Iron sharpens iron. Who are the people around you? Are they God placed or man placed? It’s not just people who tell you what you want to hear. Sometimes it’s the people that speak truth are the ones truly edifying you. Proverbs 27:17 #hardtruth #ironsharpensiron
When you meet up with a friend for coffee and have to bring it home to warm it up you know you talked a lot😜
There is no better way to show love to someone than serving them selflessly. Look no further than than Jesus as the perfect example.

“I saw this gentleman, Tim, in Boston's Logan airport with the sister he'd been visiting. It appeared he was both deaf and blind, as I observed her signing into his hand for him to feel her words. When he came aboard the plane he had been assigned the middle seat of my row. The kind gentleman who had the aisle seat graciously gave it up for him. At this point Tim was traveling alone. The flight attendants sincerely wanted to assist him, but had no way to communicate. I watched as they didn't flinch when he reached out to touch their arms and faces. They took his hand and tried so hard to communicate with him, to no avail. He had some verbal ability, but clearly could not understand the attendants. The man who had given up his seat did his best to assist him with things like opening coffee creamer and putting it in his coffee. When Tim made the attempt to stand up and feel his way to the restroom, his seat mate immediately was up to help him. The flight attendants were talking among themselves and someone suggested paging to see if anyone on board knew sign language. That's when this lovely young woman came into the picture. 15 years old, she learned ASL because she had dyslexia and it was the easiest foreign language for her to learn. For the rest of the flight she attended to Tim. It was fascinating to watch as she signed one letter at a time into his hand. He was able to 'read' her signing and they carried on an animated conversation. When he asked her if she was pretty, she blushed and laughed as the seat mate, who had learned a few signs, communicated an enthusiastic yes to Tim. I don't know when I've ever seen so many people rally to take care of another human being. All of us in the immediate rows were laughing and smiling and enjoying his obvious delight in having someone to talk to...(Finished in comments section)
Ladies! I’ve said it once I’ll say it again .. strength comes from within and in numbers. Time to to quit knocking one another down, it doesn’t help you get ahead it knocks us ALL further back. Compliment one another, cheer on your fellow chicks! Let’s be an example to the young ladies after us. 💪 .

My best friend is getting married this weekend so we spent this last weekend out in Castaic and what a champ he was to do the bachelor run and get pelted with paintballs from all us groomsmen👊🏼 (we got approval from the bridal party if he came back with welts) Unreal and super exciting that MY BROTHA GETS MARRIED IN 5 MORE DAYS!!🙌🏼
“One who has reliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there’s a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:21 **** I remember a couple of weeks ago having a mental breakdown at work. At this point I had isolated myself from those closest to me thinking that I could do it all on my own. Then by the end of that day I ended up having a conversation with @christan.duncan
, and he was explaining to me how it’s God’s will to be in relationship with other like-minded people. I had no idea how that was going to happen. I was already 3 months in away from the church. My other friends have whole families and kids. I really didn’t feel like searching for people that I could trust. However, I knew that it was time for me to return home (@dreamcenteratl
) but my pride kept getting in the way. But God was withholding my blessing until my hard head listened. lol Then another friend of mine gave me the same word last Sunday. Finally I returned to church on Tuesday and on Saturday God blessed me with these amazing group of women. He answered my prayer because of my obedience. Last night we laughed, we cried, we prayed, we loved and I’m so grateful that God has allowed me to be a part of such amazing women’s lives. Obedience is definitely better than sacrifice. These women are the answer to my prayers. #Blessed #Sisters #ChurchGirl #Love #Healing #Prayer #God #TheShack #MovieNight #ICriedLikeABaby #StillAG #IronSharpensIron #IStayedUpPast1030
I remember being in seasons of “waiting” and wondering when God was going to show up. •
When will I ever find the one? When will I have kids? When will I find my dream job? The world tells us to “go out and get them!” But the truth is, no matter what we do to “try and make it happen,” if it’s not His time or His plan, then it’s not going to be beautiful the way we hope nor the way He intended. •
Whenever I took matters into my own hands it got ugly! Like real UGLY! But when I surrendered my life to His Will and was PATIENT to what he had in store, he showed up and in BIG ways! But it doesn’t stop once we have gotten the big things. I have to wake up and consciously surrender to His ways daily. I still have to fight against my own will to do it my way and let him have it all. •
It’s Monday, a new week to surrender. Who wants to give it all over to him this week with me? Iron sharpens iron! Let’s do this together. •

This duo, Isis and Gabriella, have held each other accountable and taken their performance to the next level. Both have PR'd several times already this season in the 800 and 400 and finished 1st and 3rd yesterday in the 400 at the USATF GA Junior Olympics - Isis at 56.86 and GG at 57.48. They also went 1-2 in the 800 with GG winning with a 2:21.53 and Isis following behind at 2:23.91. #ironsharpensiron #wedevelop @daphnedash
