NOTE THE PROGRESSION! ASK....SEEK....KNOCK!!!
Implying that as a fellow Christians we should earnestly continue in our efforts to obtain the capacity to reach the standard of righteousness that JESUS CHRIST set forth!
In prayer this step was a learning curve for me, but after consistently PRAISING and REPENTING, THE HOLY SPIRIT would augment my true need, instilling a new perspective.
I was becoming more and more aware of how the things I was after, never filled my heart with the true joy and happiness, my heart was always yearning for.
James 4:3 “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” I was surmounted with trials due to personal lusts and vanities, but GOD’S infinite wisdom gave birth to an immense faith where I would find myself in a valley of pain mentally or physically, solely ASKING for HIS GUIDANCE, HIS WISDOM, HIS PROTECTION, HIS STRENGTH, HIS PATIENCE, and HIS LOVE then being gifted with the PEACE and CONFIDENCE of WHOLEHEARTEDLY KNOWING THAT it was for my own well being and above all GOD’S GLORY!
So, today I ask myself HE IS AWARE of my current circumstances, why would I ask for my own strength and methods if before I would only dig myself deeper!
HIS GLORY, HIS LOVE, HIS STRENGTH, HIS WISDOM, HIS PATIENCE, PROTECTION is what will allow me to conquer any circumstance that I am in and allow me to faithfully wait for GOD’S DELIVERY!
Therefore denying oneself and depending on CHRIST in everything!
Also brother and sister we read through the holy scriptures that The HOLY SPIRIT also amplified JESUS’ humility during HIS prayer and aside from ASKING GOD for HIS daily needs, HE asked for the needs of others!
Let’s follow suit, and ASK GOD to soften our selfish hearts, becoming servant’s in prayer and asking for the needs of others, as well!
Created with a Purpose that is Lead by HIS Passionate Love! \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

We were not created for the mere sake and working and spending. We were not created to stress after life's sorrows. We were not created to chase after the world's fleeting riches. Rather the Bible says in Psalm 139:14 that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" by the hands and heart of God. We are more than our physical image, more than our paycheck at the end of the week, more our accomplishments and successes, and more than the opinion of others. We have been handcrafted by the Hand of God to Love God, and Love those around us. Live your life in the Purpose and Plans of God! YOU WERE CREATED WITH A PURPOSE! \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Psalm 139:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Today we remember a man that played such a huge role in the 20th century, Pope Saint John Paul II. What a man of courage he was! Last week Ann Marie and I got to pray by his body in St Peter’s basilica (second picture). That was a priceless memory 🙏🏼 One of my favorite stories was how he once met a man that left the priesthood and became homeless. JPII invited him over for dinner and then asked him to hear his confession. After all of the years away from the Church he was restored and is still a pastor today. What an amazing example of a father John Paul was!
Fulton Sheen wrote so profoundly about him and I would encourage you to look into the letters they wrote each other. Saint John Paul II, pray for us.
Sé que muchos (o todos) de nosotros siempre le pedimos a Dios, lo que sea, lo más mínimo, se lo pedimos a él ya sea en oraciones elaboradas o en conversaciones informales a lo largo del día. El punto está en que, suele pasar que lo pedimos con la duda de que si el lo hará o no.
Hoy el Señor nos dice "Pidan y se les dará", al parecer Dios no se cansa de que le pidamos, sino que nos invita una vez más a pedirle como hijos sedientos hacia nuestro amoroso padre, descansando nuestra entera confianza en su presencia. Tengamos hoy y siempre la certeza de que cuando pedimos algo que nos conviene, Dios lo hará.
Ahora bien, si no nos conviene pues debemos saber que el señor nos dará otra cosa que si se adecue a su plan. También, debemos tener en cuenta que con la misma intensidad que pedimos debemos agradecer, porque así como Dios es amoroso siempre está a la espera de nuestro agradecimiento de corazón que nos hace más humanos y nos enseña a amar más como Jesús.

Ill type it incase you can’t read it: *I lay down my need to understand why things happen the way they do. I lay down my fears about others walking away and taking their love with them. I lay down my desire to prove my worth. I lay down my resistance to fully trust Your thoughts, Your ways, and Your plans, Lord. I lay down being so self-consumed in an attempt to protect myself. I lay down my anger, unforgiveness, and stubborn ways that beg me to build walls when i sense hints of rejection. I lay all these things down with my broken boards and ask that Your holy fire consume them until they become weightless ashes. And as i walk away, my soul feels safe. Held. And truly free to finally be me.* Read it through a couple times. Think about it. Lay everything down that is holding you back from fully coming into connection with God. Put all the bad, the evil, the fears, and the pain into God’s hands and trust he will rid of it. #jesus#jesuschrist#christ#god#pray#prayer#quote#quotes#christianquotes#faithquotes#faith#faithful#christian#blessed#blessings#trust#catholic#catholiclove#catholicfaith#catholichurch#inspiretobelikeHim

Selamat pagi, selamat menikmati berkat Tuhan hari ini dan bersyukurlah kepadaNya sebab IA baik.. .
Parents, watch your children, stop them from listening to K-Pop.
K-Pop is not a music but a cultural weapon of the Korean state to increase their cultural influence.
If your childrens are listening to kpop they will denigrate their culture and think only of the kpop! For the sake of your country, say no to the Korean cultural weapon called K-Pop!

Today we celebrate the feast day of Pope St. John Paul II!
When Pope John Paul II was nearly fatally shot during his papacy, he credited his miraculous survival to the intercession of the Virgin Mary, specifically Our Lady of Fatima. JPII’s devotion to Mary was evident throughout his life – his words, his prayer life, his motto, and his coat of arms were all dedicated to the Blessed Mother. The writings of St. Louis de Montfort greatly influenced and strengthened his devotion to Mary.
“From Mary we learn to surrender to God's Will in all things. From Mary we learn to trust even when all hope seems gone. From Mary we learn to love Christ her Son and the Son of God!” - JPII
Pope St. John Paul II, pray for us!
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
