A lot has changed since discipleship training school, and my tumblr needed a facelift.
So I plan on making Coffee With The King my new full-time blog. It’s a place for all things coffee, Jesus, outdoors, and other beautiful things!
Possibly deleting Hope Like Golden Anchors in some time (possibly).
So, take a moment to check me out at coffeewiththeking.tumblr.com :) love you all!
It is carved with valleys. It covers vast oceans. It is freckled with forests and stained with painted canyons. It reached further than the eye can see and occupies every which corner and crevice of this Earth we inhabit.
You are standing on that welcome mat. At this very moment you reside at the threshold of the Kingdom if the Most High, and our Father is saying with favor and love, “Welcome home, my dear child.”
"Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter. "
Reasons to smile:
- God is good. Now and always.
- 13 days until I leave for California :)
- Tomorrow is Sunday! And 2 church services tomorrow!
- Kayaking a bunch this week.
- God has been teaching me patience and reckless trust in Him, through emotional trial. Can’t say it’s all been easy, but it’s so worth it to know that my heart is being refined to glorify Him.
- And cuz my face is on your dash!! Woohoo!
Have a wonderful night, everyone!!
Forget fame. Forget money. Forget all of that.
It’s garbage. It’s rust. It’s disposable.
Let me be a tool for the Lord’s glory and an earth-defined nobody. Then I will be a Father-defined somebody.
Not to test your patience, but because the end result’s value and worth is amplified with every minute you’re willing to sit tight in reverence to His will.
It’ll be hard. But I’m willing to wait.
I mean, heck. Jesus had 12 followers, and He turned out alright!
I’m talking about swearing and cursing. Coming from a girl who in high school had one of the filthiest mouths I’ve known, it is important that your surrender to Christ is in every aspect of yourself. This includes surrendering of what you choose to say or not say.
Essentially, it is part of your testimony. So treat your vocabulary with respect.
If it didn’t come from Christ’s mouth, it probably shouldn’t come from yours.
Thanks and God bless, my family! :)
Reply or inbox me any prayer requests and I would be more than happy to pray for you! :)
So may I pray for you?
The normal questions arose. “How are you?” “What have you been up to?”
After doing the asking, they returned the questions, and I told them about my quick-approaching move to California, discipleship training, and outreach in Vietnam.
They were pretty stunned, but greeted my statements with the most sincere remarks of encouragement, and love. They were two brothers I never knew I had.
God can come into someone’s life, and in a split-second, their entire lives can change, and transform. The metamorphosis of a spiritually-dead creature to a spiritually-alive disciple, with a heart thirsty for God, is one of the most beautiful things, both to witness as well as to experience firsthand.
Never count yourself out, if you feel you are yet to be transformed by God. He is there, waiting for you to reach out to Him in sincerity. He will wait for you as long as it takes- He wants you that bad!! He is crazy in love with you!!
Keep strong, brothers and sisters <3
How about you just go! And go with reckless abandon and bold intensity.
If it’s right, God will just increase your momentum.
If it’s wrong, He’ll close the door.
Simple as that! :)
Anyone who read my question from Tuesday about sex, this is an amazing message.
“The Truth About Sex and Your Soul”: part of the Money, Sex, and Power series from Neighborhood Church of Castro Valley.
Let me NEVER forget that. You’ve given me weapons against the enemy in the very hurts he’s tried to inflict on me.
I won’t be taken down by the likes of him! YOU are my protection, my love, my inheritance, and YOUR LOVE is my means of his destruction!
Let my heart be so full of satisfaction in You, that if I were ripped from my house, my friends, my comforts, that I would do nothing but praise You for allowing me to retain the knowledge and faith in Your Holy ways!
I will follow at your feet like a child- YOUR child!
Your love and sacrifice is my bread, my water, my shelter, my oxygen!
I need nothing else, but You!
