THIS HIT ME HARD!! My sis bringing that word! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ @kristylyles

Yesterday at work one of my regular male clients came in & this is how our conversation went. Him: "I found you on Instagram. Your page, it's different." Jess: "Different is good", Him: "Depends on the person", Jess: "Meaning?" Him: "Well it's probably the reason why you're still single (he laughed)", Jess: "It is? (I laughed), Him: "What you do on there scares men off. I guess you come across as too good" Jess: "Too good?" Him: "Yeh, guys like girls with a little bit of sexiness" Jess: "Ohhhh so you mean because I'm not naked I scare men off? Cos I'm not in a g-string on my Instagram that's the reason I'm single, rightttt gotcha πŸ‘πŸΌ(sarcastic tone). He continued to explain how I wouldn't be a man's first option because my choice of IG posts can't compete with these "Instagram models" lol. Ladies, some advice, NEVER listen to a man like this πŸ‘†πŸ½ This is the world. Worldly morals, worldly thinking, worldly behaviors & expectations. Lucky I'm not an insecure woman who doesn't know her worth in Christ because this kind of conversation would of completely wiped me out & most likely made me close-up shop. The Holy Spirit is showing me a vision of a tree that is in the middle of a flood, aggressive waters around it, it in the ONLY tree standing, the rest have been ripped out & are floating away with the current. He is saying, "sink your roots in deep. GROUND yourself because you will be like the other trees, easily removed, being taken by the current (issues of life). I want you to be the tree with the FOUNDATION built on Me. Stable, un-movable, not one to conform with the ways of the world." Psalm 92:12 - "The righteous flourish like the palm tree & grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” A Cedar is a unique tree that bends but never breaks! Stop trying to build your house on the sand (the world & what's in it has nothing to offer you, you won't get that satisfaction you are looking for) It's time to build your house on the rock! Matthew 7:24 - "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine & puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose & the winds blew & beat against that house, yet it did not fall."

ME... TODAY πŸ˜‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ Amazingly every year I've woken up on my birthday I've never felt different, but this morning I felt a shift.. Something has awoken, and I look forward to God revealing what that is. Thank you all for being the greatest family to me, you have blessed me beyond belief #MyYear πŸ’ƒ

One thing I've learnt through this journey called life is that it is a very dangerous and lonely one when you aren't walking it alongside Jesus. I've done this life both ways, WITH and WITHOUT Jesus, and trust me, the world will not share you with Him. We know the world as the devils playground and it has been designed to take you out - distractions, temptations, music with subliminal messages, unusual busyness keeping you away from prayer and reading time, stay woke because it's these things that can throw you off! Be alert to subtle changes in your day to day routines, your thought patterns (where does your mind wander away too?), emotions, dreams, what are you looking at on your phone often? Discern whether its healthy or not, because the enemy GENTLY leads you astray and works like a snake in the grass - silent & subtle movements. Revelation 12:9 - "The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray." We have to keep ourselves spiritually accountable and be able to cut off anything that can deter us and become a stumbling block, we know our temptations, distractions and our limits, so set up your safe guard! Be ok with saying "NO" or "NO MORE" to things. Pass up on the offers. This is the healthiest thing for you and your spiritual walk. Be blessed. Proverbs 4:14 - Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil. Avoid it, do not go on it, turn away from it and pass on."

Hey fam, could I please ask for a prayer request! My grandmother, Susie, has a heritable eye disease called Macular Degeneration which eventually causes blindness, she only has her peripheral vision now and I know that I have an Instagram family that believes in miracles and the healing power of God! So could I please ask that you lift her up in prayer and believe with me for complete healing, in Jesus name! Thank u and love u, family! πŸ’œ

LAST NIGHT πŸŽ„ (I love Christmas parties... because I get to eat all the free food)

When you take a photo and your brother looks terrible but you post it anyway because you know you look bomb. #savage

What God has been teaching and building with me over the past few years is how to be a GREAT friend and what that actually means. Naturally, humans are actually very self absorbed, it takes effort to be attentive, to listen, to understand, to spend time with someone, to let hurtful comments roll off your back, to be forgiving, to regularly check in with people to see how they're doing when you aren't in the mood to chat. I love the relationship between David & Jonathan in the Bible. When I studied their friendship I quickly realized that the benchmark of what a true, healthy friendship should be is exemplified by them -- FRIENDSHIP β€’ it does not choose based on what you have to offer (Jonathan was Prince of Israel & David keeper of sheep) β€’ It is Generous (1 Samuel 18:4 - Jonathan gave David his royal armour, sword and robe cos he loved him) β€’ it is Selfless (1 Samuel 18:3 - Jonathan made a covernant to love David as his own soul), β€’ it is Loyal (Jonathan's father was King Saul, the one trying to KILL David, David should of been Jonathan's enemy but he protected & defended his friend) β€’ it keeps its word/promises (After Jonathan died, David kept his promise to show kindness to Jonathan's son and provide for him even when by custom he should have killed him) β€’It Protects (Jonathan knew his father was going to kill David, so he helped David escape from the palace). There are so many more qualities I found in this friendship, these are just the minority I've listed, but I want to encourage you to read their story in the book of Samuel! Study them, learn from them and apply to your life. Be that friend that is rare! A friend that people love to have around, a friend that adds value to others lives -- don't be the "gossip, the user, the complainer, the negative one, the one no one trusts, always late, always about herself, never makes time for anyone, never apologizes, doesn't help with anything.." I used to be many of these πŸ‘†πŸ½But we are women who have Christ, now! WE "FRIEND" DIFFERENTLY lol. Set the standard. Be blessed. Prov 18:24 - "One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."

