  • Is that disagreement you’re having with your mom and/or dad really worth it? 💔 • My mom has dementia now ... barely knows who I am. Time is fleeting, yet so precious in hindsight. 🕰 • If I could take back every moment I allowed the enemy to invade my thoughts telling me to be cold to her, or give her a piece of my mind because my position is so right and she is so wrong, I would. I’d reverse course and humble myself and honor my mother. 👩‍❤️‍👩 I’d forgive her and myself. I’d do what the Bible says and take every thought captive that is not obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 ✝️ • What are you proving by holding your ground and not forgiving?🤬 • Precious time is lost. ⏰ • No one is perfect. Not her. Not you. I miss my mom terribly! I miss having a conversation with her. I miss her knowing our past. It’s awful folks! • Jesus forgave you of your sins. He also forgot them. Why would you hold this from your parents? They love you ... deep down they do. #timeisfleeting #restoration #redemption #forgiveness #seekjesus #forgivethem #forgivethemanyway #humbleyourself

  • #MedalMonday - the Walt Disney World Marathon ✨🏃‍♀️ • This race was incredible. I had an absolute blast on the course and never once felt like I couldn’t finish. I got into a groove and just kept going. I ran. I walked (a lot). I smiled (a lot). I sang. I talked to random strangers. I picked up a margarita at mile 25.5. I finished. 🎉 • Thank you to Kelly and her mom for their support this weekend and every race weekend. They saw me 3 times on the course and Kelly was the one to hand me my marg. She’s truly the best. ❤️ • And thank you to all of you. You guys watched my training journey, from my DNF last year to my picture perfect finish this year. You watched my stories yesterday as I went through the race. You are constantly encouraging me to be a better runner. I love my insta running community and I don’t know what I’d do without your support. ❤️ • My body is sore, but my heart is full. Congratulations to all of the runners from this weekend, whether you ran your first 5k or you completed the Dopey challenge. It’s ALL important and impressive. Today is a much needed rest day for me, but I’ll be back to the training game soon! 💪 • 📸: @kellykillpack#WDWMarathon #runDisney #Redemption #Marathoner #BestDayEver

  • Redemption: The last time i was on Midlands Technical College campus, i was being told that i was being placed on Academic suspension. This was special💯 Huge Shout out goes out to The Administrative staff, especially Ms. Wykeisha Lewis and Mr. Bryant of Richland One Middle college for providing me the opportunity to Inspire their College bound young men. I spoke on the topic “Having millionaire potential with a minimal wage Mindset” #TuckProject #RichlandOneMiddleCollege #redemption

  • Isaiah 55:6-13 King James Version (KJV) 6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. #repentance #heart #regret #sorrow #redemption #salvation #holiness #humility #sin #sinner #sinfulness #compassion #unrighteousness #forgiveness #deliverance #sanctification #righteousness

  • I failed on 1/7/17. I signed up to run my 1st ever Half Marathon during the Disney Marathon weekend. I trained for 13.1 miles & felt ready. However on the eve, we got an email. "Cancellation due to lightning". Disney gave the option of running the marathon & I figured if I was there anyways, might as well run. I got so close to 26.2 miles but quit at 22.4 since I couldn’t take the pain that developed in my feet any longer. I think Plantar fasciitis was caused by stupidly attempting a marathon with new non broken in shoes. I was even told by friends not to use em, but I wouldn’t listen due to some macho “I can do this and don’t have to listen” BS, but they were right cuz I did quit & voluntarily rode the shame bus but was right before the safe zone of not being swept. I still got a medal, but I knew I didn’t earn that. I wasn’t a true finisher. I failed & that feeling ate me. Getting so close, but not succeeding. It’s a life lesson I’ll never forget. I promised to never feel that again & vowed to try again but succeed this time NO MATTER WHAT. 2 years later I got my chance, but with a harder challenge. The Goofy, 39.3 miles in 2 days instead of 26.1 in 1. I trained well & took every preemptive measure for success, but still feared failure. On January 12 & 13, 2019 I continuously remembered failing so I grabbed any motivation I could think of while running that course. Harsh pain returned, but it was NOT gonna beat me this time. Pain is temporary, but glory lasts forever. I was determined. After 3+ hours on Saturday & 7 on Saturday, I finally got redemption as I crossed that finish line. The monkey was finally off my back. I had gone the distance. Perseverance paid off. I finally earned it. I want to congratulate anyone that ran & thank everyone that cheered & gave me support. You guys give me strength. Even though I did the miles, I couldn’t do it without you because this challenge was by far one of the hardest things I have ever done so thank you. Appreciate all your love and support. “You can do anything you set your mind to, man,” & I did. No failure this time. Only sweet redemption. Challenge & elevate yourself. Time to keep going #Dopey2020

