Lord 👑

AMEN ⚜️🙏⚜️

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

AMEN 🙏🙏⚜️

We aren’t meant to live a life of excess.

While it is good to have wealth and material possessions, we should instead commit these things to help those who are in need instead of accumulating stuff we know we won’t use.

Giving is part of being a Christian, and it is always best to give to those in need.

Your life will be an example to others of how to live in moderation.

Dear God, I pray that as I live my life as a Christian, as your child, may I never have selfishness as a priority in my life.

Help me to be selfless in all my ways, O Lord, so that I may be an example of you to your children.

You set the standard first, O God, and I ask that you help me to walk in this standard.

There is no way I can do it in my actions or power.

I thank you, Father, for this great faithfulness.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.🙏🙏

AMEN ⚜️🙏⚜️

Famous Poet ⚜️⚜️

Let Evening Come – Jane Kenyon

Let late afternoon light shine through chinks in the barn, moving up the bales as the sun moves down.

Let the cricket take up chafing as a woman takes up her needles and yarn.

Let evening come.

Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned in the long grass.

Let the stars appear, and the moon discloses her silver horn.

Let the fox go back to its sandy den.

Let the wind die down.

Let the shed go black inside.

Let evening come.

To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop in the oats, to air in the lung, let evening come.

Let it proceed as it will, and don’t be afraid.

God does not leave us comfortless, so let evening come.

Jesus 🙏🙏

Amen 🙏🙏

Jesus is warning the apostles that they, too, will suffer for believing in him.

It wasn’t long before his warning became reality.

The early Christians were put out of the synagogues and the Jewish leaders did try to kill them.

We remember how Saul stood by while Stephen was stoned and then went and tried to find other Christians so that they, too, could be killed.

It wasn’t until Jesus revealed himself to Saul that he realized the error of his ways and became the great apostle Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles.

Acts records the arrests of Peter, John and others for preaching about Jesus.

Paul was also brought before the Sanhedrin.

All were beaten.

The only reason these were released was that the Jewish leaders feared the backlash from the people because of the miracles of healing that occurred in their presence.

Through the centuries, people have been persecuted for their beliefs.

This continues today in certain parts of the world.

But persecution can be more subtle today.

A Christian company operates craft and home goods stores that do not open on Sundays.

Now, the state where I live used to have some of the strictest “blue laws” in the country.

That means that for quite a while, very few businesses were allowed to open on a Sunday.

These laws were overturned about forty years ago.

Because this Christian company refuses to open on Sunday, they cannot open a store in this state.

Other Christian companies find it hard to get permits as well.

Over two thousand years later, the warning for believers is still valid.

Amen 🙏🙏

The Science Behind Anxiety: How to Harness Biochemistry for a Better Life

Anxiety is a common experience for many people, but did you know that it may not always be a result of external factors? Instead, it could be a result of a process called methylation and the excess catecholamines entering the brain. This can result in the body entering a mild fight-or-flight response, even in the […]

The Science Behind Anxiety: How to Harness Biochemistry for a Better Life
Anxiety is a common condition affecting people of all ages, races, and lifestyles. While it’s often seen as a mental or emotional issue, there’s actually a lot of science behind it. In fact, anxiety can be traced back to specific chemicals and biological processes within the body.

At its simplest, anxiety is the result of an overactive fight or flight response. When the body perceives a threat, it releases adrenaline and other hormones that prepare us to either confront the danger or run away from it. In cases of anxiety, however, this response can be triggered by non-threatening events, leading to a chronic state of heightened arousal.

Fortunately, there are several ways to harness biochemistry to manage and even overcome anxiety. One of the most effective strategies is through targeted breathing exercises, which have been shown to activate the parasympathetic nervous system and reduce the body’s stress response. This can be achieved through practices like deep belly breathing, box breathing, or simply taking slow, intentional breaths.

Another powerful tool is regular exercise, which has been shown to increase the production of endorphins, the body’s natural mood-boosting chemicals. Exercise can also help regulate cortisol levels, a hormone that’s closely tied to stress and anxiety.

In addition to these techniques, there are also several natural supplements that can help support a healthy mood and reduce anxiety. These include omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and certain herbs like passionflower and valerian root.

It’s clear that anxiety isn’t just a mental state – it’s a complex interplay of hormones, chemicals, and biological processes. By understanding the science behind anxiety and implementing strategies to regulate these systems, we can all take steps towards a more peaceful, fulfilling life.
