I never want to be that person again. I never want to put anyone or anything before God. Even my emotions. I never want to be happy in my life of sin ignoring the consequences. I never want to disrespect God knowing that Jesus suffers so much just for me to be forgiven. • • I believe that the worst type of sin is repeated sin. There’s a big difference to me between sinning obliviously bc you’re not aware and sinning fully understanding what you’re doing and how you’re treating God. Do you enjoy being used? Would you like someone hurting you repeatedly just bc they know you’ll forgive them? No? So why treat God that way? • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 💕 • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

Prayer is so powerful. We know this. We also know prayer doesn’t require us to cut off our arm yet taking the time or even praying itself is one of the hardest things to get ourselves to do. I’m in no way condemning anyone. In fact I would like to share my recent struggles with prayer: this past summer I started to fall off with my prayer times. I went from 1-3 hours of praying every night and morning to doing a quick prayer before bed. When school started I made the excuse that I was tired from all my work by the time it was time to sleep. I made a vow to get closer to God but my efforts were pretty futile and didn’t go beyond wanting to do something. I never actually got around DOING it. • • Why do we treat such a powerful weapon like this. I noticed that the more I wanted to pray the more I didn’t pray. The better I wanted my relationship with God, the worse it got! This of course frustrated me. • • It doesn’t matter what it is. In the words of my friend: when you’re sad, pray. When you’re happy, pray. Yesterday I pushed off the excuses grabbed my Bible and started to read. It’s really just as simple as just doing it. I noticed how I forgot how much I enjoyed learning new things from reading the Bible. If you’re looking for a sign to just go pray, HERE IT IS. Feelings won’t get you through life. Discipline will. • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 🙏🏾♥️ • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

God’s grace is sufficient. Yes you’ve failed and may not know what the future holds but you must remember His grace is sufficient. You must understand that God can utilize your failure for the manifestation of you. His timing is perfect. His plan should be your prayer. We are only human so we can only see to the front of the hill that is ahead. God is God and He sees above and beyond that hill. • • In school we are taught that failure is apart of our success. Without failure how are we to understand what success is???? How can you understand the importance of an A without understanding what an F is??? No failure feels good but it’s imperative to our growth and understanding of success. God wants you to apply this to all areas of your life. He loves you and wants to uplift you. Let him! • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 🙏🏾♥️ • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

I think many of us like me have this sort of idea that we grew up with about the type of relationship with God. A demand and answer type. You demand something and God answers you. God demands something and you do as He says. Sounds familiar? This isn’t bad and I’m not shaming anyone. But if you read the Bible CLOSER you will find that God wants a relationship with us. One where we talk to Him about every and anything. Mad at Him? Tell Him? Confused? Let Him know! Be real with your emotions and Him. • • I think one of our biggest problems is denying the responsibility we have in our part of the relationship. What we should be doing. Take me for example. Ever since I vowed to get closer to God I’ve been falling off with my quiet/prayer time with God and going backwards. I’ve also recently been sad about my quiet season. Yesterday I was scrolling through twitter and someone said. “Don’t say God is silent when your bible is closed” WHEW what a word for me. I can’t complain about an outcome I am creating... 💕 • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 💓 • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

We loose a lot of self confidence when we start to compare ourselves to others. We have a bad habit of thinking that other people succeeding means that we CAN’T do succeed in the same area and that the other person is better than us. This is sooooo untrue. I’ve said this before. Our journeys are different. It’s like comparing a ballet dancer to a football player. Which is better? Well at what? They’re on two completely different paths. Instead of comparing learn from others. • • I’m back I was wrapping up the end of the semester! (Praying for everyone still doing finals/waiting for grades) I’m very excited for Christmas (My favorite holiday!!!!!) • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

If you’re like me and a thinker, you probably tend to focus a lot on alternatives. What you could have or should have done. Regretting your mistakes won’t change them. Mistakes are a part of growth. Without knowing what doesn’t work you wouldn’t know what does. What you do have CONTROL over is your decisions. Your decisions will affect your outcome and quality of life. Your mistakes have now given you an opportunity to choose a better life! • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 💓 • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

