When God is before what can stand against you? Nothing! God is not only your Heavenly Father but He is your safe haven. God gives you strength when you are weak. Hope when you feel lost and hopeless. And love when you feel alone. This why as believers we must place our trust in the Lord. We place our trust in God because we believe no matter what happens my God is for me and not against me. The plans God has for your life is so great that even if you tired to imagine it you really could not imagine. For God wants to do something so new and big in your life, simply because of His love for you and your love for Him. 1 Corinthians 2 says, “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” My friend please understand this is your season of favor. God loves you so much. Happy Wednesday!🙏📝🌍😘#seekgod #mywalk #blogger #vlogger #notofthisworld #loudee2381 #godlovesyou #trustgod #godcan #faithwalk #believer
Please fire me. I work at a small bookstore in an airport. Because of our limited space, we’re very strict about what titles we carry: we only keep books that sell. Sales are carefully monitored and if something isn’t selling at a sustainable rate, it’s pulled from the shelves.
One book we don’t sell is the Bible. We periodically have customers asking for a Bible, but aside from mild annoyance, they rarely make an issue when we inform them we don’t have any. However, I had a customer come in a few weeks ago and ask where we kept our Bibles.
“I’m sorry, we don’t carry any Bibles,” I told her.
“Why not?” she demanded.
“Our store is small and we don’t have the room for them,” I said.
“No room, huh?” she said. She pointed to a book on display called Ghost Bride. “But you have room for books on ghosts?”
“It’s one of our staff picks for the month.” It was my staff pick, actually. “If you’re interested, we do have a small religion section.”
She grumbled a bit, but let me take her to the shelf of religion books to browse. She returned to the register a few moments later with a used copy of A Purpose-Driven Life. I rang up her book and handed it to her, thanking her for her purchase. She lingered by the register, packing her book into her luggage, gathering up her bags, checking to make sure she had her boarding pass and ID.
Once she was all situated, she straightened, looked me in the eyes and announced, “I will PRAY for this store,” and swept out.
The next day I told this story to a coworker who’s been at our location for 7 years. After I’d finished the story (and he’d finished rolling his eyes), I said, “Why don’t we have any Bibles? Enough people ask for one, I’d think we’d be able to sell a copy or two.”
“We used to have Bibles,” he said, “but they barely sold. People would come in and ask for one, but not buy it. They were just checking to make sure we had them. I think we were being tested.”
THIS TATTOO WASNT DONE BY ME. Couldn’t be happier with me new tattoo; my first crush after Blondie and the OTHER Scully to rule my world.
THANK YOU —–> @marina_inoue, you are an absolute gem. Follow her for greatness! #believer (at Captured Tattoo)
يقولُ اللهُ تعالَى : “ما لعبدي المؤمنِ عندي جزاءٌ ، إذا قبضتُ صفِيَّه من أهلِ الدُّنيا ثمَّ احتسبه ، إلَّا الجنَّةَ “ صحيح البخاري
Allah says, “I have nothing to give but Paradise as a reward to my believer slave, who, if I cause his dear friend (or relative) to die, remains patient (and hopes for Allah’s Reward).” Sahih al-Bukhari 6424 In-book reference : Book 81, Hadith 13 USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 8, Book 76, Hadith 432
قَوْله: إِذَا قَبَضْت صَفِيّه ـ هُوَ الْحَبِيب الْمُصَافِي كَالْوَلَدِ وَالْأَخ وَكُلّ مَنْ يُحِبّهُ الْإِنْسَان، وَالْمُرَاد بِالْقَبْضِ: قَبْض رُوحه وَهُوَ الْمَوْت، والْمُرَاد بِاحْتَسَبَهُ: صَبَرَ عَلَى فَقْده رَاجِيًا الْأَجْر مِنْ اللَّه عَلَى ذَلِكَ. الحافظ ابن حجر رحمه الله
