Confession: In leadership, licensed in P.A.W. and extremely visible, my life was spent making sure I met "the mark" of what the organization/church said I should be. Ankle skirts, no red lipstick, and dresses like potato sacks; Pressure my life as an example for feminine conservatism in holiness. .
UNTIL OCTOBER 13/2016
The Lord changed my lens and gave me liberty to be pleasing to HIM, only!
Ministry that is uniquely genuinely & lovingly authentic.
YOU WERE CREATED UNIQUE.
You were called for purpose different from the law of religion. See, religious folk will persuade you to conform to what they think "holiness" should look like. When Christ actually came to free us from their law!
At my core and with my exterior I will always be a conservative woman. But I will no longer live my life under the rules of other's religious law.
At heavens gate, You only, will be responsible for what you've done with what you were given Matt 5:25. You can't blame the church for your choices.
Choose to live life "poured out". Go where they say you shouldn't. Speak to those they've discarded. Wear your shoulders See, true ministry is FREE FROM LAW. Apostle Paul, in Galatians 5, says it this way, "Stand in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with a yoke of bondage. You have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law"

"How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others".. ~Steve Maraboli~ #lovequotes#selflove#enjoyeveryday#godwithme#godwithus#INTHENAMEOFJESUS
I have always wondered
what is your favourite colour.
For you have painted me
and so much more -
yet no matter
how hard I try,
I still remain
colourless in your world. - Timothy Joshua | @timoteijosh
