Forgiveness isn't just something we do, but how we live. It's the state of our hearts. It's extending the forgiveness we received from Jesus to others. by alisha

A prayer for a pure heat. This prayer is based on Psalm 51. Purity of the heart comes from recognizing how much we need Jesus to forgive and heal us of the wound of sin. Only his loving restoration makes us new again. When we ask for forgiveness – and when we forgive – our hearts are made pure. by danella.fischbach

Zacchaeus In the Tree Waiting for Jesus Rice Krispie Treats kids go CRAZY for these! My wife has been put in charge of providing snacks for our Church's Children's chapel. This week we went over the story of Zacchaeus, the tax collector that waited in the tree just to get a look at Jesus. It's a long complicated story about social hierarchy, expectations of how we will be treated, repentance, forgiveness and acceptance. Kind of a lot for 4 year olds. But the kids sure loved the treats... by juana

Detaching from abusive people isn't selfish! Detaching is a tool we can use to give us the necessary space to heal the wounds of narcissistic abuse. We can shift up and out of our bodies the beliefs that it is selfish and move into an area of unconditional self love and let others be themselves. If you would like to know how to do this too, join my free resources by clicking on the image. #narcissisticabuse #recoveryfromabuse #toxicrelationships #narcissists by willie

We've all heard the saying that the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer, but what would happen if the poor knew they could do exactly what the rich does so they wouldn't be poor anymore?  Once we realize that & our minds expand to see that it's really true, nothing can stop us from creating this reality for ourselves instead of just watching others create it.  It starts with you making one decision.  #AskHow by priscilla

Forgiveness.  It's the hardest thing to give away, & the last thing on your mind today.  It always goes to those that don't deserve. It's the opposite of how you feel, when the pain they caused is just to real. It takes everything you have just to say the word...Forgiveness. Show me how to love the unlovable.  Show me how to reach the unreachable. Help me now to do the impossible. Forgiveness. by marylou

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

DELAY IS NOT DENIAL - I want to encourage you this day, don’t be disappointed at what appears to be a lack of results in prayer. We don’t know what the Lord is doing on our behalf to answer our prayers. We cannot see it, but rest assured He is working it out. What the Lord requires from us is faith to believe that the Word of God is true. Just because you don’t FEEL the answer isn't coming, don’t let the enemy make you BELIEVE your prayer has been denied.

We can't get distracted and lose focus on the events around us and if we aren't careful bitterness will turn our eyes just to the problems. We need eyes and ears of Compassion that turn our eyes to the people. Jesus looked passed the problems to see the people. Compassion is love, mercy, and kindness. Compassion creates community. Where there is compassion, Jesus lives. Where there is forgiveness, Jesus loves. Pass on His love in this same way by alisha

Waiting to some means sitting on the sidelines passively but that isn't what we are to do as we wait for GOD to bring our mate. HE wants us to grow, to become more of who we are in CHRIST JESUS. As we develop the characteristics of CHRIST in our lives, we become strong, caring and compassionate. We learn to trust and hope and love more deeply. Aren't those all characteristics of a godly wife? Relationships aren't about what we get out of them but what we bring to them. ~Annie by dorothea

We want to cultivate compassion and love for when we interact with others. But further, we want to think about the impacts that our words, actions, and purchases have on other beings. #ahimsa #yoga #yamas #nonviolence by Eggnog
