"In the last days, perilous times shall come........and men shall be lovers of their ownselves." Me, myself and I attitude. If I don't get it, nobody would. Greedy. Selfish.
Lord Jesus help your people!!! #overcomingthespiritsofthelastdays#selfless
Tears of gratitude!
This little angel who is battling cancer just made the eyes water a lot. She said “Michael, my daddy and I prayed for your little boy this morning, he is going to be ok.”
Through such tough times for her and the family they still think of others.
We live in a broken world filled with hurting people which makes having Friends often hard and being a Friend at times even harder. But we all need Friends because we were created for fellowship and connection. I never knew true Friendship until I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. But even then it wasn’t until I became Friends with Holy Spirit that I learned how to be a Friend who loves at all times. Holy Spirit is the One Who helps me know when to speak, what to speak and how to speak. He keeps my heart tender and responsive to His Heart so I can minister well to those He has placed in my life. Being a true loving Friend is impossible without Jesus and Holy Spirit. They are the Ones Who help us become selfless because as Son’s and Daughter’s of The Lord we are given a new heart and a new spirit. Here is a promise from the Lord...“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put My Spirit in you so that you will follow My Decrees and be careful to obey My Regulations.”
Ezekiel 36:26-27 NLT You can become a true Friend; invite Jesus and Holy Spirit into your life and allow Them the honor of teaching you how to be the Friend who loves at all times. The bonus and greatest gift in all this is that They will be the Best Friends you could ever hope or ask for! #bethefriend#love#realfriendshipbeginswithJesus#truefriends#friendswholovearethebest#afriendlovesatalltimes#learnhowtobeatruefriend#selfless#GodsWay#Kingdomliving#HolySpiritteachesus#itispossibletobealovingfriend#weallneedrealfriends
Lesson learnt from Mommy. She is the most #selfless person I have ever met. She may not have it all but she continued to give without expecting anything in return. Others help out but would always remind you of what they did for you.
"One definition which the Church has used to define love is; "to will the good of the other." In other words, love is primarily an act of the will. Said another way, love is total self-gift. To put it plainly, love is totally other-centered; it takes no account of cost to self. To love totally, means to be totally forgetful of one's own needs, and to be constantly in search of doing all that is beneficial for the other's soul. And what is most beneficial to the other, if not to lead them to heaven? Therefore, to love is to will God (i.e., Goodness itself) for every soul we meet, and therefore govern all our actions accordingly." | Davide A. Bianchini

She is probably going to kill me for posting this picture but this woman right here is so amazing. She is so selfless, strong, beautiful and smart. She has done so much for me and helped me through even more. Britt you are an amazing person and perfect in my eyes. Thank you so much for showing me happiness. I love you sweetie. 💙💙 #perfect#beautiful#selfless#blonde#gorgeous
This man right here is the most kind-hearted selfless man I have ever met. I am extremely lucky to have found someone who loves me as much as he does. Every time I need or even want something he does everything in his power to make it happen. He is always trying his best to make me happy and that is the greatest thing a girl could ever ask for. Love you Alex!

Surround yourself with the types of people you want to be like. It honestly wasn’t until I truly surrounded myself with like-minded, positive, get-er-done, selfless, loving, genuine people that I felt completely at peace myself. It’s hard to have a bad day when your social circle holds you accountable and is constantly filling you up. 📸: @kye206 ———————————————————-
Today @lillian.desousa flew to DC and EARLY Saturday morning she starts her journey to Ethiopia, where she will be working with the peace corp for TWO YEARS. #brave#selfless#hero ----
Lilly is our cousin who lived with us for 6 months and I can't even explain how much we are going to miss her. ------
When she moved in we said we'd talk about the living arrangement after 2 or 3 months/ because honestly none of us knew how it would work out. We've never had anyone stay with us for more 5 days and she's an independent 20-something. After 2-3 months she started asking our opinion on rentals in our area... AND I was all... "wait, do you not like living here? - we want you to stay." So, she stayed. 😁 Lilly went back to Mobile last week and it's been easy for me to pretend she is coming back bc I still text her multiple times a day. BUT tomorrow I have to stop pretending and Give up the texting. ----
I'm so glad we opened our home. We learned so much from this special season.
If you don't mind say a special prayer or send good vibes to @lillian.desousa / safe travels / positive adjustment. I love you Lilly and can't wait to hear all about your adventures. #peacecorps#ethiopia#heavyheart but #proudcousin
#tbt Listening session for my project during its earlyyy demo stage. Beyond thankful for all the people who came out and gave feedback.
My last body of work was released in 2010. I’ve had countless people inquire about a project since then...that’s honestly a blessing in itself and I’m wild humbled.
I can say with confidence that you’ll be getting my most personal collection to date.
SELFLESS is coming..
Huge s/o to my team #MorValue for being patient and having faith in your boy. I apologize to anyone I diddnt tag.
God is great!
Stay Tuned 🤘🏾🤘🏾 #Zeyi#Selfless#MorValue#3rdqtrking#EP#Project#blessed#music#comingsoon#newyork#passion#purpose
I pray my daughters never lose sight of Him & always make time for what makes their soul happy 💛 Sophia is still a little sick. The nurse I spoke to last night confirmed it and said it was just a cold. Just a simple cold. It's funny how something so simple can cause so much damage. She's missed school, every day she wakes up its "mommy I just want you to cuddle with me" , eats not even half of her meals, plays less than half of the day, has little tolerance for her little sister...of course it wasn't her choice to catch a cold but I was reminded today about the damage one can cause when making choices SIMPLE choices for selfish reasons. Wanna know my favorite thing about Jesus? He teaches selflessness. Something our world lacks. We all wanna do what makes us feel good FIRST. It's always what benefits US FIRST. "i really wanna go visit my friend who just had her baby but.....i really wanna go hang out with so and so...ill just go visit another day" & the days pass and pass and a relationship is lost. "ughhhhhh.......why is my dad calling me every single day! its so annoying ...ill just answer his calls tomorrow" and then the calls stop and its too late. Lets stop thinking about ourselves so much and put others first. Taking care of ourselves is SO IMPORTANT but putting ourselves before others 99.9% of the time is definitley bound to cause some type of damage. Stop yourself today and be intentional. Intentional about your time. Let SELFLESS be your word only for today & pay attention. How did it make you feel?
I find so much joy
in healing others
It drains my soul
but I don't mind it
if it means that
it'll help someone feel sane
I'll give you a house in my heart
A home in me
if it means you'll never have to feel abandoned again. ~Aarah Ahmed~
