REQUESTS GRANTED ♥ As requests were received this week.

Revelation 2:10 was requested twice by different people while the rest were requested once. Thanks for sending them in and for being God’s way of leading me to such encouragements from the Word again. God bless you!

Photos are free from Canva. I picked them out and added the Scripture for the solid foundation of inspiration. Thank you to the Canva team and the photographers behind these remarkable images.

I’ll be taking photographs again soon for more Scripture in Pictures that will be, once more, totally by yours truly :) For now I hope these help.

Feel free to send in your requests any time.

Friendships serve its best when under God’s grace :) Be the friend who walks the talk of faith and leads loved ones to Christ Jesus.

The heartfelt counsel of a friend
is as sweet as perfume and incense. - Proverbs 27:9

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Ephesians 6:13

After Thought

God will empower you to stand your ground as evil increases. Stubbornness is a virtue when confronting wickedness.~ Pastor Bob Barnett

Anonymous: I've been dating this guy for a while that I met on a Christian dating site. On his profile he said that he didn't want to date someone who was married before and I was married once. He wrote that he wanted "our first marriage to be our last marriage." I don't plan on ever telling until after he proposes to me, if that ever happens. How can I get him to see that being divorced shouldn't be something that would exclude me as a potential wife for him?

Thank you for being open to share this. I hope you consider…

It’s deceitful to not tell him the important details about you esp. when you know he has concerns against some of them. It’s a lie to keep things hidden for your agenda of being engaged while he remains uninformed over something that you know matters to him. It’s manipulation to keep things in the dark while maintaining a “Christian relationship” and trying to change a person’s mind. Healthy relationships - whether Christian or not - do not operate on hidden details based on a one-sided agenda. It’s no longer Christ-centered and grace-surrendered when we do things our way for our benefit esp. when deceit is in the strategy. Sin gets in the way and sin doesn’t work for us. Sin is the very reason the LORD Jesus had to redeem us and enable us for what is best ♥

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. - Philippians 4:8 NASB

Dear sister, please seek the advice of the female mentors within your church so that you would be given more enlightenment on this. It will certainly help to have the advice of seasoned, married women under God’s grace :) Divorce is a serious concern not just for men and we cannot just say people have to embrace this. There is God’s work in marriage that people value.

I’ll be keeping you in prayers, dear sister. God bless you!
