Tonight, as I went into my son’s room to rock him, I couldn’t help but revel in the extra time with him. -
As he repeatedly attempts to get comfortable I ask if he wants me to lay him in his bed. My heart smiles when he says no, as I know these nights are limited. -
His little voice fills the room as he has to tell me all that is on his mind before he can drift off. Instead of shushing him, I acknowledge and confirm what he has to say. And then he slowly calms, his breath becomes heavy, and just like that he’s out. -
I can’t help but think, maybe God revels in those moments with us too. As we lay in bed, reeling through the moments of the day. The questions that go unanswered. The thoughts of if we’ve done enough. The uncertainty of relationships, finances, work, etc. But yet, instead of shushing us, God is right there listening. Experiencing the hurt and joy, the fears and hopes with us. Waiting for us to come to Him. When we are willing to sit with Him and cast all our cares onto Him, He will bring peace. A peace in knowing that tomorrow’s another day. A peace in knowing that despite our failures, doubts, insecurities, God is always working things in our life for our good. A peace that brings rest. -
Just as I sit awake watching And protecting Myles, God is also right there watching and protecting His children. Unlike me though, God doesn’t rest. He is ever present. Always at the ready to uphold us. Protect us. Forgive us. Guide us. Love us.
Support this brother @mrjasonowilson . He is definitely helping the community where it needs the help the most: the relationship between a father and his son. We need to be better and heal together if we want a better world for the next generation. #childrenofgod#healingtogether#buildabetterworld#mrjasonwilson#cave313#Repost@mrjasonowilson

Healing the trauma associated with the "father-wound" is imperative for a man to truly be whole. During this @cave313 Initiation Test, my friend had to push through his father-wound for his beloved son to pass. It’s amazing how we as fathers who didn't grow up with our fathers—still feel the wounds of not recieving our their affirmation and love. Salute to the father in the short video for breaking a curse before it could take root in the next generation.

There is an I from whom all things flow.
There is an I from which all beings proceed
There is an I that is the begining and the end
There for I AM
6 WEEKS!! Even till now I still can’t believe I have 3 boys. When I put Jacob and Lucas together it’s unbelievable. And then I see Miqueas, my first born, growing so fast and learning so much. I am really blessed to have them. Even on tough moments when I feel like giving up, they are my inspiration to keep on going and make my todays be better than yesterday’s. It’s triple the work but I do love challenges. So I challenge myself everyday that I can do better and keep going. May Our Lord continue to bless Us🙏🏼 .
“For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11
“Es verdad que ninguna disciplina al presente parece ser causa de gozo, sino de tristeza; pero después da fruto apacible de justicia a los que en ella han sido ejercitados.” Hebreos 12:11
Ps. Ignore Lucas’ onesie, we are not a fan of broncos🙅🏻♀️ lol it was a gift from his grandparents when they went to Denver😄

In Christ Alone, My Hope Is Found
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand. •
Through the storms & seasons of life which are guaranteed to come, the lord is our rock & firm foundation. When the rain falls & the floods of life come with fierce winds, We still firm & unshaken when our foundation is built on the Lord.
Whatever you are going through, you are not alone, when we are at our weakest the Lord is our strength.
This is You
For my beautiful Savior, 🌈✝️👑🔥☁️💕💫
A grace so pure
A love so deep
A suffering so selfless
A lamb worthy of everything
A lion roaring in power
A heart so beautiful
A troubled soul
A peaceful Spirit
Oh Beautiful Savior
I’m yours forever
You reign ! You reign!
No more pain
The Author of a story
The King of Glory
Royalty beyond words
A Warrior with a sword
You have broken every Chain
Name above all Names
I will sing your praises
For you have defeated the grave
Hallelujah for you are Yeshua
Your mercy is measureless
The Cross has spoken
As we are forgiven
We are now children of God
Praise the one who has set us free
You are our Redeemer
This is You
Mama watches me closely each time I walk toward the road. The usual motorcycles make her less nervous than this interesting load. A bus bumps up and down, filled with white people that wave. I've never seen anyone without my skin color, so this memory I will save. They pull out cameras and phones to help remember the "little nugget." But even with fancy pictures taken, they may soon forget. +
The white people may wonder about how I live, but in this snapshot moment there is a lot to miss. I am one of the lucky ones, I have a house with walls and a roof. Mama works hard to keep things nice, the broom in her hand is your proof. Despite my many blessings I still need better nourishment, but Mama provides me with plenty of smiles and her own sort of encouragement. The chances of me getting sick are more than just high, but my Daddy works hard and for me will try to provide. +
I don't have anything fancy to play with, just this scooter made of wood, but it has taken me on many adventures, making me smile more than it should. Other kids live nearby, and sometimes I get to play. Our games may seem simple, but they could entertain us all day. +
I may never know good English, and school could be a struggle. Yet I love speaking my language, and participating in all things cultural. I will learn pride for my country, looking past the fact that it is poor. I will remember smiling white people, and invite them back for more. +
Now and in the future I will display a perfect sort of love, because when you have nothing, you know love is more than enough. The white people have disappeared, and I will continue on with my day. What an interesting sight; I wonder if anything about me they will say.

