MIRACLES IN MINA: When we’d made ihram and gone to Mina, all hopes, dreams and desires to be fulfilled at Arafah, I was overwhelmed how we managed to make wudu with tiny water bottles; prayed and slept in congested tents; and awaited our miracles to manifest. Seeing sunset and scribbling my duas down was most memorable, as was meeting a Turkish sister who had come on her second Hajj as her husband was not “ready” on her first pilgrimage; seemed miraculous she was called again, I pray I can respond again with Labbayk. 🕋 #miracles#dhulhijjah#hajj#throwback#godisgreat#alhamdulillah
It’s so easy to place our hope in a longed-for baby. When this longing is unfulfilled, it feels too hard to be hopeful. How can we regain hope? How do we walk through seasons of sorrow, through childless days and years, and refuse to give up hope?
It’s helpful to distinguish between worldly hope and the supernatural hope God provides. When the world hopes, it is often self-serving. Worldly hope is more of a wish than an actual, deeply rooted hope. We might express temporal, worldly hope with statements such as, “I hope I find a parking spot at the grocery store,” or “I hope my friends remember my birthday.” While those aren’t bad things per se, we have to see them for what they are: wishes for temporary pleasures or benefis.
Theologian R. C. Sproul says, “Hope is not simply a wish . . . rather, it is that which latches on to the certainty of the promises of the future that God has made.” While it’s perfectly natural to wish to get pregnant or to be a mother, we must recognize that those outcomes won’t in themselves satisfy our souls. When discussing the hope that will last—our eternal, sustaining hope—it’s helpful to substitute the word “hope” with the word “know”. This exercise helps ensure I’m not hoping in something temporal, but that my hope is deeply rooted in what I know to be true of God. The following statements show the true hope that flows from our faith in Christ:
I know the Lord will be faithful.
I know this trial isn’t the end of my story.
I know the Lord loves me.
I know the Lord won’t forsake me, even in my hardest season.
I know the Lord sees me when I cry.
Real hope is rooted in God, and because God never changes, neither will our source of hope.
Rest in the fact that you have an eternal hope!
Happy Sunday and good morning beautiful people, did you PRAY? How many times do we find ourselves somewhere thinking were in the wrong place? So many times we're just looking at things the wrong way. In every negative situations there is always a positive footprint. Sometimes we just need to step away and reevaluate the situation and then things will make sense. This pass week I've witness so much greatness from God and I'm so humble and honored by his handy works. I was viewing things from the wrong angle and when I started to view it right I was amazed. I'm here to declare to anyone out there who has any doubts about praying please don't. When your day comes no one can stop your blessings. His promises are set in stones and he'll never break them. No matter what PLEASE fo not give nor lose hope. Keep on moving and praying in faith. God is LOVE BYQUEENB #keepon#moveonward#nostopping#hewill#trustingod#yourdaywillcome#hispromiise#miracles#godislove#time#masterplan
Our Heavenly Father wants us to have a personal relationship with his son Jesus Christ.
The accumulation of stuff is not how we get to Heaven; but by having a relationship that is loving, kind and generous to others.
You can’t buy Gods love. You must give Love.
Don’t take your eyes off the prize; it’s not here on Earth. We are only traveling through — foreigners on this Earth.
Our treasure is in Heaven and in His World in his Kingdom.
Wake up to HOPE.
Had is madly in Love with You!! 🙏🏼
My Koroni 😍🏖️🙏 #nofilter Today, I relocated from Athens to Koroni. I find mySelf in Paradise! What a blessed path is woven when we trust and follow our noses ✨ .
I am infinitely in the everlasting flow of divine abundance. The abundance is unlimited. My wildest dreams are matched and surpassed before my eyes. I see opportunity everywhere. It is up to me to speak my truth and align with the highest good. I choose! .
Blessings On Blessings. I’ve been unable to follow through on business goals this month due to personal circumstances. A few weeks ago a loss in the family may have mentally and emotionally drained me. But, God is Great. We’ve experienced remarkable events that have made this loss easier to bear.

Business is a soul path. At every stage, it calls you to liberate yourself from whatever binds you — outworn beliefs, stories about who you are and what you can create, ancestral agreements about the nature of the world and your place in it.⠀
Anything that attempts to shrink the vastness of your soul into a story, template or pattern that is — inevitably — too small for you, must be relinquished, so you can fully inhabit your life and your place in the world.⠀
This isn't easy. When you've been immersed in a particular story or world view for much of your life — especially if your identity is shaped around it — it can be hard to see that it is just a story. Hard to look beyond it to see that there are an infinite number of other stories you could choose to shape and to live by.⠀
Not all stories bind you. True stories liberate you. Like true desire, they are the voices of your soul, calling you to a fuller, more creative, more abundant life.⠀

Such a great reminder to be present and focus on being in the flow instead of worrying about things you can’t control anyway ✨
Obviously take action and follow your heart, but only focus on what you can do instead of thinking about things that are out of your control 💖

Santuário de Nossa Senhora das Graças em Paris.
História: uma freira chamada Catarina Labouré afirmou que a Virgem lhe aparecera como uma figura cercada de luz, com um pé sobre um globo branco e o outro pisando a cabeça de uma serpente com manchas amarelas. Nas mãos, disse Catarina, a Virgem levava uma esfera dourada que representava o mundo, - imagens fortemente relacionadas com o que se lê no Livro das Revelações (Apocalipse), no qual se lê que uma “Mulher vestida de Sol” luta contra Satanás pelo destino das almas humanas. Catarina Labouré contou que a Virgem lhe prevenira de que o mundo estava prestes a ser dominado por “males de toda espécie”, e também relatou que Maria Santíssima a encarregara de mandar cunhar uma medalha que reproduzisse a forma com que ela se apresentara: por isso, essa aparição ficou conhecida como a de Nossa Senhora das Graças ou da Medalha Milagrosa.
As aparições da Santíssima Virgem Maria a Santa Catarina Labouré, em 1830, marcaram, portanto, o início de um ciclo de grandes revelações marianas. Um ciclo que prosseguiu em La Salette (1846), em Lourdes (1858) e culminou em Fátima, Portugal (1917).Em suas aparições, Nossa Senhora das Graças confiou-nos mensagens que se mantêm muito atuais, especialmente em nosso tempo, marcado pelas grandes desordens sociais e políticas. Por isso, vale a pena conhecer essas mensagens, que foram significativas naquele momento histórico, para o nosso conhecimento e, principalmente, para a nossa vivência da fé, pois, nessas mensagens de Nossa Senhora, aprendemos o equilíbrio perfeito de uma espiritualidade radicada e centrada em Jesus Cristo, ao mesmo tempo, no amor por Maria.
(O fiel católico - Canção Nova)
Para mim, que sou devota dessa aparição, este dia foi um momento muito lindo e cheio de paz. GRATIDÃO🙏💙Ⓜ
Seeing the world in colour. Being alive is a miracle. Being able to travel and see new things is also a miracle. This colourful arrangement of floating umbrellas on a recent trip lifted my mood and put a smile on my face. Being in the moment allows us to capture these miracles in our minds and on our cameras 📷. I CHOOSE to see my life and the world around me as miracles, allowing me to feel blessed and grateful every day. 🙏❤️