  • So this #10yearchallenge is a thing? Alright then I’m your Huckleberry... From taking “before” pics at 13 years old for a diet and training program knowing damn well I was never going to even start. Fast forward 10 years to competing in bodybuilding shows. I only think what could be had I started then instead of letting it continue for 5 more years before deciding enough was enough. 10 years a whole hell of a lot of changes... Physically, mentally, emotionally. The willingness to work and suffer for my goals and the ability to discipline myself for long term goals as opposed to short term gratification. #teamvogelitis #vogelitisbodybuilding #pursuesomethinggreater #workethicisnotdead #prevailoverall #brickbybrick #redemption

  • I don’t know what it’s like to carry a baby in my belly, but (with clear respect for the birthing types and in no way diminishing the real journey of bearing children)...I know what it’s like to spend months and months growing something with your whole heart that sometimes causes you to lose sleep (and toss your cookies every now and then), daily wondering if “this” is really going to happen, if others will be kind or cruel, if you’re doing it right or as best as you can, practicing the rhythm of control then surrender to the God who gave the seed...all before you get to see it outside of you. 😅⠀ ⠀ I know what it feels like to hold a manuscript against my belly: my heart in words on paper in my hands! 📝 ⠀ ⠀ Even having done this book thing before, and not even that long ago ( #2under2), this experience still brings out all the feels for me...maybe this one more than the last because #infertility is just not that talked about. But it’s Day 3 of a writing challenge where my word is “manuscript” - so this is a picture of me with mine. 🥰⠀ ⠀ (Hint: I wondered where I’d find the right spot for this shot, and #soco in #austintexas provided us this most appropriate space 😉)⠀ ⠀ 🌱🌿🌳⠀ ⠀ Have you ever wanted to write a book?

  • eternities of unresolved debt. lightyears of blackness catching up to me. i pay for sins unknown. forsaken in blindness. digging my own grave deeper out of ignorance. held in ethereal chains of pain remorse disrepose and retribution. the silence endures all. but no sound - no matter how gentle, clean, pure or satisfying - endures the silence. shackled to a curse of exile. heart in chains, limbs bonded before me. i can feel you - from great distance. i feel you desire me; how you long for my heart. i can hear you calling from the darkness. but only this can i offer you; the greatest gift i have to give: my sins. #darknightofthesoul #capricornseason #darkgoat #blackroses #sinsofourfathers #eternities #lightyears #darkness #sinsunknown #silence #god #love #redemption

  • capricorn season is always dark time for me. being in my 12th house for nearly all of capricorn, i spend a lot of time alone - more so than normal, as my sun is 12th house capricorn to begin with. i spend extra time alone, inside, sleeping, reading, meditating. quiet peaceful walks in the woods with my dog and general avoidance of everyone. with the additional 17 planets in capricorn at the change of this new year, the amount of 12th house energy churning inside me is staggering. stars unknown. flames unlit. everything is secret, hidden, beyond, and unknown, least of which to me. the encrypted messages that come as dreams almost nightly these days are most curious. but nothing more perplexing than the ethereal walls that i cannot transcend. it seems i am being held in place in order to see something. or learn or face something. i cannot see, i cannot fight, i cannot move, i cannot wake; i can only follow. if god is going to win in the end either way, then it makes no sense to oppose his will. i can only pray to begin to understand, but every day is one step closer to the path for which i am truly destined: greatness. #capricorn #12thhouse #astrology #darkgoat #hidden #secret #beyond #unknown #blessingsindisguise #mixedblessings #curse #solitude #selfwork #starsunknown #flamesunlit #ethereal #destiny #greatness #humility #god #hiddenlight #redemption

  • #redemption. Last #ramen bowl for a while. Noodles were 83% bread flour, 15% dark rye, 2% vital wheat gluten. 42% hydration, 2% sodium carbonate, 1% salt. They tasted awesome, texture was damn good too but I'll keep experimenting. I plan on getting a motorized pasta roller / cutter, doing this by hand is a pain.

