Precious, honored and loved daughters of God

Welcome to the newbies, we’re glad you’re here.

Put your sparkle in there

You might just blow the roof off with this much estrogen. But don’t do that, I need a job.

Because you are precious in my sight, you are honored and I love you.

If only we knew how precious we are

We’re as smart as sheep.

We’re not doing ourselves any favors if we wait for our attachment when we’re on our death beds.

Study him. Look at him, let him look at you.

Even as I wait, you’re coming close.

I think the word of god has power. when it goes out, it never comes back void. Can I get an amen?

You are not here by accident.

Ask the Holy Spirit to soften your heart

Both rebellion and self-righteousness lead us away from the father

I bring burdens to you, You bring open arms.

I am a mess, I am a mess without you.

I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it

O the overwhelming, never ending reckless love of God

 

Thunder cats. Holy Moses.

 

On the ultrasound screen was my active baby waving hi to us, as if to say I am alive!

Through it all, the Holy Spirit was always speaking to me

I know he loves me, because it says so over and over in the Bible.

He’s here, Mom, flying next to the car.

 

I had a dream. Jesus was there.

God is greater than the highs and lows.

You gotta have a plucking pal for life.

 

Hey guys, can we say an Our Father?

In 30 hours i went from the height of joy to the depths of despair.

This time my faith was extremely different. My faith in God brought me no comfort at all.

Lord, how much must I bear?

I walked into the chapel and said, “Lord, I give this anger to you. I can’t do this on my own.”

He didn’t take away the pain, but He gave me the grace to walk through it.

When we hold onto anger, God’s love can’t get through.

Every homily was about opening your hearts and not being afraid to love again.

It was about desiring God’s will.

I had to end every prayer with ‘your will Lord, not mine, be done.’

This time, my faith brought great comfort.

I am here, and I have a beautiful plan for you, right now.

So, even though we were all there together in the hospital, we were very much alone.

You will never be truly happy unless you are completely in God’s will.

We watched an army rise up around the world in prayer for us.

God is healing Seth in the waiting.

My God is good

It was the prayers that gave him the strength to fight to come back to us.

I still struggle every day to trust God and to surrender to him. But he just waits patiently for me.

You are here this weekend because he wants you to know he loves you

 

For an instant, god let me see with my spiritual eyes, but he called me back to the physical realm.

I saw my body on the machines, and I was with God.

Spoiler alert: I woke up!

God doesn’t make bad things happen for us, he makes good things happen with our pain.

It hurt so bad to feel the weight of my own sin

If you want to go to heaven, live like you want to go to heaven. You may not get another chance.

If you could see with your spiritual eyes, you could see this room is even more packed than it is.

My healing was undeniably a miracle, but I still had to go through every step.

I’m not a perfect person, but I’m committed to Christ.

I would go back to laying in the hospital bed just to feel God’s love again

This is one of those drop the mic moments

 

I’m not wrapped up in the whirlwind anymore.

I choose life

 

Holy Spirit you are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

 

Because you are precious in my sight, you are honored and I love you.

Do not fear, I have called you by name.

You. Are. Mine.

Our God never gives up on us.

 

Get down and get real with God

In your own little tunnel

Because in the end, it’s all about you and Jesus.

Well done, my pretty princesses

I want you to know…Whenever you invite me in, i do come. Always.

I bring you my light to dispel your darkness.

I love you for you. Just as you are.

And I have shed my blood to win you back

You give me the joy of being your savior

What a beautiful name it is

The name of Jesus

 

Boy, we’re sure loved by a good God. Are we not?

 

Love is patient

Love is patient

Love is patient

Strive for love

People do not love themselves enough

If you don’t have any energy inside of you, how can you love someone else?

Be gentle with yourself

 

If we are precious, and we are honored…then what does that say about Him?

This grumpy old man thing…I thought that was God for a long time.

We use the same words, but we don’t mean the same thing when we say them

God is, by his nature, a complete and total gift of himself

Maybe we have stoney hearts. Cracked and broken.

God says, “I want to give you my heart, because then you will know me. And know I am good.”

I gave God a piece of my heart. Not the whole thing, just a piece of it.

Start treating your husband as if you’ve already forgiven him, and ask Jesus to forgive him for you.

He gave me his heart.

Which part of my heart is stoney today?

When you do, he brings healing.

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.

And you are precious, honored and loved.