I want to talk about heart break and rejection. I know what it's like to love someone and them not want you back. I know what's it's like to constantly try and make effort because they're giving you mixed signals - being the one to send them messages first, continually checking your phone waiting eagerly for their reply, only to have them respond HOURS later with a short response, I have been in that place, and the feeling is suffocating. All I can say is during those times, it's best to fall back, press into Jesus like you never have before, feed yourself spiritually but also just to know your value. I know getting rejected takes a toll on the self esteem. But I read this once - "If you offered $100 to a person and they turned it down, you would think they're crazy! How stupid to turn down something that is of high value and something that would benefit their life!" Well look at yourself as that $100. The $100 hasn't changed in value because someone didn't see it's worth. Someone didn't see how much benefit it could add to them. But the truth is, another person will UNDERSTAND that $100 if you offered it elsewhere. There will be another person who is going to recognize your value. There will be another person who will see you just as Christ sees you, so worthy of love, beautifully and wonderfully made with SO MUCH to offer. You are way too wonderful to want someone who doesn't want you back. Rest easy today knowing that your value has not decreased because someone has failed to notice it. YOU ARE ENOUGH. Be blessed. Psalm 147:3 - "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."

I've been laughing for 8mins straight πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The Holy Spirit has been placing the name "Barabbas" on my heart so strongly for the past 5 days. Barabbas was a robber & a murderer who was in jail and on trial the same time Jesus was arrested. Pilate brought both Barabbas and Jesus out infront of the crowd and asked them who they wanted to set free, "Barabbas the murdered or Jesus who is known as the Christ?" What I found interesting when studying Barabbas is that his name in the Aramaic translation actually means, "SON OF THE FATHER", and as much as we don't like him because he was released instead of Jesus, what the Holy Spirit revealed to me was that God loved Barabbas. And through the trialling that day because of Jesus standing up there with him, Barabbas was set free & given another chance at life. Barabbas is us. Imperfect & fallen short of the glory of God, but just like Barabbas' name, we are the Sons Of The Father! The message The Lord wants me to deliver today is that, Yes, Barabbas's life was shameful, dissapointing and full of sin and maybe you are feeling the same right now, but the Lord wants me to remind you of who was standing up there with Barabbas during the trial. Jesus boar the wrath so you could be set free! Jesus put on your iniquity and washed it with His blood. You are forgiven. You are loved! And you have been set free. Claim your freedom and walk in it on this day! Be blessed. John 8:36 - "So if The Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."

After being hurt by so many people in my life I developed a very unhealthy ability to disconnect & cut off people extremely easily without even a second thought. Even people that were really close to my heart or had invested in me for a long time, if they did the slightest thing wrong, they were out. This ruined my friendships & relationships, because I looked at conflict as something that was "abnormal" which it wasn't, conflict happens! Where there is "relationship" there IS going to be conflict & offense, but it's about having the maturity, the grace & communication to talk about it & reconcile the issue with the person, but I didn't have this so I cut people off & got rid of them instead. This was the outcome of a girl that felt very betrayed, neglected, confused, unloved & lived her life with "TRUST NO-ONE" tattooed across her heart. It saddens me that this generation glorify this because it's nothing to be proud of, it's the outcome of disturbances & pain. And if you teach yourself to live by the motto "trust no one" this will destroy your relationship with Christ because trust holds no value to you, you will struggle to trust Gods WORD, His PLAN, His PROMISES & most importantly, HIM. It wasn't until I became INTIMATE with The Lord that I started to get better. Notice how I said intimate πŸ‘†πŸ½Its one thing to "know" God, EVERYONE "knows" God these days, everyone is a "Christian" πŸ™„ but not everyone is intimate with Him. I'm talking about the secret place. The quiet place (Psalm 91) - This is being still with Him & allowing Him to sweep through & minister to the broken pieces of you. THIS is where restoration takes place. In the Bible, when Jesus was feeling weary, He would leave His disciples, go into a garden alone & the angels would come down & start to minister to Him. JESUS Himself needed this, so what makes us think we don't?? Friend, get into the secret place. Step away from what has disturbed you & into a place of surrender and stillness with The Lord. Put on that worship music, close your door & let Him work. I'm praying for you. Be blessed. Psalm 34:18 - The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
