“What you believe about your future defines how you perceive circumstances of today”. If you’ve seen my posts from the last couple of days you will have caught a glimpse of the amazing things that have happened recently for @theoutkastacademy
. What you might not have seen though was the incredibly challenging couple of months preceding that. During that time an outside bystander, might have thought Outkast was “in trouble”, but my business partner and I refused to accept our current circumstances as the long term reality. From the very beginning we both had a dream and a vision of what we wanted to build Outkast into and nothing was going to stop us. Nothing IS going to stop us. There will be challenges. There will be times that things look a little hard and crazy but if you truly believe in yourself and where you are going, circumstances will not define you and hope will create life where others only see despair. Keep going. Don’t give up.

Today’s Message: 11/12/2017 OTTER Surrender — Let go of Control
So you think you’re in control of the situation, do you? Well, thats something that everybody thinks much of the time. These efforts at maintaining control are most often based in habitual, conditioned fear born out of many experiences where you witnessed others who were out of control. It was scary, dangerous, and maybe even life-threatening. You can be assured that now there’s no more danger and that you’re safe. You can now safely relinquish control.
Letting go of control doesn’t mean giving up. Giving up means throwing your hands up in the air in admission of defeat. Instead, true surrender means releasing any attempts to force your agenda on life. It means opening your hands and heart and accepting the direction of spirit. In that acceptance, your will becomes the Will of Spirit, and life flows much more easily through you and as you.
Praise God that you bear that name 🙌
As I write this my eyes fill with tears as I try to say how great is Jesus God and Creator of all things. The problem with saying how great God is, is that you would have to limit God to your comprehension of things which you know. For example, a person is only small because the oceans are so vast. Or an ant is tiny in comparison to a human but a giant in contrast to bacteria.
The Truth would be that Gods power is so great that it is immeasurable by any known or to be known methods or sciences. The Unmeasurable God! If you were to add all the stars and they all exploded at one time creating a release of energy that would wipe away complete worlds, that would not compare to the Majesty and greatness of God's power.
It is humbling; it's scary, it is out of this world, it is surreal!
How can I even try to measure Him?
That makes His love for me, for us even much more difficult to understand. I can't hide, I can't run, I can't overpower Him, I can't measure Him. He loved me; He loved you first! Who does that?
He who has no weaknesses became weakness to be born, to live, to die; not just any death but the death of the cross! God became man! Jesus in the flesh! That's power! Defeated the devil and death as a man! Greater are Your Ways Oh Lord!
To the only wise God, Jesus Christ be all honor and glory for ever and ever! AMEN! .

Take my word for it, summer is well and truly here 😂😂😭😭
Good morning my Friends. Hope you are waking up feeling good, on this cold wintery Monday. I love this post, it resonated with me, when I read it. This has been true in my experience. Sometimes it takes the worst pain to bring about the best change. Pain is the touchstone of all spiritual growth. My worst pain brought me into the light. And being in the light brought so much more pain. As I delved into my Soul to heal the scars of the past. There were days when the pain was unbearable. This is my awakening. Not realising, for me to heal. I must feel this darkness. No escapism. Nowhere to hide. Emotionally naked. When everything looked so bleak and scary. I knew God was with me. All I did was pray. Please God get me through this. And He did. Each time I go through my healing process. The feeling is amazing. To heal it. I must feel it. Then release it. This is how I grow Spiritually and emotionally. Nothing outside of me, can fix me today. Happiness and Freedom is an inside job. For me, awakening my soul has and is the most beautiful journey. Yes painful at times. But the view from the top is beautiful....... 💜 #Awakening #Freedom #Faith #God #Blessings
A clip from the episode “5 Reasons Christians Should Never Masturbate”. Our bodies are unto God, not selfish lustful pleasures that does not bring life. Sex the way God purposed it is fruitful.
Observad ahora lo que pasa dentro de ese recinto invisible, y os encontráis más adentro del templo. No ciertamente aun ni altar, ni imagen, ni el Santo Sacrificio, ni fieles, ni sacerdotes; El campo todavía, pero ya luce el sol de otra manera trascendental a vuestros ojos: hay niños que juegan y hombres que descansan, y mujeres atareadas y ancianos contemplativos al sol; hay pobres, que es lo primero que un templo necesita. Pero todo esto y todos estos va revestidos de una cierta piedad, se mueven, diría, en un ambiente presagrado. #esnadal #sagradafamilia #barcelona #gaudi #pesebre #micasaeslatuya #pesebrevivente #faith
