This is one of my biggest struggles. I have an A type personality and so I like to plan and execute on my goals and dreams. But at the end of the day, God is the author and I'm simply a minor character, if even that. It's up to Him. Not me. What is up to me however, is to use my voice to encourage and help others. Especially my brothers and sisters in Christ. This world is a harsh place. Let's continue to run the race and use our talents for the Lord #teamjesus#alltheway#notashamed#gospel#john316#proud#christian #🔥

The 5 Types of Crowns 👑 for Believers In Heaven⤵
1) The Incorruptible/Imperishable Crown: Also called the victor's crown. It is given to those for being truly self denying always putting others before themselves. This person not only serves but he also avoids sin in order to better serve God. Serving God is his first priority, finishing the race like a victor. See 1 Corinthians 9:24-25.
2) The Crown Of Rejoicing: This crown has also been named the "soul winners" crown, mentioned in 1 Thess 2:9. To those who are faithful witnesses to the saving grace of God and leads souls to Jesus. The verse indicates that God will be giving a crown to those who have witnessed to others and leading people to Christ. When you help someone to be led to the Lord, you have just been used as a vessel of God (1 Thess 2:10). God will judge you by your willingness and desire to be used by Him to witness to others, not necessarily on how many actually get saved.
3) The Crown Of Righteousness: To those who love and long for the coming of Christ, who anxiously wait and look forward to the day when He will return for His saints. This crown is given to those who have lived a good and righteous life for God while living down here on earth. See 2 Tim 4:7-8.
4) The Crown Of Glory: 1 Peter 5:1,4 tells us about this "elders crown" or as Peter called it, the crown of glory. God has a special crown for those spiritual followers who share the word of God. These could be preachers, ministers, missionaries, evangelists, youth leaders or any one who faithfully teaches the word of God to others. These people rarely get any recognition here in this life but their crown is waiting for them in heaven.
5) The Crown Of Life: It is for all believers who love the Lord (James 1:12), but it's also especially for those who endure sufferings, who bravely confront persecution for Jesus, even to the point of death, thus it's also called the "Marty'rs Crown" (Rev 2:10). As we get deeper into the end times, true believers will face this test. Christians who have been martyred for their faith throughout history will not only be given this crown of life, but other rewards once they enter into heaven.
You are greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved! ❤️

Healing takes time, commitment and hard work to the process and a lot of time that’s what we need, instead of an instant miracle God wants us to walk through whatever you are going through with him as your guide so that you can properly appreciate the end results. A lot of tunes we don’t value what we don’t with for and there is a since of gratitude when we have gone through something because of the healing process.
Embrace your healing process, it’s not easy but it’s sort it!.