  • Reposted from @truth.soldier - "Good people" do not inherit the kingdom of God. The external part of a person may be clean, but his heart remains wicked. Jesus said, For what comes from the mouth is from the heart, And out of the heart comes forth Sin (matt 15:19) . For this reason a man's nature must be changed entirely by God. Since By nature a man is a child of wrath (Eph 2:3), he is enslaved by what he obeys - SIN, which in turn leads to Death (Romans 6:16-18; 23) . But thank God that we as born again believers are saved by his grace through faith alone (eph 2:8-9) in Christ. Although we 👉used to be slaves of sin, 👈 we obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching we were transferred to, 👉 and having been liberated from sin 👈 we became enslaved to righteousness (Rom 6:17-18) . Romans 6:21-22 So what fruit was produced then from the things you are now ashamed of? 👉For the end of those things is death.👈 But now, since you have been👉 liberated from sin and have become enslaved to God,👈 you have your fruit, which results in sanctification — and the end is eternal life! . -------------- #God #jesus #faith #lord #christian #messiah #sin #holyspirit #bornagain #bible #scripture #gospel #salvation #truth #regeneration #redemption - #regrann

  • 10 YEARS: NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED, lol, but it all has... 🦄still a bit of a wild child (with a strong practical streak, which confuses people) who is now channeling all this, lol, into creating and trying to show people the love of Christ to the best of my imperfect ability while doing so. So everything has changed and also feels like in certain ways coming full circle ;) (+ a little aging:) • • In fact, things really changed in 2009/10 when the life I was building to that point fell apart in the wake of the global financial crisis and a perfect storm of other aspects of life. but instead of moving to Boston for a promotion in the wrong industry for me before that all went down, ultimately, I moved to LA in the aftermath.... and just took a leap of faith. God met me out here and He is using ALL OF MY LIFE EXPERIENCE TO help others and I pray I will allow it til the day I go Home. • my passion and wonder keep hope alive for me which keeps me alive and also can be channeled to help build others up. but I have to FIGHT TO KEEP IT ALIVE MOSTLY BY RELYING ON GOD’s sustaining Grace and goodness. Being sensitive is a source of strength but can also make it extra hard in a challenging world. So, hope we all can keep fighting and learn to love ourselves so we can love others well too. again, the ONLY reason I can do either is from the Love of Christ which I cannot deny is now my reason for living. life will keep changing. but i’m really now fully learning to love exactly how God made me, even if some might think i’m extra ;) • • #10yearchallenge #chicago #losangeles #lifefindsaway #stillgoingtofestivals #hollywood #livemusic #outdoors #hopetoplayatone #music #nevergiveup #dreamsyouforgotbutcouldntreally #usinggifts #jesusislord #jesussaves #california #californiadreaming #lollapalooza #redeeminglove #redemption #singersongwriter #musician #sing#enneagram4 (with wings of perfectionism and performer, but MOST DEF A 4, romantic :(

  • Survivor Spotlight - Lorena’s Story: As we continue to highlight Human Trafficking Awareness Month, it can be easy to get so caught up in the problem as a whole, that we forget about the individuals who have actually been impacted by the issue. ___________________ With that being said, meet Lorena! We first met Lorena at her home in June of 2017. Although her sweet, timid smile and innocent giggle would never give it away, this beautiful child had been through unspeakable trauma and undeniable exploitation. She may not have worn her scars on her body, but it was clear that they were engrained in her heart. ___________________ Fast forward a year and a half later you will find a transformed young women. She still has that same sweet smile and innocent giggle, but with every passing day she is growing in confidence and strength. She is taking on leadership roles during group therapy activities and setting new goals for herself. ___________________ “We have seen radical transformation in Lorena, especially over the past 9 nine months,” a Present Age staff member said. “She has a genuine desire to love others well, and a new hunger to know God in a deeper way.” ___________________ Lorena has created a bucket list for herself. One of the items was on her list was to feed the homeless. So, last month during the holiday season, Present Age team members took Lorena to a local shelter to feed the homeless. ___________________ Lorena’s story is a perfect example of the transformative impact God’s unyielding love can have on a survivors life. Check the link in the bio to read Lorena’s full story and stay tuned for more survivor stories. ___________________ #nationalhumantraffickingawarenessmonth #hunantraffickingawarenessmonth #survivorspotlight #celebrateher #brave #survivorstories #growth #transformation #redemption #lethoperise #createchange partnership #strongertogether #awareness #prevention #endhumantrafficking #moderndayslavery #humantraffickinginclt #humantrafficking #endslavery #fortheone #makeadifference #createchange

