Repost from @revelationcloth @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost Love of dress and pleasure is wrecking the happiness of thousands. . . . To dress plainly, abstaining from display of jewelry and ornaments of every kind, is in keeping with our faith.
The inward adorning of a meek and quiet spirit is priceless. In the life of the true Christian the outward adorning is always in harmony with the inward peace and holiness. . . . It is right to love beauty and desire it; but God desires us to love and seek first the highest beauty, that which is imperishable. (Reflecting Christ 265)
Kecintaan akan pakaian dan kepelisiran sedang menghancurkan kebahagiaan beribu-ribu orang. . . . Berpakaian sederhana, tidak mempertontonkan perhiasan dan segala macam ornament, adalah sesuai dengan iman kita.
Perhiasan di dalam diri dari suatu roh yang lemah lembut dan tenang tidaklah ternilai harganya. Dalam hidup seorang Kristen sejati perhiasan dari luar senantiasa sesuai dengan kedamaian dan kesucian dari dalam. . . . Tidak salah mencintai keindahan dan menginginkannya; tetapi Tuhan ingin agar kita mencintai dan mencari terlebih dahulu keindahan yang tertinggi, yang tidak akan binasa. (Memantulkan Kristus 259)

God’s Best Plan
Most of us can be tempted into jealously, envy, and even greed, especially when pursuing publication becomes more of a priority than pursuing a deeper relationship with God and being content with His best plan for our lives.
To protect ourselves, we can establish a system of accountability. A writing and prayer partner can help us stay focused on God’s wonderful plans for all of His beloved servants.
Instead of being jealous about what the Lord’s doing in and through other writers, we can celebrate them, support them, and encourage them because we’re excited about what God’s got planned for us.
Lord, thanks for loving us and helping us trust Your goodness. Please give us confidence in the gifts and messages You’ve entrusted to us, so that we can encourage others You’ve chosen to serve alongside us.
Help us to be ready for the opportunities You’re going to give us to share Your truth and love through the words You’ve given us to write, as we embrace Your plan as the best plan for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. --- Write to Worship with Xochitl E.

Level 2 -Alignment Centered Vinyasa
#TBT#playing#beachhouse . I first started appreciating their music back in 2004, during my undergrad studies. Impressive how it still sounds fresh to me and the memories it evokes. There is an oniric atmosphere they know how to build so well that takes me over everytime. Love this album and the feelings it brings me. I like to remember where I came from and such music helps me on that matter. Well, just listening this one to keep something important in mind. Mostly the fact that it's been almost 15 years and yet I am still here... despite the challanges. Today this is the official mood: it rains outside, I am alone and, like the lyrics says: "home again". Listening so I can always remember, listening so I can never forget. At least the good things and the abysses I've been overcoming through the years. #music#deezer#devotion#cool#smooth
J: Just now when you walked in. And I saw your face. I had a memory. Of seeing my mother’s face when I was little. Seeing her cry. Seeing the painting on the bathroom wall.
P: I’m sorry?
J: My mother’s face.
P: You said a painting. Something about a painting.
J: I did?
P: Yes a painting.
J: Oh, that’s strange. I didn’t mean to. I was talking about my mother. She had already gone.
J: Gray. She went gray very young. And it gave her a strange, ghostly quality. And she towered above me. And the painting, oh, the painting. Yes, I did mention a painting. There was one in the bathroom, the thing is, can I ask you a question, this is off the topic, or maybe it isn’t. I don’t know, since I’ve never been in therapy before, I feel I need to find out a few things. A few things about…like how do you know I’m not lying?
P: How do I…?
J: See Margaret Mead, she wrote this book, a seminal work of anthropology really, if I may be so bold to use the word ‘seminal’, on my first day of therapy, Coming of Age in Samoa, is the name of the work, otherwise known as a book, but sometimes we in the know say ‘work’ maybe to imply it’s part of a body of work we are familiar with. Anyhoo, she went to prove that these people, to show that the Samoans weren’t neurotic. That adolescents in particular, samoan adolescents, weren’t neurotic, like they are in the west. Well, she proved it. She proved it. They were not neurotic. They were “well-adjusted.” But the thing is, they were lying, all of them, all the samoans were lying to Margaret Mead. Which is the thing, you know, about studying other cultures and all that and saying oh, these people are well-adjusted this is the way to live and all that, nature and all that, it’s supposed to be a kind of reverence for the other, but it really amounts to a kind of noble-savage-ing. So, then, back to my question: how do you know your patients aren’t lying to you?
P: I trust them.
Looking back to this past Sunday’s worship service where @thekatinas blessed us in leading worship.
At Bethel we are all about relationship: our relationship with God first and then with each other. Put that together in a worship service along with a powerful word and the results can be pretty heavenly!
Have a blessed Thursday! ✨✨🙏
"True bravery recognizes the need to release our vision and even our desire to control as much as possible, so our dreams can be fulfilled as God sees fit. It takes real trust to believe God is the author of the dreams even if they don’t play out the way we hope they will." From @youversion "Brave is the New Beautiful" Devotion 😊

