#blackouttuesday
We want to honor every individual who has sacrificed their life for our country. Your life is remembered and celebrated!
Praise The Lord for His grace 🙏. This was the tree in Los Angeles where I used to sleep in the throws of homeless drug addiction 💉

Today marks exactly 15 years since my last night there 🎊

It has been a wild ride, from 8 detoxes and rehabs ⛓ to being a health and fitness professional with a group of wonderful people I am blessed to have the chance to serve. 🤵👰👮👷‍♀️🕵👧👴👵 Jesus did that ✝️ I wanted to encourage you in your walk. If you feel stuck, or broken, or hopeless, there is hope 🙏

You are not alone 🤗

I train others for a living when 15 years ago you wouldn't have trusted me to train your cat 🙀

He can change you! 🦋

He might be already changing you ✅

He is good, He is faithful, and He is always up to something good in our lives. 😇

Keep your eyes on Him today. There is no better place to look 👀
I just want you to know, that I would bend over backwards for you 😉
“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” may be true for dogs, but it isn’t true for humans.

Do you have goals that you passionately pursue?

Everyone values and pursues something. Find where you feel called, find joy, have a sense of fun and adventure!

You never know what God might do through you 😉
Follow me at @gloriesofthegospel for those of you who appreciate faith based posts to help you enjoy our Lord more fully. “And the soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the governor's headquarters), and they called together the whole battalion. And they clothed him in a purple cloak, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on him. And they began to salute him, "Hail, King of the Jews!" And they were striking his head with a reed and spitting on him and kneeling down in homage to him.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭15:16-19

God’s character is that of righteousness and as creatures created in His image, He has commanded us to do the same. There are actions that He forbids and actions He prescribes.

As our creator, He has every right to do so.

Yet we often go “our own way”. We disobey and exalt our will over His.

We are no different than the Roman soldiers in this passage, mocking His authority.

It may feel like we are just following what feels right to us, but the gospel teaches us that it is much more than this. We are telling our King that He has no right to rule here. That we are in charge and our will is supreme.

This may sound heavy and it is, but it is also transformative as we realize we too are mocking the authority of this Jesus whom we are to love.

Let it drive us to repentance and faith in the King who set His Glory aside and suffered such a fate….for us.