“Your GREATEST contribution to the Kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise”
The most important job I have is to be the BEST MOM I can be, NOT perfect, but trying my absolute best to be a positive example for my boys. I want my boys to see:
💙 My love for Jesus
💙 Mommy & Daddy enjoying Quality Time Together
💙 Healthy Living (working out 💪🏼)
I could keep going!! I read a simple book called “Grace Not Perfection” and it was a great reminder that us mommas need a lot more GRACE!! If we don’t slow down, we’ll miss this precious season of life! .
What can you do today to ensure you’re living a life full of GRACE and not perfection?

You can’t fight ME.. #GODspeaks
I was just praying over myself and talking to GOD about sexual purity, that I don’t want to fall.. Part of me felt like I will fall and GOD said to me “YOU CANNOT FIGHT ME”… ***HE spoke to the issue that it cannot fight HIM***
Whatever you’re going through, cannot fight GOD, there is nothing too hard for HIM to fight against, depression, suicide thoughts, debt, masturbation, sickness, singleness, barrenness, sexual immorality and many more… Go hard against all issues in life knowing nothing can fight GOD!
For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37
God, You know me
So I trust You with my life, yeah
No fire can burn me
No battle can turn me
No mountain can stop me
'Cause You hold my hand
And I'm walking in Your victory
'Cause Your power is within me
No giant can defeat me

Seperti yang Kau Ingini .
bukan dengan barang fana
kau membayar dosaku
dengan darah yg maha
tiada noda dan celah
bukan dengan emas perak
kau menebus diriku
oleh segenap kasih
ku telah mati dan tinggalkan
jalan hidupku yg lama
dan tak berarti lagi
hidup ini kuletakkan
pada mesbahmu ya tuhan
jadilah padaku seperti
yg kau ingini

As we head into the full fledged toddler years, one of the areas I am constantly seeking and trying to prepare for is how to discipline and disciple well. -
As parents, we often want our child’s immediate response and obedience. When we don’t receive it, it can make us feel like we’ve done something wrong or haven’t done enough to shape our child’s behaviors or that we are being judged for it. -
However, Ive been reminded lately that I myself don’t always (or possibly ever) have complete and immediate obedience to my Creator. And sometimes that’s not what He asks of us, but more that we would come to this obedience after thought and on our own accord. -
As I step daily into the trenches of motherhood, I pray that I would be continually reminded of this: That my worth doesn’t rely on my son’s ability to listen immediately when I ask something of him. But more importantly, I provide grace in the space he needs to come there on his own, with guidance and modeling, and seek my true worth in the one who gave it all for me. -
Check out the @dontmomalone podcast for weekly encouragement on raising your kids with your eyes set on heaven.
Shout out to parents - kids of all ages are welcome at Hilltop! ⭐️ We’ll have secure check-in, trained volunteers, and an interactive curriculum for your kiddos. We can’t wait to meet your families at Grand Opening on Oct 21! Who’s coming?! #hilltopkids
I caught this moment of perfection a month ago. This drives home just how much God desires for us to love one another because I cannot find the words to describe how deeply moved I am watching my children love each other and play together. #children#childrenofgod#siblings#loveoneanother#hornsbyhouse
You fall and make mistakes; you do things you regret. You understand the feeling of dejection when you give in to temptation in a moment of weakness and feel like things could never be made right again. You might have felt at one point that God is angry with you. You might even have doubted that you have received forgiveness.
In those moments, it might be difficult to remember that God still loves you.
But God knows you better than you know yourself. The fact that you sorrow over your sins and are determined to change is an honorable mindset that God loves. (Psalm 51:17) He is waiting for you to come to Him to get the help and power you need to overcome! (Hebrews 4:16)
Follow the link in our bio @activechristianity to read a compilation of paraphrased Bible verses presented in the form of a letter of love from God to you. Remember that God is close, and is extremely interested in you, personally!
It's time to live,not to sleep.
Living in your imagination is the same as sleeping,you're in the same place but a lot happens in your mind,living in your imagination is also like a wall in the middle of the path,there's no way out unless you release yourself from this lie. Dreams are made to live in real life and not in our head,that's why we fight for it with prayers and faith. Don't let the world blind your sight,with God next to you,you can see the truth and you can live it. You're not a movie,you're not a star,you are not a fake thing,so stop pretending to be who you are not,because who you are is way better than this whole pretending and imagining thing. You are precious to God, you are loved by God. Hold on to that truth and always remember: Life is a journey and a gift so make everything count,you're not dead,God gave you life and it's good to be free from bondage,& it's a blessing to be alive.
Preach The Word
Lord send me some people who want to make music that touches and heals the world. I’m not into politicking and gimmicks and I’m always open to create. We got to remember who the gifts came from and use them for good not evil. 🙏🏽💕🎵
23 Before the coming of this faith,[j] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. #Galatians23

Livet som småbarnsfamilie, altså 😍😄
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, ♡
So thankful for you- Alyssa!! God has been working out miracles on our behalf and we’ve been learning lessons through all of the trials. All in all, this friendship is going deeper & I am so happy I get to do life with you!
