"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to John 4:43-54
When the two days were over Jesus left for Galilee.
He himself had declared that a prophet is not honoured in his own home town.
On his arrival the Galileans received him well, having seen all that he had done at Jerusalem during the festival which they too had attended.
He went again to Cana in Galilee, where he had changed the water into wine. And there was a royal official whose son was ill at Capernaum;
hearing that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judaea, he went and asked him to come and cure his son, as he was at the point of death.
Jesus said to him, 'Unless you see signs and portents you will not believe!'
'Sir,' answered the official, 'come down before my child dies.'
'Go home,' said Jesus, 'your son will live.' The man believed what Jesus had said and went on his way home;
and while he was still on the way his servants met him with the news that his boy was alive.
He asked them when the boy had begun to recover. They replied, 'The fever left him yesterday at the seventh hour.'
The father realised that this was exactly the time when Jesus had said, 'Your son will live'; and he and all his household believed.
This new sign, the second, Jesus performed on his return from Judaea to Galilee.
The key is to ask questions until the truth is pushed out. They can't continue to lie to us. The time will come when our minds will expand and we will grow together. There is truth in history, not what they teach you. Read, understand, connect. He did not say let us create light, he said let there be light. #bible#history#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#truth#mankind#anthology
"There is a hill I cherish, where stood a precious tree, the emblem of Salvation. The gift of Calvary. How is it I should profit? While He is crucified. Yet as His life was taken so I was granted mine. My wealth is in the cross."-Hillsong Worship
Mazmur 16:8-9 (TB) Aku senantiasa memandang kepada TUHAN; karena Ia berdiri di sebelah kananku, aku tidak goyah.
Sebab itu hatiku bersukacita dan jiwaku bersorak-sorak, bahkan tubuhku akan diam dengan tenteram;
Psalms 16:8-9 (NET) I constantly trust in the Lord; because he is at my right hand, I will not be upended.
So my heart rejoices and I am happy; My life is safe. #ThankJESUS#Bible#iampeazmakerz#staycoolandpeaz

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
I read this verse in the “I” statement and wow, how much power that gives me. Every time I’ve recalled this verse when anxiety rears its ugly head, I have been able to fight through the struggle. I think it’s not just the reminder that this fear isn’t from the Lord, but also the usage of the word POWER. I have power-over this fear, over these thoughts I’m having-I have the power to push through.
I listened to a podcast yesterday that reminded me of how powerful it is to memorize verses, she called them "fighting verses" to get out of the rough patches of your life. What are some scriptures that get you through tough times?
Fact 6••I loveeeee Bible study. It's one of my favorite things to do. I look forward to it every Sunday morning. I love hearing all of the wisdom surrounding me and everyone's experiences and thoughts. It's so uplifting and encouraging. I'm thankful to have the best Bible study classes that I've ever had 🖤🖤
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.' – Mark 12:30-31 #love#Christ#neighbors#pray#Godislove#bible
