If your dreams don’t scare you, dream bigger. That’s what I did and I encourage you to do the same! I have a little testimony that I would like to share and I hope it encourages you! I had been out of work for almost a year and finances were a bit shaky. I was looking for full time work and couldn’t land anything that I wanted. I was hearing so many “No’s” than I was hearing “yes’s”. Rejection weighed heavy on me, my spirit was crushed and I was ultimately discouraged. I applied to one job that I thought was the job of a lifetime, or so I convinced myself that it was. I didn’t get it. I was so discouraged as I started sending out my resumes again. I got an interview at a confidential company in DTLA. I was almost not going to go because I didn’t feel like being rejected for yet another time. But I went, and finally landed that YES! I accepted a position at Cushman and Wakefield as a Learning & Development Coordinator serving The West Americas and Mexico. Not only is the job that I really wanted, but what I needed. My salary is more than double of the job I thought I wanted. My manager is already heavily invested in me already, and my work allows me to fund and continue to grow my ministry! Let me tell you: God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all you can ever ask or think! He’s done it time and time again in my life and he will do it in your life.

The crazy thing about God being on your side is that you can Never lose, and no matter what the enemy does to stop it, You’ll Always Win👑
________________________
I’m thankful that @lorenzoewing requested me to participate in his #winningattitudechallange because too many days of my life I have beat myself down from all the mistakes I’ve made in life, and all the blessings I thought I’ve messed up. The enemy almost had me believe that there was nothing better for me and I could never make up for the choices I’ve made, and I would never be worthy of sharing the word of God, but the devil is a Liar!!!! God has Always had my back and knew in His infinite wisdom that I’d one day be able to stand against the lies of the world and the tricks of the enemy that wants us to believe our mistakes and shortcomings makes us unusable in the Kingdom of God, when actually our mistakes and shortcomings is Exactly what makes us Useful! So Lord I stand today saying use me and everything about me to advance Your Kingdom and bring glory to Your Name, in Jesus name Amen 🙏🏾 _________________________

Regrann from @dosebiblicaoficial - “E ele prosseguiu: “Não tenha medo, Daniel. Desde o primeiro dia em que você decidiu buscar entendimento e humilhar-se diante do seu Deus, suas palavras foram ouvidas, e eu vim em resposta a elas.” - Daniel: 10:12.
.
Daniel entendeu que nada ele iria conseguir sozinho, precisava do Senhor na vida dele. E fez o que precisamos nos nossos dias, humilhar-se diante de Deus e apresentar todos os nossos planos e buscar dependência diária nEle.
.
Daniel só foi descrito como muito amado porque ele decidiu tirar seu TEMPO COM DEUS e buscou entendimento e humilhou-se diante de Deus.
.
Ele dedicou-se em obedecer ao Senhor e não se contaminar com nada que poderia tirá-lo da presença do Senhor.
O interessante é que Daniel entrava no seu quarto e orava 3 vezes ao dia.
Às vezes queremos ser abençoados, ser sábios, ter entendimento porém nem se quer dedicamos Tempo pra falar com Deus.
.
Quem sabe o motivo do seu fracasso esteja em querer apenas os resultados desejados, mas não tem deixado Deus entrar em sua vida. Priorize seu Tempo com Deus, abra mão daquilo que te deixa longe dEle. Comece hoje mesmo. Amém?

Hay días donde me frustro, donde siento que no debo continuar, donde pierdo fuerzas pero Dios siempre busca la forma de hacerme saber que El está conmigo y que tiene un propósito grande para mi a través de estos medios. Hoy lo hizo a través de la voz de esta hermosa niña la cual me dijo que era MI MAYOR FAN ❤️, me lleno el corazón de una felicidad indescriptible.
.
Alguien me dijo que para llegar lejos y ganar muchas reproducciones y seguidores debía de mostrar cosas del mundo, mujeres con poca ropa, temas grotescos o con doble sentido o conseguirme una mujer hermosa ... Pero hoy más que nunca he entendido que prefiero ir despacio y dejando buenas enseñanzas que ir rápido y seguir llenando el medio de cosas que no aportan algo en la vida de las personas.

