word of god speaks

Harry can only say pure things. He always says the most inspiring and lovely things.

“Be nice to nice”
“Love is Love”
“Despite the company outside, I believe in equal rights for everyone. I think God loves all”
“Be nice. Be good”
“Unity and Love. Always equal”
“Be a Lover. Choose Love. Give Love. Love everyone, always”

He’s the purest heart and soul. He only wants to spread love. Always.
How can a human being have all this godness in his body?

You cannot say that you’re having trouble hearing God if you’re not reading His Word. He is speaking to you loud and clear, and it’s all written down in the Bible.

You want to hear from Him? Start there.

But he answered, “It is written, ”Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.“ (Matthew 4:4)

Like food that sustains our physical bodies, our spirits depend on the Word of God for life-supporting nourishment. Here, after 40 days of fasting in the wilderness, Jesus speaks the Word of God from Deuteronomy 8:3 to overcome the temptation of the devil. The Son of God, a man who possessed divine power to defeat the enemy, chose the weapon of Scripture to combat Satan.This powerful Sword is our weapon too—the same spiritual resource we have today—the Word of God! Are you feeding your spirit by feasting daily on God’s Word?

Chaos in the Pantheon

((A/N: Here it is! Marvel/Avengers Greek Pantheon AU! I so hope you guys like it. It’s starting slow, so I’m sorry, but I do promise if you can stick with it, it gets better. I’m also pretty sleep deprived, so if it’s bad I’m sorry. 

Summary: There is war in the Pantheon. The people of Greece and the worlds beyond are suffering in chaos. The one who is believed may change this, is you. It is up to you to climb Mt. Olympus and to speak with the gods, demand in whatever way you can that the destruction below stop. 

But things are never that simple, and soon you find that there is more going on than meets the idea. With no warning you are thrust into a world of gods, monsters, and so much more. You must go head to head with those you have worshiped and decide how you may save your people. And above all… why you?”

Pairing: Bucky Barnes (Ares) x Reader

Word Count: 2.5k 

Warnings: None))

Thunder boomed above your head as clouds darkened, the simple black sandals on your feet carrying you as fast as could be managed as you ran home. This would be the third storm this month, and the month itself was only half-over. For the time of year it was uncommon to have such chaos thrust into your world. Which would be fine, except your city was still reeling from the earthquake that toppled Ares’ temple. Those who weren’t picking up their homes or burying loved ones had taken to the temples, desperately making offerings and repairing statues.

Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called.

Another reason why I'm uncomfortable with r*ylo.

My last post about this garnered some negative attention from reylos who called me an idiot, but I really don’t care about them at this point. I think the main reason why reylo makes me uncomfortable is because from the very beginning, I connected SO strongly with rey. I felt like I had been written into a Star Wars movie. My mother even told me I looked like Daisy Ridley after she saw the film. I was a self sufficient, smart, and independent child. My parents worried about me because I was their first, but they didn’t have to. I’ve always loved science and technology, I’ve always stood up for myself.

Rey felt like me, and I felt like rey. I even cosplay rey, which I’m currently working on refurbishing and making more screen accurate. I felt the emotions rey felt in TFA, and I even cried while listening to Rey’s theme afterwards. That’s the reason why reylo gets under my skin and drives me mad, is because I feel for her so deeply. Star Wars is my escape, and rey is who I connect with. Seeing her in pain and suffering by the hands of Kylo ren didn’t make me ship them, it made me nauseous.

Thus ends my explanation part 2 lmao, thanks if you read this

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. - 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)
If you truly desire to hear God’s voice in your life, talk to Him and read His Word everyday.
Paul encourages Timothy with these words in the passage above and it serves as a reminder to us that God’s voice is our guide, and His Word gives us instructions on how to live. We must not forget that if we truly want to experience His Word in our daily lives, we have to actually spend time digging into His Word; reading and truly digging into what He has to say.
So never stop reading His word. Never stop having faith that God IS speaking to you. Be encouraged with these verses below to spend time reading, highlighting, and praying about when it comes to whatever it is you’re faced with!
1. Wondering what you should do about a guy you’re talking to and if it’s serious or not? Read Pr. 4:23, Phil. 4:7-8, 1 Col. 10:31, 2 Co. 6:14
2. Trying to think through quality friendships and what they mean in your life? Read Pr. 18:24, Titus 3:1-2
3. Struggling with temptation or other battles in your relationship? Pr. 25:28, Eph. 4:2-3, 1 Co. 16:13, Ps. 107:9
4. Feeling alone? Weak? Powerless? Read Col. 1:18-20, Is. 40:29
5. Getting anxious about upcoming big decisions or an uncertain future? Read Ps. 37:7, 2 Co. 4:16, Lam. 3:25, Zech. 4:10
Also, be mindful of reading all of these verses in their proper context. You can do this by starting to read the entire chapter, and if you have trouble understanding you can search for Biblical commentaries online, or at your local library or bookstore. It’s worth it to have!
Of course there are many more scriptures to help us through our daily lives, but let us remember that the more we dig into what God is saying to us, the more we will begin to see how useful and important His Truth really is in our lives!

Don’t continue bragging.
   Don’t speak proud words,
because the Lord God knows everything.
   He leads and judges people.

One of the greatest signs of hope for a church is when God comes to them and speaks a hard word, because it means that they’re still His people. The most terrifying thing is when the only thing you hear is good stuff.

Ponyboy x reader--Requested from prompt list

“H-how long have you been standing there?”

You and Pony have the same math class. It’s not your favorite class but you like it more because he’s in there. He makes math class less sucky.

You like him a lot. He’s such a sweet and caring person. Being a greaser yourself, you understand the struggles he has dealing with the Socs. Usually, in  math, you partner up with him because neither of you have friends in that class. He’s really nice to talk to, you just wish you knew him better.

