Dr. Billy Graham went HOME today! I love this picture, Thankyou @deancurry, because it was taken at the #TacomaDone in 1983. I was there! On Friday night of that week my father-in-law, Dr. Fulton Buntain who was the chairman of the crusade, had a group of us young ministers in a side room to speak with Dr Graham before the event that night. I was so scared I was shaking. Someone asked Dr Graham to tell us how he had achieved such success. His response made us want to kneel down and weep in repentance. He covered his face with both hands as if to shield himself from the perceived praise of men and said...”Oh NO! I’m not successful. You men are successful. I feel like Martin Luther, I’m just a worm!” I never forgot that as long as I have lived. The greatest gospel preacher of our time...In his own mind..A WORM. God help me to remember Your greatness and my smallness! Thank God for the great FINISHER! Dr Billy Graham. #LoverOfPeople#FriendOfSinnersLikeMe
I once had the misconception that to succeed, there had to be a plan. An A-Z, fool proof system guaranteed for success. Once I realized my plans weren’t working, the excuses came up in attempt to save my ego. I was offered a trip on a rocket ship and I tried so hard to figure it all out, I missed the view.
I obviously knew I needed to re-evaluate, and for me, that meant letting go of the plan. Realizing nothing is fool proof, and fear is no excuse to not try. I began willing things to happen. Instead of “I want” or “I wish”, I started saying things like “I will”. Once I adapted a new line of thinking, the wall crumbled. I realized everyone is scared at some point, and if I wait until I’m an expert, I’ll never get there.
I then noticed my days were getting better, my attitude was positive, worry was fading, and even my bank account was slightly growing.
I’m now on my rocket ship, in my unplanned seat.... loving the view. 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀
Ever since creating my page to focus on home decor I've been struggling with how materialistic it is. In the big realm of things it's so unimportant. I never want my page to make anyone feel uncomfortable or that I'm bragging about what we have. In this home, God gets all the glory. We are beyond thankful for what he has done in our lives, and I hope to make this place a house of comfort and beauty. & That when people enter it they feel a sense of peace, and feel warmth and invitation into our lives, and the life we live for Jesus here. So while my pictures do focus on things of this world, let it be known my heart does not! Love you all, and thank you for following! Ps. Happy Monday!! 💕😘 #farmhousedecor#oldthingsmadenew#shadesofblue#wedolovejesus#loverofoldthings#loverofpeople
