Not out of necessity, like many think, for He did not need us to be fulfilled within himself, but because He overflows with goodness; out of sheer grace.
God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And he said, "Say this to the people of Israel: 'I AM has sent me to you.'" - Exodus 3:14
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." - John 8:58
24 The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man,
25 nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.
26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,
27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
28 for "'In him we live and move and have our being'; as even some of your own poets have said, "'For we are indeed his offspring.' 29 Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man.
30 The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent,
31 because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead." - Acts 17:24-31

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMANDA!!! Thanks for always taking squinty-eyed smile pictures with me and having the same stupid humor as me 😉😂. Thanks for always being a voice of truth in my life and helping me study the Bible better through your example.
Thanks for showing me eating health can actually taste good (haha). #shook
Thanks for all the phone calls and in-person listening to my (sometimes crazy) emotions and fears.
Thank you for giving me a love for singing and playing music and giving me the courage to let others hear.
But most of all, thanks for being my best friend. I can honestly say you’ve seen me at my worst, yet you cared so deeply and were so committed to loving like Jesus that my ugly didn’t scare you away. THANK YOU. Jesus gave me the best present by giving me you. ❤️ But of course, you had to move to Kodiak, Alaska so I can’t go hiking and eat a bunch of food with you today 🙄 So, this post will have to suffice for now. I FRICKIN’ LOVE YOU GIRL!!!
For whoever needs to see this, BE ENCOURAGED! Yes, its hard now but ITS NOT OVER. You will get your life back and it will be better than it ever was before. There is hope! New strength and yes new hair. Stay the course and keep on fighting. Dont give up! #throwbackthursday#tbt#cancersucks but #GodisGood

This women’s service was an emotional one, one that I won’t forget.. It touched my heart in such a deep way.💗 As I was praying for the women that would come to the service, God put on my heart that there was a lot of them who’s hearts were deeply broken... That some had been through a lot of heartache, disappointments, tough home life’s,etc. Tears streamed down my face as I shared my story of how God healed my heart of many disappointments, depression, and my parents divorce. At the end, about 100 women came to the front to be prayed for. Each girl I prayed for, I couldn’t help but just hold them as they cried, God began to do heal their hearts like only he can.
There’s no pain too deep that God’s love cannot reach out and heal. 🙏💗 #forever#changed#godisgood

💚💙💚 I’m feeling a little better each day. 2019 has been beyond challenging & my health has never been this compromised. Be grateful for your health & the simple things in life. You never know when that may be stripped away. But God is good, & I’m not giving up!!! 💙💚💙
Surprise!! Went to the doctor for a kidney infection and learned I was pregnant. The last time I was pregnant was 12 years ago. I never dreamed it would happen again. But my husband has prayed for years for another baby. And God has seen fit to send us a little miracle. #pregnant#pregnancyannouncement#baby#blessing#godisgood #
