faithfulliving #inspiration #fervent #praytogod #jesusislord #healing
A psychic told me 2019 would be my best year. This was before Jesus saved me and when I practicing new age 💩. ⠀ A lot of what she said was twisted and I was left with uncertainty and confusion for many years to come. ⠀ 2019 turned out to be WAY less than a good year for my personal life and health. It was a year that tested my faith at its deepest and darkest moments. ⠀ In the year of being restored, God guided me to lean in on Him more than I ever have before. ⠀ He showed me who to let go of, who to surround myself with, what direction to take my business in and where He wants my focus in 2020. ⠀ I’m sooo excited to share all the news with you in tomorrow’s Podcast episode! Be sure to stay tuned!
And my most favorite new sticker coming to the shop on Wednesday!😍 A take on on that famous saying I heard all the time as a kid: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Anyone else?😜 I just think this version is a bit more to the point.😏 Nothing nice to say? Then: 🤐. • Although I’ll add...if you have something important and TRUTHFUL to say, you don’t have to be QUIET, just for the sake of being NICE. No one needs to be a doormat or be quiet when something is WRONG. You can (and should ) speak the truth! You CAN speak your opinion. Just do it in LOVE, politely, respectfully, and with kindness, even if it isn’t exactly what someone else wants to hear. It’s all about the HEART and the DELIVERY, in my humble opinion.💗 ➡️But these days, so many people are just plain mean, and that’s unnecessary.🙄 We can do better.👭🏻 #ifyoudonthaveanythingnicetosaydontsayanythingatall #bekindorbequiet #bequiet #kindnessmatters #truthinlove #vinylstickers #vinylsticker #stickermule #stickercollection #stickercollector #rainbowcolors #rainbowart #rainbow 🌈 #pinkrobynstickers
was having coffee with a friend today and she was telling me about the conviction that Netflix brings her. As we were walking away I told her she should delete Netflix off her phone. She then pulled out her phone and deleted Disney+ also. . The thing is friends, I’m not trying to sound like some legalistic bible pusher. I’m encouraging you and reminding you that nothing should get in the way of our walk with God. The enemy deceives & distracts us DAILY and CONSTANTLY. Are we going to allow that to happen or will we take hold of our relationship with Christ? Because the hard truth for ya: nobody will do it for you. . Matthew 7:13-14, ““Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Will you go the easy, flesh desired, worldly route or are you going to go the extra mile for Christ? Only you can make that decision for yourself. Your youth group can’t, your circumstances can’t, your parents can’t, your friends can’t. Stop waiting on life to slow down to really start pursuing Christ because the truth is, life will only speed up. It’s time to take charge and make decisions toward your walk with God. . Praise God that His yoke is easy (Matthew 11 ) and we don’t need to strive for relationship with Him. All we need to do is show up and He takes care of the rest. Honestly, showing up is hard. It takes consistency and devotion. But if you filling your life with toxic people, music that glorifies hook up culture, and pornography then it WILL be nearly impossible to pursue Christ. Because darkness CANNOT dwell where light is. (2 Corinthians 6:14 ) This doesn’t mean you have to clean yourself up before going to God, but you cannot cultivate a relationship with Christ while also cultivating a sinful lifestyle. God is worth the sacrifice. God is worth giving up your fleshly desires. Get with people who call you higher. Get with people who remind you whose you are. Don’t settle with compromise. 🙌🏼 . Tag a friend who calls you higher & keeps you accountable in following Christ ❤️
