BUTTERFLIES OVER BUTTONS
BUTTERFLIES OVER BUTTONS
Every time she had a contraction, she made me want to cry.
This one is for all the baby mamas that feel the pain
while their man dies:
out of the relationship.
As soon as you start defending yourself you make your accuser your judge. Even Jesus was silent before the ones that accused Him. Leave yourself in the hands of the one that always judges righteously.
No matter what,you are a Child of God.
Sometimes I wish I had parents that understood the effects of things on their children.
No I wish this all the time. I wish my parents understood. But at least I do. At least I do. Now I have a new breath of motivation.
In scripture, many times people would come against Jesus and criticize Him. Many times it says, “Jesus answered them not a word.” He simply didn’t respond to His critics. He didn’t try to convince them to change their minds. He didn’t get upset because somebody was talking about Him. No, He just ignored it.
When people come against you and they’re jealous, trying to make you look bad, trying to discourage you, remember you’re in good company! Jesus was probably criticized more than anyone else. I love the fact that He didn’t try to explain Himself. He didn’t try to make everyone understand Him. He just stayed focused on what He was called to do. He simply ran His race.
Friend, Jesus set the example for you and me. We don’t have to try to win the approval of others. We have to understand that not everyone is going to understand us. Our focus should be on following God’s leading and let Him order our steps. The next time someone criticizes you, remember the example of Jesus. Overlook it, don’t get offended, and keep moving forward in the destiny God has for you!
When you make a mistake, unfortunately, the critics and naysayers come out of the woodwork. People will tell you, “You’re all washed up. It’s too late.” If you wear that label, it will keep you from the amazing future God has in store. God says, “My mercy is bigger than any mistake.” God says, “I can still get you to your destiny.” God says, “I will give you beauty for those ashes. I’ll pay you back double for the unfair things that have happened.” You wouldn’t be alive unless God had another victory in your future. Why don’t you take off the “washed up” label? Take off the “failure,” “guilty,” “condemned” labels and put on some new labels: redeemed, restored, forgiven, bright future, new beginning.
Always remember, you have been made in the image of Almighty God. God did not make any mistakes. You are the perfect size. You have the right personality, the right gifts, the right looks, the right skin color. You are not an accident. God designed you precisely for the race that is laid out for you. You are fully equipped for this life, and His mercy is greater than any mistake you could make. Embrace the truth and the victory He has in store for your future!
On Sunday I graduate from Purdue University after 4.5 long years, yet without explanation, I don’t feel anxious about the future anymore- even though I do not know at all what it will bring. People keep asking me, “What now?” To be honest- I don’t know, but all of a sudden I am no longer worried….
Father, today I come boldly to You. Thank You for giving me life through Your Son, Jesus. I surrender every area of my heart to You and ask that You make me whole and complete. Set me free and teach me to walk in Your ways in Jesus’ name. Amen.
We are here because Jesus Christ didn’t say in cold indifference, “Give them what they deserve. They brought it on themselves.”
Jesus Christ is the mercy of God.
And seeing us in our misery and need, He doesn’t just feel for us.
He takes the necessary action to relieve…
i am in love with this
