A New Flame

We have all of these things in our lives that we have wrong. We focus too much on who people see us as. “Will I be popular if I say this or act that way?” We care too much about being right or finding the wrong things. “Will they know that they’re wrong if I share this post or protest this law?” We have our priorities screwed up.

These things that we do would never save a life or speak the name of Christ!

Luke 6:27 says, “But I say this to those who are listening to me: Love. Your. Enemies. Do good to the ones who hate you, and do all this without expecting anything in return.”

Do this because-

Mark 12:31 says, “The second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself. These are the greatest.”

We so often talk and act without thinking. It is such a blessing that grace and forgiveness can’t run out. If it had, we would have used it all up already. Thankfully, we still get up every morning, and Christ says, “I still have more, still have more.” There is such a life-giving power in the grace of God. Shouldn’t we use that to our benefit? We only have one card to play, and that card should be love. We have no excuse but to spread the love of God to everyone. That is the duty of a Christian. That is the basis of the song. That is the request of God.

Challenge yourself to watch what you say, share, and do. Let it be love to guide your actions.

Let it be love.

Experiencing God’s love means experiencing that you’ve been unreservedly accepted, approved, and loved

God’s love is like a middle schooler with axe. It not only engulfs you, but also the people around you

Psalm 63:3

Psalm 63:3

al-thaqalayn
This isn’t something I’d normally post, but I thought it would serve as a friendly reminder. I’ve seen plenty of Christians complaining about people comparing them to Westboro Baptist or other repulsive groups. It is the exact same thing when you compare Muslims to the two groups above.
They may not believe what we believe, but we are to treat others as we would want to be treated. We are to show respect as we think we deserve. We are to love as Jesus loved.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Straight from my Psychology book.

Straight from my Psychology book.

Your mistakes don’t define you.
Your looks don’t define you.
Other people don’t define you.
Anonymous asks don’t define you.
Rumors and gossip don’t define you.
Your anxiety and self esteem issues don’t define you.

The only One who can define you is the One who designed you.

If you need someone to talk to

You can kik me at: watchmysign
My ask is always open, but I hit ask limit a lot.

If you’re feeling sad, bad, or anything, I’m here if you need a friend, or want to talk or complain/vent/cry. I know it’s hard to make that first move, but trust me, it’s no problem at all.

I’m here.
Much Love.

Pray for Relapse Victims

Say a special prayer for the people who may have relapsed tonight. I was messaging a few, but I hit ask limit.

Everyone is battling something, and relapse doesn’t mean you failed, it means you can start again. It’s going to be tough, but I promise it’ll get better. You did it once, and you can do it again. Best of luck to everyone. may God bless you all.
