Charlotte Gabbard Settle

This was a celebration service for Charlotte. She has been preaching the gospel for 51 years. She is an amazing woman of God. You can listen to sermons she has preached @ Uptown Church

Matthew 24:35 KJV Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

*Gods word is mighty. We need to apply the word.

*When we let him move, he can get in & fix the problem

Hebrews 4:12 KJV For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

*We need to open our hearts to the Lord

Isaiah 64:8 KJV But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

*We need to be quite & let God mold us. Let God get you into position to receive his anointing, promise, blessings, & miracles.

*Be in the house of the Lord. We need to hear the anointed word of God. It’s not all about praise & worship. Which is good, but we also need the meat. We need the protein for our spiritual man.

*We need more of Gods word. More than once a week

*When God speaks believe it

*Gods word mixed with faith it will do something for you. Don’t give up. Wait on it

Don’t compromise Gods word. Stand on it, believe it, speak it
What I learned surfing in Hawaii with the first Hindu congresswoman
Yahoo News hits the island waves with Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard By Chris Moody, Yahoo News

The sun has yet to rise when Tulsi Gabbard pulls her car into a near-empty parking lot here on Oahu’s windy eastern shore, walks toward the water and unfurls a yoga mat on the beach.

As gently crashing waves break the morning stillness, the congresswoman stands straight and salutes the tip of the glowing sun as it rises into the clouds and flashes a light upon the water.

For 30 minutes, she mediates in silence, shifting yoga positions while the sun rises higher in the sky.

Washington is—and certainly feels—4,000 miles away.

An hour later, Gabbard is geared up in a wet suit and rashguard, a surfboard under her arm, looking out over the surf near Waikiki. She paddles out to the breakers several hundred yards from shore, where she sits on her board and waits for the blue waters of the South Pacific to rise in a swell.

When the first waves roll in, she turns back toward the beach and paddles for the wave. The waist-high wall of water rises behind her, and she leaps up from her stomach—Gabbard is goofy-footed, which means she puts her right foot forward—and carves her way toward the beach on a strong but steady left. 

This is how, after a grueling legislative session in Washington, the congresswoman from Hawaii starts her day back home. In a few hours she’ll be back on land, ready for a round of meetings with constituents. Then it’s back on a plane to stateside fundraisers as part of her duties with the Democratic National Committee.

But these early morning hours are a moment she has for herself.

“Literally every time I come home, my first stop is the ocean,” Gabbard tells me as we sit on our boards in the water. “Every time I come out of the water I feel refreshed. I feel inspired, I feel motivated.”

Elected to Congress in 2012, Gabbard is a newcomer to Congress. At 33-years-old, she’s one of just a handful of Millennials in the House. She’s the first member of the Hindu faith to be elected to the chamber and one of just two female combat veterans ever to hold a seat. As a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard after college, Gabbard was deployed to Iraq in 2004 and was deployed again to Kuwait in 2009.

As one of just a few veterans in Congress, she has closely following the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and how the U.S. responds. In making the case for action, Obama welcomed input from Congress, but declared that he had the authority to act without them.

“I saw in Congress we had fewer veterans serving than had ever served before in our nation’s history and you have people making very important decisions about where and when our troops go into battle,” Gabbard tells me. “I think that Congress over the last decade, if not longer, has given up more and more of its authority and its great responsibility of making that decision of when and where our troops should serve our country and what battles they should be fighting in.”

Gabbard flexed those muscles a few weeks after our interview when she joined 156 House lawmakers to vote against Obama’s plan to arm Syrian rebels in the fight against the IS. The measure ultimately passed—but at least Congress had a say. … Read more:

You BROKE me. Into little fucking pieces.

I can’t get my life back on track thanks to you. You meant more to me than life. And life really means nothing to me considering 99% of the time I wish I was dead. Look, okay I’m not gonna blame this all on you, I have some fault in this. But could you fucking have a heart? It obviously seems like you don’t have one, I’m a girl who is very sensitive and doesn’t react very well. No one is gonna understand this, but oh well. I just needed to get my feelings out. No one understands me. I walk the halls at school alone while all those other girls are giggling with their friends, but you, you gave me a reason to not be alone, and what a great feeling that was. Well you’re gone now, and there’s no way I’m going to get that back. And you know, I kinda don’t want that back. You know why?
I’m fucking scared of you.
You wanna know why I’m scared?
You left me for little stupid ass things about me.
You lied.
You said you loved me, when…
It was all a lie.
Do you know what it’s like to walk around faking a smile 98.8% of the time?
I can’t fucking remember the last time I was actually happy before you.
What we had, was beautiful.
And what you did, was awful.
Everyone sees you as the poster child for perfect. Well now that I know who you really are, you’re far from it, and you feel the same about me.

I shared with you my awful past about me wanting suicide, my cousin committing suicide, me cutting, me and my parents relationship with each other deteriorating. EVERYTHING. And you left.
You have to realize I needed help, but no. You just thought that I was some crazy punk who was an immature pigment of a waste of time.
That’s what most people take me as.
As if the people at school don’t take me as a freak enough.

You know what? I might just be a freak, but you made me sane. I never fucking felt like I did. And you know what?
I don’t know if I miss you or I hate you.

I don’t want to love you.

I need to get my life back on track.

My heads been spinning for the past month.

And nobody knows how I TRULY feel.

I want to break the silence between us, but at the same time I don’t.

I’m done trying.

You hurt me.