Today in math, you have to work on a small group project.

“Pick your partner. And no Susan, only groups of two.” He says. Susan huffs out a breath; she’s the kid who always asks if we can work in groups of three. You suppress your laughter. You dislike Susan with a passion. She’s just some Soc girl that’s been too pampered.

You catch yourself looking at Pony, when suddenly he looks back at you. You immediately dart your eyes back to the board.

Dammit, you scold yourself. You see him smile before he turns back around. Did he smile at me? you ask yourself. No probably not.

“Get into your groups.” the teacher instructs. Ponyboy gathers his stuff and struts over to your desk. You smile as a way of greeting him.

“Morning (Y/N).” he says.

“Good morning.” you say. God, (Y/N). You sound way too happy to see him. Calm down. you scold yourself again. 

“Let’s see here we need to…” he says more but you don’t hear. You’re too caught up in the way his hair is combed back. The way his green-gray eyes scan over the assignment sheet. The way his lips move slightly when he reads it. 

“(Y/N)? Hello?” Pony says.

“Oh sorry. Day dreaming, I guess.”

“I do that, too. No need to worry about it.” You still blush.

“Let’s get down to business.” you say. (Mulan song plays in the background)

At lunch, you go and sit with your friends. They chatter about nonsense while you still daydream about Ponyboy. You imagine you two going out on a date. It’s one of your favorite daydreams.

“(Y/N), what do you think?” your friend, Penny, asks pulling you into the conversation.

“I-I don’t care.”

“You weren’t even paying attention.” Penny says.

“Of course not. Too busy thinking of that guy….What’s his name again?” Victoria asks.

You cross your arms over your chest. “You know his name.”

You feel someone step up behind you. “Ponyboy Curtis, right?” Oh God. Susan.

You freeze and don’t speak a word. “Oh come on (Y/N). We all know it’s true. Why don’t we go tell him now? He’s over there with that greaser.”

You look over to see Pony sitting with Johnny, his best friend. You still refuse to speak. 

“Fine then.” Susan says. She grabs a milk carton off of the table and holds it above your head. 

“You’re childish.” you tell her. She tips the carton to the side, pouring the milk on top of your head. It’s in your hair, on your shirt, dripping onto your pants. You are about to bust the bitch’s lip when you’re suddenly ushered away from her and your friends too.

You look and see Ponyboy Curtis holding your hand. “H-how long have you been standing there?”

“Long enough.” He leads you to the girl’s bathroom.  “I can’t go in.”

“Yeah, I know.” you say, still upset that Susan poured milk on you. 

“I-I’ll get you some paper towels. Uhhh…here–” He takes off his hoodie and hands it to you. “Your shirt’s soaked but I can’t do anything about your pants. Go in there and replace your shirt with my sweatshirt.” You nod and do as he said. 

A minute later, you’re out of the bathroom, trying to dry your hair. Once it feels dry enough, you run your fingers through it.

“I’m real sorry she poured that milk on you, but you could have just told me you liked me.”

“W-wh–” He smirks.

“Wanna go to The Dingo tomorrow at 7?” 

“Yeah. 7.” He smiles and he walks you back to where Johnny is sitting.

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.

You know why i believe every word in the Bible? because that’s the only book that showed me who i really am, sinner in need of Savior. It convicts me in my disobedience and it gives me hope whenever i’m distress and need of love. It shows me the way God wants me to live and it enlightens me about the things that i know not. God’s Word is alive because it speaks to me, God wants me to hear His voice through His Word. It’s a bread that i need to be spiritually alive. It gives me strength everyday to live in a manner worthy of Him. 

I want to soak in His Word and allow it to transform my life to glorify Him who deserves all my praise. 

anonymous asked:

Hi so i dont know what to do right now bc the majority of my friend group is queer and some of their not mutual friends have told them to stay away from me bc im a christian and for some reason they think it automatically makes me like all the terrible homophobic christians even though thats probably the opposite of me and it makes me sad and idk how to show them that im not what they think and not all christians are like that and most importantly have Him shine through me to them?

Hello dearest!
Oh boy. For starters I can tell you it is completely possible to be friends with someone who is a member of the LGBT community and still be firm in your beliefs. My roommate is gay and we’re amazing friends! Heck he’s even spoken to his friends to say that not all Christians are the way some people have portrayed us; as hate-mongers or homophobes. I can’t really give you any sort of tricks or say exactly what happened but I can tell you I offered our friendship, our roommateship, and every conversation we’ve ever had to God.
There was something God showed me during this whole ordeal that has changed my perspective on the LBGT community and how we as Christians should treat them. Think about what your job as a Christian is: is it to save them? To fix them? To remove their sin? No! You’re simply on this Earth to love so deeply that it points back to Jesus. Your job is to point to the one who does save them, who will fix their hurt, and who can remove their sin. I have firm belief that if we point someone to God and they choose to follow Him that He will show them what is keeping them from His presence.
When you surrender your fears to God and ask Him to make you a beacon of His love, fantastic things happen. I see him asking for prayer for daily things, I hear him audibly thank God for little moments, and I’m blown away to see how God is working on his heart and mind. It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. Beloved the only thing I kept in mind throughout the whole ordeal was Love like you have been loved. That’s it. Of course we’ve had sort of awkward conversations but God gave me the words to speak truth in love at that time.  Speak truthfully always but we are not here to condemn them, not even Jesus did that, we are here to love like He did. So be there for them, be a shoulder for them to cry on, be encouraging in their hopes, pray for them, ask them how you can pray for them, be a friend in the way Jesus was to you when you were still lost.
We’ll be praying for you, lovely! Keep your head up!
