09.21.18 — Different
Old habits and patterns can keep us consumed in a status quo. Like rote equations, soon we rattle them off without a second thought.
Memorizing scripture in Sunday School felt no different. For example, I knew John 3:16 as a child, but without depth of meaning, it sounded like syllables flowing off the tongue, not dripping from the heart, especially when that love challenged my belief. Yeah, I recited it as a child, but before I came to accept it as an adult, did I truly believe God could love me beyond my faults?
Have you ever stopped and listened to the words you profess? When opposition strikes, do they match what you believe? In a selfless act, God sacrificed Heaven’s priceless treasure to redeem Heaven’s once priceless creation so we could choose to become different. Real. Changed.
Here Micah Tyler discover how being “Different” changes us if we choose to step out of the status quo.

Many people ask me who my main influences are. I have a very specific list, which is long and always expanding, but... I do have my holy trinity. I never had traditional lessons, I learned guitar the cool (right) way. I learned their songs.... by ear.... I can play all of Al Pitrelli’s solos, from his work with Alice Cooper, all TSO stuff, even the Megadeth and Asia solos. His playing is what started me, and he is still pushing me to be better (literally). And Paul Gilbert, I learned every song of his by ear, every solo album, Spaceshipone, Get out of my yard, fuzz universe, King of clubs... etc. I would sit for hours and hours watching his DvDs. The reason I have insane alternate picking speed and accuracy is from working on his songs. And Yngwie, of course, In highschool I could play his rising force album start to finish. When I experienced seeing his Japan philharmonic orchestra DVD, that made it for me. The perfection. I figured out sweeps and soaring vibrato from him, also I scallop my frets I have many other influences, like Jason Becker, and Warren DeMartini. DragonForce played a vital role in my development. Just too much, its all just amazing. #guitar#changed#my#life#practice#paulgilbert#alpitrelli#yngwie#shred#guitarist#bcrich#ibanez#ernieball#kings#holytrinity#lessons#master
You only appreciate this type of love ❤️ when you’re the one needing it the most! When I needed it the most, God sent some people into my life...and the they became my fam. They showed me what it truly means to be a Christian and to show His love. Today, I’m grateful for all those who are in my close circle. Today, I’m thankful for my fam. No one will ever know the impact you had on my life. Most importantly, I give glory to God who is the head of my life! He’s allowed for these great ppl to enter and join in my life. #lovemahfam#fam#love#christ#jesus#changed#friendship

Recently I promised myself that I would try my hardest to get into shape instead of just complaining about it. -I’ve stopped eating shit food (most of time time). I’ve started cooking more! -I wake my ass up at 5am every weekday morning and workout!
-I drink lots more water!
-I started using oils and face masks!
And making more time for myself.
I’ve always loved gymnastics and so I’ve started again. So here’s a picture of my best handstand. (It will get better in time). This picture makes me look tall I’m only 5’3 😣

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”- Romans 12:1
@thecatlvt is one of my #heroes and you should #follow her. Her work with #neonates is #groundbreaking and has #changed how many of us treat them. She also #advocates for #proper#medical#standards in #veterinarymedicine which is huge with all of the “Dr This or That” on TV showing sub-standard care as the norm when it is nothing but malpractice and laziness.

Having STERILE surgical gowns, surgery packs and dental instruments ensures your pet is not being exposed to unnecessary pathogens while a procedure is being performed. Cutting corners NOT using a sterile gown and instruments that are either autoclave or gas treated is poor medicine, NOT a money saver for the right reason. Cold sterilization which is the use of a liquid bath is frowned upon as it is not a true sterile technique. It also opens the doors for a practice to use dental drill burs multiple times(YUCK) on different patients, reuse suture material(YUCK again..) and puts your pet at a higher risk for infection. Ask your vet practice on their sterilization techniques when dropping your pet off for a procedure.
Il y a un temps pour tout….. Il y a le temps de la découverte et de l’imagination ; vient ensuite le temps de l’arrogance et des chimères ; puis le temps de la désillusion et de l’amertume ; et enfin celui de la résignation et de l’humilité. Pour chacune de ces périodes, le bonheur, la joie, l’amour, la tristesse, l’ennui et autres états de nos âmes nous accompagnent en s’entremêlant, s’entrechoquant, et se séparant parfois tel un filigrane. Selon le temps dans lequel nous vivons, nous réalisons notre dessein pour lequel nous nous distribuons notre propre rôle…Serons-nous forcément des acteurs fabuleux de l’histoire que nous allons monter de toutes pièces ? Pas toujours, tout dépendra de ceux et celles qui rejoindront notre histoire. Il aura fallu attendre ma 34ème année pour enfin accepter de défier ce qui m avait été ordonné depuis ma naissance parfois avec amour et bienveillance, d autres fois violemment et dans l indifférence de mes souffrances #croireensoi#prendresavieenmain#courage#fierte#bienveillance#vivre#accepter#jouer#positiveattitude#changer#life#instalife#changed
How amazing scripture is! I loved this in 2 Timothy chapter 3. "...All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.". First, I love the imagery of scripture being god-breathed! How do we equip ourselves to be the best servant we can be for God? One of the best ways is through reading scripture. But it doesnt just teach us. What stood out to me is that it should also correct and rebuke us. You know that feeling...when you read a verse or section and say "ouch..." and know that God is working on your heart about something. God loves us so much and wants to teach and correct us. When we read scripture, the Holy Spirit will speak to us in different ways based on what is going on in our lives or because He wants to point something out to us. He is equipping us each time he points something out and even when he is correcting me I need to be thankful for that! Lord, thank you for your word and how you speak to us through your word. Open my spiritual eyes to see what you want me to see and understand as I read.
What jumps out at you in 2 Timothy chapter 3? Lots to take in with this short chapter!