So excited to share my musical heart offerings with you all this wknd! 💓🥁💃🏼
🌟Friday🌟 from 8pm-10pm I am co-leading a Kirtan at @rootmammabk alongside the lovely @thekris10way @desi_nyc & @zackvbrady ! This will be a beautiful night of devotional chanting in community with some of my originals mixed in!
💫Saturday💫 from 4pm-8pm I will be co-creating An Evening of Healing at @earth_arts_center organized by @wanderingrootsbk! My offering for this event will be a performance of (almost!) ALL of the healing and spiritual music I have written since we opened Root Mamma back in September! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime event of Fall/Winter ‘17/‘18 Root Music!
This will be a multifaceted healing event, beginning with a movement class led by the incredible @kkwieder, with a community circle in between, closing with my music :-) My offering will begin around 7, and the event will officially start at 5pm sharp!
Both of these events are donation based, hope to see your beautiful faces there!!
“Living in presence means walking through life without a map, following only the commands of the heart and being guided by the Holy Spirit. Presence itself guides you. Being present, it’s impossible to run away from yourself. In fact, you only find yourself and recognize your gifts and talents in presence, because it is the manifestation of spontaneity. Through presence, you become a pure channel of the divine will.” #PremBaba
Control-The Art Of Unity
The Art of Unity with Bill Farr is devoted to uniting body, mind, and spirit, offering information on nutrition, meditation, and self-discovery.
Life often has a bigger and more evolved plan than many people are executing. Happiness, health, security, and abundance should be a part of every life plan and is possible when in good emotional, physical, and spiritual health allowing for the release of struggle and suffering. #AmazonFireTV#billfarr#unity#devotion#body#mind#spirit#meditation#selfdiscovery#control#health
Christ came bearing truth. And so corrupt is the earth and the values of its people (and by comparison, so perfect His truth - so completely correct His ways) - they nailed Him to a cross.
Anyone who is IN Christ is a new creation - a slave to righteousness and bound by obedience to seek a life in-line with God's will - His truth and commands, as revealed in scripture. NOT a truth we design for ourselves, based on our feelings or notions of what is good, nice, or pleasant.
The more we strive for holiness, the more apparent the divide between God's chosen and the slaves of sin (and lovers of this world) becomes to us.
"For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world." (1 John 2:16)
We (daily) work to steer clear of what offends our creator - the sins that wish to take His place as ruler of our hearts and minds - and in faith we submit to God, crucifying the selves of our past (and the longings for earthly pleasure and praise). And for it, we should expect to be hated, as Christ was hated.
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you." (John 15:18–19)
No amount of earthly suffering can come close to competing with the glory that awaits God's faithful, in eternity (2 Corinthians 4:17). And we know that we do not face troubles alone. God holds us - preserves us in faith - and is with us. And we know our inheritance is secure (1 Peter 1:3–4).
My friend @phresh_88 and I Designed these Shirts Intentionally. The Christian Faith seems to be under attack by those who believe that it is completely contradicting to Celebrate One’s Blackness while also Affirming the God of the Bible. I beg to differ! You don’t have to choose between the one or the other. You can be and are both. I encourage you to do your own unbiased research. Study Diligently and Pray Fervently. The Myth of Christianity Being a “White Man’s Religion” is short-sighted.

Hope everyone’s making the most of their week! The warmer weather has my mood up so much!! Lots of energy in the gym so I’m making the most of it while it’s here. Love adding in “touch up” movements to finish; like calves and abs every day 💙
Even if it’s only small sets doing muscle groups that recover fast and are stubborn to grow can help so much!!
Russia, as example, people are very deep, spiritual, but not usually feel free to talk about God... maybe coz of Soviet times... but without this connection everything is plastic. Even when you are going through ayahuasca experience - it's should be divine... people around the world getting into troubles with false yogis and shamans if you are not aware whom u invite to your sacred mind space... Highly recommend this book, by Dharam Vir Mangla ~ God & Self-Realization~ #bookreccomendation#yogi#yoga#sacred#devotion
