"we don’t realize is that God is not limited to our grind. God is not on our time schedule, He doesn’t work within in the rules of our society, He doesn’t not bless us according to the way we think we should be blessed."
Test & Triumphs
Yes, God lavishes his children with material gifts and possessions but the truly blessed in scripture were the ones that had withstood the most testing. The spiritual titans that had undergone years of hardship and still believed, many were even martyred for their faith.

My entire life I have battled dry scalp. My mom said as a baby I had "cradles cap" which is excessive scalp dryness in newborns, but needless to say it's always been a battle. However a few years ago I began to pay closer attention to when I got dry scalp and skin versus when I was symptom free. I noticed that symptoms always showed up when I was experiencing mild dehydration. Times when I forgot to drink or stay on top of my water intake. This tended to happen more in the winter since I my body temperature is lower I don't get thirsty as often. As soon as I got my water levels back to normal my dry skin and scalp would disappear within a day. I've tried numerous topical scalp and skin treatments for dryness and nothing works half as good as simply staying hydrated. Hydration was also a big issue because I used to love salty foods and the salt would deplete my water levels. I wanted to share my experience because this may help someone with similar symtoms also to reinforce the idea that health starts within. I used to look at my body as different compartments but everything works together for overall good health. #healthyliving #healthtip #dryskin #beautytip #haircare #skincare #diet #hydration #paparoxi

#5AMClub Matthew 4:1-11 NLT “Will you pass the test?” We often think of test as feats to be conquered or milestones to reach. If we prepare, study or train then we will ace our exam. However, many of life’s test are things we do not see coming. Test that measure our character and how much work the Holy Spirit has done on our hearts. There are so many treasures within these scriptures but of the things that stood out to me was that Jesus was tested at his weakest; after He had fasted for 40 days in the wilderness. How would we fair in His position? After having a really tough day at work and a loved one asks for a favor do we snap or do it with a smile? After being unemployed for a while and hearing of a friend’s new job do we sincerely congratulate or pretend not to notice? After being celibate for a long time do we give ourselves a pass to go to second base or keep our boundaries? The tests don’t come when we are at our strongest but when we are weak. The weak moments show what we are made of. This is why it is so important to be fortified with God’s word, living and breathing scripture at our strongest points as well as our weakest; so when the test come we will pass. Jesus was able to pass because the word was his sword and refuge, when he was stripped to his core and had every reason to fail he clung tighter to the word more than anything. Praying we can pass our test in this season, that we don’t cling to our weaknesses or shortcoming but cling even harder to the word of God. - Khaleeqa “Paparoxi” #5AMClub #Test #faith #YourbeingMADE #Passyourtest #God #Jesus #love #paparoxi
