romans 4:5

my teacher for ap world gave us a study assignment to make a powerpoint for (almost) every chapter of every unit. we have our own book that we use so im not sure if the chapters align to the books most schools use but the content should be the same

i will be updating this weekly when i can to add the powerpoints i just made, but please be patient! these take a lot of time but i really want to help other people succeed. 

the powerpoints include important points from each section and subsection, as well as an overview of the main topic for each section, as well as a top ten things to remember slide for every chapter.

Cry

Word count: 637

Paring: Implied Prinxiety

Warnings: Crying. A lot of crying. Self-indulgent self-doubt. Swearing. Kind of hurt/comfort. Actually ends okay. Logan is kind of a dick when he talks too much but it’s just implied. Roman & Virgil love each other, but neither say it out loud. I’m sorry in advance. 

Summary:.“It’s okay to cry once in awhile, Princey. It’s okay to be vulnerable,” Virgil murmured, which seemed to make Roman cry harder.

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
—  Romans 12:4-5
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
—  Romans 5:3-4
Much of your suffering is a result of your inner darkness, and the evil in others. As you wait with expectation for your complete sanctification, your sinful nature keeps you bent towards evil, and this often opens a door to suffering. Other times, it is the result of uncontrollable circumstances, of loss, of physical deterioration, of persecution, or of the harmful effects of someone else’s sin. We live in a decadent world where trouble abounds. But suffering is never without cause, for we know “suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope” (Romans 5:3-4). God changes us through every struggle and every moment of suffering.
—  Tim Challies

Roman Reigns confession

Roman works 4-5 matches a week, missed his one year wedding anniversary with Galina, missed JoJo’s birthday and numerous holidays, continued working even though he knew he was injured until he was forced to have emergency surgery to save his life, and while he was out got help for his acting skills but yet, according to haters, he has no passion for the business and gets things handed to him because he’s part of the Anoa’i family

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
- Psalm 130:5-6 (NIV)

God set a part the Levites (descendants of Levi, son of Jacob) to serve to look after the temple (Deuteronomy 10:8). One of the tasks that the Levites would have performed would have been guarding the temple, being watchmen, guarding the temple overnight. The reason why they did this was because the temple was important, and furthermore, God had told them to do so.

But the psalmist here says that he waits on the Lord MORE than the watchmen waited for morning. This is a powerful statement because this was an important task and something that was actually pleasing in God’s sight. However, the psalmist recognized that he must wait for the Lord even more than something that pleased the Lord. WOW. Even when we’re doing God’s work, even when we’re desiring something that pleases Him, such as a godly marriage, or to travel the world and get involved in mission work, we must still wait on the Lord. In the New Testament, there are quite a few verses for believers on patience and endurance and how it relates to our faith walk (*I’ve listed the scriptures below for your reference). Remember this even if you’re:

1. Waiting on a text/message/call/invitation to hang out from a guy from church, or a guy that you consider to be “godly husband” material

2. Waiting to be able to leave the job you’re working to be more involved in a passion God has placed on your heart

3. Waiting for your family member or friend to realize their worth and who they are in Jesus

4. Waiting on an opportunity that would allow you to use the gifts God has given you.

5. Waiting on results from a doctor or someone in authority at work or school

Whatever it is, even you’re waiting on something that would bring glory to God, we must still wait on Him more than we wait for anything else!