  • Since it’s Wednesday, I’ve got a little camel story for you. Meet the newest addition to my camel family. I don’t buy a camel every time I see one. In fact, I only have just a few that I own. But when I saw this one, I knew the Lord was wanting to say something through this particular camel. There’s a really long back-story to the reason I have camels and why they are significant to me. A super short explanation would be that they have numerous meanings to me. For example: • • Fulfilled desire In Genesis 24, Isaac sees Rebekah (his future wife) in the distance riding a camel to meet him • • Gifts and surprises In Matthew 2, the wisemen, riding their camels, find baby Jesus and bring him treasure chests of gold, frankincense and myrrh • • Wealth and financial prosperity In Isaiah 60, one of the blessings is that caravans of camels will come and bring gold. In 2 Chronicles 9, the Queen of Sheba comes to visit Solomon and is so impressed with the excellence in which he served that she gave him many camels carrying spices, precious stones and gold. • And then there’s this one. A silver camel. The significance of this one? • Well, silver represents REDEMPTION. When something is redeemed, it means that you regain possession of something that was lost or taken from you. Property, relationships, peace, finances, health, family….whether it was lost or stolen from you…I believe the Lord is saying that this will be a year of redemption. And I have a camel that says so. It’s time! Get ready. It’s all coming back. #thecamelsarecoming #thecamelsarehere #redemption #2019yearofsurprises

  • Help me help 11 people get clean water this year. Link in my bio. I can't imagine walking miles each day in search of leach and parasite infested water. I can forgo a few luxuries to let someone else experience what I take for granted. Clean water. The more I know about @scottharrison and @charitywater the more I want to be a part of this great cause. For those in recovery, he is one of us. Such a story of redemption and hope. We have it in us to make a difference in this world. A dollar. A kind gesture. A kind word. Helping your fellow man. Being of service to others. Becoming a part of something greater than ourselves. We can all be World Changers. As @brevived would say "We were born to be a world changer." / I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.’ “Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:35-‬40 (The Message) #charity #charitywater #water #give #hope #life #live #living #help #helping #faith #love #peace #serenity #sober #SoberLife #sobriety #Recovered #Recovery #Beauty #beautiful #donate #redemption

  • Leonard: Goddess Of Electric Gold I wish I could leave these words unwritten, you could finish this song each time you listen. There is a jealous moon laying siege to my room, earthquakes and rattlesnakes wait in the gloom. My brain and heart and other caverns where thoughts and feelings dance their sabbath, I’m having visions fading into each other, it’s human, it’s natural umbrella’s and lobsters. She says ‘let’s have some fun, And pulls out a gun... She says ‘let’s make a deal: I’ll be your queen, the one from your dream, if you’d just make this real’ And then all hell breaks loose In her underwear and pearls She said those magic words So I left to save the world She’s my goddess of electric gold. She’s my goddess. Tonight your James Joyce’s most unruly daughter. Your Infamous voice like Charlie Chaplin’s laughter. I said ‘Darling do you have a cure for me? She said ‘Salt water should do it : walk into the sea’ There’s a look on your face like you are a survivor the tragedy is your life’s the disaster. Now I am sitting here tapping out the old remorse code, sometimes all I need is just one more joke. she says ‘let’s have some fun,’ She pulls out a gun and says let’s make a deal, I’ll be your queen, the one from your dream, if you’d just make this real’ And then all hell breaks loose In her underwear and pearls She said those magic words So I left to save the world She’s my goddess of electric gold. She’s my goddess. You are one in a million One in a million, one in a million Like my chances, like my chances with you.... Your a goddess? ‘well how do you do 😉 Words and music Kieran Leonard / Saint Leonard ©️ 📷 @deanbrannagan my mate

  • Luke 15: Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” So He told them this parable:“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 💗Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.💗💗 #god #klove #jesus #redemption
