Things You’ll Never Say in Heaven

Things You Will Never Say In Heaven:
1.”This is it?!”
2. “But I don’t want to sing for the King.”
3. “I’m so tired!”
4. “Can you turn these lights up? Hard to see in here.”
5. “Jesus was just a good man.”
6. “I think I’m getting sick.”
7. “How long do I have to stay?”
8. “Heaven is so boring!”
9. “These people are getting on my nerves.”
10. “I should never have become a Christian. ” #heaven #jesus #streetsofgold#joy #peace #kingdom #revelation

Persecuted Church

Tomorrow, we get to go to church publicly. We are allowed to choose where we worship. We will open Bibles without fear of imprisonment. We will sing-loudly-without fear. We will wear our cross necklaces, rings, & t-shirts that identify us as Christians. STOP & THINK OF OUR FREEDOM. Now, may we get on our knees & pray for those who publicly & privately that suffer for the Gospel in ways we can’t imagine. Pray for them to have enough to eat, for jobs to care for their families, for homes to live in, for their health, their strength, their marriages, their children and for their freedom to worship God. There is more worldwide Christian persecution now than ever before in history. May we pray faithfully for our brothers & sisters, give to ministries that help them, and stand with them as they endure for the Name Above Every Name. #persecutedchurch #persecutedChristians #church #faith#pray#voiceofthemartyrs #heroes #realcelebrities #heroines

Mama Bear

This necklace could be my favorite Mother’s Day gift ever from my husband & kids! I’ve walked the hallowed halls of motherhood for over 15 years now, yet the name “Mama” still touches my heart in deep places. There were years of infertility, miscarriages, & waiting where I suspected “Mama” would never be my name. The women who are part of the never-desired Sisterhood of Infertility will tell you we all lived in the “Why God?” zone. We all told ourselves, “Don’t hope this month-then the grief won’t be as bad.” (This is impossible because our very nature as Christians is designed to hope.) As my husband & I trudged that valley, we learned that God may not take pain away but the Man of Sorrows will offer Himself as companion & comfort. A life of faith will always be lived out in the bizarre tension of accepting the pain God allows and YET praying a way out of it! Many days, I still marvel at God blessing me with the honor of mothering 2 lives. Many women will never take Mother’s Day for granted. I don’t think we’re meant to. #mothersday#childrenareagift #momlife #thankGod
