{Prayers in the midst of Impossible} “Eph. 3: 20-21” is engraved on the back of our wedding bands. I had it engraved on Adam’s. He had it engraved on mine. Neither of us realized the other had chosen a verse, much less the same one, until we walked away from the altar as man and wife. . Years later, the Lord had done not only immeasurably more than all we could have asked or imagined, but also impossibly more. God brought us through impossible brokenness and pain - we didn’t just make it to the other side, we experienced wonders too many to count (Psalm 40: 5). We didn’t just survive, we started to thrive. . “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matt. 19: 26). --------------------------------------------------------- [Application] Paul says that we can pray “for this reason.” What reason? Verse 12 is a good summary: “In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” Go before the Lord today with bold faith and assurance that comes through the saving work of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. You cannot fathom God’s immeasurable love for you or His unparalleled ability to do the impossible in your life. --------------------------------------------------------- {Ephesians 3: 14-21} For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. --------------------------------------------------------- 📷🎨: @karenmarcum_art #birminghamartist #southernartist #bhm

The authenticity of God manifested in us will change the way humanity sees themselves and God. ❤️ You and I walking and living a true authentic life free from guilt, shame, fear and lies invite others to taste God’s goodness. 👣 This is how we are to live as salts and cause others to crave the God in us. 🏃🏾‍♀️ That’s why Satan will keep us in fear, in the past so we never FLOURISH to entice others to give their lives to God. . . . . . @elizabethjoy79 @racquel_pinto @kha2undi 💜

The Attitude of Christ⠀ ⠀ …that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now even more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.… Philippians 2:11

{Prayers in the midst of Impossible} The person who gives God all the praise for His {glorious, rich, lavish} grace... The person who never stops giving thanks... The person who keeps asking... *This* is the person who receives: wisdom + revelation + enlightenment, a growing relationship with Christ, a rich + glorious hope, incomparably great power + mighty strength. . This is Paul. This can be us as well. . “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matt. 19: 26). --------------------------------------------------------- [Application] How is your consistency in prayer? How is your patience and perseverance? If we saw God as the only one that matters, the only one worthy of praise, the giver of all good things, and the supplier of every need... our prayer lives might look a little different. #preachingtothechoir --------------------------------------------------------- {Ephesians 1 // verses 15-21 shown here} For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. --------------------------------------------------------- 📷🎨: @karenmarcum_art #birminghamartist #southernartist #bhm . . . . .

Comparison has a way of creeping up on us. Bible’s, coffee mugs, and fresh flowers beautifully styled in a photo made to be framed. In an instant covetousness and envy become our friends and we are left looking around at our own portion with discontentment. Before we know it our thoughts lead us into sinful actions and our pride will let us think it is okay. We are a sinful and wretched people and the only solution to it is the gospel. • Christ was the perfect sacrifice. He died for our sins of covetousness, envy, and pride. Because of Christ’s finished work on the cross we are free from comparison. We don’t have to have perfectly styled Instagram photos, because we have a perfect Savior who loves us and died to save us from eternal damnation. Rather than comparing ourselves to our followers, let us strive to look more like Jesus. . . . . #gospelhope #goodnewsfeed #preachthegospel #makedisciples #wellwateredwomen #thedailyco #savedbygrace #gritandvirtue #thegoodnews #Faithbloggers #christianblogger #risenmotherhood #shereadstruth #hereadstruth

Do you have a situation where forgiveness seems impossible? Maybe you're thinking, "I just can't forgive this person for what they’ve done to me. It's too painful to deal with...I’ve been hurt too many times... This person has hurt me too deeply." The power and the beauty of the transformed Christian life is that, "It is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." (Philippians 2:13) It will never be the depth of love that causes you to forgive heartless acts and attitudes. It is only through the love of Christ Jesus that you will be able to forgive completely.❤️

Yesterday on our way to Church my 3 year old daughter Said :” look mommy the moon (completely fascinated) she Said , does the moon come with us to Church? “😍 I Said Yes of course did you know that God made the moon and the stars He calls them all by name ❤️🙏🏽🕊 On our way back home she Said:” mommy “: i want to sit on the moon” I giggled a little did not want to disappoint her but Said:” you cannot sit on the moon sweety, :” she was totally convinced that she could though. 🙈😩❤️ cute ! Mama :” can the moon come with us to our home ? I Said :” Yes it Will be there when we arrive ,she Said:” also inside the house ???? 🌙 I Said :” Well , as we enter the house the moon Will stay outside in the sky she was not pleased to hear that a little sad too, she lightly panicked when the moon dissapeared for a while because of the trees we were passing ....💕😩mommy where did the moon go ? I Said:” its still here even if you dont see it it has not left the sky.”in short a moment you Will see it again Today as i picked her up from school she asked me :” mommy where did the moon go??? I told her the moon was sleeping , and the Sun was now wide awake she Said :” No the moon is not sleeping it is playing. 🙈i Said ok ❤️ ? What makes you say that? She pointed at the sky and Said look mommy:” there is the moon it is not sleeping it is playing, i looked at the sky and indeed there it was looking like a banana, I Said:” you are totally right there it is i guess the moon is indeed not sleeping at all . She smiled from ear to ear and she Said , Yes ❤️😊 the moon is not sleeping the moon is playing. ❤️God never sleeps , He is always working He is always there, Sometimes you think He is not because you dont ‘ “see”’ Him but in a short moment you Will realise He has never left you and was there all along. The Bright and Morning star , Light of the world Stands at your door and Knocks if you let Him in (inside your house) He Will come and have supper with You ❤️ and give you a smile from ear to ear ❤️ because He thinks You are to die for 🕊😊💯 🕊❤️🙏🏽! #conversationswithkids #kids #thinking #educate #yourself #onyourkids #revelation #gospel #thegospel #bible #thegoodnews #Jesus

“And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, "Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?" And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:39-41‬ ‭ESV‬‬ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #Godisgood #bookofMark #windandsea #beachscene #christianartist #canvaspainting #rawedges #taketime #calmthesea #calmthewinds #christianartwork #createdaily #pursuepretty #pursuepassion #breathe #theGoodNews

“A life of faith is not a life of one glorious mountaintop experience after another, like soaring on eagles’ wings, but is a life of day-in and day-out consistency; a life of walking without fainting (see Isaiah 40:31)... it is a faith that has been tried and proved and has withstood the test.” - Oswald Chambers Currently I’m in a bit of a waiting & listening season. Learning to wait on the Lord is never easy, but I know that in these times is when He does some of His greatest work and I have felt the roots being tended to and deepened. What are some experiences you’ve had and lessons you’ve learned in a season of waiting?