Psalm 4:4-8 (A psalm of David) Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. Offer sacrifices in the right spirit, and trust the Lord. Many people say, “Who will show us better times?” Let Your face smile on us, Lord. You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. #trust #trustgod #seek #seekgod #peace #safety #security #godspromise #godsplan #godspeace #jesus #princeofpeace #jesussaves #jesusheals #jesusonly #onlyjesus

What are the reasons I joined Rodan + Fields skincare brand? 🔹I wanted to be able to work from anywhere in the world.
🔹I wanted to work the hours I wanted to work.
🔹I wanted to work with good and Godly people.
🔹I wanted to create great friendships.
🔹I wanted to work with a reputable company.
🔹I wanted to be able to earn an unlimited income.
🔹I wanted a tax write off business.
🔹I wanted to supplement my retirement.
🔹I wanted to leave a legacy for my child.
🔹I wanted time freedom...my time/my terms.
🔹I wanted personal fulfillment.
🔹I wanted to work for myself....be my own boss. 🔹🔹🔹 MORE BONUSES🔹🔹🔹 🔹I don't carry inventory... the company does that for me. 🔹I don't ship products... the company does that for me. 🔹I don’t have to handle payments or set up accounts,
the company does that for me. 🔹I don’t have to set up a website...
the company takes care of that for me.

SO HERE IS WHAT I DID....
🔹I joined the number 1 skincare brand in North America
🔹 I joined the creators of 2 billion dollar brands...
Proactive and Rodan + Fields.
🔹 I joined a company that is expanded Globally 🔹I wash my face and share my love for the products because this is the BEST skincare I've ever used! 🔹I Offer others the GIFT of this incredible life changing business.

Wondering if you can do that? Of course you can...anyone can.

YOU ARE ALREADY DOING IT, you just aren't getting paid
for it.
I am serious...we all share products we love with others.
For example: 🔹that coffee you love
🔹the yummy restaurant you recommended
🔹the hair stylist or nail salon you suggested to a friend
🔹that amazing podcast or book you encouraged others to check out 🔹the game you play on your phone (which BTW could be time spent working your biz)
🔹that instant pot you love
🔹that new Amazon product you love
🔹that new CD you love

So isn’t it neat that you can start making money for sharing something you love with others. Absolutely NOTHING to lose and SO MUCH to gain! And our company is OFFERING THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE YOUR ENTIRE INVESTMENT BACK...ASK ME HOW.
60 day guarantee on the business as well..who offers that?

''CUIDADO PRA NÃO PERDER O MILAGRE POR TENTAR ENTENDER O MÉTODO.''
.
Corremos um grande risco de perdermos o milagre quando tentamos descobrir a forma que Deus usará para realizá-lo. É importante lembrar de que todos os milagres citados na Bíblia foram realizados de formas inimagináveis, como: a multiplicação dos pães (João 6), e tantos outros. Jesus não encomendou milhares de pães e nem milhares de peixes. Pelo contrário, Jesus não tinha nenhum peixe e nenhum pão, até que um menino chegasse. Jesus multiplicou os pães e os peixes para nos mostrar que até mesmo nas horas que pensamos estar tudo acabado, há uma saída. Basta uma palavra do mestre! Jesus já sabia o que ia fazer para alimentar toda aquela multidão, e perguntou a Filipe somente para pô-lo à prova (João 06:5-6). Que você possa conhecer a Jesus de tal maneira, que não tenha dúvida alguma de que o milagre será realizado, independente do método, da forma que Deus o realizará. Que você tenha certeza de que Deus está no controle e de que Ele suprirá todas as vossas necessidades.

Well that was a tough run. It was only ten miles, I love doing ten mile runs, but the last five seemed hard. My muscles just felt fatigued today. I really focused of thanking God for His many blessings when it got harder. I'm not even sure why I have felt so fatigued, but some days are tougher then others. Power through, take a slower recovery day as needed and always remember that God is good and has great reasons for good days and tough days, we can trust Him and what He is doing. All glory to Him!

Ninguém gosta de passar por tribulação. A tribulação é um tempo de sofrimento e dificuldades, que põe à prova nossa fé e esperança. Mas Deus está conosco, até nas mais duras tribulações.

Deus pode transformar a situação mais difícil. Todos enfrentamos tribulação mas não dura para sempre. Se confiarmos em Deus até o fim, ele trará vitória e consolação.

