Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not.
Max Lucado (via godmoves)
Do you know what God is doing in your city? Do you have His heart and perspective for the people around you and the places you go to or drive by every day? It changes everything.
NEVER underestimate the POWER of prayer! When people cry out to Him, He hears. Even if it is just a whisper. ~Janet
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]
"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
I have several cousins who are adopted. One of my cousins was teased horribly in grade school becuase word got out that she was. Her response - my mom picked me. I was chosen. That shut them up.
When you go to war against your enemies and see horses, chariots and armies bigger than yours - do not be afraid. For the Lord your God who bought you out of Egypt will be with you.
Deuteronomy 20:1 (via proverbs31v25)
Whenever your heart starts to be anxious about the future, preach to your heart and say, ‘Heart, who do you think you are to be afraid of the future and nullify the promise of God? No, heart, I will not exalt myself with anxiety. I will humble myself in peace and joy as I trust this precious and great promise of God—He cares for me.’