People like to excuse their vices and bad tendencies on how they were raised/where they’re from. Growing up I found this to be discouraging. I didn’t grow up in the best family dynamic, and I didn’t have much growing up (though my mom ALWAYS made sure I got what I needed). My mother taught me from an early age that this isn’t true. You’re a product of who you shape yourself to be. When you realize your identity is to be found in Christ you will shape yourself to be a child of God with dreams and goals. • • Just because your parents were addicts/drunkards doesn’t mean you have to be one. Just bc no one in your family has a happy marriage doesn’t mean you can’t have one. Just because you didn’t have a good relationship with your parents doesn’t mean you can’t have a good relationship with your children. Etc. BE THE ONE TO BREAK GENERATIONAL CURSES! praying for everyone stay warm guys 💗 • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 💓 • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

I randomly opened up to the chapter last night while praying. This verse really struck with me because it was like I was being warned. I know what I had to go through to be saved from my past. God granted grace and mercy because I was naive. But now I know better. Yet I’m choosing to stay in a place/mindset that I know is wrong. UNDERSTANDING that your habit is sin and continuing it anyway is a dangerous game to play. It’s time to stop making excuses and take responsibility for myself. God guides but we are given the free will to choose. • • As you grow deeper in your relationship with you you have more responsibilities because you now understand more things. It may be overwhelming but you need to be “stretched” in order to grow. • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more.

God is bigger than your problems. God is bigger than your enemies. God is bigger than the devil. God is bigger than your mistakes. God is bigger than your past. • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more.

Be true with God. God is omnipotent so being fake with your feeling while praying won’t get you anywhere. Be honest: Sometimes we feel like God has forgotten us. Some people may even feel as though God doesn’t like them or care about them because of their sins (even current sins) This is wrong. We can’t fathom God’s love. But you and everyone should know he loves unconditionally. He loves despite our flaws. Continue to pray and He’ll help you with the rest. 💕 • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more ♥️ • • #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

This post is inspired by a friend! ❤️ • • What does your relationship with God look like. I’m not talking about knowing who God is or being able to memorize. I’m talking about a REAL relationship. Many of us our dependent on pastors/priests to understand God and speak to God for us. You must understand you’re capable of doing the same thing. True pastors will even tell you themselves: You should be able to talk to God, you should be able to hear a God. Your relationship with God doesn’t have to be so rigid it should be open. You should be able to talk to God as if you’re talking to a close friend. (while still maintaining respect) Angry at Him? Tell him. Confused? Tell Him. Not strong enough to do good? Tell Him. Pastors are meant to guide you in your faith not be your faith. BUILD your relationship with God. • • Follow @thefearingsoul for more 💗 • • #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

🤷🏾‍♀️. “It’s a small sin it won’t matter” “is this really bad anyway?” “Other people do and God still helps and love them” “I’ll ask for forgiveness later” “God still loves me” sound familiar???? I’m not here to reprimand or judge you (this post is for me too lol) just here to remind you that all sin is sin. Continue praying for direction bc Ik how hard it can be to change your ways. Don’t deceive yourself when you like a sin too much you start to make and BELIEVE your lies... . .

Stop what you’re doing and go get “An Encounter Beyond Human Understanding” by Adriano Charles (@an_encounter_beyond_understand) The book introduces the love and existence of God and the need for us to have an encounter with Him to achieve a fulfillment that only He can bring. If you’re like me and love learning this book is great bc it introduces intellectual side of faith and the path to meet God either through love or REASON. The content of the book could bring new ideas to new development of introducing and relating to God through Jesus Christ. The book is already available on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles!!! . . #motivation #igers #instagood #bibleverse #biblejournaling #college #collegefootball #love #igdaily #gospel #spiritualword #church #christian #biblestudy #bible #happy #millennials #instaquote #quotes #young #viral #explore #christianity #christianmusic #christianmemes

R E P O S T from my new page @theunconditionalsoul please read and follow!! . . A big part of this page is my personal journey. (Go read the “My story” highlight for more background!!) So I’ll be sharing what I’m going through a lot...The next person I date I want to marry and that’s what I’ve decided. I want to love right. This is the reason why I’ve decided to take a break from dating. With that being said I have a friend that I really like lol. He’s the only person I’ve ever been close to in my life. He’s someone I’m actually myself around. (I’m closer to him than I am my sisters; I’m also really shy and have a hard time opening up to people but it’s so easy with him) we both agreed it’s best we don’t date right now. (We both need to heal from past relationships). I get angry, I have a hard time trusting, and sadly I take things out on him. Though I make a lot of mistakes my friend continues to guide me, talk to me about God, and give me chances to become a better person. I really don’t want to mess this up whether we date or stay friends😪I know I have many bad habits to knock so I’m going to continue to pray for healing. I’m also putting together bible study guide to work on myself (I can share if you guys are interested) . .
