don't know why all of a sudden my likes went from 100 per post to 20 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ like I mean if you want a 25/8 active fan account then make one yourself. I have things to do, this acc isn't my number 1 priority
Grateful for opportunities to associate with people who live differently, stand for what is right versus for what is easy, and speak Truth.
Tonight my mind was expanded to another level. This is one of the nights I'll look back on when someone asks why I do what I do.
Thank you for serving Roanoke tonight @bmac1k!

Thus, it's our primary duty as His disciples to share the Jesus Christ handed over to us with the crowd around us. When last did you share Jesus Christ with your crowd?
Again, we noticed that He doesn't just give out the whole bread at once, He breaks it. That suggests that we shouldn't just take the whole Knowledge we have of Jesus Christ and shove it down people's throats by speaking above their heads in mysteries instead of stepping it down. ★
Rather, we should break it down to sizeable bits they can handle and identify with. Even Jesus kept His message simple, brief and in bits. As you roll with the bread breaker, you'll learn when sharing bread (Jesus/the Word) to break it down. ★
Not forgetting that after feeding the crowd with bread through His disciples, He had to bring them apart at Passover and break bread with only them. As a disciple, there are times when bread is given to you to share with your 5, 000 and 4, 000, but there are still times that the bread is broken for you to eat. ★
There are endless depths and parts in Jesus. There are parts of Jesus you may never see to share unless you too continuously eat of Him. Another significant benefit of eating His bread beyond the life it gives, is that it opens your mind and eyes to see and know the things you never knew you never knew. That was the exact experience of the disciples:
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. 31Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, ... [ Lk. 24:30-31 ]NIV.
Friends, do you have life within you? Do you want to be enlightened and your eyes to open to opportunities you've been ignoring? Take in the body of our Lord Jesus broken for you as bread in remembrance of Him, and also broken for you as the Word from the pages of the scriptures.
★ Ponder: And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; [ Lk. 24:31a ]KJV.
May your bread of life bring life to every area of my being. In Jesus name.
★ Anticipate: But Why?
You're an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You're not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it's hopeless
That's when He reminds You
That you're an overcomer
You're an overcomer
opic: Bread Breaker II 🍞
Text: Acts. 20:7 New International Version (NIV) On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight. ★
Still on the bread breaker, we'll look at it closely from different perspectives. First, the bread breaker also told us that He's also the bread of life [ Jn. 6:35 ]. Thus the breaking and sharing of bread represents the breaking and sharing of himself. When he took the bread that night he said:
★ " This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." [ Lk. 22:19b ].
That means the bread is a symbol of His body. He instructed we take it often in remembrance of Him. You may have wondered why would He want us to do that? Scripture tells us here:
Jesus said to them, "Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. [ Jn. 6:53 ]NIV.
That means each time you pick up bread and wine in remembrance of Him (Communion), it's to bring life to yourself. Thus if you are running short of life in any area of your being, be it in your body, mind, spirit, relationships, finances and so on; you shouldn't also be running short of bread. Break that bread.
Also worthy of note in the accounts we read,
is the fact that each time He breaks bread, He gives it to His disciples. The disciples in turn share the bread amongst the crowd. That means Jesus gives Himself to us to share with others.

You don’t need to know all the answers, you just need to believe in the next step! ~ Jen Marie ~
Many of us feel we need to know what the future holds for us. We want all the answers here and now. The thing is, if you knew your whole story now, would you pursue it? Do you think it might scare the living daylights out of you to know? Or would you push for it before you were ready, not allowing for you to learn other important information to help make your purpose successful? Everything unravels for us just at the right time in the right sequence. That's the beauty of your life. Trust in the process <3
Don't let anyone else, or fear, chose the path you go down. You in the end must walk whatever path you choose, and you will walk it alone - Be sure it is no one else's path but yours.
F I X E D eyes. Fixed heart. Fixed mind. Yesterday was such a whirlwind of a day... I had my first session collaborating in the studio, exploring more of my sound and feeling ignited off creative energy. My first night sharing my own songs @soulmateonline. AND kind people posted my bank card, oyster and driving licence that I had lost to my home! Fam - what a day! Haha... but no, in all seriousness, I'm proud of myself for taking another step forward. Yesterday was incredible yet full of fears. Am I good enough to be collaborating? Will people like my songs? Who do I think I am, to think that I have something to share? We can often belittle ourselves in fear of what others may think... yet, at the end of the day, we only regret the chances we didn't take. Fixed eyes, fixed heart, fixed mind. Life is but a vapour. 🦋💙
