“Shelter Of Each Other”

“So it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭5‬-‭13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Happy 1 year anniversary to Hope + Elim! Completely overwhelmed in the most incredible way possible from the weekend events.

God is continuously transforming and inspiring me! Since rehab in 2017 I’ve been learning, listening and reflecting on what God…

“Lead With Love”

This painting was created to honor a man who made the ultimate sacrifice for equality. His message of freedom is still shinning light on the darkness today. It is up to us to take action in a loving way to make this world a better place. We need leaders that lead with love. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a warrior for God and his weapons were love, compassion, mercy and grace.

Only Took A Year
