🕊More of Him, less of me⏩us🕊
The prophets struggled in vain to bring Israel back to God. But when Peter preached, full of the Holy Spirit, 3,000 people surrendered. Without the Holy Spirit, Christianity is reduced to ‘religion’, which is no more effective than the Old Testament system and the priesthood before the age of the Spirit. Jesus said ‘You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you’ (Acts 1:8). Without that vitality we have a secularized, nominalized, rationalized, and harmless religion. Mystical contemplation bears no resemblance to New Testament dynamism; Quietism is for Buddhists, not Christians. Whatever chill may have frozen the church; Christianity is only ‘churchianity’ until the Holy Spirit takes over. The less Holy Spirit we have, the more cake and coffee we need to keep the church going. Nothing against cake or coffee, but there is NO substitute for the HOLY SPIRIT.
God bless you.▫️

🍁Donut be discouraged.
He is our victory.
Part of being ready, being prepared is knowing how to detect his schemes and twisted ways. This devotional will equip you to have the eyes to see the real battle.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full ARMOR of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with TRUTH and having put on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of FAITH with which you will be able to extinguish all the arrows if the evil one. And take the helmet of SALVATION and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
PRAY at all times!
Getting ready to take these two to their 1yr and 3yr check up with their pediatrician. Can't believe it! Times going by so fast but I'm so grateful for the strong bond that we have. I'm grateful that my babies know how much I Love them. I'm grateful that they Love me and make me feel like the worlds greatest mommy! But above all, I'm forever grateful for Gods unfailing & everlasting LOVE for us! He is so Good, so Faithful, so Amazing! No words will ever be enough! #ThankYouJESUS#GODisGood#Love#LeighlaJordanEselu#LeightonEselu#MyBabiesThinkImSuperWoman 😂 Thank You Jesus for making me strong enough to carry both of them when they wanna be carried by mommy and ONLY mommy lol

Afternoon y'all! - as much as we go through good or the bad we should never loose focus on Gods purpose for our lives. I know why we go through the storm not only to grow, succeed but to get closer into a relationship with God and tell others our testimony. Like my husband said "doors that were open needed to be closed all around" God is organizing my life shutting doors that was a cycle revolving around me. I ask and so he revealed to me what needed to happen, Did I like it HECK TO THE NO but now I understand. I will continue to be faithful,prayed up and trusting him only him the one that will mold me to be a better mother,wife and a virtuous women like never before. #stayedprayedup#thankyoujesus#faithful#jesusismyking#thankyouholyspirit#thankyouformyhusband and #mynewfamily
I know that right now I'm in a season on waiting... and tbh at times I really hate it. I am very impatient and want things to happen right now... and I know that part of the reason I'm in this season is to teach me patients. The other reason I'm going through this is so that God can grow me and strengthen me for what's ahead.. because I know that He has something wonderful and amazing planned, far greater than I could ask for or do on my own. He rescued me from an abusive and unhealthy relationship, and I am grateful for that... and if I was able to love a man that did those things to me so much, I know God has someone incredible for me and a life so beautiful ahead that is so worth going through this season of waiting. So in this season... my eyes and my heart are solely focused on You Lord... let nothing take my eyes from You again.... even when You bless me with something amazing. Let me find my happiness and peace in You alone. I praise and thank You for allowing me to go through this difficult season. #godisgood#thankyoujesus
I got to spend the day yesterday with Austen, just him and I, which is rare. We had a lunch date and spent time talking to one another! These pictures are from a photoshoot at Zulily and as I looked through them today, I had to pause and thank Jesus for this sweet boy!
Sept. 21st 2011, is the day we lost our son Hudson. As that day marks the toughest day of my life, the loss taught me so much. It brought me closer to Jesus, challenged my faith and reminded me of ALL of the amazing friends and family we have in our life. The greatest blessing from this loss is Austen! A child born after loss is called a Rainbow baby. He for sure is our rainbow child, shining bright and beautiful everyday! 🌈 A reminder when times are tough to trust the Lord and be patient!
Thank God for the gift of life! When everyone sang the birthday song to Ella, her face says it all! She managed to contain her joy in a funny facial expression 😆😅❤. The food is flowing! We have amazing friends who prepared delicious food 🍬🎂🍽😙! And when it's time to open the gifts it's the adults who are more excited 🤗😂😁. #THANKYOUJESUS ! #GraceFull#houseofnygards#ellalove#turns2sweet
I look back in my mirror and I see a full car. Full of babies, cries, laughs, smiles and love. God is a God of miracles. The doctor told me I’d never have biological children and here I am in the presence of Jaxon and Ava who are very much mine. They are miracles. Hand picked by God himself! If you don’t know God, it’s time! He IS the God of miracles! Whatever you are asking, seeking, praying.. HE IS victory, HE IS healing, HE IS peace and protection, HE IS power! HE IS the GOD of MIRACLES—� GOD I BELIEVE in YOU! #mymiracles#myblessings#thankyoujesus#godislove#ibelieveinyou#ivf#ivfjourney#ivftwins
