Q-West at night.
whatitsliketodie: derekthornton: This is a photo I took at night on the base where I am stationed. Hoping that’s sunrise or sunset off in the distance and not explosions. Actually, it is just lights from the area where we get ready to pick up convoys for transport to another base. You can see it even on the road when you are a good 20 kilometers away on the road.
True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less.– Timothy Keller (via chrislazo)

A good way to pray, by Nehemiah.
chrislazo: Let your heavy burdens fuel your prayers (Nehemiah 1:4) Start by proclaiming the goodness of God (1:5) Confess your sins and inadequacies, and those of your group (1:6-7) Make sure you’re praying according to His will (1:8-9) Proclaim how good He is again, in thankfulness (1:10) Make your request (1:11) That is awesome!
How the Holy Spirit helps us pray:
chrislazo: Praying with His glory as our highest aim John 16:14a “[The Holy Spirit] will glorify Me.” Praying according to the truth about Him John 16:14bb “[The Holy Spirit] will take of Mine and disclose it to you.” Praying in a way that acknowledges His will, and purpose John 15:26 “[The Holy Spirit] will testify about Me.”
Felicia is doing fine.
labellavitaa: nicksheck: Praise Jesus.
chrislazo: Most condemned criminals went to the cross unwillingly. Jesus went to the cross overjoyed. Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12:2 Guess who He was thinking about?
1 Peter 1:10-12
10As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. 12It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced...

Yet another MRI tomorrow.....
notjusttrixieimme: whatitsliketodie: The last time I was at the Lung Center in Philadelphia they noticed a couple of spots on my liver that the doc thinks are cysts but he wants to be sure. Everything has to be pretty much perfect before a lung transplant, I guess, and this appears to be the last test they’ll need. So the hospital in Allentown will forward the results to the Lung Center and...
