sweeterthansunshine: Excerpt from Calm My Anxious Heart: We grow up when we see our life & our role from God’s perspective; when we thank God for the role He has assigned us and begin to see our cup as a gift instead of a cross; when each morning we ask, “God, how can I glorify You today in my given role?” Every role is a gift. A new assignment. Peace of the sort the world cannot give...

Sudden changes. More changes.
So, I have really been thinking about this for a while. I feel as if my volunteer work at the hospital has been a little dragging lately. It is really a lot harder to do the program especially after the change in unit. But with these new revelations coming from the Lord, I wonder if it’s wise to keep this job. I’m clearly being slowly led away from the profession I’ve been...

. I am done. I am just so done. Apparently, I shouldn’t be “living for Christ too much”, that I should have a “normal life”. You know, the 9-to-5, nice house, nice car, nice job type of person. I should just be somewhat holy - shouldn’t steal, shouldn’t lie, shouldn’t party with the “worldly people”. Apparently, my life is a mess....
Under New Ownership →
kyliekylie: by Leslie Ludy The secret to the true Christian life is exchanging our own lives for the life of Jesus Christ; allowing our bodies to be completely overtaken by a foreign power – the very Spirit of Almighty God. And declaring along with Paul, “…it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” Most of us stand in the way of letting Christ truly live in and through...
God is a holy God - that’s something that the Americans have forgotten. Many of...– Paul Washer (via childofweakness)
A year ago you would find me crying while I argue with my parents about what I want to do in life. “I just want to stay at home, curl up on the couch, and watch TV for the rest of my life!” argued a depressed and utterly confused ME. Today, I have uplifted my sister’s spirit and told her not to make the same mistake as I did. That she must go after her innate God-given desires....
It bothers me when the people closest to me do not understand my passion and dreams. I do understand however that it really isn’t about them, it’s about me and God. The time is not yet right for the vision to come to pass. I know I still have to be intensely prepared for it. Caring for children who had gone through tough experiences is a challenge, I concur. But that doesn’t mean...
Because it's Mr. Darcy.
He was lethargic when I first met him. Like his energy was slowly getting drained from his body. Knowing myself, I would have a hard time formulating a conversation with him. I scurried with my thoughts, scanning his little area for something to strike the first talk. It was a good ten minutes or so of dialogue, I would assume. Then I had to leave him to rest. Interestingly, before I went out of...

Enough with this worldly mindset!
I don’t want the money, I just want my purpose. While the rest of the world runs after these things, I’m perfectly content with wherever God takes me. I just want my purpose. I don’t want to waste my life doing something I was not called to do.
I’m having one of those days again, when everything hurts and nothing feels right. I can literally feel my heart aching; it’s puzzling how I’m not hyperventilating. I feel so much pressure from myself and from the Enemy. It’s blowing my mind, I wish it would just stop. I know God will not allow something that I will not be able to handle, but oh my God, my Lord. It is akin...

Foster Care Adoption →
advocate127: What is it? Foster care adoption is the adoption of children in state care for whom reunification with their birth parents is not possible for safety or other reasons. How does it work? It is arranged by state child welfare agencies or by private agencies under contract with the states; however, public agencies mainly handle it. Children may be adopted by their foster parents,...