Não só isso, mas também nos gloriamos nas tribulações, porque sabemos que a tribulação produz perseverança; a perseverança, um caráter aprovado; e o caráter aprovado, esperança. E a esperança não nos decepciona, porque Deus derramou seu amor em nossos corações, por meio do Espírito Santo que ele nos concedeu.
Romanos 5:3-5

The devil knows the power of an armored Christian. He will use anything and anyone to distract and dismantle a Christian from their God given duty and power—The Sword of the Spirit, The Word of God. Whatever the need, great or small, God's Word has the answer, so keep making it your endeavor to enter into it daily.

This. 🔥💖👏🏽 Comparison kills.

God alone is my boast. .
.
.

I don't mind sharing my failures, my doubts, my struggles, and my intense battle with fear. There are two Scriptures in particular that have really been my rock in reminding me that I'm fighting from victory. I don't ever want to pretend that my life is always together...that my IG is replete with perfectly staged, filtered photos of the latest poses and a funny, yet witty quip. I pray that my posts come across as real, raw, and authentic. That life can indeed be painful and unexpected but Jesus is and will always be our lifeguard, our anchor, our Rock, the one on whom our gaze must always be upon. I don't have to be afraid of failure, nor do I feel like I have to hide it when I do. Failing is not the same as falling. We are not defined by our mistakes. Stay in your lane and know that God has you in the palm of your hand. .
.
.

But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.
2 Corinthians 12:9‭-‬10 TPT

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
Jude 1:24 NKJV

If I’m being honest, I’ve struggled a little with tasks and feeling like I’m not worth much. I’m starting to finally settle into a routine again, but I told my cute man just today that I can’t do it all and continue being successful at it all.

I am more than a mom. I am more than a wife. I am more than a photographer. I am more than a social media marketer. I am more than a personality. I am more than a band mom. I am more than a church goer. I am more than a minister’s wife. I am more than an algorithm. I am more than a follower. I am more than a house keeper. I am more than a leader. I am more than a singer. I am more than a cook. I am more than a daughter. I am more than chocolate addict. I am more than the number of people who follow me on social media.

I am Amy! I am a believer and sold out follower of Jesus Christ. I am a mom who is passionate about watching her children grow in knowledge. I am a wife who adores her husband and is even co-dependent with him some days because I just can’t get enough time with him. I am Amy. There is so much more to each of us than meets the eye. No more hiding in the shadows wondering what life is really like around here. It’s hard somedays, but we are more than that hard day! Let’s be confident in our call and passionate about what we create. We don’t have to always agree, but we can definitely agree that we are more than what most people think of us and that makes us pretty amazing! #iammore #iammorethan #iammorethananumber #amycolephoto

i had always dreamed of being the little girl that twirled in a field in a lace white dress, i would picture her sweetly, she was delicate and free, dancing on an aroma of innocence that had not yet been tainted by things too heavy for her boney shoulders still scant from life’s hanging. it would be july and fireflies would rest in the crevices of her hope and it would illuminate her goodness .
.

each night i would quietly tuck her away, running my fingers over my jagged edges imagining the way the lace would fall if I would have been able to run fast enough away. you see I spent so long allowing that little girl to believe she was less than, i allowed myself to believe i wasn’t worthy of dawning my scars in grace and delicate, i wore harshness and shame and abandonment from my neck and allowed them to be the loudest thing about my tender spirit .
.

without hesitation and contingencies i remember the moment jesus tapped on the door and hung my scars on the mantle next to his. he reminded me that sometimes scars come at the price of sacrifice and maybe most often the things that we allow to define us were never our fault, i remember drinking up freedom and lifting my eyes from being locked in the gaze of shame and for the first time i put on the lace .
.

i took the hand of our sweet savior and i showed up to the field of wildflowers in july with tangled strawberry curls and blue toes nails and a messy tender heart and i believe that i could be unraveled and scarred and still be the depiction of grace .
.

you are not what has been done to you
you are not what has left you
you are not your mistakes
you are not your hidden or your dark or your shackles .
.

you are all together lovely and blameless and delicate and known and needed. and maybe it’s time that you walk in freedom and believe you are still destined for beauty, dear one. because you are.
